Hello there,

I just received my second 6850 Card that I bought in order to increase performance as well as have 1 extra HDMI and 1 DVI port. I then installed them the way I saw on videos and read about prior to it, and when I turned on my computer, the crossfire enable window popped up, which makes me think it works. Then i connect my second monitor to the DVI or HDMI but it doesn't respond nor detect the monitor. I haven't done anything yet since because I would like to know what I'm doing.

Does anyone please have a solution or even reason to it?

1. Did you connect the crossfire bridge?
2. How many monitors are you running? Which ports are they on?
3. Did you go to your catalyst control center and check the monitors?

When running the crossfire only one card will be active to run monitors from, the second card display ports are disabled and the card is used for that "extra horsepower" for your primary card.

Yes I did connect the bridge.
Right now 1.
The monitor that is connected is with a DVI port, and so is the second one i want to connect.
I did go to the catalyst, but it doesn't detect anything from the second card.

Are you sure? It would seem useless then. I don't even feel any difference yet.
