I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I have a Yoga 11s that started having hdmi connection issues about a year ago and has recently quit connecting to an external monitor via HDMI completely. We tried upgrading to Windows 10 to see if that would overwrite any software issues - no luck. The HDMI port actually appears loose. I did an extensive search of the forum and found posts that recommended cutting down the rubber around the base of the hdmi cord - tried that and at least I had a little activitiy - in the upper right hand corner of the external monitor up popped a box that says DVI then VGA then HDMI - but then says No Signal. Tried the graphics card update recommended on a post from long time ago and a popup indicated I had a newer version already installed. I have taken it to a laptop repair place - said they couldn't get parts from Lenovo. I found an "authorized" Lenovo repair shop locally - when I called they said they only work on business machines Called Lenovo and they told me to take it to Best Buy - however since I purchased this directly from Lenovo, Best Buy said they can't work on it. I would rather not send it into Lenovo because they tried to charge my hubby hundreds of dollars when his 15 day brand new laptop quit working, claiming damage - luckily extensive pictures taken and dated prior to sending it in thwarted that attempt at extortion. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to be able to do presentations and work remotely with this so it is no... Read more

Hello! When I connect my Yoga 900 laptop to my Samsung external monitor using a USB-C/HDMI adapter, the laptop screen flashes black and the external screen does nothing. Between the flashes I can see my desktop background goes blue and every program/file that is open begins popping up and closing on repeat. Nothing ever shows on the external monitor. The only fix is to unplug the two, but if I let the laptop flash for more than about a minute it eventually goes black. When this happens, unplugging it from the monitor does nothing and it has to be manually restarted using the side button. As noted in other forum solutions, I manually updated all video and chip drivers.I have tested the monitor's HDMI port, the Yoga 900's USB-C port, and the HDMI cable itself. I have also tried a different brand of USB-C adapter. Pressing Windows + P doesn't seem to do much, as I can see the menu between the flashes and click "expand" but nothing happens. Any idea what else I can do? Thank you.

I have disabled notebook's screen and I use only monitors, however it is impossible to use the Yoga Notebook in this mode, because my mouse cursor freezes every 5 seconds. I am unable to perform any productive tasks while using external monitors, which is very frustrating. I tried looking at the forum and have found that maybe disabling Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework (DPTF) might solve my issues, however when I boot into the BIOS I don't see any Intel DPTF option available under configuration window. Does anyone encountered similar issues?

In a strange twist Lenovo decided not to include a dedicated display port with the 720 13". The USB-C Thunderbolt port can be used as a displayport, but then, obviously, can't be used as a thunderbolt 3 port.I have a $800 dollar thunderbolt 3 card. What I'd like to do is get video out of my laptop to a bigger monitor so I can do work.I tried a USB-3 docking station and it was a nightmare.Is there any way I can use an external docking port to access the displayport in my laptop AND connect my thunderbolt 3 soundcard?I erroneously assumed that all this new technology would enable me to use multiple displays like on my old desktop computer, but what I'm finding is the USB3 solution introduced tons of lag, when it worked at all, and slowed down my computer.If anyone has any solutions, please let me know.

You might also need to enable an external display in Settings > System > Display.  But to my knowledge, Lenovo USB-C ports aren't Thunderbolt, so some things that work well on an Apple won't on anything else.

I just bought myself a very nice 22inch Dell E2209WF monitor. I connected it with a VGA cable to my USB3 connector and nothing. So I went down to PC World and tried the same with several monitors and nothing. So I tried a micro HDMI to several monitors and still nothing. I'm running Windows 10. Am I missing something very basic ? I've always assumed the Yoga 2 11 could be connected to an external monitor. 

A:Connecting a Yoga 2 11 to an external monitor

Hi, welcome.
 
It shouldn't be hard to connect an external monitor to a laptop. What kind of port does it has? mini DP? HDMI?
 
What I had see on other cases is that some cables and adapters may produce some problems. So trying different ones that you may have arround, or connecting the laptop to a near by TV just to be sure it is not also the monitor.
 
My only ideas are:
1) Try Win+P key combination to be sure that you ar extending or duplicating the screen with the secondary monitor.
 
