Nice, glad updating your motherboard drivers and removing all the old drivers has seemed to help.

So I updated my drivers and that seemed to work, then i left for a couple weeks. Im back now and im still having the same problems. The only other thing i can think of causing this problem is that for my third monitor, its connected to Mini Displayport through a DVI converter. Could that adapter be causing the monitor to disconnect?

Could be, converters in the past had issues during the DVI-VGA days, heck, could be a broken wire inside the converter/cable for all we know.

Do you get the same problems running 1 or 2 screens? Make try some simple things, use 1 screen only for a week, see if the same problem persists. If it doesn't, add the 2nd, then if thats fine add the 3rd. Would tell you if something was wrong with the connections, and its an easy thing to do.
