  1. In conclusion, NO a basic female thunderbolt to male DP adapter does NOT work to be used on PCs, it was worth a shot to try, and NOW I'm educated on this subject, I thank you all for your inputs, and questions about my conundrum, but sadly was unsuccessful...
  2. Well, I did order one yesterday, so I guess I will let you know if it works when I get it. I also talked to someone at Best Buy, and they THINK it does, but I'm going to try anyway, and see what happens
  3. Or mini DisplayPort to full size DisplayPort adapter?
  4. Could I theoretically get a mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter?
  5. I tested the power cable of the display by plugging in the magsafe 1 cable to my MacBook, and it WAS charging. I would be lying if I said I've never had a mistake like that before! I really do appreciate your guess though
  6. I guess what I didn't realize was that the female thunderbolt port on the back of the display was an output, not input.
  7. On the photos I included, it shows the little thunderbolt logo on the monitor
  8. Yes, I believe so. Also, when I got this display, I also received with it a Thunderbolt to USB-C adapter, which I tried to connect directly to my mainboard.
  9. I guess I left that part out! Haaha. My roommate has a Thunderbolt to DP, so I connected that cable from the 1060 to the display's IO on the back
  10. I'm going to give as many variables as I possibly can, so I can get as accurate to the answer I can... I just got an Apple Thunderbolt Display 27". I've tested this display on my Early 2011 Macbook Pro 15" and it works 100%, and I'm not sure if I'm just not connecting something correctly or I need to find the right adapter or cable, but I can't seem to get it working on my PC. (Maybe it doesn't) The display has 3x USB 2.0, firewire, thunderbolt, and 1Gb RJ45 port, built into the back of the display, I'm not sure the specifics of the firewire, or the thunderbolt, and there's an extra cable built into (I couldn't pull it out, so as far as I know it's built-in) which has a thunderbolt, and Magsafe 1 (It's a Y cable). The graphics card on my PC is a GTX 1060 3GB, and I have a Z270 PC Mate Mainboard. My question is, how can I get it running as my display for my PC, if possible?
