Trouble Setting Up 3 Monitors - Page 2

post #11 of 23
No I mean, have you tried two displays in both DVI, and then two in one DVI and one displayport? Just to check that the adapter works fine..

Check the supported list I linked you earlier.
As I said, it is on that list. Accell b086b-001b

I'm confused by what you mean. The screen using the adapter is currently running just fine. It won't let me add the second DVI screen.

What else might be the issue? Should I try to get a new adapter even though mine is on the approved list?

Have you tried reinstalling drivers? This doesn't sound like a hardware-oriented issue. The 5770 can power three displays without an active adapter. Active adapters are only required for eyefinity.

Solved the problem! It was the adapter, even though it's on the approved list posted above. I went and bought a new adapter (Active DisplayPort to DVI) and used that for one monitor, DVI for the 2nd, and HDMI for my TV. Seems to work fine now.

here's a question. Can you overclock you card and not have the two additional monitors flicker? I am thinking of trying this route since I can't get a third gpu to work if I have crossfire turned on.
