HDMI (laptop) to Display Port (Monitor)

ZBook G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I have a Zbook G3 which has and HDMI port to connect to an external display. The monitors I have are EliteDisplay E241i which have display port connectors (as well as RGA and DVI, but I'd rather not use those). Can you please point me in the direction of a good connector that will allow me to display my Zbook on the above monitors?

Thanks in advance,

Phil

Hi,

 

Except for VGA, from HDMI to DisplayPort or DVI is digital signals and you should get same result on your current monitor. Any standard HDMI to DVI or HDMI to DP cable will do the job.

 

Regards.

Hi

 

Thanks for the response.

 

I bought a HDMI/Display port cable, and that does not work - the laptop does not pick up the fact that its connected to a monitor.

 

There seems to be lots of DP to 'whatever' type connectors, but reading around this, it seems a specific HDMI to DP adapter is required.

 

Got to say though, HP mixing and matching HDMI and DP between laptops and monitors is not great!

 

Regards
