post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
OK so I have all 3 monitors (link below) and a sapphire DP to dvi adaptor. I'm getting two screens to show up, but not the 3rd. Im' trying to use 1 dvi, 1 hdmi and the DP->dvi dongle.

Suggestions?

Is the non working monitor the one on the dongle? Have you tried that monitor on a different port to confirm it is a working monitor?

I suspect your dongle is the issue. Need to make sure its a supported one for eyefinity.

yes but it detecs the hdmi display as DTV where the other two are DFP. Only difference I can see between it and the other two

i thought you needed an actual dipaly port compatible monitor to run 3 way eyfinity, not just a dongle.

What kind of hdmi adapter are you using? Did your card come with it? You've got teh right DP adapter.

My 3 dvi dells show up as DFP, with their correct name labels, etc.

That DP adapter shows as a hit and miss... its not the "right" one... as its not the approved type. But if you can get it to work, thats great.

not using an hdmi adapter, maybe thats the problem? Im just using an hdmi cord straight from the monitor to the card's hdmi port

Lol, the box only says ATI Eyefinity on it.

Try using a hdmi/dvi adapter. Using the hdmi only treats the display as a TV iirc. My setup is using dvi only.

Hmm, thought you couldn't have both a DVI and HDMI connector with an Eyefinity setup... Hmmmmm
