Hi guys I recently bought a ASUS VP249QGR monitor ( https://www.asus.com/Monitors/VP249QGR/ ) and I want to connect it to my laptop, an asus ROG Strix G17 G712LW-EV002T ( https://eshop.asus.com/nl-BE/rog-strix-g-g712lw-ev002t-be-azerty.html )

But to use the 144 hz capabilities of the monitor I need to connect it to through displayport. So I bought a usb C to DP cable. But as the title mentioned, windows does not detect the monitor. I don't understand why. The usb C 3.2 port of my laptop should support displayport. Is it because I bought the wrong cable or maybe software issues? This it the cable I use: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B08B5YL38N/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Can anyone help? Thanks

edit: also found this thread, one guy at the bottom bought a 8k usb c to dp cable and that worked for him, but shouldn't a normal 4k cable like I have work? Here's the thread: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/usb-c-to-dp-but-monitor-isnt-detecting.3504791/
