I have a system that I built last year. It has a Gigabyte H67MA-UD2H-B3 motherboard. I am running Windows 8. This motherboard has 1-VGA, 1-DVI, 1-HDMI and a DisplayPort. How can I get three monitors to work. I have three Acer 24inch wide screen monitors. The monitors have 1-VGA and 1-HDMI. I have the three hooked up but I can only get two to work. Currently I have the HDMI and DVI working. If I disconnect any one of those then the VGA works. Once I plug in the one I disconnected the VGA goes out and the other starts. I have not tried the displayport since I did not know my motherboard had the capability and I do not have a cable for it. I just ordered a cable so I will try it. So what am I missing? How can I get this to work? Thanks
