Yoga 300 Issues With External Display

Q: Yoga 300 Issues With External Display

Hi all I have a Yoga 300 laptop running Windows 10. I notice that I can connect to some projectors via HDMI only to broadcast power points presentations in Presentation / Preview mode. I cannot see to broadcast my screen (a web page for example). I have just acquired a new projector and cannot display anything at all to it. Any thoughts to correct this? I am sure I am making a simple mistake someplace.Chris

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

Hi, I have a Yoga 2 13' i5 with 8 gb ram, currently running on windows 10. I would like to purchase an ultrawide external monitor for it : https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/437153/lg-29um57-p-zwart/specificaties/ On the internet I read several scary messages about the micro hdmi not supporting the 2580X1080 resolution, or the HD graphics not supporting it. Does someone know whether my laptop will support the Ultrawide resolution? I do only need it for Officework and internet browsing, not for movies or games. Thanks

Hey guys, I recently purchased a micro hdmi to hdmi cable for an external display monitor with my Yoga 3 Pro however after connecting the laptop to the external display, I receive a 'No Signal' message on the external display. When the cable is not plugged into the external display, it says 'Check Signal Cable' therefore I know the external display can recognize when it is plugged into the laptop. I have read other forums regarding cutting back the plastic on the micro hdmi cable for further extension of the male end into the micro hdmi port however continue to experience 'No Signal' messages. Also in my display settings the laptop will not detect another monitor and graphics properties states there is only the single laptop display. Any suggestions will help, thanks!

I'm using a USB-C to HDMI adapter (using the DisplayPort over USB standard, not an older DisplayLink type) to use an external display on the Yoga 730 and it has issues when running as 2 separate displays (everything works fine when mirroring or using only the external display). If you set the graphics settings to "extend these displays" the Windows 10 shell seems to wedge itself (can interact with already running apps, but cannot start new apps or use the taskbar/start menu) and the bottom of each display flickers (looks like a flickering ghost taskbar). I don't suspect a hardware issue with the adapter because it works perfectly in mirroring or single-display mode; instead I suspect a graphics driver bug. Others that use this adapter on other PCs have no problems. I'd love to try a newer version of the Intel 620 graphics driver but it won't install (it says it's incompatible with this system and to contact the computer manufacturer)... Lenovo's customized version of the driver is 4 months old. I have all the latest drivers installed via Lenovo Vantage, Intel's web interface (it only installed newer Wifi and Bluetooth drivers), and Windows Update. The laptop is running Windows 10 1803 17134.112 (2018 Creator's update).

Last time I've installed the updated driver but the last week the problem appeared again. As usual I've installed the driver and after the 3rd restart it works again, but I don't know how long. Have You any idea what's wrong here? Thank You in advance,Zoltán

Hi,  Can someone from Lenovo officially confirm or someone who has bought this laptop test this and confirm, can the new Yoga 900 output 4k resolution @ 60hz to an external monitor, such as Dell P2715Q?  What I see in the specs, it has Intel HD 520, and the spec sheet says DisplayPort 1.2 via USB-C can drive4096x2304 @60Hz However, there's no confirmation anywhere of this, neither from Lenovo, nor from users. Most USB-C to DP cable makers haven't tested this yet.  I'm seriously considering the new Yoga 900 as a replacement for my T410. Main use is business and photo editing, and looks like an awesome laptop. The ability to hook up 1 external monitor at 4k @60hz is critical for me, otherwise, it's a Dell XPS 13. Thanks in advance,Vele

I am using a usb-c to hdmi adapter to output to a TV but the black levels look washed out. I had no issues with the same TV and a previous laptop that had a dedicated hdmi port. In the intel graphics settings usually there is a "quantization range" setting to change color space between RGB Limited and RGB Full if the intel graphics is driving the hdmi port. However, in this case, there is no hdmi port but instead a usb-c to hdmi adapter, thus the quantization range setting is missing. I've had the same issue before on a previous laptop with usb-c. I've tried installing thel atest drivers, including the non-validated ones from the intel website, but none give me the quantization range setting.

My Yoga 710 no longer recognizes the portable CD/DVD drive I bought to use with it. Both were purchased together in July 2016, and the drive had worked in the past (last used to make a recovery media disc in September 2017). The drive is an LG Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer (model SB80NB60). When I connect the drive or insert a disc, the disc spins briefly then stops suddenly. I get an error  message saying "USB device not recognized - The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it." The drive does not show in File Explorer but occasionally shows up in the device manager as "unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed)." I've tried uninstalling that entry and refreshing device manager, unplugging/replugging the drive, using a different USB cable, and checking the USB controllers for updates. I checked LG's support site for any updates but there are none for my device's service code (NB70). Any suggestions?

