Eyefinity causes black screens in every game

So ever since I installed the 11.11 drivers BF3 would give me black screens if I tried to play it in eyefinity. The game would start, but my displays would all turn on and off as I got a sound of a device connecting and reconnecting, and this would keep up until I went back into single monitor mode. Since it was confined only to BF3 I figured it must have been a problem with that game and didn't really think much of it.

However, ever since upgrading to 11.12 I got the same issue in Shogun 2 as well. So I reinstalled and wiped with ATIman uninstaller as someone suggested, only to have the problem even worse. Now Hard Reset also gave me the same issue (whereas it was fine in the past). However, in these games the problem was a lot less severe. The black screens would only occur after several minutes of playing instead of instantly, and there was a lot more time in between the black screens.

So then I figured "maybe it's a problem with 11.12" and upgraded to 12.1 preview instead. And now EVERY SINGLE GAME I have is doing this. Arkham City, for example, which was fine until today, is now black screening.

I have 2x 6970s (neither are OC'd), 3x Dell U2311H monitors, this MDP to DVI adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B-006B-DisplayPort-Single-Link-Certified/dp/B004071ZXA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1318379998&sr=8-5) for one of the monitors (the other two are connected via DVI), and an i7 930 OC'd to 4GHz. My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and as stated already my drivers are 12.1 preview.

    I thought I was the only one. I am in the same exact boat. I already changed video cards went through just about all kinds of displayports and I get absolutely no results. I have two vp2365wb monitors and one LG Flatron. I really don't think its a monitor issue because just connecting the displayport without the monitor starts the blinking problem. It got better with a vga connector on one monitor but games are unplayable. I really don't know what else it could be. The only thing I can think of is maybe my motherboard is not sending enough power to my video card, although this is highly unlikely. I have an asus px58d premium with a 750 watt PSU, a sapphire 6950 HD and an MSI twin frost 6950 HD that I bought because I thought it was a bad displayport on my sapphire video card. I really don't know what else to try. I alreadt tried the USB powered accell displayport aswell. I even plugged it to a USB powered straight from the outlet with no results. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!! I am about to give up on eyefinity and go back to Nvidia.
