I have tried updating the VGA drivers today for my Ideapad Y900 (GTX 980M) from the ones in the Lenovo website that date back from 2016 to the newest Nvidia drivers (to this date, version 416.34). However, after updating the drivers, the HDMI connection no longer works. Whenever I try to duplicate or extend the screen, the settings don't save, always getting locked on the primary/laptop's screen only.I did a driver rollback and it went back to work ok.Can Lenovo please brings us newer certified drivers for the Y900? This is a top-of-the-line laptop and it's not an old laptop to just have stopped getting new drivers since its release!

Hi, today my hdmi port stopped working. I used my 22" LG monitor every day until it stop working today. In the morning i unplugged the monitor because i needed to take the computer at the university. Back home a few hours later plugged everything and all seemed to work fine. Then i restarted my pc after an installation. At the startup the pc won't recognize the monitor. So i tried to connect to another monitor, still not working. Tested the hdmi cable with another pc and it's working perfectly. So had to be my hdmi. Unistalled both intel and nvidia card, reinstalled back, still not working. The only thing haven't tried yet is a clean installation (did the last one a week ago).Also i noticed that sometimes the image on the screen was "waving" like there was a bad contact with the cable but after 1 or 2 seconds back normally. Don't know if i had to wipe and reinstall all again or give up and send the pc to customer service for replacemante or repair. If someone had this problem and solved i appreciate every suggestion, thanks  EDIT: Forget to say that when i plug in the hdmi cable the regular blinking light of the screen stay on for 2 o 3 second, the appear a no input signal on the screen and start blinking again. Like the screen somehow see the input but can't display the image

Hi, I just got my new Lenovo P50 a few days ago, and so far it was a great experience.The only thing that doesn't work is the HDMI connector. I understand the HDML is connected directly to the NVIDIA GPU. I assumed it will work when setting the BIOS to discrete graphics, but that didn't help as well.Steps I took  (The HDMI cable is, of course, connected, and "Project" settings (Fn F7 or Windows-P) is set to "extend")1) Update NVIDIA drivers2) Use NVIDIA drivers recommended by lenovo3) Reduce resolution to HD and Full HD (the projector I am connecting supports both resolutions)4) many many restarts  I have noticed another thing - In the BIOS there is a way to configue the device to which the boot screen will be sent to. The options are "ThinkPad Display", "DisplayPort" and "Display On Dock". But the documentation on the right side is also saying there SHOULD be an Option "HDMI". Which is not there. When looking into the NVIDIA native system information, it shows 1 native output (the laptop's screen) which is "connected". Other than that ttere are 3 (!) display ports, all 3 not connected (thou the projector is on, and the cable is connected). To me it seems like the HDMI port is disabled, but I can't find any way to enable it! Any help will be appreciated.

Hi everyone, the wifi connection on my Ideapad 500S-14ISK stops working when I connect to any external monitor via HDMI. I've had this problem eversince I've gotten this laptop.The wifi works fine, only when a monitor (either the TV or my external monitor, using different cords) is plugged in I lose my internet connection, even though it still shows full wifi connection. It works very briefly if I disconnect the wifi and connect again. Starting the computer while the monitor is already plugged in does not help. All drivers are up to date. Thanks in advance for all replies, I appreciate it.

I just got this computer directly from Lenovo. If I use an HDMI connection it will take FOREVER to load or not load at all. If I use a VGA connection it will load instantly. I hear contacting Lenovo sucks so that is why I am trying here. For example. I had it loading and it has been nearly 30minutes loading connected to the HDMI connection and is now on the Windows 8 screen.  Just got a new computer running Windows 8.1. If I have a VGA cable connected to it, Windows seems to load very rapidly and works well with no issues. If I use just the HDMI cable, Windows takes up to 30 minutes to load and every things takes a long time to load. How can VGA vs HDMI depend on how fast Windows loads and works.  What is causing this issue??? PLEASE help. I did try to install my old video card from my old computer that was purchased about 8 months ago. It does have a windows 8.1 64-bit driver but the hardware would never be found and it would not go directly to the on-board VGA with the graphics card in.  Please HelpMod Edit:  Merged duplicate posts re same issue - Hamluis. 

