Thinkpad T480 with Thinkpad Basic dock won't recognize Samsung SyncMaster 214T monitor



Perhaps you'd be willing to comment on a hardware issue.

I also recently replaced my wife's desktop PC (which I built!) with a Thinkpad T480 that we planned to link with a Thinkpad Basic docking Station (L440?). She has an old, Samsung SyncMaster 214T monitor that required (per our Lenovo salesperson) a DVI ot Display Port cable, which I purchased and connected. Of course, the docked laptop won't recognize the presence of the SuncMaster monitor suggesting the cable may be a problem. It's a standard DisplayPort Male to DVI-I Male Adapter Cable (6 ft). Any thoughts?
