Just wondering if anyone has any further suggestions on this one. So far for me it is running maybe 98% on about 10-12 upgrades on machines from 6 or 7 years old to brand new. A new cable fixed it. I find the whole thing very confusing if I'm honest! Another key thing to remember is that the cables have the same connectors on both ends. Here's an explanation from Microsoft which may help you in tracking down your precise cause. If I do end up looking at a new laptop, what output do I need to get the max resolution from the monitor? Neither did uninstalling the generic pnp monitor so the computer would reinstall the displays drivers. Results: - the Apple brand, the one which I had thought was broken, connected 90% of the time - the Rocketfish brand, 80% of the attempts - the Dell brand was successful 90% of the time.
I even installed parallels 4. Then, the projector failed to detect a signal from the laptop. Check the settings in there to make sure you aren't set for a single display only, and if it will allow for more. Or is it time for a new laptop? So, they have the right power capacity to speed up charging. I hope we're not alone as this has been an issue for a while for me.
Any feedback is really appreciated. I never updated the video driver but could have been some other who needed a restore. There may well be a fix in there. Anyhow also tried using Google to see what others have and seems like Displayport signal issues are rather common. The greater weight of the Dell is chiefly due not to its greater length, but stronger construction: the wire is thicker, the convertor box is larger, and everything feels more robust. It is worth noting that manually updating your drivers can be time-consuming and risky. I checked device manager its not even detecting the 3rd screen.
As you mentioned maybe there some incompatibility between that adapter and Win10. . The StarTech adapter is awesome because it has built-in hardware for doing the conversion for you without any extra software or drivers. Turn off the computer and either unplug it from the power source or turn off via the Power Supply's power switch. I got initially the same problem with a MacBook pro, and finally returned the laptop to apple, 'cause i work with a second monitor on a regular basis on a desk or with projectors. The connection between the adaptor and the laptop via the Mini DisplayPort is the culprit.
DisplayPort not detecting when waking from sleep Some people have reported that the monitor doesn't power up when you wake your computer from sleep. I posted on the Lonovo forum at the same time as posting here but so far no one has responded. I'm now in contact with people in Apple Italy and we'll try to sort out the issue. At this pace Im going to reinstall windows and go back to windows 8. My perfomance index under Bootcamp is around 5,3. Have you left it all plugged in and rebooted? You will get notifications which you can use to determine how to resolve the problem.
Problem also persists through resets and formats. This is a huge problem to using bootcamp, and I really need to get this to work. Thanks for the replies guys. Hi again Thanks very much for your help, this appears to have solved the problem. Maybe I need a new part or there's something I just don't know? If you still believe that the brand of the adaptor makes a difference, here are my observations on the three brands, and some measurements I took to objectify my impressions.
I'm not sure what the importance of this is but I do know that my laptop, a Lenovo ThinkPad T530, has two different video cards- one manufactured by Intel and the other by Nvidia. The tool will start to identify issues with your hardware and devices, attempting to repair them. It is worth noting that this was designed, certified, and released as an industry-standard connector by the members of the organization. I cannot imagine why you would do otherwise. Anyway, thanks for the help! I cannot write their driver Code. There could be something in the bios that needs tweaking perhaps, maybe a display output priority. I have contacted all vendors involved and no one can help.
In case it helps, the full model number is M58, machine type 6258. Even the pros do this. It wasn't working just now. This means that you would not have a hard time figuring out which end goes where. I mean did you check it in both ways? That is how it was meant to be connected. Hi there, still no solution and still investigating. I had no problems for a year, maybe twenty PowerPoint presentations.
I am running dual boot with Windows 8. Might also see if this webpage helps. If it is yet the problem persists, try using a different cable. In this case, you can try using a different computer, or you can try plugging your device into an external power source. Back from vacation, you've probably already figured it out, but going to the nVidia site will get you the latest version. Thanks, Daniel I'm having the same problem.
It's obvious once you know. Refer to your monitor manual for more details. I know that the displayport does work, because if you go into display settings and manually activate the 2nd display, then it wakes. However, the former has a distinct oval shape. Thank you for these ideas, I will be trying them later this afternoon. In most cases, the problems are caused by problems with the hardware or software. You can update them to give your unit a fresh set of drivers.
