I have connected a Thinkpad X1 carbon (model:20BS0057AD) to ThinkPad OneLink Dock which further connects to a ThinkVision Pro2820 28-inch LCD monitor using DisplayPort. In order for the display to work through the dock I have to power down and power up the Dock and Monitor for the monitor to receive display signal. Once its working and I disconnect the dock from the laptop and reconnect it back, the monitor will not come on and remain in low power mode with amber light. I then have to go through the power down and power up cycle for the monitor to display laptop output signal or else it will remain in low power mode.

This model is with Xeon CPU, Quadro P2000 graphics card and 1080 screen. The model of the monitor is Dell U2713HM.  When I connect my P52 to this dell monitor via a miniDP to Displayport cable, the monitor model is recognized in "Nvidia control panel" and "Display settings" of Windows, but in Display setting it shows "second display is not active".

There are countless threads and posts with consumers/owners expressing issues with Lenovo ThinkPad workstations which are not delivering on expected (marketed) features/functionality, due to software related issues. Namely:
- ThinkPad Workstations lose support for external monitors when 'awoken' from Sleep mode and/or Hibernate mode
- Switching the graphics card leveraged by the system has no impact on performance (issues persist)
- It seems the only recourse is to restart the affected laptop and/or not use the features and functionality available on the device
--- this is also the most common "solution" presented to users in threads and/or users are advised to not to use multi-monitor configurations outright
 
Although many systems may be impacted, this post focuses on issues on the ThinkPad P50, the latest Workstation, which happens to have a NVIDIA Quadro M2000M graphics card.
- All BIOS/Firmware/Software is up-to-date as of writing, however, the issue persists
 
This sort of performance from a modern business-grade workstation is unacceptable.
 
As an owner of the Thinkpad P50, I would like to see this issue investigated & fixed before 2017 -- given there are threads/posts that go back, even beyond this year. This seems to be a known issue that's being willfully ignored by Lenovo and/or Think Engineering. If the issue cannot be resolved, then Lenovo needs to assume responsibility.

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

A:Thinkpad Carbon X1 Display BLANK after Update - External Monitor Works

I spent a day working on an issue and want to share to save folks time.  Bottom line, Intel Graphics Drivers WDDM 1.0, 1.1., 1.2, 1.3 automatically updated with Windows and broke the system. BIOS and Lenovo splash screen showed and safe mode worked fine showing this was not a hardware issue.  Windows began to load and the screen went black.  I connected an external monitor via HDMI, pressed power for 2 seconds to put the machine to sleep, pressed power again for 2 seconds and it woke up on the 2nd monitor. In Device Manager, the 2nd (HP w2007) monitor showed up and there was no mention of the laptop physically connected display. I reinstalled Windows 10 and all was well until the auto-update occurred and I had the same issue.I installed Windows 7 and all was well until I installed all updates, same issue. I didn't think this was a display adapter problem because the 2nd monitor worked just fine and it was the monitor that didn't show in Device Manager.  Alas, my assumption was incorrect. After HOURS of selecting which Windows 7 updates to install, nearly 180, I finally narrowed it down.  I thought it was a Windows problem, turns out this was an Intel Graphics driver issue. SOLUTION: I used Revo Uninstaller to remove the Intel Graphics driver program and the system recovers.  Sadly, in both Windows 10 and WIndows 7, the auto updates would put the drivers back and the same problem recurred.  I was finall...

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

Hello everyone, As described in the title, I have an issue with my Yoga 720 15" with the GTX1050 and external monitors. The external display disconnects whenever I launch a game in fullscreen mode or when I change and apply display settings in Windows 10 (for example when I change from extend to pc screen only and then back to extend). Basically whenever the screen has to turn black and reload new graphical settings. The only solution then is to replug the HDMI cable on the monitor.  I have tested this with multiple monitors and TVs as well as different types of connections such as usb-c to HDMI cables and usb-c hubs with integrated HDMI ports. Graphics drivers are all up to date.  Can anyone help me out here?

This happens as soon as the VGA adapter is plugged in. Unplugging it does not turn the laptop screen back on. Toggling with the function keys does nothing. Since I cannot see anything I cannot try to adjust/correct display settings (or do anything for that matter, other than turn the laptop off by holding power key down).

The second display works (tested with a different laptop).

History: The external display worked fine with this laptop. We had a power failure yesterday which turned it off. The screen toggled to the laptop successfully (or I did, with the function keys--I don't remember) and I continued working. When power returned I started running into this issue. I reinstalled the display drivers from the original manufacturer disc but the problem persists.

