Eyefinity 3 monitor setup help

Hello, I'm trying to setup 3 monitors but am coming across a couple problems.

I have 2 24 inch screens and a 27 inch. All are 1080p and all have a VGA and a HDMI input.

I am using a Radeon HD 7950 with a DVI, a HDMI and 2 mini displayport connections.

I can get two screens to work at any given time but I have not been able to get the 3rd to work.

my connections go as such:


displayport
GPU: displayport----HDMI-----Screen 1
HDMI -------------------Screen 2
DVI-----------VGA------Screen 3

But only 2 work at a time. It doesn't matter which two but only 2 work.

Any help would be great.

Thanks :)

    1. If you want to game across three monitors, they have to be the exact same resolution and size.
    2. One screen AT LEAST needs to be connected VIA a display port to a display port capable monitor. OR via an ACTIVE display port to DVI/HDMI adapter.
    3. You can not use a VGA display with this sort of setup. It needs to be a digital capable monitor.

    I see.
    So how would I make this work? get a DVI to HDMI adapter?

    That depends, if you just wanna use three monitors and game on one then you can do it with the screens you have.

    Send me your EXACT screen model number + the Display port to HDMI adapter.

    Ok, I use two Samsung 24 inch 1080p monitors (http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/office/monitors/led/LS24B300HL/ZA)
    and on Samsung 27 inch 1080p monitor (http://www.samsung.com/au/consumer/pc-peripherals/monitor/archive/LS27A350HS/XY

    This is the miniDP to HDMI adapter I use. (I just ordered another)

    Also, I wish to game on all three monitors.
    Thanks :)
  5. Well that apater is not active. You will need this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882579046

    You can try gaming on the three monitors.But since they are not the same size, I am not sure if it will work.
