    Hi Guys,

    So im having a problem here..

    I bought a new projector for my setup, my Graphics card has two DVI ports, one HDMI and one Displayport.

    Up until now i've been using the HDMI port for my monitor but I now need to change his and use the Displayport for my monitor which also has a Displayport as the Projector will use up the only HDMI port.

    However, when I connect the Monitor with the Displayport cable I get an error saying: displayport link failure.

    I Dont know what the problem is, I've tried using another brand new cable and it still doesn't work. I updated all the relevant drivers. Not sure if it is the Monitor at fault or my graphics card...

    Here are the Specs to my Rig:

    CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor CPU
    Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z ATX AM3+ Motherboard
    Memory: G.Skill Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2400
    Memory Storage: Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 280X 3GB DirectCU II Video Card Case:
    Cooler Master Storm Trooper ATX Full Tower Case Power Supply:
    Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer
    Monitor: AOC I2369VM 60Hz 23.0" Monitor

    Would really appreciate if anyone can help me out with this!
