Describe your issue:

  • My third monitor (connected through DVI - DVI) is not displaying any images. However if I make a screenshot in Windows, it does show up. It also shows up as connected in my Display Settings. As shown in the attached photo it is just a blank screen, however and the monitor does not detect any input.
  • When I put my setup in Eyefinity mode, it does correctly set up the monitor and it does show imaging. If I turn Eyefinity back off, it still works.
  • This occurs every time I restart my computer or update the AMD video drivers.
