USB Type-C docking station for Yoga 900

Q: USB Type-C docking station for Yoga 900

Does Lenovo sell a compatible docking station for the USB Type-C port? I am looking for a ethernet port, video port (HDMI & VGA) and multiple USB 3.0 ports on a dock that connects to the new USB Type-C port.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

As far as I know, Lenovo currently doesn't offer a USB Type C docking station for the Yoga 900. As you can't charge the Yoga 900 using the USB Type C port, you have to plug in two cables anyway. You might consider buying this adapter by Dell: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Adapter-Type-Ethernet-470-ABQN/dp/B012DT6KW2 Unfortunately, it only has one USB 3.0 port, but it offers one HDMI, one VGA and one Ethernet port as desired.

Hello,I've been trying to get my T530, and Type 4337 to extend desktop display to 2 external monitors, and the laptop screens. I can get any 2 of them to show the desktop but the 3rd is always dark. Using the Windows Display Configuration tool will not allow me to "Apply" any changes made to the monitors configuration; i.e. extending the 3rd monitor. Any suggestions? Regards!

Is there a compatible (preferably tested) docking station for the Yoga 13?Also, what is the maximum resolution the video card will drive on an external monitor? Will it do WQHD (2560x1440)?Thanks










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Docking station for Yoga 13

no replies...So does that mean there isn't one?that is a bit of a downer.Also, with regards to the max. resolution, surely that is a much more important feature to document on a laptop's specifications page, unlike rubbish like "onekey recovery", or the fact that it comes preloaded with a lot of bloatware like Accuweather.I assume that the lack of a display port will limit the direct connection to HDMI's maximum resolution of 1920x1200.Thus, the question about docking stations (or other USB 3 gadgets) that can support a larger resolution.

I would like to attach 3 external monitors to the Yoga 370. I hope people who have done this can tell me which docks work well. I have a ThinkPad Yoga 370 Model 20JH-CTO1WWi7-7500U, Graphics 620, 16GB RAM, 180 GB OPAL2.0, FHD (1920x1080) IPS multi-touch, etc All 3 monitors are HDMI 1920x180. (Of course, I can use an adapter for one or more to fit the dock's available display connectors.) One dock I'm interested in is:https://plugable.com/products/ud-ultcdlI would like the dock to charge my system while I'm using it on the dock, but that's not strictly a requirement. I could always use a non-charging dock and separately connect the charger.

I currently have a total of three displays I can use. The laptop screen and two Lenovo monitors.  One monitor is hooked up with vga cable and the other with a display port cable. I would like to add an additional monitor, but from what I read the vga on the laptop is disabled while docked, so is this possible,  can I use the mini display port while it?s docked for an additional display?  Or can I use the dvi port and get a dvi to vga adaptor or a dvi to hdmi adaptor on the docking station while it?s docked?

Hi folks!I'm using my t430s in several areas, such as my parents house, or even at home, workplace, coffe shops, etc.... Well, at my parents house, i'm using a type 4336 docking station, with an old sharp FHD external tv hooked to the vga output.. And i used to activate it with fn+f7, when it's needed to show anything, when its necessary.... I have updated the windows lately, but after it the settings gone insane, and when i connect the laptop to the 4336 it sends the screen to the external, and need to change it back to laptop lcd by pressing the mentioned keys before. It is pretty frustrating, and i don't find the setting, which i was able to find before the update. It did the same way after the previoius update too.can somebody please help?I'm soo dissapointed in the new windows stuff by now. I used win 7 x64 for a looooong time, but.... the system came with win8 so its free os for me, and deceided to use it instead of 7. It was a mistake i know... Thank you in advance!carrEdit: I just noticed, if i close the lid, the secondary monitor is becoming the primary, and it turns itself on. How did this gone so bad?! :@

I have recently purchased Lenovo Yoga 530 Notebook. I'm quite happy with it, but it seems I did not pay enough attention to USB-C port specs when choosing a laptop.I tried connecting the 530 to a Lenovo USB-C Docking station (not sure what's the model, but it has 2 DisplayPorts), but only Ethernet was working and nothing else: no monitors, no nothing. It seems that Thunderbolt functionality is necessary for USB-C docking stations to work properly.I was wondering, which docking station would be compatible with Yoga 530? I am unable to even find Yoga 530 in Lenovo's accessory picker-tool.Thank you!

