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 could not connect via Ethernet using the TPY (Win 8.1) and Onelink Dock (basic).  With all updated software, the TPY kept trying to connect to the USB3-ethernet in the Dock but could not start the hardware. I received a USB device not recognized which cycled during a session and seemed to screw up other parts of the system. Thinking it was a driver issue I uninstalled all the ASIX drivers and removed all the driver packages associated with the ASIX AX88179 and AX88178 controller   (see:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730875.aspx  ). Then ran Windows update which downloaded yet another ASIX package. I downloaded both the Win 7 and Win 8 driver packages from ASIX, unzipped and looked these over.  I modified the *.inf files and deleted all the non-english segments with asian or Russian characters at the end of the file leaving only the English segment and saved these on the C: drive.  (http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131) I reloaded the OneLink drivers from Lenovo.  Ethernet not recognized.From Device Manager,  I tried to update the Ethernet controller driver to the new downloaded, modified Win 8 driver and received the message that the driver was the current driver so it would not update. Instead, I had DM browse for the Windows 7 driver, and loaded that.  Ethernet not recognized. Then I had DM browse for the modified Windows 8 driver.  Thi...

Hello everyone,  I would like to connect 3 external monitors to Yoga 260. I found out that conection of 3 external displays is feasible. It is associated with turning off the native LCD, whcich is OK for me. I would like to use ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (40A40090XX). The docking station has 2 DP and 1 VGA. The issue is I'd rather use 2 DP from docking station and one DP which is on board Yoga instead of VGA. Is such configuration possible? I would like to figure it out before I will buy the station. I've found document: https://support.lenovo.com/uu/en/documents/pd029622 , but there is nothing on using docking stations' DP and native DP in one configuration, simultaneously. Whether it is because on board DP will be disabled? The alternative is MST (eg. http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/multi-stream-transport-mst-hub.html). Both devices are at a comparable price, and if I had confidence that the docking station will work with onboard DP simultaneously, I would choose it.  Thank you in advance, best regardsM

Since no one has replied, I would like close this discussion.  Still someone might benefit for the information, that: - I have purchased and tested ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock- it works with 3 external monitors using 2 DP from docking station and one mini-DP from Yoga itself- working configuration is as follows: 2 displays are connected to OneLink+ Dock with one active DP to DVI converter, one passive DP to DVI converter and the last one (Yogas? port) with active mini-DP to DVI converter- I didn?t try to use for example 2 or 3 passive DP to DVI converters (but I guess that 2 should do the job, but 3 will probably won?t work)- when OneLink+ Dock is attached, the HDMI port in Yoga is not working! (the information one can also find in BIOS, but no materials on-line) Best regards,Maciej

My Onelink Plus dock behaves very strangely, I cannot use the Ethernet port reliably:I bought recently a Thinkpad Yoga 460 ? after my previous Thinkpad ? and an Onelink plus dock. After docking I have to disconnect and reconnect all cables from/to the dock to make the Ethernet work.After that it works great for a period, but sometimes it loses the connection. I have to unplug again all the cables and reconnect them to make it work. To the dock I attached the following: USB keyboard, mouse, external drive, DisplayPort cable (with DP to DVI adapter) and the Ethernet cable. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit (ver. 1607) from a clean install. Every device in the Device Manager seems to be OK, even the ThinkPad OneLink Plus Dock Ethernet.I have the latest software and firmware.Lenovo Companion cannot find new updatesI have updated the BIOS to ver 1.46.I have also updated the Onelink plus dock firmware (Version: 2.33.000). Any idea?

Dear all,

I just received my new Thinkpad X1 Yoga, brand new, with a dock OneLink+

Both are running fine. But it is impossible to start the PC when the dock is connected: The screen freeze at the red square LENOVO display from the Bios, windows 10 pro doesn't start.

I have to disconnect the dock, et relaunch the PC to enable a normal start. After the start, I can reconnect the dock.

I updated all drivers, flashed the bios, latest FW of the dock and even resetted Windows, but without success.

