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??

 

Try:

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...
