Q: Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL - which docking station fits best?

Hi, I would like to buy a docking station.I basically did some research and found out that this one should fit best: https://support.lenovo.com/de/de/solutions/pd500265There is no dedicated docking station for the Yoga series, right? What do you think about the Thunderbolt 3 dock Gen 2? Best regards,Reiner

Hello to everyone, maybe someone can help me with my problem or has some advice: I bought a new Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL and wanted to use an external display via the USB Typ C Thunderbolt port, which should be capable off it and is marked by a little Thunderbolt-logo.But nothing is working: There is no signal and it just shows "Billboard USB Device" in the Hardware manager of Windows 10. I used a "Hommie USB C to HDMI Adapter ([email protected])" device to connect. I tried different things:- Using different monitors- Using another OS (Ubuntu) for testing- Installing the automatical Lenovo Updater on WIndows but it hadnt found new Updates Ive read in the forum that other Notebooks have similiar problems with HDMI output via Thunderbolt, but nothing about the Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL yet. Best regards and thanks for your adviceMSPD

A:Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL Thunderbolt HDMI isnt working

Go to start, type in "Display", and go to the display settings. How many monitors does it show? Try the "detect" button - does it see it then? Is the adapter and wire functional?Press the Windows Button and 'P', and choose duplicate. Does it do anything?Let me know.

Hello,I am a litte bit confused with the available information about the type of the 2 USB-A connectors on left and right side of the chassis of Yoga S740, 14inch. The Lenovo web shop for Germany says its USB 3.1 (Generation 2 = 10 Gbps) (see https://www.lenovo.com/de/de/laptops/yoga/yoga-s-series/Lenovo-Yoga-S740-14IIL/p/81RS0016GE) whereas, the manual says it is USB 3.1 (Generation 1 = 5 Gbps). The logo close to the connectors on my Yoga S740 says "SS" - if I remember correctly Gen 2 should have a "SS+" logo, so probably it is a Gen 1 only.Unfortunately, I don't have any devices with Gen 2 interface, so I cannot validate my assumption. Anyone here has an idea? Thank you,Thomas

The newer Dell laptops (the Precision 7510, for example) have the bottom dock connectors very close to the back edge of the body, so that when you connect to them you have this huge gap at the back even if you slide the little dealy forward that is meant to account for different battery sizes. Yes, I know you can get this plastic spacer to fit in the gap so it is easier to line up, but the way it fits makes it take up a stupid amount of space.
Is there a Dell port replicator that actually has the connectors close to the back so that it doesn't waste all this desk space?
And, yes, I know that they make port replicators that the laptop doesn't sit on, that use the thunderbolt or usb port instead of the dock connector on the bottom. I'm asking specifically about port replicators that use that bottom connector.)
Thanks!
And BTW, Dell, it really doesn't help that you try to hide this by offering one photo of most of these replicators taken at an angle where it's really hard to judge that space. 

A:Port replicator / docking station that fits new laptops without huge gap at back?

blackbrook,Below is a link to our Dell port replicators and docking stations. You will need to chat to the sales person for more information. Also, is a post from a user on the DCF with the same system. He was issues an E-Port plus II.Dell Sales http://dell.to/2hBxzd9Quote from DCF Forum User-GeoDosch2"At work my laptop was upgraded to a Precision 7510. With it I got an E-Port Plus II docking station, which was basically the same as the one I had for my Dell Latitude E6520, except wider. It's a stretch to say that the laptop fits this port expander. Yes, you can connect it, but it's like putting a 5 year old kid in a 42 large suit-- he can get into it, but it certainly doesn't fit.I told our procurement dept. that they gave me the wrong port expander, though from the answers here it seems that Dell doesn't make one to fit this laptop. Is that something that's coming out soon? Or am I stuck with the kludge I have now"

Solved!

A:Docking station for Yoga 13

no replies...So does that mean there isn't one?that is a bit of a downer.Also, with regards to the max. resolution, surely that is a much more important feature to document on a laptop's specifications page, unlike rubbish like "onekey recovery", or the fact that it comes preloaded with a lot of bloatware like Accuweather.I assume that the lack of a display port will limit the direct connection to HDMI's maximum resolution of 1920x1200.Thus, the question about docking stations (or other USB 3 gadgets) that can support a larger resolution.

I'm looking at replacing my desktop PC with a laptop & docking station. This is for combined small business and personal use. I thought I needed 16 GB RAM but after some reading, I wonder if it might be overkill. Here is what I often have open all at once: MS Word, MS Outlook, MS Excel, File Explorer, Edge (with up to 20 tabs), Chrome (with possibly another 5-10 tabs). I don't edit videos or photos, use CAD or use the computer for games, so I thought 8 GB might be plenty, but I've been reading that if you like to keep 30 tabs open on a browser, 16 GB is better. I often keep at least 15 open along with several MS Office apps at the same time. I've read that the RAM in the Yoga 920 cannot be upgraded. Should I spend the extra $ for 16 GB from the start? Second question, I want to use a docking station to connect the Yoga to 2 external monitors. One is older and only has a VGA cable. The other has optional VGA or HDMI cable connections. Can someone recommend a docking station that would be suitable? Thanks.

