Lenovo Yoga 920 - Dual HDMI Dell Monitors Via j5create Display Issue

Q: Lenovo Yoga 920 - Dual HDMI Dell Monitors Via j5create Display Issue

I have a Lenovo Yoga 920. When I connect a single Dell Monitor through a USB-C to HDMI adapter from j5create, the screen appears to be the same as I swap monitors in and out. However, when I used a j5create adapter to plug two of the same Dell monitors in, they're is a visual difference between the two. I'm not familar enough to know if it's color/contrast/brightness/etc, but am confused as to why two of the exact same monitors would require me to set up a custom color profile to work. Shouldn't it be as straight foward as plugging the identical monitors in and expecting the same visual result between the two?

In my organization we have purchase a few Dell 3040 mini computers and now several of them are having technical issues.  We are supporting dual monitor on all our systems but the issues are:
1. The screen goes BLACK while the user is working but the system is still running for one user.
2.  Another user screen goes white while she is working and the system is still running.
Have installed the latest Video drivers from the Dell site and still the problem persist.  Can anyone provide any tech advice to resolve these issues.

My old monitor has problems turning on, I can leave it on for 30hrs before it decides to display a picture, or I can manipulate it by unplugging the DVI cable from the back, but sometimes even that takes a few tries. It's off warranty and for reference it's a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW.

So I bought a new monitor and I have it plugged in using HDMI, but a problem I get is that when both monitors are plugged in the HDMI has no display until it gets to Windows, so I cannot see the boot process of my PC, because my old monitor as explained above has problems turning on.

Was a hindrance today when I was tinkering with my SSD and had to go to BIOS, and frankly I'd like to be able to see in case anything goes wrong, like a BSOD or Windows update etc.

So how do I get my HDMI monitor to give me a picture when the other monitor is plugged in. My new monitor is another Samsung, SyncMaster SA350.

A:Dual Monitors, HDMI monitor doesn't display BIOS

Short of something like this,

Newegg.com - BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adaptor

not much as that is a function of the video card and nothing to do with Windows. The only way would be to try and edit the video card's bios so that the HDMI port is made to be the primary port when powering on.

Failing that if the old monitor is that bad, why use it? If the new is the only thing connected then it should display the bios screen when booting up.

Hi -

I am running
Win 7 Ultimate with a
GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB and
two SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" Monitors.

Now I have them set to run through a Monoprice HDMI Switch because I also have my 360 running on the one monitor as well.

Now my issue comes into play, which I am not sure if its the card or not, is when i use the switch to change the one monitor over to play the 360. All the items that were on that monitors screen, like icons, folders, taskbar, what have you, gets shifted over to the other screen.

This, beyond annoying, messes me up because then i have to replace everything on the screen to the position it was, and using auto arrange would not help with something like Rainmeter which I am running. I do know when I had XP and switched over to the 360 this did not happen. So , I don't know what is different in 7 that is now making it do this but is there a way to fix it?

So let me get this straight: You have two monitors, both are used by your computer, but you want to switch one of them over to the Xbox when you want. This sound right? Have you installed the newest drivers from the Nvidia site? That card is quite old, im not sure if you're gonna get drivers for Se7en, but if not, use the XP drivers.

My Dell Optiplex 990 SFF has an Intel 2000 which I'm learning is no good.  I hate that my screened looks super stretched vertically and no matter how much I play with the resolution I can't fix it.  It's hurting my eyes. 
In addition I wanted to set up dual monitors with extended display.  While it's detected, identified, and showing the desktop on both monitors it's in duplicate and I can't get  the extended display to work. 
I'm no good at computers and have spent HOURS trying to understand all of this.  My guess is that I need to upgrade the graphics card?  I feel like I can do this from a youtube video.  I'm just not sure what I need.  I don't think I need anything fancy. Just something basic that will let me do the dual monitors with extended display and address the stretchy screen problem.  Recommendations?

From what I understand that card is not very powerful but might be enough to operate multiple monitors in low resolution

I have a new Dell Inspiron 20 All-in-one 3043, running windows 8.1.  I bought it specifically because I liked the way you can set the 20” monitor up on the desk in a small space and also have a computer function, but I need to extend the video to a Samsung monitor.  The HDMI port on the 3043 computer is an in–put only port and for some stupid reason is the only display port on the computer. 
 
