Eyefinity setup problems

I'm running a HIS 5850 and I'm trying to setup 3 emachines (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824114004) 23 LCD monitors in eyefinity. I have two of the monitors run via DVI and the third has a passive display port adapter to hdmi to a DVI adapter.

I can get any two of the monitors to work at once, but not the third. In the catalyst control panel it shows the third display, but if I try to copy the main desktop to it I have to disconnect one of the others.

Does anyone have any ideas, short of buying an active display port adapter?

  1. The workaround didn't work for me, probably because I'm going from display port to HDMI and they recommend going to VGA. I think I'm going to try this:

    That will work. It's ATI Eyefinity certified (printed on the box). I have the same adapter from Powercolor and it wored right out of the box. Make sure your DVI connection is single link.
