I've got the 3870X2 graphics card with 4 DVI outputs, however it will only recognize 2 of my monitors. I've restarted windows several times. The third monitor is plugged in. I've gone into the ATI Catalyst advanced manager and told it to detect to monitors, but it comes up empty.

Any advice is welcome.



Got it figure out. Had to disable the crossfire then it recognized the 3rd monitor and everything works fine. I'm new to this stuff and didn't realize the default was to have the crossfire enabled.
