hi everyone

I just got a Crossover 27q monitor, it works well with my old computer running on a M2N32 Asus with a Athlon x2 6000 and a Nvidia N9600GT graphics card, however when i try to use it with my Sabertooth p67 MB and a ATI 6950 graphics card, have tried swamping cables between machines and am about to swap the old graphics card in to new machine to test if that works any other ideas, thinking its something simple I've missed.
thanks
Craig

Is it running over dvi or vga?

DVI-D duel link cables on both old and new computers / monitors both on windows 7

are you connecting to the port on the graphics card or on the motherboard? You have to use the one on the graphics card.

Hi Kevin

the ST p67 MB does not have display adapter so am using the graphics card port. Both of them have been tried and nether work, cant use the display ports (have 4) as the monitor does not have that input available.

thanks for help

Does the 6950 work when connected to a different monitor?

When the dell monitor is connected the computer will start but if its the crossover on its own the computer won't even post, works fine on old rig though wetter plugged in on own or with Dell. Weird situation to be in just about to swap graphics card to see if its gc or mb causing issue.

Just put the MSI 9600GT in to my new box and both monitors working at their native res looks really sweet, now to find why the ATI card is not working!

Oh and the graphics card is working with out its own installed drivers just using generic win 7 ones after a restart currently.

It makes zero sense that it would be posting differently based on the monitor connected. Are you sure your power supply can handle the 6950?

It's an hx 750 from corsair so should be up to it, tested both power lines with old card with.only one power point on old card. I think that if a monitor is not recognised a comp does not post but not sure on that.

Running on msi 9600GT at moment with both screens working bit its npt really up to it.

checked it out and its fairly normal for anything (asides a server) not booting if there is no monitor attached. Having a monitor cable plugged in but turned off is registered the same as one turned on in respect of POST'ing

was an issue with graphics card not switched to DVI-D mode, once switched all was good
