GPUs not running - detecting motherboard as GPU?

  • Hi,

    I'm having an issue with my rig not mining all of the sudden. I get this error where it says I have 5 GPUs when I actually only have 4. Maybe it's detecting the motherboard display? Anyone have any ideas? Everything is up to date as far as pimp and ubuntu.

    Hello markbreen2112,

    Looks to me like you've already found your problem.

    Onboard video is not supported on PiMP OS. As per the Motherboard Setup Guide (https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/9/setting-up-motherboards-for-mining) onboard video is to be turned off in the motherboard BIOS.

  • Staff

    Correct, although we are working on a way to support onboard graphics too!

    Also, Wanted to add: Plug your HDMI or Displayport cable for the monitor into the "Bottom-most" Port of the GPU closest to the CPU (The "First GPU")

  • Thanks melt and docdrydenn, got it figured out!
