Hi MAH,
OK, so I’m guessing you’re following our introductory guide to Bitcoin mining with Bitminter… Let me know if that’s not the case.
I believe the problem here is that you have no compatible hardware which can work with Bitminter. You either need an ASIC or an OpenCL-comptabile graphics card. Check which graphics card you have in your machine and look for it in this info:
