Dual External Monitors 1440p & 1080p on Thinkpad Yoga S1

Q: Dual External Monitors 1440p & 1080p on Thinkpad Yoga S1

I have a ThinkPad S1 yoga bought in Dec 2013. I have being using the mini hdmi to work of 1 external 1080p monitor these last few years and it has worked fine. I now want to add a new second 1440 x 2560 along side my 1080 x 1920 monitor for a dual monitor set up. (Mostly for spreadsheets, emails, web browsing etc.) I do not mind if one of these duplicates my laptop screen. I was going to get the onelink dock to enable me to do this however I am not sure if it will work. I know the resolution with dual monitors running off the dock is limited at 1200p. What I now want to do is use the mini hdmi on my laptop for one monitor and the onelink dock for the other, however I want to be sure it will work before I go and buy the monitor and dock. Alternatively I could buy an USB 3.0 to hdmi adapted to run the 1080 monitor and a usb hub for the extra usb's I will need. (I think the dock will use less processing power and would be a slicker set up so I imagine it would be better?) You?re help would be appreciated as I have read there can be issues trying to get higher resolution monitors to work.

Hi all, I have a Yoga 260 and two external monitors.  It does not seem to matter how I connect them, USB, HDMI, whatever the thing with a square on one end and USB on the other, directly or through a splicer I can not get the Yoga to recognize the third screen individually (yoga has one monitor, plus 2 external monitors = 3). I go to display settings but it just will not recognize the third monitor at all unless I use HDMI out of the laptop in to a splicer then 2 HDMIs out and in that case I only get duplicates on the two external screens. Any suggestions about the best way to set up... as in "it worked for me when I connected USB to one monitor, then daisy chained that to a second one" or "it worked for me when I HDMI to one screen and USB to a second" etc... Thank you

My work purchased a Yoga 900-13ISK and two external monitors with HDMI and the traditional VGA inputs. I would like to connect the machine so I can run two external monitors simultaneously when I'm working from home. The best solution I have found is the type c adapter which will allow my to run one external monitor only. Does anyone have any guidance for setting up the machine to run two external monitors simultaneously? Thanks!

Upon reading articles online about the Yoga 900, it does support dual monitors (HDMI or Display port), but you'll need a USB-C adapter. Does your USB C adapter have two display options on it?

I have the exact same equipment at home and at work and yet the resolution on my second monitor at work will not go to the 3840 x 2160 that I have at home. Both locations have:1. X1 Yoga (first gen, model number 20FQ002YUS) -- It's the same laptop that I take between home and work2. ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (model number DU9047S1)3. Two (2) Asus monitors (model number PB287Q) that go to 3840 x 2160 max resolution, connected to the OneLink+ Dock via DiplayPort cables I've been running this configuation with NO PROBLEM at home for the past 9 months.  So I recently purchased a new OneLink+ Dock and two new monitors for my work office and while one monitor will go to 3840 x 2160, the other will not go above 1920 x 1080, UNLESS, I use a mini DisplayPort cable from the second monitor directly into the X1 Yoga (bypassing the OneLink+ Dock) HERE'S WHAT'S BAFFLING: I assumed it was the dock and so I brought the one from home to work and found I had the SAME problem, suggesting it was the second monitor.   But I exchanged the second monitor for a new one and still have the same problem.  The docks are running the most current firmware. I'll send a gift card to your favorite coffee house if you can solve this mystery.  Thanks!

Hey guys,

Im running the following rig: 6700K, GTX 980Ti Zotac Amp Extreme!, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, Windows 10 (running at 4k), Samsung u28d590d (4K Monitor). This question is gaming related. Normally i play games at either 2160p or 1440p. However, if I try to set a game to 1080p (which is different from windows resolution, so Nvidia settings seem to have no effect on it through the control panel), like Star Citizen or for testing purposes Fallout 4 / Arma 3, the colors turn very washed out and grey. The monitor is connected via Displayport. The components used in the build are all from top notch brands. Higher resolutions work fine. Might it have something to do with windows resolution? Any suggestions on how to fix the issue?

I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the t60, I have tried the external monitor port on the laptop as well as the one on the docking station and have tried all configurations through the software. Nothing seems to be giving me a screen on the viewsonic. The viewsonic works, I had it plugged into another pc here at work. I unplugged it and tried it on my laptop and got nothing.

