  1. Hey, I am new to cryptocurrency mining, and currently using cgminer 3.7.2 (downloaded from this address: http://cryptomining-blog.com/460-download-cgminer-3-7-2-with-gpu-support-for-windows/) I have followed the instructions from this man (https://toughnickel.com/personal-finance/How-to-Mine-Bitcoins-With-a-GPU-Using-CGMiner), which seemed to make sense in my head, but apparently not to the program. The only difference to his instruction is that I created my bitcoin wallet with Electrum. I've noticed that the default pools in the 'cgminer.conf' file do not have any disruptions in the program's attempt to mine, and as soon as I edit the configuration file to find my worker at antpool.com, the cgminer.exe eventually loops the following message: Error -4: clCreateBuffer (padbuffer8), decrease TC or increase LG Failed to reinit GPU thread 0 Thread 0 still exists, killing it off Thread 1 no longer exists I'm not sure if this has something to do with my computer, the way I've linked cgminer to antpool to electrum, or if I'm just plainly mentally deficient, or if it's all three of those things.
