Thinpad X1 Yoga vide issues

Q: Thinpad X1 Yoga vide issues

I doubt there are any fixes and these are mostly observations, but here goes: 1. The other day, I had screen flashes for a couple hours in the middle of the day. I was battery for extended time, but not doing anything video intensive - taking notes with onenote in laptop mode. The screen would flash with random frequency, and made it almost unusuble, but then would stop for a few minutes and start again. It finally stopped, but i never found a cause. I did disable the WIndows error reporting, made sure i had the latest driver (mine is slightly newer then what lenovo system wants to download) - 2. Video resolution when used with external monitor - I have an external monitor above the laptop - leaving the laptop at recommended 2560 x 1440 and size at 200% (recommended) makes the laptop 2x as big as the monitor above it in the extended desktop layout - this causes issues moving the mouse between the 2 as the monitor is 2x the size of the lptop. (Driver 21.20.16.4678) 3. Dragging windows from this 200% display to my external monitor causes some 200% sized artifacts until the entirewindow is moved. 4. I use synergy to share mouse and keyboard between my Macbook and this - the mouse hits an artificial wall near the laptop right side - i believe it has to do with the display scaling 5. Reducing the lapop to 1280 x 720 at 100% solves all the above issues, but then text is not crisp in Outlook app. Most other apps look fine, as does windows itself. I am using display link dynadock. I know my setup is complicated, but none of these problems existed with the same configuration using my P50 or a second macbook in this spot. I am 99% sure the display adapter/settings are responsible for this, but since i have the latest drivers, i don't think i can do much else.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello, My Thinkpad Yoga (model year 2014-2015) gives sometimes a white screen by startup, or after a softclose (for example when turn over from laptop to tablet mode). When I open and close my screen after a couple of times the screen is ok and I can work with it. I called Lenovo support because I think it is something with the connector from the screen to the motherboard. The computer was 2 months out of warranty so they say that I could send it to support for a check, what will cost me a lot of money for only analyse the issue. So I asked for another solution. They asked me to reinstal Windows and al the drivers, because they think that it is a software issue. Because there is a lot of software on my computer, and I need him every day for my work, I didn't have time to do this directly (first make a backup and then reinstall al the software). So I bought a new Lenovo thinkpad Yoga 260, and installed al my software. Now my "old" Yoga, whit the white screen issue, is ready for reinstall the software. Today I reinstalled Windows 10, but the issue is still there "sometimes white screen". So I think again it is not a software issue but a issue whit the connector from the screen to the motherboard. My question is if someone has experience whit this issue, or maybe the same issue?

Hi,I just recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 900 Laptop that came with the Intel 520 graphics card and Windows 10. I have begun to realize a re-occurring issue where I receive a Blue Screen of Death error (stop error) whenever I am trying to edit a video with adobe premiere pro or sometimes when I am playing games. The error is VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (igdkmd64.sys). Each time this happens I have to restart my edit or my game because my computer must reboot and it makes me want to scream . After frantically looking for solutions on the internet I got nothing that worked except for disabling the driver, which is OK, but I can't help but feel angry that I don't get to use my new graphics card to its full potential... So, is this problem solvable? I have tried uninstalling the driver and restarting my computer, but that did not work. Is this something I will just have to live with until an updated driver or windows 10 update is released? It just hurts that whenever I play a game or edit I have to disable my display driver. Any tips or comments to help are greatly appreciated!Alex SOME SPECS:Intel Graphics 520CPU: Intel 6th Generation i7-6500 2.5 Ghz16GB RAM512 SSD

Hey. I bought my Yoga 520-14IKB (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256gb NVMe SSD, GeForce 940MX) 2 month ago, had no problems, till last week. Now sometimes i experience such a strange behaviour. Mainly i work on my laptop in normal mode, and sometimes, during such work, it can false trigger a tablet mode for a few (2-3) seconds (notification appers), which causes the keyboard to switch off for this time, despite the fact, that it still stands as a normal laptop, not even close to position, which triggers the yoga mode. How can i fix this? System is Windows 10 April 2018 Update, have all the latest drivers and latest version of BIOS.

Hi,
I've been given a PCI express video card. I'm not certain what it is but there is a lable on it somewhere saying "PCX660" I assume this means that it is an Nvidia GeForce card (128MB).
It's running OK but the display is dodgy and I assume I need to download drivers.
Where might I go about finding this driver and how do I install it?

Thanks and quick reply would be appreciated

Hello-

I've just done my first vista build and gotten everything up and running on Ultimate x64.

The only thing I didn't buy was a vid card because I basically ran out of money and couldn't go big on the card. I don't do a lot of hardcore gaming, but i do use Adobe CS3 and will play/try out the occasional new game...

