Q: How to connect an external Monitor to YOGA 2 Pro from year 2014

I have a Yoga 2 Pro from 2014. The Original OS was Windows 8.1. I updated it to Windows 10. If I press the F10 Button it looks for a wireless device. If I look at the display setting, the setting is fixed for built in Monitor. I have tried to connect the external monitor through the micro HDMI interface. Can I use a docking station to solve the problem? Can anybody help me.Tjien

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 have a Yoga 11s that started having hdmi connection issues about a year ago and has recently quit connecting to an external monitor via HDMI completely. We tried upgrading to Windows 10 to see if that would overwrite any software issues - no luck. The HDMI port actually appears loose. I did an extensive search of the forum and found posts that recommended cutting down the rubber around the base of the hdmi cord - tried that and at least I had a little activitiy - in the upper right hand corner of the external monitor up popped a box that says DVI then VGA then HDMI - but then says No Signal. Tried the graphics card update recommended on a post from long time ago and a popup indicated I had a newer version already installed. I have taken it to a laptop repair place - said they couldn't get parts from Lenovo. I found an "authorized" Lenovo repair shop locally - when I called they said they only work on business machines Called Lenovo and they told me to take it to Best Buy - however since I purchased this directly from Lenovo, Best Buy said they can't work on it. I would rather not send it into Lenovo because they tried to charge my hubby hundreds of dollars when his 15 day brand new laptop quit working, claiming damage - luckily extensive pictures taken and dated prior to sending it in thwarted that attempt at extortion. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to be able to do presentations and work remotely with this so it is no... Read more

Hello! When I connect my Yoga 900 laptop to my Samsung external monitor using a USB-C/HDMI adapter, the laptop screen flashes black and the external screen does nothing. Between the flashes I can see my desktop background goes blue and every program/file that is open begins popping up and closing on repeat. Nothing ever shows on the external monitor. The only fix is to unplug the two, but if I let the laptop flash for more than about a minute it eventually goes black. When this happens, unplugging it from the monitor does nothing and it has to be manually restarted using the side button. As noted in other forum solutions, I manually updated all video and chip drivers.I have tested the monitor's HDMI port, the Yoga 900's USB-C port, and the HDMI cable itself. I have also tried a different brand of USB-C adapter. Pressing Windows + P doesn't seem to do much, as I can see the menu between the flashes and click "expand" but nothing happens. Any idea what else I can do? Thank you.

Whatever you buy next, the $100 or so you'll spend on a 3-year warranty is a good investment. You won't find the situation any different with any other manufacturer - all notebooks regardless of the name on the outside are designed and built by the same small pool of manufacturers, mostly based in Taiwan.  Just the top three of them supply most of the market.

I believe the monitor has quiet a few inputs however I am not 100% sure which lead to get to connect them both and which port I use on the Dell Laptop.

I am thinking of getting the Yoga 3, and occasionaly I would like to use an external monitor. My question is, can I put the yoga in kind of a shallow tent mode, and still use the keyboard? I'm guessing the keyboard and trackpad are disabled when you flip the thing into tablet mode, but what about in tent? SO, from the closed position, I am hoping to open it about 200 degrees or so, or anything slightly greater than having it lay flat at 180 degrees. Will this work? Thanks!

A:Using yoga 3 as a keyboard with external monitor

No, when your are over 180°, the KB and pad are disabled. But you can buy bluetooth KB and mouse.. What you want to do is weird, what's the point of plug an other screen if you do not see the first one ? TV ?

Connect one screen using the HDMI port, and the second using Lenovo USB-C to HDMI Adapter then connecting the second using hdmi cable -  in this case only the monitor connected directly using the hdmi (without the adapter) actually worked. 2. Using Lenovo Thinkpad USB-C dock  connected to the USB-C port and connecting the dock to the screens using Displayport-  in this case none of the monitor worked. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?  I also tried to update the computer's BIOS but it didn't helped. Thanks!

In a strange twist Lenovo decided not to include a dedicated display port with the 720 13". The USB-C Thunderbolt port can be used as a displayport, but then, obviously, can't be used as a thunderbolt 3 port.I have a $800 dollar thunderbolt 3 card. What I'd like to do is get video out of my laptop to a bigger monitor so I can do work.I tried a USB-3 docking station and it was a nightmare.Is there any way I can use an external docking port to access the displayport in my laptop AND connect my thunderbolt 3 soundcard?I erroneously assumed that all this new technology would enable me to use multiple displays like on my old desktop computer, but what I'm finding is the USB3 solution introduced tons of lag, when it worked at all, and slowed down my computer.If anyone has any solutions, please let me know.

I just bought myself a very nice 22inch Dell E2209WF monitor. I connected it with a VGA cable to my USB3 connector and nothing. So I went down to PC World and tried the same with several monitors and nothing. So I tried a micro HDMI to several monitors and still nothing. I'm running Windows 10. Am I missing something very basic ? I've always assumed the Yoga 2 11 could be connected to an external monitor. 

A:Connecting a Yoga 2 11 to an external monitor

Hi, welcome.
 
It shouldn't be hard to connect an external monitor to a laptop. What kind of port does it has? mini DP? HDMI?
 
What I had see on other cases is that some cables and adapters may produce some problems. So trying different ones that you may have arround, or connecting the laptop to a near by TV just to be sure it is not also the monitor.
 
My only ideas are:
1) Try Win+P key combination to be sure that you ar extending or duplicating the screen with the secondary monitor.
 
2) From the Yoga 2 11 support site, try update the video driver and see if something improves.
 
Give it a try to see if something works.

