I would like to connect my ThinkPad X1 Yoga 1st Gen, running Windows 10 to 2 external AOC E2752VH monitors to extend my desktop over the 2 monitors. Is it possible to use a 1 HDMI to 2 HDMI splitter to connect them? Or is it better/possible to use a 1 mini DisplayPort to 2 HDMI splitter?

Hi,
 
The way I read the X1YG1 base specs it supports two independent monitors.  Apologies, but I can't quite parse your post.  Does "apart from laptop screen" mean that you want 3 monitors total, or two and the laptops's display is off?
 
supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort;supports dual independent displays;

I have a Thinkpad T430 type 23474W4 and a Thinkpad mini dock series 3 type 4338-15U. I already have a Lenovo LEN LS2223wC monitor hooked up to it through one of the DVI ports. I have a a Lenovo LT1952p Monitor that I would like to use as a second external monitor. Both monitors work individually through either DVI or VGA.

Hi all, I have a Yoga 260 and two external monitors.  It does not seem to matter how I connect them, USB, HDMI, whatever the thing with a square on one end and USB on the other, directly or through a splicer I can not get the Yoga to recognize the third screen individually (yoga has one monitor, plus 2 external monitors = 3). I go to display settings but it just will not recognize the third monitor at all unless I use HDMI out of the laptop in to a splicer then 2 HDMIs out and in that case I only get duplicates on the two external screens. Any suggestions about the best way to set up... as in "it worked for me when I connected USB to one monitor, then daisy chained that to a second one" or "it worked for me when I HDMI to one screen and USB to a second" etc... Thank you

I have a ThinkPad S1 yoga bought in Dec 2013. I have being using the mini hdmi to work of 1 external 1080p monitor these last few years and it has worked fine. I now want to add a new second 1440 x 2560 along side my 1080 x 1920 monitor for a dual monitor set up. (Mostly for spreadsheets, emails, web browsing etc.) I do not mind if one of these duplicates my laptop screen. I was going to get the onelink dock to enable me to do this however I am not sure if it will work. I know the resolution with dual monitors running off the dock is limited at 1200p. What I now want to do is use the mini hdmi on my laptop for one monitor and the onelink dock for the other, however I want to be sure it will work before I go and buy the monitor and dock. Alternatively I could buy an USB 3.0 to hdmi adapted to run the 1080 monitor and a usb hub for the extra usb's I will need. (I think the dock will use less processing power and would be a slicker set up so I imagine it would be better?) You?re  help would be appreciated as I have read there can be issues trying to get higher resolution monitors to work.

I have recently received an upgrade laptop at work. On my previous laptop (ThinkPad, unsure of model), I was able to connect one external display monitor directly to the VGA port on the laptop and an additional external diplay monitor to the ThinkPad Pro Dock station VGA port. I prefered to use these two screens with my laptop closed on the docking station, but could also open the laptop on the dock and have a third screen available. ISSUE: With my new ThinkPad (T440) there is no VGA port on the laptop. I have purchased a simple HDMI to VGA Converter Adapter - see link:https://www.amazon.ca/VicTsing-Gold-plated-Converter-Ultrabook-Devices-Black/dp/B016LVT51G/ref=sr_1_...   I am using the same ThinkPad Pro Dock station as with my previous laptop. With my new T440 I am able to work with my laptop open or closed on the docking station with one external display plugged into the docking station. I am also able to work with one external display plugged directly into my laptop using the VGA to HDMI converter adapter.  ISSUE 2: The laptop will not recognize when both screens are plugged in at the same time, but they each work when I have only one plugged in either to the dock or directly to the laptop. PLEASE HELP!!

Hello all, As the Yoga 720 15'' has only one Thunderbolt port, with no other ports for connecting more displays, I'm looking for a solution for connecting two monitors through this single port. The problem is that the Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapters do not seem to be working on this laptop for some reason according to threads on this forum. (although it has the appropriate hardware I suppose?)I saw a solution using the Lenovo Thunderbolt Dock, but it's quite expensive... I thought to myself: suppose I have two monitors that supported DisplayPort daisy chaining, could I use this ability and connect them to the laptop? Connecting one monitor directly to the laptop, and then connecting the other monitor to the first one using daisy chaining. Like so:Yoga -> Thunderbolt to DispalyPort adapter -> Monitor 1 -> DisplayPort -> Monitor 2.  I couldn't find any info about this method (only that it is possible on the XPS 15 which also has Thunderbot with two lanes only...)  Have someone already tried this method? Or could try it? (pretty please... )Or could at least tell me if it is possible? I'm really looking forward to buying this laptop and this is the main reason that stops me...  Note: I am aware about the bandwith limitations. I plan to use only two 2K displays. Thank you!

