My wife has a HP laptop and has been using en external monitor for years (VGA connection).

I purchased a Viewsonic monitor as a replacement.

My connection options are displayport or USB. That's all the laptop has, in addition to VGA.

Neither connection sends a signal to the monitor.

Should this be plug-and-play or are there settings I need to tweak?

I tried rebooting and there is still no signal to the monitor.

Thanks in advance as I am heading out of town for the weekend.

A DisplayPort to HDMI cable ending up working.
