The problem I'm having now is that as soon as I plug in this adapter it makes the monitor its hooked up to start blinking at random (every 5sec or 15sec est.) & the only time it doesn't is when I have it in Eyefinity-mode at the LOWEST possible resolution like 2400x1800, anything higher and it blinks. So basically Eyefinity works but not w/o making whatever monitor its hooked up to blink every five secs lol ugh. Anyone else have/had this problem? Should I switch to a passive VGA/DP adapter maybe? Read that a couple brands of that have worked for others but every forum is telling me something different! Ahh the blinking!!! >_<
I have the same adapter and I am afraid to say I've got the same problem at the moment. I've gotten no response from dell. I *do* hear the new ATI Drivers improve this, but I've yet to test it. I intend to test this very soon as I am getting my hands on another dell 3007WFP. I hope some one else has a solution.
Im having the same issue at my shop - tried ~5 different 5770's (gigabyte, sapphire), a 5850 etc, ~4 different rigs, ~4 active display port to dvi adaptors, HP pasive display port to vga adaptors, 2 different sets of monitors (samsung, LG's), different combinations (dvi/hdmi/vga), different cables, tried updating motherboard bios's, windows reinstalls, custom drivers etc, custom bios's for the video cards etc - no luck at all
I still get flickering atleast on the displayport converted monitor etc with no luck
I am having the same issue but there is a fix, you have to lower the resolution on the monitor with the display port adapter..My monitor is currently running perfectly at 1440 by 900 nut it will not run past that. It does suck because it defeats the whole purpose of having three monitors when 2 of them are set nice and high res and this one has to be set lower..
I have the 5770 and the Bizlink, $99 Display Port adapter and I have been unable to get it working. I tried everything including shorter cables, powered usb ports, different monitors and I have even tried using some older video card drivers..
I have heard of some people having luck changing the bios in the video card but I could not find an updated bios for the 5770.
I have been thinking about buying another 5770 and using a cross fire set up. I just have no idea how to fix this.

I currently have my monitors set up so I have 3 separate displays if that makes sense. I am thinking that it may function better if we try creating a "group" instead. Are people with this problem using the group setting or the individual set up?
Also, if anyone has used the group setting, could you tell me what the resolution is supposed to be for three monitors running 1680 by 1050 for instance? Do I just multiply this by three and use that or what? I have no idea but so far my attempts have failed at using the group feature.
FYI-The Powered Display Port adapter works stable if you lower the resolution.
