Like many other people, I have trouble getting my display (Dell U2413) to work properly via TB / displayport with my win 7 installation. However, unlike most people, I am not using any adaptors at all, just a straight mini displayport -> displayport cable. I have been searching for a solution online, but all the suggestions I have seen so far have been useless. Win 7 does not recognize the display at all.


I am running the latest bootcamp and display drivers (5 and 320.49 respectively) on a baseline 2012 rMBP. I should add that the display does work via HDMI, but I can't really be assed with the additional cable and would prefer if it simply worked as intended with displayport..


Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,


MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), Windows 7, Bootcamp 5, nvidia 320.49 (clean)
