Hey all, am having some problems trying to get all 3 screens working of my ATI HD 5770

I have bought these two leads

Now am not sure if there the right ones I need

But when I plug in "two DVI leads" and this "display port" lead only 2 screens work and I can't get the 3rd to work (just comes up blank)
Even when I go to Screen Resolution in windows its turned off and I am unable to turn it on.

I was wondering if someone could shine some light on this topic because ive hit a wall I just can't seem to jump over.

hi your card has 2 dvi 1 hdmi and one display port
to run Eyefinity

the third screen needs to be connected to the display port
i take it that you third screen dose not have a display port connection
so you need to use a ACTIVE dongle to convert you display port to what ever connection you third display has here is a link to ati certed dongles

im in the same boat as you i want. but i want my display port to be converted to HDMI but from what i see on the link above i can not get a display port to hdmi ACTIVE dongle so i have opened my own question on Toms hardware

i hope this has helped you and gets you on the way to getting your third screen working
