Possible fix for eyefinity flickering.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have finally found a solution for myself at least for eyefinity and flickering I own a 5870 and a antec twelve hundred case.

1.Flashed my video card bios with a bios sent to me by sapphire. (still quite a bit of flickering after it with 9.12 hotfix) but it helped.
2.Reinstalled windows 7 and installed 10.1 and the xcode hotfix. (I had NO flickering whatsoever after this)

Now what I did notice is that flickering came back after I put my case back together. So I tested this for 2 hours of leaving the sides on and off and to my surprise it does not flicker at all when the sides are off but flickers the same when I put it on. Is this some kind of short from the DP or something? I am moving my pc to a tech station today but thought this might be a nice thing to try out if you are having the flickering issue.

Oh also I am using the monoprice dp to vga passive adapter.

It's honestly so simple it doesn't seem true.

I didn't believe it could be that simple, but 5-10 seconds later, my monitors stopped flickering. Credit goes out the original author, of course.

Was 900/1300 really making it work THAT hard with nothing happening? Hmmm...

Hi. thought I stop by here and tell how i sorted this.
Ive had same probs as others with the active adapters, but bought active usb hub today which uses power from electric plug and adapter seems to work fine. So it seems its too little power the problem. I heard one guy make his own usb backpanel which uses power straight from psu.
