can he just add AMD 7750 card to hook the monitors to in there without any issues?
Does it have to be Sapphire or any brand is fine?
What about the drivers? NOTE: 5750 vs 7750.
2) The system gives BSOD quite a lot on start up only and once it starts up there are no problems. Any guesses why? My money is on PSU or the mobo cap.

I can understand the relationship between ram and motherboard but can't phantom PSUs and CPUs aside from power requirements.
BSOD Memory Management
OS - Windows 7
· Original OS
· Age of system Less than 2 years

· AMD Phenom II X4 940
· XFX HD 6970

· Power Supply - ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ1100 1100W ATX12V
Have come home from work everyday for the last week to a BSOD stating
memory management error.
I have all brand new:
- ASUS M4A79 Deluxe mobo
- Phenom II 940
- 8GB Corsair DDR2800
- Corsair 850W powers upply
- Diamond 4870X2 Video card
- 2 WD Velociraptors in RAID 0
- LG SATA DVD RW
80% of the times I reboot and/or shut off & power back on it starts to post, I hear the beep, but then just hangs on black screen & does not post any further. It is right before I see Motherboard Splash screen.
It happens at random, but over all most of the times. The few % of times it does work it does boot into Windows fine.
- Everything is out of the case on Foam
- I tried re-setting CMOS
- I updated to latest BIOS
- I tried different power supply (1200W)
- I tried with only 4GB Memory
- I tired Memory in different slots
- the CPU is not Overclocked
- I tried resetting CPU
- I tried re-applying Thermal paste
- I tried Video card in different PCIE slot
- I tried with No DVD RW & NO HDs plugged in
Is their something else I can try to solve this problem, is the motherboard bad
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I was having a problem with this type of hang-up or freeze with a m4n72-e and the problem was the video card. The video card is one of the first things that kick on and if there are problems with it, the comp can freeze anywhere in the startup or booting of bios or windows . Run 3dmark06 and furmark. If the comp locks during these tests, swap out and try another video card. run 3dmark06 a couple of times even it it works sometimes a lock up of this program points to the video card or just swap it out and see what happens.
Yes ! that was it ! If I changed the video card all is ok now.
Thank you bpnbm.
Just out of curiosity, what video card did you have that was causing the issues ?
Mine was the Diamond 4870X2.
Off to return it now....
Thank you !

H_T, we looked into the active adapter thing and it just didn't make sense due to the cost involved at the time. now he has two 5750 and wants to add more monitors, ie another card potentially. i believe AMD only supports two monitors per card with DVI/HDMI and for more you have to use Displayport which isn't an option given his choice of monitor.

I am sure you have already checked this, but if an SSD is not in AHCI mode on the SATA controller ( set in mobo BIOS of course ) , and is instead set to IDE/Compatibility mode, you will get BSOD's for sure... probably this is not the case, since you say once it finally gets into Windows it is stable, but has a lot of trouble booting properly into windows.
How to Configure Multiple Monitors
Use the Displays Manager of the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center to enable multiple displays. The Displays Manager is available in both Standard and Advanced views of the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center. A secondary display device can be a flat panel LCD display, CRT monitor, projector, HDTV, TV, etc.
1.Click on the Display Manager in Advance View.
2.Click on the number "2" display icon in the right-hand box.
3.Click "Yes" to the Enable this display dialog.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 above for each additional connected device. The number on the display icon will increase as more displays are added.
•Multiple Monitors with ATI CrossFireX™ Configuration
?When ATI CrossFireX™ is active other display devices other than the primary and secondary monitor connected to the Digital Video Interface (DVI) or Video Graphics Array (VGA) are rendered inactive.
?It is possible to drive multiple monitors using the ATI CrossFireX™ configuration when ATI CrossFireX™ is not enabled through the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center software. Depending on the ATI CrossFireX™ configuration and ATI Radeon™ graphics cards used, it can support up to 8 independent displays and up to 4 independent displays for Hybrid ATI CrossfireX™ systems.
•Multiple Monitors Configuration Examples:
?Up to 4 monitors can be connected with Hybrid CrossFireX™ configuration (ATI Radeon™ graphics card and a motherboard with an AMD 780G Chipset with integrated graphics processor).
?4 monitors can be connected with 2 ATI Radeon™ graphics cards, each card having 2 output ports or 1 ATI Radeon™ graphics card with 4 output ports.
?8 monitors can be connected with 4 ATI Radeon™ graphics cards, each card having 2 output ports or 2 ATI Radeon™ graphics cards with 4 output ports.
