Intel HD Graphics 4400 on UHD monitor?

Hello I have a laptop running on Intel HD Graphics 4400 and am trying to use a spare external Samsung UHD monitor (U28D590D). From what I've read it seems that the Intel HD 4400 does not support UHD/4K but I'm wondering why I cant run the display at 1080p since my Xbox One (Original version without 4K) works fine and displays 1080p. Whenever I connect my laptop to the monitor the display just goes black. So is there anyway I can run this monitor on my laptop and force a lower resolution?

 

Things to note

  • Laptop is not the problem as it can connect to several other 1080p monitors I have
  • Cable is not an issue as well as I've tested the cable to be working with different devices

Okay I have the DxDiag report saved as a .txt file but unsure on how to send it as I don't see anywhere I can insert a file.

 

As for the the connection to the monitor I'm using a HDMI and recently did some further testing and I can connect my laptop via HDMI cable to my 4K TV and it works fine at 2160p at 30Hz. I've also tried to connect another laptop to the monitor and it is experience the same issue of screen just going black.

 

I can't produce the graphics report with the monitor plugged in because the computer isn't detecting the monitor at all yet I can still use it on a device like my Xbox One and it still outputs a display of 1080p.
