I want to have my setup so I can extend my desktop over 3 screens, or even 2 screens and duplicate (or clone) the 2nd screen and I cant get it to work.
I have a 5850 with 2 monitors connected to the DVI ports (1 using an analog vga adapter not sure if thats important) and the 3rd connected to the HDMI port.
Have latest drivers installed running win7.
Anyone help me out?
For 3 monitors with that setup, the display port connection must be used. You can use 2 of the 3 connections between dvi/hdmi, but either need a display port connection or more likely an ACTIVE display port adapter to hdmi/dvi.
The key here is ACTIVE display port adapter, check out the link belowhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815129011
This is for a regular display port connection, they also make mini display port adapters
