Mini display port GPU

This might all seem silly but i have a laptop with an Nvidia 1050ti and an Intel 630 - It has only one HDMi port which forces the Intel card. But the Mini display port uses GPU (tested with tv and Mini display to HDMI regular cable) Tv came up okay using the Nvidia 1050 ti - However when i plug the rift in i only get sound and a black screen on wearing the rift and device won't show up in devices, Is this because i need a 4k Mini display to HDMI or will this just generally not work with the rift? No worries if not and thanks for the help :)

    You should get a 4K adapter. The Rift render resolution and refresh rate exceed the capability of standard HD components.

    It's not a guarantee that the Rift will work, but it almost certainly won't with a non-4K adapter.

    I'll give it a shot and if not i'll just save up for a desktop eventually, I can run it on an older laptop it just doesn't have decent FPS at all so here is hoping this works i'll find out on monday :)

    Unfortunately still didn't work, The TV works fine with it again but the rift just gives me and orange light but no video and won't be seen in devices but everything else works through the mini display port just not the rift, Anyone have any other ideas or should i start saving? lol

    Oculus software gives green light on the hdmi just getting no video and drivers show up on the laptop

    Make sure you're not on the latest Nvidia driver, there is a black screen issue. I believe 388.71 should be working.

    I got it working! I bought another Mini display to HDMi but i specifially bought a 'Cable Matters' one and it worked instantly, All other cables failed to work except this one despite the others being 4k too. So if anyone else is having this issue make sure you get a cable matters one, I read in so many other posts it works for everyone else too and i can confirm it works flawlessy on my end also.

    Hello!

    Your mini display port is connected to Intel HD?
    I have a problem with the HDMI port it does not detect my Oculus headset in the installer by cons by going in Nvidia configuration panel I only have a single mini displayport port that runs by Intel HD so I want to be sure its walking with a Matter Cable if you say yes I would like the link you have to order thank you!
