Three Monitor Setup - 7970 - One monitor cannot be enabled

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to set up a third display for my computer. I have 2 mini displayports, 1 dvi, 1 hdmi on the card.

My monitors have HDMI and VGA, but no DVI support (they're pretty cheap).

I've currently got 2 mini displayport > HDMI adapters. And one DVI to HDMI adaptor. I've tried different combinations of using all four ports on the card, but cannot seem to get the third monitor to work. Any suggestions?

You need a dual DVI connector for more than 2 monitors.

Incorrect. OP needs to ensure that one of those DP->HDMI adapters are active, because I suspect he's presently using three passive adapters, which will not work.
