Instructions for newbies from the basics
1. First you need to install drivers for your video cards.

I recommend using one of these (click on text to download):

2. After installing the drivers, get the latest version of SRBMiner from the Download page, and unpack it on C: drive

3. Open a command prompt in administrator mode so we can enable compute mode and disable crossfire on your video cards:

If you are using Windows 10 or Windows 8, move the mouse cursor to the bottom left corner of the screen (start button), right-click on it to open the menu and select Command Prompt (Admin) or Windows PowerShell (Admin).

If you unpacked SRBMiner to the C: drive, type this (example for version 1.6.5) in the elevated command prompt you just started :
              cd c:\SRBMiner-CN-V1-6-5
SRBMiner-CN.exe --setcomputemode

When the process is done, your video cards will be switched to mining mode, so you can get the maximum mining speed.
Now restart your computer so these settings could be enabled.

4. It's time to set SRBMiner so you can start earning some money.
You need to decide which coin you want to mine. I will give you an example for mining XMR (Monero) on Nanopool.

Open config.txt in notepad, it should look like this :
"cryptonight_type" : "normalv7",
"intensity" : 0,
"double_threads" : true,


For mining Monero you don't need to change anything in here, because the algo Monero uses is 'normalv7'.
If you for example want to mine Haven coin, the cryptonight_type should be set to 'haven'.
List of supported algos can be find on the Home page.

Open pools.txt in notepad, it should look like this :
"pools" :
{"pool" : "", "wallet" : "4A5hJyu2FvuM2azexYssHW2odrNCNWVqLLmzCowrA57xGJLNufXfzVgcMpAy3YWpzZSAPALhVH4Ed7xo6RZYyw2bUtbm12g.donation", "password" : "x"},
{"pool" : "", "wallet" : "4A5hJyu2FvuM2azexYssHW2odrNCNWVqLLmzCowrA57xGJLNufXfzVgcMpAy3YWpzZSAPALhVH4Ed7xo6RZYyw2bUtbm12g.donation", "password" : "x"}

In the default pools.txt file you have 2 pools defined, the one on the first position is called the main pool, the second is a failover pool.
You can have as much as you want failover pools. These pools are used when the miner can't connect to the main pool for some reason.

Again in this example the pool is already set to Nanopool, so you don't have to change that.
You need to change the 'wallet' to your own. A wallet address can be obtained from downloading the monero wallet and creating a new address, using an online wallet or you can even use a wallet address from an exchange.

5. Everything is set, time to start mining.
There is a file called start.bat in the directory where you unpacked the miner, and set all those config files.
Double click on this file, and the miner window opens.
After initializing your video cards if everyting went OK you just
