I have bought a Samsung 24" LED monitor and plugged HDMI-HDMI directly through my docking station with success. I was happy with it so bought a second monitor (same) and using an HDMI to displayport adapter to plug in the only other available jack on the docking station. Black screen. I cannot even get into the menu. The computer "sees" the monitor.
Having two screens I have tested reversing the cables, and the monitor HDMI-HDMI always works and the HDMI-Displayport gives a black screen.
I have tested the HDMI-DisplayPort jack with another LG monitor I have and it works perfectly. Is this a configuration issue that I just cannot see?
I am requesting help on this. I do not want to have to return the monitor because I can't use it with my docking station.
