Asus is one of the best-known names in technology. If you have an Asus monitor, what can you do to connect it to your computer? Sometimes, you may need to troubleshoot.
A common reason why an Asus monitor does not connect to a laptop, PC, or Mac is that the cable was not connected properly. In order for it to send a signal, it must be seated into the port on both the monitor and the computer securely. The cable may also be outdated.
On some types of cables, there may be pins that make the connection. If that is the case, those pins could have gotten bent or otherwise damaged. They may even be missing.
If one of the pins is not functioning properly, it may keep the connection from being made properly. In addition, missing pins mean that there will be a missing signal, so the cable needs to be replaced.
If you are using HDMI, it is important that you use the latest technology. HDMI 2.1 is one of the best options you have available for connecting an Asus monitor. It is even better than DisplayPort cables.
Even so, you need to be cautious that your HDMI cable has not become loose or has somehow disconnected from one of the ports. If that is the case, the signal will not be strong enough or may not exist.
In this article, we will consider some of the specific reasons why you may be having problems connecting your Asus monitor. We will also show you the setup for various devices.
Asus Monitor Not Connecting To Laptop/Mac/PC
Before we begin to look at some specifics, there are some things that can be done in almost every case to troubleshoot a problem. These issues will work, regardless of whether you are dealing with a laptop, Mac, or PC.
Input Mode – On your Asus monitor, there are likely a variety of inputs, some that are different and others that may be the same. You may need to select the proper input port by pressing the menu button on the Asus monitor and going through the options.
Cable Check – If you are having problems with one of the cables, you can troubleshoot it by using another cable of the same type. This will let you know if the cable was a problem or if it may be another issue, such as software, firmware, or perhaps even a damaged port.
Electrical – If you are having any electrical problems, then you are not going to get the connection between the computer and your new Asus monitor. Here are some things to check.
1. Receptacle – Although receptacles are well known for working, there are times when you may have an issue. Even half of the receptacle may be faulty. Try plugging in a lamp and if it works, the receptacle works.
2. Overload – We tend to have a lot of electronic items in the area where we are plugging in our new Asus monitor. In many cases, we may be using a multi-port plug that connects everything into a single receptacle.
This may seem convenient but it is actually problematic. We might be overloading the circuit. Try connecting your Asus monitor to a receptacle in another circuit, even if you have to use an extension cord.
3. Circuit Breaker – If you are having electrical problems and everything is off, it may be a tripped circuit breaker. Look in the panel box and check for a breaker that is out of line with the others. If you have a tripped circuit breaker, you can turn it off and turn it back on.
If you continue to trip circuit breakers, that means that the breaker itself is overloaded. They can only handle so much and often, we tend to put too much stress on them. Otherwise, it could be a problem with the circuit breaker itself.
Asus monitors are plug-and-play compatible. That makes them very easy to set up. If you have problems, consider the following specific scenarios:
Asus Monitor Not Connecting To Laptop
Are you having problems connecting your Asus monitor to a laptop? It may be a problem with the cable.
When your Asus monitor is not connecting to your laptop, unplug the cable and inspect it. If the cable is damaged or any of the pins are bent, replace it. Otherwise, you can try using a different cable of the same type or using one of the other connection options.
Believe it or not, another reason why you may be having problems is that the Asus monitor is not powered on properly. This could be due to a faulty power cord.
Always use the power cord that was included with the Asus monitor. If you must replace it, make sure you get one that is suitable for the task.
Asus Monitor Not Connecting To HP Laptop
We trust our HP laptops to get the job at hand done. What can you do when your HP is not connecting to your Asus monitor?
At times, you may need to set up the new Asus monitor by entering the presentation display mode (Win key + P). After entering this mode, you should select the setup that is appropriate for your computer and monitor.
If you are trying to connect multiple monitors to your HP laptop, you may need to reestablish the proper display drivers. Look at the display driver for your graphics card and check for any updates.
Asus Monitor Not Connecting To Dell Laptop
When an Asus monitor is not connecting to a Dell laptop, you may need to take the manual approach.
Your Dell laptop may require that you enable the manual detection of your new Asus monitor. Use the presentation display mode (Win key + P) or press FN + F8 to check the video display output.
If those options do not work, you may need to disable your graphics driver. The GPU can be disabled in BIOS, and that will force your computer to run the new monitor from software rather than hardware.
Once your new Asus monitor is recognized by your Dell laptop, you can reestablish dGPU in the system BIOS.
