  • hello pimps, we've got a problem here
    please help

    when I run gputool --config I get errors and am unable to get the config file to loat up on all gpus. switching the number and location of gpus doesn't really do much but on some of my rigs I am able to get more gpus to load the config but none will load after one fails and gets this error.
    see below for command output

  • i STILL have the same issue on ALL 5 of my rigs..... i hope they do something soon


  • Staff

    Hi , sorry that your post was not replied in a timely fashion. This error means your nvidia was not picked up by the GUI which is needed for nvidia cards.
    Most likely it's a cable/riser/power issue, try this process, https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/53/the-dance-physical-hardware-troubleshooting G

    TLDR: Break the rig down to one working GPU and build it up one by one, using the gputool --status and or gputool --reset
