Yoga 730 15 inch support for Dual external HDMI monitors

Q: Yoga 730 15 inch support for Dual external HDMI monitors

How do I get two external monitors to work with my new Yoga 730 15 inch? I have a USB-C to Hdmi but I cannot use it and the HDMI port because all three screens will not show up, only two. Only two monitors will show at one time. What can I do to get these to work? Is there a docking station I can purchase? I have the Lenovo part GX90M44577 that is the USB-C to HDMI port.

Connected an IOGear compact dock to the laptop's USB C. Connected monitor #1 to the dock's HDMI port.Connected an HDMI cable to monitor #2 and used an HDMI to mini display port adapter to connect to the docks mini diplay port.I used the "Extend Display" setting on the laptop.I can only get display on the laptop monitor and one of the external monitors.  I can't get the display to work on both external monitors.  Second external monitor is not detected.  Help please. I am told that a plugable usb type c docking station would work, it has two "Disply ++ Ports".  Suggestion is to use an HDMI to DP++ cable to connect to the dual external monitors. Haven't tried it yet, does anyone know whether that'll work?

I just recently connected dual TV P24 IPS monitors to my X1 Yoga (2nd Gen). The monitors are capable of displaying 2560x1440 rez. I have them both connected to the USB-C dock via display port.  One of the monitors displays fine, but the other won't display more than  1920x1080 and even then it continuously flickers. I've tried updating drivers, changing cables, etc.  Is the X1 Yoga not capable of outputting that resolution to both displays at the same time?

I have a Lenovo Yoga 920. When I connect a single Dell Monitor through a USB-C to HDMI adapter from j5create, the screen appears to be the same as I swap monitors in and out. However, when I used a j5create adapter to plug two of the same Dell monitors in, they're is a visual difference between the two. I'm not familar enough to know if it's color/contrast/brightness/etc, but am confused as to why two of the exact same monitors would require me to set up a custom color profile to work. Shouldn't it be as straight foward as plugging the identical monitors in and expecting the same visual result between the two?

(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.

Hey There. New here and very glad to find this site. Here's hoping someone can give me insight on this problem I'm having.

So I have a very cheap Dell Optiplex 745 I got off amazon. Do some 2d animation, and it was all I could afford when my laptop had a sudden HDD failure. So anyway, the graphics card outputs to a DMS-59 (I believe) and came with a dual Y dongal converter to VGA output to support dual monitors. So my current setup has my monitor connected to the primary VGA output, and it works fine.

So recently I received a Wacom Cintiq graphics tablet. to hook up it requires an HDMI female port. I tried to rig it up using a converter on the secondary VGA port to change to DVI, then use a second converter to go from DVI to HDMI. But all I get on my tablet is "No Input Signal".

I searched around and haven't been able to find anything to help. I tried it in the primary vga port, but it doesn't work there either. Any Ideas? I looked around for a better way to convert DMS-59 to HDMI, and I found a dual splitter, but it only ships from Europe, and I don't want to pay 60 bucks and wait 3 weeks to get something that may not work.

Any tricks you guys might know to try and fix this? Would it be easier to just replace the graphics card with one that exports HDMI? if so any suggestions of a (cheap) one that would fit, and preferably support dual monitors? Would rather not spend much since I'm saving for a new machine that can render a lit... Read more

I have an LCD TV with HDMI I like to watch movies on from my laptop. It's got an ATI HD2600 card.

I had issues setting up dual screens, extended vs clone etc. I just wanted a quick an d easy plug in to watch the movie, unplug to compute again. But would always have to adjust resolution on the TV from 1650 to 1920 manually.
Best I could do was to hook up the HDMI, disable the laptop display and it would show 1920 on the TV and when I unplug the HDMI, the display would come back on and show it's 1650. This is the only way I've figured out so far that would switch to the right resolution automaically. Plugging the HDMI back in would kill the laptop monitor and show on the TV.

Anyone got a better way?

Now I have them set to run through a Monoprice HDMI Switch because I also have my 360 running on the one monitor as well.

This, beyond annoying, messes me up because then i have to replace everything on the screen to the position it was, and using auto arrange would not help with something like Rainmeter which I am running. I do know when I had XP and switched over to the 360 this did not happen. So , I don't know what is different in 7 that is now making it do this but is there a way to fix it?

Have you installed the newest drivers from the Nvidia site? That card is quite old, im not sure if you're gonna get drivers for Se7en, but if not, use the XP drivers.

I have these cards on a fast Dell T7500 with 65 GB RAM and they are FLAKEY. They came with 2 Wesson Active Adapters but the AMD guys said to get ACCELL so now I have 8 ACCELL adapters. At first 8 monitors worked, then 6, then 5. Since 5 does not work at a contiguous desktop, I have dropped one fro the matrix within Windows (still have 8 connected).

