I can get all monitors working with eyefinity as a huge extended display but this is annoying for maximizing windows and videos.

 

Only way I can get them all working as duplicate displays is using a DVI cable(with VGA adapter), a HDMI cable, and a mini displayport to dvi adapter and cable. On the screen resolution panel it will show 2 monitors as 1 and is unable to extend desktop.

 

Just want a 3rd display to function like a 2nd does. Help plz! :)

I think you need an active display adapter.

From what I can see Eyefinity isn't designed to do what you want to do.  Eyefinity is designed to make multiple monitors act like one.  Is there a way to disable Eyefinity?

You can give Ultramon a try and see if it will do what you want.  They have a free 30 day trial.

I installed Ultramon no luck. Here is a screen shot of the problem. You can see it is reading 2 monitors as 1. I am unable to separate them