To shut down properly hit the Winkey, then the right arrow, then Enter.

This may be as simple as capacitors overcharged. Shut down, unplug, remove battery. Hold power button down for 20 secs.

I have a 2008 Intel iMac running Windows 7 through Boot Camp. I am seeing some weird display behaviors in Windows 7 that I can't explain or seem to fix. There are diagonal lines that move across the screen from right to left. There seems to be some distortion on certain images. For example sometimes areas of the screen will suffer from visual degradation similar to what you see with JPEG compression on the web. Certain colors and patterns appear to produce the effect more than others.

The graphics card is the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT.

I doubt it's a hardware issue because it doesn't happen in OS X. It also didn't happen in Windows XP.

If I have downloaded all the latest drivers per Boot Camp's recommendations. I have been on the phone with Apple support and they have basically told me that they won't help since it only happens in Windows and not OS X (despite the fact that I still have a year left on my Apple Care).

I tried contacting AMD, who apparently not owns ATI, and they basically refused to help as well. Actually, they told me that they recommend I use the Boot Camp drivers but that if I did that they wouldn't support me. Jackasses.

If I manually update the ATI drivers the problem immediately goes away, but as soon as I reboot, log off, or even lock the computer, it comes right back.

Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do? Apparently nobody wants to take responsibility for this issue.

A:Display Distortion under ATI Drivers on iMac

Welcome to Seven Forums: You could always try to use the latest ATI driver for your card then follow the instructions on this site ATI MobilityModder - HardwareHeaven.com and modify your .inf file since your card is listed. I would suggest uninstalling the current driver, then use Driver Cleaner or Driver Sweeper to completely remove all remants of the driver. Then try the mod. Both of the cleaner programs can be easily found on guru3d. Fabe

My ThinkPad T500 running 64-bit Windows 7 Professional Edition worked great on and off a mini docking station with 2 external monitors. The dual-display setup allowed me to have more desktop space; when needed, I can take the laptop off the docking station (following undocking steps) and use it anywhere. This convenience no longer holds after upgrading to Windows 10.

With the T500 in the docking station (LCD lid closed), I can use the dual-display setup as in Windows 7. However, after shut-down and remove the T500 off the docking station and the T500 laptop becomes unusable because its LCD display doesn't show anything after boot. (While booting the laptop's display shows the ThinkPad boot logo and then some DOS-mode boot messages and then the windows 10 logo and its dotted spinning wheel; after the initial boot the display went blank and the Windows 10 desktop doesn't come up.)

The only way to make the T500 laptop usable on its own is to go through a "preparation procedure" and here is how the procedure goes: While the T500 is on the docking station in the dual-display setup with the 2 external monitors, open the T500's lid and set its display as the main display and then select to disconnect the other 2 external displays (in the Settings -> System -> Display page); then , in the T500's LCD display, select the shut down. Once the T500 is properly powered off, remove it from the docking station and the T500 can work on its own as a laptop supposed to be. W... Read more

After I got the laptop I installed 32Gb of RAM and an 512Gb Samsung 950Pro PCIE M.2 NVME drive.The drive should be support as Dell states on the product page and in the manual that PCIE with NVME is supported.
"Advanced features, like industry-leading M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe/NVME solid state drives, provide data transfer speeds up to 4x faster over traditional hard drivers. "
In order to get the drive visible and running on PCIe I had to disable the sata controller in the BIOS.This way the drive is detected in Windows as an PCIe NVME capable drive.
Just to verify if the issues I went back to default with the delivered 256Gb M.2 sata drive and 8Gb RAM.To install Windows I had to turn the Sata controller back on.
Installed the drivers manually updated WIndows and tested.The issues do NOT occur.

I have Dell Inspiron 5547 laptop (Touch Screen, 15 inches, 16 GB RAM and i7 4th Gen processor, Out of Warranty). Some days back, suddenly the display went dim and anything is hardly visible. After some initial investigation, the display chip (may be VGA or LED display chip) on the motherboard appears to be burnt out (may be due to voltage surge). Even the numbers printed on the chip is not readable because of which it is difficult for the local repairing shops to repair this problem.
I think Dell India Service Center doesn't deal with chip level repair and hence replacing motherboard is the only way they can fix this. This will be very costly (considering that the laptop is not under warranty so will have to pay for warranty extension, motherboard replacement and repair service) and time consuming.
Hence, to avoid all this I have come here to seek some assistance.
If there are anyone using the same laptop (Inspiron 5000 series 5547 Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM) then could you please take a clear picture of your laptop's motherboard or if you recognize the display chip then only that should be sufficient. In this case, I can read the chip related number from the image and try to repair it.
What are the charges for buying a warranty for the laptop, motherboard of my laptop and repairing charge? 

