I'm currently having an issue getting my DisplayPort to work properly.
Right now I am currently using a Lenovo T520 Laptop, and a DisplayPort to VGA adapter.
My monitors are functional and so is the the adapter.
Can anyone give me some advice?

Oh sorry, I kinda worded it improperly.
Basically, my monitor that is hooked up to the DisplayPort doesn't recieve a proper signal.
My computer detects something but nothing is going through.

It is Fn+f7, it comes up with a prompt for the display settings.
Changing the output doesn't appear to make any difference.
I looked into the Intel display control panel, but can't find anything related to displayport, just some generic output settings.
For the record, I am using a T520, running Windows 7 Enterprise, Intel (R) Core(TM) i5 - 2520M CPU @ 2.5 GHz.

I think I'm on to something here.
I did a print-screen to see what was going on, and I came up with a screenshot with both monitors.
This must mean there is an output problem on the monitor.
However, the monitor is perfectly functioning (I have tested it several times).
Could the problem be the adapter?
It's an SVGA to DisplayPort (vice-versa).
Could it be affecting it?

Well I've tried all your suggestions as well as plenty of others I found.
I'm starting to think it's because of the DisplayPort to SVGA adapter.
I'm using a VGA to VGA (males) cable with an SVGA adapter, I believe that is the only logical explanation.
Thanks tripplec for all your support on this issue.
Time to get spend another 30-40$ on an adapter.
