So heres the story, I've been running 2 AMD HD6850 in crossfire for a over a year with 2 monitors, each monitor is connected to one card for convenience, today installed w7 on my SSD and for some reason one of the monitors stops working when I turn crossfire on,
Monitor 1 on GPU 1 + Monitor 2 on GPU 2, for one year without probs, I format and install w7 on my SSD and now
Monitor 1 on GPU 1 + Monitor 2 on GPU 2, Monitor 1 works, Monitor 2 gets no signal
Monitor 1 on GPU 2 + Monitor 2 on GPU 1, Monitor 1 gets no signal, Monitor 2 works
Monitor 1 on GPU 1 + Monitor 2 on GPU 1, Both monitors work (Currently doing this)
Monitor 1 on GPU 2 + Monitor 2 on GPU 2, Both monitors get no signal
Switched GPU's: same happens with the other card
Changed crossfire bridge: same happens
Currently I plugged both monitors in my first card and its running fine atm, but I'm plannign to get a 3rd monitor soon and wish to have this fixed by then.
hmmm everything I get on google says when you crossfire cards only the top cards outputs work the second cards are disabled....but you said you got each monitor to work on each card before you got the ssd....are you sure crossfire was enabled then?
I'm 100% sure I had one monitor to each GPU and crossfire was on,
I knew it shouldn't work like that since day one as I did my research before i bought the GPU's, but it worked for some reason and I never looked at it again until today, just think it's really weird that it worked up until now and suddenly it just doesn't
Guess I'll just use it as it's supposed to
