Cintiq and Radeon Problems

I was wondering if anyone has similar techinical issues  regarding Cintiq monitors and AMD video cards

I recently got  an AMD card ( HD 6970 ) with new catalyst drivers installed ( 11.5 )
Everything works fine even in 3 - monitor eyefinity mode .
But once I plug in my cintiq , my screen goes black .

When I run my pc with just the cintiq connected . It would show up the boot screen , but after loading the windows logo everything goes all black again .

I encountered the same problem when using other cards like HD 5870 and HD 5450 . in catalyst 11.2 -11.5

I tested these using 3 computers running win 7 64 bit

i7 2600k , 8gb DDR3 HD 6790 1tb HDD
i7 860 , 8gb DDR3 HD 5870 1 tb HDD
Pentium D 2gb DDR2 HD 5450 500gb HDD

The only solution I found was using old catalyst drivers (11.1 )
I was able to run all 4 monitors including the cintiq in  extended mode .

This frustrates me since I bought a premium card and not be able to use a Cintiq with newer Catalyst drivers .

I tried emailing tech support from AMD and Wacom but no response yet .
I was hoping to find better solutions from users with a similar set up as mine .

Yeah, I have an AMD too, but not the Cintiq.... it's amazing how little googling your problem helps nowadays. :<

Well I tried searching on google first before I posting here as a last place to ask .

I wouldn't doubt it's a driver bug.  A few years ago, Java didn't work at all with ATI cards, and it took about a year for that to be resolved.

Thanks I've been through that forum before . Seems both companies aren't doing anything to solve the issue .
So far I havent encountered issues or optimazation problems in some of the lates games I have  using catalyst 11.1

Been hearing bad things about ATI catalyst 11.x..
With anything new it could be conflicts, but that's all I know on that .
