DisplayPort - Dell U3011 - I can't get it to work

Hello,
i have this Dell U3011 which goes up to 2560x1600.
On the other side, i don't have a graphic card but i have the integrated graphic card in my i7-3770K which gives the chance to reach that resolution but only through DisplayPort.
Problem is i cannot get the DisplayPort to work. If i connect the DP cable the screen goes black with the following image floating around http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/u3011/it/ug/GRAPHICS/OSD_No%20DVI-D1%20cable.gif
I will probably end up buying a graphic card so i will not need DisplayPort, but if i could i would avoid doing so.
Anyone?

  1. Did you change the input on the monitor itself to Displayport?

    Aouhh... how is that done my friend?
  3. It should be the third button down http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/MONITORS/U3011/en/ug/operate.htm

    Click it while your computer is on and it should give you a picture.

    You are the man. Thank you so much.
  5. I'm learning that this monitor, the Dell U3011 has problems with the DisplayPort that just stops working after the PC goes to sleep. I've had 2 replacements sent from Dell and it is still a problem, so 3 monitors have the same issue. I have confirmed it is a problem with the monitors because the same cable works on different monitors, other PC's, etc. I've found info all over online about this problem but never a real solution to it. Its a bummer that Dell knows about this and isn't putting out a fix. They were quick to send out a replacement for me so it must be common, although they said it isn't something they have seen...which is not true because I found it all over their forums. I love the monitor, but I have to buy a $120 adapter to get full resolution when the DisplayPort doesn't work since my FirePro V8800 only has 4 DisplayPort plugins.

    I've been trying to get a monitor that works from Dell for 17 days now. I paid for the extended warranty because they said they send replacements in 1 business day. Now its been 17 days with no fix yet. I'm getting my own version of Dell Hell right now.
