Hello all, first off let me start with I know alot of people have actually encountered this, some post's say its the GPU, some say its the DVI cables, but im fairly sure its neither.
I say that because before i moved places i was able to run both monitors using my two DVI-D cables without any problems. Now that isnt the issue, im forced to run one in DVI-D (runs 120HZ successfully) and the other monitor in VGA using the VGA to DVI-I adapter. I would be happy with just that setup but my monitors are the 120HZ LCD's ones and i'd really like to take advantage of that again.
Its just driving me nuts knowing before i had no problems, both monitors running in DVI-D ( dual link DVI cables ) @ 120HZ but now it seems like its all ass-backwards.
Has anybody encountered this problem and fixed it?
Things I have tryed;
- Uninstalling/Reinstalling display drivers
- Updated all other drivers (cpu,mobo,ect)
- Switched cables to ensure its not a DVI input problem w/ the GPU.
Also, if i try to run both monitors like how I used to, one monitor wont even fully POST, it shows the acer logo, will not let me enter the display menu and goes straight to "no signal" then turns off.
Yes, as monkey said it can be dual link as well, which is the current case.
The monitors did not come with drivers but i downloaded the official ones from the Acer website.
I never changed or uninstalled any drivers during my move, the computer pretty much stayed the same except now both obviously wont work through DVI-D.
The only thing i can think of thats changed is i had to return my video card and got a new one, same type.
