Monitor doesn't work

Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad T420s

OS: Fedora 25

Monitor: Dell 27" Flat Panel P2715Q

Connection: DP (laptop) to mDP (monitor)

xrandr output: see below

I'm a consistent i3 user (no DE), but I've even tried to get this monitor working with gnome. Nothing. The monitor (and Fedora, judging by the xrandr output) both seem to be "talking" to each other (for lack of a more educated comment). But there is no actual picture showing up on the 2nd monitor. The monitor says "there is no signal coming from your computer", but if the cable wasn't attached it would have a different error message.

Any thoughts on how to get this working? In gnome, I tried every variation of every resolution (multiple Hz settings as well), still nothing is working. Is there a driver I need to download or something?

Thank you in advance.

When you tried Gnome, did the display settings show the monitor being available? The xrandr output shows that the monitor has not been activated.

What happens if you run xrandr --output DP-1-1 --mode 1280x720?
