Hello, I am trying to run all 3 of my displays (I have 3 Asus VW246H)
Catalyst only allows me to have 2 active at once.
I have 2 plugged into dvi and the 3rd into mdp with a dvi to mdp connector.
I'm running 2 6970s in crossfire.

Can anyone help me fix my 3rd display?

Thanks

Warren

Is your mdp to dvi cable an active or passive adapter? It must be an active adapter to enable your third display.

It is most likely passive then in that case, which won't allow you to enable Eyefinity. You can grab an active adapter for about $25 from Newegg or Amazon, and that will allow you to get your third display up and running.
