Monitor doesn't connect to omen x

HP Recommended
Envy 4K monitor
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I bought the envy 4K monitor and connected it to the graphics card HDMI port on my omen x, but when I started up the monitor it was using a gtx 950m and I have on my omen x a gtx 1080 ti, why doesn't it connect to my desktop graphics card? Please try to answer my question as fast as you can.

@Mhh14,

Would you please state the exact model number or product code for this Omen X machine.  There is a conflict in your statement,  as the GTX 950m is a laptop card, and the GTX 1080ti is a desktop card.

I'm trying to say that I want to know how to use the gtx 1080 ti instead of the 950 m on the monitor.

@Mhh14,

I have asked you to furnish (now a second time)  the exact model number of this desktop computer, so that specifications can be studied.  The monitor has no significant bearing (other than connections) in your question. But that might be your question.   What is the exact model model number of this monitor?   Does it have the proper connections?   If multiple HDMI ports, use the other port. Both the GTX 950 and GTC 1080 Ti are NVidia graphic cards that operate with UEFI vBIOS.  The GTX950 draws 90W, the GTX 1080ti draws 250W.  Most 1080ti have multiple video ports to match up to various monitors.  That is why you need to specify. 

In other words:  If you had a Ford Ranchero, it came with different engines. I could not recommend the correct spark plug without knowing whether it was a Cleveland or a Windsor block.

I do wish you a pleasant day.

@Mhh14,

The cube HP 900-100NE only has a single HDMI output for a monitor.  Now that is answered.

HP Envy 4k monitors can have more than 1 HDMI port.  Suggest you try a different HDMI port.  There is also a reset to default menu on pg 8.  I have used that process when those type of monitors have a fault.
