Q: Yoga 910 HDMI and VGA Dongles USB Type-C - Urgent Help Needed.

Hi,I'm a new Yoga 910 owner and I have to say I'm loving it so far, but I'm a speaker an trainer and I need to connect it to external dislays and projectors.I have tried several dongles and I cannot find one that works. I'm trying to find USB-C dongle that let me connect to an external HDMI and VGA Monitor or Projector. Are there any other brands of adapters that are known working for HDMI 2.0 and regular VGA?

Preferred Solution: Yoga 910 HDMI and VGA Dongles USB Type-C - Urgent Help Needed.

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.)


I'm trying to find USB-C dongles that let me connect to an external 4K HDMI monitor and via VGA. I got the Club3D USB to HDMI 2.0 dongle which reviews on Amazon said works work the Yoga 900. However, on my 910 it does NOT function. Are there any other brands of adapters that are known working for HDMI 2.0 and regular VGA?

A:yoga 900... USB Type-C to HDMI Adapter

Hello and welcome,
If you mean HDMI, I realized I hadn't ever checked if the sound works.  Just plugged it into my Samsung TV.  Got a movie playing now and sound works fine.
This is the adapter I'm using.  There are others but this one is working for me.

I fought this problem all day and I think I have it narrowed down. System is Lenovo Yoga 900 i7 with Windows 10 with all latest updates. Application is Citrix Receiver 4.5. When using Quickbooks with the Citrix Receiver, mouse clicks are disabled/not recognized.  All keyboard inputs still work, the mouse arrow tracks correctly, but mouse clicks seem to be ignored.  This behavior occurs when booting to dual monitor setup with HDMI adapter in the USB Type-C port; booting to single monitor (Yoga), then plugging the HDMIR adapter in the USB Type-C port.  The only resolution is to boot to single monitor (Yoga) and work in single monitor mode exclusively.  I am using the USB Type-C to HDMI adaptor purchased from Lenovo.  This occurs with the Yoga trackpad AND occurs with my USB wireless mouse. Also note with native Windows applications, the mouse works fine with both  monitors connected and active. I really bought the HDMI adaptor to use two monitor with the Citrix Receiver.  I have tried to Google this problem, but I'm unable to find a Citrix Receiver support site/forum that would be appropriate for this question. Any advice appreciated.

Having an issue with my X1 Yoga  riinning Win10 64-bit and all firmware & drivers are up to date. I often plug in an HDMI screen to my machine and when I do and step away for a few mins the screen goes blank to save power etc. When I return and click these or hit a key the backlight on the laptop comes back on but no image is displayed on either the laptop nor the HDMI monitor. If I unplug the HDMI cable then the laptop screen comes back perfectly and then I can plug the HDMI back in and get the image back on my larger monitor. This seems much different issue then the "blank screen" I read up on and appears to be a detecing from sleep state issue in the driver etc. Anyone else have this? Any fixes for this as I'm plugging the HDMI in/out/in 5 times a day or more... This never occured in the past so appears to be an update issue.

Hi all, I got today Lenovo S510 model: 10KW005NAX I want to get a cable or adapter to connect Displayport to HDMI 1080p LCD I have from before There seem to be passive and active converters, what I understood from online is that if I have DP++ PC I can get a passive converter or else I need an active converter. I don't know if cables can be active and passive too?For example: Amazon linkSo the description says source can be DP or DP++, so it has a chip inside it? so it's active? So... can anyone tell me what is my displayport type (Lenovo S510) ? and maybe shed some light on what I need to get clear picture to HDMI in? Appreciate your help

I purchased an external monitor on Friday.  It worked on Friday and Saturday. Sunday when I booted up, the external monitor no longer worked. The history appears to show an automatic update occurred overnight.  I was running Windows 8.1.  I upgraded to 10.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the intel video driver, I reinstalled the chipset driver.  I have trimmed the micro HDMI cord as suggested in one of the posts.  I have seen enough posts on the various boards to know my issue does not seem to be an isolated case... but I haven't been able to find an explanation of the cause or a reliable solution.  Any help is appreciated.

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

Bought a USB C to HDMI adapter. Works on three different monitors with both a (7th gen) Razer Blade Stealth and a Yoga 900 Signature Edition but not a brand new Yoga 910 (with UHD panel.) Using the same cable for all; it's HDMI 2.0 just in case. All drivers, BIOS, firmware is up to date on the 910. Validated basic USB functionality on the 910 port with a USB C to A adapter (i.e. USB headphones work just fine.)  Tried both the Lenovo graphics drivers and the most up to date generic Intel graphics drivers; (neither work so I reverted back to Lenovo drivers.) I'd like to get 4k working eventually but right now not even 1080p output to external is working. Tried all display scaling options. In the Intel HD Graphics control panel, the device does seem to recognize the model of the external monitor, but it's not outputting anything (i.e. when I switch to clone or extended desktop, it immediately sets itself back to single display mode.) Any ideas? Thank you!

