T480 USB C Display

Q: T480 USB C Display

We have an associate who uses a T480, he has dual screens and we have an HDMI and USB C to Hdmi for his displays. Most of the time they are running fine, sometimes though the USB C one goes black, and he has to unplug and replug it back in. Then it wakes up, we have replaced his USB C adapter and cable to the monitor and it hasn't helped. Is there possibly some settings that turns off the USB C port after a time period? It's hard to pin point because it happens throughout the day. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

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.)

I just got a new T480, it is doing great, I only had one question: When connecting a second display either by USB-C or HDMI, the display settings panel does not show the two distinct display squares that I am used to working with, it shows only one combined display: Display seting graphicThis does not allow me to set the two displays with thier different optimal resolutions.  This laptop is Win 10 Home 64 with the Integrated Intel® UHD Graphics 620 graphics.  Is it possible to have two resolutions or must they be the same (lower of the two)? thanks very much for any ideas,Fred

Hi,today my new T480 arrived. And as I started it and set up the brightness to maximum I was a little bit disappointened. It is too dark? My model is the 20L5000GE with WQHD display. (300 ntis??)  I don't know if this is normal or what can I do? Do I have to use the drivers from the lenovo Hompage (I alrady did updated with windows 10 normal update) Should I return it? I really love this laptop. It is so sad that such a perfect laptop or Lenovo in general does not have good display with high brightness?

A:Thinkpad T480 display too dark?

"Too dark" is subjective.  I cannot comment without seeing the screen.  When I have an issue like yours, I prefer to physically take the machine a warranty servicer or dealer.  I can then turn the machine on and we can discuss it while we are both present.  If you return it, you don't have a good way to know if your screen is normal or defective.

After several months of working perfectly, I've run into issues with my dock. Now, after I undock my T480, the screen does not turn-on. It remains off even if I restart the computer. As a work-around I open the laptop so the screen turns-on before un-docking. Has anyone run into this before? I tried updating firmware and searching the forum, but no luck.

When I plug in the external monitor using a (USB-C to DVI cable), Windows 10 displays an error message like: "USB not recognized. The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it". According to T480 user guide those ports should work with an external monitor, so is this a hardware issue? All drivers are up to date.

Sometimes, when the screen of my 2 month old T480 turns off to save battery, it freezes in that state! Note that I'm NOT talking about sleep mode, I'm talking about the "Turn off the dislay" in Windows Power Options. So far I've never had any issue with Sleep mode or Hibernation. I would say this happens roughly about 1 times out of 10, frequently enough to make the laptop utterly unreliable for any serious work. Neither keyboard/touchpad/trackpoint will get the screen back. The laptop is on though, I can hear the fan and switch the FnLock-led On/Off by pressing Fn+Esc. To get the laptop to function again the only option I have is to do a hard shutdown by holding the power button for a few seconds...I have lost many many hours of unsaved work.   I have tried to activate the power button to enter sleep mode in the Windows Power Options "Choose what the power button do", so that I would be able to go from freeze state to sleep state, but without luck. The power button only answers to complete shutdowns. I have all the lastest updates both from Windows 10 and Lenove Vantage.  To set the "Turn off the dislay" to "Never" is obviously not an option, when the laptop is idling the screen is the most power hungry device, and replacing screen sleep with a full sleep would be very slow and tedious for my workflow (reading from book, coding some, reading from book, coding some...). I have spent hours searching for a solution and read...

T440-T480 Connected to Aten KVM deck won't show pre-OS Boot display when connected to HDMI/Mini-DP unless I change the bios setting in display to boot to anything other than "Lenovo Thinkpad LCD".  Changing this bios setting on every machine that gets built out at this company isn't necessarily an option, or at least not the first one we want to take (for multiple reason I'll spare you from here).   So, is there any other way to get them to display this way that doesn't require a bios change? Much the same way that they would display the boot screen when docked and started up, they should do the same thing when connected to HDMI/Mini-DP and started up.

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.

