I have ATI card with VGA, DVI and HDMI. My question is how can I use all three outputs at the same time? I got a HDMI to VGA converter cable, but when all monitors are hooked up, only two monitors are alive at any one time.
Does this phenomenon exist for ALL ATI & nVidia cards? Or is it ATI vards prior to the 5000 series and eyefinity. I have three great monitors and an adequate video card (1 GB) so I am hoping to somehow be able to use 3 monitors and extend my desktop across all three.
Are there any softweare utilities which can probe the Video card and 'patch' the drivers to activate the third port, or is this a physical limitation due to the thrid posrt being a 'peel' from one of the other 2.
Finally, I was tempted to consider a PCI solution in addition to my main PCIe card. The theroy was that thePCI could be used to drive the third display. I had lots of blue screen of death and freezups so I gave that up - drivers are critical in this case if I am not wrong.
Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.
