Trying to daisy chain, but monitors mirror

Doesn't seem to be the case here. I tried the setup with my dad's HP Elitebook Dragonfly max and it worked perfect. Though, I used Thunderbolt here. So Laptop to monitor 1 via thunderbolt and then M1 to m2 via DP.

 

It's an old i5-3570 iGPU. I'm doubting the DP version here, which I suppose should be at least 1.2 to be able to do daisy chaining.

 

The PC is an HP Compaq Elite 8300(NOT an all In one). I've tried looking up the specs but couldnt get the DP version on this one.

Unfortunately Intel 3000 series processor integrated graphics do not support MST.

Alright. I've got two HP E24d G4's with me. Both have a DP in and a DP out, which I understand means the two support daisy chaining. But, when I connect a DP cable from the PC to one monitor, then another from this one to the next(keeping in mind not to mix up in and out), the two just mirror. Windows Settings does not recognize the second monitor at all.

Spoiler

I'm not sure how to check if my version of Display Port on the PC supports daisy chaining, but it shows a D++ symbol beside the port.

So how do I extend my desktop to the other monitor instead of mirroring?

Thanks!

If I started a new shop, and named it "Shop", what would be your reaction? That's my reaction when people title their post as "Windows 11" or something shitty instead of something that actually describes what the thread is about. Only cool kids (dark mode users) can read this.

Are you sure it's in and out and not two ins?

Yup, the ports are clearly mentioned as IN and OUT.

Just because it's "out" doesn't mean "distinct".  "Out" probably is just a signal pass-through/duplication; not distinct.

It just depends on the GPU that the computer is equipped with.

Can't say I've ever seen that be the case. I don't think that's the issue here. DP out ports are for MST.
