Yoga 2 Pro external monitor not working after Win 10 update

Q: Yoga 2 Pro external monitor not working after Win 10 update

Ever since updating to Windows 10, my Yoga 2 Pro (model name 20266, Mfg Date 14/08/2014) is unable to connect to an external monitor. Tried a few TVs and a projector using the micro HDMI port. I've connected other computers to each of the monitors so I know they work. I understand how to use WIndows intimately (35 year old software engineer at Google, been using WIndows 20+ years), trust me, this is not a case of me forgetting to use Windows key + P or anything like that. The mirco HDMI port itself (physically) is fine and was working great until the day I downloaded Windows 10. So unless it happened to spontaneously stop working on the exact same day i upgraded to WIndows 10, it's not a hardware issue either. The issue is that the external monitor is simply not detected, no matter my attempts to play with the display options.I have also run the Intel driver update utilty, but it refuses to update the driver because it says it's detected manufacturer drivers and tells me I should get the manufacturer drivers. Ok, so I went to the Lenovo Yoga 2 support website, the latest driver they offer on that site is 10.18.15.4240. The driver update doesn'tmake a difference. Now, if you go to Device Manager > Display Adapters > Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, right click and selected "Update driver software..." it will download an even newer version (10.18.15.4279). This doesn't work either. I've search all around the web and cannot find a solution. I'm debating installing ubuntu or something, I'm weary of Win10 already... Any help you guys could offer me? (For the record, I have already tried searching the forums and Google, to no avail)http://www.tenforums.com/graphic-cards/13139-external-monitor-not-detected.htmlhttp://www.tenforums.com/graphic-cards/25209-external-monitor-worked-but-now-does-not.htmlhttp://www.tenforums.com/graphic-cards/18509-laptop-screen-not-detected-when-using-external-monitor....http://www.tenforums.com/general-discussion/13668-yoga-pro-2-unusable-after-windows-10-a.html Thanks!

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.)

I unplugged the cable to move my ultrabook, plugged it back in and now the connection with the external monitor is completely dead and won't come back, any chance its something other than the USB C port being broken? It worked fine for 48 hours.

I upgraded to Windows 10 last week and everything was smooth.  Today when rebooting my system, the unit no longer can see my external display.  I have tried multiple other displays and none seem to work.  I have the latest video drivers for Win10 from the support site installed but it still doesn't work.  Any thoughts?

A:Yoga 2 Pro + Windows 10 = External Monitor not working via micro HDMI

I experienced the same - and also inconsistently that the system is going sluggish/lagging heavily. To fix problem with HDMI downgrade to drivers for Win8.1 - it works but hopefully Lenovo will fix this issue with Win10 drivers!? Overall upgrading to Win10 has been a bad experience (regarding the lagging of the system which usually occurs after 20-30 min after logging on). I've tried removing all third-party startup programs (including Lenovos) - but to no help. The frustration is increasing - any tips will be appreciated :-)

The title says it all. I'm very frustrated with this problem since I really need to connect my laptop to an external monitor for work. I've read and tried all relative topics in this and intel forums (e. g: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-920-can-t-connect-to-any-external-mon...), have done all steps mentioned (including firmware, bios and windows update, windows reset, ...) but the problem still persists. 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. I am sure it is a software issue since there is no sign of any hardware one (all devices are fine as device manager shows and diagnostics app found no problem). It was just working fine until suddenly stopped working (probably after some recent windows update). I would greatly appreciate any help.

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?

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.

Connect one screen using the HDMI port, and the second using Lenovo USB-C to HDMI Adapter then connecting the second using hdmi cable -  in this case only the monitor connected directly using the hdmi (without the adapter) actually worked. 2. Using Lenovo Thinkpad USB-C dock  connected to the USB-C port and connecting the dock to the screens using Displayport-  in this case none of the monitor worked. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?  I also tried to update the computer's BIOS but it didn't helped. Thanks!

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.

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.

I am thinking of getting the Yoga 3, and occasionaly I would like to use an external monitor. My question is, can I put the yoga in kind of a shallow tent mode, and still use the keyboard? I'm guessing the keyboard and trackpad are disabled when you flip the thing into tablet mode, but what about in tent? SO, from the closed position, I am hoping to open it about 200 degrees or so, or anything slightly greater than having it lay flat at 180 degrees. Will this work? Thanks!

A:Using yoga 3 as a keyboard with external monitor

No, when your are over 180, the KB and pad are disabled. But you can buy bluetooth KB and mouse.. What you want to do is weird, what's the point of plug an other screen if you do not see the first one ? TV ?

A:Connecting a Yoga 2 11 to an external monitor

Hi, welcome.
 
