What Display port to DVI adapter are you using, unless its an active or a passive active adapter the signal will not go through. If you a really cheap one (some systems come with it) then its a passive adapter which will not work.

Example of passive active adapter NCIX.com - Buy Accell Mini Display Port to DVI Single Link Active Eyefinity Adapter Retail - Accell - B087B-006B - in Canada

AMD Eyefinity Validated Dongles

Above is the link that AMD/ATI certified for Eyefinity, just make sure it is ACTIVE not passive...buy one of those for your Displayport connection and you're golden.
