Legion 7i and USB-C to DisplayPort not working

2020-11-10, 3:30 AM

I have the Legion 7i and a Samsung Odyssey G7 that I hoped to connect with a DisplayPort cable so that I could play with G-Sync, but there is no DisplayPort output on the laptop. I then bought myself a USB-C to DisplayPort cable because the specifications said that the laptop supported USB-C (DisplayPort™ 1.4). The problem though is that the monitor doesn't pick up a signal. The laptop recognizes that it is connected to a monitor and can move across the screen onto the monitor, but the monitor stays blacked out. I don't see what I can do to fix this, but if you guys could help me, that would be great.

Hi ksuden,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Some Monitors have their own settings of detection. I'd suggest checking the manual for the Monitor in question to see if you need to switch the cable detection (if it has several) to the correct port. Also make sure you are extending or duplicating your laptop screen to the device.  Since the laptop is picking it up and you say you can move the mouse over to it, then this does not seem to be a laptop issue, but rather a Monitor problem.

 

Regards

Thank you for your response. I looked through the Monitor manual but it says nothing about cable detection. I'll try to find a solution and if I do, I'll post what I did.

Did anyone ever solve this problem? I'm having the exact same issue, to the T. Same computer, same monitor, same general frustration.
