Hi

Dont know if anyone has noticed this in the past but with Displayport monitors and ATI cards there is a general issue finding cables that go from mini Displayport to normal Displayport that DONT have pin 19 or 20 wired which transmits power via the cable.

As you can imagine it transfers the power onto the PC creating issues like BIOS reset and part powered even when off.

Does anyone know if OCUK stocks these proper monitor cables as I cant find the info from the site.

Also has anyone else noticed this issue, from what I can find its very hard to tell if a cable has or hasn't got the pin disconnected.

I bought a pair of these a few weeks back for my Dell's and have had no issues with them at all.

Haven't noticed any of the issues that you have mentioned below and they are running from my 7970.

Doesn't fully answer your question I know, but hope it helps a little
