T480, USB-C to Thunderbolt & Mini displayport

Q: T480, USB-C to Thunderbolt & Mini displayport

We recently moved from the Lenovo T470 to the T480. We have purchased two of the T480's, with both we have the same issue;The adapters we have used for the T470, won't work with the T480's. The ports do work with our usb-c displays. Some background information, the monitors we are connecting too are both from Apple, Thunderbolt Display and the Cinema Display. We have no issue with the T470, with the same adapter. The adapter we are using is a Apple Thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2. We have also tried other adapters from some aftermarket sellers. What we have tried already:Several adapters, none work. Both portsWe have tried deactivating the security in the BIOS for the USB-C, just to make sure we tried everything, but also no succes. We have spoken to our Lenovo reseller for over an hour, but no succes or tips.. Checking the thunderbolt software, if it gets recognized or anything but no. If anyone could provide some insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

 Hi. I know there is a discussion here about the x230t supporting 4k, but my model is the x230, and also the said topic ended without a clear answer. Since now 4K TV's and monitors are so common, could someone please confirm that if we connect an x230 to a 4k display, through DisplayPort, we can get 4K resolution out of it (at 30 Hz) ? I want to order an LG 24UD58 online (that is a still at about 200 bucks), for the purpose of reading PDFs and using Office (not gaming), but the only place that says it can be done is this, and I needed confirmation (please). Thank you so much. I think this information could even bring new life to existing x230's and please many owners

I recently bought an HP Envy 32 monitor and hooked it up to my Mac mini using a mini DisplayPort (i.e. Thunderbolt) to DisplayPort cable. The video works fine @ 2560x1440, but I have no sound. The sound output in system preferences mentions "The selected device has no output controls" for the Envy 32. The sound works fine when I use an HDMI cable, but then the resolution is limited to 1080p. The Mac mini is a mid 2011 model, which is capable of transferring audio via DisplayPort, as far aas I know. Any suggestion on how to solve this?

Are there any adapters to do this or ways to do this? I can't seem to find any.

I am buying new monitors, the dell u2414h. Now, while this does have hdmi, I will be connecting multiple monitors together to extend the display from the laptop to give me multiple screens. The problem with this is that it only works if you use displayport and not hdmi, so I need a way to convert the hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

I will primarily be using these monitors with my laptop that has displayport, so that is why I am getting these monitors and that won't be a problem. I will most likely hook up other laptops to the monitors and hdmi is way more common from what I have seen on laptops than displayport and is why I need a way to go from hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

Any ideas? Thanks.
 

A:Hdmi to Displayport/Mini Displayport

You can't, HDMI does not support daisy chaining in the manner that DisplayPort does and you can't use a simply adapter to go from HDMI to DisplayPort and get the features of DisplayPort.

My t480 no longer charges via thunderbolt dock. Sometimes it wontw boot if anything is plugged into the thinderbolt port either (black screen after Lenovo uefi splash screen) When plugging my power adapter into the port, it will enter pluged in modern but report not charging. It will maintain charge. When plugging a docking station, attached perepherper function normally, but again, not charging. This behavior started recently.  Additionally I noticed that in device manager the UCSI USB connector manager sometimes will error out with an error 43. But this is sporadic and may be unrelated. Device manger view appears to repeatedly refresh, but have not been able to discover the conflict. I refreshed the os (win10) and it worked correctly for a bit, but then started doing the same thing again. Is this an error induced by a recent Lenovo or Microsoft update? Hardware problem?  Software?

I have a user with two LT3053s (2560 x 1600) and his previous T440 + Ultra Dock (I believe) supported the full resolution at 60 Hz (again I believe).  I upgraded him to a T480 and our standard Type-c dock that we deploy limited the screens to 1920x1080 @ 60Hz.  After this and complaints from the user of headaches from the drop in resolution we purchased a TB3 Gen 2 Dock and even after plugging the dock in to the actual TB3 port on the laptop (not the top type-c port) we are having issues with not all of his devices working, namely the kb+m. Any ideas here?  Right now we are running it with the 135W power adapter that it came with, but there is also another power adapter available that did not come with the unit we purchased.

