The cards configured for Crossfire or are they set to run as two single cards?

Also have the driver for the cards installed or just using the default Windows driver?

I've got a similar problem, only one of the DVI outs on my 6870 works, and only one monitor displays. Both monitors work, but again, only one DVI port seems to work.

The cards are configured for Crossfire, and I have gotten the new drivers off of MSI's website.

Jericho are you sure that is the port? I have tried to change cables, changed video card slots, and just about everything else and nothing has really worked for me.

I've only got a single 6870. Both monitors work, and on just the one DVI port. I can't use the HDMI out as I don't have an extension, and I can't use the eyefinity, as I don't have the adapter. The second DVI out on my 6870 just does not want to work.

Have you tried switching the good monitors cable at the monitor and plugging it into the other monitor to see if it works? Is the monitor set for the correct DVI input on it's settings?

Both connected to one card, or one on each? Also just get the drivers directly from AMD. MSI doesn't do anything to them other than to change the installer to include their name in it, the driver is identical to the one from AMD, and if MSI is anything like Asus newer as well.


Jericho starting your own thread would be much better than helping you here. All it does is add to confusion between the original thread starter and anyone else looking for help.
