Q: X1 Carbon 3rd Gen with OneLink+ dock - problem with 2 external monitors

Hello everybody,i am posting here because i really went through the whole www and still i have this issue, which is the following: My configuration is:X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Windows 10 64bit)OneLink+ docking2 x ThinkVision P27q-10 monitors. The problem:When i connect both monitors to the dock, i get only one running / working.The only way I get both monitors working is if i connect the second one on my miniDP port directly on the laptop. And in this configuration i can have all three monitors working (laptop display + 2 external) Obviously i want to have them both connected on the docking station and use it properly. Thanks in advance for any solutions / suggestions. Dean

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.

I'm unable to get my X1 Yoga to detect external monitors when plugged into the OneLink+ dock. This started occuring when my computer upgraded to the creators update. I thought I found a thread of others with the same issue (linked below), but it turns out I was waiting for a fix that didn't apply to me. I'm super frustrated right now. Stuff I've tried so far.1. Updated all drivers using Lenovo Service Bridge (even optional drivers)2. Installed the Fall Creators update preview (after being told it would fix the issue)3. Completely reinstalled Windows4. A Single VGA monitor5. A Single Display Port Monitor6. 6 different cables At this point I'm convinced there's an issue with the dock. There's a firmware update available for it, but you can't install it unless it is actively connected to a monitor (go figure).  When attempting to install, I get the code 255 "Can't connect to Synaptics VMMxxxx DP hub IC" If anyone has any sugestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. It used to work perfectly, then about the time I installed the creators update it started getting flaky, now I can't get it to work at all. Previous thread I was following. Note that I'm linking to a post where they show the dock working (annoying).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/Windows-10-creator-update-breaks-Lenovo-...

I have the exact same equipment at home and at work and yet the resolution on my second monitor at work will not go to the 3840 x 2160 that I have at home. Both locations have:1. X1 Yoga (first gen, model number 20FQ002YUS) -- It's the same laptop that I take between home and work2. ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (model number DU9047S1)3. Two (2) Asus monitors (model number PB287Q) that go to 3840 x 2160 max resolution, connected to the OneLink+ Dock via DiplayPort cables I've been running this configuation with NO PROBLEM at home for the past 9 months.  So I recently purchased a new OneLink+ Dock and two new monitors for my work office and while one monitor will go to 3840 x 2160, the other will not go above 1920 x 1080, UNLESS, I use a mini DisplayPort cable from the second monitor directly into the X1 Yoga (bypassing the OneLink+ Dock) HERE'S WHAT'S BAFFLING: I assumed it was the dock and so I brought the one from home to work and found I had the SAME problem, suggesting it was the second monitor.   But I exchanged the second monitor for a new one and still have the same problem.  The docks are running the most current firmware. I'll send a gift card to your favorite coffee house if you can solve this mystery.  Thanks!

Hi, Everyone. Got me a nice little x270 to replace my old x201.  Happy enough with the machine, but getting it connected to my accessories (monitor, keyb, mouse, ethernet) is a bit of a chore. This machine appears to have a "proper" dock port on the bottom.  Is there a compatible ultradock available for the model 20HN x270?  By proper - I mean, Not USB.  A nice dock I can simply drop the machine into when I'm at the home office.. Thanks!

Hi there, i have a new X1 Carbon 7th Gen with the new USB-C Dock Gen2. I have 3 Monitors connected with 1680x1050 native Resolution. I get only 2 working with this resolution. The third one will only get 576p. No matter if its connected to DP or HDMI. The last one doesnt get the full resolution.  I made a second test with a Lenovo ThinkVision P27h-10. I dont get it working over DP with 2560x1440 and a secondary monitor over DP. The ThinkVision Monitor falls back to 1920x1080.  All drivers are installed and the latest firmware of the Gen2 Dock is installed.  When i have connected 2 monitors to the dock and open the X1, the monitor of the x1 will get 1920 resolution. Whats wrong? I cannot belive that this new laptop isnt able to power 3 Monitors with 1680x1050 resolution.

Hello anybody, I got the brand new Carbon X1 with i7-5600U and OneLink Pro couple days ago and I have issues ever since.I have 2 main issues. 1. Laptop alone works like a charm, but when I connect the laptop to oneLink I can't get an image on my second exterior display via dvi nor via vga. The computer finds the screen and name etc, but when I want double or extend or only screen 2 projection nothing happens on the external screen. It keeps saying no input. I have tried to reinstall dock driver, change resolution, updated even bios, still nothing happens. 2. This problem is even more disturbing. If my computer is turned off or restarted while connected to OneLink dock pro, it won't start and freezes at lenovo logo. If I pust laptop to sleep while conected it boots normaly, if i turn it off not connected, then connect it and start it also boots normaly. But when it is shut down while conected it doesn't. Not even if i turn it off while connected, unplug it and turn it on. I have to do reset in this case. Guys I really need help, since those issues make my dock almost completly useless.HELP! Tilen_T

Sometimes when I connect the Onelink connector from the Onelink+ dock, the ethernet port is not detected.  The monitor shows up and usb ports function but there is no local area connection listed in the netword adapters.  If I disconnect the Onelink connector from the X1 and reconnect it, then suddenly the local area connection shows up and is there until the next time I redock the Onelink+.   Is this a known bug?  Anyone else having this problem? This is on Windows 7 x64 with all the latest drivers installed from the Lenovo website.

