Question asked by martinm on Feb 26, 2018

AMD R9 290

 

Desktop

 

W10 64b

 

Adrenalin 18.2.3 (updated it today after deleting the previous one completely)

 

The 1st monitor is a Samsung C32F391 running at 1080p 60hz through HDMI to HDMI

The 2nd one is a Gateway HD2201 running at 1050p 60hz through HDMI to DVI with an active adapter

The 3rd is an I-INC Hanns.G iH232 running at 1080p HDMI to DVI-I with an active adapter

 

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H rev 1.1 AM inc. F18i 1/6/2014

 

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3701 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

 

Corsair TX650W Gold

 

16GB DDR3

 

When I try to extend the 3rd display it shows this message: nBfgE6Q.png

 

Now here is where it gets interesting; it works perfectly when I run Linux, I don't even have to set up anything as soon as I installed my distro and installed the drivers from AMD it worked like a charm. So why does it not work in the most widely used OS in the entire world?
