richparnell Posted September 30, 2015 Report Share Posted September 30, 2015 Hi guys I realise this isn't really a Watchout problem but I wondered if any of you have encountered this before? I have a new Watchout system with a couple of PCs with AMD FirePro W7100s, having read the info on this forum and elsewhere, I thought it was best to purchase the StarTech DP2DVIS adapters (http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-DP2DVIS-DisplayPort-Active-Adapter/dp/B004SUO1GMas) listed in the AMD Recommended Adapters list (http://support.amd.com/en-us/recommended/eyefinity-adapters). Being based in Dubai, all of the above was very difficult to source but now I have everything, only to find that when I connect the output from the W7100 into a DVI monitor via the StarTech adapter, I get no signal and the monitor goes to sleep. The strange thing is that if I reboot the PC, the monitor comes back on and displays the BIOS and Windows loading screen, presumably because its low-res and its before any graphics driver has kicked in and told it to do something else. This has lead me to believe that it could be a setting somewhere that I am missing...unless anyone here can tell me different?! Also, I have tried all of the above using an unbranded cheap and nasty DP to DVI adapter purchased from a local supplier and much to my surprise, that one worked fine! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
