AMD HD 6850 not working with DisplayPort cable

I have just purchased a Dell Ultrasharp U2715H LCD monitor to replace an existing Dell Ultrasharp U2412M LED monitor, which had been connected via DVI to my HD 6850 card on a Win 7 64 bit PC.

 

Although I can operate the new monitor in HDMI mode (which restricts the display to 2048 x 1152), when I try to connect via the supplied DP cable it responds 'No DP Cable' and remains blank and unresponsive.

 

I thought this would be a simple plug-n-play operation to upgrade to the new monitor but I can't get it to work in DisaplayPort mode, which would give me a 2550 x 1440 display.

 

Please let me know where I've gone wrong.

 

Many thanks.
