2 out of 3 monitors are working whichever one i plug into the active display port doesnt work

i have a picture of the back of my pc to show you setup just ask for it

also CCC dosnt work but i have all the driver and gfx and everything is working correctly just CCC i cant open... but i can set it up through control panel and it read that there is a third screen a and i can move my mouse there with a delay to get it back the only thing is isnt doing is showing anything......(also wheni sprint screen and paste in paint it shows three screen worth)

so i assumed it was the display port so i went back to centercom saying i think you sold me the wrong cord but they assured me its not the cord its how ive set it up S:

ive played around with all the buttons on the screen with no results

graphics card is a 7850

if anyone could PLEASE help me it would be greatly appreciated...i spent alot of money to get this system and to have it not work is rather frustrating

Here are the basic Eyefinity rules from AMD's site:

-The first two monitors can connect to the graphics card with any display output on your product: HDMI, VGA, DVI or DisplayPort.
-The third (or greater) display must be connected to the graphics card via DisplayPort.
-If your monitor does not have a DisplayPort connection, you will need an active DisplayPort adapter for it.
-Every family of GPUs supports a different maximum number of displays.

Have you followed all of the above?

- first 2 monitors are connected directly to gfx card third is connected via a display port

"""-If your monitor does not have a DisplayPort connection, you will need an active DisplayPort adapter for it"""
not entirely sure what you mean here


"""Every family of GPUs supports a different maximum number of displays"""
or here


Sorry im not to great with pc talk

It appears to be an active connection, so you are probably OK in that respect.

You mentioned that CCC is not working. What version are you running? Have you tried reinstalling it?

It's an active Display Port you're using so you really should not have a problem.
Have you used the Create Eyefinity Display Group using the Catalyst Control Center (CCC)??
Are all 3 Displays being detected?
And Keep resolutions to a minimum before setting the Displays so as to not exceed the maximum Resolution allowed by the GPU.

Actually, follow the Driversweeper process and let us know what error messages you're getting when you try to reinstall the AMD drivers.... if any.

Here's a little reference thread

i dont get any errors when installing and my computer reads which gfx card i have in and it runs games perfectly, its just that CCC will not open due to me not being able to update windows somthing to do with .netframework from what i have gathered

Errrrrrrr...:)  and we've all heard "Assumptions are the mother of all......."

Yes, it would be advisable to use the CCC to setup Eyefinity.

The fact that Windows Update seems to be broken is already posing a massive security risk to your PC. I would reformat.

You can setup multiple displays through the Display Options for Win 7, that means you can get monitors to function, but, you will need all the apps to be configured individually to be able to use the screen space if you wanted all the real estate to be occupied.
CCC on the other hand creates one large plot of screen space not needing the individual apps to be configured.
So yes it is a hell of a lot more easier.

You need to first check which updates have failed to be installed and then just retry them. Usually certain updates will not move on if you don't have the base update installed. Just check in the windows update center and see which ones haven't been installed and install them one at a time.... oldest update first.

Even if you reformat you rig tomorrow, you will still need to update it to get the .Net thing updated.... :) 
Might as well try the Driversweeper. If that doesn't work.... then you can try the updates and finally if they both don't work, you can go in for a reformat.

Try alyoshka's suggestion first; if it works you can save yourself some effort. If it doesn't work, you can think about a format.
