Later occured some weird state.

When i plugged same 3 displays over some time, then windows just started blicking alternately over all displays. I dont know what happened. Then i stopped using that adapter and many months was working with only two displays.
Internal (same one), and second LCD 1920x1080. I'm still feeling deficit for productivity with not enough displays. Maybe i'll try it again.
