Hi everyone,


lament its translation just google


I sold my graphics card gigabyte 6970 and I replace it with a sapphire vapor X 7970 GHZ edition on my old graphics card, I knew connect up to 4 monitors because I buy two active cables sapphire + two mini diplayport to displayport.

So now I have a problem with my 4 th display screens, here are the outputs I have on the graphics card;

I use my active display port cable + dvi output without the two active hdmi cable but the output? is the problem because I did not find a commercially available cable that is hdmi to displayport female,


What solution do you have and if you get a connect 4 screens so a DP output + HDMI + 2 DVI output, thank you for your,

The problem is the driver according some  other posts in this forum.

I have similar problems even with two cards:

HD 7979 with 2 x active DP to DVI, 1 x DVI

HD 5770 with DVI

When I conect the monitor with the second card, all oher will get black (usally at least one monitor will not work)

That card if I'm looking at it right only has 2 DVI, 1 Display port and 1 HDMI. So I'm pretty sure its not going to drive 4 displays. 

Because every display past 2 has to be a displayport / mini displayport to >X< active adapter.