Hi, I'd like to add a couple of external monitors to my Yoga 2 Pro, specifically the Dell u2515h model. This has dvi and hdmi in and displays at 2560x1440. Will the micro hdmi drive 2560x1440? How would I get the second external monitor connected? I've seen some usb3 - hdmi connectors but most seem to top out at 1920x1080.  How do do I get this to work without spending a fortune on connectors- I'd rather spend the money on getting a better set of monitors.  Should i I give up on the idea of dual 2560x1440? Should I go for two u2414h monitors, which would give 1920x1080 on each screen?  Thanks, Ian Brown 

A:Yoga 2 Pro, external monitors

AFAIK the Yoga 2 Pro's built-in HDMI is version 1.4, which should be able to output 2560x1440 at 60Hz.As for a second monitor, you can look into a USB 3 to HDMI DisplayLink solution. Some of these support up to 4K. The biggest caveat with a USB solution is that the CPU will be under a fair amount of strain as it must handle the encoding of the video stream. This also means that while you can probably output 60Hz office and productivity work over the USB, any fullscreen games/videos will be very choppy.

A:Thinkpad P52S Ultra Dock and 3 External Monitors

As stayed in PSREF, P52s supports up to three independent displays. Laptop's screen includes in this limit, meaning you can use two external displays at that time. When you close the lid, you can use three external displays. To use more, you'll need some sort of USB adapter to increase such a limit. Regarding other question, you can't disable Intel GPU - it's always active and it's always controls screen output. NVIDIA's dGPU can be configured to be used in selected applications, making them to work with higher performance. P52 and P72 for sure have an ability to disable Intel iGPU, giving the control of screen output to dGPU. Probably P1 and/or X1 Extreme have the same feature too.

I've set up the laptop to work with 2 external ThinkVision L171 monitors, using Windows 7 Professional. One is connected via the VGA monitor port on the laptop; the other is connected via VGA to a Lenovo/DisplayLink USB 2.0 Port Replicator (model VDK8736 -- with drivers updated).

Both monitors are working well and available when the laptop lid is closed. The issue is that after the screen saver period completes, the laptop powers down completely. I'd like it to just shut off the screen and resume on mouse movement.

The laptop is used with external monitors when it's plugged in -- and the power settings are:
Balanced profile
Display turns off after 2 hours
Screensaver starts after 10 minutes
Computer goes to sleep - Never
Hard disk off - never
Internet Explorer: Javascript Timer Frequency - Maximum
Desktop background settings : available
Wireless Adapter Settings: Max Performance

So i have a HP HDX16t with a 512MB Geforce 9600M GT video card running Win7 64bit Home Premium. The laptop has a VGA and an HDMI output. I currently have an external monitor (19" ViewSonic VX900) hooked up to the VGA output. Does anyone know if i can hook my second external monitor (also ViewSonic VX900) up as well through the HDMI port? The VX900 has VGA and DVI-D inputs, so i would definitely need an HDMI to DVI adapter (which i don't have currently). I have searched around on this, but havn't been able to find anything conclusive. Nvidia's 9600m GT page is sorely lacking in details.

I know i could set this up by buying a Matrox DualHead2Go adapter as well, but i was hoping to avoid spending an extra $200 that i would rather put into upgrading my aging monitors. Also the apparent downside to the DualHead2Go adapter is that i would need to place both monitors on one side of my laptop vs one on either side (as i had hoped to do).

I have an L380 provided by my employer and thought I'd come up with a good solution for connecting two external monitors whilst working from home. I purchased a USB C to HDMI Cable for one monitor and utilised a HDMI to HDMI cable for another monitor. As theres a USB C video enabled port and a HDMI port on the L380 I saw no reason for this to be unsuccesful. However, it would appear I can only have one display active at any one time. If I turn one monitor off, the other comes on... but I'm unable to run both simultaneously. Is there any reason why this is happening and what are my options for utilising two external monitors at the same time? Many thanks.

Hi, Everyone. Got me a nice little x270 to replace my old x201.  Happy enough with the machine, but getting it connected to my accessories (monitor, keyb, mouse, ethernet) is a bit of a chore. This machine appears to have a "proper" dock port on the bottom.  Is there a compatible ultradock available for the model 20HN x270?  By proper - I mean, Not USB.  A nice dock I can simply drop the machine into when I'm at the home office.. Thanks!

I really don't understand what's Lenovo doing? I have waited a long time to get the powerful Ryzen CPU on a Thinkpad and now after waiting so long they didn't add the option to get the better display? The only issue is that they offered the Higher Display option for the Intel version? but why not the AMD? I think AMD should take over now and all the CPU's should be AMD since they offer much more than Intel especially on Notebooks, but not adding the option to choose a higher display is like a plan to kill AMD Thinkpad's.

A:Thinkpad T495 No 1440p option?

Regardless of what you think is better, the demand is much higher for the Intel machines, so it makes sense that there would be more options, and that the less-often options would be the ones not offered.

I have it connected to two external monitors via USB-C and DELL WD15 dock. Laptop screen is ON as well, so I have all 3 screens in extended mode.The problem is it runs very slow, websites open slowly and simple youtube video takes up to 50% of CPU... I have enabled "Show kernel times" and looks like most of CPU time is taken by kernel on all 4 logical cores.The laptop is running Windows 10 Pro with 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, i5-7300U CPU. How do I debug this?
