List of displaysHere’s a list of some displays that will work:
- Check the firmware version installed on your monitor (go to your monitor manufacturer’s website to learn how to find your monitor’s firmware version).
- You can fix some DisplayPort video issues by disabling “MST mode” or “DP1.2 mode” on your monitor. Check the owner’s manual that came with your monitor to learn how. Disabling “MST mode” or “DP1.2 mode” on your monitor will cause display daisy-chaining to stop working.
