Just purchased a X1 Yoga with OLED display - Windows 10, intel i7, etc. I have a Dell monitor at work and when I connect it to the HDMI port on my laptop, it recognizes the monitor (control panel/Intel HD graphics). However, the monitor keeps showing a message "No HDMI cable. the display will go into power save mode in 5 minutes". Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried updating all the drivers, the windows button + P, nothing works. I'm desperate!

My X1 Yoga 2nd Gen OLED has a great feature wherein, outside of normal Windows screen dimming, within the Lenovo Settings app, user can set a "Task Bar Dimmer" timeout and a "Background Dimmer" timeout. This is described as a power-saving feature, but in reality its a great way to ensure that the OLED screen doesn't experience burn-in over time when on-screen items are displayed for prolonged periods. However, when I connect to an external monitor (which is almost always), the Task Bar Dimmer and Background Dimmer ONLY affect the external monitor and no longer affect the OLED display, where (IMO) this is far more important. Am I missing something, or is this a bug? Dimming the taskbar on the OLED is far more critical than on my monitor.

When watching videos at full screen, or just in a browser, the screen will turn to half brightness after minutes of inactivity. I have my display set to only do this after an hour in "Power and Sleep" options. In advanced settings I have the auto brightness off, and the "dimmed brightness display" set to 100%. Am I missing something here? Is this something unique to the OLED display? I've never had this problem before in a laptop

I'm using a USB-C to HDMI adapter (using the DisplayPort over USB standard, not an older DisplayLink type) to use an external display on the Yoga 730 and it has issues when running as 2 separate displays (everything works fine when mirroring or using only the external display). If you set the graphics settings to "extend these displays" the Windows 10 shell seems to wedge itself (can interact with already running apps, but cannot start new apps or use the taskbar/start menu) and the bottom of each display flickers (looks like a flickering ghost taskbar). I don't suspect a hardware issue with the adapter because it works perfectly in mirroring or single-display mode; instead I suspect a graphics driver bug. Others that use this adapter on other PCs have no problems. I'd love to try a newer version of the Intel 620 graphics driver but it won't install (it says it's incompatible with this system and to contact the computer manufacturer)... Lenovo's customized version of the driver is 4 months old. I have all the latest drivers installed via Lenovo Vantage, Intel's web interface (it only installed newer Wifi and Bluetooth drivers), and Windows Update. The laptop is running Windows 10 1803 17134.112 (2018 Creator's update).

I just bought a Lenovo X1 Yoga with OLED display. It is supposed to have very accurate colors (98% AdobeRGB, Delta-E at 0.55 or better with calibration), but when I tried calibrating it with my X-Rite i1Display Pro, I kept getting strange banding artifacts in the results (and yes, I did choose OLED display type before starting measurement in i1Profiler). Due to the strange banding artifacts, I had to go back to using the color profiles provided by Lenovo (they come in Native, Standard, Pro Photo, Movie Pro, Blue Light Cut for Office, Blue Light Cut for Reading). I use Pro Photo, which is AdobeRGB.  I've tried several times now, and I always get the weird banding artifacts. So does this mean X1 Yoga's OLED display cannot be calibrated with i1Display Pro?  When I compare X1 Yoga's colors with my Dell Ultrasharp U3011 (which is calibrated with i1Display Pro, and has 117% AdobeRGB color gamut, and 1.12 Delta-E after calibration), my U3011 is a bit cooler (a bit more blue, less yellow), while the X1 Yoga is warmer (less blue, more yellow).  So which is the more accurate one I can trust? Can the X1 Yoga OLED screen be calibrated without the banding artifacts? Has anyone tried calibrating the OLED display?

Hi, I'm using my Yoga 900 on the desktop for longer periods of time. When it awakes from sleep it does not always "remember" that it was last displaying on the external monitor. Sometimes I have no picture at all, sometimes I have the picture on the internal monitor. When I switch to external only with F10, it won't do that, so the external monitor (HP 24es) won't wake up. Up to now my only solution is to plug out and back in the Type C adapter (Apple 3x multi adapter). That's definitely not what I want to do several times a day. Thanks for any hint...!

Got new X1 Yoga 2nd Gen OLED, having problems with the display settings.  The screen colors are incredibly rich and the colors are borderline neon and strain the eyes after more than 15 minutes of use.  I finally found a way to reduce the neon glow by going to the Intel Graphic Settings and adjusting the color gamut option slider from vibrant to one step down toward natural colors.  The problem, is that after a the computer is put to sleep or restarted, it goes back to the neon colors.  Is there a way to get these settings to stay without having to change it every time I open up the computer?  The display is amazing for viewing movies with super vibrant sharp colors, but when it's in vibrant factory settings its very bad.  The colors on webpages and onscreen keep increasing and decreasing in brightness randomly.

