Third Monitor unable to save display settings.

Hello, I recently have been trying to use triple monitors, but for some reason when I try to use the 3rd monitor I get "unable to save display settings" whenever I click apply

I have an AMD Radeon HD 7800 and am connecting using one DVI, One HDMI and one third is display port that has a dvi to vga connector connected to it, and the vga going from the connector to my monitor, the displayport is the one that won''t work.

Display Port DP Male to DVI Female Connector Adapter - Black + Golden - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

This is the specific displayport I have, could there be a problem with it specifically, or are there other things I could do to test?
