Unable to get Crossover 1440P Monitor to work with HDMI-DVI adapter

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a Crossover 27QD-LED monitor. Have had it for a few years now and it works great. It's hooked to my main PC GTX 580 via DVI-D Dual Link cable (though the monitor does support DVI-I Dual Link as well).

I just got a new laptop for work and it has an HDMI video out. The Crossover monitor only has a single DVI input, no HDMI. So I bought an HDMI to DVI adapter (HDMI to DVI-D Dual Link). For some reason, the monitor doesn't like it and acts like nothing is connected.

I also have an Asus monitor with both DVI and HDMI inputs. This monitor works great with the laptop, whether I connect the laptop to it via HDMI or using the HDMI to DVI convert and plugging the HDMI end into the monitor.

So I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to get the Crossover monitor working using the DVI to HDMI adapter. Clearly the adapter works if it works fine with the other monitor. What about the Crossover would prevent the same thing from working with it?

Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure that monitor doesn't have a built in scaler, similar to the other Korean displays. The video card in the laptop likely can't send a proper signal to the monitor.

Thanks for the reply. Is there any kind of "active adapter" that would convert + scale it properly?

I'd look at the ebay store pages of the korean displays. They may have an adapter that will help you out. I personally do not know that this device exists, however.

I'm afraid you're out of luck. I was going to suggest a dual-link DVI-to-USB adapter that uses DisplayLink technology. But no DVI-to-USB adapter or hub is dual-link. That's a sad fact confirmed by my years of hunting for such a device and this discussion thread at superuser.com.

Most of these cables actually don't do what they are supposed to. Only a few of these adapters actually work, but only with specific items. I tried to use one of these in the past but they required a profession GPU and a specific projector for it to actually work. What you may need is a converter, which is extremely hard to find one that has good quality for less than $80

Thanks for the replies all. I decided not to spend another $400 or so on another monitor just to get the HDMI so my options were to either get a second smaller, cheaper 1080p monitor to dedicate to my laptop, or, just use my main PC and Remote Desktop into the laptop. This way I can do everything from my main keyboard/mouse/monitor in an ideal ergonomic position. I have yet to get the Remote Desktop to connect but that's a whole other story rolleyes.gif

Actually, dual-link DVI is supported by one USB docking station: The ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock (0A33970), It's also called the ThinkPad USB 3.0 Docking Station. I own it but I've never used it for dual DVI. Only one of its two DVI ports will support dual-link. And if you use the dual-link port for dual-link, the single-link port is disabled.

Don't confuse this model with the Lenovo ThinkPad Basic USB 3.0 Dock (4X10A06687); that model's DVI ports are both single-link.