We have a few Lenovo displays we are replacing and wanted to get some USB-C displays for our few MacBook Pro users, but also work with our OneLink Pro & Ultra Docks. Ultra Dock works great with DisplayPort & HDMI. The MacBook Pro's work great with USB-C and Apple's USB to ethernet gets us all set there. The issue is the X1 (gen 3) with OneLink Pro dock. When we setup the dock with DisplayPort it shows the display is connected in the Display Properties, along with resolution and extended desktop, but the display itself shows nothing and has an orange light. We tried 3 different docks and laptops, 2 different P24h displays, and 3 different DisplayPort cables. Confirmed both the display and dock support DisplayPort 1.2. Any idea on what I can do to get this going? So far this is the best display we could find that covers all our bases for our needs.

A few days ago I was prompted to install an urgent BIOS update.  I followed the screen prompts and the system rebooted and flashed the BIOS.  Our company laptops all have Sophos encryption, which requires a separate login prior to booting the OS (Win7).  I've always been able to enter user ID and password information on that screen using the USB keyboard connected to my OneLink+ dock (which is connected to the laptop). Following this BIOS update, I can no longer use the keyboard or mouse (also USB) connected to the OneLink+ dock until the OS boots.  I have to open my laptop, enter my Sophos ID and password on the laptop keyboard, then close the laptop.  Once the OS (Win7) boots, I can use both the USB devices fine.  Interestingly enough, the monitor attached to the OneLink+ dock functions just fine before the OS boots up. I checked BIOS settings and couldn't see anything there that looked odd or out of place.  I also checed Device Manager to see if there were any warnings or issues, and didn't see anything. I tried to downgrade the BIOS to an earlier version, but once you are above 1.23 that is not possible.  I did flash to the latest release - 1.27 - but that did not fix the issue. So I'm stuck with a rather awkward login process which was not an issue until this BIOS version was installed a few days ago.  I've reviewed other post for similar issues but have not found anything that points at a solution thus far...

Hi,
I have just upgraded from an E6410 to an E7440. I have two Dell 2007FP monitors connected via DVI on an E-series E-Port Plus dock. The native resolution of these monitors is 1600x1200 @ 60 Hz and my old E6410 was able to run this just fine. The new E7440 however refuses to see that 1600x1200 is available and has an upper limit of 1280x1024 @ either 60 or 75 Hz. The Intel graphics properties app does show that 1600x1200 @ 60 Hz is a supported mode of the monitor in the Information Center section, but it won't let me select it in the Display Options section.
Anyone know if this is a fundamental limitation of the docking connector on the new 7000 series or if I just have something set wrong somewhere? All the drivers are up to date as far as the Dell support site is concerned ... The machine is running Windows 7 64 bit if that makes a difference.
Thanks & regards,

Sorry - should have come back sooner as my IT guys at work found the "fix". This is a driver update that is for the E7440 but doesn't come up if you search for E7440 updates (???). Anyway, I got the required driver from:

Whilst the link is from the E5540 area, the driver is for the Intel HD4400 GPU that is in the E7440 as well. This has fixed the issue on all the E7440s we have here.

When one is connected via VGA both monitors are detected, however the one connected via VGA will flicker or blink off and on. Disconnecting the ThinkPad dock solves this issue. I have tried the following:Uninstalled and reinstalled graphics driversUpdated dock firmwareRun updates on graphics driversChecked different cablesChecked different monitorsChecked different dockChecked different laptopRun Lenovo VGA fix The Lenovo VGA fix would not complete and ended up in error loop.

Hello, I just bought an X1 Carbon Gen 4 and need to hook up 2 external monitors which have VGA, HDMI or DVI ports available. The idea is to have a 3 monitor setup (all three monitors with a resolution of 1920x1080) including the Built-in monitor and the 2 external ones. I have bought the OneLink+ adapter that has the RJ45 and VGA ports (4X90J31060) and am trying to set the whole rig up so that one monitor connects to the VGA port on the adapter and the other monitor is connected through the HDMI port on the laptop. The problem is that I can only seem to get 2 monitors going at a time, either Built-in & HDMI or Built-in & VGA. Before I go and buy more hardware (i.e. dock or MiniDP to HDMI/DVI adaptor), I was wondering if what I am attempting is even possible, and if it is, what I am doing wrong. Thanks to anyone who can answer.

So, and with respect, please don't post "have you tried applying" ... unless you happen to know that this is specific fix for something - I reckon I have been through the random try everything approach. What I'd like is: 1) to be able to work at my desk - touch something to say "I am away" and have power saved my two external monitors switch off but for the machine to go back to where I was when I ...