I plan to try out/play COD4, Crysis, Assassins Creed and a few others, but again, I'm not a heavy gamer who needs teh greatest FPS ever. It'd be nice if things were smooth, and didn't chunk along certainly, but it's not the most important thing to me.

Please suggest what you think is the best bang for the buck vid card for 100 or less.

Thanks!

A:Best Vide Card Suggestion for $100 or less

If I were you I would go for the XFX GeForce 8600 GT Video Card. But save up another 50 to 100 dollars and you can get a higher end card.

Are you trying those keys on startup or on restart?  If you've only tried on startup,  try on restart - or on startup after a full shutdown (SHIFT + shut down).

Hello. I recently installed a Samsung 950 Pro in the P50.After some problems during the installation it seems to work fine, but.... The 950 pro supports AES Hardware encryption (Advanced Encryption Standard, Class0 SED).I also was able to use it with a normal SSD before. After I installed the 950 NVMe, the option for setting a harddrive Password inside the BIOS just vanished.  am not able to set any harddrive passwort and thus use encryption. Every other PW seems to work fine...I would like to ask why that happened there and I hope that some of you may be able to help me with that. Thank you very much,Greetz










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Thinpad P50, Samsung 950 pro and password security

While 950 Pro presumably supports AES on hardware level (i.e. all data is encrypted prior being written on the flash chips), key management is still "to be supported by FW update" ( http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/ssd950pro/specificatio... ) If you want to encrypt your 950Pro, use Bitlocker or other third-party encryption solution. There is a performance and SSD wear cost associated with that, but it's negligible for most applications.

I have a PIII 500 running on a SOYO 6BA+IV motherboard with 256 ram and a Annihilator 2 video card with 32 ram. I recently replaced my video card; however, I am stillin experiencing pauses in video playback (movie trailers) and especially in pc games. The action will come to a stop for 5-10 seconds and then will resume. Its almost as if the cpu suddenly comes under a heavy load. It occurs but not quite as noticeable in video playback with Windows 7. I have changed the virtual memory from one hard drive to another, and disabled the video ram caching in the bios with no luck. Please help...I can't play my games and movies!!!

Do you have any programs running in the background like Microsoft office "Find Fast" Hit Ctrl,Alt,Delete and list all what is running. With 256mb of ram I dont think Virtual memory is the problem..

A:Solved: Dual Monitor on IBM Thinpad 770x

Dusty,

Do not confuse "external monitor" with "DUAL Monitor". The latter is what you apparently want. The former is what you have.

You can Google: Thinkpad 770 external monitor

All,

I've just run into this issue after adding an PNY brand nvidia 8500gt card w/512mb to my system. Would somebody be able to help me figure out if this means the card is bad? Situation goes like this:

Dell E520 has 3gb RAM (2x1gb + 2x512mb sticks) and onboard Intel graphics that uses shared system memory.

I installed an nVidia 8500gt 512mb card in the PCIe-16 slot and disabled the internal card.

Display Properties - Advanced reads:
Total Available Graphics Memory: 1534 MB
Dedicated Video Memory: 512 MB (the card, right?)
System Video Memory: 0 MB (card not stealing any, right?)
Shared System Memory: 1022 MB

The kicker is that Vista shows main system memory at 2558 MB instead of 3.x GB??? I also have an XP boot disk and it shows the same reduction in system memory when this card is installed.

I know I can't have more than 3gb seen by Vista or XP, but if my onboard video is disabled and my PCIe-16 card isn't stealing any, shouldn't I still see the total 3gb memory for system use?

If I pull out the 2x512mb sticks, the system shows a total of 2GB system RAM with the configuration otherwise the same. Put the 2x512mb sticks back and the system only sees half?

The BIOS does report the full 3gb memory any time the sticks are in, with or without the new video card. Only the OS appears to have the memory reduced to 2.5gb when this card is installed..

Is it that Vista/XP limit you to 3 GB RAM "including" the dedicated RAM on the video card or do... Read more

Total says your GPU has 1534 MB of memory available for its use. Since only 512 is on the card, the other gig is coming from your system memory.

Greetings all! I just got this slightly used HP z210 CMT workstation.  It came with this NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 video card. I like that it provides a dual DisplayPort for my HDMI monitor, but it's not good for gaming.  This is the video card I'd like to purchase, considering my budget: GeForce GTX 1050. If anyone could take a look, please, and kindly tell me whether the specs of this computer are compatible with the latter card, such as power supply (240W), HDMI support, etc? I'm reading that the heatsink on the GeForce card is rather large. Will it fit into the workstation?And if it's just not compatible, is there a similar video card that will work instead?

