Monitor Doesn't Go Into Power Save With 5870


Does this happen to anyone else? When the computer is supposed to turn off the display, the screen goes blank, but the backlight doesn't turn off. I'm pretty sure it's not an issue with the monitor, since it went into power save mode just fine w/ my previous graphics card (a 9800gtx). I've got an nec 20wmgx2 if that makes a difference.

Monitor Goes To Power Save When 3d Graphics Started

Shortly (less than a minute) after starting 3d graphics my monitor goes to a black screen (power save on). Seems like everything else is functioning as i can still talk on ts2.computer is a dell (i know. ), I replaced the power supply, updated the video drivers, updated my bios, changed all my "power" functions to off in windows and bios. Same thing happens. I forced the fan speed on vid card(x800xt) to 100%, temp doesn't get above 70c before screen drops out.

Monitor Stuck In Power Save Mode After Coming Back From Long Idle

Not sure if this is os, display or graphics card trouble; i have my displays set to turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity in windows 7 with a nvidia gtx 260. If i come back to the computer, after it has been idle for a long time (especially when logged out) the secondary display will turn on but the primary display will be stuck in power save mode. When i move the mouse or hit a key, the secondary display (dell 2407wfp) shows the wallpaper image or blank screen if logged out but effectively turns back "on".

The primary display (dell 2408, much newer) flickers for a sec, shows the dvi icon, then goes back to power save mode and turns off as if its not getting a signal from the graphics card. Turning the monitor on or off again does not solve the problem. Restarting the computer (holding down the power button) does solve the problem, but i'd rather not hard-restart it like that every time i come back to my computer. Sometimes by bringing a window to the foreground on the primary display, such as pressing ctrl alt del then opening task manager blind, or right clicking on the secondary display and opening the nvidia control panel, i can get the display to turn back on.

How Much Power Do The ' Green ' Drives Save / Use ?

I currently have an htpc running two 400gb satas. I was wondering if i purchased a 1 tb 'green' drive from western digital or samsung, if it would save a substantial amount of power usage and heat? I currently download with the htpc and run movies with the occasional web surfing and burning, no gaming on this rig. Does anyone have any idea what the watt usage and idle watt is of a 'regular' hd is? Links to this information?

Xfx 5870 Second Monitor Issues

I have been having an issue on 2 different systems that have xfx 5870's in them. Under windows 7 x64, almost every time you boot the system, the extended desktop on the second monitor will not properly enable on a reboot. The system shows the monitor is enabled as an extended desktop, but you have to disable and reenable it for it to actually display an image. Has anyone else experienced this?

5870 Crossfire 4th Monitor

I can't get the second card to detect any displays. Has anybody else had this problem? I have crossfire enabled and i can see the performance increase in bc2 but only with 3 displays. I can even hookup the 4th monitor in place of one of the eyefinity monitors and it detects it. I have tried dvi and hdmi in the second card and neither works. Do i need to try the 10. 3 beta? I am currently 10. 2.

Asus 5870 Not Detecting Second Monitor

I've double checked all the usual stuff, drivers are good, card is good, outputs are good, cables are good. I just can't seem to get my 5870 to "see" my second monitor. I just threw it in my system, without a reformat, i used to be running a 8800gts 640. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking its likely a reformat and reinstall of everything may fix the issue.

5870 Dual Monitor Problem

So today i finally got my new 5870 xxx edition

http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=n82e16814150456&cm_re=5870-_-14-150-456-_-product

I had completely removed my old nvidia drivers, and installed the latest ati drivers. Installed the 5870 and right at the start started having problems with duel display configuration. Can someone please answer me, for duel monitors is the hdmi and the 1st dvi port (on top) are the once im supposed to use for this setup? Because using 2 dvi ports doesn't seem to work. The 2nd dvi monitor is always black, even if you only use a single monitor using 2nd dvi it doesn't work. Whats strange when both monitors connected via dvi on the 1st monitor when accessing catalyst the 2nd display is there, but doesn't matter what i tried it doesn't want to turn on, you can see in the options, but the monitor it self doesn't want to turn on, even tho everything is on for this setup to work. For now i got this setup working using hdmi to hdmi and 1st dvi to dvi connection, but makes me wonder if the 2nd dvi is broken or something. Or is only meant to be using using 3rd monitor. Just in case my monitors are dell 2408wfp 24" and dell 2407wfp-hc 24" (both of them work using 1st dvi connection and dont work using 2nd).

