DisplayPort and Dell 2408WFP

I purchased monitor 2408WFP last evening. I use Sonic 9600 GT (with 174.74 Nvidia driver) and to connect to monitor I decided to use DisplayPort. After conect the cable to monitor and videoadapter I turn on computer. But monitor says me "No DisplayPort cable". What I did incorrectly? 

After changed connection to DVI I received a picture. All was good. But DisplayPort didn't work. Woman Sad

Give me please advice - what I can do?

Hi,

could be possible that you used a low-quality adapter cable. At least there are still problems/incompatibilities with this DP technology and the used cables to connect display with graphic outputs...

Hello, Did you change the input on the monitor via the menu settings on the front of the monitor?

Same problem with a Diamond HD5870 and 2408WFP.  No image via DispalyPort.  The monitor comes with a cable from Dell so I would hope it is good!  And here I was hoping to have a 3 monitor system.  Now I have to try to find another card and another monitor to isolate this mess....