After three days of figuring out that the HDMI port is in only and messing around with adapters, I have been able to get a j5create USB to HDMI video adapter (jua250) to extend the video to a Samsung S22C300H monitor.  However, when the adapter is plugged in, the audio on the Dell 3043 cannot be heard.  The speaker controls are not muted, and the speaker control windows act like the speakers are working.  If the USB adapter is unplugged, the audio starts coming back through the computer speakers.
 
The brain trust at Dell technical support tells me that the computer is “sending the audio out to the adapter”, thus no audio on the computer speakers.  j5create support said they are unavailable after I was on phone hold for over 30 minutes.
 
All three USB 2.0 ports on the 3043 act the same way.  I tried the adapter on my HP notebook, running windows 7, USB 2.0, and it did the same thing……..extends video, but stops projection of audio through the computer.

Hey There. New here and very glad to find this site. Here's hoping someone can give me insight on this problem I'm having.

So I have a very cheap Dell Optiplex 745 I got off amazon. Do some 2d animation, and it was all I could afford when my laptop had a sudden HDD failure. So anyway, the graphics card outputs to a DMS-59 (I believe) and came with a dual Y dongal converter to VGA output to support dual monitors. So my current setup has my monitor connected to the primary VGA output, and it works fine.

So recently I received a Wacom Cintiq graphics tablet. to hook up it requires an HDMI female port. I tried to rig it up using a converter on the secondary VGA port to change to DVI, then use a second converter to go from DVI to HDMI. But all I get on my tablet is "No Input Signal".

I searched around and haven't been able to find anything to help. I tried it in the primary vga port, but it doesn't work there either. Any Ideas? I looked around for a better way to convert DMS-59 to HDMI, and I found a dual splitter, but it only ships from Europe, and I don't want to pay 60 bucks and wait 3 weeks to get something that may not work.

Any tricks you guys might know to try and fix this? Would it be easier to just replace the graphics card with one that exports HDMI? if so any suggestions of a (cheap) one that would fit, and preferably support dual monitors? Would rather not spend much since I'm saving for a new machine that can render a lit... Read more

I have an LCD TV with HDMI I like to watch movies on from my laptop. It's got an ATI HD2600 card.

I had issues setting up dual screens, extended vs clone etc. I just wanted a quick an d easy plug in to watch the movie, unplug to compute again. But would always have to adjust resolution on the TV from 1650 to 1920 manually.
Best I could do was to hook up the HDMI, disable the laptop display and it would show 1920 on the TV and when I unplug the HDMI, the display would come back on and show it's 1650. This is the only way I've figured out so far that would switch to the right resolution automaically. Plugging the HDMI back in would kill the laptop monitor and show on the TV.

Anyone got a better way?

Are you sure what you want is to DUPLICATE the contents of both monitors (referred to as "clone mode")? You want to show the identical desktop content on both monitors identically and simultaneously?

Or do you want to EXTEND the Windows desktop to run horizontally across both monitors, so that your Windows desktop is pretty much "double wide"? This allows you to drag windows onto one or the other monitor, and open up independent program windows on either monitor to meet your needs (e.g. to look at two open program windows independently presented on each of your monitors).

If you run the dual-monitor setup in EXTEND mode (with one of the monitors called "primary" monitor for Windows and the other monitor known as the "extend/secondary" monitor) then each monitor can be configured to run at its own native/optimal resolution, independent of what the other is configured at. So if you have a CRT (typically 4:3 or so) it can run at say 1280x1024 or 1600x1200 or 1440x900 or something like that, while your flatscreen/TV (typically 16x9 or 16x10) can run at say 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 or 1680x1050 or something like that. So you'd get FULL use of both monitors at their native/optimal resolutions, and maximum width of the effective combined Windows desktop.

