Just got 2nd GFX card and 2nd monitor need some major help please!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok i just installed my 2nd 5770 for crossfire and what not but how can i tell im running 2 cards? I know thats a stupid question but i have to know. Anyways i have the 2nd monitor hooked up DVI and i cannot get it to detect the monitor when i use catalyst. What do i do? I put in the cd for the mon. and it just goes to a internet screen saying installation in progress but nothing ever happens.

Heres my specs if needed:

Amd x4 3.1ghz
10gb DDR3 ram
2 HD 5770 in crossfire (Hopefully)
1TB internal HDD

Please any help will be greatly appreciated as i have been waiting to set up a mega desk for sooo long!

Connect both 5770 with a crossfire bridge, then go into the catalyst control center and select the crossfire tab and check the box.

Both monitors should be hooked up to the same video card, and you don't need to install any drivers.

Sorry bub, wrong section. A mod should come to move soon.

You should be able to see if its running in crossfire using CCC.

Well, you posted this in the wrong section. If you would have looked, you would have found there to be an ATI section. But to answer your question, you go to the catalyst control panel and see if theres a crossfire option. If there is, then you have 2 cards running. You can also check in device manager.

I had to uninstall and re-install my drivers when I added a second card is CFX. Then when you go into CCC you can see both cards. I am on a diff computer but I think it is overdrive, on the top it will show what card you have, move the mouse over it and see the second card.

After you re-install the driver you will also have a new option at the bottom, crossfire.
