(Possibly) Broken Display Port

Thank you both for the help.

 

I borrowed a monitor and DP cable from work and tested it when I got home today. Turns out the DP on my monitor is broken so that sucks, anyways problem solved.

Hi, I was just wondering if anybody could give me a hand with this. My DP hasn't been working for a while now and I'm thinking of upgrading to a G-Sync Monitor so I want to find the cause of the problem before potentially wasting a load of my hard earned cash. It's either the Port on my monitor, the cable, or my GPU and I have no other devices around to test on. Are there any ways (other than unplugging from power etc) that I can work this out? My current monitor is a MSI Optix G27C2 (https://www.msi.com/Monitor/Optix-G27C2) and my PC is a Corsair One Pro 1080 (first model). It might be worth adding that the DP had worked originally, I just woke up one day and it didn't anymore.

 

Thanks to anybody who can help :)

I guess replace components cheapest to most expensive until it works? At least start by trying a different DP cable.

Does the GPU or monitor have more than 1 displayport? If yes, you can test the other ones. The cable might also be broken.
At what resolution and refresh rate do you run your display? maybe the cable can't handle the higher refresh rates.

What Graphics card do you have?
Since you want to get a G-Sync monitor i think you have Nvidia. AMD and Intel only support Free-Sync. Nvidia does support it too, when you have a 1000 series Nvidia Card or higher.

I have 2 DP on my GPU as its a GTX 1080 and I only have 1 port on my monitor. I used to run it on DP atc144hz 1080p but it just stopped working
