U2711 not able to use DisplayPort in PLP

Hell Forum Memebers.

I have a protrait-Landscape-protrait set up with 3 Dell UltraSharp Monitor (U2212hm-U2711-U2212hm).

When I connect the display port to the U2711 and the other two flanking monitors the U2711 doesnt work and says "DVI" not connected.

The only way I can get 3 monitors to work is
Right Monitor: Display Port
Middle Monitor: DVI-D
Left Monitor: DVI-I

GPU is EVGA GTX680: The rest of my system specs are on my signature.

1) Any heard of any issues like this?
2) Is there a Difference between DisplayPort vs DVI-D vs DVI-I?

I would hate for the U2711 not being used to its full potential.

Thanks in advance!

    1) I have a U2711 as well and I found if i didn't install the drivers for the monitor my Display Port would sometimes have some issues. Not sure if this is also causing your issues using a DVI-D cable.

    2) Id say start here for answers
