Can I change my 4K display to 1080P on Thinkpad P50?

Q: Can I change my 4K display to 1080P on Thinkpad P50?

Hello, I bought P50 last July with: Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHzNVIDIA Quadro M2000M3840x2160 non-touch Display When I was buying this laptop, I saw that a few people complaining the color of 1080P display was bad, therefore I chose the 4K display. But during this half year I found 4K hasn?t really had a compatible solution with all software, specially I have to use various types of apps. Then the 4K really becomes a burden to me since some apps looks very bad and I often have to switch resolutions for different apps. I just want to know if it?s possible to change my display to 1080P. I don?t care about the color that much, but more the compatibility. I?m still in warranty and want to change display by Lenovo?s after-sales service. Has anyone had similar experience changing it? Or any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.Best,Chen

Preferred Solution: Can I change my 4K display to 1080P on Thinkpad P50?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Since I discovered my Thinkpad T540p has the standard display which is not that great for designing (colours look totally less true and in and escpecially on different angles) I was looking around for an IPS screen. Is it possible to just swap my screen for the IPS 3K version?

Apologies for the basic question but i thought i would tap into the expertise on here. We are about to buy a few Thinkpad P52 (or P1). Our staff only use their laptops for Office 365, in other words Word, Outlook, Excel and generally web browsing. No CAD work, no video or photo editing. What are the pros and cos for 4k and 1080 screens for this type of use?

I have a ThinkPad S1 yoga bought in Dec 2013. I have being using the mini hdmi to work of 1 external 1080p monitor these last few years and it has worked fine. I now want to add a new second 1440 x 2560 along side my 1080 x 1920 monitor for a dual monitor set up. (Mostly for spreadsheets, emails, web browsing etc.) I do not mind if one of these duplicates my laptop screen. I was going to get the onelink dock to enable me to do this however I am not sure if it will work. I know the resolution with dual monitors running off the dock is limited at 1200p. What I now want to do is use the mini hdmi on my laptop for one monitor and the onelink dock for the other, however I want to be sure it will work before I go and buy the monitor and dock. Alternatively I could buy an USB 3.0 to hdmi adapted to run the 1080 monitor and a usb hub for the extra usb's I will need. (I think the dock will use less processing power and would be a slicker set up so I imagine it would be better?) You?re  help would be appreciated as I have read there can be issues trying to get higher resolution monitors to work.

Hello, I use a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen notebook with the Lenovo ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 docking station. Since the HDMI output of the yoga can only output 30Hz in 4K, my question is: Can this output output at FullHD resolution of the TV 60Hz or not? Would it otherwise be possible to expand the USB C/Thunderbold connection on the laptop or docking station 1080p/4K 60Hz to TV via HDMI using an adapter/cable? Or would it be possible to connect the DisplayPort docking station port on HDMI to the TV in 1080p/4K 60Hz? Thanks in advance.

As you can see, I have a pretty decent laptop. I love it but was wondering if it is possible to change the screen to a True High Def. one (1080p (1920×1080)) from the 1600 x 900 one that came with it? The screen is 17.3 inches and my machine is a Asus G74Sx-bbk8. I'm assuming I'll have to change drivers but is there anything else that would stop this conversion from working? This my only machine and cannot lose it . I have found the screens online but am wondering about compatability.

I am trying to get my home theater system to play Blu-Ray disks via my HTPC (Home Theater PC) I have just upgraded the ATI drivers for the video card and I still have two issues. First when I play a BRD via PowerDVD Ultra V7.3 the program opens Ok but when I put in a BRD I get a message saying the color scheme is being changed to Windows basic. The BRD plays fine on the PC but on the video display the PowerDVD interface comes up but the picture area is black, no movie, nothing. The cloned PC display showes just fine on the 1080p video display.

The other issue is the desktop freezing ...kind of. If the system sits idle for a while the display freezes, but the system is still working OK, it's as if I took a screen capture and set it as a background. The mouse moves but nothing is clickable. To get out of the I have to do a Ctrl, Alt, Delete and when the window opens close it and all is well till the system sits for a will and it's the same thing.

Hi, I'm trying to use my TV as a monitor with HDMI but I am having problems. I have a 32" 1080p Insignia TV (model number ns-32l450a11) whose native resolution is reported to be 1920x1080 on all specs listings I could find on the internet. However, the 1920x1080 option only outputs in 30Hz, with considerable latency. The color quality and image clarity is fine, but the image needs to be overscanned. I was able to find a workaround in the form of a custom driver someone made, and unlocked it to 60Hz. With this, the TV maintains the high input lag. I tried changing to any available option and I found that 1280x768 operates with very little lag , comparable to my other monitor. Does this mean that this TV actually has a 5:3 native aspect ratio? What I want to know is, is there any way to get 1080p to happen with the same small amount of lag as 1280x768, or perhaps if there is a way I can use a higher resolution in 5:3 ratio? Do Nvidia/Intel based machines have this issue?

