Normlly you shouldn't mine on a laptop as they are not made for high load 24/7  

I have a Nvidia geforce 820 m and a i3-4500u 8gb ram ddr3l.

And idk how much profit I will make. 

Please guide me..

Your going to make basically nothing. THose re too slow to show up on calculators.

 

And I don't think you have enough vram to use the gpu for many big cryptocurrencys.

If you just want to try it for the sake of learning you can checkout Nicehash.

 

If you're out for profit you might as well not even start. You quite literally won't even earn enough to buy a pack of gum.

 

There are other forms of mining though such as STORJ tokens. These are earned by renting out HDD space. It's not as hard on the equipment but it has ISP upload/download requirements and the ability to port forward. You can trade what you earn at exchange sites. You'll earn a lot more by being a good trader than through mining.

NVIDIA GeForce 820M can generate more than 0.01 USD monthly income with a 5.07 H/s hashrate on the ZEC - Equihash (EWBF) algorithm.

You'll be "earning" around 1 cent per month. I assume this doesn't take electrical costs into account. Meaning you'll end up losing money because your additional electric bill per month will be a lot higher than 1 cent.

That's about 1₹ per month. Your time would be better spent walking along a road looking for coins than setting that laptop up for mining.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wouldn’t bother. You would only be losing money with the electricity costs. 
 

However, if you want to carry on anyway, the best coin to mine would be Monero with your CPU.

The i3-4005u has a hash rate of 500H/s, according to randomx benchmarks. Plugging that value into this calculator, it seems you can get 0.2$(or 15₹) a week, which is so low that you may not even receive a payment altogether/transaction fees will wipe that out.

As long as you have no free electricity i wouldnt recoment mining with normal pc hardware like x86 based cpu´s or graphiccards. Those who make profit with that sit in low energy cost countrys using asic-based-rigs at big miningfarms. Be a good trader would be more profitable than pc-mining.
