GPU only outputting a signal after reconnecting cable

Good day,

I have a problem concerning my Sapphire RX 480. Like half the time I boot up my computer, the GPU will not output any signal until i pull out the DP-Cable and plug it in again. Then it works flawlessly. I have tried the other DP-Output on the primary GPU, however the problem still occurs. So my guess is that the error lies within the software.

I do not have the lastest drivers because the lastest drivers are often messing up my fps during gaming (because of crossfire, I have 2 480's)

Is the driver to blame, or something else? I could try swapping the videocards and try the outputs of the other one.

What should I do?

Thank you
