How to setup Eyefinity to support three monitors on HD 5700/5800 series card?

Monitors are connected the following way: DVI-DVI-DisplayPort

Currently driver does not allow me to do this. If I click on the third monitor to extended it, I get message to disable other one.

I am using DisplayPort adapter to DVI, so I do not have native displayPort monitor. Might be that a problem?

To establish Eyefinity on three monitors you can only do this to use DisplayPort connection. You can connect on DisplayPort only a native DisplayPort monitor or DVI/HDMI/VGA monitor with ACTIVE DisplayPort adapter.

All credits should go to the Snark, since he gave the crucial hint.

  • ATI Response: Currently you must have a Display Port monitor with no adapters. Passive adapters do not work. Active adapters are being tested and some are working, once testing is complete a list of Active adapters should be available online. Nov 6, 2009 at 20:44
