I just put together a gigabyte ga990fxa ud3, amd fx 8120, 16gig gskill 1600 cl9 ripjaw , sapphire 7950 twin x oc 925/1250 and boost supposedly stock, in win7 x64 ult. I am not able to get the hdmi to work. best it does is show up dim. I can not even get sound now. i am hoping it is a driver conflict, but, I have used 3 of the best, driver cleaners, though there were no build up of any length of time since the whole rig is only a week or 2weeks old. I have carefully followed the directions to remove and reinstall the amd drivers and the realtek drivers and any nVidia there might be, since this board is a cross platform though i only have amd hardware now. atiman, driver sweeper and driver cleaner from hardware heaven, it is older too, but had worked in the past. I had this going to an onkyo 608 amp which had been working a day ago with the supposedly trouble some 5870 gpu. I never had any trouble using it to run the samsung 2430 monitor and LG 42ld550 LCD tv. it ran in one and 2 monitor setup but mostly i wanted to be able to get onkyo to do the master audio and other lossless audio on hd dvd and blu rays. i never had any trouble up to a day ago when i put this new computer in the place of the last one ,which is essentially as similar as can be prior to upgrade. on a gigabyte 890fxa with the 5870 running the same catalyst 12.8, 12.10, 12.11beta no troubles with all kinds of audio set ups. headphones out of the front and hdmi out of the back to the avr,onkyo LG tv. for a bit over 2days, i have not been able to get the new stuff to preform in the audio side. video is ok but I worry that the driver issue i have been tracking down through numerous re installations, may be a bad hdmi port on the new sapphire 7950. I have tried brand new hdmi cables, a couple of tried and true ones that work , all work with the 5870/890fxa box. I can get the hdmi to do video only with the dvi going to the Samsung monitor that has no speakers other than the front jack on the computer chassis. the audio has come and gone with the hdmi but i can get the digital audio port on the back to get 2channels to the onkyo. I have no luck with the hdmi directly to the tv either but this tv does not support arc and i have to use the spdif optical to the avr anyway. it works but doesnt support the better audio features the hdmi does for bd/hd video through the computer. I have cyberlink power dvd 12, which doesnt recognize any hdmi now either nor does my other go to Media player classic and i just installed the newest codec 9.4.4 in 32 and 64. All this has taken most of the last 3 days and with searching similar issues and them scanning and reading them , i am getting burnt out.
I am only looking for any suggestions, if there are any more left as I try to figure out what i can be doing wrong or missing, besides having a bad card. i did post on the sapphire forum but have not gotten any thing back and the only couple of posts close to mine seem shut or no one has gotten to them yet, only been a couple/few days.
thanks