AMD tech support is a JOKE! For MONTHS before the Holidays their phones many times said "Can not connect to support at this time" and this was in the advertised business hours for tech support. A few times I did get through, there were people there who had no idea what what going on (had RCV) and kept finger pointing to "software on your machine" And, yet, I have been running with NVIDIA or AMD 2460 cards on this machine for over a year with no problem. I got the W7000 for speed; well, that part is OK, the four that work are fast. But, it would be nice if they all worked. Duh?

Lat week, for instance, I had a talk with a AMD person named Dan who told me (once he heard my story) that there is a ligh level guy named Charlie who really, really wants to work on my case but Charlie is busy now and will call me at 7AM Monday morning. I was here at 6:45 this morning and no call. In fact after an hour I called AMD and the message was AMD tech support does not open until 11 AM. At 11, I called and got some poor guy who barely knew up from down (very polite though) and made all kinds of excuses for Charlie l... Read more

Ok so if I am reading correctly this is the card you purchased correct?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814195118

Now then, you have two of these running in one machine im assuming X-Fired together so you can output on 8 displays. So the way im reading this (please correct my if im wrong) you have 8 display port adapters going to 8 different monitors (Display port to HDMI, DVI, or what?).

So here are my questions:
Which monitors have dropped off (Which card or both and which ports)?
Do you have the latest Catalyst for the Workstation cards running?
What version of windows are you running?

Here's a couple of quick things you can do to try and get all 8 working and ill see if I can't figure out the issue with you:

Try disabling eyefinity and running every monitor as an independent display.
Try rebuilding eyefinity in the control center and see if it detects all 8 monitors

One thing is that display port is designed to hold more than one monitor per port, im guessing you are using the DVI connectors since they came with it. My advice would be instead of using every port on each card, buy some of the dual display port adapters and use only the top card to run eyefinity, using 2 cards for multiple displays tends to run into issues at times especially when connecting such an extreme amount of monitors.

As far as I can tell, the Lenovo no longer has a solution for running dual 4k monitors using the P50 Thinkpad. When you use the docking station, you are limited to the bandwidth of a single DisplayPort 1.2.  This is not enough bandwidth for 2 x 4k monitors @ 60Hz. There was a solution using the Thunderbolt 3 interface with an external adapter, which is what I bought.  Lenovo used to have a Thunderbolt 3 Firmware NVM upgrade to permit inter-operation with the external adapter, but that link has been removed, and there is no way now to upgrade the Thunderbolt 3 firmware. I know of no other solution which will enable me to run dual 4k monitors with the P50. I bought a P50, two 4k monitors, and the Plugable Thunderbolt-to-Dual-DisplayPort Adapter.  But without firmware upgrade, the P50 will not recognize the adapter.  So my very expensive purshase, in terms of both time and money, will not work. Can someone please re-post the Thunderbolt 3 Firmware Upgrade link? Or should I just return all my equipment?

My old monitor has problems turning on, I can leave it on for 30hrs before it decides to display a picture, or I can manipulate it by unplugging the DVI cable from the back, but sometimes even that takes a few tries. It's off warranty and for reference it's a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW.

So I bought a new monitor and I have it plugged in using HDMI, but a problem I get is that when both monitors are plugged in the HDMI has no display until it gets to Windows, so I cannot see the boot process of my PC, because my old monitor as explained above has problems turning on.

Was a hindrance today when I was tinkering with my SSD and had to go to BIOS, and frankly I'd like to be able to see in case anything goes wrong, like a BSOD or Windows update etc.

So how do I get my HDMI monitor to give me a picture when the other monitor is plugged in. My new monitor is another Samsung, SyncMaster SA350.

A:Dual Monitors, HDMI monitor doesn't display BIOS

Short of something like this,

Newegg.com - BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adaptor

not much as that is a function of the video card and nothing to do with Windows. The only way would be to try and edit the video card's bios so that the HDMI port is made to be the primary port when powering on.

Failing that if the old monitor is that bad, why use it? If the new is the only thing connected then it should display the bios screen when booting up.

A:ATI Radeon HD 5450 Dual Monitors HDMI & VGA Resolution Problems

Are you sure what you want is to DUPLICATE the contents of both monitors (referred to as "clone mode")? You want to show the identical desktop content on both monitors identically and simultaneously?

Or do you want to EXTEND the Windows desktop to run horizontally across both monitors, so that your Windows desktop is pretty much "double wide"? This allows you to drag windows onto one or the other monitor, and open up independent program windows on either monitor to meet your needs (e.g. to look at two open program windows independently presented on each of your monitors).

