I have been through very much today trying to get my tri screen working and i think im very close after 31 posts here i think the other person who was helping me ragequited lol http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/340681-33-usual-win7-...

this is what i have

and then this is what this guy has that worked for him
http://www.buy.com/prod/visiontek-active-video-cable-di...

this is his forum post
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/335458-33-getting-mon...

pretty much we both had the exact same problem but his graphics card was a radeon 5670 and my is a 5770 he had 1 main screen and then 2 outer screens that were same but different size than the middle which is how mine is set up.

this is my setup

middle monitor connected via dvi -> into vga converter -> then into pc

right monitor connected via dvi

then left monitor connected via dvi -> into active display port adapter -> into pc

My pc knows the screen is connected and i can scroll over to the left and then back to the middle so my pc knows that the screen is connected but my screen is not producing a image is it because i have a bad active display port?

What are you connecting TO your graphic card? 1 VGA, 1 DVI and 1 DisplayPort?

You cannot use an VGA at the same time than the DVI, since they use the same bus.

Most people connect 2 DVI + 1 DisplayPort or 1 DVI + 1 HDMI + 1 DisplayPort to achieve an 3-screen output.

Hope it helps! :)

Yes, if your card has an DisplayPort, it should be very probable that you can support EyeFinity...
