I have three monitors connected to my PC. Years ago I believe I installed a video card that enabled me to do this, to have three monitors working. I just rebooted my computer and one of the monitors is not being recognized. Please advise. Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your question, I look forward to assisting you today. Is this a new setup you are trying or did you have three connected that are not now working?

the two questions you've asked are answered in my initial question. i've had three monitors working for years. I just rebooted and only two work. it's an amd hd 6700 card. the two monitors that are working are coming out of the Standard Display Port Connector and one of the DVI connectors. i'll switch cables right now to make sure that the monitor is working properly.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I switched cable on two of them and now they're all working. Thanks for you time.
Computer technician: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago
Glad to hear they are all working. Have a nice day!
