Hi Guys, I need a little technical wizardry with my new FirePro set up. I just bought the V4900 and I'm having trouble getting both of my monitors working on it. One of them works fine but my computer isn't detecting the second one. 

The first monitor is connected via DVI-D cable directly to the card's DVI output - which works fine.

The second is thru the DisplayPort -> DVI adapter which was included with the card. 

I know both monitors are functioning correctly because I can swap them out and they both work. 

I have two ViewSonic VX2035wm monitors

FirePro V4900

Windows 7 Home 64 Bit

AMD 8-Core FX-8350 Vishera Processor

This is the driver i've installed:


Thank you guys in advance for your help!

I suggest you contact AMD as this is a gaming forum, we deal with desktop cards (Radeons) and have experience with those.

There is a contact AMD link somewhere in the bottom of the page, and also more links in the FAQ section.

The V4900 has two display ports on it. What happens if you move the second display to the other display port? Are you even able to get the second display detected in Windows “screen resolutions”? Ensure that your display is set to DVI/digital mode and not on Analog/VGA/d-sub.
