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.

Asus 5870 Displayport Native

I have a asus 5870 connected to two iiyama 18inch (1280*1024) and one hp 24inch lp2475w connected via display port (using display port cable native attach). The hp randomly flashes on and off

I am using windows 7 64bit. Any suggestions? I have been through the forums search and have read people flashing their cards. How can i find out which firmware i have currently, would it be worth flashing?

I have a 850w power supply. Would it better to use a second card (which i already have) for the two iiyama and use the dvi for the 24inch hp on the 5870?

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.

5870 Dual Monitor Problem

So today i finally got my new 5870 xxx edition

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!

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.

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.

Asus Vh242 Monitor Sound

How do you get sound on asus vh242 monitor? I've bought a new monitor and connected the asus vh242 monitor to my old computer via vga. This model has vga, dvi and hdmi input. Once i get a hdmi cable, i will connect that to my ps3 and will connect future new computer through a dvi cable. Problem is, i'm not getting any sound from the one connection i have made to this monitor to my computer. This monitor has built-in speakers and a hole to put headphones in. Monitor is connected to pc through vga. Is that why i'm not getting any sound? I'm not too bothered about this as i can get sound connected through my pc obviously, but i'm a bit worried when ps3 is connected and will i get sound then?

Basically, does sound go through a hdmi cable so i can get sound whilst using ps3?

Is sound meant to go through vga and/or dvi?

Asus Lcd Monitor Displaying Grey Screen

Last night my little sister had her friend over, and while i was asleep apparently her friend was using my computer. All i know is she had a webcam hooked up to it. But today when i go to use it, the monitor was displaying a grey screen, and it was totally unresponsive. I couldn't even hard reset. To turn it off i had to flip the switch on my psu. When i rebooted it still showed the gray screen but after a while, like 10 times longer than normal, it finally loaded and displayed properly. I couldn't figure it out, so for the time being, i left it alone. I went back to look at it a few minutes ago. It had been maybe 4 hours. And it responded this time when i moved the mouse, but the screen was grey again. I rebooted (button finally worked again) and still grey screen.

Detecting Properties Of Processor

I purchased some new parts today and assembled a computer. I thought i purchased an athlon xp 2400+, and that's what it says on the cpu box. Windows thinks otherwise. If i right click on my computer and go to properties, it says it's an athlon xp 1800+. I was a little suspicious when the box the processor came in looked like it had been tampered with (previously opened and repackaged, in a half-assed kind of way). My first thought was that someone had just returned it, so i went ahead and installed everything. But now that windows is reporting that it's an 1800+, i'm a little worried. So. 1. Is there any chance windows is mis-detecting it?

2. Is there another program i can run that will tell me what processor i'm using and give me a ghz estimate?

Cd Drive Not Detecting Any Cds

Just recently, my cd-rom drive stopped detecting any cds. I thought that i might've knocked loose an ide cable [highly unlikely but, hey, who knows, right?] When i had been tinkering with it not too long ago. There's also a cd-rw hooked to the same ide plug [the secondary] and the rw works just fine. The comp detects the drive [i see the d: in my computer] but when i put in a cd, the drive doesn't detect it. Any ideas for reasons/tests/solutions?

