Ideapad 520 USB type c port to vga

Q: Ideapad 520 USB type c port to vga

I recently bought an IP 520 i7 7 gen 15.6" machine. It comes with a type c port. I want to know if I can plug in a type c to vga adapter and use another monitor on my laptop. I bought an adapter from Amazon and I tried plugging it into the c socket but that does not work. However, when I tried the same adapter on my sister's Mac , it works just fine. Now my question is, Is the c port just for charging and does not have I/o pins , or my USB c is damaged ?

The on page 7 of the user's guide that came with my new laptop it says that my Ideapad 320-15ABR, "supports USB 3.1 (Gen1, Output 5V ds, 0.9A DC)".  I purchased a SanDisk Ultra Type-C 3.1 flash drive.  However, when I tested the drive it did not perform any better than a Type-A 3.0.  The attached photo shows the results of benchmark tests on both drives.ATTO Disk Benchmark results I also did some crude tests by moving large files to both drives and clocking the time it took to transfer the file.  Transfer time to and from both drives was about equal. I called Lenovo Technial Support and spoke with John.  I gave him this information and, after a minute or so, he told me that my laptop did not have USB 3.1 and that the documentation was wrong. I find this hard to believe.  So my question is does the Lenovo Ideapad 320-15ABR support USB 3.1? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hello, I recently ordered an Ideapad 720s (13-inch). Lenovo web site mentions "*Connecting to a display requires a USB-C to HDMI or DisplayPort cable, depending on display interface." I was wondering I should buy a USB-HDMI cable or an adapter to connect this laptop to an external display. Does anyone know whether the Ideapad 720s (13-inch) model supports native HDMI through a USB port, namely the HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C? (as specified in https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/HDMIAltModeUSBTypeC.aspx) Regards,Franky

Hi, i need help with my internet.My ISP provided me with an internet cable,no modem,just a cable and ipv4 settings would give me internet access on my PC.So, i bought a TP-Link WR-740N wireless router and got it setup.Now i access Internet on my laptop using WiFi.I do a lot of gaming on my laptop.I recently bought Call of Duty Black Ops 3.The game runs fine but it takes some time to connect to a multiplayer session.I read that the NAT type should be open to get a good gaming experience and join games quickly.My NAT is Moderate now and i really wanted to change it to open.In game settings it shows that I need to use UPnP or forward port 3074 UDP.I have tried several ways to port forward the particular port but it is of no use.Can someone here please tell me how can i get an Open NAT type.
These are all the things that i tried.
1.Login to my router and forward ports and enable UPnP.
2.Go to Network Infrastructure and Select my device and add a Port.
Also if My ISP blocks that particular ports,is there any way that i can open them?
Thanks in Advance.

Hello Community,
I've been experiencing constant screen flickers when I used the USB type C port on my XPS 13 (signature edition). 
Situation: I'm trying to display the content of my laptop on my LG HD TV by connecting the TV to an HDMI cable and the HDMI cable to a USB type C adapter, and to my XPS 13. The screen flickers on and off almost instantly. Anyone encounter the same problem?
It's been very frustrating as this is my third XPS. My first 2 had many screen flickering issues in general, and this one I'm currently using only has screen flickering when I attempt to perform features/activities involving the USB Type C port (lightning port).
Any solutions please? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you 

A:Screen Flickering when using USB C type port

I just purchased my Dell XPS 13 last week.  The Dell Thunderbolt H15 Docking Station has the same problem.  It will work fine for a few minutes, then the screen will go black and it will come back on in a few seconds.  Dell Customer Services could not figure it out, but they said it was a known issue that they are working on.
So, I bought a Cable Matters USB-C to HDMI adapter along with an Amazon Basics HDMI cable.  This seems to work with a monitor, but not with my Samsung HD TV (I have two, and the problem is the same with both).  The screen again goes black, then resets every 15-20 seconds.
I am not sure what the issue is, but if I find something in my research, I will bring it here.

