Hi all am looking for a bit of advice on buying an active mini displayport adapter and am not sure which one and why one I have already bought does not work.
I am running a HD7850 and trying to get eyefinity working so I can run 3 monitors I have 2xVGA monitors and 1xHDMI I currently have the HDMI in the HDMI port 1 of the VGA's in the DVI port with an adapter and I was looking at connecting the 2nd VGA to the mini display port via the active adapter and a DVI to VGA converter.
I have tried this however the monitor is detected by the card but does not come off standby I am using Startech Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter which is similar to HIS Active Mini DisplayPort the only issue I see is that when using the VGA to DVI connector it has 4 pins around the horizontal pin that the active adapter does not have is this the issue? As the only active adapter I can find with these holes is one for a display port not mini display this one HIS Active DisplayPort
A lost and confused.
