    Does Windows 10 support 10 monitors?

    I tried to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows 10 only finds 9 of the 10 monitors that all work fine with Windows 7. I have two Asus HD7970 video cards with 10 Samsung SyncMaster 930b monitors. I tried the latest AMD drivers.

    I am back on Windows 7 with the drivers that came with the video cards.

    Note: I tried the latest AMD drivers on Windows 7. It only finds the same 9 monitors?

    Seems like an AMD issue. Have you tried to contact them?

    T.V.,

    What do you do with 10 monitors? Not to mention where do you put them?

    I'd love to see a picture of the setup.

    Since you asked. Directory Opus File Manager on 3. Eudora email on 1. Opera Web browser on 2. CalendarScope on 1. Quicken on 1. OpenOffice Calc on 3. TaskManager, etc on 1. Todo list on 1. VLC music player on 1. KeePass password manager on 1.

    They don't all fit at once. So I just ordered an adapter cable to attach monitor 11. My video cards support 12.

    I hope AMD tells me how to fix the latest driver so I can use Windows 10.

    Sounds like an expensive option for multiple Windows.

    You think fruit & vegetables are cheap??


    FYI Counting the usage I get 15 monitors needed.

    However very impressive. I can't believe anybody but a DayTrader or video editor would require such a setup.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
