Monitor HP 2009m - Using as a 3rd Monitor Display but it will not work with new Surface

HP Recommended
Surface Pro
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have 2 monitors connected to my Surface Pro Display "3" is a HP 2009m (I know old-but the setup works with my husbands Surface) - I cannot get the display to work with my new Surface Pro. If I go to Advance Display Settings - Display 3 - it lists the it as HP 2009 - and shows the following says "Display 3 isn't active" how do I fix?
