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 .
