7970 Matrix Platinum triple screen issue

Hello!
My first post to this forum, so forgive me for any mistakes 🙂

I am having troubles connecting all of my three screens to my graphics card, or rather i am having trouble getting windows to show on all three screens at once. It will show on two screens at once, but not three. once i try extending or mirroring over to screen nr. 3, it tells me i have to apply to do anything more, and it won't save. it simply says "unable to save display settings".

The screens are hooked up as follows:

Screen nr 1: DVI
Screen nr 2: Displayport to HDMI cable.
Screen nr 3: DVI

Anyone know what i need to do to use all three at once?

I really feel like i am missing something really obvious:(

What sort of adapter are you using to go from Displayport to HDMI and which Displayport are you using ?
Also what resolution are you running the monitors at ?

There is no adapter, just the cable that has DP in one end, and HDMI in the other. All monitors are running at 1920 x 1200 resolution.

You need an active display port adapter, your cable is a passive.

I'm using this one