A:Yoga 920 - help choosing RAM, docking station

The RAM on the 920 is soldered in, so it's not something you can upgrade. I've always gone for the most I can get as I expect these things to last a few years and each new update to software seems to require more and more resources from the computer. So, better to have more than you need now than kick yourself later. That's MY credo.

A:USB Type-C docking station for Yoga 900

As far as I know, Lenovo currently doesn't offer a USB Type C docking station for the Yoga 900. As you can't charge the Yoga 900 using the USB Type C port, you have to plug in two cables anyway. You might consider buying this adapter by Dell: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Adapter-Type-Ethernet-470-ABQN/dp/B012DT6KW2 Unfortunately, it only has one USB 3.0 port, but it offers one HDMI, one VGA and one Ethernet port as desired.

 Greeting All: My organization utilizes varying YOGA convertibles as our company standard. We currently have Yoga 920s & C930s in circulation, with a shipment of C740s coming soon.  We've had an absolute heck of a time trying to find a robust usb-c docking station/port hub. For our light users, it seems any of the dongles on Amazon that support a single HDMI, USB-A, and power passthrough (~$25-$35) work fine. However we've gone through several port heavy setups that keep failing. Sometimes it's an inability to detect several monitors, other times it's the power cutting out. Generally, we're looking for:2 USB-A USB-C Power Passthrough2 display outputs. HDMI/DP/Mini-DP are all fine, VGA not preferable. 4k support not necessary. And that's really about it. We don't have much use for ethernet ports, sd readers, or other such. We've been trying docks in the ~$90-$150 pricepoint to not much success. Are we just asking for too much output from a single Usb-C? Has anyone had success in a hub for Lenovo Yoga docking stations that fit our parameters? I know there is a first party box Lenovo offers, however at $270 it is a bit steep. Thanks!

Hi, I don't necessesarily need a docking station, but if it only costs a little more than other solutions to drive 2 monitors then I might as well get a docking station. What should I look for?  I see there is a Lenovo part I can get (0A33970) used for $60-$70.Whatever I get I'd want it to be generic enough to use with other laptops I use. The other laptop I'd want to use it with also has a Thundrebolt port if that makes a difference.  But I think I'd rather have a USB3.0 solution since Thunderbolt is Intel only and I can foresee some AMD Ryzen in my future. So that Lenovo 0A33970 is a USB3.0 docking station.  Does anyone know if this would work with other devices than Lenovo?  I'm especially curious about the gigabit ethernet port... is this a real network adapter itself over USB or does it somehow do passthrough to the existing network interface on the laptop? I'm open to non-lenovo solutions as well.

Hi,I procured a Lenovo Yoga 370 about 6 months ago. Aside from some of the lenovo software randomly crashing on me due to whatever bugs exist in the s/w, it's been working pretty well... until recently. About two months ago, I bought a Type 40AC docking station, which comes with a large power adapter. I was able to use both of those successfully for a month+. About three weeks ago, the power started trickle discharging, even while plugged into the docking station. The battery discharges at a rate of about 8% per hour. When the problem started, the laptop would also avoid charging while plugged directly into the wall (no docking station). However, by disconnecting the internal and bios batteries and running the static discharge sequence (which I had learned about because my previous lenovo laptop also had a power issue :/), I was able to at least get the laptop to charge when plugged in directly to the wall. I've called lenovo tech support 3-4 times about this issue. To their credit, as part of the troubleshooting process, they've replaced the motherboard, replaced the battery, replaced the docking station, ushered me to install the latest power management drive (which I did), flash my motherboard bios (which I did but was silly, because it was a "new" motherboard), and flash my docking station (which I did but was silly, because it was a "new" docking station). I also tried another large power adapter that I use on a power-hungry lenovo laptop. However, the laptop i... Read more

In the last 2 months, I keep getting this message "Docking Station AC Power Problem   AC power is detached from your docking station, or the AC power adapter type is incorrect. Connect a 90-watt AC power adapter or higher to the docking station for proper battery charging and docking station operation." If I shut down the system and leave it connected to the docking stations, it charges up the battery. Battery starts draining when Windows boots up and this message shows up.  I use a 90-watt AC power adapter that came with the docking station. For over a year had no problem with it.  I tried to use a second 60watt AC power adapter power connected directly to the Yoga 260 without the dock and it charges Ok. If I connect the Dock Connector with the second AC power adapter connect, it continues to charge the battery and even after I remove the second AC adapter, it continues to charge through the dock connector. Kind of like Jump starting the system. !!! Please suggest solutions as this is becoming a big hassle and the idea of getting a docking station is lost.
