HP 24n G2 mointor active/inactive input port defautl inactive issue

HP Recommended
HP 24n G2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I just installed 2 monitors HP 24N G2, to replace my ZDisplays.

My configuration is build up with 3 workstations, with all the Quadro Nvidia video cards.

I connect:

PC1:    DVI out    to   DVI in  (monitor)

PC2:    Displayport out    to   DisplayPort in  (monitor)

PC3:    Displayport out    to   HDMI in  (monitor)  With a suitable adapter cable.


All PC screens can be displayed, so the connections are working.


My first problem:

If for example PC1 (DVI) is on and running. I see that screen.  Then I turn on PC2  (DP).

PC2 is running, but I can not select the screen with the "switch input" button on the monitor. It shows popup window

that shows:  DVI  Active,  DP inactive, HDMI inactive.  

Now I first have to go to the "Input Control" menu on the monitor,  turn the DP from inactive to active. Leave the menu.

Now I can select to PC2 the DP input and get that screen.

Every time I turn on PC2 I must activate DP through the menu...  This not very handy.

DP  hot plug detection is on, always active. Auto-Switch input is ON.


How or what can I do to let the HP 24n G2 immediatly connect DP.  using the switch Input button.


The same is happening with the HDMI input.