Lenovo support wants to change the laptop (!), it's brand new!

I thought maybe one of the topgun member of this community might have a better idea.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

When a Windows 8 ThinkPad Yoga is connected to a ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock (Model DU9033S1) which has a sound cable placed into its headphone jack, every few seconds the sound will alternate between the laptop speakers and the docking station. It appears that the connection to the docking station is briefly lost (sound comes from laptop speakers), and then re-established (sound goes to docking station). However, during this "disconnect/connect", all other aspects of the docking station are unaffected (video, network, USB).
 
Updating BIOS, audio drivers, dock drivers & firmware have had no impact. If sound cable is removed from dock, then behaves normally (sound goes to dock only). Happens with multiple Thinkpad Yogas and multiple docking stations.

I have the exact same equipment at home and at work and yet the resolution on my second monitor at work will not go to the 3840 x 2160 that I have at home. Both locations have:1. X1 Yoga (first gen, model number 20FQ002YUS) -- It's the same laptop that I take between home and work2. ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (model number DU9047S1)3. Two (2) Asus monitors (model number PB287Q) that go to 3840 x 2160 max resolution, connected to the OneLink+ Dock via DiplayPort cables I've been running this configuation with NO PROBLEM at home for the past 9 months.  So I recently purchased a new OneLink+ Dock and two new monitors for my work office and while one monitor will go to 3840 x 2160, the other will not go above 1920 x 1080, UNLESS, I use a mini DisplayPort cable from the second monitor directly into the X1 Yoga (bypassing the OneLink+ Dock) HERE'S WHAT'S BAFFLING: I assumed it was the dock and so I brought the one from home to work and found I had the SAME problem, suggesting it was the second monitor.   But I exchanged the second monitor for a new one and still have the same problem.  The docks are running the most current firmware. I'll send a gift card to your favorite coffee house if you can solve this mystery.  Thanks!

Hello. I would like to resolve my problem with my E540 with OneLink Dock Pro.  When dock is connected to my notebook and I press power button, backlight of display lights up, but display stays black, no lenovo logo, nothing... Sometimes it shows logo but it freezes on this logo too. When I disconnect dock, notebook boots up normally. I tryed to disconnect monitor, keyboard and mouse from dock too, but it has no effect. This "freezing" seems to be happening only when dock is connected. On charger notebook boots up normally. And last note, this is happening only on "cold" start, restart works normaly. Problems started just after flashing new firmware to dock (v. 2.30) and BIOS update (v. 2.23). I do not know what made this problems, because I was doing these updates together. Thanks for any answer...

To Whom It May Concern, This has been a nightmare trying to get support for a 3-year Worldwide Warranty product that my company purchased a little over 1 year ago. The dock's DisplayPort seem to not be working properly. The monitor that is connected to it will randomly go blank. I've tried updating to the latest drivers and firmware for the dock. I tried switching monitors and switching cables. I've tried moving around USB devices to make sure it isn't interfering with operation. I've tried connecting the bare minimum to the devices and the problem persisted. I need the DisplayPort as I am running a dual monitor setup. I contacted the Customer Service line to get support. To my dismay, I was told my product was not under warranty and had to send in a copy of the invoice for my product. The support rep gave me an email address to their entitlement department and was told I will receive a response within 24-48 hours. It's been 96 hours now and no response. I try calling again to check on my status, but told the same thing and that they don't have the service case in their system. I hope some Lenovo rep can see this and provide some assistance.

In the last month I purchased a Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2G and the Thuderbolt USB C dock. Since the USB C cable that comes with the dock is too short to allow the dock on the right and laptop on the left (in laptop mode), I put the notebook in tent mode and all works fine---except... Everytime I power up from hibernate it starts beeping about once a second and does not stop. I have to disconnect from the dock, flip it to laptop mode (this is where the beeping stops), return it to tent mode, and then plug the dock back in. It seems that Lenovo, like everybody else, is rushing things to market with plans to fix bugs later (maybe). Any thoughts I how to stop the beeping?  The first time it happened I closed all the apps to reboot and it still was beeping. Thanks.

