Ok check this out...
After HOURS of playing around trying to get this stupid thing to work (including emailing Gigabyte back and forth checking to see if my gigabyte mobo would even support dual cards running in parallel) I thought 4 the fun of it i'll try a different card other than the 4850.
Bought a cheap $30 5000 series card and installed it.......nada.
After a little crying i started at it again trying to figure this out.
After all of the driver enable, delete, reinstall, update driver blah blah blah win7 finally quit even recognizing the 7850 and in the device manager started calling it a standard VGA!
After attempting to turn the computer into an Air-to-ground Maverick this is what I did:
Downloaded a program from amd's site that removes all amd stuff off the comuper including drivers. AMD Uninstall.
Downloaded and installed the latest (not the beta) CCC suite that included the latest driver for the HD7850.
After 197MB download it started to install. I noticed it started installing microsoft c++ redistributable, framework 4.x and some other things before it started to install the CCC stuff. When it was finished and rebooted......
Wait for it.....
all 4 monitors including 3 i set up for eyefinity. I put the 2 mfd's on the 4th monitor and works great.
Windows now, even without me doing anything, recognized all 4 monitors in the screen resolution setup. Didn't have to do anything there.
Now that its working i'm going to pull the 5000 and put the 4850 back in and see what happens.....stay tuned.