If instead you do really want to run the two monitors in "clone mode", then you only have a Windows desktop that is the smaller of the two monitors. And you will be running the... Read more

Hi there,
I've got an OptiPlex 3040 micro running Windows 10 64bit (came installed on the machine) and two monitors (Dell U2415, came as a pair) using extended display. One monitor has an HDMI-HDMI cable going into the computer's HDMI port, the other has a DisplayPort-DisplayPort cable going into the computer's DisplayPort port. (There is no VGA port installed on this machine)
Both monitors are on the correct setting for detecting what cable is plugged into them. Whichever monitor the DisplayPort cable is plugged into cuts out to a black screen with nothing on it multiple times an hour during normal computing (mostly email and web browsing). Not a steady flicker, just randomly goes black and randomly comes back on.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the monitors, checked all the settings, ran the troubleshooter (no issues found), updated my graphics card driver (it was already the latest version), and nothing seems to be wrong there.
When I swapped the HDMI and DP cables to see if it was a cable issue or the physical monitor, the monitor that then had the DP cable plugged into it started to have the problem, whereas the other monitor (now plugged in via HDMI) had no problems. Originally there was a Mini DP-DP cable connecting one of the monitors and I thought maybe that was the issue, so I replaced it with a brand new DP-DP cable the other day. Still having issues with whichever monitor is connected via DP.

This does not sound like a hardware failure. Did you check/test all of the Windows 10 power management options? Specifically the PCI Express- Link State Power Management setting? Or just set the Windows 10 power management to High performance and retest. Also, if the U2415s USB upstream cables are connected to the computer, be sure to disable the USB selective suspend setting.

Hello everyone, My client purchased a new ProDesk 400 G3 to replace a defected one that they got. Everything was going fine with the replacement until I noticed that everytime you reboot the PC. The 2nd monitor turns off and when you login as a domain user. You have to manually detect the monitor in the Intel management concole. For somereason either Windows or the driver forgets when you reboot but I'm thinking it's drivers. I installed 7 other same model ProDesk's and right out of the box with the drivers and image already installed. When you plugin a scond monitor Windows won't recognize the 2nd display. I figured it out though, you have reinstalling the intel display driver and then both displays will work. But this isn't working for the PC that I'm talking about because it resets after you reboot. I tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it a bunch of times. I'm almost certain that it's a driver issue because the other PC's had issues with their displays as well. Intel doesn't seem to have a updated driver out yet either so I hope that this PC isn't not deffected like the last because it's going to look bad on me when it's HP's fault.

Hi,

I am trying to use an extra monitor with my notebook with a separate monitor attached to it in order to have 2 displays. I am also setting the display settings as Extended Display.

I wish to run a game on the attached monitor and on the other hand browse the internet and chat on the notebook's display. For some reason I cant succeed in doing it.

Can someone give me some advise on how to do it please?

Thanks.

you can not do this. I have tried and found out it is not possible. You can try alt tabbing while in game but in the end it does not work well.

My work purchased a Yoga 900-13ISK and two external monitors with HDMI and the traditional VGA inputs. I would like to connect the machine so I can run two external monitors simultaneously when I'm working from home. The best solution I have found is the type c adapter which will allow my to run one external monitor only. Does anyone have any guidance for setting up the machine to run two external monitors simultaneously? Thanks!

A:Yoga 900 - setting up dual external monitors?

Upon reading articles online about the Yoga 900, it does support dual monitors (HDMI or Display port), but you'll need a USB-C adapter. Does your USB C adapter have two display options on it?

I have an up-to-date computer built to run games very well. I want to use two monitors. They're both TVs that support being used as a monitor. The first one is the one I've been using since I bought the computer, connected via HDMI converted to DVI(i believe. not VGA, but still gets fastened by one screw on each side). The other, new TV that I bought, I am trying to connect via HDMI converted to DisplayPort, and nothing is registering or being found/detected

I have a computer with vista basic and have dual monitors with a generic video card and it has works fine. I recently upgraded to Vista ultimate and now when I go into display,it is showing only one monitor. Both monitors on on but with the same screen. Since it is a generic video card I cannot find where to set up the monitor to view seperate utilities/programs. Any suggestions?

A:dual monitors not showing up in display

exactly what video card? sounds like you need to install vista drivers for it. If t came with the system, you should be able to go to the computer manufacturers and get the proper drivers. If you purchased it separately, go to the video cards manufacturers website and get the driver there.

Normally for dual monitors all you have to do is to right click desktop, click on properties, and click on settings.

