Eyefinity HELP!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im trying to setup my first eyefinity rig for a friend and Im not sure what or where Im going wrong? I have three AOC e2243fwk monitors, Each has a DVI and a VGA plug! My card is a XFX 6870 2gb with 2x mini displayPort, 1x dual-link DVI-I, 1x single-link DVI, 1x HDMI...

I bought a Active MiniDP to single-link DVI adapter which is what I thought I needed but now Im thinking I need a different type of adaptor because I cant seem to get the therd monitor to come on!?

When I open up CCC it shows all three monitors but when I duplicate them only two will show the desk top?

So is anyone out there see what Im doing wrong here? Or do I need a diffrent type of adaptor? Am I plugging the monitors in wrong?
If you need more info please ask me and Ill try and explan better to you!

Thanks for any help!!!

Get this active adapter validated for Eyefinity should fix the issue.
