Hi,
I have a ASUS S400C connected to a Lenovo P27q-20 2k monitor via HDMI. The max resolution I am able to achieve is 1920 x 1200 because I think the laptop only supports an older version of HDMI. What do I have to do in order to get the monitor to achieve its max 2k resolution via my laptop? Note that my laptop only has a HDMI and VGA port.

Thanks!

You didn't identify which CPU you have, but for example, that laptop was sold with the i5-3317U CPU. That CPU has the Intel 4000 HD graphics. According to this article on Intel's forum -- https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P0000490IaaSAE/intel-hd-4000-hdmi-2560x1440-resolution?language=en_US The highest resolution supported via HDMI for the graphics processor is 1900x1200. Which is what you have experienced.

You can't get maximum resolution with the laptop you have.
