Nvidia Surround Issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok When click Span Displays with Surround my monitors change but then one turns off. So I only get 2 monitors of the surround. I've changed the cables and I'm still losing a monitor. Is it because I'm using 3 vga cables with vga to dvi adapters? I'm having DVI cables coming.

There are a few other things you can try. I really don't believe VGA cables would stop you from running three monitors.

Try putting the cards in different PCI-e ports.
Swap the monitor that isn't showing up into the other card slot that has a working monitor and see if it turns on and the other turns off.
Do all 3 monitors work without them being in SLi? Just spanning them instead?
When you put it into SLi does the third monitor disappear from the Nvidia Control Panel?

Let us know the results of those test/questions and it may give us some more insight. thumb.gif

MATX and they have are in the only 2 slots
Yes when I click activate all displays I have no issues.
The monitor shows in NVIDA control panel. It just does not display.

I only get issues when I span them.
