2 and configure daisy chaining with the Dell u24 14 h monitor. This will allow us to run two monitors with only one of them plugged into the computer first off DisplayPort 1.2. Is required to support daisy chaining, it will not work with older versions by default. This particular monitor ships with DisplayPort 1.1 a enabled. So we need to change this first, if you do not enable DisplayPort, 1.2 and just plug the second monitor in both monitors will only run in mirror mode and show the same image simply press any of the left foremost buttons on the front of the display to Bring up the options and select the menu icon from here, go down to display settings and then select the right arrow button to modify them, go down to DisplayPort 1.2 and select it with the right arrow button. Simply change it from disabled to enabled when you do this, you'll get a warning asking you to check that your graphics card supports DisplayPort, multi stream, transport, aka, daisy, chaining I'm, using a 5 year old, AMD 6990 graphics card, and it has DisplayPort 1.2 support. So it's been around for a while now you'll be advised that if it doesn't support DisplayPort 1.2 – and you enable this setting, you may get a monitor with a blank screen. If you do end up with a blank screen, just highlight either DisplayPort or mini DisplayPort. In the input sources and then hold the tick button for approximately 8 seconds, you'll now be able to disable display point 1.

2. If required, we only need to enable DisplayPort 1.2 on the monitor that's connected to the graphics card. The secondary monitor does not need this enabled. My second screen still has it: disabled and it's been working fine I'm using the included cable that came with my monitor a DisplayPort 2 mini DisplayPort cable. First, I plug the display port end of the cable into the primary monitors. Displayport output, the other mini DisplayPort end, goes into my secondary monitors, mini DisplayPort. For me, the monitor was instantly recognized. However, you may need to go into the display settings of your particular operating system in order to configure how it should display. Unfortunately, I don't have any additional monitors to test setting this up with a third screen. I'Ve also tried to get this to work with the Thunderbolt ports on my macbook pro, as this apparently supports DisplayPort 1.2 as well. However, both of the external monitors mirror each other and act as a single display from my research. This seems to be an operating system, specific issue. People have reported that it works just fine if they boot into Windows. I'Ve got too many display boards available. So I can always just run one monitor off each that's. All there is to it. You should now be able to enable DisplayPort, 1.2 and setup daisy chaining with dual monitors.
