3x1 Eyefinity + 1 Display *Need Solution*

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Ive recently set up my Eyefininty and would like to have a 4th monitor displaying my desktop at all times. I'm having issues trying to get this to enable. When i create a display group and enable Eyefinity everything's fine until i plug in the 4th monitor. Once the 4th monitor is plugged in the Eyefinity group is disabled along with one monitor in the group, and the 4th monitor enables. I cannot seem to get all 4 monitors on simultaneously.

Currently I Crossfire 2x HD 6950 Sapphire Dirt 3 Editions. And all the ports are being used up by the 4 monitors on the main card.

Maybe my cards do not support this? I considered throwing my old Nvidia card in a 3rd port and plugging my monitor into that. I was told this could work but decrease performance on my main cards.

Monitor 1: DVI
Monitor 2: DVI
Monitor 3: Active Display Port - DVI Adapter
Monitor 4: HDMI - DVI Adapter

If you have a i5 or i7 just connect it with the igpu

They're all the same resolutions and you are using proper active adapters correct?


Once you've the eyefinity array you go into desktop mgmt and go to creating and arranging, and you right click the panel you want to separate and extend.

The 4th display is not 1920 x 1200 its 1600 x 1200.

Since the res is smaller on the 4th panel it should work w/o issue.

Test the 4th panel in a 3x1 with two panels. Will it create an eyefinity group?
