ATI Eyefinity with 3 monitors and Color scheme problem solved (kindof)

Some time ago I bought ATI 5750 Eyefinity edition to use with 3 computer displays. The problem was, that it is impossible to use 3rd monitor with ‘passive DisplayPort to DVI cable’.

The solution for me was to use second video card, which led to another problem / error – The color scheme has been changed to Windows 7 Basic.

Yesterday I solved both problems by buying a new HP ZR24w 24-inch LCD Monitor with 3 inputs – VGA, DVI-D and DisplayPort and 5 USB 2.0. It is an expensive monitor (~600 USD including VAT), but monitor has nice ‘Pivot rotation’ feature and Native resolution 1920 x 1200.

So my new setup:

  • LG 37″ LCD TV Full HD – using hdmi – hdmi cable
  • HP 24″ LCD 1200×1920 – using DisplayPort – DisplayPort cable
  • Samsung 19″ LCD – using DVI – VGA (D-sub) – VGA cable

Old setup:

New setup:

My old Samsung 22″ LCD 1680×1050 goes to 2 monitor setup – 46 inch Samsung LE46B55 + Samsung 22″. This setup runs on two EVGA GTX470 cards in SLI mode.
