Hey everyone, I'm new to bitcoin mining and I am trying to setup my computer for it.
I currently have 2 5850's and an i5 750.
I am running poclbm with these settings:
Code:
start /DC:\bitcoin\poclbm poclbm.exe poclbm.exe -d1 --host=deepbit.net --port=8332 -- *** --device 0 v -w 128 -f60
I tried launching another instance using thte -d2 command but it says that there are only 2 devices, my i7 and my first 5850. I am averaging at about 243000 khash/s on my single card. How do I get both working properly?
I have crossfire off.

plug a monitor (or dummy-plug) into your second card to activate it on Catalyst


Code:
... -d1 ..... --device 0 ...

probably not related to your problem, but strange anyway, that you set the device twice, first you set -d 1, then you set --device 0,
decide to use 1, or 0, both doesnt make sense.

I have no second monitor or dummy plugs. Is there any other way to do this?

You can enable crossfire to mine with both cards, but expect one of them to lag behind the other.  I had to do this until I got myself a dummy plug.

Also, assuming you already have a DVI-VGA adapter, making a dummy plug costs one dollar + a trip to radio shack
