M920z: Issue using it in monitor mode thru DP input

2021-02-06, 6:11 AM

I've Got a thinkpad P51s and Now I have connected it Using a thinkcentre m920z Having an HDMI into displayport cable, with the intention to Utilize the thinkcentre as an external display.  I cannot find any directions how to switch the thinkcentre to some"monitor only" mode. now i am facing issue in banithani (jewelry shopping site),  The laptop doesn't detect it as an external display.  Wireless connection between both machines doesn't work : I did Project->Connect to wireless display and also the thinkcentre was found correctly.  I picked it and the thinkcentre popped up a window to permit the connection.  I picked Allow Consistently but then I got an empty"Devide Access List" where I could not take any actions.  On the notebook side after a while I got"Couldn't connect". thanks

Be aware that the vast majority of DP / HDMI cables are DP to HDMI, and all are one direction only.  Since you are going HDMI to DP, you have to have one of those specific active adapters (USB cable provides the required power), such as this Club 3D adapter.  True 4K @ 60Hz adapters are also available.
