Hi. I've read some other threads on Eyefinity with desktop cards but I cannot get it working on my notebook.

I have an HP 8460w and I'm trying to connect two external monitors, one on displayport and the other VGA. No matter what I set my 'Virtual' line to be in xorg.conf I cannot get simultaneous output on LVDS, DFP1, and CRT1. xrandr tries and fails with a crtc 2 error, amdcccle tries and fails with a message about inadequate memory (baloney) or just not being possible.

So why should this be? I can't afford the docking station yet but my understanding with this graphics chip and laptop is that 4 external simultaneous displays should be possible in addition to the laptop screen. Could it have something to do with the VGA port?

Any help is appreciated.
