So I have the ATI Radeon HD 5670 Graphics card and for a while I had 2 monitors running, using the HDMI and DVI ports. I got a VGA monitor for free and I decided to use it as a 3rd display. I bought an adapter from ebay, this :
So I received it today, I connected everything and I'm still having the "disable one display first" problem. However, when I rick-click the desktop and press "screen resolution" I see the 3 displays, and when I try to extend the 3rd it auto disables another.
I have also updated the drivers and then updated the 11.6b Hotfix and then did the rollback because the Hotfix still didn't solve the screen flickering problem.
One last thing, the monitor setup is as follows:
24" Acer DVI to DVI
17" HP DVI Adapter to HDMI
17" VGA Adapter to DP
Please help, I've read so much and I'm still at a loss.
Well what about adding another videocard. Maybe the same one, my computer is xcrossfirex ready. Currently going for $70 on Amazon, and returning the DP adapter would cover $40 of it. How feasible is this plan?
Ok well when I receive the funds I will look further into it and maybe bump this thread. I'm going to see if its not against forums rules. But I don't know whether my computer is outdated. So maybe someone can shed some light into that. My specs are as follows:
MoBo: Asus P7P55D LE
Intel i5-750 (Quad HT 2.66Ghz 8mb Cache)
RAM: Kingston 4GP DDR3 @ 1333Mhz (2 x 2gb)
HDD: Western Digital 500gb, 16mb Cache
Graphics: ATI 5670 1gb 128-bit
