Hello Everyone, i am new here and i am desperate for help!!!

I have purchased brand new AMD HD 6970 from ebay. Was very exited to get it. I have this as my system:

INTEL QX9650 3.0GHZ
ASUS P5KC MB
4GB DDR 2 800mhz
noone cared about size of the HDD its way above 2TB
DVD RW + all the rest of the little bits.
POWER SUPPLY MASTER COOLER 750W
WINDOWS 7 x64 with all updates, and bla bla bla

CARD IS PROPARTY CONNECED WITH 1x8pin and 1X6pin

Now my problem is this, i cant connect more then 1 monitor to it, when the reason of this purchas was multi dispaying. I have 4 19" Monitors 3x ASUS and 1x HP w1907v.

Now this graphic card have 2 DVI ports, 2 Mini Display ports 1.2, 1 HDMI.

Right i only connected 2 screens throug 2 DVI ports and one does not want to be recorgnized, so i though maybee its a DVI to VGA adapter, so have tried another few, same thing. I havent stopped there, i oreder MINI DIspay to VGA converter. And tryed to connect through that and here i saw a mirracle when loading the system i saw 2 screens working, but only until i have Loaded Windows. After that 1 monitor that has been conected to the Mini Disppay Port went to sleep.

I Have tryed all the drivers online, well most of them for sure, from ATi from AMD, from CLUB, from SAPPHIRE. Still the same thing.
Maybe someone can give me an idea what shall i do coz i am all run out and about to send it back.

By the way other wise with 1 screen card is ok, gaming and etc all good.

could you post some more info on the monitors. you can only use one vga cable or monitor from the dvi outputs on the card.
one dvi port is a dvi-"d", which means digital only. using 2 dvi-d cables should do it if the monitors have dvi connections.

you may also be able to get more vga connections if you use display port active adapter to vga, i think they be mini display port , be sure to check. xfx card says displayport but they are mini display port.

try to use the ones from this list. be sure they say active

also if the monitors have a higher resolution than 1920 x 1200 you will need duallink cables and adapters.

hope that helps.
