I've had a Firepro V5900 Running in a DELL Precision T3500 running Win 7 64 with three monitors connected for several years now. During that time, anytime the disc is reformatted or a monitor removed & replaced I have a nightmarish time getting all three monitors to work again.

Today I was finally given a 30" monitor to replace one of the previous three 22" & surprise surprise, I can extend the desktop to any two monitors fine, but not all three. The three monitors are detected, but a third, any third, will not enable. Just get the error message "Unable to Save Display Settings"

Monitors are connected DVI x1 & DP to DVI active adapter x2.

[22" Portrait, 1050x1680, Adapter]  [30" landscape, 1920x1200, Adapter]  [22" Landscape, 1680x1050, DVI]

For the life of me today I can't remember what I've done previously to get this happening again & it's driving me insane. I've installed and removed several sets of Drivers from the past two years, connected them in different combinations, rebooted countless times....all have failed.

Any help would be appreciated?
