HP Elite L2201 Monitor Hook Up to HDMI ASUS?

[ Edited ]

How frustrating this is . . .  I have a new monitor (Purchased from GROUPON) and it has a "Displayport" input, but the output on my computer (An ASUS laptop) is an HDMI. 

 

Is there something I can do?

 

Thanks!

 I am hoping someone can help me with my original question of how to hook up my HP monitor (Displayport) to my laptop (HDMI)

Hi Dave,

I'm not quite sure, but the information I read was:
A hdmi source can't support displayport.
It only work the other way, so a displayport source can support hdmi.
It's because displayport specification was not yet defined when hdmi specification was created.
