Yeah, I could try that... Though both units have the displayport standard, which is superior to the hmdi - dvi connection. And I just bought a quite expensive displayport cable.
Im getting really agitated Dell is giving me NO help at all in this...
Try using a different connection--hdmi would be best if the laptop has that. You can use a hdmi to dvi cable--same technology and those work. Those can be bought for less than $10.
I just received my new Dell UltraSharp u2412m monitor!
Now I try to connect my Dell XPS15 laptop (via its mini displayport connection) to my new monitor via a mini displayport to displayport cable.
Sadly it doesnt seem to connect and the monitor instantly goes into Power Save Mode...
What am I doing wrong here? Is this possible/compatible in the first place?
Thanks very much in advance!
Ps. the monitor instantly works with an old laptop via vga connection...Plug and play...
