I have a Z68 board and 2 x 5850s. I'm using IntelHD for display. AMD driver is installed and windows7 recognized both cards.

However i cant get mining to work (tried CGminer, Diablo, Phoenix).

I believe CGminer says my OpenCL device is disabled. Diablo just crashed and Phoenix showed blank screen.

Have anyone got a setup like mine?

Its my workstation so IntelHD is preferred for display. I dont want mining affect my desktop performance. I also want to clock 5850s mem really low so its more efficient.

I searched and found none so forgive me if its been covered.

Depending on what version driver you have installed, you may need to use a VGA dummy plug.

If you update to the latest version you wont need the dummy plug.

I actually thought about it. But dont have the resistors to make them, store closed today

I dont think newer or older driver would matter. I'm using 12.3 as well as 12.4.

The reason i think we need to use dummy (back in 11.4 driver) was the issue with energy saving feature from AMD. They disable the device if its not connected to a monitor. What they "fixed" in the newer driver (i think) was to make sure one monitor connected to any of the GPU, which didnt work in my situation as i only connect the monitor to the IntelGPU.

I had a set-up like that. video from internal and mining on GPU. I did use a dummy plug. I was using XP and an older version of the SDK
