Issue with XFX HD 6870 (HD-687A-ZDFC)
I have the following configuration:
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev 2)
Intel Core i5 2500K
GeIL Black Dragon GB316GB1333C9DC
XFX HD 6870 1024 MB DDR5 DisplayPort (HD-687A-ZDFC) (
Iiyama E2472HDD monitor
Crucial m4 CT128M4SSD2 128GB
Seasonic S12II-Bronze 430W
Scythe Big Shuriken 2
The issue I have is with the videocard/LCD, the monitor is connected via a DVI -> VGA adapter.
After the text during the installation (when switching to the graphical interface) the display goes 'blank' (standby)
I also have a displayport -> VGA adapter, when installing with this adapter the installation works fine, also in MacOS the display works.
However this displayport -> VGA adapter has issues with windows: sometimes gives errors claiming the connection was lost and switching to 800x600 resolution.
And in MacOS (after installation) the DVI -> VGA adapter gives no image.
Is there a way to set the display output locked to a DVI port?
Fixed. Don't use DVI->VGA adapters.
Turns out the monitor has a DVI port, connected a DVI->DVI cable, both Windows 7 and MacOS work fine now.