A:1080p TV display latency in 16:9?

It's not a PC (ie: nVidia or Intel) issue. It's a TV issue. This is a common problem when using TV's as a monitor. Most TV's suffer from the same problem. They aren't designed to function for your intended use. Hence the reason monitors cost more than a comparable sized TV, even though a TV has additional hardware to meet it's function (as a TV).

Hi! I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and the built-in screen is 4k. I need to use the lower 1920x1080 resolution quite often, because most of the applications I use won't scale to 4k (for example GIMP).  When I right-click Graphic settings (Intel) -> Resolution -> 1920 x 1080 on the desktop, the display is all blurry, even after I log out and log back in. Everything looks blurry, not just some apps, all of them. Also the Windows 10 UI is blurry. Also, if I turn off my computer when using 1920 x 1080 the display won't turn on next time. I have to close the lid, open it and press the power button (wake from sleep) at least three times before the display turns on. After I log in there's always some message saying "You are not using recommended resolutio..." etc. This is very annoying, what should I do? Looking forward to your reply.Best regards,SankoWeb

Hey guys,

So I recently switched to a 1080p Display... a Dynex television. When I first plugged my HDMI in, I noticed that the resolution was very poor and most of the images (especially text) were very blurry. So, I simply forced 1080p using the Intel Graphics panel, made a custom aspect ratio, and voila, things are now scaling properly. However, for some reason, the text seems to be very hazy. More specifically, the text has this sort of "glowing" effect, where each character is border by a shade slightly brighter than the background color. This is causing the text to look cloudy, and is agonizing to read. Besides this the quality seems to refuse to get any better no matter how high I make the resolution. Even though everything scales properly now, the quality is to poor to bear. My television does not have an Overscan or Autoscan feature, and it does not have an option to change the aspect ratio (it's sort of an old tv).

DPI scaling is already at its lowest setting and all my other windows scaling settings are at their minimum.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Andrew M

A:Display output to tv 1080p quality

Any PC that has any type of external display connector can handle 1080p. VGA might have been a problem since not all TVs accept VGA (and not always 1080p when they do), but DisplayPort and HDMI have supported 1080p since they were introduced on laptops around 2009.

Hi, I have an HP Envy Touchsmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition Laptop, running Windows 8.1.

When I finished the setup process, I immediately download Chrome, since IE was the only browser pre-installed. Now, I've never used Windows 8.1 or 8 before and am totally new to this new Metro UI and Charms thing (so far I hate it) so as you can imagine I ran into problems immediately.

I will post the full specs of my laptop below, but just know that it has a 1920x1080 display and an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card.

When I opened Chrome for the first time, it launched as an app. Everything was okay about it, except I didn't like the new concept of "Apps" and Microsoft's idea of multitasking. So naturally I relaunched it in Desktop Mode. However, I noticed that the text (on the URL bar, the buttons, and the tabs, as well as web content) looked much blurrier than it had in Windows 8 mode.

I looked around for a while for a solution, and found it. You simply had to go to the Chrome properties, go to Compatibility, and check "disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Now, of course I had no idea what that meant, but when I relaunched Chrome everything was fine again, except for one problem.

Everything was unnaturally small. The tabs, the URL bar, the refresh, back/forward buttons, menu button, and extensions were all smaller than they were in Windows 8 mode and in desktop mode with display scaling.

Compare the 2 screenshots below:

Ok, so our math skills tells us that 1080p on a 4K screen SHOULD be as sharp as a native 1080p screen. However I can't seem to make that happen unless I use a virtual machine (VMware) and set it to 1080p. In this case Windows thinks the screen is 1080p and there's no blurriness whatsoever.If you set the screen to 1080p without using VMware then Windows will use anti-aliasing which results in a blurry screen.We know the hardware can do it... so the question is: How can we make Windows think the 4K display is 1080p (so that anti-aliasing is not used)?Brgds... /Thomas

Hello Everyone,
I'm building a computer and have all of the components (just need to finish putting them together). Now, I have a Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 card and was hoping to watch Blu-Ray videos on my current monitor which is an HP w19b. The monitor has a maximum resolution of 1440x900.

From what I understand of HD technology, this would mean that no, the monitor would not be able to handle the full 1080p resolution, but it should be able to display 720p.

But here is the question, will my current monitor be able to display ANYTHING from the Blu-Ray player?

