Hello, I am looking for someone to help troubleshoot my computer and start mining for vanity addresses.
I would pay a small amount for any of you willing to webchat with me to solve my problems. Please PM me today if you're interested! Thanks!

What exactly is the problem? Are you mining vanity addresses for yourself or mining for a pool?

What GPU do you have and how do you know it's only using the CPU?

well firstly, i have a hd 6950 and i know it's only using the CPU because it's stuck at a speed of 600Kkeys/sec instead of 20mkeys per sec

Well not to be rude, but are you sure you are using oclvanitygen from the package created by sam7 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=25804)? Make sure it's oclvanitygen (not vanitygen and not oclvanityminer).

And have you made sure to use this format?

Code:
$ ./vanitygen -P 041d2e778ae6d9124736df131cd22d3a2483f336c55156d87a84c4bdc6d89f8518e33de85ae0f907a7128c476281bc8cc7742b43a54ccc2c7824dc4c4a438a7fbc 1Boat

so just copy and paste then? I've also got a crash when i use oclvanitygen.exe -i -P 04FA53359D811463B6698E7AB54BF228E016497A960078B...B1EFBF82CC7E741A2FC36B17 1(prefix)

First off, it appears to me that you're not using sam7's version but rather the one 'Lifeboat' oclvanitygen edition. My advice would be to try sam7's from the link I posted and see if that does anything. How are the drivers for your GPU - are they up to date?

Apparently, the drivers are not meant to be up to dat, as sam7r's versionm have some compatibilty issues with 13+ drivers. I've tried the same thing
