Q: ThinkPad T480 20L6 connected to Lenovo ThinkVision P27h with USB-C cable, no image

Cannot get the display connect to the laptop through the included USB-C cable. Tried using both available ports, and through a docking. Windows detects that something is connect, but says ?Display connection might be limited?. The display doesn't appear in device manager, only the USB hub on the display. Laptop is updated with latest windows. Also tried updating the thunderbolt 3 firmware. DisplayPort through DP cable on dock works fine.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi, We purchased T490s laptops and 4k ThinkVision T27p-10 displays for them, but I cannot connect them to run with 60hz on 4k resolution.  I tried connecting through thunderbold and usb-c as well as HDMI. I updated all drivers to the newest one. I used cables delivered with products as well as separately purchased 50GB/s thunderbolt cables and 4k 60hz HDMI cable without success.  Can you advise if this is possible and if so where can be the problem?  We have 5 sets of such laptop + monitor and all of them cant display 60hz but are stucked on 30hz.  Thank you for all your help.  BestBart

Hi, I am facing the exact issue described in the link https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T480s-microphone-is-always-active/td-p/4... I tried updating the realtek drivers but still I am facing the issue. In laptop the device always listens to the microphone and if I am on a call then the voice is sent even when the hardware mute is activated. I need to forcefully activate the mute on the calling software to stop the voice being heard by the other party. Installed the latest realtek drivers which has been released in March-2019 but still the issue is not resolved. Is there a solution for this issue? Software fix or updated driver to resolve the issue?

Should it be, or is it possible to use a ThinkPad USB-C Dock with the ThinkVision M14 mobile display? The M14 device is pretty new, so there isn't a whole lot of information on the internet yet. Most descriptions say you can daisy chain USB-C devices and I have all 3 items mentioned in the subject. But when the USB-C dock is connected, none of the USB devices work. I get power, but not USB device functionality. Should this be possible? Thank you.

Hi All Recently our company purchase a bulk of x1-carbon and P27h-10 monitors. However we are expericing issues when we try to connect the laptop back to the monitor after some time. It does not wake up from the power saving mode. Even restarting the laptop does not solve this issue. We need to keep restarting multiple times and by chances it will be detected. This happens only with the x1-carbon laptops and we have no issues with other brand laptops like Dell. Just to note we have already update the firmware and drivers for the x1-carbon. The Lenovo on-site engineer have also replcace out display ports and motherboard of the notebook but the problem still exist till date.

Hi All,  My '21 days old' ThinkPad T480 - Top of the line machine warms up at the top-left section of the keyboard, just above the vents!   I'm not sure what needs to be done. I raised a complain with the Lenovo Support and the technician who paid a visit today, apparently was ready to replace the motherboard, because he thought that I reported a heating issue with my machine. But that wasn't the case. I'm surprised though that they were ready to replace my machine with a new mother board, without knowing the exact issue.  Any ways, so all he did was replace the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU, I was okay with that, as I read in many forums that replacing the thermal paste helped reduce the heating issues.  Its only now that I'm starting to realize, that I don't think its more of a heating issue, but a SERIOUS design flaw in T480 machines.  The top-left edge portion of the keyboard that which is just above the vents, seems to start warming up within 30 mins of NORMAL usage. I don't see the fan doing its job either, may be its suppose to speed up at very high temps, irrespective, what I think is the problem is that the fan case that is connected to the vents, for some reason the casing touches the vents plastic body and that's transferring the warmness up to the place where ones left palm would naturally rest while typing.    It warms up to the extent that I can feel its not comfortable for me to ...

According to https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/docksSearch/ the Lenovo T480 20L6 laptop is compatible with the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station. However the docking station uses an entirely different power supply than the laptop (the old blocky rectangular one vs the newer mini rounded rectangle). The laptop itself fits on the docking station, but does not charge despite the docking station being plugged in. There are two connector slots on the dock that appear to be for the newer power supply, however neither of those provide power either. Is the docking station incorrectly listed as compatible when it really isn't, is there a hardware malfunction, or something else entirely?

Yesterday, I accidently droped just little water on the keyboard. It remained working for a while before the whole keyboard froze and stopped working at all, the strange thing was the beeping that the laptop keeps doing on one second interval, it does not stop beeping unless you press the shut down. The strange thing is that the laptop all working except the keyboard, and this beeping every second that never stops. It is like a blood rate device voice that you hear at the ICU if you are sitting beside a patient. My question is there a way to avoid replacing the keyboard as it seems it is a keyboard issue if I am not wrong? Or should I try to open it and dry it in some way then connect it again and see if this beeps goes and if the keyboard returns to life again? Thank you for the help.

Hey guys, I am having a weird problem with my Lenovo Y510P, there's a LVDS cable which connects the motherboard to the lcd. When I disconnect this cable, the system boots perfectly and I can see the desktop when connected over hdmi to TV. However when I connect it back, the laptop doesnt even POST, no lights, no fans, nothing. I am unable to find the source of this problem, is it the LCD that's dead or some component on the motherboard? A short somewhere? 

A:Lenovo Y510P doesnt POST when LVDS cable connected

My first guess would be a short in that cable since it probably gets flexed alot (if it is the one I am thinking of), and they are pretty cheap. NEW LVDS CABLE FOR LENOVO Y510P 1080P FHD LCD LVDS CABLE VIQY1 DC02001KT00https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-VIQY1-DC02001KT00-LVDS-CABLE-FOR-LENOVO-Y510P-HD-1080P-FHD-LCD-L... Good Luck,

Hello, I am not really sure if this is an X280, a CS18 (Pro) or a ThinkVision T24v-10 issue, maybe all of them - I post in this cateory anyway. When docked to the side dock which is connected to a ThinkVision T24v-10 (Display Port and USB 3 - yes, definitely a USB 3 port), the T24v's camera and microphone are extremly stuttering being effectively unusable for skype or any other form of VoIP. When the USB cable from the monitor gets connected directly to the still docked X280 (i7-8650, 16GB, [email protected]) using the right hand side USB port of the computer, it works without problems. But this obviously is not the idea of how to use a dock... Is this a well-known issue? Google didn't seem to know about this. Any dock-firmware or upcoming driver updates addressing this issue? Can't imagine that ThinkVision's "optimized for VoIP" camera shouldn't work properly while being connected to a dock. What did I miss?  Regards,Logan P.S.  Using stock Windows 10 installation plus additionally installed T24v-10 drivers.

Aryeh,
 
Perhaps you'd be willing to comment on a hardware issue.
I also recently replaced my wife's desktop PC (which I built!) with a Thinkpad T480 that we planned to link with a Thinkpad Basic docking Station (L440?). She has an old, Samsung SyncMaster 214T monitor that required (per our Lenovo salesperson) a DVI ot Display Port cable, which I purchased and connected. Of course, the docked laptop won't recognize the presence of the SuncMaster monitor suggesting the cable may be a problem. It's a standard DisplayPort Male to DVI-I Male Adapter Cable (6 ft). Any thoughts?

Hi my Lenovo Thinkpad t440s screen goes blank for moment when i connect and disconnect the power cable i have tried with updating drivers but it did not work :/

A:Lenovo Thinkpad t440s screen goes blank for moment when i connect and disconnect the power cable

I believe this is due to a setting that changes the refresh rate based on power type. When plugged in to AC power, the refresh rate is 60Hz and on battery it is 50Hz. The switch always make the screen go black for a momment. On my T440s, I right click the screen and choose Graphics Properties , then Power, then on the left side of the screen, "On Battery". Then I disabled "Display Refresh Rate Switching". Hope that works for you, Happy New Year!
