Default DisplayPort to HDMI Cable Question...

I've got a Lenovo M82 or 83 and using a DP to HDMI cable to plug into my Dell U3515w.



issues is, when I jump to that connector in the OSD, it says no signal detected. the PC is on and I've tried both DP out connectors on the back and no-go.



could there be a resolution limitation and it can't go above 1080p or something?

isn't that needed for old tech...and that's only for HDMI/DVI to DisplayPort I think...

From what I understand, intel early boards with HDMI2.0 used the DP connection and actively converted it to HDMI 2.0 (some kind of chip).

I have so many issues trying to get Lenovo tiny's to display on Viewsonic monitors at my office for several years. It may or may not connect or it will flash on and off constantly. It has been driving me absolutely crazy. I have resorted to using DP to VGA or DP to DVI adapters to the monitors from London Drugs and Staples. My I.T. guys can't explain it but it works for my employees and now I keep a few of these adapters around just in case.

well, dunno what the issue was but I gave in and pulled my old 24" Samsung out, dusted it off and it's working perfectly...though I'm using a DP to DP cable now, so no HDMI converting. :P
