Daisy Chaining Monitors (models: u2414h / u2417h)

  1. First, in 2414, you must enable DP 1.2 in the menu. (In 2417 it’s enabled by default)
  2. Plug-in the mini display port (small rounded square) to the 2nd monitor and run it to the first monitor
  3. make sure you plug it into the OUT display port (on the 2417, the out has a small orange-red cap in it, remove and plug it in there)
  4. on the first monitor, go to the monitor’s menu and enable MST, this will make Windows recognize the 2nd monitor as separate
  5. the first monitor flickered, so unplug the power, wait 5 seconds and replug
  6. adjust your display settings accordingly for extended desktop, etc.
