the dvi and hdmi ports are shared with one of the mini display ports, you can only output to two at a time so you will need a second mini display port adapter.
so dvi or hdmi and 2 mini displayport for 3 monitors.
It sounds like your active adapter may actually be passive. What card do you have and what is the model of the adapter that you are using?
