Hey guys I have a problem. I upgraded from a vga to dvi cable on my computer to a display-port to dvi cable. No matter what i do i can't get video to display. I changed the setting on the monitor to use the digital input.

The video card is a EVGA nVidia GeForce GTS 250 1 GB DDR3
The monitors are Thinkvision 2251p Wide.

I have a 4 screen setup.
And two video cards and they aren't displaying anything but the computer is on.

do 1 each normal connections to the video cards, restart... if they come up, add 1 monitor, check it, then add other. Use the display port last

Corroded I just tried that, when you choose analog there is no signal, but when you choose dp, its like it found something but doesnt display and then sometimes goes into power save mode.
I've restarted the computer, I reseated the video cards made sure everything was tight. I am going to try boot up with no cards. See below for the slideshow of the comp and setup.
The exact video card is

The cables are-- I was using VGA TO div and wasn't if i would see any benefit. I afraid maybe these cables suck?
