Got my adapter and my monitors, eyefinity still not giving me 3 montior setups..Help! - Page 2

I am not sure any one monitor is misbehaving so to speak, its they will all do as they are told, just not at the same time. I set the DP-DVI cable to the primary monitor (it was on one of the side one's) and still no luck.

I just double checked, all the spouting off I did about buying the right adapter...there are two nearly identical one's this one and this I bought the $21.99 seeing as how it looked nearly identical and had the eyefinity approved sticker on it and said active on it and I didnt see the $29.99 as I was too busy haggling with the sales guy over the price of the monitors...I think after all my hard talk about planning ahead and making sure I got the right one, I screwed up. Damn, I will get it tomorrow, irritated with myself for such a rookie mistake. Thanks. Hopefully that does it.

What this guy is explaining is the EXACT problems i am having. I am waiting on a Active mini Display port adapter to DVI. I currently am having the drama's with 2 X passive mini display adapters to DVI. I read in a different forum that pin 20 which allows for power to be passed between cpu and monitor is the culprit on some of the adapters which are not following the mini-Display specifications. Check this out:

http://www.necdisplay.com/cms/docume...ort_Notice.pdf
http://www.displayport.org/consumer/?q=content/faq
and http://forums.amd.com/game/messagevi...hreadid=127563

Maybe that will help. Please keep me posted as i am about to implode and refuse to stay up till 4AM with this again. I have been a sys admin for over 15 years and this is the single most frustrating problem i can recall in several years. Irony is that it's at home.

Thats what is really really pissing me off, it says active on the package, it says eyefinity multi display validated on the package and it looks identical, its almost like its a ploy to get you to buy the wrong one first. O well, I am going to bed, the sooner I fall asleep, the sooner I wake up and drive myself down to fry's. Thanks again for your help, wish I had paid closer attention to your advice

The irony is that this was finally fixed with a trip to the apple store for a
proprietary apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter, part #
MB571Z/A.
Now that i have spent 30 minutes in awe i am about to load up COD Black Ops and enjoy the fruits of my labour in 5760 x 1080... ")

Im assuming that adapter cost you "apple" pricing, a single link <29.99 works at resolutions of 1920x1200 or below, guess if you ever wanted go 3x30s you now have a working duel link adapter
