Detailed description：Hey folks. Love my Zenbook UX431 FN which is about 2 years old. I need to hook up an external monitor for work now but the Dell monitor I bought only has VGA and DP inputs. My Zenbook has HDMI, 2 regular USB ports, and a USB C port. I've tried a number of adapters (HDMI to DP and USB C to DP) but neither work and the message I get on the monitor is that there is no DP signal from my laptop.
I read a thread from earlier this year (definitely should have checked here first...) where an ASUS rep says that the USB C port does not support external display. The HDMI to DP didn't work either so is there an option with the regular USB ports? Most importantly, did I buy a monitor that is just plain incompatible with a Zenbook because it has a DP input? (Note, I do not want to resort to the old school VGA cable!). Any suggestions/help would be HUGELY appreciated.
Keep on Zenning my friends.
