I'm running Archlinux 2012 - kernel 3.6.9-1-ARCH
When plugging two monitors (the third one is laptop's LCD) x server fails to start and shows "[drm:drm_crtc_helper_set_config] *ERROR* failed to set mode on [CRTC:7] on two monitors and turns off the third one.
I'm using intel core i7 3612qm (Ivy bridge) and according to inel Specifications at http://ark.intel.com/products/64901 , inel hd 4000 supports up to 3 monitors.
xorg server version lines :
X.Org X Server 1.13.0.902 (1.13.1 RC 2)
Release Date: 2012-12-06

Thanx in advance

xrandr please

Note that only 3 monitors are support by Ivybridge only if 2 of those are identical and running at the same resolution (such as DP+DP, HDMI+HDMI etc).

Thanx a lot for quick reply

I have two identical monitors, but one of them is connected through HDMI and the other is connected through VGA

You're going to be able to combine LVDS+HDMI+VGA, that's unsupported by the hw. Reporting the limitations better is something we are working on.
