Hello, I recently have been trying to use triple monitors, but for some reason when I try to use the 3rd monitor I get "unable to save display settings" whenever I click apply
I have an AMD Radeon HD 7800  and am connecting using one DVI, One HDMI and one third is display port that has a dvi to vga connector connected to it, and the vga going from the connector to my monitor, the displayport is the one that won''t work.
This is the specific displayport I have, could there be a problem with it specifically, or are there other things I could do to test?

I would presume of the resolution being set on DVI dual when its on VGA?


Edit : See DVI link on supported resolutions http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html

Try swapping around your monitor connection combinations to see if it's a monitor or cable/adapter issue.


Unless I misunderstood, it appears you're using the linked adapter (DP to DVI) along with a DVi to VGA adapter. Two adapters for one monitor??



DP to DVI for one monitor

HDMI for second monitor

DVI to VGA for third monitor

After the game, the King and the Pawn go into the same box...
