Yoga 260 refuses to use 4K resolution on external display

Q: Yoga 260 refuses to use 4K resolution on external display

I have attached an external 4K display (Samsung U28E590) to Yoga 260 (with Win10) through HDMI, but it's able to use only half of the resolution (1920 x 1080). When I attach an Acer laptop, the full resolution is available (--> shouldn't be cable or display problem). I have reinstalled the driver and it should be on the latest level. Any hints, where to look further the problem ?

Did you try to install a display driver? I am not sure, if there is one for your Philips display. Generally I agree: According to Intel your config should work:https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025673/graphics-drivers.html

A:Lenovo Yoga 13 max resolution for external monitor

Dear undersound,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community,
 
The Yoga 13 has the Intel HD Graphics 4000 so its maximum resolution is 1600 x 900 IPS (wide viewing angle) so on the external monitor it will not display 1900x1200 FHD.

Hi all, My laptop is a Yoga 510-14ISK, which has an Intel HD Graphics 520 (graphics unit integrated with the Skylake processor) and an AMD Radeon R5 M330 as the PCI-E card. My issue is supporting the full resolution of my external monitor, a BenQ FP241W, which has a native resolution of 1920x1200. The max resolution offered by any of the tools (Windows, Intel and AMD) is 1920x1080. This leaves black bars on the top and bottom of the monitor, which is not only wasted space, but is contributing to the burn-in of my eight-year-old-but-still-working-as-new monitor. I originally connected the laptop via a Thinkpad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock, which uses USB-C from the laptop and HDMI to the monitor. I discovered, however, that the Intel driver would not detect the monitor this way, or at least it wouldn't list it. The monitor is now plugged directly to the laptop via HDMI. I assume this is a driver issue, since these modern graphics cards should easily support 1920x1200. If it is, it isn't trivial to solve; I spent hours yesterday trying various things:Exploring the display configurations in Windows 10 (64 bit), the Intel Graphics Control Panel (IGCP), and the Radeon Settings tool. Strangely enough, the latter does not show a ?Display? category, which, judging from online screenshots, normally should be there (see attached screenshot). The max I ever get listed is 1920x1080. Attempting to enter a custom resolution of 1920x1200 at 60p in the IGCP gives an error, ?T... Read more

I would be interested in 4k or 3440 x 1440 or 2560 x 1080, but I don't know whether these resolutions are supported and if so at which hertz rate. I could not find any information on the Lenovo support page regarding this matter.

I have a laptop as my main computer and I have it hooked up to an external keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Sometimes I like to unplug everything and just use it like a normal laptop. When I use the Fn+F5 key to change to the internal display, the resolution is still the same from the other display. It is still readable but there is a black space where the screen could expand to. I tried to (while hooked up to the external display) change the resolution of the secondary monitor (the internal one) but it keeps just copying exactly what is on the first display (the external one). If I change the resolution on one monitor, they both change to that. If i click "Identify" it shows a number "1" on both monitors. I could just change the resolution every time i switch monitors but then when i plug it into the external one it is a little distorted (enough that i could navigate to change the resolution back though)

Or is there a batch or vbs script that could toggle the resolution between the two?
The two resolutions are: External: 1024 x 768 Internal: 1280 x 800

Hi,I have a Lenove Yoga Thinkpad 12 laptop from a few years ago. I want to geta UltraWide (21:9) external display, but I am not sure if this is supported by the laptop. The processor I have is Intel Core i5-5200U, and the onboard processor is theIntel HD Graphics 5500. The specific UltraWide Resolution I want to run is 2560 X 1080. In the information about this graphics card, which supports total pixel count above what I need (https://ark.intel.com/products/85212/Intel-Core-i5-5200U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2-70-GHz-). However, Intel told me that manufacturers sometimes puts limits on this, and that I need to ask Lenovo directly. I only have HDMI output, not DisplayPort. I read that HDMI 2.0 is required forUltraWide (not sure if that is correct?) and I can't find information on whetherthe HD 5500 support HDMI 2.0 or just 1.4. Will my laptop support an UltraWide external monitor @ 2560 x 1080?

Hi
I am using Vista for business (32-bit) on a new Dell Latitude E4300 laptop. I want to use a new external monitor (Dell S2209W) with it.

The external monitor is connected and works, but I cannot get it to display at its proper top resolution of 1920 x 1080.

When I check the displays in the laptop's device manager, both the laptop and the external monitor are given as Generic pnp. Attempts to update the drivers meet with the response that they are up-to-date.When I try to change the display from the desktop, the resolution options do not go high enough for the external monitor.

The laptop display works fine; what I need is for the external monitor to work at the high resolution.
Any ideas gratefully received. Thanks

Hello, I have Thinkpad T440 (i5-4300U, Intel HD Graphics 4400). I am considering buying a LCD display with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and I am wondering wheather it will work with T440. Important thing is that it will work with 60 Hz refresh ratio. According to the specification [1] it should work: "[email protected] (DisplayPort via Mini DisplayPort cable on integrated models)", but the refresh ratio is pretty low - 30Hz. The specification [2] for i5-4300U, Intel HD Graphics 4400 says something different: "Max Resolution (DP)? [email protected]". So the refresh ration is higher than in T440 specification - 60Hz. Also quick reference quide to Intel processors [3] confirms the resolution and refresh ratio: "U-Processors: 3200 x 2000 @ 60 Hz, 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz". Is 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz supported on T440? I hope that ThinkPad T440 specification is not accurate enough and that limit to 30 Hz refresh ratio only applies for 4k resolution (3840 x 2160). [1] http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T440/ThinkPad_T440_Platform_Specificatio...[2] https://ark.intel.com/products/76308/Intel-Core-i5-4300U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_90-GHz[3] https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/quick-reference-guide-to-intel-processor-graphics

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).
