Monitor blinks black screen using displayport connection

Hi there


I have a weird problem, when connecting my HP LA2405x to my laptop via the Displayport connection the screen keeps going black (presumably turing off) sometimes every few seconds, sometimes it will occur every couple of minutes. The black screen lasts for approx 2 seconds, but is very annoying.


The issue does not occur when using a passive Displayport to DVI adapter and connecting to the DVI input on the monitor.


The other hardware being used is as follows:


HP Elitebook 2760p running Windows 8 Enterprise (64Bit)

HP 2740 Ultra Slim Expansion base (providing the displayport output)


Hopefully someone can shed some light on a solution!
