    Hello, I recently have been trying to use triple monitors, but for some reason when I try to use the 3rd monitor I get "unable to save display settings" whenever I click apply

    I have an AMD Radeon HD 7800 and am connecting using one DVI, One HDMI and one third is display port that has a dvi to vga connector connected to it, and the vga going from the connector to my monitor, the displayport is the one that won''t work.

    This is the specific displayport I have, could there be a problem with it specifically, or are there other things I could do to test?

    Have you tried setting up just that one monitor with the port converter on its own to see if it works?

    the wire you use for that is probably wrong .it has to be a dvi-I (single link) not a dvi-d (single link)

    the d version doesn't have the wire to connect to a vga
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

    sorry I don't like to provide full link ,just add the usuall http and you ll be good !

    ps:also not sure if that adaptor can do dvi-I
    also the screen for the vga screen ? I would put the writing and none demanding stuff like chat ,web etc