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

5870 Dual Monitor Screen Tear / Flickering

I just got a 5870 from 4870 and immediately noticed that whenever the automatic 2d to 3d clock jumps up to full 850/1200 there is a significant flicker to a tear in the #2 monitor only and when i use extended desktop. It is repeatable and only happens at that point. I graphed it and can see the vccd/vccd1 amp jump is from 2. 6a/4. 2a to 11. 4a/12a>. I am using a msi afterburner/rivatuner instead of the smartdoctor from asus that came with it because i had it with the 4870 and liked it and it also has the low the de-clocking limit at 600mhz/900mz instead of the other 157/300mhz. All the temps are low when this happens 38-40c . No problems at all on single monitor though there is significant throtling up and back for the vccd volt/amp and the clocks. All the time there is not more than 30-40%gpu use. I can reproduce it easily by just scrolling up and down some web pages. When the 2d is flat line (600/900mhz) no problems and when i am in a game or max gpu use no 2nd monitor issue. I have done every switch and combo, hdmi dvi, both dvi ports dont know. It is like a recurring short. Like a lap top i had where the wear on the hinges causes some shorts to the panel but this screen tear or flicker is fast and easy to pin point. Though the vddc amps jump up and down, the gpuz graph looks like a comb or gap tooth smile, the volts are steady flat line during the clocks and amps jumping so the regulator seems ok . I dont know why the amp draw is dropped so low even when the clocks are at 600/900. If everything stayed level there would be no screen tear. Even with the bouncing around there shouldnt be that effect in the 2 monitor for extended desktop. I know there are any number of other people with the issue , i have gotten no response, nor have they , from amd/ati , asus either and have posted at those forums without any corrective experiences. Some suggestions for similar types of problems but nothing for the same . I am using win7 x64 bit home premium. Many other people , not all though, are 7/64 as well though some xp and vista 64 too. I should have enough power i just put a thermaltake xt 750 in and i used a mushkin enhanced 580 with the 4870 and no problem. I had the 580 running this as well till last week and never had a power problem, never had any problem. I built this last nov and have kept up to date with the drivers, put in ccc 10. 2 last week, gigabyte m4a79xtd evo, asus eas5870, phenomii 3. 4 (oc 3. 77 not for testing)965be, gskill ddr3 1600 pc12, 800, 2x samsung f1 750s, xigmatek s1283 cooler, thermaltake xt750, win7 x64 home prem, hp 1270dvd/cd24xsupermulti, liteon 8xbd/dvd combo, cm rc 690 4 scythe s-flex case fans 1sine intake , 3exhaust- top/rear . The card and case are well cooled and heat has not been an issue for this problem, i would appreciate any insights as to what i might do to correct this. I have tried just about all i can think of, some suggestions, remove and reinstall directx with sdk version someone said helped a like situation but heat may have been related to his. Mostly just trying process of elimination. Have taken off or disabled software to check on conflicts. I use the 2nd monitor to keep tool sets or other utilities so i can keep the larger screen in tact or in 2 parts. I tried to make a group but with different size monitors it just isnt right though might be a fix for someone with the issue with twin displays.

Ati Radeon Hd 5870 Crossfirex With 1600x900 Monitor Display

Do you recommend ati radeon hd 5870 crossfirex to a 1600x900 monitor display? Well, only one thing matters when you're wondering whether or not this graphics card will work with that monitor is the amount of ram (known as vram) in the graphics card. But trust me, two 5870's will have more than enough vram on your graphics card. Just make sure you're are getting a very high end amd processors at least. But i would recommend a mid-range to high-end i7 processor so there is no bottle-necking the graphics (that's where a certain part isn't able to use its full potential because of another part. An example of a bottleneck is the two 5870's paired up with a sempron processor, idk any idiot who would do that, but that an example of extreme bottle-necking). I'm not sure what graphics card you have but theoretically, with to radeon hd 5870's, you could run up to 6 monitors with the 5xxx series eyefinity feature. It would be pretty awesome to run 6 monitors at a time!

5870 Crossfire Performing Worse Than A Single 5870

I just bought 2 5870's today after much research and reading benchmarks they are the way to go, and i have installed them, and in crossfire they are performing, well under what a single 5870 should be doing. My 3d mark vantage score with crossfire is 14, 186. Yes, in crossfire, i heard it should be up near the 22, 000 mark. Also, in mw2 with settings maxed out and crossfire enabled, i am getting an average of 48fps, according to guru 3d it should be 128fps at my resolution with a single card, my old 8800gt's in sli were getting me 90+ and the 5870's should eat the 8800gt's allive and then some. I have the worlds worst luck, so if you guys could point me in the right direction that would be awesome, cause i really want to put my hard earned dollars to work as im sure you can understand.

Turn Off Monitor Under Power Options

I have noticed that my monitor may stay on long after the time limit set in control panel/power options. This usually happens after i retire for the night. I have determined that the only time it happens is when i place my logitech lasermouse in its charging cradle, . If i leave the mouse on the pad, the monitor shuts down, if i place the mouse in the charging cradle, the monitor stays on. I have no idea whether there is a fix for this.

Lcd Monitor Power Problem

I've have a problem with an lcd monitor. The on/off button will freeze in the on position (green light on), such that when i push the button, it will not turn off. Most of the time i'm not even aware that it's happened, until i reboot the computer. When the screen goes black, just after the windows xp logo and just before the "welcome" screen, it remains black with the power light still on. When i unplug it and plug it back in, the screen comes up just fine. This seems to also happen randomly when the screen goes black just before switching to a screen saver. I've tried to disable all running programs with msconfig to see if a program was causing this. I was almost convinced that my trend micro anti-virus was doing it, as i seemed to be able to replicate and stop the problem by enabling or disabling the program. So i uninstalled the program, but now i noticed that it's happening again. Although i can't pinpoint the problem, it seems to be just predictable enough that i'm reluctant to think that it's an electrical issue. Any ideas?

