U2415, HP Pavilion All-in-One Desktop, connection help
I am trying to connect my Dell UltraSharp U2415 as an external monitor to my new HP Pavilion All-in-One-24-x035qe. The cable that came with the Dell monitor is a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort. The HP desktop has neither of those ports. Attached are pics of the ports on the HP desktop, and below is link to Dell monitor user manual that shows its ports which are also copied and pasted below. How do I connect this Dell U2415 as an external monitor to this HP Pavilion - exactly what kind of cable do I need - and what do I need to do?? Thanks
HDMI (MHL) port connector. Connect your MHL devices with MHL cable.
DisplayPort in connector. Connect your computer with DP cable.
Mini DisplayPort in connector. Connect your computer with Mini-DP to DP cable.
DisplayPort out (MST) connector. DisplayPort output for MST (Multi-Stream Transport) capable monitor. DP 1.1 monitor can only be connected as the last monitor in the MST chain. To enable MST, refer to instruction on section "Connecting the monitor for DP Multi-Stream Transport (MST) function".
