T580 with 40AH dock -- can I use three external displays?

I'm using the 40AH ("Pro") dock.  I tried connecting a third monitor to a HDMI to DVI adapter, and plugging that into the side HDMI port.  The laptop doesn't see this third display at all.  Nothing there.  

 

I'm trying to determine if this is supported and maybe it's just that my adapter is bad.

Update:

I just took the laptop off the dock and connected this monitor with the HDMI-DVI adapter and it worked that way. So I'm thinking that this dock (or laptop) just does not allow three external displays this way.

Is there some other way? Can I use a USB adapter?
