    Hello,

    I have recently bought a new computer with a monitor.
    Computer specification:
    Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8150 Eight-Core Processor 3.60 GHz
    RAM: 16.0 GB
    OS: 64-bit Win7
    Graphic card: AMD Radeon 7800 Series
    Monitor:
    http://www.viewsonic.com/products/v3d245.htm
    So if you saw the link above, my monitor came in with 3D Glasses. (which I had no idea about when buying) Although now that I have them I might as well use them. But how?
    I tried searching google but I did not manage to find anything useful for me.
    These Nvidia glasses seem to do nothing when viewing for example 3D YouTube videos.
    I do turn them on and I do see a green light on the left side but they don't do anything. I have never used 3D system before.
    If anyone knows how to set this all up, please tell me.
    Thank you all in advance :)

    Hi

    As you do not have an Nvidia vga card that supports this tech, it will not be possible

    the only way to view 3D content with AMD is you have to have a tv or monitor that supports HDMI 1.4 and passive 3D the glasses that don't require batteries.
