HELP! GTX 690 Nvidia Surround

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Good day, first and for most my previous setup is a 2x Sapphire HD 7970 with that I don't have a problem/issues with my eyefinity setting..
I can easily have it set to 5760x1080

but now, I switched to a GTX 690. I have 3 23" monitors...., for my plugs/cords from the monitor to gpu : 1 DVI, 1 DVI, 1 VGA(DVI adaptor)
the three monitors are working no problem with that. My problem is i can't get a 5760 x1080 resolution. I only get 1920 x 1080 and the setting of my monitor is per monitor. I tried a 5760 x 1080 wallpaper and the wallpaper goes per monitor. not a whole 5760 x 1080.. when I play games the max resolution I get is only 1920 x 1080..

GTX 690 has 4 slots at the GPU 2x DVI-I 1x DVI 1x MINI DP... when I am going to enable surround I can only set two monitors. the third one is the one what makes it unable. it says "move to another plug in the same gpu" but I already switch the plugs at the back for all possible setting.
any idea how can I make it work? is there a problem that im using a vga cord? thanks and cheeers!! hope anyone can help me.

You have to use the display port if I remember correctly.

the THREE of them are in the same model.
and all of the monitors are working.
the problem is I couldn't get a 5760 x 1080 display

When I open the screen resolution menu. all the three monitors are extended but the setting is per monitor
3 1920 x 1080. probably I should get a 5760 x 1080 during the extended display right?

When configuring the Nvidia Surround (via Span Display Surround on Nvidia Control panel)
It shows that 2 of the plugged monitors are in the correct socket and the other 1 isn't. When I click apply a pop box appear showing " 1 of 3 - Surround Display "check" 3 of 3 - Surround Display "check" 2 of 3 "Move to another connector on the same GPU. Then, I tried every possible connections of the DVIs to the GPU. I put them in all orders possible but still always given me same result. either of the 3 monitors will still be unable.
