Running 3x monitors off a Gigabyte 7950, BenQ xl2420t 120hz DL-DVI, benq rl2450h M-DP to DVI & acer g235h HDMI to DVI.
The DP adapter is(http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...5c8e9617d8e1b4).
When I plug it in it comes up with 'Displayport link failure, the system has detected a link failure and cannot set requested res/refreshrate etcetc'. Windows detects it as a non pnp monitor, CCC names it 'fake' and it says everything isn't supported. Been googling for ages and have found no fix, I've tried everything I possible can think of/find. Reinstalling gpu drivers, switching DVI cables, trying it on a diff monitor, etcetc.
I've tried 13.4, 12.8, 12.10 & 13.8 < in that order. When I don't have drivers installed the monitor lets me go up to 1600*1200, since updating to 13.8 CCC now shows it as no display detected instead of fake, and no longer does displayport link failure thing come up.
I had it running at 1080p for a minute then I must have bumped the cable when moving my PC into place and haven't been able to get it to display at 1080p again.
I'm completely stumped, this thing is stupid, sorry if I missed out any details, really annoyed due to this :s
big hugz 4 anyone who fixes this.

EDIT:
okay i was fiddling around with CCC, and in HDTV support, i went into it and ticked 1080p60, and added it to a custom hdtv format thingy, applied that and it said it could dmg my screen, and im like ...yolo, anyway now its running 1080p, and even detects my screens model n stuff properly