2) From the Yoga 2 11 support site, try update the video driver and see if something improves.
 
Give it a try to see if something works.

I am thinking of getting the Yoga 3, and occasionaly I would like to use an external monitor. My question is, can I put the yoga in kind of a shallow tent mode, and still use the keyboard? I'm guessing the keyboard and trackpad are disabled when you flip the thing into tablet mode, but what about in tent? SO, from the closed position, I am hoping to open it about 200 degrees or so, or anything slightly greater than having it lay flat at 180 degrees. Will this work? Thanks!

No, when your are over 180, the KB and pad are disabled. But you can buy bluetooth KB and mouse.. What you want to do is weird, what's the point of plug an other screen if you do not see the first one ? TV ?

Yoga 730-13IKB, Type 81CT, Windows 10, 64-bit Before I purchase an expensive external monitor, like HP's Z27 4K monitor, I'd like to find documentation on the Yoga series support for external monitors, and the potential for the laptop to also be charging, all from that single cable.  Most likely, the arrangement would be using a single USB port to a hub that provides HDMI or DP -- can the Yoga deliver 4K (or lesser QHD), at 60Hz? After about 20 minutes of searching and reading user manuals, 620 integrated graphics reference material, and whether HDR is supported and whether HDCP 2.2 is provided.... sigh. I'm looking for a document written for an end user that accounts for the inherent capabilities of the integrated graphics chipset and OS, the limitations of the USB 3.0 Type-C interface, and describes what range of resolutions can be driven.  If the UBS hub makes a difference, then at least tackle part of that problem with a paragraph of "what to look for" in a USB hub, or "we've tested with the following," in order to successfully drive (and possibly receive laptop charging) from high resolution external monitors.  Use the HP Z27 4K monitor as an example.

Hi xenocider , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As this was also discussed on this thread. 
Yoga 900 USB Type C is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible 
 
As per article: 


The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_ug_en_201509.pdf)
Adding to the above:  Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack. 
 
Articles for reviews: 
USB 3.1 Type-C port. There are no indications that this is a Gen. 2 Type-C port (10 Gbps) with Thunderbolt capability 
Lenovo Yoga 900 reviews 

 

As I can see , although it is not possible at the moment future upgrades may happen.
Hope this answered your query.

I have had a Yoga 900 for 8 months and had no problems connecting to my TV and monitor with a USBc-to-HDMI adapter. This week I have tried using my normal setup, and the display on the laptop screen is fine but the extended or duplicated image on any external screen it flickers. Every two minutes or so, the monitor says 'no signal' for a second and then the image returns, sometimes after thin white lines flash across the screen. Additionally, using the laptop speakers when connected to a TV/Monitor is fine, but nothing can be heard when trying to use the speakers of the HDMI connected device. I have tried flashing the BIOS, updating with the latest graphics card drivers on Lenovo's website, using a new CableCreations adapter, switching HDMI cables, switching TVs, un- and plugged into the AC adapter. Nothing changes. I have also used a USBc->HDMI->VGA adapter/cable, and the flashing lines disappear but the the external display continues to cut-out periodically. I would appreciate any ideas about why this problem would surface now, and/or how to resolve it.

Welcome to the forums!
 
I have a suspicion it has to do with the video scaling setting on the SyncMaster. If you go to Picture > Advanced Settings > Picture Settings, look for Size. Change it to Screen Fit. There may also be a button on your remote to change the Video Mode / Aspect Ratio or something similar.

I have 2 ordinary external monitors attached to my new yoga 910, and both the monitors have  fonts have a washed out look, sort of like 1/2 their pixels are missing. This only happens in Windows applications such as Visual studio and MS Word menus, not in web browsers or other applications.  One monitor is via an hdmi cable to the Type C connector, the second is via an external graphics card and a hub to the USB drive. Both monitors exhibit the same issue. Does anyone else have this? It worked OK under my previous laptop. The Yoga screen is awesome, so thats not the issue, just the external montors when using some windows applications.

