Problem connecting my XPS15 laptop to my u2412m monitor via displayport

Hi Peoples,

I just received my new Dell UltraSharp u2412m monitor!

Now I try to connect my Dell XPS15 laptop (via its mini displayport connection) to my new monitor via a mini displayport to displayport cable.

Sadly it doesnt seem to connect and the monitor instantly goes into Power Save Mode...

What am I doing wrong here? Is this possible/compatible in the first place?

Thanks very much in advance!


Ps. the monitor instantly works with an old laptop via vga connection...Plug and play...
