I am trying to set up a multi display output for a work computer. It has one display port output from the internal graphics card (ATI ES1000 chipset).
 
I have connected the display port hub, but it is only duplicating the display onto the 3 outputs rather than identifying them as separate displays.
 
It is possible, given the age of the computer and the lack of a decent GPU, that it simply can't run that many screens. The only other tech spec I can provide at the moment is that it is operating on Windows 8.0 (I am currently away from the office where this computer is located).
 
Can anyone provide assistance on whether I can fix this? and maybe how?
 
Thanks.

From EVGA product page:(
Q: Will my graphics card support the use of a DP Hub?A: Most modern graphics cards with DisplayPort will work properly with the DP Hub. GeForce 600, 700, 900, TITAN and TITAN Z-Series cards with DisplayPort, Radeon HD 6000, 7000, and R7/9 Series cards, and Haswell-based Intel integrated graphics will work with the DP Hub.}Possible that your graphics chip doesn't support it?

You may be right in that the display port I have, because it is old, doesn't support MST so can't have multi monitors connected to it.

Did a little bit more reading and found that MST was only introduced with displayport 1.2 so it's very likely that the graphics card your using only has displayport 1.1
 
When I looked up your GPU it appears it was released in 2007 but displayport 1.2 wasn't released until 2009

Thanks. I may need to look at going to a USB3.0 to HDMI adapter.
