I can't get my second monitor higher than 640x480 resolution

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've bought my second monitor (ASUS VH208D) a few days ago, and I've just set it to extended display at 1600x900.
Today I was f*cking around with the settings AMD Vision Control Settings and now the monitor crashes if I try to change something.

My graphics card is the 6990.

Can anyone please help me? frown.gif

Try to perform clean install and try Official Catalyst 12.1 or older. If you wish to use 12.2, try copy the files from previous Catalyst.

Thanks, but I don't think it's a driver issue, the screen just crashed when I changed something in catalyst at eyefinity options and after the crash it won't go back to 1600x900

The message looks the same as this one in the OP: http://www.overclock.net/t/1200392/help-i-broke-my-eyefinity#post_16197485

OK good lucks to you then. I posted in that thread above in case you didn't notice. smile.gif

 

You are not very specific in OP if your are trying to setup 3 monitors or just 2.

 

6990 shipped with one MiniDP to DVI Single Link Active Adapter. If that one is broken, then get this;

 

Accell Ultra AV Mini Display Port to DVI-D Single Link ... - Frys.com

 

Accell Mini DP - DVI-D Apdater

I have updated my drivers to that version. I will try a new adapter right now.

It works! The adapter was broke. Thank you Ken1649!

What I don't understand is how it suddenly stopped working. blinksmiley.gif