If you run the dual-monitor setup in EXTEND mode (with one of the monitors called "primary" monitor for Windows and the other monitor known as the "extend/secondary" monitor) then each monitor can be configured to run at its own native/optimal resolution, independent of what the other is configured at. So if you have a CRT (typically 4:3 or so) it can run at say 1280x1024 or 1600x1200 or 1440x900 or something like that, while your flatscreen/TV (typically 16x9 or 16x10) can run at say 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 or 1680x1050 or something like that. So you'd get FULL use of both monitors at their native/optimal resolutions, and maximum width of the effective combined Windows desktop.

If instead you do really want to run the two monitors in "clone mode", then you only have a Windows desktop that is the smaller of the two monitors. And you will be running the... Read more

I hate MS's Win2K site. I can't find this out on there, so I figured I'd post it here. So, does Windows 2000 support dual monitors with two video cards?

Thanks,

I need to run two monitors, in extended mode, with several of my 660S desktops. Do I need another video card, and if so, which one?
Thanks.

The full description of the display adapter is: " Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) ".

Can this computer support dual monitors? Not the same thing on each screen, an extension of the desktop, each screen to display something else.

The computer itself has one VGA port and one HDMI port.

The two screens I have, both have VGA and one also has DVI.

I am doing some research on the new W540 laptop and noticed that it doesn't have any other video output other than a 14pin monitor out and a thundrebolt port.  We would like to be able to use dual 30" 2560x1600 monitors.  Any info would be great.  I don't even know if the older laptop docks with this laptop.  The dock has multiple monitor outpots so I thing they would work but I need to know before making a purchase decision.

A:Will the new W540 laptop support output to dual monitors?

Probably not the right forum, but going to the W540 page on the Lenovo site and then clicking accessories brought up a blurb about the ThinkPad Pro dock, which included the following:
 
DisplayPort connector, DVI-D connector, VGA monitor port, and a Kensington security lock slot.
*ThinkPad Pro Dock works with the 2013 classic ThinkPad models, including L Series, W Series, X240, T440p, T540p, and T440 without NVIDIAŽ Optimus? technology.

Hello, Currently I have x1 27" Monitor hooked up to my YOGA 720-15IKB laptop through the USB-C port.  I wanted to see about hooking another one up and looking through some post online it does look like I can do it.  What would I need to make this happen?  Also will the screens be extended off the laptop screen or would it just mirror the laptop? Any help is greatly appreciated.  I am looking to purchase a monitor tomorrow 7/16 if it will work.

Hello,I have just purchased Lenovo Thinkpad A485 Ryzen.I see that there is additional usb-c port along with an HDMI port.I am planing to connect 2 external monitors to the laptop. Thats a total of 3 diplays. The Laptop built in display + 2 Aditional external displays.My questions is:Is this supported with the A485 Ryzen? For all 3 displays to be working at the same time? I was told that there is a linmitation on the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphpics card where I am able to connect only 1 additional external display.If that is the case and I can not add 2 additional diplays to work along side with the built in display at the same time, will a docking station be an alternative that can provde a solution to my issue?For example I am looking at the bellow docking stations:ThinkPad 90W Ultra DockandLenovo ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock Will docking station be an alternative ?

Hi there,
I've got an OptiPlex 3040 micro running Windows 10 64bit (came installed on the machine) and two monitors (Dell U2415, came as a pair) using extended display. One monitor has an HDMI-HDMI cable going into the computer's HDMI port, the other has a DisplayPort-DisplayPort cable going into the computer's DisplayPort port. (There is no VGA port installed on this machine)
Both monitors are on the correct setting for detecting what cable is plugged into them. Whichever monitor the DisplayPort cable is plugged into cuts out to a black screen with nothing on it multiple times an hour during normal computing (mostly email and web browsing). Not a steady flicker, just randomly goes black and randomly comes back on.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the monitors, checked all the settings, ran the troubleshooter (no issues found), updated my graphics card driver (it was already the latest version), and nothing seems to be wrong there.
When I swapped the HDMI and DP cables to see if it was a cable issue or the physical monitor, the monitor that then had the DP cable plugged into it started to have the problem, whereas the other monitor (now plugged in via HDMI) had no problems. Originally there was a Mini DP-DP cable connecting one of the monitors and I thought maybe that was the issue, so I replaced it with a brand new DP-DP cable the other day. Still having issues with whichever monitor is connected via DP.

This computer is not even three months o... Read more

A:OptiPlex 3040 micro, dual monitors using HDMI and DP ports, DP connection unreliable

This does not sound like a hardware failure. Did you check/test all of the Windows 10 power management options? Specifically the PCI Express- Link State Power Management setting? Or just set the Windows 10 power management to High performance and retest. Also, if the U2415s USB upstream cables are connected to the computer, be sure to disable the USB selective suspend setting.

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.

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).
