Hi all , im having some issues with seting up my eyefinity 5x1.

Problem 1 - Windows disply says "unable to save settings" whenever i try to extend desktop to any more than 3 screens ( sometimes only lets me save 2)

all drivers are up to date and i am also using active adapters

Are the DP > HDMI adapters Active? They will need to be to enable Eyefinity setups beyond 2 monitors. Look at the link below for validated, Active DP/mDP > HDMI, DVI and VGA adapters. I buy the Accell adapters because they always work.


Hope this helps.