I have two monitors connected. They both display the same thing. How do I make it so they display different things? I right clicked and chose screen resolution. It doesn't give me the option for two monitors. They both show that they are the 1 monitor.

Hi, I don't necessesarily need a docking station, but if it only costs a little more than other solutions to drive 2 monitors then I might as well get a docking station. What should I look for?  I see there is a Lenovo part I can get (0A33970) used for $60-$70.Whatever I get I'd want it to be generic enough to use with other laptops I use. The other laptop I'd want to use it with also has a Thundrebolt port if that makes a difference.  But I think I'd rather have a USB3.0 solution since Thunderbolt is Intel only and I can foresee some AMD Ryzen in my future. So that Lenovo 0A33970 is a USB3.0 docking station.  Does anyone know if this would work with other devices than Lenovo?  I'm especially curious about the gigabit ethernet port... is this a real network adapter itself over USB or does it somehow do passthrough to the existing network interface on the laptop? I'm open to non-lenovo solutions as well.

I recently installed a second monitor for my PC. I have an AMD 7850 and one display is a DVI output (my primary and previously used display) and the new one uses an hdmi output. When I first tried this, it worked completely fine but now, when I boot to windows the computer doesn't output a display when both are connected.

The computer is booting to windows succesfully, though, as the num lock key works and I can shut down the computer with out hard killing the power. If I boot with only the DVI monitor everything is fine and, after I have booted to windows, I can then connect the hdmi and both displays work.

Any ideas as to why this might be happening? Is there some way to choose a primary display port on the video card? Thanks for the help.

I just bought a Samsung 4K monitor and would like to up scale the display so I can see it. I also have an HP 1920x1200 monitor. The problem is that when I scale the dpi it affects both monitors, which is not at all satisfactory on the HP. So far the best solution I've found is to set the 4K to 2560x1440, but that seems like a waste to me. Is there anyway to set different dpi for each monitor.

Another solution I thought of was to use the HP as my primary monitor. The problem with this is that the steam games I play don't seem to allow running on monitor 2.

Thanks for any thoughts.

A:Scaling monitor display with dual monitors

You get use to it. Scaling the DPI can also effect some applications that use Windows DPI settings so be careful. When you push it beyond 120% some application menus will be offset. (The actual menu will remain in the same place but the area in which you click would of shifted). This will also happen in some games that use Windows DPI settings and not their own. The game itself looks fine until you attempt to use the menu system. I know of two games that are affected by Windows DPI, EVE Online and Mass Effect.

Firefox has a scale feature that you can use by pressing and holding Ctrl + MouseScroll.

I have 2 27" Samsung Syncmaster s27b550 monitors which are connected to my Nvidia Geforce GTX650 TI via HDMI and VGA. both screens have speakers. i also have an inbuilt sound card on my Motherboard.

Sound comes out of my Graphics accelerator through the HDMI Cable to the monitor on my left and if i plug a 3.5mm stereo cable from my on board sound card to the audio in jack on my 2nd monitor i don't get anything.

what i am trying to achieve is to setup up the monitor on my left as the left channel and the monitor on my right as the right channel so it balances the sound between the two monitors. Can i blend the two sound outputs like they are 1 and use each output as a single channel.

A:i have a dual monitor display and want sound from both monitors

I don't think you can do what you want, with the setup you have. First, Windows only allows one "default" audio playback device and with HDMI it defaults to the HDMI audio. Thus the PC audio (speakers) do not work.

I don't know if an external device would split the HDMI audio so you could do what you want. That looks like the option if something like that is available.

Hey everyone, I've been having a recent issue with my monitors and it's really been stumping me lately. I recently acquired a 2nd Yamakasi 2560x1440 monitor from South Korea (I love these things!) and while the monitors themselves are working quite well, I've been having an issue since I connected the 2nd one.

Occasionally (maybe 25-50% of the time) when the PC has been idle for long enough that the monitors have turned off, when I come back to the PC and move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard, the monitors turn back on and I am promptly greeted with a black screen on both, however it appears that there IS a signal as the monitors turn on and remain on, however that signal is just a blank black screen. I've got both monitors beside each other, and the one on the left side is plugged directly into the dual link DVI port on the back of my master 7950 in my crossfire configuration. The right-side monitor is plugged into an active displayport to dual link DVI adapter, which also requires a USB port for power.

