    cant detect 2 displays at once with amd radeon 6850


    Hello all,

    So ive recently done a fresh install of windows 10 on my PC but it can not detect both monitors at the same time. I can swap from one or the other.

    Windows 10 just isnt detecting the 2nd monitor while the first is already detected and being used. however i can select 2nd display and it will switch to it. I normally have both monitors with windows 7 which i do not use now because i have windows 10.

    my PC spec is intel i5 3570k, 8gb ram, radeon 6850 if more info is needed i can provide it.

    Thank you.

    Yes.
    Was still messing around with this and just right click the catalyst icon on the right hand of task bar, and saw 6 amd radeon 6800 series with arrows to the right. so the second one had extend desktop in bold click it and it worked.

    Windows 10 still doesnt detect it though but problem solved.

    Thank you :)

    Excellent, good work :)

    Must be an AMD thing, nvidia has no problems with that.

    That card is old, time to upgrade.

    yeh, will do when oculus rift and valve vive come out. not sure which one ill buy though but will need a very good card to run games at max settings at least. 500 - 600 (1000 dollars us) should be enough i think.

    $1000 US is more then enough, you can go with an nvidia GTX 980 Ti for less then that, and an AMD card would be even cheaper.
