Default quadro nvs 420 only output on 2 screens not 4

Hi,
i have been fighting with my freshly installed ubuntu and quadro nvs 420 card.
attached 4 monitors, installed 256.53 of the linux drivers, but only output on 2 screens: 1 and 2 on the connector.

below my current xorg.conf (i tried a lot of settings there ).
one thing i noticed if is change DFP to DFP-0 and DFP-1 i get output on 2 screens but on 1 and 4!

any ideas, as this is driving me mad!!

many thanks

florus.
