GTX 1070 - Not displaying through DP port
Hey, I've recently bought a new monitor (Dell S2716DG) and when I plug in my DP cable from the GPU into the monitor it doesn't display anything and just goes to sleep. The monitor works fine using HDMI and it detects there is a monitor connected using DP but it appears to be unable to use it. Has anyone had any issues with this and knows how I can fix it? I really want that silky smooth g-sync goodness!

Has anyone had any issues with this and knows how I can fix it? I really want that silky smooth g-sync goodness!

. G-Sync, I believe, is available through both HDMI and DP as the monitor does not say anything different. Are you sure the DP cable is securely in the port? Make sure it is Clicking in and requires the unlock button to remove. Make sure the 1070 is securely seated in the motherboard PCIe slot. This monitor also has a Driver listed at DELL for Windows 10. .

.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.

if its not clicked in, the hotplug pin won't signal the port to negotiate the screen link.
