Hey, so I'm completely new at mining. I'm trying to join the BitClockers pool. I've set up a worker and entered the relevant info into GUIMiner, but when I hit start it sticks at either "Starting" or "Connecting" and when I check the console it looks like this:
                                               
                                                2011-11-26 02:05:08: Running command: poclbm.exe (worker address) --device=0 --platform=0 --verbose
                                                2011-11-26 02:05:08: Listener for "BC h8" started
                                                2011-11-26 02:05:09: Listener for "BC h8": No device specified or device not found, use -d to specify one of the following
                                                2011-11-26 02:05:09: Listener for "BC h8": [ 0 ]   Quadro FX 3800M

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and an nVidia QuadroFX 3800m. I have the latest video card drivers from my computer's vendor (because the ones from the nvidia don't work that well with my card) Just in case, my processor is an i7 Q820. Thanks

Honestly you dont even want to mine with that card. Its pretty pointless. Mining with anything other than AMD HD5xx0 or 6xx0 (or FPGAs) is pointless. But if you insist, I suspect the OEM drivers dont include OpenCL?

Try the miner linked in my signature, its web based. If that works, then you do have opencl. If it doesnt work either, you'll need other drivers, but its really not worth bothering with.

Well it does support OpenCL and CUDA - it only came out last year. The miner in your sig works, but you seem to be right about this card not being good for mining. I'm only getting around 21, 22 Mh/s. I don't suppose there's any way to get it working with GUIMiner, though? I hate using java apps. Thanks

You probably won't squeeze a lot more out of that card. In any case, you'll be netting a loss after electricity.

Dont know about guiminer. You may need another kernel for it. If you want to mine at such leisure pace (and high electricity cost), maybe give gminer a try. There are also CUDA optimized miners around, but I dont know how up to date they are. Pretty much everyone has given up on mining on nvidia and cpus, its just not worth the cost.
