E2316H, states no DP Cable?

Hello Everyone,  I bought a new Monitor and I have tried multiple HDMI cables on two different computers but it still says No DP Cable.  I tried the monitor on a third computer and it worked fine.  Why won't it work on the computer I need it on?  Please let me know if this is a setting issue.  I have tried the Input source on Auto and also on DP setting.  The only other setting option is VGA.  I am using a new HDMI cable and this is for a second screen set-up.


Thank you

You lost me. Are you are saying that you are using this configuration =

computer HDMI out port --> HDMI to DP cable --> E2316H DP in port

If yes, that will not work. Computer HDMI cannot upconvert to a monitor DP in port.

* Go back to the top of the Monitors Forum
* Open FAQ Monitor (updated 4/24/18)
* Open "Computer VGA/DVI/HDMI out to Monitor DP/mDP in"

For my notes, send me via Private Message the Monitor service tag number.

Yes that is what I was trying to do.  Do you think a VGA to HDMI would work?  Or do you have a better solution.

THE VGA hook-up would be on the monitor and the HDMI as the out port.