Request your response and help.

A:Display Issue - Dim Display for Dell Inspiron 5000 (Model 5547) - Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM

You'll have to call Dell about the possibility of a warranty extension;  in the US, it's sometimes possible but will likely run over $300 -- or about what a board replacement would cost.
If you're getting video, the GPU is OK -- and it's more likely the power circuit to the backlight that's bad.  It'll likely cost as much to repair as to replace the board -- though you'll still be putting $300-400 into an out of warranty system, so replacing the system may be a better idea (if you do this, consider buying a 3-year warranty with the next system).

I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop running Windows 10. I have just purchased a Dell U2515H monitor which I am waiting for delivery for as we speak. I believe the monitor has quiet a few inputs however I am not 100% sure which lead to get to connect them both and which port I use on the Dell Laptop. Looking on the left hand side of my laptop there is a port with a lightning sign next to it, is that called Thunderbolt? and is that my monitor/display port? and what lead do I need? it looks like some sort of micro socket!

So I'm not really sure what is going on but when I decided to wake my computer from sleep, it decided to showed this "pixelated" screen while at the same time, being unresponsive forcing a hard restart Attached is a photo of the issue. I would like to find out what caused this issue since it's happened two times already..something to note too is I also noticed I started having problems with the Thunderbolt 3 (i.e. notification with the driver having issues with Windows Creator Update) Any insight would be awesome :b hopefully its only a software issue and nothing more...

I have an old ThinkPad T500 that I was planning to give to my younger brother so he can do school work.  Running Windows Vista Ultimate.  A few months back, the internal display was acting intermittently, meaning it would not display anything (dark screen) but if you connected an external monitor, it would work fine.  After a second or third reboot, the internal display would come on. This morning I turned it on and the monitor had parallel color lines in various patterns.  I can hear the laptop running and booting up.   After a couple of minutes, I plugged in an external monitor - nothing.  I rebooted the machine and the same color pattern was displaying on the internal display.  This time, the external monitor came on and booted up in 800 x 600 mode.  When I went into Device Manager > Display it shows "Standard VGA Adapter".  I recall that this laptop comes with switchable graphics between the Intel GMA 4500MHD and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (256 MB).  Is the video card bad or is it just the actual display?

It could be both, difficult to say without having the actual ThinkPad at hand.
 
I don't remember by heart the BIOS settings in the T500, but please try going to the BIOS (press F1 right after turning on the laptop) and go to "Config" and "Display", select only the integrated graph, save and reboot.  Keep us posted how it goes...
 
Hopefully that would fix the screen problems...

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?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, I've seen a lot of discussion on this topic but still could not find a solution for my case. So, I have a basic FHD display on my P51 and no integrated Pantone calibration tool. Could you please advise my which is the best way to calibrate the display (also has an issue with yellow tint). Do I need to by external device or just download certain color profile or software? Many thanks!

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.

I was told that the display on a laptop is very fragil, and that you should never, NEVER touch it with anything. What is a safe way of cleaning the TFT display? I work in a pretty dusty environment and the TFT is developing a "crust" which I want to remove before it gets any worse. Any ideas out there?

I purchased my t450s but after i used it for two months. one morning the screen started blinking for about a minute and after that is does not display anymore. It works when connected to an external monitor. I tried all that I could but the screen won't display

A:ThinkPad T450s screen does not display

Hi Senyo,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you are facing issue with your display in T450s.
Looks like you have a bad LCD panel & it needs to be changed so better contact Lenovo & replace under warranty.
Also you can try moving the LCD lid at certain angle whether display is coming or not.
 
I hope the above information helps.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hey everyone,

All of a sudden, my display will flicker, and eventually turn off on my LCD panel. Every time i change the display modes (lcd, external monitor, or both) it comes back for a short time, but then flickers and shuts off. I know it is not a driver problem because the display works with an external monitor. SO, if anyone knows what i should do next.....PLZZZZ tell me, because I WANT MY LAPTOP BACK!!! lol...its like a desktop now.
