XFX 7870 HDMI Causing Bios Resolution Issues

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well recently I bought an HDMI cable for my graphics card to play games on my 1080p tv. Before that, I have two DVI screens plugged in.

Recently I found that when I boot into my BIOS with the HDMI plugged in, the resolution goes wierd. This never happened when I had only the two DVI cables plugged in.

Here are some images.

Both DVI's + HDMI plugged into the card:



Only the two DVI's plugged in(I unplugged the HDMI cable):




Can anyone tell me a way to make the resolution look like the second picture WITH the HDMI plugged in? I don't want to have to unplug the HDMI whenever I want to use the bios..

Thanks!

One of the dvi connections are linked with the hdmi.

Make sure you are trying to use the hdmi + the dvi that is linked with it.

My monitors don't support HDMI though, only DVI.
