Displayport over USB-C

A colleague wanted an external screen for his laptop, so he got an ASUS MB169C+:https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/MB169C-plus/

 

His laptop (HP EliteBook 820 G3) has an USB-C port, however.. it's not "Displayport alternate" capable. He does however have a Displayport right next to the USB-C port.

 

Is there any way he can use the external screen we bought for him? An adapter or anything similar?

Hmm, this will work only if the monitor is not also powered trough USB-C

Sadly that won't work either, it's the "wrong way".

 

"Connect from a USB-C port that utilizes "DisplayPort Alternate Mode" functionality to a DisplayPort compatible display"

Mmm, TBH I have no experience with the USB-C so I haven't realised this, but looking at it, yeah, you're right.
