The DisplayPort of the GA-A75-UD4H(rev. 1.0) motherboard is not working properly with a newly purchased HP Elite L2201x Displayport-only monitor.  The new monitor is displayport only.  

There is signal, and occasionally the monitor shows a black-and-white display at 640x480, but will not display anything else (including BIOS bootup screens - it is blank.)  So I can run the system with dual monitors, extend the desktop to the DP monitor and it's a greyscale at 640x480. 

Both the monitor and DP cable will work on other computers (I'm using it now). The VGA and DVI of this motherboard also work correctly.  Even if I reboot the system and use the HP Elite L2201x by itself (no other monitors connected) I don't see a picture.

Gigabyte was not helpful, and offered to replace the motherboard.  But before I send the board away for three weeks and take the working system out of commission - what's the chance it's the APU that's at fault?

I just built the system - everything is new and uses default (automatic) settings in the BIOS.  There is no overclocking.  Except for the displayport issue, the system works flawlessly.

You answered your own question. Gigabyte has already offered to replace the board. Which is all you can do. You won't know if its the display outs or the APU. I wouldn't place blame on the APU because its sending out a video signal. If it were not I'd blame the APU. This point all you can do is test each one to see what the issue is.

Because regardless of driver settings you should always be getting post screens of some sort.
