@lradler Welcome to HP Community!
Here's a few things you need to know when using an HP monitor with a Mac device:
HP monitors are not supported in a Mac environment. However, newer Macs use graphics with VESA modes and can display to most HP LCD monitors.
- To do this, connect the monitor to the Mac while the Mac is off, and then turn on the MAC.
- The monitor should operate at 60Hz.The INF and software for the HP monitor are for Microsoft Windows and cannot be run in a standard MAC OS environment.
