I have problem with connecting a second monitor to my laptop nitro. When I plug the monitor, it says that DVI has no signal even though I have it connected through a HDMI cable. The monitor stays black screened but the laptop recognizes the monitor being plugged. The laptop has two graphics cards Intel HD graphics 630 and a GTX 1050ti. The laptop screen is connected to the Intel card and is says that the second monitor is connected to the GTX 1050ti. Tried Fn+F5 and Windows + P keys, the monitor still stays black.

Model of the laptop - Nitro AN515-51
The monitor - ASUS VE247

If you connect the monitor to the laptop using a HDMI cable and the monitor says no DVI then that, to me, indicates that the monitor may be incorrectly configured regarding the incoming signal port.

Do you have the monitor's User Guide?

May be the following link - do verify:

Note Section 3.0 and Page 3-3 in particular with respect to selecting "the desired input source".

Yea, figured it out. At first none of the buttons on monitor did anything so I assumed it's just connects automatically but it wasn't the case. Thanks for advice.
