Hi Folks,

I just bought a MSI Motherboard with 5 PCIe slots, but it looks like you can only fit 4 cards on the board, so I have decided to go with 4, 6950 which I have all installed correctly on the board.

However, windows and my GUI miner is only picking up the 1 card that my monitor is plugged into. Also I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit,

Please help.

Thanks!

You need a dummy plug for each video card or the drivers won't recognize a card is there.  There are some youtube videos on how to make dummy plugs and some site that sell them basically you need some resistors and a digital to vga adapter  or you can use linux and you wont need the dummy plugs...

If you only have 1 monitor, you probably need to buy some dummy plugs, or a workaround MAY be, start mining on your first card, plug the monitor into the second, start mining on that, rinse and repeat Smiley

Thank you for your help! If I use a dummy plug would I need to use the cross fire link?

Oh, that might be why, disable crossfire and see if you can mine with them all.

No if you have a dummy plug you dont need crossfire link.  Disable crossfire, install your plugs and enjoy mining
