Default Need help with a 3-monitor setup using a Sapphire HD 5870

Hello there,

I am currently running a 2-monitor setup (2x Dell SP2309W) using the DVI ports on the 5870, and everything seems to be working fine. Today I decided to connect my third monitor (Asus VH242H) using the HDMI port on the card, and it wouldn't detect anything. I was able to get it to work by disabling one of the other monitors. Why is this happening? What do I have to do to get all three monitors to work together?

Thanks for looking

I'm no ATI expert but I think you have to use the Displayport for one of the monitors to enable Eyefinity.