When I notice this black screen effect, I also notice a small, thin blueish bar spanning the height of the right monitor, at the far right side of the screen; this bar looks about the same thickness as the side edge of an open window in Windows 8, but I've never been able to tell if that's what it is or not.
UPDATE: Upon closer inspection of the "blue bar", I can now tell that it doesn't look quite the same as the Windo... Read more

A:Dual monitors occasionally won't display anything after PC is idle

Update: I've discovered that usually the problem can be solved by unplugging and replugging the displayport adapter while the PC is on, but only if the aforementioned "blue line" is present on the right-hand screen when I move the mouse. Yesterday, I had a similar issue except that instead of turning back on and detecting the PC's video signal which is just a black screen for both of them (with blue bar on the right one), the monitors (both of them) refused to even acknowledge that there was a signal coming to them at all and wouldn't even turn their backlights on or wake from sleep mode. Even when I hooked up 2 different monitors using standard DVI-D single link or dual link cables, I still could not get any video signal to output at all, to ANY monitor.

Turning my speakers on, I found that I could hear the Windows 8 "device connect" and "device disconnect" sounds when I unplugged or replugged either of my 27" monitors, but nothing at all was heard when attempting to switch to other monitors. This tells me that Windows IS detecting and seeing the monitors, but somehow the video signal is just not reinitializing properly after the computer turns the monitors off after idle time.

The only solutions I've got at the moment are to set Windows to NEVER turn my monitors off, or to shut down the PC every single time I'm done with it; neither of these solutions are particularly pleasing to me. Please let me know if anyon... Read more

Hello, I recently purchased a Think Centre m91P seen here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883266694.
 
I have purchased a display port to VGA adaptor and have two external monitors up and running, that is one hooked to the display port and the other to the VGA input. 
 
Unfortunatley they are both running duplicate screens and when I go to display settings I don't have the option to ID or detect the 2nd monitor. I also don't have the option to extend the display and when I click on the drop down box for the display it only shows one input. 
 
Can anyone assist how I can get this up and running so I can function wit two monitors?
 
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Setting up dual monitors for extended display - ne...

That's not really how you run two monitors in "extended desktop" mode.  You are using a setup that is intended to provide identical output onto two monitors out of a single video card port.  This is actually equivalent to running "clone mode" from a video card that contains two ports to feed two monitors individually.
 
What you really want is simply a multi-port graphics card installed in your M91p, which provides connectivity to two monitors simultaneously from its two ports.  Then you can use the video card's drivers and/or Windows to configure your two connected monitors to run either in (a) clone mode, with identical output to both monitors, or (b) extended desktop mode, which spreads the Windows desktop "double-wide" to use the full horizontal expanse of both monitors so that you can drag windows back and forth across both.
 
I would suggest a very modesly priced ASUS Silence (fanless) HD6450 card, which includes both full-size and low-profile brackets in the retail box. So you can use it in either a tower or small-form-factor case.  Note that the VGA connector is available on the full-size bracket, so if you use the low-profile bracket in a SFF case you will only have the remaining two DVI and HDMI connectors.  If you have to connect to a monitor that only supports VGA, you'll have to use an adapter.  But if you have the option of a digital connection on both your monitors, then both the low-profile and full-size brackets will al...

I just recently connected dual TV P24 IPS monitors to my X1 Yoga (2nd Gen). The monitors are capable of displaying 2560x1440 rez. I have them both connected to the USB-C dock via display port.  One of the monitors displays fine, but the other won't display more than  1920x1080 and even then it continuously flickers. I've tried updating drivers, changing cables, etc.  Is the X1 Yoga not capable of outputting that resolution to both displays at the same time?

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.

It will run the laptop display and 1 monitor at 4k but not both monitors.

Asking this here because there isn't a general category. Which range of Lenovo laptops would support dual-monitors with least hassle? I think I'm asking which models have displayport outputs as that seems the preferred route. The product selection system on the website doesn't allow this granularity of filtering so one would have to look through the entire range! Thanks, Rob.
