GUEST Tech: Monitor Cable (28) RE: Tech: Monitor Cable 16 May 19


Lenovo T410S uses a "Display Port" - compatible with HDMI, electrically, protocol-ly, but hardware-ly not. No Audio, even though there is provision for it in the "standard", see Wiki. I remember looking and finding a converter cable, but would have had to route audio from the 3.5mm Jack. So gave up.

It is square, looks a bit like USB A - particulalry if you don't look down the hole. And a USB plug goes in about 1/3. For that matter a USB goes into an RJ45 all the way and if you don't notice the vertical play, it can give you grief of minutes till you actually look at the back of the Laptop and check which hole it is in, and why it always goes in, up or down!
Because you inevitable do it by feel, that's why!
