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.

Hi! So I have my yoga for more than 2 years now and about a year ago my usbc decided to stop identifying any HDMI connetions via usbc hubs (containing usb ports and ethernet ports). all other ports function fine and in device manager i can see that my laptop recognizes the hub (general usb hub and usb2 billboard exists). i tried 3 different hubs and all are the same, HDMI doesnt work, usb and ethernet connections work fine. I tried those hubs on different laptops (friend`s yoga 910 and sister`s yoga 720) and hubs work perfectly (including HDMI connection) so it`s my laptop specifically.  I tried windows recovery, removing and reinstalling updates, drivers, BIOS and recently a whole computer format but nothing really worked. i tried lenovo vintage and diagnostics tools to no availe.the usbc connection works, so i doubt i have a hardware problem here. does anyone have any idea what might help?

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.

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...

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

Hi, I'm running Vista home premium 64 bit with the latest SP.

I just installed an old game (Sniper Elite) and after installation it asked for a reboot. I did this and got the message that windows couldn't start, this could be down to a change recently made etc etc.

It then said to fix it

1- insert windows disk and reboot
2- select language and click next
3- Choose repair my computer

I did this but when I clicked repair my computer it didn't show any OS in the box to repair! It just says "If you did not see your OS in the list, click load drivers to load drivers for your hard disk"

I have no idea what to do now, please help me!

Well, I installed the beta version of Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion a810n PC. It was good, but all my drivers were disabled. I went to revert back to Windows XP, since in the Boot menu it had the option now to revert to previous Windows. I went into it, and it opened the HP recovery. Now, I've had to do HP recovery twice in the past, but now, it looks way different. Now it just gives me options to go into a sort of command-promt type thing, where I pick a place and can implement commands. That's about all I can do. At one point, I typed in "FIXMBR", not knowing completely what it did. Now, when I start my computer back up, it goes into that same recovery type thing. How do I get back on Windows 7, or better yet, Windows XP? Also, I thought I should add, that in the restart thing, where it's the HP logo and at the bottom it says "press F10 for system recovery", the button no longer works, and I have to let it restart to go into recovery. I need the computer, ASAP, so the sooner you can help me, the better. Thank you in advance!

A:Urgent help needed

sounds like your os and recovery may be corrupted...Probably going to have to do a fresh install. If there is data you need on your computer about the only thing I can suggest(assuming you have another computer available) is to get an external hard drive enclosure. Put your drive in it, hook it up to the secondary machine and copy everything you need off of it.

i just f***** up my laptop.

I'm getting several virus detections from Windows Defender and on startup its telling me some .dll file is missing. I'm pretty sure that has to do with the trojan. I think it was named gugvatja.dll or something like that.

Also, I was playing a game, went full screen, and couldn't get back to normal res. Everytime I tried to go back to the half screen or whatever its called it wouldn't do anything. I put my res higher but it still isn't right. The res I needed is like in between what happened after I went full screen and what it is now.

I'm thinking of restoring unless you guys have any better ideas. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have Windows Xp. I ran into a problem last week with my computer and a nasty virus hit my system. (I forgot what it was) However, this thing would not even let me pull up my security software or download a new one under safe mode. Long story short... I did a system restore. Since then, my system is just not back to what it was. I did hit the backup file selection. All of my pictures are gone. My daughter is 9 and every single pic I had of her is gone, all of my coursework is gone, and I am just sick and don't know what to do.

I have tried to actually go back and restore manually but, it will not allow me to restore before the actual date that I did the restore.

Can someoone help me? Also, I have no sound coming from my speakers. I went into the control panel and it is not even picing up that there are speakers there. I plugged in my headphones to see if they would work and they are not working either. I cannot manually go into my control panel because it is not picking up anything there in the sound department.

Someone please help me retrieve my pictures and files... Please.... Can someone help me get my system back to normal??? Thank you somuch for anyone who can help me.

I'll do what it takes, please, just help!

My friend sent me a link (this is where it started) in msn. He actually wrote the message..so it wasn't the virus speaking. He said for me to open the link as it was something funny..when in actuality he wanted me to be a test subject to see what the link did...-.-

A:URGENT HELP needed! Thanks.