I'm not expecting to use G-Sync with this laptop, but I want to be able to use the external monitor anyway. My question is, can I use the USB Type C port for this purpose? Some USB Type C ports are Thunderbolt 3 which is DisplayPort compatible. Is this one of those ports? Thanks.

Hey everyone. The internet I use at work requires a proxy to use (I connect to the network, which is unpassworded, and then go to my proxy settings and configure the IP and Port for the proxy server, and I use that same one for all protocols). After setting it up with the proxy I've been told, the internet works. However, I obtained a free-to-use proxy (IPORT style, from the internet), and after verifying that it works at home (set it up, internet works), if I try to use that same free-to-use proxy at work, the internet's a no-go.
Any ideas?

So I just recently bought a Yoga 920, Star Wars Editon, this last weekend. And today I had my phone connected up through the USB-A port, and while attempting to remove the cable from the laptop, it took a little more effort than normal, only to find that one of the pins inside the port had been bent. I took it into Best Buy to have GeekSquad take a look, and aside from sending it out and having to wait 1-2 week, they suggested I contact Lenovo about the port replacement ability, and then bringing it in for them to work on. So, my question is, is the USB-A port a replaceable part, and if so how would I go about getting a part? Or will I need to have them handle it and send out for repairs?

Hi, It's a strange issue. FullHD : 1920 x 1080HalfHD (HD) : 1280 x 720 My Windows display properties are set to FullHD.DirectX diagnostics also show it as FullHD. However, as strange as it may seem, the output is not FullHD. The best known way for me to test was to go to browsers that "show my screen resolution". They are accurate and I have been using it for quite some time now, being a web developer that I am.Now, all of those websites refer the screen resolution as 1280x720. Another way to check the resolution is to pull out the browser developer tools, drag to change the browser width and check the changing screen resolution. Can anyone with a similar model confirm this behaviour?Any suggestions or tools that I can use to check the screen output instead of just relying on the browsers?

I don't see why that would be the case when it mentions on the product page that it can have two additional DP ports (see below). So why not both? Would it be okay to have both the Type-C and HDMI connected if I didn't use the Type-C connection as a display connection; instead just as an ordinary USB data+power connection?Here are links to the:Product Page - which mentions "2 x Punch Out (1: Serial/DP/HDMI/USB-C + 2: DP/VGA)";Customize Page - which will only let you select either HDMI or Type-C but not both; andUser Manual: - note items 9 & 10 of page 4 '2 x Punch Out', and items 3 & 4 of page 6 (item 4 is labeled as a 'Storage drive fan connector' but this is where I have my working 'DisplayPort to HDMI Port' internal cable connected).Just out of curiosity, if it can support two additional DisplayPort ports, where does the second one connect to the main board?

Been a little embarrassed at two client sites in the last couple of weeks when I've tried to share my screen using the USB type-C port with either DVI or HDMI. In both cases (but not with VGA - it works fine with VGA, usually) the system locks - no keyboard, no mouse, until I remove the cable from the USB port. I've tried this with several adaptors - DVI-DisplayPort-USBC; HDMI-DisplayPort-USBC (there are no "multi-adaptors" from TypeC to all output types - VGA, DVI and HDMI, but there are plenty of display port multi-adaptors, and there are TypeC to DisplayPort.) The system at my office is VGA - and it works just fine. When I try to plug the DVI cable into the multi-adaptor, though, it behaves exaclty like at client sites - machine lock up and then no DVI out on the secondary monitor. Same for HDMI at the office - machine locks up for several seconds, recovers and then no HDMI out. Can't really afford to buy three completely different adaptors (assuming they're even made) for all possible client possibilities. Please tell me what diagnostics i can perform to isolate the problem.To summarize:VGA->DisplayPort->TypeC works (most of the time - not in all instances)DVI>DisplayPort>C never works (locks up and then doesn't recognize seconndary monitorHDMI>DisplayPort>C - ditto with DVI Thanks.
