I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop running Windows 10. I have just purchased a Dell U2515H monitor which I am waiting for delivery for as we speak. 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. Looking on the left hand side of my laptop there is a port with a lightning sign next to it, is that called Thunderbolt? and is that my monitor/display port? and what lead do I need? it looks like some sort of micro socket!

My old dell laptop L502x is a bit quirky and caused me to buy a desktop, however, i think it is still saveable. when i have it display to an external monitor via hdmi, it works 100% with no problems. however, when i use the monitor that is physically attached to the laptop, i will get a " A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" BSOD. from what i've gathered over numerous crashes, i believe its a problem with the integrated graphics in the processor, since they are not used when outputting via hdmi. i could be wrong tho, any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, all, I have a Dell XPS 15 laptop and recently bought a Asus MB169B external USB monitor.  When I plug the monitor in, the laptop monitor (not the external monitor) flickers about every half second.  If I unplug it, it stops.  I upgraded my video driver to no avail.
Is it simply a power supply issue (the external monitor  does not have a power cord)?  Anything I can do?  It does it even if I have the laptop plugged in and charging.  
*something interesting - I just discovered if I duplicate the display and not extend the flickering goes away...but that kind of defeats the point of a dual monitor for me.
Thanks.

Hi NATURAL1DAVE,
What is the exact system model? 
Have you connected the external monitor to a dock or hub or directly to the system USB port?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the BIOS, update and restart the machine and check.
Reinstall the video drivers and chipset drivers for the system from the above link and check.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hello, I recently purchase a Lenovo Yoga 710 and want to connect to an external monitor (HP Pavilion 22cwa - offers VGA and HDMI input).

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.

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.

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!

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 ?

Hello, I have purchased Lenovo Yoga 920 with USB-C docking station and connected two external monitors (1 via DP, and 1 via VGA) to the docking station. I have disabled notebook's screen and I use only monitors, however it is impossible to use the Yoga Notebook in this mode, because my mouse cursor freezes every 5 seconds. I am unable to perform any productive tasks while using external monitors, which is very frustrating. I tried looking at the forum and have found that maybe disabling Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework (DPTF) might solve my issues, however when I boot into the BIOS I don't see any Intel DPTF option available under configuration window. Does anyone encountered similar issues?

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.

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 currently have a Lenovo Yoga 910 (no 4k version) and I've been having problems connecting to an external monitor for some time now. The monitor works well with other devices so I'm positive it's a problem with the laptop/adapters. My external monitor is the following: Acer LCD. It does not have an HDMI port, but it has a DVI port. As far as I know, all of my drivers are up to date. I have two methods for connecting: 1. CableCreation USB-C male to HDMI female + BlueRigger HDMI male to DVI male 2. Choetech USB-C male to DVI male I used option (1) for a while with success, until suddenly it only provided low resolutions for the monitor. Now, when I try option (1), it won't even extend the display. I'll select "Extend these displays" and apply, only for it to go back to "Show only on 1". So this has somehow gone from working perfectly to not at all. I thought the CableCreation adapter might be faulty, but then: I recieved the cord for option (2) today, and the outcome is exactly the same. "Extend these displays" automatically reverts back to "Show only on 1". Thanks for any and all help!

hi, I have setup one of my faculty with a Yoga 920131KB plus Thunderbolt 3 Dock. He has an existing monitor (Samsung Syncmaster P2450) that should support 1920x1080. Seems to be current on all drivers and patches under Win10 EDU version. (Including the CCG4 Firmware Update to v55). We are using the HDMI output from the dock. If we try to configure extended desktop to the Samsung monitor at 1920x1080, the screen extends off both sides about half an inch. Maybe also a quarter inch over at the top.  As a work-around, set at 1680x1050, video generally works as expected, but the display starts about 2" in from either side. Generally I don't like using add-on utilities (prefer to just use standard windows built-in options), but somewhere along the line this has the Intel Graphics HD Utility.  I was using that to switch resolution, the Windows settings seemed to track along with changes in the Intel utility, but still overscanned the display.  I played with some other settings in the utility about Display Scale (other than 100%), didn't seem to change anything. A second problem occurs with this setup: when the laptop is used at home, put to sleep, then plugged into the dock, the screen is displayed on the external monitor at maybe 200% (?).  That is, you only see the central portion of the image.  No fiddling with settings seems to correct it, but rebooting usually fixes it. The second problem also occurs with a similar Yoga 920 + Dock (d...

