    I only get the HDMI output, the other two, USB-C and MINI-DP do not work, black screen.
    Is it necessary to make them work?

    Can you tell me what kind of cable you used?

    I’m using the HDMI cable that's provided with the n42c-4 and an adapter. Plugable Active Mini DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 Adapter (Supports displays up to 4k / UHD / 3840x2160@60Hz) I bought it on Amazon

    Please provide more detail.

    How are you attempting to connect:

    Direct USB-C to USB-C connection?
    Direct MiniDP to MiniDP connection?

    Or are you using adapters? If so, what adapters/converters are you using?

    An active adapter is required to convert Mini DisplayPort output to HDMI/DVI output.

    It's the same as MINIX NEO Z83-4: http://www.minixforum.com/threads/active-mini-dp-to-hdmi-adapter.15618/

    This is mentioned in the product description, packaging and user guide for MINIX NEO N42C-4.
