Is it an active display port? I have no first hand experience with eyefinity, but I heard that passive display ports do not work with Eyefinity.

Well an active display port adapter has a power source or processes the signal whereas a passive display port adapter is just a socket change.

Maybe you can take a photo of what you have and we'll see.  Also, do you know if it is the monitor connected to the display port that is not being detected and not a problem with your other connections?

This is the Sapphire display port for example for Eyefinity:

Straight from ATIs website

"Driver version 8.66 (Catalyst 9.10) or above is required to support ATI Eyefinity technology and to enable a third display you require one panel with a DisplayPort connector "

Update your drivers.

Well you never actually specified... is the computer with no display the one connected via display port?

If so then can you display on that screen by itself?

Check all your cables too.

And read your manual... you might have to have the displays connected to certain connectors.

Hello Shem,

It looks like that is a passive adapter unfortunately.
