Problems connecting to Windows 10 / iMac.
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2019
I was pretty excited to have this new monitor replace my old 2nd monitor until I tried to make it work. Set it up, plugged it in. connected the VGA cable to the computer (27" iMac running Windows 10 in Bootcamp): nothing except "No signal."
Hmm, strange I thought. So, just in case it was a bad VGA cable out of the box, I swapped the one that came with the monitor for one I knew worked with my computer. Sorry Charlie, no luck with that either.
Try 3: Let's see what happens with an HDMI to Thunderbolt cable. Forget it, it's Chinatown.
Try 4: Let's boot into the MacOS side of things (High Sierra) and see what happens there? Maybe it's a Win10 quirk. Sucker.
Try 5: Let's upgrade to the latest MacOS (Mojave) and see if THAT fixes the problem. Houston we have a problem. Oh, and on top of that the upgrade to Mojave roached the Windows partition so I have that going for me too.
In all cases, the desktop doesn't even detect that the monitor is plugged in.
While I've been trying to rebuild my desktop, I plugged it into my Macbook running Win7 and lo and be hold there is light! Indeed, the monitor works fine which means that (a) the cable is functional, (b) the monitor is functional, and (c) there's no real reason for it not to work as an external monitor for my iMac.
Gonna give it one more go and then back in the box and back to Amazon it goes.