I am going to detail my experience connecting my brand new Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB-80Y70063US to my also brand new LG 43UD79-B 43" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor which has a USB-C port in addition to its 2xHMDI/DP/2xUSB3.0 ports. First of all , it works! I get both power delivery and am able to extend the screen onto the monitor in 4K resolution using one USB-C cable. I am writing here to help others, but also because there is a power cycling order in which it does not work, which I would like to know if someone knows what it is. If I play with it enough, I get back to making it work again, but have not figured out the order of rebooting, connecting and disconnecting cables where it consistently works. Power delivery is always working through the cable, the monitor extension is what I have to play to get it working. OK, so here are the steps I need to get these to to work together: 1 - After unboxing Yoga 920, run windows update and reboot several times until it says there is nothing else to update. (windows 10) 2 - Used Google Chrome as Web browser 3 - Go onto LG website to update Drivers/Software:http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-43UD79-B#manuals43UD79 Win10 R3 Driver LG_ULTRA_HD.zip 36K[Windows] OnScreen Control - version 2.82 Win_OSC_2.82.zip 111138K 4 - Purchase USB-C to USB-C CableThis one worked for me :https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L0F6IK4[USB-IF Certified] Cable Matters USB 3.1 Type-C (10 Gbps) Gen 2 Cable with 4K Video & Po...

Connecting the sleeping X1 to a dock (Lenovo Thunderbold 3 dock) and then waking it up (lid closed) gives bad colorors and contrast on the external monitor connected to the dock. Restarting the X1 connected to the dock gives normal colors and contrast on the same external monitor. System is W10Pro 1709 64-bit.Any ideas or help?

I bought a Yoga 920 for my B'day and love it. Now I want to buy it presents. I am looking for a 27-inch external monitor and I hope you guys will help me out. 1) Does the 920 accept an external monitor's multi-touch input? Is that function called WQHD? The documentation isn't clear. 2) Is there a paticular type of USB3 dock that works for the 920 hookup? Or does one have to wing it with an HDMI cable? 3) What is this auto connect feature for external monitors that Win10 mentions? Does the Yoga have it and is it now standard on most modern monitors? Thank you for any thoughts you might have.

hi, I have setup one of my faculty with a Yoga 920131KB plus Thunderbolt 3 Dock. He has an existing monitor (Samsung Syncmaster P2450) that should support 1920x1080. Seems to be current on all drivers and patches under Win10 EDU version. (Including the CCG4 Firmware Update to v55). We are using the HDMI output from the dock. If we try to configure extended desktop to the Samsung monitor at 1920x1080, the screen extends off both sides about half an inch. Maybe also a quarter inch over at the top.  As a work-around, set at 1680x1050, video generally works as expected, but the display starts about 2" in from either side. Generally I don't like using add-on utilities (prefer to just use standard windows built-in options), but somewhere along the line this has the Intel Graphics HD Utility.  I was using that to switch resolution, the Windows settings seemed to track along with changes in the Intel utility, but still overscanned the display.  I played with some other settings in the utility about Display Scale (other than 100%), didn't seem to change anything. A second problem occurs with this setup: when the laptop is used at home, put to sleep, then plugged into the dock, the screen is displayed on the external monitor at maybe 200% (?).  That is, you only see the central portion of the image.  No fiddling with settings seems to correct it, but rebooting usually fixes it. The second problem also occurs with a similar Yoga 920 + Dock (d...

Also wanted to mention something I noticed while working on this: I saved a log from the Intel Utility. There is a section in there about "Maximum Image Size". This seemed to be correct for the laptop display (12.2"x6.69") but the Samsung was listed at 6.3" x 3.54"    It is a 24" diagonal display, so that is obviously wrong, but I don't know that it is important. Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 Report Date: Monday, February 5, 2018Report Time [hh:mm:ss]: 1:21:19 PMDriver Version: 23.20.16.4849Operating System: Windows* 10 Education (10.0.16299)Physical Memory: 16225 MBVendor ID: 8086Device ID: 5917Device Revision: 07Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) Version: 9.0.1066Current Resolution: 1680 x 1050 Display Type: DigitalDDC2 Protocol: SupportedGamma: 2.2Connector Type: DisplayPortDevice Type: DisplayPortMaximum Image SizeHorizontal Size: 6.3 inchesVertical Size: 3.54 inches
