As in my subject, can the Yoga 720 (15-inch) be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor? I understand that I have to get a usb-c to DisplayPort adaptor to get it to work. However, I am not sure of the DisplayPort specifications in this Thunderport 3 port of Yoga 720 as for a laptop to run 144Hz on an external monitor, it has to be at least DisplayPort 1.2.

A:Yoga 720 - 15IKB: Can it be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor?

I'm not an expert with monitors, but I'd check the monitor's specs to see what kind of inputs it'll work with. I would imagine the monitor will upscale or adapt to the input signal. It'd be silly to make a monitor that wouldn't work with anything the installed base of computers can throw at it.

Hello,I've been racking my brain and losing years off my life trying to figure this out! I bought a BenQ 24" monitor (BL2420PT) that can support 2560x1440 resolution for my Pavilion 17 laptop.  Unfortunately, I can't get the monitor above 1980 x 1080.  Apparently, the GPU (Radon HD 8610G) should support higher resolution, but I can't figure it out.   I am using an HDMI cable (the only monitor input available), which could be the issue?  Maybe it doesn't support higher resolution (e.g.: HDMI 1.3)? I've unplugged the monitor cable, reinstalled drivers, etc.  There is no option above 1980 x 1080.  If this is the case, I'll buy a new computer because I need the resolution for work.  But a simple yes or no would save lots of time a frustration! Thank you very much, - Joey

So, I've bought one of these 27" beasts (Crossover QHD) and currently I am trying to get the monitor running with a Thinkpad x220 (i7) seated in a docking station (according to its specs, it can drive two display ports up to 2560x1600).I connected the monitor by using a Display-Port DVI Dual cable. I read the instructions by Linus Torvalds (yes, personally written by him!) and followed the steps below but to no avail. Here are the commands I've tried; for finding out the exact modeline: gtf 2560 1440 60 xrandr --newmode "2560x1440_666.00" 311.83 2560 2744 3024 3488 1440 1441 1444 1490 -HSync +Vsyncxrandr --addmode HDMI1 "2560x1440_666.00"xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode "2560x1440_666.00" The monitor is turning on and it appears to be the right solution but the rendered image looks totally pixelated as you can see here: http://pbrd.co/18xd0lN What's wrong here? Do I have to tweak my Video cards driver? Seems like the refresh rate is totally out of sync?! I tried the same machine with windows8 but to no avail, either! Thanks for any hints!

Recently I bought a Dell U2719DC monitor and tried to connect my T480s (20L7002LCD, i5-8250U, MX150) via Type-C cable. Sadly I found I encountered a severe monitor flickering issue: every few minutes, the external monitor will blackout for around 2 seconds and come back, which really distracted my attention. This behavior can happen at any time any rate, but I find it can be especially frequent when watching some Youtube videos. One such video is Test video. In that case, the monitor will become nearly unusable.  Here's what I have tried to mitigate the problem:1. Install any Offical Intel Graphics driver of major version 26 (25 or before is not supported by Windows 10 1903), and Lenovo's manufactured driver for T480s. Not work.2. Install the latest, OS preferred, and Lenovo's own NVIDIA Graphics driver. Though I believe this is not an NVIDIA issue since I can reproduce the problem even after the MX150 is disabled from device manager. Not work.3. Update the monitor (U2719DC)'s firmware. Not work.4. Of course, the OS and other drivers had been updated to the latest version through Windows Update and Lenovo Vantage software. Note that includes BIOS update and TB3 update. Not work. 4. I have checked and confirmed it's not a monitor or cable issue. I have another laptop and it worked totally fine. During the process, I find this problem has a weird behavior.

Hi everyone

I have an eeepc 1000he with a viewsonic 22inch screen VX2255wmb. I have been using both for a while now with the dual screen setup without any problem. Since a couple days now, my external monitor won't show the optimal resolution which is 1600*1050. In the screen resolution set up page in windows 7, it used to highlight the optimal ones that respected the aspect ratio of the screen but now it just shows all of them and when I set it up at 1600*1050, I get an error message on the external monitor saying that the configuration I chose is out of range. Now the highest resolution I can use is 1400*1050.
I dual boot with windows xp and I don't have this problem with it. I didnt use any driver for both Os, just plugged the monitor in and it worked.

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks in advance!

Hi & Welcome to the Forum,

1. Notebook Only
2. External Only
3. Notebook & External (extend or clone)

Have you tried to switch before closing the notebook lid to both 2 & 3?

