GTX 1050 and Nvidia Surround Issue
Hi, I have a GTX 1050, and I am attempting to set up triple monitors with Nvidia Surround. My issue is that any time I click "Enable Surround" 2 of 3 monitors lose their signal, and the third just goes black. My video card has 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, and 1 Display Port. FWIW, the monitor connected to display port is the only one that does not lose signal, and it is the one that keeps signal and just goes black. Any help on why this may be happening? I end up having to manually shut down the computer, disconnecting the HDMI monitor and DVI monitor, and rebooting. Once running, I can connect both monitors and they will show up fine and run in triple screen, but will not run in Surround. I did some more reading on the Nvidia site, and it says that for a 1050 to run surround it needs 3 Display port OR 3 HDMI connections. Is this accurate, and could this be the issue?

Which model# 1050? "Some" manufacturers/models have a hardware link between the HDMI and DVI-D output (ie: share the same connection point). In this situation only ONE of the two outputs can be used at a time. Which sounds like the situation in your case.
