I recently installed Fedora aside my Windows installation. All things going well, except for one thing. My third screen is not recognized properly. I have 2 screens from BENQ of the same type connected via DVI on 1920x1080 and a third monitor (Also BENQ but other type) connected via mini DP (with a mini DP to HDMI, because it does only have HDMI) but it only goes to 1024x768. Which should be 1920x1020. The video card i have is an AMD Radeon HD 7970. I tried installing the AMD drivers, no luck.

I tried adding a new mode to xrandr and set it for my screen. But when i try to use it i get the "xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed" error.

I also tried adding the existing modes from my other screens to this one. Same error.

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-amdgpu.x86_64

Nothing helped thus far. Is it because of the mini-DP to HDMI? I need to do it this way because the configuration guide of my card said the correct way to connect is to have 2 on DVI and a third (and fourth) on the mini display port. It works on windows correctly. As stubborn as i am, when i installed my third screen a while back, of course i tried connecting it directly on the HDMI. But that didnt work. I really needed to connect it on the mini DP.

Any help is appreciated! If i need to show more system diagnostics or specs, i am willing to provide them!
