Thanks for trying to help, but neither of these suggestions make sense to me.

My problem is i cannot see the post and get into the bios with the monitors hooked up to the "master" card, or the card that has output in crossfire mode in windows. Therefore, how can i change the setting with the cards hooked up like this if i cannot see what i am changing in the bios like you described?

Second, How is it even remotely possible to damage the card or the monitor by unplugging and replugging the dvi monitor cables? I have done this hundreds of times with no problems... That is the only way i can get into the bios.

There must be a solution for this problem!

Uhhh you're not going to damage a card or monitor by swapping the display or the port on your cards. That's ridiculous. rolleyes.gif

YMMV.

 

Take care.

In windows display properties, make sure your main display is identified as "1"
Give that a go.

I will honestly admit that i was skeptical about this because i assumed it was a bios problem. But i checked the settings, they were reversed, i fixed it and swapped the cables so my monitors were correct orientation again.

After a reboot I now see bios and bootup on BOTH monitors!

Perfect! Thanks!

AMD Crossfire & Eyefinity are different from Nvidia SLI & Surround.

 

Crossfire & Eyefinity will only work if all monitors are connected to the first 7970. If you have monitor(s) plug to the second, third or fourth 7950, will break Crossfire. And the other 7970 will be nothing but as an additional port for extended desktop.

 

In your case, during POST screen there's no primary or secondary displays if all monitors are plugged to the first primary card (in BIOS first initialize PCIe) upsidedwnsmiley.gif

 

Primary, Secondary, Clone, Duplicate  or SLR is after drivers are loaded  lmaosmiley.gif

UPS or Fedex will definitely refund you your shipping charges. I've had to dispute them with UPS before.
