The connections on the card with what I am connecting to:

 

Display Port - Active Dongle - VGA

DVI-I - Passive Dongle - VGA

DVI-D - DVI-D

HDMI - HDMI

 

Tried several different connections and only can get three to work.

 

Display Port - Active Dongle - VGA

DVI-I - Passive Dongle - VGA

DVI-D - DVI-D

Works

 

and

 

Display Port - Active Dongle - VGA

DVI-I - Passive Dongle - VGA

HDMI - HDMI

Works

 

Watched the video @ https://youtu.be/Jf0X0lNFmgw

This support video is from 2012, I found it some what informative but please make a new one with more information, please.

According to the video this card must have a internal Active Dongle for one of the connections on the card if it actually does support four monitors. 

 

Please let me know what I'm missing.

 

Thanks!
