You have to hold down the top and bottom buttons at the same time for around 10-15 seconds and it will eventually display an unlock icon and you are back in business..

    Yessss it works. but I had to press the top and bottom buttons at the sime time for around 30 seconds, then appears a lock open (unlocked). After that I had to turn off and turn on the monitor and all it was ok

    I had to hold the menu button (just above the power button) for 30 seconds. This only worked when the lock symbol stayed on the screen while I held the button down. If the lock symbol went away it would not unlock the monitor.

    This would only work when I had a computer connected to the display. If the computer is showing no VGA cable or similar it didn't work. After plugging in a computer the above solution worked.

How do I get P2210 monitor to work with USB with Dell Inspiron 15R that doesn't have a VGA port


The Inspiron 15R should have an HDMI port. You should be able to connect the HDMI to the DVI-D port on the P2210 with a cable like this: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10231&cs_id=1023104&p_id=2661&seq=1&format=2 . Alternatively, you can get an HDMI to Display Port adapter. Connect either cable with the notebook and monitor both off. Then turn on the monitor before turning on the computer. Pressing F1 should send the signal to the monitor. However, if you right click on the desktop (anywhere there isn't a program or icon), you should see some links for DIsplay options. You can use those to select the monitor resolution and whether to use both screens (extended or mirrored) or one at a time.

The most expensive option would be a USB to video adapter, see http://www.startech.com/AV/USB-Video-Adapters/ , or docking station. These come with VGA or other video output ports depending on the model. The USB ports on the monitor are just an integrated hub to plug in an external devices. It doesn't communicate to the display.

I hope this helps.

(The DVI to HDMI cable doesn't supply audio but that doesn't matter in this case. However, you may need to go into the Manage Audio devices control panel and disable sound on the HDMI port. Open the Control Panel (Windows + X in Windows 8 or from the Start Menu with Windows 7). Go to Hardware and Sound and then look for Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the playback tab, adjust the default audio device by right-clicking on the appropriate device. Then click Apply.)