I think the confusion comes in when I see these monitors that advertise HD capable, but I thought all monitors were HD capable, you just need to know what resolution you are trying to display the HD at, 720p or 1080p.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

A:Display 1080P with Sapphire Radeon HD 4850

You will be able to watch your Blu-Ray movies on your computer in full screen with no problems assuming, of course, that you have a Blu-Ray drive in your computer. Since you monitor supports a resolution up to 1440*900, the image of a 1080p movie will be scaled down a bit to fit your screen, but the image itself won''t be cut off or distorted in any way.

Hope this helps and welcome to the forums

I have a problem that when I use either of my HD 1080p TVs,
the desktop seems to be cropped by about 40 pixels on all four sides of the screen.
It happens on both my Sony Bravia LCD TV and my Sharp Aquos TV.
I do not think it is a driver or Windows problem per se, as if I plug the HDMI into
my 1080p ASUS monitor, all is fine (all pixels are shown). On the Sony, I can also
adjust Horizontal Center up to 5 pixels but of coarse I lose a pixel on the right for
every pixel I gain on the left.

Therefore, I think the display is actually something like 1880 x 1040
instead of 1920 x 1080. While this is not a problem with pictures, it is a big
problem with a Windows Desktop, as the Start Menu is hard to use.

Is there any simple way in Windows 7 to tell it not to use the edges of the screen?

A:Display cropped on 1080p TV using HDMI cable?

This is the answer I found using
"Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel" Other graphic
drivers will probably have a completely different terminology.
OK. I finally found the setting you were talking about under
<Right-click the desktop> / Graphic Properties ... / Advanced Mode - OK
Under "Custom Resolution" and answering yes to the very scary
warning about how this could cause your computer to blow up.
I set width 1920  height 1080 refresh rate 59 color depth 32
Underscan percentage 20% (I left interlace off and Timing GTF)
I think (hope) "Timing Standard" is ignored using HDMI.
I then added the Custom resolution 1862 x 1048, 32 bit, 59 Hz
I then switched to "General Settings", Select the "Resolution" as
the custom one of 1862x1048 AND set "Scaling" to "Center Image".
The last bit is very important as none of the other settings seem to have
an affect unless "Center Image" is chosen. It still Chops off
some pixels around the edged but Underscan percentage 20% was the
highest I could set when I apparently needed 30-40%. But at least
now I can see the speaker control and the time.
Thanks everyone for their help.

Unfortunately I don't have the liberty to build or use a desktop so I'm considering a new laptop. I like the Sager NP9377 but unfortunately it uses a 60Hz display at 1080p. Is 980M SLI worth it at all or should I stick to a single 980M and put the rest of the budget somewhere else? Here's what I was thinking.

That depends on what you plan on doing with this system. Given your planned specs, I'm going to assume gaming or video editing/rendering.

SLI/Crossfire only give marginal improvements in comparison to a better, single graphics card. That being said, if the 980M is the only graphics card available, it may be worth getting two in SLI.

I've never seen a laptop offer SLI graphics...though I've never been in the market for a gaming laptop, so I haven't done too much research on them.

Hi - I just got a new T460 laptop from my company.  However, the extended desktop monitor that I have currently (Dell P1911) will not auto-size correctly with the new laptop.  If the text size is large enough to read on the laptop, the display size is WAAAY too big on the extended desktop and I can't even scroll to everything I need to see (bottom of screens, etc).  However, when I decrease size to fit the Dell extended desktop, the type on the laptop screen is so small as to be nearly unreadable.  Have discussed this with IT and they say there's "no good solution - it's how the new laptop works."  Can someone suggest a extended desktop screen that would work better with this model Lenovo, so that the screen sizes will transfer properly?  Thanks!

Hello. I just bough a screen for my computer.
I am using Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Radeon HD5850 1GB graphic card.
Using HDMI cable

And I was hoping to get a great screen in 1920x1080 resolution by buying this screen. After reading like 10 reviews on google search it was a great match to my demands.

Then I got the screen, and tested it. However when I selected to run in 1920x1080, the quality was horrible!
I try to do print screen, but only the analog display is horrible, not the results on the computer.

However if I tune this down to 1600x1200 resolution, it looks great. But I want to have the full 1920x1080 effect not the 1600x1200 effect.

I checked the drivers, and it says my latest driver is "2009/10/29_001003". Witch looks like a recent date.

I have tried to google any specific drivers for this screen for vista/Win7 that got a newer date than my drivers. Without any luck.

I try to google other people who have same problem as me, however, I only get to 1000x different reviews of this monitor, fake driver download/repair sites and such things.

