I have the Sapphire eyefinity 6 2gb card and when I hook it up to a Vizio 37in 1080p. my computer will not display video or power on keyboard and mouse, unless i have my Samsung monitor attached. the monitor uses the dongle to DVI the TV uses dongle to HDMI. Now the interesting part is that the monitor doesnt even have to be plugged into a power source for the tv to work. computer to tv will never work unless the monitor is plugged in. any suggestions?
