The issue I'm having is that Windows changes my color scheme and gives me the following error:
"The color scheme has been changed to Windows 7 Basic.
The current color scheme has exceeded it's allowed memory so the color scheme has been automatically changed to improve performance. Click to see more information"
I've already configured Windows 7 to "Adjust for best appearance" but no joy
The latest driver for the 7850 is 12.4 which I installed when I installed the card.
I've tried reverting to 12.3 but still nothing.
I installed a Windows Gadget to monitor the temperature and sometimes it goes up to 67°C when doing something easy like watching a movie or something (not benchmarking, not even gaming). I don't know how reliable that gadget is but I thought I'd give it to anyway.
Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening?
My Sapphire 7850 has the following connectors:
- 1 HDMI
- 1 DVI
- 2 mini-DP
Unfortunately, I don't have a monitor with display or mini-display. I know that it is possible to go from DVI to mini-display but those converters are very expensive. Do you know any other solution if I wanted to connect all 3 monitors to the 7850 card?
From a quick google it seems windows disables areo if your running software that aero isn't compatible with, also alot of people are having the same issue if they are remotely accessing other computers.
Have you tried running all 3 monitors from the HD7850? Not sure how the driver would work with a HD4890 and 7850...
at display resolutions at or below 1920x1200 you only need an active mini display port to single link DVI adapter. my friend just did this with his 5750. they are 20-30 bucks. here's one but there are others on Amazon and Ames eyefinity page.
The 4890 will have driver issues with the newest ones I think. its also a heat/power hog so the adapter will probably pay for itself. and you can sell or reuse the 4890. And you'll be able to use eyefinity if you want
EDIT: Crossfire requires ALL monitors be connected to the primary card. Buying a 2nd 7850 and running them in crossfire will still require you use a display port adapter.
