Just installed the V7900 and have one veiwsonic monitor one Sony 50 inch LCD tv/monitor and two dell monitors. All the monitors will work individually but not all four at the same time. Any combination of the three will work also but can't gety all four to work. Any ideas?

The FirePro cards can all handle 4 monitors, but it will depend on the connections in use. If you're using passive adapters, then you will only be able to get 2 (sometimes 3-4, if you're lucky, depending on the monitors in use), but it's pretty rare. For 4 monitors, you will need to make sure that you have active adapters in use for your DisplayPort connections (or using DisplayPort direct). In your situation, 3 active adapters will cover it for sure, and you can always use 4 if you wish. The card can only do a set number of passive connections at once, but 3 active adapters for your 4 monitors on your V7900 should be all that you need.

For a list of certified adapters, you can refer to www.amd.com/dongles .
