From what I can find, displayport is still WIP -- at least on Intel
chip, not sure what the AMD and nVidia closed drivers support. I'm
assuming you're running an Intel X4500 since that is what the dell
website told me it had (though it may be customizable, who knows).

It looks like the Intel 2.4 branch has Display Port register
information, but it is non-functional at the moment.
