Triple Screen Issue

I have been running triple screens for a few years without issue, today I have been experiencing an issue that I can't find the source of it. Could anyone help?

I have a RX 580 graphics card with three monitors running from it, two on HDMI and one on DVI. Any combination of two monitors will work fine but not three, they just flicker to a black screen, make the connected / disconnected sounds and repeat before I can look at display settings.

I have reinstalled the graphics card drivers, tried every combination of monitor and cable and couldnt find an issue with any of them.

Any ideas?

Ditch the DVI for a DP?

GURU3D DISPLAY DRIVER UNINSTALLER from safe mode. then GURU3D Clean Drivers (if they do it for AMD too?)

then at that point, start troubleshooting physically (wires) s

I have already uninstalled the driver, rebooted the pc, confirmed it was back on the crappy windows included driver and then downloaded and installed the driver again.

I have swapped cables, all work desperately and together but when all are plugged in together its like they fight to be the primary monitor or something.

I don't have a display port on the other monitor and up until this afternoon it was working fine in this configuration for nearly three years.

What are your display options saying? Do you see one showing as disabled?

Second this. Also, I have had different ports on a GPU "Go Bad"

Maybe an adapter? is 10$ worth the try?

With two monitors connected everything in there looks fine, once the third is plugged in I dont get a chance to look as the screens flicker between the settings of connected and not so quickly that its not possible.
