Displayport Connectivity Issues

By ryanmcdonald27 ·
Hello,

I have a multiple-monitor, multiple pc setup. Lots going on. My issue is that I have a 32" odyssey g7, and a 49" odyssey g9 and am unable to get displayport connections to work with my laptop that has no displayport.

Displayport to HDMI cable: g7 does not recognize anything is connected to displayport

Displayport to HDMI adapter to HDMI cable: g7 does not recognize anything is connected to displayport

Displayport to USB-C: this works with my laptop and g7; however, i am using the USB-C port on my laptop to connect an adapter hub. This does not work with my laptop and g9. But when I connect my g9 with my laptop with this cord, it recognizes something is attached, but it does not display it.

Display port to USB-C through adapter hub: g7 does not recognize anything is connected.

Thanks for any help!

Ryan

I've heard such before.

The owner had to live with it till they got a DP equipped laptop.
Another went out and got a monitor with both HDMI and DP.
Others live with the limitations.

Not all adapters work is why you try them but get them with return priviledges.
Also, I don't expect DP to work through USB hubs. Something I've never seen work.