Are you using the Catalyst Control Center (CCC), or windows itself to do this? By default, when you connect an external monitor to a laptop, the same image (mirror image) of your desktop appears on the external monitor. A Guy

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

Hi, I'm using my Yoga 900 on the desktop for longer periods of time. When it awakes from sleep it does not always "remember" that it was last displaying on the external monitor. Sometimes I have no picture at all, sometimes I have the picture on the internal monitor. When I switch to external only with F10, it won't do that, so the external monitor (HP 24es) won't wake up. Up to now my only solution is to plug out and back in the Type C adapter (Apple 3x multi adapter). That's definitely not what I want to do several times a day. Thanks for any hint...!

Hi,I have a L380 Yoga 20M7-001BMH with ELAN trackpoint which exhibits the same behavior as described on another forum: https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=126939 The trackpad works correctly regardless of scenario, the trackpoint scrolling works correctly regardless of scenario,however, the trackpoint cursor has its axis swapped when I'm using a secondary screen in portrait orientation with "second display only" mode. More specifically, the X and Y axis are interchanged, acting as if the screen orientation was landscape. I'm assuming this behavior is due to the assumption that the primary display of the laptop will always be in landscape mode, and when connecting only an external display, it's percieved as the primary. I have Windows 10 with all updates installed, as well as all updates installed through Lenovo Vantage.The issue is present both with a display connected through a Dell D6000 dock as well as displays connected through HDMI.

Welcome to the forums!
 
I have a suspicion it has to do with the video scaling setting on the SyncMaster. If you go to Picture > Advanced Settings > Picture Settings, look for Size. Change it to Screen Fit. There may also be a button on your remote to change the Video Mode / Aspect Ratio or something similar.

Hi We are having issues with two Elitebook 850 G1 laptops running Windows 10 and using external adapters via the HP ultraslim docking station. It proves to be nearly impossible to come to a stable setup, either the external display is not working, either the laptop display is not working, opening the laptop lid does not work. In short, it?s a mess. Note that this was working flawlessly whit the same machine on Windows 7. Looks like a driver issue to me. Naturally the latest drivers are installed. I recently installed an Elitebook 850 G2 laptop and that one works like it should. This type of laptop has two graphical chips: AMD and Intel. I notice that when I disable the AMD driver the laptop display is not detected. When the Intel driver is disabled the external display is not detected. Maybe someone can explain what is so beneficial in having two graphics adapters. And maybe it is possible to disable one of the two completely and let the machine work with just one? These laptops are not used for advanced graphical work, but their users would be very happy if they could use them with their external displays. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Koen

A:Issues with external display on Elitebook 850 G1

What driver versions do you have? Have you updated the Docking Station Firmware?  There have been a few releases over the years to improve compatibility with displays.  WIndows 10 may "expose" new features that other Windows releases haven't. Dual adapters are provided for performance/battery concerns.  The thinking is the integrated adapter is used for most tasks and uses the least power/battery.  The additional adapter is used when you need more performance/displays/features.

However this monitor won't stay connected to my laptop.  Whenever I plug the monitor in Windows 10 plays it's "new connection sound", my screen goes black and a couple seconds later my screen is displayed on this 38" beauty. However every 15-30 seconds afterwards the display will flash black for a few seconds as my laptop disconnects and then reconnects. It doesn't matter if my laptop is open or closed, the constant disconnects occur (although when my laptop is closed the frequency drops to every few minutes).  Either way, it renders this monitor so frustrating that it's uselses and am figuring out which product I need to return.  Any advice or suggestions are recommended So far I have used lenovo vantage to upgrade all firmware. My buddy also plugged his Dell laptop into the monitor and had no issues whatsoever. So I'm leaning torwards this being a Lenovo issue and not LG. Thanks,

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;

Well, running w7 ultimate on a Dell xps m1330 laptop. Everything looks good, but at work I am connected to a matrox triple-head-to-go device which is connected to (3) 22' monitors (3840x1280 resolution). Now when I connected it, ran the nvidia app, it found it and worked great.

Problem is I get home, no external connected, so running off the laptop with the basic resolution, I am trying to start apps (firefox, stickies, etc.) and I guess they were in other spots at work as I don't see them. I forced a close on FF, then re-started, rt clicking and maximizing which worked, but then other apps like stickies don't have that option. An alt-tab shows it running in the lower right (see screenshot), but there is absolutely no way of getting to the app! I did close the app completely and restarted, but it does restart in a location not on the screen.

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.