Usb Ports Not Detecting The Devices

My pc was hung (have a habit of not switching off my pc) i tried to reboot it, it wudnt do so, i waited till afternoon, it rebooted once, but windows did not load, then in the evening, it started working all of its own (read : windows did not load) so i did an upgrade of xp sp2, so while i was trying to update it, when the setup loads all the files (im talking of the boot-from-cd method). It said that my board doesnt seem to have acpi support and asked me to press f7 while the setup prompted me to press f6 to install 3rd party scsi or raid drivers, so i did, pressed f7 and got over with, next i tried to repair the installation (c:winxp) it stopped midway and said oembios.sys could not be copied (my disk is not faulty, read on) i tried again and again, and in the night i was able to reach the setup without bypassing the acpi (pressing f7 that is) so i upgraded my windows and booted into the setup. Now, the installation was almost complete, and it asked for the language and locale settings, i noticed my mouse was not connected (usb mouse) so i plugged it in, and my pc hung, i restarted, but my optical mouse did not have any light underneath it, that means, it wasnt working, i tried unplugging-replugging it many times, no avail, then i got my old ps/2 mouse and got over with the installation, once in windows, i tried to install my mouse, nothing, my mouse wasnt even being detected, (earlier i used the same mouse) and neither were any of the other usb devices (viz. Webcam, pendrive, ipod etc. ). So i uninstalled the usb devices and rebooted, it found the usb hub but not the devices, so i formatted my c: and did a clean install of windows, but, even now, i have the same problem, i cannot use my usb devices, my mouse, ipod (it is drawing current but it cannot be synchronized) my webcam, etc.

Computer Is Not Detecting Removable Drives

Since i re-installed my os (there were no problems when i repaired it) i haven't tried connecting stuff through my usb ports, and 2 days ago i tried connecting my digital camera, then it made the usual *du-ding* noise, but a "removable devise detected" window didn't pop up. So i tried reinstalling my software that came with the camera (but i am 99% sure that the software doesn't do anything, because i could access my camera at my cousins with no software) then i tried my mp3 player (a venture vl-336), and it wasn't detected either

So i am sure that it's something with my usb drives, but i am clueless on what to do, and i'm tired of doing endless google searches, so maybe one of you know what to do, i'm running xp pro sp2, so i shouldn't need a driver (i've never needed one for my camera or mp3 player). Oh, and just for the record, if i put in a cd or dvd a window pops up asking what i would like to do with it, much like what is supposed to happen with my camera. (My camera is a pentax optio s4)

I call up a friend and i have a 51 minute talk with him, we download a driver (i have a nforce 400) but here's all the info on this box my motherboard came in: msi k8 mainboard, v-class, nvidia c51g + mcp51g chipset based, k8ngm-v. I don't know if any of that will help. So we install the ethernet and usb driver and nothing, i still get the *du-ding* noise, but my camera nor my mp3 player show up under "my computer" as "devices with removable storage" like they did before i "repaired" my xp os. If i go to my computer (right click) > manage > storage > disc manager, and then plug in my camera or mp3 player, i can get it to show up there, but it doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it, so if i put it as "z", it doesn't show up under "my computer", but i can right click it in the device manager, and "open" and then access it from there. I thought about making sure my usb ports are enabled in my bios (if possible), but i don't have any idea what screens to go to, and what to look for. I've seen a few people with this problem, but no solutions.

New Motherboard Is Not Detecting Ide Drives

Ive bought a new system with the evga sli 680i 122-ck-nf68 motherboard. The rom drives, psu, and hard drives are older. Psu is a few months old. Hard drive is a few years. I have an ide cable connecting to a hard drive and dvd burner. The hard drive is on the master and set for cable detection. The burner is on the slave and set for cable detection. They both are getting power. When the motherboard boots it scans for ide and sata devices to find nothing. I go into bios to try loading the drives there. No luck. I have switched the ide cable with an old one, no luck. And from what i can tell, none of the pins are bent.

Detecting Array - Black Screen

Recently my pc hung in the "windows is shutting down" stage of the shutdown process, so i used the power button to turn it off. Next day i boot up to get past the biostar logo screen, press f1 to boot up in the choice menu then get to nother black screen saying "detecting array. " Nothing happens after this. A few more attempts at booting un, using the power key to turn off i manage to boot up. Now next day i find the computer shuts down fine but it now hangs at the biostar logo screen, keyboard lights flash up then off, mouse and keyboard do nothing screen is stuck at the logo screen for the biostar motherboard. I tried again, then again but it only boots randomly. Im on now but i had to unplug everything in the back of the pc except the keyboard and hammer on the delete button to get into the bios, from there it will restart and boot fine. Any suggestions?!
