I'm new to the forum, and recently got a 3rd monitor for my birthday.
My computer has a Radeon HD 5770. I know that this isn't the best card to be running eyefinity on, but I'm not looking to do any real hardcore gaming.
my issue started out with me being ignorant to the fact that I needed to have one monitor hooked up to the displayport for Eyefinity. So I went out and bought a Displayport to DVI adapter; turns out that one was passive, so I took it back.
I now have an Accell B087B-005B displayport to DVI-D single link active adapter.
when I hook up my 3rd screen. (two already in the DVI ports) my computer gives me this error.
After a little research I found that I would need to update the firmware for the Displayport adapter. I went to the Accell site, found the update for my model and am now currently stuck looking at a screen like this.
I am ultimately frustrated at this point, I don't have any experience with eyefinity, but I am assuming it shouldn't take 5 days to get working.
any help would be much appreciated, and I would be happy to supply any info needed to resolve this issue. I just want to play with my bday present.
