Hi. This card is driving me crazy. Summary :

4 x dvi monitors and 2 x dp

2 x minidp-dp adapters and 4 ACTIVE mini dp-dvi adapters

Whatever the combination of adapters I use only 2 screens will display. All 6 are detected, but 4 remain disabled at all times.

I have read, read, and read some more on the internet and I still do not know what I am doing wrong.

I'm running XP 32bit and the monitors are all Dell Ultrasharp 1909's.

Any help much appreciated.

you will need to upgrade to windows 7 64bit, windows xp does not support 6 monitor eyefinity according to the website.

besides all the other benefits you will get using 64bit windows 7.