When I boot up without a connection to an external monitor I experience some display issues with text sizing of certain objects within certain applications (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio).  In these applications parts of the User Interface display perfectly.   Other parts of the same application will have vastly oversized objects and text.  And, in another application the text is greatly undersized in certain portions of this app. When I boot up while connected to an external monitor everything displays perfectly on the external monitor.   This happens without making any changes whatsoever to system display setting or application configuration settings.  If I disconnect the external monitor the X1's internal monitor still displays everything perfectly.   But if restart while disconnected from an external monitor I experience the same display issues as described in the 1st paragraph. I don't think this problem was always there, but  I cannot say for sure.  It just got so annoying that I finally decided to write to the forum today.   I would guess that the problem has been this way for 1-2 months. The Lenovo System Update app tells me that everything is up to date.    Is there some setting or perhaps driver that needs to change? Tim

A:How to connect 2 Monitors with Thinkpad W530 ?

Are you trying to connect your second external monitor using a cable with VGA at one end and DP at the other end, with the VGA end connected to the VGA connector on the W530?  NOT POSSSIBLE.  You are actually using that cable in the opposite way for which it was designed, which is to go FROM A DP CONNECTOR ON THE COMPUTER TO A VGA CONNECTOR ON THE MONITOR.
 
DisplayPort target monitor connectors are only usable with a DP source connector on the PC.  DP source is very flexible, being able to support a DP, HDMI, DVI or VGA connector on the monitor.  That's why you find all four 2-ended cable types for sale.  But you have to use the DP end on the PC in order to support DP, HDMI, DVI or VGA target connector on the monitor.
 
But a DP target on the monitor can ONLY be handled by a DP source on the PC.  You can't connect it to the VGA connector on the W530.
 
Sorry... you can't use two external monitors both of which are connected through DP.  Only one on the W530.  You'll have to use a monitor supporting a VGA connection if you must use a second external monitor.
 
Newer laptops (e.g. P5x/P7x) have DP and HDMI, which would provide additional flexibility for connecting two external monitors with a digital connection (i.e. not analog VGA).

Hi, I'd like to add a couple of external monitors to my Yoga 2 Pro, specifically the Dell u2515h model. This has dvi and hdmi in and displays at 2560x1440. Will the micro hdmi drive 2560x1440? How would I get the second external monitor connected? I've seen some usb3 - hdmi connectors but most seem to top out at 1920x1080.  How do do I get this to work without spending a fortune on connectors- I'd rather spend the money on getting a better set of monitors.  Should i I give up on the idea of dual 2560x1440? Should I go for two u2414h monitors, which would give 1920x1080 on each screen?  Thanks, Ian Brown 

A:Yoga 2 Pro, external monitors

AFAIK the Yoga 2 Pro's built-in HDMI is version 1.4, which should be able to output 2560x1440 at 60Hz.As for a second monitor, you can look into a USB 3 to HDMI DisplayLink solution. Some of these support up to 4K. The biggest caveat with a USB solution is that the CPU will be under a fair amount of strain as it must handle the encoding of the video stream. This also means that while you can probably output 60Hz office and productivity work over the USB, any fullscreen games/videos will be very choppy.

A:Thinkpad P52S Ultra Dock and 3 External Monitors

As stayed in PSREF, P52s supports up to three independent displays. Laptop's screen includes in this limit, meaning you can use two external displays at that time. When you close the lid, you can use three external displays. To use more, you'll need some sort of USB adapter to increase such a limit. Regarding other question, you can't disable Intel GPU - it's always active and it's always controls screen output. NVIDIA's dGPU can be configured to be used in selected applications, making them to work with higher performance. P52 and P72 for sure have an ability to disable Intel iGPU, giving the control of screen output to dGPU. Probably P1 and/or X1 Extreme have the same feature too.

Both monitors are working well and available when the laptop lid is closed. The issue is that after the screen saver period completes, the laptop powers down completely. I'd like it to just shut off the screen and resume on mouse movement.

