Typically an ATI video card can only span two monitors unless it specifically states that it is an Eyefinity capable (or supported) card. The HD 4350 is a budget card and it is unlikely to support Eyefinity.

Eyefinity requires the use of the DisplayPort. Your HD 4350 does not have DisplayPort so it definitely does not support Eyefinity.

You either need to trade it in your HD 4350 for a HD 5xxx series card w/ Eyefinity or install another video card to use that 3rd monitor (PCI-e card if you have another slot, or a PCI card).

Why do cards that cannot support more than two monitors have three connections? Simple... options.

4350 isn't new enough. Only the 5xxx and 6xxx cards support eyefinity.

I'm curious as to way you see 4 monitors in your display settings. You have some onboard video I assume?
