DVI D to Achieva Shimian Huge problems after GPU Upgrade.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had an AMD HD6870 and it worked fine with my monitor. Today I decided to upgrade to a 7970 at Micro Center (30 min away). I get home and The bios and windows has green lines everywhere. I call Diamond and AMD and it was pointless. Then I realized the 7970 only had a dual link DVI-I port. SO I returned it and got the Zotac GTX 680 w/4GB. I plugged it in and I'm still having the same problem. I plugged it into both ports on the 680 and nothing is working. Can anyone please help me?

DVI-I connection isn't the problem. DVI-I just means it can do analog and digital (DVI-D) signals so it should work fine. My 7950 also has the DVI-I and has some colored static issues with my QNIX. It goes away if I power the monitor on/off a bunch of times (friggin annoying). Have you tried powering your monitor on/off to see if that makes it work properly?

Hartacus,
I had this same exact problem, I built a new system with a 7970 and experienced the green screen problem. I tried the ShiMian on my old computer that had a 6870 and it worked perfectly. Here's a link to the vid of the problem I had: http://youtu.be/6VMKJP7HSV0
I tried different DVI-D DL cables but they didn't help, I hooked the monitor up through an active DP-DVI DL adapter and it did seem to help but there was still an unacceptable amount of display corruption. Fortunately the Ebay retailer I bought the monitor from (Red-Cap) gave me a full refund and paid for the return shipping. If you can contact the seller and get a refund or replacement I would do so, if that is not a viable option you might try to get a new input/control board (or whatever it's called) from the seller and see if replacing that fixes the problem. Just so you know in case you do get a refund and don't want to take your chances with a Korean monitor again, Monoprice is going to be introducing a 27" WQHD IPS display before the end of the year, the base model will be around the same price as the current lower end Korean offerings according to the tech I conversed with.
Sorry I can't offer a solution to fix your current monitor.

mad.gifCan someone test this for me?? Press power on your Achievia Shimian Monitor and when you do and the computer is off, should you get a back-light??

Trying to figure out if my back-light is toast or not, so I don't have to pay out the butt for round-trip shipping fee's. The seller says it may be my power prick, but the brick is reading 23.7v strong and I do get a blue light, but then quickly turn red... Confused please reply and help me out... thanks

Tested dvi cables and they seem both to work on single link monitors...I know that doesn't mean anything, but the back-light seems to be the issue.
