Hello all. I have 2 GFX cards on my PC and 1 has an HDMI to a monitor, and not I got a second monitor and I connected it with another HDMI to the other GFX HDMI port. So there are 2 GFX cards, each with 1 HDMI port, and they are both being used for each monitor.

Problem is, it wont detect the second monitor. Anyone know why?

This is what I have:
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz
16364 MB RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series

PS. Dont know if it matters but, Crossfire is ENABLED.

a b C Monitor

When you enable crossfire it disables the ports on the second card.
Attach both monitors to the first card or disable crossfire.

OMG, that so worked...... disables crossfire. I figured that would do it, but I just was to lazy to do it... so instead I decided to take longer and registering here and asking this question. LMAO
