2nd / 'Other' GPU Bios won't show display (Sapphire 7950)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sapphire 7950 Dual-X 3L

I RMA'd my first one due to rattling heatsink, now with this card (get a bit of rattle every once in a while, not as bad as last one...), so I know how it's supposed to work.

Basically, my 'other' bios won't work, won't display anything. I uninstall all drivers, reinstall with the other bios loaded, and it works, but then the other won't. It apperas that the system thinks there is nothing plugged into the GPU, yet it senses there are extra monitors (much more than just 1 extra, actually...), but it won't turn them on.

If I tell BIOS to initialize to the gpu instead of igpu, my main monitor will show the POST and w7 boot GUI... but that's it.

When I tell device manager to disable my amd gpu driver when on the no-display bios, it appears to lock up/perpetual loading.

This image shows my secondary monitor plugged into igpu, and then I have a single hdmi to gpu from main monitor. Dont know why there are 3 monitors showing up, sometimes 4 or 5 show up.

Thanks.
