ALL of my displays powered by DVI come out black and white. I was messing around with my settings a while ago and wondering what's wrong.

A guy I was talking said my Mobo bios is the problem and I would have to cmos it. Any help on how to do this? I build my computer myself so I can pretty much answer any question you have about the components.

Just looking for some help on how to cmos it, or something like that.

What do you mean by 'DVI come out black and white'? Most 'settings' are in your OS, so I'd try to use a Restore Point prior to your 'tweaks.'

This can be done either through Windows or you can boot off your Windows (e.g. Vista/7) DVD, press (F8) and from the System Recovery Options choose 'System Restore' then select an earlier Restore Point.

If you need to Clear the CMOS then unplug the PSU for 5 minutes, locate your CMOS 'Jumper' or 'Button' and move the jumper or hold the button for 5+ seconds, let go or move the jumper back into its default position, and boot into your BIOS and 'Load Optimized/Optimal Defaults' then Exit & Save = Yes.

When I run Crossfire, my second/third displays powered off of DVI come out as black and white, meaning the display is black and white while I still have actual video of my desktop and games and such. But when I have a single card in my system, all of the displays come out as should.

And thanks, I'll check all of this out.