I'm looking at replacing my desktop PC with a laptop & docking station. This is for combined small business and personal use. I thought I needed 16 GB RAM but after some reading, I wonder if it might be overkill. Here is what I often have open all at once: MS Word, MS Outlook, MS Excel, File Explorer, Edge (with up to 20 tabs), Chrome (with possibly another 5-10 tabs). I don't edit videos or photos, use CAD or use the computer for games, so I thought 8 GB might be plenty, but I've been reading that if you like to keep 30 tabs open on a browser, 16 GB is better. I often keep at least 15 open along with several MS Office apps at the same time. I've read that the RAM in the Yoga 920 cannot be upgraded. Should I spend the extra $ for 16 GB from the start? Second question, I want to use a docking station to connect the Yoga to 2 external monitors. One is older and only has a VGA cable. The other has optional VGA or HDMI cable connections. Can someone recommend a docking station that would be suitable? Thanks.

A:Yoga 920 - help choosing RAM, docking station

The RAM on the 920 is soldered in, so it's not something you can upgrade. I've always gone for the most I can get as I expect these things to last a few years and each new update to software seems to require more and more resources from the computer. So, better to have more than you need now than kick yourself later. That's MY credo.

Hello. Purchase a Yoga 710 and have been trying to find a portable docking station for this laptop. Many available in the market but dont want to purchase if it wont work. This particular laptop lacks in ports (I didnt think to look before I bought it) and have been struggling to get even one external monitor connected since most monitors being sold are either standard HDMI, not the mini hdmi port on this laptop. I had to order a HDMI mini cable to finally get an external monitor to work, but now i want to have the ease of use of plugging in my keyboard, mouse, micrphone, headset and x2 monitors so i dont have to mess with all these cables each time i move the laptop from point A to point B. Is there a port on my laptop that will allow me to connect to a portable docking station? As mentioned, many of these are available for sale, just want to make sure I get the right one.

Hi,I procured a Lenovo Yoga 370 about 6 months ago. Aside from some of the lenovo software randomly crashing on me due to whatever bugs exist in the s/w, it's been working pretty well... until recently. About two months ago, I bought a Type 40AC docking station, which comes with a large power adapter. I was able to use both of those successfully for a month+. About three weeks ago, the power started trickle discharging, even while plugged into the docking station. The battery discharges at a rate of about 8% per hour. When the problem started, the laptop would also avoid charging while plugged directly into the wall (no docking station). However, by disconnecting the internal and bios batteries and running the static discharge sequence (which I had learned about because my previous lenovo laptop also had a power issue :/), I was able to at least get the laptop to charge when plugged in directly to the wall. I've called lenovo tech support 3-4 times about this issue. To their credit, as part of the troubleshooting process, they've replaced the motherboard, replaced the battery, replaced the docking station, ushered me to install the latest power management drive (which I did), flash my motherboard bios (which I did but was silly, because it was a "new" motherboard), and flash my docking station (which I did but was silly, because it was a "new" docking station). I also tried another large power adapter that I use on a power-hungry lenovo laptop. However, the laptop i... Read more

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 have the Yoga 260 with a OneLink+ Docking Station for over an year and working well. I have 2 monitors connected. One DP and One VGA port. In the last 2 months, I keep getting this message "Docking Station AC Power Problem   AC power is detached from your docking station, or the AC power adapter type is incorrect. Connect a 90-watt AC power adapter or higher to the docking station for proper battery charging and docking station operation." If I shut down the system and leave it connected to the docking stations, it charges up the battery. Battery starts draining when Windows boots up and this message shows up.  I use a 90-watt AC power adapter that came with the docking station. For over a year had no problem with it.  I tried to use a second 60watt AC power adapter power connected directly to the Yoga 260 without the dock and it charges Ok. If I connect the Dock Connector with the second AC power adapter connect, it continues to charge the battery and even after I remove the second AC adapter, it continues to charge through the dock connector. Kind of like Jump starting the system. !!! Please suggest solutions as this is becoming a big hassle and the idea of getting a docking station is lost.

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.
Problem also reported in launchpad with lot's of debug info, here:

File Transfer - Help Wanted

It will be from the old computer running Windows XP to a new computer running Windows 7.

The old computer has files which I have accumulated over a number of years, it is a mixture of those used rarely, used frequently and junk.

The chances are some of the files will never be used again, but they just might be wanted at some future date. I am therefore reluctant to scrap anything. Neither do I want to put a lot of possibly unnecessary files on the new computer.

I need to be able to search the old hard drive and recover a file if it is wanted.

The old computer is about 9 years old and is slow and may not be worth upgrading.

I now have two computers and one monitor and I am not sure what would be the best route.
