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

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?

  1. 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! :)
  2. thanks for that info nobody ever told me about that but i have concluded that the display port i have bought is corrupted i unplugged all my screens exept the display port and still the screen doesnt work so now im getting a friend to go out and get it right now so ill still be here

    hopefully this works lol
  3. o wait does it have to support eyefinity i guess so doesnt it?
  4. Good luck finding what is broken and hopefully you fix it! :)

    If you still have some questions you can ask it here.
  5. Yes, if your card has an DisplayPort, it should be very probable that you can support EyeFinity...