Regards,
Rohit Kumar

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've noticed my fan always stays on regading the temps when my machine is plugged on the 65W charger, temperatures remain between 38 and 57 on light use, but even when idling the fan kicks on as soon as I plug in my charger and turns off a couple seconds after I plug it off. I have tried to fix it by installing the patch mentioned on https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/es/en/solutions/ht506625 and changin the BIOS profile for the plugged status (it's on the same profile now both for AC plugged and unplugged) but the problem perists. Anyone knows how to fix this issue without the need to install 3rd party software or can point me to the windows 10 settings that regukate this behaviour? Thanks in advance.

Hello all, Just received my sixth thinkpad in the last 23 years. It arrived yesterday.  It is a: T480, I7-8550U, 16GB(8+8), 512 M.2 SSD, iGPU, Win10 Pro The fan is really annoying.  It goes on and off constantly.  It seems to ramp up to full speed.  I have been reading about fan noise with this model all over the internet.  Is there a way for it to run constantly at a lower speed than the constant on and off?  My previous model was a T430 never had issues with fan noise (it was very quiet too when it ran). Currently running a test:  Not using the laptop at all.  Opened 1 tab on Chrome and have it sitting on cnn.com.  Also, opened one tab on Edge also on cnn.com.  Task manager open.  Chrome uses less CPU but more memory than Edge.  CPU is running between 15% and 20%.  Fan turns on every minute or so for about 20 to 30 seconds then goes off. It is loud and annoying going on and off.  Why can't it just be a constant lower speed?  On and off is ridiculous.  If this keeps up this machine is going back. Thanks for any replies and suggestions.

Hi everyone, today I upgraded the RAM and the SSD of my T480. I am absolutely not doing this for the first time and I was really careful. I removed the external battery and deactivated the internal battery before starting with the procedure. I used only ESD-safe tools and an ESD-wristband to make sure that the device doens't get damaged by static discharge.After installing the components, my device would no longer turn on. When I connect the charger, the power led flashes 3x but when I press the powervbutton nothing happens. No fan spin, no lights turning on, absolutly nothing.I then tried removing the RAM and the SSD and turning on the machine. But that didn't work as well.After that I tried removing all the power sources (internal and external battery, CMOS-battery), pressing the power button for 60 seconds and leaving the device for 1 hour before reconnecting everything. But it still can't turn it on. Do you guys have any idea what I could try to make my device work again? Thanks in advance. --resonance

I ordered a T480 with the Geforce MX150 option. Was surprised to see my delivered unit with Intel UHD 620 and simultaneously active with the Geforce GPU. The Intel GPU however is the default display adapter. Intel UHD 620 is active display adapterI've never quite seen this before. Desktop mainboard BIOS would typically disable the onboard GPU if slotted with an actual video card (leaving the OS blind to its presence), and all my previous laptops that I configured with a discrete GPU would have just that alone. Am I supposed to disable the UHD 620 in Device Manager in order to force the Geforce to take over? I don't see anything in the BIOS that can influence this (in fact it seems to suggest the UHD is in charge with its shared memory setting).

Hi,Recently bought a T480 with the 150MX Nvidia card. The laptop works great during normal operation during work etc but when I get home and want to play some games, nothing is working as it should. What happens is this:When I start the game everything is running good but after a few minutes I can see my CPU start to lower it's power limit (PL1) slowly towards 5W. It will stop at 5W never gaining any wattage back until i restart computer. The PL1 is at 15W when computer is newly booted. I have tried to uninstall the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework, this results in that the processor is fixed at 15W but after a while the iGPU will go crazy and goes to 100% leaving the CPU at 2W = 0.2Ghz. And I have to restart. So this is not a valid solution. All my power settings are on maximum performance ofc.I have tried almost everything I can think of and been browsing all kind of reddit threads without any long term solution.

It's used to develop control software for "soft PLC"s, i.e. in practice another computer. But in order to run simulations locally on the laptop, the TwinCAT3 runtime needs to be running locally which involves drivers in Window kernel ring 0. The TwinCAT3 runtime adds some real-time capabilitites to the system and it does not like hyperthreading.  This need is not something that I can change, it's part of the TwinCAT3 runtime.
