I am running a AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series, not excactly sure which one precisely.

But i have for the past 6 months been running eyefinity and triple monitor display with an hdmi>hdmi - dvi>hdmi & dp>hdmi>hdmi without any big troubles.. but when i recently updated from catalyst driver 12.? to 14.4, the catalyst center no longer lets me activate my third monitor, i can activate 2 monitors in random orders, but everytime i try to activate the third, it tells me to deactivate one of the monitors..

Does anyone know a solution for this?

I would suggest you completely uninstall the 14.4 driver, and then install the 14.6 RC driver. I have not had an issue like you're describing. I always uninstall the old drivers first, then reboot, then install new drivers, then reboot.

Use old catalyst version 13.12. It works for me.

I reciently have the same problem using 6800's. I know my thrid monitor is good... but I can't use more than 2 monitors since 14.4 update.I'll try an older driver package and see if I can again enjoy my 3 monitor eyefinity arrangement. Instead of starting a new topic, since I have the same problem I've written here. Not hijacking your topic. If a seperate start of this topic is preferred, let me know. I'll report back.
