    I'm trying to run 3 monitors in my setup.

    Currently I have them setup as:

    1 X BenQ 27" HDMI connected

    1 x Samsung 21" DVI connected

    1 x Dell 24" DVI > ActiveDisplay Port Connected with the adpater

    Running a AMD 6950.

    I have read that you may only use the one side of the GFX card for Eyefinity?

    My problem is: I can't get the monitor using my DVI > ActiveDisplay Port adapter to turn on (run/get a signal/etc.). I've tried switching the DVIs around between the normal DVI port and DisplayPort (with adapter) but to no success. I am only going to run the 27" with HDMI.

    I am up to date with CCC drivers and the third screen is not detected in CCC nor the Windows Screen Resolution Settings.

    Hope there is someone out there that can provide me with a bit of help. Cheers!
