USB C to DVI Converter doesn't seem to work-Is there a possible way to get it to work?

I am running a Dell Optiplex 7060 with an Intel UHD Graphics 630. I am currently using the two display ports to run two monitors and recently bought a USB C to DVI adapter to run a third monitor for one of my team members. It says that it is plug-and-play, but i think it may not be compatible. Is there a workaround I can do to make this adapter work (like a driver I can install) or am I out of luck with this adapter.

If a DisplayPort (DP) channel is routed to this USB-C connector then you can indeed connect a third monitor via this USB-C port. The routing of a DisplayPort channel to a USB-C connector is an optional feature, however. Based upon the fact that Dell offers, as an option, support for a third DP port, I do not believe that a DP channel is routed to this USB-C connector. As a result, using this adapter is simply not going to work.

 

Your options are as follows:

 

  • You can purchase the optional third DP port adapter from Dell and have it installed into your PC.

 

 

 

Hope this helps,
