I have a Yoga 900s and suddenly the display won't work for the USB-C out. I have been using a USB-C to HDMI converter, and it worked for a bit, but now won't connect at all. I've tried a few different connectors, but nothing seems to do the trick. Any help would be great, as I can't find any information on the 900s, or what the problem might be.Thanks!

Unfortunately a friend's Yoga 900s display crashed. It is a QHD type. And, even more unfortunately, it seems there's currently no provider for Yoga 900s QHD displays. But the FHD display seems to be availabe. Does anybody know, if the FHD display will work in a Yoga 900s QHD model? Of course with reduced quality, but better than broken. ThanksMenner

I just purchased the Yoga 900s a couple of weeks ago and need to connect to an external monitor as the screen is too small for daily use.  But I have no idea where to begin.  What kind of cable do I need?  Do I have to use a docking station?  If so, which one is compatible?  Very confused and would appreciate your help.  Thank you!

There is an adapter made for the machine that connects the usb-type-c with video port to HDMI

There are very little documentation for a lenovo yoga 900s.I would like to know if I can connect two displays to my lenovo yoga 900s over usb type c. I am looking for a hub that will work on my device and will include at least one USB 2.0, 2x HDMI (one can be VGA) and an ethernet port. Can you recomend any?

A:Does lenovo yoga 900s (900s not 900) usb type c supports thunderbolt 3? Can I connect two displays?

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't answer your question directly  but looking at the base spec, the implication is USB-C but not Thunderbolt, single external display supported.

Greetings from Portugal. I'd just like to say that i've found a powerbank that can be used with the 900s (and probably others that use the same charger). The one i found, and can confirm charges the laptop, is "RAVPower 27000mAH Powerstation" that i found on amazon.It's a powerbank with a regular power plug to connect the charger, so it could be called a mini ups instead of a powerbank. Hope this helps people looking for something similar.

For a couple of years I've my Yoga 900 laptop with 2(!) Dell P2415Q 4K monitors using a USB-C to MiniDP dongle. I was shocked the laptop could handle both of these monitors (combined resolution 7680x2160!), but it did just fine. I recently sold them and am now using the laptop with a single Dell U3417W widescreen monitor (resolution 3440x1440). For some reason, even though the new monitor has FAR fewer pixels that the two 4K monitors did combined, the laptop will now frequently get into a state (often after a sleep/wake cycle) where the screen starts blanking out every 3-5 seconds. Usually I can't get it to stop until I do a shutdown and cold restart of the laptop. I have the latest display driver available on Lenovo.com for this laptop. What's going on here, and how can I fix it? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello. I recently purchase the Yoga 900s with 256GB PCIe SSD. This is my first experience with an SSD. I had to send the pc for warranty repair due to a faulty speaker and "r" key. Lenovo did not have parts available so offered to replace the unit and return my hard drive. I need to get my data off the original and believe I need to purchase an enclosure but after hours of research, am still not sure which type of enclosure I need to get (or if there is an alternative solution). I greatly appreciate any assistance that can be provided.

First, let me say I have not used this product, but I have used a very similar one to work with SATA format M.2 cards.  I have one of these on order, but it hasn't come yet. I use them to test drives without mounting them in a machine.  I am not recommending a particular seller.

I'd like to know before placing an order. I looked at a Yoga 900 in the store and saw that despite its QHD+ resolution, it was using this horrible Pentile RGBW display that looks like there's dithering everywhere.

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).

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!

Hi,    Yesterday I tested my Yoga 900S with the Intel detection tool and it's come up as being affected by the Intel SA-00086 vulnerability.  I found this document which lists the status of Lenovo products with regard to the vunerability and there is no mention of my model so I contacted the support team and they were unable to provide any further information.  I then requested that they formally open a ticket, which they did.  Today, less than 12 hours after opening the ticket, it was closed with the following response "after your escalation was received and the case was thoroughly investigated, your request cannot be fulfilled".  No further information other than making sure to tell me that any response will be ignored.     Is this the best that Lenovo can do?  It's not like I was expecting an immediate fix but at least some formal recognition that they knew there was a problem and were working on it.  I could understand if this was a cheap laptop a few years old but this is a laptop that was quite expensive and is around 3 months out of warranty, I'm sure some are still in their warranty.   Rob
