You need to be using active adaptors not passive.

Re: FIREPRO W600 5th - Monitor is not able to add

Thanks for your valuable Reply

, it means , i can use 4 PASSIVE and 2 ACTIVE ADAPTORS

like now I have 2 VGA , 2 HDMI adaptors  , Can I use 2 more minidp to hdmi adaptors ( active ) to install the FRESH MONITORS . ?

OR I have to buy 6 active adaptors again ,

this is very confusing as I already have bought EXTRA 3 vga and 2 hdmi adaptors from the market ( but now i came to know that these are passive adaptors )

so I just wanted to be sure this time that If i buy the active adaptors so my money will not be wasted and I will be able to use them .

Waiting for update

Thanks once again

You need 3 active adaptors and 2 passive if you want to run 5 displays.
