You were right it was no different with the 380X
Did you try the GPU again? The
setx command changes the permanently stored environment variables - but they don’t come into effect in the command window they’re executed in… you need to close the command window and open a new one.
OK thanks Ill give it a try now
Which ethminer are you using?
@Ilan1 What’s the result if you try the following:
EDIT: You should get something like:
C:\Program Files\Ethereum 0.9.41>ethminer --list-devices Listing OpenCL devices. FORMAT: [deviceID] deviceName  Tahiti CL_DEVICE_TYPE: GPU CL_DEVICE_GLOBAL_MEM_SIZE: 3221225472 CL_DEVICE_MAX_MEM_ALLOC_SIZE: 2657511014 CL_DEVICE_MAX_WORK_GROUP_SIZE: 256 C:\Program Files\Ethereum 0.9.41>
0.9.41 I think
Do I need to type something in the CMD first to get that
Sorry I have ethminer in that dir. You have it in a folder on the desktop - there’s no path set so you’ll have to navigate to the directory that ethminer is in.
EDIT: Another thought is that windows likely won’t load the correct drivers for the cards by default. I’d grab the latest drivers from here (if you haven’t already!):
that’s right what do I type to navigate to the folder on my desktop?
downloading drivers now thanks …
Find the folder in Explorer (i.e. the folder eth under Desktop/Alt Coin Mining) highlight it and hold down shift. Right-click should give you an option to open a command window
sorry I am doing that but cant see the option to open a command window
You’re one level too far down. It needs to be up one directory and shift right-click on the yellow eth folder
ah got it open now
