4870 EDID Issues? Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: December 17, 2008 1:42 AM in Displays Share kentiler September 4, 2008 1:11:20 AM Hi, I was contemplating a 4870 or two, but then I came across quite a few people discussing the 4870 EDID problems. From what I understand the monitors don't have a signal under DVI - you have to use analog when it happens. Can anyone explain to me when/why this happens? Thanks! --Kent More about : 4870 edid issues kitsilencer September 4, 2008 7:33:48 AM It's a driver issue. I had the 4870 with 8.7 drivers and the same problem. 8.8 fixes it. decapitor December 17, 2008 1:42:07 AM It's not necessarily a driver issue. I tried to get a 4870 working and got no DVI output even when trying to see the BIOS before any drivers were loaded. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
