Try a DisplayPort to HDMI cable as suggested. That is what I use for an old Dell Desktop that has VGA and DisplayPort and it works fine. Both DisplayPort to DVD or DisplayPort to HDMI work fine.

Does you laptop have miniDisplayPort or full DisplayPort?

The laptop has the full DisplayPort. The monitor connector is the mini port.

Both speak DisplayPort? Just get a DisplayPort to MiniDisplayPort cable.

Don't waste your time with this OP, who refuses to make it clear just what his connection options are, or what connection methods he has tried.