I got very mixed up feelings about this. I do not know if I shall try to deliver back the screen, or that 1920x1080p isn't for computers? Or maybe HDMI cant run 1920x1080p? Is it a malefactor fault? Shall i just stick to the screen and appreciate that it works good in 1600x1200, I mean it isn't that much lower. But I keep dreaming that the screen is originally made for 1080p and that the screen quality wil... Read more

For 6 weeks I have had no problems driving my 30" dell from the W520 displayport at its native 2560x1600 as the single "projector" display. Today, I aroused the laptop from sleep as usual, and was greeted with a blank Monitor and the laptops internal display on, with a fixed unchangeable resolution of 640x480. after about 5 reboots (includring removing power and battery), I found a way to get the W520 panel back to 1080p,but it wont display anything on the external monitor.  The monitor works fine connected to the displayport of my dell laptop, so I dont think its anything to do with the monitor. Interestingly, If I have the monitor plugged in, and do "Detect Displays" in he windows Display->Screen Resolutoin dialogue, I get this: 1.

Hi everyone, thanks for looking.
Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings.

I watch HBO GO (i have a valid subscription) on my Windows 7 Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV.

Scenerio 1:
If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate, I must leave the laptop open and, when I connect the HDMI the TV, it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem.

Scenerio 2:
I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!


A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

I have at the moment about two to three years on the HDD that is in my T60 and it's getting to the place where the 'free space' is not very large any more. And since I'm in my eighties, some of my 'friends' tell me that I should plan toreplace it now while I can still think, because the older person have a tendency tonot being able to cope with what's mentally required as time goes on.I have bought a new Seagate ST2000LM007, so there is nothing on it that needs saving.I would like to divide it into one (or two) Primary partitions in the first 512 GB where I would like to install all my Windows 7 32bit stuff from the HDD that is, at the moment inside my ThinkPad T60. Is it possible to copy all the s/w, including the updates to this new Seagate HDD?I'm asking because when I first installed Win 7, there is one s/w program that prevented Win 7 from be fully installed on my ThinkPad and downloading all the Updates that were to be included along with the installation, and there are a whole lot of these.The rest of the new HDD I would devide up into Logical partitions for eComStation and or Linux.But my biggest concerne is how to get around this one program that is suppose to be from MS that prevented me from getting all the Updated for Windows 7 when I first installed it.Any thoughts or ideas?

Hi, thanks in advance for your help.I have a Thinkpad T570 with a UK keyboard, I would like to swap it with a french one.I did it for many Thinkpad, but I cannot find any french keyboard for this model ... is there any way to find this keyboard? or is there a model of Thinkpad compatible with the T570 keyboard ? Best regards,

A:Thinkpad T570 - keyboard change

There are two vendors and four french keyboards available for your T570:- FRU: 01EN939, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,CHY.- FRU: 01ER552, Tachi BL KBD,FR,CHY.- FRU: 01ER511, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,LTN.- FRU: 01ER593, Tachi BL KBD,FR,LTN. CHY means Chicony and LTN - LiteON.NBL stands for non backlit and BL - backlit. If you ask me, which one vendor will be better, then in the past LiteON made pretty good keyboards and Chicony one of worst in comparison to other. I have seen, that LiteON's keyboards are available on eBay.  Keyboards for T570 are allowed to be replaced by customer, so you'll not lose warranty after replacing keyboard (obliviously, if you don't damage something in the process).

Hey everyone,
I recently ran into the issue that the backlight on my Lenovo Thinkpad W520 for the display wont light up ( i took the LCD and shined a flashlight behind it to ensure that it was being digitized which it was). It worked fine one day until I turned on the laptop and the screen was black. I have reseated all the RAM, bought new cables for the display, a new inverter for the display, and even a new screen. I have unplugged the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS, and tried holding the power button for long amounts of time with the battery and power cord disconnected. Holding the power button down and restarting fixed my Thinkpad T410 when the same issue happened 3 times before, but it wont fix this issue. All of this never happened on the T410 for the 2 years I had Windows 7 on it but now both machines run Windows 10 Pro. I removed the hard drive from the W520 just in case it was a problem with the drive. Also I am testing the screen with the laptop display assembly disassembled. Please help, I am lost as to what I can do.

After a couple months of flawless use, I'm having trouble with my display on this old model.

For a day or so, the display would go dark at random times, requiring a restart, after which it was fine for awhile.

Now it has gone out completely.

The funny thing is is that it's not "completely" out. I can still make out, but just barely, the display. It's too dark to read or navigate, but I can tell the desktop is there somewhere.

I've plugged an external monitor into it and it has worked fine.

I'm hoping it's a simple fix. The battery is very old and won't charge over 15%, and if that is the problem I'll be glad, but this is with it plugged into the ac adapter.

Any thoughts?
