I want to connect my laptop to a DVI screen and it only has a DisplayPort (and VGA but I do want to get the full resolution) port.
So I need an adapter.
Can I use a passive adapter or do I need to buy an active?
As far as I know the DisplayPort on the left side complies to the V1.1a standard.
This means that the DispplayPort is compatible with DVI and HDMI standards so you can use an DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI adapter.