A:Lenovo K450e HDMI vs VGA working

How PC connects to monitor does not affect boot speed of the Windows OS the reason why HDMI connection affecting boot process of the Windows OS could be your monitor is not setup correctly which could result of no image on monitor display or Windows OS or graphic card software is not set correctly make sure to adjust the resolution, color quality, and refresh rate, mode for multiple displays and select the signal format for a standard TV or HDTV (high definition television). You can use the graphic card software to adjust settings.

Hi Everyone, I am trying to connect the system to my Monitor using HDMI.I went to the BIOS and selected the IGD from the video devices, pressed F10 ( Save and exit).Immediately lost power supply to CPU and, the system didn't start.  Called Customer Service and followed the instructions pressed the power button for 10 sec by unplugging the power cord and the system started again normally. After that I tried to connect my monitor using HDMI and its still not working. I went to the BIOS again and changed the Video device to Auto and pressed F10 again. Same problem repeated again. Customer service said that they cannot do any thing as if I open the system to disconnect the expansion card,if any damage happens it voids the warranty as I got the system (new)  yesterday. Any help to connect to use HDMI by disabling the expansion slot will be really helpful and appreciated. Also,why the system is losing the power supply after I do a save in the BIOS? Here are the specs of my system and currently using DVI ports to connect my monitor: ? 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4790 Processor (3.60GHz 1600MHz 8MB)? Windows 8.1 64? NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 2GB? 32.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600 MHz? 2TB 7200 RPM + 8GB SSHD? DVD Recordable? Broadcom 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless  Thank you,Manohar

A:Lenovo K450e HDMI not working?

I had the same problem and just returned mine today (tech support suggestion).  I'm guessing you've probably gotten this fixed by now but how about connecting your monitor using the mini HDMI connector on the NVIDIA card.  I read this in another post "after" I've sent mine back.  My understanding is that the on-board graphics port (HDMI/VGA) are disabled since you'll be using the NVIDIA card.   I'm using two monitors and did get one to display using the DVI-I on the NVIDIA card...but tech support said if "not" using the NVIDIA card I should still get a signal using the on-board ports.  I'm interested in seeing how this turns out...I purchased the same machine as you did.  Now I'm waiting for a replacement....

Hello!The story begins 1 year ago, when I decided that I don't want my Windows OS and I want Linux. So I tried to install Ubuntu and installed it on its own, so no Windows anymore on my HDD. After that point my USB 3.0 and HDMI ports didn't work. I've tried everything on my Linux distribution(Arch Linux) and nothing works, dmesg -w doesn't even react in any way when I connect anything to any of the ports. I installed recently Windows 10 and the ports still don't work.In both Linux and Windows can't be the drivers fault, nor loading different modules in Linux.Does someone, who really understands Lenovo hardware know something of this? I've already given up, so I just want to understand what I broke during the installation of Linux. Thanks in advance!

I've tried the Thunderbolt firmware upgrade but in order for that to work it says that you must connect it to an external monitor through HDMI and have it displaying which it will not do. Since we've had this one it used to display just fine on HDMI but now it does not. Any ideas for getting the firmware upgraded to see if it helps?

So ive encountered a recuring problem with my V110 laptop. The HDMI port on the computer is sometimes not working. Usually it takes a couple of hours each time to get it working again but im getting annoyed that this is a requrring problem. (general things ive done is make sure the HDMI ports on tv works, changed hdmi cable, changed computer ect to verify its a problem with the V110)Generally the HDMI port stops working after either windows updates, or software installs, however this time it did not work to roll back any updates or uninstall any programs. Ive disabeled and re-enabled graphics drivers, updated graphics drivers, rolled back a windows sequrity update that came into play 13th/14th of sep. 2017.Nothing shows up under display adapter in device manager, and ive tried many of the suggestion fixes on different forum posts to no solution.I'm fresh out of ideas. Anyone have any suggestions before i just reinstall windows in hope that no updates will screw over the HDMI port?
