4 monitors but only two working with mouse

I setup 4 displays using the DELL UltraSharp 1708FP 17" LCD MONITOR and got 3 graphics adapter http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06c/A10-51210-332469-332462-332469-3913299-3913300-3913303.html for 3 monitors and connected 1 monitor direct to computer.

I run windows 7 professional on core 2 duo 2.33GHz and 8GB RAM PC.

So what is going on? what is the problem?

The 4 monitors all come on and shows my wallpaper but the mouse can only go to 2 monitors at a time and the 2 can switch around but only 2 works at a time.
What am i doing wrong? Why do i have this problem?

    I see Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family GMA 3100

    Also 3 of the monitors says digital and the 1 connected directly says analog, but i doubt that can be the problem since all monitors come on and the 2 that the mouse can go to can switch from 1 and 2 or 3 and 4

    Unbumped for the second time, the third will end in closure.

    Don't...

    So what do you think the problem is?
  4. So you are basically saying that only 2 screens will work at the same time? Then which screens? Can you make two screens with an USB adapter on at the same time?

    Also what you mean by "Unbumped for the second time, the third will end in closure.", when anyone post an comment, it bumps it automatically...

    Hope it helps! :)

    The USB adapter is said to allow up to 6 monitors so it should work for 4.

    Yes what i mean is if i turn on all 4 monitors they all come on and looks like they are all working but the mouse can only go to 2 of them. At any one time the 2 monitors that are usable changes. like 1 and 2 can be working and then it just changes to 3 and 4 working sometimes and i don't even know how and why it changes.

    also have you checked the website to know more about the USB graphics adapter? http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06c/A10-51210-332469-332462-332469-3913299-3913300-3913303.html

    Also just to let you know...i have 3 of those USB graphic adapters connected to 3 monitors each and then the 4th monitor connected directly to PC.
  7. Try to move your mouse to the other side of the main screen to see if you can access the two other screens...
