so i've been using 2 monitors for a while, and as i was looking in my storage i found a third monitor but my video card only has 2 dvi and 2 hdmi outlets, i don't currently have and hdmi cord and was wondering if i could enable my motherboard graphics to use the third monitor?

Motherboard: MSI b75ma-p45
CPU: intel i3-3220
GPU: sapphire 7790 oc

That would be an option in your system BIOS. Check there for the option to enable on-board graphics.

I don't know. It may be an issue that you're already running dual monitors.

The monitor won't go on unless the drivers are installed. Windows doesn't load default drivers on secondary gpus. So after enabling igpu multi monitor in bios, you boot to windows and install the intel graphics driver.

Which means the igpu isn't enabled. What setting did you change in bios?

That's a category, when you click that, then you see the settings. You need to enable igd multi monitor. What other settings are in there?