Hi, I have a ThinkPad Yoga S1 and a OneLink Pro Dock. My S1 has a Display Port Output and a Mini-HDMI output.The Dock has a Display Port Output and a DVI Output - it blocks the Display Port on the notebook itself. From the manuals I found the following: The Notebook supports:Your computer can support a maximum video resolution of up to 1920x1080 (with an external monitor connected to the mini HDMI connector) The Dock supports:  DisplayPort with maximum resolution 2560x1600*DVI-I with maximum 1920x1200 resolution and DVI to VGA adapter included in the box* Maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 supported if second monitor is attached to DVI output. See: https://support.lenovo.com/gt/en/solutions/pd029981 Question 1: Did I get this right, that the max. resolution on the mini-HDMI is 1920x1080 if the Display Port is not used?Question 2: If Question 1 is true, what happens if I use the Display Port (without dock)?Question 3: What's the max. resolution for my DP without the mini-HDMI connected and with it being connected?Question 4: What version is the DP?Question 5: Why can't I use the mini-HDMI if I'm already using DVI on the dock?Question 6: Could I use the DP on the dock + the mini-HDMI on my Yoga?Question 7: Is there a way to connect 2 external monitors and having a resultion better than 1920x1080 at least one?Question 8: If Question 7 is true, is there the same possibility for 2 monitors? I really hope you can answer me this.

I have recently purchased a X1 Yoga and OneLink + Dock.  All seemed fine at first, but a couple of weeks in, computer stopped charging with the dock and I lost my wired ethernet connection through the dock.  Got "network cable unplugged" message in network center.  I updated everything I had (drivers, firmware, etc) on both the pc and the dock.  Charging issue seems to be fixed, but still no ethernet.  I am getting a unknown USB error(set address failed) in device manager.  I can plug in the ethernet directly to the pc through a USB dongle and works great, but nothing through the dock. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   I have X1 Yoga (Type 20FQ, 20FR) Laptop (ThinkPad) Windows 10 pro

I have two laptops.  A Thinkpad and a Yoga 2 Pro.  I have the thinkpad connected to my peripherals through the onelink pro dock and it works great.  I can charge, display audio on a monitor, connect to the wired network.  I bought a USB to USB cable so that I could plug in my Yoga 2 Pro also since one of the USB's on the front of the dock charges.  I get no signal indicating that there is any connection.  I've looked up in the onelink user manual and it does not list the Yoga 2 pro as a compatible device.  I'm hoping that someone out that has found a way to make it work so that I don't need a different dock.  Any ideas?

Hello there, I like Onelink+ dock very much, but there is an annoying bug. I set up my monitor to turn off in 15 minutes. However, after 15 minutes the monitor keeps blanking or blinking and never turns off. If I connect the cable directly to my laptop, everything works perfectly. I have installed most up-to-date drivers and firmware, FYI. Do you have any solution or idea regarding how to fix it? Many thanks.

Hello Community, I have a new Yoga 260 with Win7 Enterprise x64.The issue I am having is the ethernet is not being recognized while the Onelink+ dock is plugged in. I have tried another dock and same results. I also have a separate ethernet adapter which I can use but plugs into the same port as the dock. When the ethernet adapter is plugged in I am able to use ethernet. So, the problem only exists when plugged into the dock. I looked through the BIOS but didn't see too much in the way of USB configuration changes. Also, in device manager the Onelink+ dock has a yeild sign and says cannot find the driver. I have tried to install the driver from OEM and it says the driver is already up to date. If anyone needs more info please let me know. Any help would earn you 1000 internets?

I have an X1 Yoga with a OneLink+ Dock. When the system goes to sleep, it won't wake. I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds to completely power off the X1, then restart it. I never have an issue when the OneLink+ is not connected. I updated the OneLink+'s firmware and all the drivers on the X1, but the problem remains. Anyone know how to fix this issue?
