Screen flicker problems.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Not 100% sure flicker is the correct term but, all my monitors flick on and off constantly whenever I have three monitors connected.

Tried one monitor, tried two but whenever 3rd one is plugged in it all goes nuts lol. Tried all the ports and unistalling reinstalling drivers, nothing. Cant really move the card to another slot since its underwater, although im getting my 2nd 7970 next week "hopefully" so I can try different slots. Any other ideas?

You need to be using an Active MiniDisplayport/Displayport to DVI/HDMI/etc. converter (preferably AMD certified) so that the third one works right, otherwise only DVI and HDMI will work. Of course, you could just use a Displayport monitor on one of the displayports--then you wouldn't need an adapter and it would "just work" all the same.

I am, its been working fine for past 2-3 months. Problem started only last night. Although its definently something with the mini display ports.

Edit: Whenever I plug in the mini DP, I hear the ding sound of something connecting/disconnecting over and over again.
