  1. Wow, that sounds like a lot of hassle. Anyway, I've reinstalled FSX clean in landscape mode (portrait was a little hard on the eyes) - guess what, tried the original fourth monitor using the displayport apapter, and it worked first time. I think I messed too much with the config file re all the monitors. Thanks for all your help.
  2. Is this possible with a GTX770 - http://www.web-cyb.org/images/lcds/27inCinema_19inAsus-x2_a.jpg I can't see anywhere in the control panel that let's you flip two side monitors to portrait, keeping the centre one in landscape.
  3. If I bought another monitor to make it four of the same, can you actually use a 4-screen surround display using the displayport for the 4th monitor? All i can find on here is posts of 3+1, as per the origin of this post? Have tried using the three in portrait mode and it looks so much better, just want that extra bit of width that a 4th monitor would provide.
  4. To be honest, I've not even used the radio panel yet, in fact getting all the Saitek to work at once is proving a pain, I think all these USB connections causes too many conflicts of power - I've read the best way to have that many is to use a separate PC and link them over - no way hose. Having solved the 4th monitor issue, I am now tempted to flip the monitors over to portrait and have 4 in a row thus seeing more of the cockpit and doing away with some of the Saitek stuff - it's all for show really, and have wasted too many hours trying to get them all operable. Spad drivers didn't help much. The BIP and the switch panel don't really do much anyway, but would like to keep the autopilot one as it's quite good, as are the instrument ones. I'm sure the radio panel will be useful if I ever get to that stage.
  5. Thanks for all your help. Quite satisfied by all my efforts, never even knew these things existed until recently, but with the help of various forums, much problem solving etc I'm ready to go.
  6. Tried using a VGA to DVI adapter to connect the fourth monitor to the motherboard - nothing happens, just a blank screen. So I quit this route and went back to the display port on the graphics card using a 15" HDMI TV with a direct HDMI to displayport lead - and that works a treat. it's a bit bulkier than the other monitor, but having tried everything I just want to practice some flying now!
  7. The 3 monitors are one-surround, configured in nVidias control panel. My 4th monitor does not have a DVI connection, so I can't do DVI to displayPort, so I'm gonna try to connect it to the motherboard's DVi connection via another apapter, ie vga to motherboard DVI, and see if that works. Thanks.
  8. This is the link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261348687859&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:GB:3160 The DisplayPort monitor did work, the two either side of it decided to play up instead.
  9. OK, tried deleting the device entries in csg file - no change. Tried a different monitor using the display port - no change. Cannot work out if the adapter is active or passive. Ebay Seller hasn't replied. Tried using the display port for one of the 3 main monitors - just went all wrong, screens were swapped over etc, changing over the cables didn't work, so back to original setup. I was using the 4th monitor nicely for a while using the vga port on the motherboard, and this still works but only when you connect it after Windows has loaded. Otherwise when all 4 monitors are connected at boot, I just get 4 blank screens - why would this be? Thanks.
  10. Thanks for all your help, will have a play around with it later and let you know how I get on.
  11. Hi guys, happy to have found this forum. With the help of this forum I have built a 4-screen setup for FSX, overcome many issues but the current one really stumps me. I'm using an nVidia GTX770 video card. Have setup three 21" screens no problem. Adding a fourth to the display port causes FSX to display four blank screens, but it has loaded as I have sound. I've setup the fourth screen correctly in the nVidia control panel, and all looks well until I load FSX, then the above happens. I was able to use the fourth screen using the vga socket on the motherboard without any problems, moving panels etc in windowed mode to create a great setup. But after a while for some reason Windows decided to not want to load any more this way, so I've reverted back to the display port on the graphics card which I initially gave up on but now really want to find an answer. I am using an Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core (3.4GHz, 6MB Cache, overclockable 4.4GHz+) Socket 1150 with 8mb ram. Any help appreciated, thanks.
