    2-part problem...

    I recently bought a new monitor and whenever I connect its USB-C cable to the PC tower, I get a notification in the blue windows sidebar saying that the Display connection may be limited. and sends me here to learn more:

    New Monitor and USB woes [​IMG]

    Although the notification mentions DisplayPort, the page is all about USB-C so I'm thinking that it's an issue with the USB. But FWIW, the monitor's display is powered by a DisplayPort cable connected to Nvidia GTX760. I've set the monitor to use DP 1.2 since that is the highest this old card supports. So 1st issue is this notification popping up everytime the USB-C cable is connected from the monitor to the PC.

    I should also mention that 1 of the USB ports that it is supposed to power is completely dead and the other will only detect/power half the things I tested - dongles work, webcam works, a novelty light works. Smartphone no, hard drives no, LED desk lamp no.

    Seems like my unit is faulty but I was wondering about the notification message appearing.. is that normal?

    I also wanted to ask about what the purpose is of a USB-C cable when it states that it has power delivery 65w - I understand that a USB-C is just a physical format and that the specs of the ports is what matters. The USB-C on my computer is USB3.1 gen2 but on the monitor I don't know. The monitor has a built-in USB hub of 2 USB 3.0 ports. Is the 65W PD stated in the specs supposed to mean that it provides 65W of power upward to the built-in USB hub when connected to the PC?

    Because curiously, if I take that same cable and instead of connecting it to the PC, I connect it to my smartphone, it starts charging it - so it seems like its able to power my phone straight from the monitor even if the monitor is no longer connected to the PC. It also launches "Samsung DeX" mode, whatever that is and displays "HDMI Connected). (but Windows doesn't see it as a device because the monitor is not connected to the PC at this point).

    Would love some assistance on both issues...

    New monitor suggestions, £200 budget

    So I am getting (hopefully) £200 of amazon vouchers from work for Christmaqs and have decided I want to get a new monitor, my current is a 23" Samsung Syncmaster, I believe it's a TN panel and the res is 2048x1152. It really is starting to get on my nerves as the coloring is not very natural so I am thinking an IPS panel would probably be a lot better quality wise so I am open to some suggestions as I really don't have a clue when it comes to monitors.

    Things to note:

    • I do not want to go smaller than 24"
    • Would prefer 27" if possible for the budget
    • If not then perhaps 24" 120hz
    • I currently run 2048x 1152 though 1920 x 1080 is fine
    • Must come in at or around £200-£250 absolute max
