Windows 7 only sees one monitor when there are 6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a multiple monitor display of six monitors and while the system displays on all six monitors, it treats them all as one monitor. When I am in display settings it only sees one monitor.

    There is no hint of the other 5 monitors and the same screen shows up on all 6 monitors. How do I get it so that the other 5 are recognized as separate displays so I can arrange the desktop appropriately?

    Thank you for your help!

  • This is controlled by your video adapter's hardware driver and utility.  Each of the six monitors must be connected to six separate outputs from the video adapter.

    Ensure you have the most recent driver from the video manufacturer and consult the documentation for the adapter and the driver & utility.
