HD 6850, how to run 4 monitors

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to extend my desktop onto 4 monitors with the HD 6850 card. I can get 3 monitors to work, but not the 4th.

 

My OS is 64-bit Windows 10, and the monitors are all brand new HP VH240a (I've verified they all work)

 

Here's how the 4 connections on the graphics card are set up:

 

1.) Display Port -- Active DisplayPort to HDMI 4K Adapter >> HDMI cable to monitor

2.) HDMI port -- HDMI cable to monitor

3.) DVI port -- DVI to HDMI adapter >> HDMI cable to monitor

4.) DVI port -- DVI to HDMI adapter >> HDMI cable to monitor

 

Of the above connections, I can get #1, #2, and *either* #3 or #4 to work, but not *both* #3 and #4.

 

Any tips or advice? Thanks for your time!