Hi, is it worth it to upgrade from Thinkpad X1 Yoga 1st Gen OLED to Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen (2017) OLED? I am very happy with my 1st gen but found an inexpensive 2nd gen OLED on eBay. The CPU is faster (7600u vs. 6700u). Something changed about the mechanics of keyboard retraction. And USB-C. I want OLED so 3rd gen is out of the question. The SSD is smallish (256GB) on the 2nd gen from eBay, so I am planning to replace the ssd with a 970 Pro 1TB. Any problems I could experience with this?

One day I was using the laptop surfing the net normally, everything was fine and suddenly the display gone wrong...(pic below). I tried using an external monitor and still the same, so I am quite sure that my monitor is fine and it's probably a display card problem?
I tried to update my display card driver and no luck, so I decided to use the recovery CD to restore the system, and no luck again.

Here is a screenshot after the system restore...is there a way to repair this without taking it to a service centre??

A:Tecra S1 - Display issue, even on external monitor

Hi borist,

It?s really great that you could post a picture of your problem. Thank you!
Furthermore you tried already a lot of like recovery installation and an external monitor.

Unfortunately it seems to be a hardware malfunction of graphic card. :(

So that means you have to exchange the mainboard because the graphic card is fixed on it. Mainboard is pretty expensive part and Tecra S1 is old notebook so maybe you can get a second hand mainboard or notebook on eBay and exchange it yourself.

Good luck! :)

When I boot up without a connection to an external monitor I experience some display issues with text sizing of certain objects within certain applications (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio).  In these applications parts of the User Interface display perfectly.   Other parts of the same application will have vastly oversized objects and text.  And, in another application the text is greatly undersized in certain portions of this app. When I boot up while connected to an external monitor everything displays perfectly on the external monitor.   This happens without making any changes whatsoever to system display setting or application configuration settings.  If I disconnect the external monitor the X1's internal monitor still displays everything perfectly.   But if restart while disconnected from an external monitor I experience the same display issues as described in the 1st paragraph. I don't think this problem was always there, but  I cannot say for sure.  It just got so annoying that I finally decided to write to the forum today.   I would guess that the problem has been this way for 1-2 months. The Lenovo System Update app tells me that everything is up to date.    Is there some setting or perhaps driver that needs to change? Tim

I'm trying to determine if it is a normal behavior for the OLED panel to flash a greyscreen with some colored pixels during power on before Alienware logo and then again before Windows login.  In a bright room or sunlit area this is not noticeable at all- however, in a room with a soft lamp it becomes visible.  While viewing from a darkened room the behavior is very obvious.  It's very reminiscent of turning on my old CRT in the 80's and switching over to the Atari.  
    The "flash" does not persist- it is just a quick half flicker at the two points during boot.  Otherwise everything appears normal and the display shows zero problems during use.

The OLED display has developed various artifacts that occur with brightness above about 40; below that brightness, the display is perfect. The screen flickers; at higher brightness, gray and colored bands start to appear in the top half of the screen, with some jittery artifacts near the top. What is interesting is that this problem started suddenly, on the same day as an automatic Windows 10 update. The update was KB4100347: Intel microcode updates (for the Spectre vulnerability). This update is for CPU microcode, not display microcode, but the coincidence is hard to ignore. Windows Update and Lenovo Vantage report that everything on my computer is up to date. I have manually updated the drivers for Intel HD Graphics 520, OLED Display 2560x1440, and Intel OLED Panel Driver; this has not improved the behavior. Also, I tried turning off Panel Self-Refresh, which didn't help either (but that was for a rather different problem). This really seems like a software problem, so I am looking for other things to try before requesting Lenovo service. (The computer is two years old and out of warranty.)

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 bought a 720 (-15IKB) a couple of months and have been very pleased with it.  I'd like to be able to use an external monitor.  I really don't want or need a docking station, not playing video games, I just need a little extra screen real estate to have, say, one document open while I work on another. I happen to have an old Dell VGA monitor sitting around so I picked up USB-C to VGA cable but nothing on the monitor's screen and the computer doesn't seem to recognize a monitor is connected.  Can anyone please give me some suggestions on how to make this work. Thanks!
