Hi, I just got a new Dell monitor, and set it all up and whatnot, but am not able to get all of my monitors working.  

I have my new Dell Ultrasharp, an older AOC monitor, and my Westinghouse TV.  All are 1080p.  The two monitors are hooked up via DVI and the TV is HDMI.  I am on Windows 8 64bit.  

When I go into screen resolution and tell it to extend all displays, an error message comes up that says "The display settings could not be saved.  Please try a different combination of display settings."

I don't know what I need to do to make it work (or if it can even work.  But I know people use 3 monitor setups all the time).  Can someone please help me out?

One of the displays must be connected via DisplayPort.  So what you need is an active DisplayPort to DVI adapter, which will cost in the neighborhood of $30.  Anything much cheaper is passive and will not work.
