Hello everyone, i've searched the forums but found no solution.
I have 3 identical acer monitors, 2 of them are hooked up to dvi slots in my saphire 7970 graphics card and are working fine. The third monitor is hooked through dvi into an active display port to dvi adapter but shows nothing on the screen. How can i get this monitor working? In the settings my computer is only detecting the 2 monitors.
here is the dvi to display port adapter on newegg

You can't use both DVI outputs. You have to use one DVI, HDMI/DisplayPort and Display Port. The two DVI ports are shared.

The two working monitors right now are both dvi straight to dvi on the back of the graphics card.