Yoga 730-13IKB, Type 81CT, Windows 10, 64-bit Before I purchase an expensive external monitor, like HP's Z27 4K monitor, I'd like to find documentation on the Yoga series support for external monitors, and the potential for the laptop to also be charging, all from that single cable.  Most likely, the arrangement would be using a single USB port to a hub that provides HDMI or DP -- can the Yoga deliver 4K (or lesser QHD), at 60Hz? After about 20 minutes of searching and reading user manuals, 620 integrated graphics reference material, and whether HDR is supported and whether HDCP 2.2 is provided.... sigh. I'm looking for a document written for an end user that accounts for the inherent capabilities of the integrated graphics chipset and OS, the limitations of the USB 3.0 Type-C interface, and describes what range of resolutions can be driven.  If the UBS hub makes a difference, then at least tackle part of that problem with a paragraph of "what to look for" in a USB hub, or "we've tested with the following," in order to successfully drive (and possibly receive laptop charging) from high resolution external monitors.  Use the HP Z27 4K monitor as an example.

You might also need to enable an external display in Settings > System > Display.  But to my knowledge, Lenovo USB-C ports aren't Thunderbolt, so some things that work well on an Apple won't on anything else.

Hi xenocider , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As this was also discussed on this thread. 
Yoga 900 USB Type C is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible 
 
As per article: 


The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_ug_en_201509.pdf)
Adding to the above:  Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack. 
 
Articles for reviews: 
USB 3.1 Type-C port. There are no indications that this is a Gen. 2 Type-C port (10 Gbps) with Thunderbolt capability 
Lenovo Yoga 900 reviews 

 

As I can see , although it is not possible at the moment future upgrades may happen.
Hope this answered your query.

Hi,

I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 900 to replace an older Lenovo Thinkpad. I use two laptops with the same peripherals, so I run an external monitor (Dell Ultrasharp 29" monitor), a keyboard, and a mouse into a Display Link Docking Station. I then use a IOGear switch to toggle between the two laptops. The new Lenovo Yoga laptop picks up the keyboard and mouse, but does not identify the external monitor. Below are details on the new laptop.

? 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6500U Processor (2.50GHz 1600MHz 4MB)
? Windows 10 Home 64
? Intel® HD Graphics 520 (graphics card)
My other laptop is an HP ProBook running Windows 7 Professional. All of the peripherals work fine using the docking station and switch (as did the old Lenovo Thinkpad). The only exception is that in my previous configuration, the monitor would periodically not connect with the new laptop when I used the switch, and I would need to restart in order for the monitor to work with the latpop I had selected on the switch. The mouse and keyboard did not have this problem.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Just received a new X1 Yoga 2nd gen laptop with a USB-C dock (40A90090US) and I'm trying to run a three monitor setup.  Tried with the two built in display port connections and the laptop screen, but that's not working.  Currently have it running with one display port, the laptop screen, and the HDMI port on the laptop, but that's not ideal, having to plug in two cables.  I'd prefer to not use the VGA port, but would that be the only way to have two active external monitors coming from the dock in addition to the laptop screen?  Other option is that I could probably scrounge a third monitor, leave the laptop closed and run three monitors off the dock, though as near as I can tell, that dock doesn't support three live monitors.  Looks like I'd need to upgrade to the thunderbolt dock (40AC0135xx) for that to work, is that correct? Thanks for any input...

I am writing here to help others, but also because there is a power cycling order in which it does not work, which I would like to know if someone knows what it is. If I play with it enough, I get back to making it work again, but have not figured out the order of rebooting, connecting and disconnecting cables where it consistently works. Power delivery is always working through the cable, the monitor extension is what I have to play to get it working. OK, so here are the steps I need to get these to to work together: 1 - After unboxing Yoga 920, run windows update and reboot several times until it says there is nothing else to update. (windows 10) 2 - Used Google Chrome as Web browser 3 - Go onto LG website to update Drivers/Software:http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-43UD79-B#manuals43UD79 Win10 R3 Driver LG_ULTRA_HD.zip 36K[Windows] OnScreen Control - version 2.82 Win_OSC_2.82.zip 111138K 4 - Purchase USB-C to USB-C CableThis one worked for me :https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L0F6IK4[USB-IF Certified] Cable Matters USB 3.1 Type-C (10 Gbps) Gen 2 Cable with 4K Video & Po...

RELEVANCY SCORE 58.4

Hi all, My laptop is a Yoga 510-14ISK, which has an Intel HD Graphics 520 (graphics unit integrated with the Skylake processor) and an AMD Radeon R5 M330 as the PCI-E card. My issue is supporting the full resolution of my external monitor, a BenQ FP241W, which has a native resolution of 1920x1200. The max resolution offered by any of the tools (Windows, Intel and AMD) is 1920x1080. This leaves black bars on the top and bottom of the monitor, which is not only wasted space, but is contributing to the burn-in of my eight-year-old-but-still-working-as-new monitor. I originally connected the laptop via a Thinkpad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock, which uses USB-C from the laptop and HDMI to the monitor. I discovered, however, that the Intel driver would not detect the monitor this way, or at least it wouldn't list it. The monitor is now plugged directly to the laptop via HDMI. I assume this is a driver issue, since these modern graphics cards should easily support 1920x1200. If it is, it isn't trivial to solve; I spent hours yesterday trying various things:Exploring the display configurations in Windows 10 (64 bit), the Intel Graphics Control Panel (IGCP), and the Radeon Settings tool. Strangely enough, the latter does not show a ?Display? category, which, judging from online screenshots, normally should be there (see attached screenshot). The max I ever get listed is 1920x1080. Attempting to enter a custom resolution of 1920x1200 at 60p in the IGCP gives an error, ?T... Read more
