Hi all,

Sorry if this was already asked about any other card, couldn't find any.

I bought a new AMD computer with the Radeon HD 6450.
When I got home, I noticed there is a flickering line on the screen when I use DVI (VGA had no such problem).

When I complain to the store, I was told that the VGA is "the primary output" for the card, and I can only use the DVI for a secondary screen.

Is there such a thing?
Did anyone experienced such a thing?

Thanks!

Thank you for your answer.

I figured he is...

I am using the monitor native resolution.
I installed the drivers supplied, no change.

Try updating the drivers to the Current drivers from AMD. www.amd.com I doubt that it will change anything but you never know.

Have you tried using a different DVI cable? Try hooking the monitor up to another computer using the DVI cable to eliminate the monitor and cable as the cause.

Thanks, JKatwyopc.

I just downloaded the driver, and apparently mine is up to date.

I used this monitor with my old computer with the same DVI cable, and it was working perfectly.
The only other monitor I have has VGA only, but when I tried it, it had no such problem.