I have an X1, fairly new, and it is connected to a OneLink docking station.  The docking station has two monitors attached via display port. When I lock the computer to leave my area and come back to unlock the computer (after as little as a minute), the external monitors have turned off to standby and it takes5-10 seconds to turn on from standby mode.  I would prefer that my external monitors stay on, while the computer is locked. I have attached a picture of the computer display/power settings.

Hello,I have Lenovo X1 Carbon 6gen with i7-8550U docked in the Lenovo Ultra Dock and I just bought three Lenovo P27h lcds. Those LCDs are connected via two displayport connectors. In one displayport connector is one lcd, in second is two lcds in daisy chain configuration. All lcds works but the problem is that on the one is highest availaible resulotion just 1920x1200 or 1920x1080. It is not the problem of lcd or the daisy chain because when I disconnet one lcd I get the proper resolution on it also (2560x1440). According to intel specs it should not be problem of graphics card which should be powerfull enought to handle it. Have anyone have similar issue? Do anyone have an idea how to solve it? Thank you. Ondrej.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad X1 yoga 1st gen connect 2 external monitors apart from laptop display via onelink VG

Hi,
 
The way I read the X1YG1 base specs it supports two independent monitors.  Apologies, but I can't quite parse your post.  Does "apart from laptop screen" mean that you want 3 monitors total, or two and the laptops's display is off?
 
supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort;supports dual independent displays;

I am using this setup and getting blurry text on my Dell 2008WFP, but not on the other monitor which is a Dell U2412M.  Both are connected through he 2 separate DisplayPorts. I have been using this same setup with no issues for 5 years through my Lenovo T440p, older compatible Lenovo Pro Dock station and a DisplayPort connection to the 2008WFP and VGA to the U2412M (the older pro docks could only do dual monitors if one of the two connections was VGA). I have tried:Swapping cablesSwapping cordsToggling Windows 10 display settings:On/Off ?Fix scaling for apps?Different numbers for ?Enter a custom scaling size between 100%-500%.Updating the pro dock firmware.Updating the Dell monitor driver.Updating all Lenovo and Windows updatesI have also called into Lenovo support, but to no avail. Thanks in advance

Hello all, i have the following problem at any X1 4th generation we are using at our company:if you connect the X1 with the OneLink+ always you can see the that "ThinkPad OneLink Plus Dock Audio" is marked with a yellow ! and if you click on properties you can see that the driver is not digitally signed.As i have tried the latest driver and also the latest firmware at the moment i don't have any idea what to do.If i start the system using the F8 key and choosing "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" it will be shown without the yellow ! but after a restart the ! appears again...Using "gpedit.msc" and switching off to check the digital signature is not an option...And the second problem is that if you use the 3.5 plug at the OneLink+ audio does not work with a headset - if you use the 3.5 plug at the X1 it works...Does anybody have the same problems? I have this on every X1 used with the OneLink+ Dock...Any suggestions - or solutions?Many thanks in advance! Scotty

I could not connect via Ethernet using the TPY (Win 8.1) and Onelink Dock (basic).  With all updated software, the TPY kept trying to connect to the USB3-ethernet in the Dock but could not start the hardware. I received a USB device not recognized which cycled during a session and seemed to screw up other parts of the system. Thinking it was a driver issue I uninstalled all the ASIX drivers and removed all the driver packages associated with the ASIX AX88179 and AX88178 controller   (see:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730875.aspx  ). Then ran Windows update which downloaded yet another ASIX package. I downloaded both the Win 7 and Win 8 driver packages from ASIX, unzipped and looked these over.  I modified the *.inf files and deleted all the non-english segments with asian or Russian characters at the end of the file leaving only the English segment and saved these on the C: drive.  (http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131) I reloaded the OneLink drivers from Lenovo.  Ethernet not recognized.From Device Manager,  I tried to update the Ethernet controller driver to the new downloaded, modified Win 8 driver and received the message that the driver was the current driver so it would not update. Instead, I had DM browse for the Windows 7 driver, and loaded that.  Ethernet not recognized. Then I had DM browse for the modified Windows 8 driver.  Thi...

A:One Onelink dock Thinkpad Yoga problem solved.

Wow, glad that you found a solution! Hope you don´t mind if I ask a few questions, just so that I understand better what to do? 1. Would you mind providing a little more info on what you exaclty removed in the Win 8 .inf driver file from Asix? 2. When you mention ´DM loaded the modified driver´, I take it you mean the modified Asix inf driver, not the one you downloaded from Lenovo?3. In your estimation, is the USD2 dongle step required?thanks again.cheers,Olof

I recently got a Thinklpad P1 from my company for work, together with a Thunderbolt 3 dock. The installed OS is Ubuntu Linux 18.10 (standard flavour, with Gnome). When I set the graphics to "Hybrid" in the Bios, the 2 external displays plugged in the dock are not detected. Network and USB work fine. When I switch to "Discrete", both monitor are detected and work fine. It's annoying, because the laptop heats up more, the fan runs almost all the time and if I use the laptop unplugged the battery is drained much faster, unless I switch temporarily back to Hybrid. I'm grateful for any help!
