Running 3 monitors from graphics card using splitter "help"

I am trying to run 3 monitors from my graphics card, as listed in the specs, but it only picks up one of the monitors on the splitter the other just says no connection or signal. I am not even sure if it is possible to run 3 monitors?????

It picks up all three monitors

In the graphics it picks up all three monitors but only displays 2. When I click on properties for the third monitors it shows the onboard graphics where the two that display show the Graphics card. even they are connected through a splitter to the graphics card.......Article didn't really help but thanks

3rd monitor might need the correct input type selected? (the monitor level, nothing to do with windows, just to be clear)
