How to Enable 4k Xbox One X

HP Recommended
HP Envy 27" Black 4K LED

Good morning I recently purchased the HP Envy 27' Black 4k LED. I set it up and cannot figure how to enable 4k on the display. It is stuck in 1080P. I tried flipping through the menu and cannot find a way to turn it to 4k. Can anyone help? I bought this to use with my xbox One X. Do I need a special HDMI cord? The xbox settings say that the monitor is able to play 4k but I need to change the settings on the Monitor itself.

Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

This is a great place to get support, find answers to your technical queries.


To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

Did you try with a different cable?


As monitors are plug and play devices and should work without any issues when connected to a computer. 

As the monitor is working, I assume that the issue is with the adapter you're using, therefore I suggest you try a different adapter and see if it helps.


I also recommend you to try the monitor on a different computer with the same adapter and see whether you get 4K resolution on a different device. 


Below mentioned are the supported cable for 4K resolution.

  •  HDMI 2.0
  •  HDMI 1.4
  •  USB-C (power delivery up to 60 W)
  •  Display Port 1.2

Keep me posted, how it goes!
