Re: Dell Optiplex 7010: 3 Monitor Setup Help

qman_au,

Do you know what the model # of the adapters you bought?   we're looking to use them but hte supplied DP has the same issue.  Would any active display port cable work?  I saw some Sapphire active dp cables but made no mention of eyefinity.

Hi yellowsub456,

Any Active DP->DVI adapter should work. The ones I got are the Active DP->Single Link DVI-D Adapters, link here: http://bit.ly/NqwyA7

As i posted earlier, dell also sells one, but it is a 3rd party product. You can also do a search for "active displayport to dvi adapter" on amazon. they are around US$25+

Re: Dell Optiplex 7010: 3 Monitor Setup Help

Hi Qman, I have the right connectors (I think), meaning Intel Graphics Control Panel lets me choose/use any two individually but not all three simultaneously. Meaning I can use the monitor and Digital Display 1 OR Monitor and Digital Display 2 OR DD1 and DD2 in any combination I like, but not Monitor + Digital Display 1 + Digital Display 2
Any ideas what is causing the issue???????? Thanks for your help!

Does anyone know if you can hook up 3 monitors while using the AMD Radeon HD 7470? I'd love to be able to use a third VGA monitor in my setup.

Thanks!

It seems DVI needs to have active adapters as the OP said.

My workaround was to use the Display Port to VGA adapters.

All 3 monitors work now.

Cheers!

RE: Dell Optiplex 7010: 3 Monitor Setup Help

Hi, I am using two DP with DVI Connections and one Vga, and still can't get the third monitor going. I can switch between the 3, but cannot display all three at the same time. What do you mean with "OP"? (It seems DVI needs to have active adapters as the OP said.)???

 

Regards, Zayas

Hi

I have problem with this -  7010 sff. 

I have 2x active DP to DVI and 1x  normal vga and  I can use only two monitors, not three at one time Smiley Sad

Why?

RE: Dell Optiplex 7010: 3 Monitor Setup Help

Which embedded graphic processor does your motherboard have? I'm having the same issue but my motherboard has the Intel HD 2500 Graphics embedded into it. I'm thinking that's why I can't get it to work. Dell has an article on how to configure the OptiPlex xx10 and xx20 series system with three monitors but with the HD 4000 Graphics. I can not find any articles for the HD 2500 Graphics.

www.dell.com/.../en

Two of my monitors have the DisplayPort so I am just using a DisplayPort cable for each monitor which connects directly to the computer. My third monitor is connected with the VGA cable. I have read that people were successful but everyone one of them had the embedded HD 4000 Graphics.
