I downloaded the driver form following links
the version should be 188.8.131.5201
I have tried windows 7 and windows 10 and get the same problem.
And the machine is fully update from windows update.
Thanks for the information,
Please make sure you are using a high-quality cable from the computer to the hub, the cable should be revision 1.2.
Please follow the recommendations I found on Dell's website: In order to enable Daisy chaining, the first monitor in the series (the monitor directly connected to the graphics card) must have DP 1.2 enabled in the monitor settings. Monitor number two in the chain must have DP 1.2 disabled.

thanks for your update.
My monitor don't have such option.
I am using following MST hub.
I think the mst hub is working fine since i can randomly choose 2 of them to work.
that mean i can use 1+2, 1+3, 2+3. Windows can recognize 3 monitor, but just don't allow me to use all of them.
So i think it should be driver issue rather than hardware issue.
Any idea for that?
I would say this is an adapter issue because the graphics controller and the driver detects three monitors but only two are working properly.
Please bear in mind that multimonitor features can be disabled by the computer manufacturer as part of their system designs, especially if you are using video adapters.
Sorry that maybe I mention something not clear enough.
All the monitors are working properly, just intel control panel don't allow me to use.
When i am using the mst hub, i connect 2 display port monitor and it works perfectly, that means hardware is working.
Then I connect the third monitor to the onbroad HDMI, 2 display port monitor are still working properly and Intel control panel can detect the HDMI monitor and allow me to choose. You can see the image from the top of is post.
I need to give up one of the display port for the HDMI. That why i post the question here not to Dell.
you said "Please bear in mind that multimonitor features can be disabled by the computer manufacturer as part of their system designs, especially if you are using video adapters."
As i know, if manufacturer disabled multimonitor, some of the monitor will be disabled before the windows start. That means you have no way to display content to the disabled monitor. But now the situation is different, i can still choose to display to any monitor I like, that means manufacturer didn't restrict anything. Please advice if i am wrong.
I tried the following adapter with same graphics controller
Please note that the adapter is active, requires power, that's maybe the problem here. You have a passive adapter and this is what I mentioned that your computer manufacturer may impose restrictions. In order to bypass those restrictions, you may need an active adapter.
The one I am using is Active adaptor. The USB is just for power, it can connect to iphone charger as well.
As I know there is no passive MST Hub in the market. Please advice if you can find it.
So any other reason that the control panel can only choose 2 monitor?
Does this still happen after trying driver version 4530?
Let me know your findings.
Sorry for late reply since i was on business trip.
the problem still the same.
I have do some research from intel website. I found following information and maybe it is the reason.
First row of the table, it is a Star(*) with HDMI. does it means there is problem with HDMI?
The "star" stands for a trademark. It does not mean a problem with HDMI.
I believe this problem is caused by couple of things I have mentioned previously, the adapter or the computer manufacturer.
