Windows 7: Second monitor is only recognized after reseeding.

08 Nov 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Second monitor is only recognized after reseeding.

Ok I am trying to do this I have my ASUS monitor for when I play like hard core PC Games or racing sims on my PC but then I have an HDMI running to my TV both monitors can run 1080P so on and so forth. I have done this before but until recently. When ever I re seed the connection to my tv from my computer the connection works, however if I do anything, anything at all I lose the connection until I reseed my HDMI cable. I run two video cards, the HD 5770 and the HD 5870, I cannot use any of the ports on the 5870 because the primary card (for some reason) is the 5770 (so at least I have a hdmi port). I am trying to find out why I am not keeping the connection with my tv so that I can watch shows and stuff like that.

I would remove the 5770 and put the 5870 in the first PCI Express-16 slot (closest one to the CPU) and get the monitors working off that card alone, and not even use the 5770 at all, that's not nearly as good a card, and the extra PCI Express-16 slots might not even be full speed slots, which is common and so it would actually be a performance detriment.

See where you are at after that as far as the monitors working goes....

I used to use a 5850, but I am at a 7950 now.
