Problems getting DVI port working with Dell D630 with docking xorg nvidia ubuntu


I have dual monitors working currently, but I'm having problems getting my 3rd monitor working on my D630. In windows you can run all 3 screens if you have it in the docking station. It gives you 2 ports one vga one dvi.

nvidia-settings sees both monitors, but no matter what I try I only get the laptop screen and the vga monitor working.

Is this even possible, as I have not found too much online about it? Most just have the dual monitors.

If so would someone mind posting their xorg for me to see? or would anyone be able to point some links out that could help that would be great. Here is my xorg config for reference.