It shouldn't be hard to connect an external monitor to a laptop. What kind of port does it has? mini DP? HDMI?
 
What I had see on other cases is that some cables and adapters may produce some problems. So trying different ones that you may have arround, or connecting the laptop to a near by TV just to be sure it is not also the monitor.
 
My only ideas are:
1) Try Win+P key combination to be sure that you ar extending or duplicating the screen with the secondary monitor.
 
2) From the Yoga 2 11 support site, try update the video driver and see if something improves.
 
Give it a try to see if something works.

I have had a Yoga 900 for 8 months and had no problems connecting to my TV and monitor with a USBc-to-HDMI adapter. This week I have tried using my normal setup, and the display on the laptop screen is fine but the extended or duplicated image on any external screen it flickers. Every two minutes or so, the monitor says 'no signal' for a second and then the image returns, sometimes after thin white lines flash across the screen. Additionally, using the laptop speakers when connected to a TV/Monitor is fine, but nothing can be heard when trying to use the speakers of the HDMI connected device. I have tried flashing the BIOS, updating with the latest graphics card drivers on Lenovo's website, using a new CableCreations adapter, switching HDMI cables, switching TVs, un- and plugged into the AC adapter. Nothing changes. I have also used a USBc->HDMI->VGA adapter/cable, and the flashing lines disappear but the the external display continues to cut-out periodically. I would appreciate any ideas about why this problem would surface now, and/or how to resolve it.

I currently have a Lenovo Yoga 910 (no 4k version) and I've been having problems connecting to an external monitor for some time now. The monitor works well with other devices so I'm positive it's a problem with the laptop/adapters. My external monitor is the following: Acer LCD. It does not have an HDMI port, but it has a DVI port. As far as I know, all of my drivers are up to date. I have two methods for connecting: 1. CableCreation USB-C male to HDMI female + BlueRigger HDMI male to DVI male 2. Choetech USB-C male to DVI male I used option (1) for a while with success, until suddenly it only provided low resolutions for the monitor. Now, when I try option (1), it won't even extend the display. I'll select "Extend these displays" and apply, only for it to go back to "Show only on 1". So this has somehow gone from working perfectly to not at all. I thought the CableCreation adapter might be faulty, but then: I recieved the cord for option (2) today, and the outcome is exactly the same. "Extend these displays" automatically reverts back to "Show only on 1". Thanks for any and all help!

This only happens in Windows applications such as Visual studio and MS Word menus, not in web browsers or other applications.  One monitor is via an hdmi cable to the Type C connector, the second is via an external graphics card and a hub to the USB drive. Both monitors exhibit the same issue. Does anyone else have this?

I am going to detail my experience connecting my brand new Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB-80Y70063US to my also brand new LG 43UD79-B 43" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor which has a USB-C port in addition to its 2xHMDI/DP/2xUSB3.0 ports. First of all , it works! I get both power delivery and am able to extend the screen onto the monitor in 4K resolution using one USB-C cable. I am writing here to help others, but also because there is a power cycling order in which it does not work, which I would like to know if someone knows what it is. If I play with it enough, I get back to making it work again, but have not figured out the order of rebooting, connecting and disconnecting cables where it consistently works. Power delivery is always working through the cable, the monitor extension is what I have to play to get it working. OK, so here are the steps I need to get these to to work together: 1 - After unboxing Yoga 920, run windows update and reboot several times until it says there is nothing else to update. (windows 10) 2 - Used Google Chrome as Web browser 3 - Go onto LG website to update Drivers/Software:http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-43UD79-B#manuals43UD79 Win10 R3 Driver LG_ULTRA_HD.zip 36K[Windows] OnScreen Control - version 2.82 Win_OSC_2.82.zip 111138K 4 - Purchase USB-C to USB-C CableThis one worked for me :https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L0F6IK4[USB-IF Certified] Cable Matters USB 3.1 Type-C (10 Gbps) Gen 2 Cable with 4K Video & Po...

A:Lenovo Yoga 13 max resolution for external monitor

Dear undersound,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community,
 
The Yoga 13 has the Intel HD Graphics 4000 so its maximum resolution is 1600 x 900 IPS (wide viewing angle) so on the external monitor it will not display 1900x1200 FHD.  
 
Best Regards,
 
Assal

I have the C930 FHD version and am connected to a 23" 1920x1080 display. My admittedly newb-ish question: Can my Yoga support a much larger 4k display or will that display max at the same resolution as my Yoga? Thanks in advance.

I am considering buying a Dell u3417w (3440X1440), but I am not sure my 1st gen X1 Yoga will be able to run the resolution. It has the i7-6600U CPU and Intel HD Graphics 520. Can anyone confirm if this setup will work? I am primarily using it for work spreadsheets etc. (no gaming)
