ok so right now i have two monitors connected with a dvi(computer) to my monitor(VGA) and the 2nd monitor is connected with hdmi's both ends. Now the third monitor I'm trying to connect it to my computer with an adapter(mini display port) to hdmi to my monitor. It says "unable to save display settings" I don't know why this won't work.

Because you need an active DP-adapter.

I don't know, what you have, but 'active' is the magic word: http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Plated-DisplayPort-...
