Using Thunderbolt to connect to a Monitor Spectre x360 15t-bl100

HP Spectre x360 Convertible 15-bl1XX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to connect my HP Spectre x360 15t-bl100 to a monitor through the Thunderbolt/USB-C port.

I am not using a docking station.  I tried connecting with a cable that is USB-C at one end and DVI at the other.  It is not working.

I have seen so much conflicting information that I am confused.  Several places said to check that DP Alt Mode is enabled.  Where do I find this to check?

 

While my laptop has the Thunderbolt symbol next to one of the USB-C parts, I am not sure how to double check that Thunderbolt firmware and drivers are is really installed.  The update center says everything is up to date.

 

I am considering getting an Adapter from USB-C to VGA like this one, but it still says it requires DP Alt Mode.  So I really need to figure out how to confirm if that is working, or how to install/enable it.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

DisplayPort Alternate Mode on USB Type-C Connector Standard, I would suggest considering purchasing the USB-C video adapter.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Could you send me a link for a USB-C to DVI adapter that you would suggest for use with this laptop?

Thanks