Replaced Power Supply Now Monitor Not Getting Signal

I first looked at it and determined that the power supply was bad so i replaced it. I see the fan above the processor has started and it sounds as if the computer has started but my test monitor will not get the signal. Along with my monitor not getting the signal, it appears as if the keyboard and mouse are not getting power as well because the mouse has a light on it which comes on when it gets power. I also attached a thumb drive to the pc and it too does not get power to it. I am thinking that the board was damaged when the power supply went out but if anyone has any suggestions as to what else i should look at i would like to hear it. Btw the computer is a e-machines c2280 and not too sure what the other specs are since the computer was broken when it was brought to me.

Power Supply For Eizo Flexscan L66 Monitor

I have same problem with eizo flexscan l66 too. I localized power supply connector on monitor's mainboard pcb - it is 6-pin with last pin not used. My conclusion are as follow: ground is on pin 2 (black cable). On pin 1 (red cable) is +12 or +15v because it is voltage for supply fluorescent lamps's inverter circuit. For rest 3 pins (3, 4, 5) i'm not sure. In other models of eizo lcd monitors exist voltages like +5 v and +3. 3v. Maybe voltages are +15v, +12v, +5v and +3. 3v, mabe +12v ( or +15v), +5v, +3. 3v, +2. 5v. It is unknown.

Flashing Laptop Monitor When Unplugging Power Cable

I have an acer travelmate 3260. I have only had the computer for about two months so the battery is still relatively new. When i unplug my power cable the monitor flashes (black screen black screen very fast) but when its plugged in its fine. I have tried setting the battery usage to to maximum battery life (i.e. Lcd functions at min) but the same problem occurs, i have also tried leaving it flashing (about 5 minutes) nothing changes. Im pretty sure its a battery problem but hopefully you guys have a solution or some tests i could run to find one.

Monitor Goes Black But Led For Power Stays Green

I have a dell 17in monitor that will show a pic for a second then goes black but the led for power stays green and doesn't change to amber. This means it still thinks it is getting information but will not show anything. The back-light is going off so it looks as if the monitor is off but the green light begs to differ, anyone have any input on how to fix it ? It does this on multiple computers.

How Can I Save My Email To Floppy ?

This is probably a silly question and there's probably a simple answer but for the life of me i can't remember how to save my email to a floppy disk?

I'm currently using my old puter while the new one is getting fixed and have received important email that i've saved by creating a "saved email" folder in my email. I've tried numerous things but i can't seem to find a way to save this email to a floppy so i can transfer the email to my new puter later on. Can someone tell me how to do this please?

Pc Wont Boot And Monitor Switches Into Power Saving Mode

My problem is that my pc wonít start up. First, the monitor sets on (green light) but then immediately switches into power saving mode (no view at all), and meanwhile the pc boots up, runs for about 10 seconds, and then the internal speaker recites a beep code (once only). Iíve recorded it, so it can be heard at http://media. Putfile.com/bios-beep-code. The pc wonít show any image on the monitor when starting up, not at any point, the monitor just goes straight to power saving mode. My motherboard is asus a8n-sli deluxe, bios rev. 1016. Ok, here's what i've got so far:

I have booted the pc with only the motherboard, the video card, the processor and the power supply unit on. The beep code still persists, listen here: http://media. Putfile.com/bios-beep-code. Then i took off the video card, and the beep didn't change.could this mean that the card is responsible since the monitor doesn't show any image, and because the card isn't registering at all, and thus producing the beep whether it is onboard or not? Or should i look at the power supply unit, the motherboard or the processor, all unlikely?

I've ruled out the ram as the cause of the problem, i've got 4 sticks of it and i've tested each stick individually. Also, the psu does generate power to the pc as it does go on, the power light is on, the gpu led is on as is the motherboard led. The fans are all working as well. I've also re-set the cmos, replaced the cmos battery and double checked all the wirings in the pc. I've left the psu and the monitor cables detached from anything for more than an hour to clear any static charges as well. All the dusty parts have been cleaned. Well, as i have an award bios, the beep code suggests that it's the video card that's the problem here. The problem is, that i haven't got another card to test, and no compatible pc to test the current card in. Should i buy a new card? It'll be an expensive step, and i dare not go there if i'm not sure. I've recorded the whole start-up process with all the loading clicks in case of anything unusual, you can listen to it here: http://media. Putfile.com/pc-start-up-sounds. Tell me if you hear anything out of place other than the beep code. What i'd like to know now, is that what is the most likely culprit? I can and will replace it, but i'm not keen on having to replace the video card, the psu, the motherboard and the processor before the set-up finally works.
