    According to AMD ATI Jose, it can run FOUR 30 inch monitors simultaneously,

    In the list under the heading Product Resources, click on - Datasheet

    "The ATI FirePro 2460 Multi-View is the first low-profile, Quad Mini DisplayPort capable solution available - allowing users to expand their field of view across FOUR large (30") High resolution displays"

    They also indicate either the Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Linux operating system, must be used in order to support more than TWO displays.

    (Fine writing at bottom of 1st link above )

    I believe four 30 inch displays (Monitors) AND good resolution.

    Great resolution?
    Ummmm, dunno.

    512 MegaBytes of GGDR3 graphics ram memory?
    Good point.

    The graphics processing unit's Core, (GPU), is the AMD (ATI) RV810.
    Weak point.
    [ Cedar (RV810 ]

    [ GPU, ]

    Model = FirePro 2460 Multi-View

    It is based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology.
    Good point/weak point.

    To explain;
    The PCI-Express technology came out in 2004. (First edition wasn't named PCI Express )

    PCI-Express 1.0 technology.
    Then PCI-Express 1.1 technology.
    Now PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

    PCI-Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

    Simplified meaning, is:
    That a graphics card based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology:

    Will work in a motherboard that has a PCI-Express x16 slot,
    based on the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

    Question is; Will you get the full capability of the PCI-Express graphics card?
    Answer: NO

    Question: Will you notice?
    Usually No.

    However that will depend on what program/s you are running, and what your definition of high resolution is.

    Example: Gaming? Intense newer game? I don't think you will see the characters sweat. (Using four 30 inch monitors)

    THAT, is my definition of HIGH resolution, lol!

    To summarize:

    Four monitors?
    Yes. Up to 30 inch each.

    BUT, only when using Win7, Win Vista, and Linux.

    One thing I wish to add.
    The cooling system consists of a Heatsink.
    Passive cooling.

    (The finned Black, meat tenderizer looking object, on the graphics card )

    I suggest if you wish to extend the life of the graphics card, and keep good performance at a high level, that you install some sort of fan on top of this Heatsink.

    A quiet type of small fan designed for this type of application.
    One example,

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!

1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"

The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

I have issues with the second ATI FirePro V7800 card. I am running Window 7 pro - 64 bit. The motherboard is ASUS Sabertooth X58. Intel Corei7. Corsair 24 GB. Both two cards were working fine...

In order to further troubleshoot this issue, I would recommend the following:

Uninstall the ATI drivers from your computer.
Shut down the computer.
Remove the ATI card from your computer, and connect your monitor to the onboard video adapter.
Turn on the computer.
Ensure the ATI software was infact removed.
Shut down the computer
Reinstall the ATI video Card
Turn On the computer
Reinstall the ATI drivers ensuring to select the proper "CrossFire" configuration

I have 2 acer data managerment problem found in edata security software installation it says please close all running programs and reinstall edats security. the second one is catalyst control center is not...

> please close all running programs and reinstall edats security.

Close programs (word-processor, web-browser).
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Add/Remove Programs
Click on EDATS SECURITY (or something approximately that)
Click Remove
Click OK
Reinstall the software

> catalyst control center is not supported by the friver [?]
> version of your enabled graphics adapter.

ATI ( distributes the "Catalyst" software with their adapter video-cards. So, there is a problem with the "Control Center" component of their software.

> please update your ati graphics,
> or enable your ati adapter using displays manager

First, do you have an add-in video-card in your computer?
If not, then you should not be trying to use the ATI software,
and you should remove it:
* click Start
* click Control Panel
* click Add/Remove Programs
* select the ATI Catalyst software
* click Remove
* restart your computer

Second, if you have added an ATI card, you may need to restart your computer, press DELETE to enter BIOS SETUP, and "disable" the "onboard" video-adapter, or change the video-priority so that the ATI video-card becomes the "primary" video-adapter, and the onboard video-adapter becomes the "secondary" video-adapter.
Then, click Save Changes, and before selecting Exit From Setup,
move the video data-cable from the onboard VGA port to the VGA port on the ATI video-adapter. Then, "blindly", click Exit, and let your computer restart. Then, during the reboot, the ATI software will recognize the new "primary" video-card, and will the software will control the ATI video-hardware.

Sometimes, it helps to have a second computer monitor, and connect one adapter to the "onboard" VGA-port, and the other to the ATI VGA-port, so that you can see video output wherever it is produced.
