mini display port problem


Recommended Posts

hey everyone! 

i got my vive cosmos recently, but  couldnt make it work because of the display connection. My laptop (asus n552vw) doesn't have displayport but a minidisplay instead, so i bought a displayport to minidisplayport converter. İt still not working. While installing, i put cables on and gives the error "put the cable to the port on the graphics card". I tried it my friends laptop and it worked fine with it. 

Isnt my laptop capable to work with or what? help please!

ps: here is my laptops e-manual: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/N552VX/0409_E10589_N552VX_C.pdf

  • The MiniDisplayport on the laptop must be physically wired to the dedicated GPU and not just the integrated graphics. Support for this varies widely and is highly model specific. Some laptop models don't wire the mDP to the GPU as a cost savings measure.
    • You may need to contact your manufacturer to get confirmation of how your laptop is wired up.
    • You can get a rough check of your port mapping via the PhysX page of the Nvidia. If your port is supported, it should show up as a full sized Displayport Icon under your GPu
  • I can't speak to your specific adapter without more info. Not all adapters/cables work. The key requirements are that it must support 4K @ 60Hz, must support Display 1.2+, and must be able to transmit ~20Gbps of bandwidth.
  • Here is an example of a cable known to work: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0777RKTJB/ref=twister_B077GCMQXJ.
    • This is our recommended cable since it's known to work and is under $10.