Hello, I used a Belkin USB-C to HDMI (4K/60Hz) adapter in series with an HDMI to VGA adapter to extend my workspace.  I used an old monitor that came with a Dell Desktop ages ago.  Early this afternoon, things worked perfectly.  With the laptop and the monitor on, I plugged in the adapter and initially the combination came up "duplicate."  I opened the F10 menu and selected "extend" and worked non-stop for about 2 hours.   I had old documents open on the laptop display while I authored new documents on the extended display. Before the 910, laptops I used had HDMI ports to which I plugged in the HDMI VGA adapter and I never thought much about how the combinations worked (as they never failed). After dinner, I prepped the system to show recorded video on the external monitor for an online class I'm taking so I could use the laptop display to search for information, images, etc when recorded lessons are vague/incomplete.  Then I went back to parenting. When I came down after putting the kids to bed, the laptop had gone to sleep. When I woke the device, the external monitor reported "no signal detected" and the display on the laptop kept flickering.  This is a new experience for me. Unplugging the USB C adapter stopped the flashing.  I don't know how to return the system to whatever was working before the sleep cycle.   So I started searching for others' wisdom and experience.  I read o...

Ever since updating to Windows 10, my Yoga 2 Pro (model name 20266, Mfg Date 14/08/2014) is unable to connect to an external monitor. Tried a few TVs and a projector using the micro HDMI port. I've connected other computers to each of the monitors so I know they work. I understand how to use WIndows intimately (35 year old software engineer at Google, been using WIndows 20+ years), trust me, this is not a case of me forgetting to use Windows key + P or anything like that. The mirco HDMI port itself (physically) is fine and was working great until the day I downloaded Windows 10. So unless it happened to spontaneously stop working on the exact same day i upgraded to WIndows 10, it's not a hardware issue either. The issue is that the external monitor is simply not detected, no matter my attempts to play with the display options.I have also run the Intel driver update utilty, but it refuses to update the driver because it says it's detected manufacturer drivers and tells me I should get the manufacturer drivers. Ok, so I went to the Lenovo Yoga 2 support website, the latest driver they offer on that site is 10.18.15.4240. The driver update doesn'tmake a difference. Now, if you go to Device Manager > Display Adapters > Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, right click and selected "Update driver software..." it will download an even newer version (10.18.15.4279). This doesn't work either. I've search all around the web and cannot find a solution. I'm debating in... Read more

Please helpI am trying to connect my new Yoga 900 to an external Full HD monitor Samsung syncmaster b2430hd using the following adapter which I connected to the USB type c of the Yoga and to the HDMI port of the monitor: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00X4S5C7G?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 However, the picture on the external monitor look fuzzy and the taskbar is hardly visible.I?ve tried reducing the resolution to the native for the external monitor i.e., 1920 x 1080 but still did not help.Are there any adjustments to the display settings that I can make to improve the picture on the monitor? 

A:Connecting Yoga 900 to an external monitor issues.

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.

I'm looking to buy an external monitor for my Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 (Intel Core i5/Intel HD 4000). More specifically, I would like to drive a 2560x1440 monitor. By looking under the generic external monitor properties in Windows, I discovered the maximum supported resolution is 2560x1600 at 60 Hz for the Intel HD 4000. However, the laptop only has an hdmi port for video output, but I cannot find the supported hdmi standard versions (i.e. if it is 1.3 or 1.4) to figure out the maximum refresh rate I could get. On another thread on these forums (here) some user suggested that the supported hdmi versions should be 1.3 and 1.4, while other users reported that they managed to drive a 2560x1440 monitor but they did not state the resulting refresh rate. How can I proceed to discover the maximum refresh rates I could get with a 2560x1440 resolution? Secondly, I would like to ask if it is possible to use an usb 3.0 to display port adapter to drive the monitor at 60 Hz, and if I could have some suggestions on which type of adapter I should buy in that case.Thank you for your help in advance.

I am considering buying a Dell u3417w (3440X1440), but I am not sure my 1st gen X1 Yoga will be able to run the resolution. It has the i7-6600U CPU and Intel HD Graphics 520. Can anyone confirm if this setup will work? I am primarily using it for work spreadsheets etc. (no gaming)

I bought a Yoga 920 for my B'day and love it. Now I want to buy it presents. I am looking for a 27-inch external monitor and I hope you guys will help me out. 1) Does the 920 accept an external monitor's multi-touch input? Is that function called WQHD? The documentation isn't clear. 2) Is there a paticular type of USB3 dock that works 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 thoughts you might have.
