    I do believe, if you were to follow the speck 100%. A DVI to VGA adapter is not supposed to be able to plug into a DVI-D connector. Those 4 pins are supposed to be plugged with no holes. It's just cheaper and easier to solder two DVI-I connectors to the video card. You only have to stock the one part in inventory.

    Just noticed this on the right hand side of the page I linked too. It would have simplified things if I had seen it sooner.

    Hi there
    This article should solve a bit of confusion

    The complete guide to multiple monitors | TechRadar

    A decent multi-output graphics card or multiple graphics cards will be the best bet. Remember though driving multiple monitors at Hi rez will probably need a bigger PSU in your computer - decent Hi rez graphics consumes a lot of power.

    I'm looking for a 6 screen setup -- not for gaming but for a Stock Trading (Day Trading) system

    Cheers

    I have done what that guide said, and I still got nothing, no pulse. When I did do that "NVidia Surround" Thing and the 57**x3*** (Can't remember at the moment) but then when I clicked it BAM! All screens were black and said "No Signal" on the Polaroid and Sanyo, and "Mode Not Supported" on the Samsung. All of them were all set at 1920x1080. Samsung --> DVI-I to VGA, Polaroid & Sanyo --> HDMI.

    I still don't know why it won't work I really don't want to buy 3 monitors, because then I would have just wasted $150 on the Sanyo. But I use it as my TV in my room now. I haven't done this Triple Monitor Setup in about a month, but I would still like to know how to get them working. I will record a video this weekend showing you guys what is happening.

    That's encouraging. There must be a limit on the maximum surround resolution and your over it?

    I did read (somewhere, dang it forgot the site) that there was a specific resolution for the 1920x1080 resolution and I had it set to the right one. I will get you guys screenshots and a video this weekend so you guys have a more detailed experience.