Think on most dells its FN + F8. Try pressing FN +F8 to display only external before closing notebook.

Lastly, have you checked to make sure the notebook is staying awake when lid is closed?

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

I have bought this device as used from ebay. It is working fine except that the External VGA connection does not work. I am using win 7 and have it does recognize the external display correctly and I can configure it as an extended display. However the external display does not show anything. The external VGA monitor is fine as it works with other Laptop machines. I have tried using UBUNTU Live CD on this machine and tried to make the external display work (and it can also recongize the external display and configure it) but there is no picture. I also connected the external display to the vga port and then re-booted the machine but still no picture. I have tried changing the bios settings for the display as well but all my actions point to a hardware fault.

I am not sure if it is a manufacturing fault ? Do you know if this issue has been reported earlier to you. Is there a product recall issued for this?
Please advise as I need to connect this external display but am sure that it is a hardware fault with your device.

I recently purchased a ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen connected to a Thunderbolt Dock. The display of this model is capable of displaying a maximum  resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (WQHD/1440p) using integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics. I have connected an external monitor - a Dell UltraSharp U2713HM - also capable of a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. If the integrated graphics processor can output 1440p on the Yoga, am I wrong to assume it can output 1440p to an external montor? The reason I ask is because I am only outputting 1920 x 1080 pixels (FHD/1080p) to the Dell. I have an HDMI cable capable of transmitting a maximum resolution of 3840  2160 pixels between the dock and the monitor. I've gone over all the settings I can find but cannot select anything more than FHD on the Dell. What am I doing wrong?

Apparently, most users that had faced the same problem been able to get it worked after installing "Type C Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit)" or the BIOS update provided by Lenovo. I installed them successfully but nothing changed.

If I disconnect the dock from the laptop, then the montior connected to the laptop via HDMI turns on immediately work runs at 2560x1440, when I reconnect the dock, it turns off. Next, I took the monitor that was connected to the HDMI port, and plugged it into the mini-DP port on the laptop.

Trying to set a custom resolution in intel control panel gives me an exceeded bandwidth message with the HD 4400. I am using drivers 15.36.19.4170 and I have researched the issue but they always seem to point to using the hdmi out for a dual-link dvi display. One person on superuser had a similar question but I don't think it had a solution that worked I could follow. Can't create custom resolution using intel custom mode app in windows 8.1 - Super User

So does anyone know of a regedit to make this work or if my display can not support this resolution since the way the pixels are laid out or something. I think 3200 is to much for this gpu to handle well but love the real estate, and 2560x1440 is I think the sweet spot for 13 inch displays atm. My desktop res is also this resolution so I feel right at home.

The external resolution support depends on the graphic card which is built in the notebook.

As far as I know the Tecra R940-1HP supports the Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip.

From my knowledge this Intel HD 4000 chip supports max resolution of 2560x1600/32bit via Display Port.

So, here is the deal. I am in search of a 27-inch monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution so I can use it with my early 2013 15-inch retina MacBook Pro and also with other laptops (such as my girlfriend?s Asus VivoBook and any other laptop that I decide to buy). I have alrady discarded a 3840x2160 model as I learned that my retina MacBook Pro will not support such a high resolution on an external screen. I do not use it for heavy photo or video editing or anything. It is basically web browsing and productivity (office applications).

First, an explanation. The fact is that I live in Brazil and offers of 1440p monitors here are very limited. I cannot just order a monitor from the US or from other country (such as Korea) because the huge taxes charged by the government will make it just not worth it. I have made the calculations. Even a very cheap US$ 300 monitor will end up costing about US$ 900 when it arrives in my home due to the magic of Brazilian taxes. And a US$ 500 monitor may end up costing almost US$ 1,500. And that is only after the Brazilian customs office decides to release the product, which may take a few months. Perhaps you have heard of some guy who sends products to Brazil at no additional cost, and that really exists. It is calling smuggling and people may get caught doing that, and I am not ordering a monitor through a smuggler to save a few bucks. No workarounds here. So, the option of not buying in Brazil is pretty much non-existant, so that is why I am st... Read more

A:Yoga 900 to external vizio monitor

I have a 910 and a 920 connected to a Vizio 1080p television using a Trendnet adapter. Might give that a try.
 
You might also need to enable an external display in Settings > System > Display.  But to my knowledge, Lenovo USB-C ports aren't Thunderbolt, so some things that work well on an Apple won't on anything else.

