    Video card can't handle dual monitors at 2560x1440?

    Solved this issue -- the problem was that I bought the display refurbished from Dell, and they packaged it with a non dual-link DVI cable, so it was capped out at 1920x1080 resolution. Now I have to go out and buy a dual-link DVI cable and I should be all set.

    Video card can't handle dual monitors at 2560x1440?

    I'm not running any graphics kexts, and I'm only using the correct DSDT for my motherboard/bios. Would changing any settings in my Chameleon boot file help out? It's current set to: AtiConfig: Vervet AtiPorts: 4 Thanks again.

    Video card can't handle dual monitors at 2560x1440?

    Hi guys, I'm trying to run dual Dell 27" U2713HM displays at 2560x1440 resolution and have the following setup: - Intel i5 2500k at 4.2ghz - Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 - SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100283VX-2L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 Both monitors are hooked up via DVI. The first...

    Disconnecting from Internet, but not WiFi

    I appreciate the suggestion, but I would like to see if I can get this fixed without having to buy additional hardware. It's strange because it worked fine (or at least significantly better) in the 10.9 public release, and I only noticed this problem again when I upgraded to 10.9.1, which...

    Disconnecting from Internet, but not WiFi

    I have the TL-WDN4800, and I've also been experiencing this problem ever since the 10.9.1 update. I had an issue in some of the 10.9 developer preview builds, but the public release version of 10.9 was much better. Ever since the 10.9.1 update, however, it disconnects really often (particularly...

    Update Your OS X Mountain Lion App to 10.8.3

    Article: Update Your OS X Mountain Lion App to 10.8.3 I have this same exact problem, except I updated to 10.8.3 the day it came out and only noticed this problem yesterday. Has anyone determined what the cause is, and more importantly, is there a fix? Thanks!

    Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 poor Cinebench results

    So apparently the problem was the 10.7.4 update itself, as I reinstalled a fresh copy of 10.7 and my Cinebench scores went to 50fps and my performance was way up. Everything seems good up until 10.7.3, but I don't want to update to 10.7.4 again for the time being. Is this a known issue? Is there...

    Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 poor Cinebench results

    I recently built a system with an Intel i5 2500K processor overclocked to 4ghz and a Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 card. As far as I could tell, it worked out of the box and everything was fine (QE was enabled and the app icons "danced" in Launchpad). I don't really play games on my system...

    ALC889 AppleHDA.kext (10.7.x Lion)

    I've been using a modified AppleHDA on my Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 (ALC889) since I got it a few weeks ago and it's been working like a charm. Then all of a few days ago I started getting this cracking sound when there hasn't been any audio for a few minutes. I searched the forums and this seems to...

    Login items slow to launch after Lion boots

    Ah, I do have a Time Machine setup that's tied to an external WD hard drive. Is that what's possibly causing the problem? I don't even have Spotlight indexing much of my system (only my system partition) so I find it odd that it would take that long to index (or would have to even re-index that...

    Login items slow to launch after Lion boots

    Sorry, but what is a TM? I do think that it might be the system indexing because spotlight has that dot inside of the magnifying glass to indicate that it's not available. Is there any idea how to make this happen less frequently? I don't believe I'm making any significant changes to my system...

    Login items slow to launch after Lion boots

    I've had this problem on two different computers now, and I was wondering if anyone had a solution/fix. Basically, sometimes my login items (e.g. Dropbox, Cloud.app, Alfred, mouse driver, etc.) won't launch that quickly even after I login to Lion and I'm at my desktop. It's strange because I...

    Disk Utility Can't See Any Hard Drive

    Edit: Nevermind, it was just an issue of not setting my SATA to AHCI... :)

    Core i3 setup

    I'm thinking about getting this video card: Gigabyte GV-R577UD-1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB Video Card.

    Core i3 setup

    One other thing: is there any particular 9800GT or ATI 5770 card I should get or are they pretty much all supported out of the box? Thanks!
