Well after getting a new graphics card (7770) I can mine bitcoins at around 120 - 180 Mhash/s Depending if I run it at full power or not.

Now I thought I would try and mine myself an address using it but the miner just seems to not work.

Using Vanitygen (Linked below) oclvanitygen I set it off mining with reports of it mining at around 4MKeys/s but nothing was showing up after 5 mins worth of time(I tried a simple prefix of 1r).

I then tried using just vanitygen64 and in seconds it found an address.

Does anyone know why?

Is it possible to get / post debug logs? Perhaps OpenCL isn't installed /working correctly with your card. – LamonteCristo Dec 31 '12 at 23:04
The application starts and runs fine but then produces no keys, it don't error out at all. Running it in safe mode generates the key but is lots slower. Is output with the -v flag – Ryan Walmsley Jan 1 '13 at 11:12