The laptop is used with external monitors when it's plugged in -- and the power settings are:

Screensaver starts after 10 minutes

My X1 Yoga is always closed when I'm at home so that I'm just using the external monitors whereas 1 of them acts as the system display.In this case, could I attach a third external monitor to the VGA port of the docking station? Many thanks in advance.

I have it connected to two external monitors via USB-C and DELL WD15 dock. Laptop screen is ON as well, so I have all 3 screens in extended mode.The problem is it runs very slow, websites open slowly and simple youtube video takes up to 50% of CPU... I have enabled "Show kernel times" and looks like most of CPU time is taken by kernel on all 4 logical cores.The laptop is running Windows 10 Pro with 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, i5-7300U CPU. How do I debug this?

I bought myself a Yoga 920 for my Christmas B'day and love it so far. Now I want to buy it things. I am a retired engineer, but all this new-fangled tech jargon has got me off kilter. I've been reading a lot of confusing things so I thought you guys might help me out if I ask nice. Pretty please. I want to buy my new baby a 27-inch external monitor:1) Does the 920 accept an external monitor's touch input? That would be too cool to hope for.2) Is there an external USB3 dock for the 920 hookup? Or does one have to wing it with an HDMI cable?3) What is this auto connect feature for external monitors that Win10 mentions? Does the Yoga have it and is it now standard on most modern monitors? Thank you for any info you got.

I currently have a T430 which is an absolute beast and solid as a rock. However, it is a nightmare for external monitors. I have a Lenovo LEN LS2223wC monitor and a Lenovo LT1952p monitor that I would like to use as external monitors. Both monitors run on HD 4000. I run Windows 10 operating system.  I don't need the newest model. Just something solid and dependable. If it has the option of eventually doing three monitors that would just be icing on the cake (but not required).  Does anyone have any ideas for laptops that might fit these specs as well as docks to go with them?  Thanks

My work purchased a Yoga 900-13ISK and two external monitors with HDMI and the traditional VGA inputs. I would like to connect the machine so I can run two external monitors simultaneously when I'm working from home. The best solution I have found is the type c adapter which will allow my to run one external monitor only. Does anyone have any guidance for setting up the machine to run two external monitors simultaneously? Thanks!

A:Yoga 900 - setting up dual external monitors?

Upon reading articles online about the Yoga 900, it does support dual monitors (HDMI or Display port), but you'll need a USB-C adapter. Does your USB C adapter have two display options on it?

My Yoga 710 laptop puts my external monitors to sleep once I connect them with a cable and adapter.  Each external monitor I have tried recognizes they are being plugged into a computer, because its display window will change from "no cable/computer detected" to "monitor is going to sleep".  The laptop, however, stopped recognizing that it is being plugged into an external monitor.  In addition to trying different monitors, two different microHDMI adapters, and three different cables.  I have worked with Microsoft, Lenovo, and Geek Squad to update the drivers and replace the motherboard.  Is anyone else experiencing this? Any suggestions?  This error began soon after I updated the laptop's drivers for a problem it had communicating with my wireless printer.

What resolutions and refresh rates are supported for external monitors (HDMI) on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro i7 (59428032) Specifically, I'm looking at the Samsung 28" 4K Ultra HD Widescreen Monitor (U28D590D) [3840 x 2160] I've hooked up to my HP w2408h monitor (1920x1200) with mixed results (mostly unacceptable).  Most items (icons, images) appear quite large and cropped.  For some applications (such as the View/trim preview window in GoPro Studio) appear to be cropped to about 1/4 of the image (if you imagine an image split into 4 quadrents, only the top left is visible). I had hoped that I could use the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro both as an extremely portable notebook and a desktop (when connected to an external monitor, keyboard & mouse).  I'm beginning to doubt that this will work.

A:Supported external monitors on Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

While i can't offer any insight on a 4K monitor as i dont have one myself, I can tell you that is works perfectly on a 25" monitor at 1920x1080, and everything looks perfect, exactly as it is when connected to my desktop. I'd suggest that after connecting the external monitor you enter the resolution settings, make sure the second monitor is set as 'Extended monitor' and that the resolution for it is set to its native resolution. Aside from that, if you're working with the Yoga's native resolution (3200x1800), then you probably have the DPI set to 200%, which will also affect external monitors, making some things look pretty bad. There is no magic solution for this case, either drop the resolution and lower the DPI, or.... as much as i hate to say it... get used to it... sorry. I personally dropped the resolution on my yoga and lowered the DPI, so i'm good both with the yoga screen and my external monitor when at home.
