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 ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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, 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?

Hi, I bought the IdeaPad 520 15-IKB, part number 80YL00P8US, and was planning on upgrading the HDD to an SSD. I've got it and opened it up, only to find there is no M.2 port, other than the one the WiFi card is plugged in to. I realise I can still use a SATA SSD and remove the existing 1T HDD, but then I would have to either not use the 1T drive, or get a ODD caddy, and maybe even a new internal board to connect it.Am I just missing the M.2 port? I didn't look on the underside of the system board, would it be there? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Hi, I recently bought a Yoga 500-14ISK Laptop (ideapad) - Machine Type 80R5 and have used it extremely rarely. I would say I've used it at a maximum of 30-40 hours. I have had some problems with the laptop but nothing that made it completely un-usable until now. On turning on the machine, the network wireless adapter acts strangely, often showing the airplane mode symbol in the task bar. I may or may not be able to connect to my Wifi network but less than 2 minutes later the entire Wifi adapter disappears from the OS, no longer having Wifi settings or being able to configure the Adapter via device manager. I've been told a fix for this may be turning the wireless off and on again via the BIOS but I can't figure out how I access it, considering the first screen I see is the loading symbol for Windows 10. Anyone got any advice? Harrison

Hi OMARDAKAR , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Using the part number for your keyboard on your search would allow you to find compatible and available keyboard in your location faster . You may use the parts lookup page to get it (just keep your serial number confidential) that would show your Machine model number and likewise FRU part number for your keyboard. 
 
You can try it match it from the FRU keyboard part number list from the hardware manual (page100-103).

Hope this help answer your query.

After I did that, I had to reset my entire computer because my husband put a virus on it. I changed it back to factory settings and then updated it to Windows 10 again. When trying to put my stuff from my USB back onto my computer, the USB says that it is unallocated. Is there anyway I can get those files back or are they lost forever?

Hi lleclair46,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!
 
When you inset the USB drive and go to 'Computer', is it showing less space than what there is actually on the drive? You can recover the unallocated space, but this may wipe whatever was on the USB drive.

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?

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?

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.
