Stuck with just 1 monitor.


Guest InfamousSynergy

Hey y'all :)


I am running a AMD fx-6100 and a R9 270x (2gb msi version)


I was browsing through the downloads section and found a driver for my card. Since I had the issue before, I thought this might fix it. All it did was change the card in the SMBios from Radeon 7xxx to R9 270x.  I can run ONE monitor on any port (Display port, HDMI, DVI-I or DVI-D). When I plug  a second monitor in, one goes blank (The first monitor) and the other shows a bunch of different colored lines down it. Both monitors will stay on until you turn the machine off. When you plug the third monitor in, The first one comes back on and displays what it was displaying before but the system is frozen, the third one goes white and the other shows the colored lines. Essentially, I am stuck with one of 3 monitors. 


Note: I have tried changing the SMBios from mac pro to iMac and I do have the R9 270x Driver installed still


I would like to get this running as this issue is the only thing stopping me from moving across full time!

You should describe the rest of your build as it probably has something to do with your problem.   I run two monitors off of the Radeon in my gigabyte setup with no problem.  You also need to be specific as to how you're plugging your monitors in,  which port,  which is your boot up port, etc.

Ok... I use Display port (With a active vga adapter) and both DVI ports.





CPU: AMD FX-6100

RAM: Corsair Vengence 1600mhz (1x8gb)   &  G.Skill Ripjaw X 1333MHz (1x8gb)

Boot Drive (OS X): OCZ Vertex 2 (100GB trim enabled)
GPU: MSI Radeon R9 270X 2gb (Either non OC or factory OC)



If you need any other specs, lemme know :)

Installed a kext I found on the interwebz and I can now run 2 monitors, One on DVI and one on DP, all configs tried with numerous adapters for VGA/DVI/DP/HDMI, both passive and active, 2 is all I could get going. Better than one but not as good as 3!

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
