3 monitors with a EliteBook 8570p using a HP Advanced Docking Station 230W

Been trying to hook up my elitebook to 3 monitors on my HP Advanced Docking Station 230W model A7E36AA

 

Got 2 monitors on DVI and 1 on Displayport, however it can only detect 2 screens!

 

Checked online and the 8570p should be able to support 3 ?

 

Anyone know what is causing this?

Although 3 video outs are supported, you can not have all digital ports. The advanced dock has 2 dvi and 2 dp ports + vga port. Each dvi port is shared with a dp port so you can use either dvi or dp of the ports that are stack together. your 3rd display can be internal panel or use of the vga port. Or you can also use one of HP's usb-video adapters to get 3rd or more videos connected