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

I have an XPS 12 9250 with an external Dell Adapter USB Type C to HDMI/VGA/Ethernet/USB 470-ABQN.  This adapter is working for Ethernet and VGA, but the USB port is not working.  I suspect that I need the correct drivers installed.  When I plug in my windows phone or my android phone, both devices show that they are charging, but windows 10 does not indicate that it sees the devices.  If I plug in an external keyboard to the adapter's USB port, windows 10 does not react, and the keyboard lights do not come on (keyboard works fine on 2 other computers).
So, I'm pretty sure I've installed all the latest drivers that are listed on support.dell.com for the xps 12 9250, but it's hard to tell as there seem to be scores of them.
Is anyone else having this problem?  Can anyone tell me which specific drivers I need to get USB working?  Thank you

Got a Lenovo Yoga 920 earlier this week. Plugged my USB C to HDMI adapter in and it worked for a few minutes and than stopped working.It is now identifying as a USB 2.0 Billboard Device which I belive means it isn?t configuring Displayport Alternative Mode properly. Here?s what I?ve tried:Hitting Windows ? P to change project mode.Going into display settings and detect display.Checking for Updating graphics driver, USB drivers, check for updates.Using a different USB C to HDMI adapter, a different TV, and a different cable.Booting to safe mode with no services running.Any thoughts for re-configuring the driver?

I've read a lot of reviews for USB C to HDMI adapters on Amazon, and I can't seem to find a consensus on which ones will work with the Lenovo 720.  I see there is an official Lenovo adapter, but it is double the price of most of the other adapters.  There are other adapters that specifically say that they don't work with the Lenovo 720.  Does anyone have first hand experience with a good adapter that is plug and play?  I saw someone else talking about adjusting the deep colour setting (or something like that) on their monitor to get the adapter to work.  I don't want to have to do anything like that.

Has anyone seen the Yoga S1 output audio through the mini HDMI port?  I see it listed as a possible output in "sound", but it just says "not connected".  Not sure if it is my TV, my laptop, or the HDMI to mini HDMI cable I'm using. 


Go to Solution.

A:Yoga S1 HDMI Audio

Hi Brillat,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with No Audio coming from TV when connected to Lenovo Yoga S1.

Machine with discrete graphic card - just choose NVidia HD audio as playback device after connecting your display.
Machine with integrated graphic card - the trick is to go to Control Panel > Sound control panel > Right click on your TV > Select 'Set as Default Device'.  Then you should start hearing audio out from the TV speakers, and the green sound volume meter beside the TV in the Sound Control Panel should start responding to the audio you're playing.

Hope this helps.
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hi Guys, I hope to God that you's can help.

Heres the story, my computer out of the blue has just stopped loading. I will describe what is happening:
I will turn on the computer and it will load normally past all the BIOS stuff - then it will begin a 'chkdsk c:' saying that it needs to check this 'NTFS' file for consistancy.
It is always succesful with this check and then moves onto the the classic windows xp loading screen. That works fine then, BANG, it stops loading.... I don't think it is freezing as I can still move the mouse.
If I leave it for long enough it will come up with a diologue box saying something along the lines of 'Windows needs to be activated'. And this does not allow me to get past this blue laoding screen.
I then restart the comp, and it just goes through the same process.
Other info:
I CANNOT access SAFE MODE! It takes me to a log in menu saying my name, Phil and Administrator and if I click any of them I encounter this message 'Windows needs to be activated'.
I checked my BIOS page and posted the info on another forum (which wasn't too helpful if I do say so myself) and they said nothing with out of the ordinary with temperature etc.
If this helps, I did the day before these problems started when I turned on my comp it said there was no keyboard plugged in, this was a USB keyboard so I just swapped it for a old keyboard which wored a treat.
Also I had some minor problems with my monitor rando... Read more

Dear Forum Members,
My computer seems to be heavily infested with something very unpleasant.  A lot (but not all) my of software is not working, or cannot be opened (e.g. Outlook) or comes up with the message "the item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed you may not have the appropriate permission"  I have looked at various on-line sites to find a solution, but haven't found much that addresses this problem specifically.  The things I have tried didn't deliver the desired help.  Any ideas, anyone ???  You'll have my eternal gratitude if this can be solved without major surgery (like re-installing my Windows 7).  Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?  Or would Windows 10 become similarly infected with this bug?
By the way - this is a general question - if I were to upgrade, would I loose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process?
Thank you for reading thus far.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Kind regards - AndreasO

A:Urgent help needed

"...Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?"  Upgrading to Windows 10 with your current OS having problems will probably not help solve those problems, such might simply "transfer" to your new OS.
"...if I were to upgrade, would I lose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process..."
If the current OS is in good working order, then an upgrade normally does not do away with installed programs -- unless you make a few wrong choices during the upgrade/install process.  Documents - toss up, many have had no problems, some have had a few problems.
** After everything is fixed within your current OS -- before upgrading, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two external HDs **

2. I install iTunes (64-bit), and it never opens.

What DLL does it say you're missing? And check the event log, application log specifically to see if that sheds any light on the itunes issue.

Does sound a bit high, but it could always be a faulty temp sensor. The CPU and M/B temps sound ok though.

If it has always been that high and your system aint crashing then you should be alright (just out of intrest have you overclocked at all?)
