I just purchased a new computer with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor, an AMD radeon RX 580 video card and Windows 10. I currently use a Samsung UE590 28" 4k monitor on my old computer and wanted to connect it to the new computer, along with another montior.

After lots of effort( and sending back the GPU for a replacement), it seems as though my new computer wont connect to the monitor via Display Port, but will through HDMI. Whenever I plug in the monitor to the new computer with DisplayPort, the screen goes black and flashes on and off. When I have a different monitor attached to the new computer and then attach the Samsung monitor, the Samsung monitor flashes on and off and the other monitor loses all its icons and becomes unusable(but doesnt go black).

I am pretty sure its not a hardware issue, since I replaced the GPU and the monitor and cables seem to work with the other computer/monitor. Id like to get the new computer to work with Display Port so that I can attach multiple monitors to it, and I only have one HDMI port.

Thanks for looking and for your help,
Jason
