I'm trying to set up three monitors with a 650 TI. 2 x Dell 2004fps, one hooked up with a mini HDMI to DVI connector, the other DVI to DVI. The third monitor is a Topaz 24 inch, DVI to DVI. All three monitors are detected, but in the Nvidia control panel, I can only select two monitors in different combinations at a time.

Have you tried right clicking the screen going to resolution, and tried playing with the screens there?

I can see and set the resolution for two of the monitors at the time, but not all three.

What operating system are you currently running to my knowledge you may be limited because of windows. I think windows will normally only let you go with 2 monitors. And through Nvidia control panel you can go up to 4 I believe with Nvidia 3D surround.

XP service pack 3. In Nvidia control panel I can only select 2 out of the 3 monitors at a time for output, but all 3 are detected. I'm trying to get one 24 at 1920x1200 and two 20s at 1600x1200 working, could that be the problem?

Hmm, I remember a guy on the forums had a similar issue. Does your motherboard have onboard video access at all if so I would turn it on and then plug one monitor into that and maybe you can get the 3rd off that.

unfortunately no, and that may not be able to help cause I'm trying to run an older game (rfactor) in triple.

Best solution

You can only drive up to 2 monitors on Windows XP