So i recieved my P40 Yoga a few days back. Installed Photoshop, Sketchbook and a few other painting softwares to test the capabilites. I was planning on using the P40 primarily for digital painting because I work as an illustrator. First issue:Touch and pen does not work together. In software like Photoshop this is extremly impractical. Like when you need to press a button in Photoshop with touch, you actually have to lift the pen off the screen before the touch reactivates. Would it not be possible to have touch available just for the left hand? And not for the right hand where you hold the pen. This may sound like a minor issue, but it gimps my workflow and especially the speed. Second issue:Painting and drawing with the pen works great, but in the mode where I rotate the screen almost 360 degrees, which is called the tablet mode, the pen cursor starts jumping all around. This happens only in this mode. Because of these issues I will most likely send the P40 back. Hopefully these issues are easy to fix, so I can avoid that. And ideas? Help is much appreciated!

A:P40 Yoga issues

Sorry to hear the pen/touch interface isn't working well for you.
 
Have you considered pressing buttons with the stylus itself rather than your left hand? Which buttons are you intending to push with a finger in PS while the pen is still in use?
 
The challenge for any tablet digitizer is allowing the user to keep their hand(s) on the screen while drawing/illustrating while knowing that a hand or finger shouldn't be registered. If tablets worked the way you were describing then there would be more chance for accidental, erroneous input from the user.
 
It's not impossible but certainly something I've never seen before, including Wacom products or any mobile tablet notebooks. If you know of one, please post a link as it would be good to see this in use.

Hi, Today I started driver update using Lenovo Companion and Sierra Wireless failed to install. Later on Companion cannot detect it so the new version is not applied. Screenshot is attached. Other than that, battery is very weak. My friend has dell 14" 7xxx series, it lasts for over 12 hours, and I am lucky if I get 5 hours of work. Also issue is that after I open my laptop I need to wait some time until I can enable cellular (for some time there is no cellular at all). And also automatic rotation never works, I need to rotate screen from settings. When I leave my pc open it never goes to sleep even if I close all apps and I set it to go to sleep after 10 minutes. Also sometimes I close the lid of the PC and it does not go to sleep at all. So I now always need to keep track of when it went to sleep and when not. I really think Lenovo should start offering premium laptops with AMD chipsets/CPUs. I had few Intel laptops and all of them have similar power issues as well as screen dimming issues no matter who makes them. Previously I used AMD ones and never had a single issue with them. Unbelivably how many issues for premium price we pay for these laptops. And these are just ones which come to my mind immediately, there are plenty more I cannot remember now. Anyway my main issue right now is that Sierra driver which I hope will solve Cellular not available issue at least. Thanks in advance!

I am going on 3 weeks with this Lenovo Yoga.  I have to say that I want to love this device but way too many issues have cropped up.  The Hard drive partitons (which I fixed).  The trackpad issues with office which I have attempted to fix by some online suggestions and trying the latest driver update.  All had issues, went back to the orignal shipping driver...at least it only has issues with office at least for me.  Then the screen flickering is driving me nuts.  I have disabled power saving in the intel power saving settings and it helped, but I still see some mild flickering on desktop vs. tile mode here and there.  Then I have had an issue with it installing windows updates which I am currently in the process of fixing.  I feel like I am spending more time trying to iron out problems than I am enjoying this device.  Sorry if I sound like I am on a rant, but I am just wondering if I am the only one.  Do I have a lemon ?  I think I am just down to the screen flickering which as done it numerous times while typing this.  It is like a battery saving / dimming issue.  Doesn't matter if I am on battery or plugged in for this screen dimming issue.

A:Yoga - many issues

you are definitely not the only one experiencing problems.  i am a long time mac user and when it was time to get another laptop i was hesitant to go with a windows based system but was intrigued by the yoga.  seemed to blend a tablet and laptop perfectly while still having the ability to run office unlike many of the dedicated tablets.  when it is working correctly i love the yoga however ive spent more time troubleshooting, for all of the same problems you outlined and more, than i have over the past 5 years on all prior laptops combined.  prior to the yoga i didnt know tech forums like this existed but so far i am more impressed the lenovo's support forums than i am the the computer i spent a grand on.  i am not even writing this on the yoga as the wifi is again giving me problems. i'm coming up on my 30 day return window and will likely be exchanging this

Well, I have decided to post this here... I am currently making a list of all of the issues i am having.... I started the list and decided i really HAVE to post this here.   I bought this Lenovo Yoga 920 in the end of  november, 2017.  It worked ok for about a month and then it started having issues.  After 5 months of dealing with the ever increasing amount of issues, I have come to the conclusion that this laptop was either put together by satan and shipped to me OR it was somehow possessed by a demon, once it arrived here to my house.   This list is not in any actual order, it is based on me sitting here and thinking about what odd things have happened to this laptop.  The First issue was that the keyboard would work, when i had the Tablet mode in use.  That was really irritating, but i could deal with it.  Then the next issue was that the Screen decided not to rotate. That was really odd, but i could deal with it.  I figured it was a software glitch and I dont really need to use the tablet mode....   Next the sound quit.  That bothered me, but I was ok enough at the moment.  I decided to call Lenovo and they said "oh its probably a software glitch" and so i went back to work.   Next I would notice that when it was charging, it would get really hot (there is a Windows sticker that is on the bottom.... the heat made it actually slide across the bottom).  I also foun...