I've been unable to determine what I need to get to enable my Yoga to connect and extend to my two Viewsonic (VS15453) DVI/VGA monitors. Is anyone successfully running their Yoga 900 with dual external monitors? If so, how can I configure my set to do the same? Thanks in advance.

Hey thereI received an external monitor which I want to connect to my Yoga 2 Pro. The monitor (besides USB) has a VGA-plug an a displayport-plug. My Yoga Pro has micro hdmi-plug. Can anyone tell me what's the best way to connect these two devices? I was told to buy a cable with one end as a displayport (male)  and the other end as a micro-hdmi (male). However, I can't find such a cable on the internet? Has anyone a good recommendation?Thanks, Pascal

How many external monitors does the 3rd gen X1 Yoga support without a dock? The spec sheet does say that three independent displays are supported but I want to make sure that this does not include the built in display as well.

Yoga 730-13IKB, Type 81CT, Windows 10, 64-bit Before I purchase an expensive external monitor, like HP's Z27 4K monitor, I'd like to find documentation on the Yoga series support for external monitors, and the potential for the laptop to also be charging, all from that single cable.  Most likely, the arrangement would be using a single USB port to a hub that provides HDMI or DP -- can the Yoga deliver 4K (or lesser QHD), at 60Hz? After about 20 minutes of searching and reading user manuals, 620 integrated graphics reference material, and whether HDR is supported and whether HDCP 2.2 is provided.... sigh. I'm looking for a document written for an end user that accounts for the inherent capabilities of the integrated graphics chipset and OS, the limitations of the USB 3.0 Type-C interface, and describes what range of resolutions can be driven.  If the UBS hub makes a difference, then at least tackle part of that problem with a paragraph of "what to look for" in a USB hub, or "we've tested with the following," in order to successfully drive (and possibly receive laptop charging) from high resolution external monitors.  Use the HP Z27 4K monitor as an example.

Hello,I am looking for notebook that would be able to use two external screens and I have faced Lenovo Yoga 520 with one HDMI and one USB-C port. HDMI is obvious, but what about USB-C video quality? I could not find any sctrict information how does it (or even whether) works.My doubts are reasoned by my previous attempt to DisplayLink via USB-A3.0 which completely sucked (low fps, hard to setup). I am mainly using Linux and it was complete disaster - I had to use experimental drivers and after long fight I achieved about 15 fps...How It is with Lenovo520's USB-C? Will my monitor be usable? What if I use adapter to HDMI/DVI/VGA/DisplayPort? Shall I be bound by uncommon drivers or will it work out of box?

Hello, I have purchased Lenovo Yoga 920 with USB-C docking station and connected two external monitors (1 via DP, and 1 via VGA) to the docking station. I have disabled notebook's screen and I use only monitors, however it is impossible to use the Yoga Notebook in this mode, because my mouse cursor freezes every 5 seconds. I am unable to perform any productive tasks while using external monitors, which is very frustrating. I tried looking at the forum and have found that maybe disabling Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework (DPTF) might solve my issues, however when I boot into the BIOS I don't see any Intel DPTF option available under configuration window. Does anyone encountered similar issues? What could be a fix to my solution? Thanks a lot for help and suggestions.

Hello,I do have a strange issue which is getting rather annoying now.Using my Yoga mostly with external monitor (USB-C) attached, once I disconnect (using it laptop only for some time) and then reconnect again the scaling (usually 150%) most of the time gets messed up. Especially the Office applications get blurry, scaling in Windows Explorer sometime is simply like 200%.I have tried reset to default, update with Lenovo drivers, the Intel original drivers are somehow not supported. Any hint, or sharing your experience is highly appreciated! Best,Beniamin

In a strange twist Lenovo decided not to include a dedicated display port with the 720 13". The USB-C Thunderbolt port can be used as a displayport, but then, obviously, can't be used as a thunderbolt 3 port.I have a $800 dollar thunderbolt 3 card. What I'd like to do is get video out of my laptop to a bigger monitor so I can do work.I tried a USB-3 docking station and it was a nightmare.Is there any way I can use an external docking port to access the displayport in my laptop AND connect my thunderbolt 3 soundcard?I erroneously assumed that all this new technology would enable me to use multiple displays like on my old desktop computer, but what I'm finding is the USB3 solution introduced tons of lag, when it worked at all, and slowed down my computer.If anyone has any solutions, please let me know.
