I am having some troubles with my 2 Radeon HD 7950's

I bought 2 Screens because I have 2 Card but it does not work, So can any one please reply with a direct link to drivers to XFX Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 and NOT the Auto Detect.
Thanks

Plug the non working screen into the card that has the working screen.

If you have 2 dvi cables and your cards are like my brothers, you have to use the hdmi to dvi adapter that came with the card.

When you run crossfire, all the monitors plug into the primary card, top one I believe, and the second card is used only for extra horsepower.

Try DVI AND HDMI on the main card not on both.

Im fairly sure with crossfire the second card does not need screens to work in crossfire. Maybe if you have more than 3+ screens you need to use the second cards display ports

Corret +1 I'm sorry but Op you must look carefully at what we are telling you

Don't use Both cards Only the main card needs to have the DVI +HDMI on the SAME CARD not the CROSSFIRED ONE LEAVE IT ALONE !

Like Instructed Please use the TOP CARD only