I've had my Yoga 900 for about a month now, and suddenly several issues appeared:-The Start-menu and Action center suddenly got really laggy. Live Tiles are not as smooth as they used to be.-Scrolling in many apps, including Start-menu is "jumpy". Whereas when I scroll, either with the touchpad or the touchscreen, it scrolls some lines and suddenly goes the other direction for a few lines.-Screen-brightness is locked to 100%. I am not able to reduce the brightness, neither from the Action center, nor the Lenovo settings.-Sleep-mode suddenly disappeared from the "power"-alternatives in the Start-menu.-Screen-orientation does not change, neither with rotation-lock de-activated nor activated. I tried to re-install some of the drivers, but nothing happened after I hit the "Run" button.

Dear Forum I found a lot of issues with LTE/Sierra Wireless on the forum and web generally but none that fits my symptoms. I am using Win10 64 bit on Yoga X1 gen 2. LTE card is Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. Provider is Vodafone Germany. Driver details from device manager areMicrosoft driver 1/1/2018 version 10.0.16299.192.Windows reports that this driver is the most up to date driver available for the hardware. The issue is that Mobile network gets sporadically disconnected. Usually when the device goes into hibernate or restarts. Windows network diagnostic shows that the SIM2 PIN is needed but doesn't give me any idea where to enter this. Checking internet settings and some help from forum, I find that DCHP is reset to static IP address each time but no values entered. If I change to DCHP and restart the adapter then everything works... until the next restart. When I first got the laptop everything was working except the download speed was aweful. Compared to Vodafone on Gallaxy S8 next to laptop about 10 times speed difference. Therefore I installed the Vodafone app but then delinstalled when that didn't fix the speed issue. Seems that the DHCP issue arose at this time. Would appreciate the support to fix this. Really anoying to have an always-online laptop that needs 5 mins of fiddling each time I want to go online ;-) Regards  Richard

So I broke down and contacted Lenovo Support about the problems I posted earlier that could not be fixed along with a note that a tiny strip of fabric was extruding from the bezel at the top of my screen between the case and the glass!  
 
I sent it off and got it back, hoping everything was repaired.
 
Nothing was technically repaired.   My problems were phantom sticking keys, like alt gr would just activate and not go away, or windows, or alt.  The only way to make them stop was to reboot my machine.  This would stick even if I was using the onscreen keyboard and my pointer would show it was stuck on.
 
My g key suddenly vanished, then the laptop logs me out and I have to log back in.  G key is fixed.
I took a close look at the top of my screen and can see where they just CUT the fabric off, because they left a few strings of fabric and there are scratches from a sharp object!  I was told the upper casing had been replaced!! 
 
I'm going to contact them again on Tuesday.... I'm beginning to hate this laptop, because I use it for work, but it's so glitchy it constantly interrupts my work flow having to fix things.

Hi guys,Glad to join the club here and the forums. I am loving my Y2P, major upgrade over my five year old HP laptop.Had three questions for you guys... 1. In tent mode, has your touch screen ever timed out? I had mine lying out (running on battery) and after 15 min or so of inactivity I began to use it again to find the touch screen not responding. I was only able to use the Windows logo key. No amount of swiping made the screen active again. I turned the device into laptop mode and everything began functioning once again. Going back to tent mode presented no problems and touch was working just fine. If the touch screen does time out, how can I get it active again without having to switch modes?2. Again a question about touch interface. I was trying to navigate the metro apps (weather and settings) side by side with my desktop apps and I found that the touch screen was not responding on the metro side. Desktop side presented no problems. Turned metro full screen and it worked like a charm. Desktop mode did not present any problems in the 1/3, 1/2, or full screen mode, it was just the metro side of things. Has anyone experienced this problem? 3. My prior laptop's battery began to have problems quite quickly. I was wondering on what things you guys would suggest to extend the battery longevity of this device. Since this is my first Ultrabook it would be hard to switch out any of these internals and was just looking for some input. I have a tendency to charge the lapt... Read more

I am having the same problem with my touchscreen, it seems to happen in tent mode mostly, *I think*, i've only had the machine for less than a week and haven't had much time to play with it but it's sort of frustrating.  I was wondering if you found any info on the issue?
