Dual Monitors in Crossfire - Page 2

post #11 of 19
It may require a driver reinstall after both monitors are plugged into the same primary card. Also which ports are you using? I don't think it matters for dual monitors but triple does require 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 DP.

So you do plug them into the same card?? Thats what I thought in the first place. I had them plugged in both DVI ports on the card.

Yep if I'm not mistaken when you put the bridge on it automatically disables the ports on the second card. With just two monitors using DVI ports is fine. If you do the driver reinstall and it still doesn't work try using 1 HDMI and 1 DVI instead.

Using 1dp is the requirement for eyefinity. Conversely you could run 1dp and 2dvi if you wanted.

Ah so he had them connected (displays) connected to each card?

No I did not. I tried that though and it still didnt work. Well I was surfing and turns out, one of the dvi ports is DIGITAL ONLY, meaning, that with my vga monitors I cant use both of em, even with the adapter.....
