it will depend on what graphics card you have. if the computer has integrated graphics or is a laptop then it is not possible

please post your system specs if you really want help with this

You would need 2 Nvidia GPUs for that.
And you'd need to use Nvidia Surround tech if you wanted something like an eyefinity setup.

just to be clear, 2 nvidia gpus(or a dual card) or a Gtx 6xx series(as it can handle multiple screens in this generation alone now)

Not sure about nvidia cards, but you might have to disable SLI so that you can run the cards independently (2x screens per GPU).

BTW, do you have the correct cables? And did you enable Dual screens in Screen Properties or nVidia control panel?

You need to use One DVI port on the card and the other the HDMI port on the same card or the two DVI ports on the card to drive two monitors.
The third monitor can be driven from any of the ports on the second 550Ti.
