All three monitors working properly, but only two at any one time. Have attempted to connect these for the past few days. 3 Samsung monitors all set at 1920x1080. Two are identical, one is more recent purchase. I was informed by the guys at Future Shop not to have any adaptors as part of the cable connections from the monitors to the video card, so upgraded two of the cables. All 3 monitors now have direct connections.

I have used the Catalyst Control Center to effectively extend the desktop onto two monitors. Only two. Only two at any one time. And this being any combination: left and middle, middle and right side, or left and right monitors. The other monitor always stays black. (yes, power is on). Tried attaching screen grabs of all the tecno stuff but unable.

Anyone with any insights?

You need to use an ACTIVE adapter in order to activate the third screen..

In my case, I use one from XFX, but there's another brands, like HIS.. Do some research in places like Amazon, or NewEgg, and the find it in your local stores..

Just remember, must be ACTIVE, and certificated from AMD...

 

Best regards..
