Supported external monitors on Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

Q: Supported external monitors on Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

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.

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.

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.

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;

As the current BIOS stands, OS installers - for me specifically, Fedora Workstation - can't see any internal drives. I've read that this is an issue that can be solved easilly with an update to the BIOS, hopefully lenovo will realize how silly this is and fix it.   Until Lenovo makes a change, no linux based OS can be used with this laptop.

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.

Hi, I have looked elsewhere at other similar posts which don't seem to have been satisfactorily answered. I want to connect two external monitors to my 520 to use in extended display mode. The first monitor is connected directly via the hdmi port on the 520 and is running as monitor 2. The second monitor is connected to the HDMI port in a Hootoo USB-C hub and card reader (model HT-UC008) which is connected to the USB-C port on the 520. The power light on the Hootoo is on but this screen is not detectable.  I have reached out to Hootoo support in case there are drivers to download - their site is pretty shabby - but would like to find out more from Lenovo on this matter. Thank you, Thomas

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.

So I read through a few threads and haven?t seen anything overly promising so I thought I?d ask.  Im trying to help a friend who started a new job. They gave him a Yoga730 15IWL.  He has no dock for it (and I wasn?t sure if the even made one for it).  The reviews I read about some of the recents docks working with multiple monitors didn?t instillConfidence.  He wants to run 3 monitors concurrently. I see there?s an hdmi port and a believe a display port. Worst case I?d like to get him up and running with 2 if that?s easiest. I contemplated getting an hdmi splitter but I thought that would only show the same screen to multiple monitors and not split the across all three. Any guidance/suggestions welcome.  Thanks

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.

I'm unable to get my X1 Yoga to detect external monitors when plugged into the OneLink+ dock. This started occuring when my computer upgraded to the creators update. I thought I found a thread of others with the same issue (linked below), but it turns out I was waiting for a fix that didn't apply to me. I'm super frustrated right now. Stuff I've tried so far.1. Updated all drivers using Lenovo Service Bridge (even optional drivers)2. Installed the Fall Creators update preview (after being told it would fix the issue)3. Completely reinstalled Windows4. A Single VGA monitor5. A Single Display Port Monitor6. 6 different cables At this point I'm convinced there's an issue with the dock. There's a firmware update available for it, but you can't install it unless it is actively connected to a monitor (go figure).  When attempting to install, I get the code 255 "Can't connect to Synaptics VMMxxxx DP hub IC" If anyone has any sugestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. It used to work perfectly, then about the time I installed the creators update it started getting flaky, now I can't get it to work at all. Previous thread I was following. Note that I'm linking to a post where they show the dock working (annoying).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/Windows-10-creator-update-breaks-Lenovo-...

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.

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!

This has happened with multiple makes and models of monitors and also laptops, even the connections are different in some cases whether it be VGA, VGA to Mini display, HDMI, or HDMI to Mini display. The only similarity of all the occurances is 2 monitors were used while this happened. Each time I've replaced all the adapters and cords to see if that would fix it. The only thing that seems to fix it, is to switch the monitor out with another one. This happened after the founders update for Windows. All PC's are using Windows 10 64 bit.

However, when I used a j5create adapter to plug two of the same Dell monitors in, they're is a visual difference between the two. I'm not familar enough to know if it's color/contrast/brightness/etc, but am confused as to why two of the exact same monitors would require me to set up a custom color profile to work. Shouldn't it be as straight foward as plugging the identical monitors in and expecting the same visual result between the two?

I understand that I can only use 2 display ports to do this so I intent to add a USB32DPPRO to achieve this, however my question is will they all run @ 60Hz. I have found this link which confirms I can run 2 displays at the resolution I'm after, but it does not mention anything about the refresh rate. https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/migr-76767.  I'm just a little confisued as when you start looking at refresh rates on 4K for example, it says you can only run 1 screen @ 60Hz and if you add another screen the refresh rate drops to 30Hz for both. This is when used with the ThinkPad Workstation Dock 230W. More information here https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/acc100247. If anybody could help demistify this that would be great! I am using a NVIDIA Quardo K1000M as my GPU and the Inter(R) HD Graphics 4000 for the onbaord graphics. It's probably worth nothing that if I can get all 3 monitors to run @ 60Hz and 2560x1440 I would not need to use the laptop screen... Read more
