Nvidia 8800GT dual monitor and R290 total 5 monitor setup

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 monitor setup which works perfectly in windows and my old hackintosh project. I've upgraded to new CPU and I cannot get my 8800GT Nvidia gpu working. 

 

My setup:

 

16gb ram

6800k cpu

r290 GPU (3 monitor output is working perfectly, RIFT as well)

8800GT Nvidia 

Several SSD's

 

I inject r290 and it's working fine. I did the same with my 8800 gt and I can login mac os and see in system profile both cards.But I can only boot witouth any DVI cable (on my 8800gt, 290 is fine).

 

I use clover. Do I really need the nvidia web drivers? Because I read somewhere that my card is too old for nvidia drivers.

 

What do you recommend?

 

I fil in fake id, ports 2 (I have 3, but one not a monitor output but tv (no hdmi))

Tried it but stuck at black screen :(

 

The card should work native, when booting I can see him correctly in system profiler (without web drivers). When connecting DVI the system hungs :(

 

It may be a CPU issue, I can run dual RX 480 cards on my Haswell Pentium but with Skylake and above it won't work only black screen.

Oh that sucks. No workaround?

Long ago I had issues with the 8800 GT myself and ended up flashing it with a Quattro FX bios, and never looked back! I flashed it to a Quattro FX card almost out of the box until it died last year