I have two 27" 2560x1440 60hz monitors that are plugged into the new Pro side-connect dock (40AH) with a new T480 (Intel 620 integrated graphics) in Windows 10 Pro. I can get either monitor to work fine with the dock individually, but trying to run both simultaneously by extending or duplicating the desktop between them seems to fail as selecting either option under Display Settings just makes the primary monitor black out for a few seconds then come back - the secondary monitor stays black.  There's no error msg or popup that would help me investigate further unfortunately. I'm trying this with the T480's lid closed, and I'm running the latest 1.14 BIOS update and latest Intel HD graphics drivers. This setup worked fine on my old OneLink dock and X1 Carbon previously, so I don't think it's an issue with the monitors themselves. Anyone have a similar setup with the new Pro dock that's working?

The Precision 7720 with P5000 video card is specced at DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 1.4 and Thunderbolt 3. I know that you can get adapters to go from DP to HDMI or Thunderbolt to DP and HDMI though. If I have an application that requires HDMI 2.0 for example, can you get it from the Thunderbolt 3 port or the DisplayPort or is there an underlying limit to HDMI 1.4 in the processor itself? I'm having a hard time understanding the various capabilities.

I have a new T480 and Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 dock. I find that often when I close--but in no way shut down--the computer for the night, when I restart in the morning, it completely restarts, so I lose open tabs, unsaved work, etc. I can understand enough of the system event log to determine that the computer always goes to sleep when I close it, then, per the power plan, hibernates three hours later--or at least tries to. The first sign of trouble in the logs comes at the time of hibernation. For example, at 2:37:25 this morning there is the routine Information event, "The system is entering sleep. Sleep Reason: Hibernate from Sleep - Fixed Timeout." This is followed immediately by the warning, "6105 - deauth after EAPOL key exchange sequence". Over the next 5 minutes come two more warnings and eight errors. Then nothing until I start the machine in the morning. One of the first events on restart is the information message, "The last shutdown's success status was false. The last boot's success status was true." It appears to me that this only happens if the computer is plugged into the Thunderbolt 3 dock overnight. To the dock are connected a (gigabit) ethernet cable, a displayport monitor, a mouse, a keyboard, and a pair of headphones. Here is a fuller dump of the error log at the last time it was hibernating, or trying to: Level Date and Time Source Event ID Task CategoryError 7/30/2018 2:41:33 AM Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM 10010 None The server {3EB...

Hi, I have a T470 laptop with the USB-C charger. I'd like to connect a DisplayPort LCD screen to use as a second display while simultaneously being connected to A/C power and charging my batteries. I am having a bit of trouble figuring out what my options are. 1. I could buy a Thunderbolt 3 hub/dock with a DisplayPort connector on it. I would then connect the charger to one of the USB-C ports on the hub/dock, and the screen to the DP connector. From what I can see, these hubs are fairly expensive, so given that I currently don't need to connect any other TB3 devices I'd like to avoid it if possible.2. I could buy a USB-C - DP adapter or cable, but I have not seen anything with some kind of pass-through function which would allow me to connect my charger. I thought daisy chaining was something TB3 can do, but unfortunately the charger does not have the ability to do this (I know a DP connection has to be at the end of the chain).3. The T470 has a slim tip charge port, in addition to the ability to be charged via the TB3 port. Perhaps a USB-C - slim tip adapter exists which would allow me to connect my charger to the slim tip port, and not worry about the lack of daisy chaining in point 2. I've found a different adapter (wrong interface and wrong direction), but nothing that can do this. Thanks for any info/advice!

Hi, Last week I got an L570 as my first Thinkpad, and directly tried to connect it to my main screen, a 4K display. Unfortunately, I only get FullHD resolution, not 3840x2160.The display is attached to the mini Displayport using an adapter to HDMI. I have tried 4 different adapters now, and all of them only provide FullHD. The Intel Graphics Settings tool detects the external display and also detects that higher resolutions such as 4K are supported. However, I cannot select any resolution higher than FullHD from the options. When creating a custom resolution, I always get the error  "The custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". This is not only the case for 4K resolution but any other one as well. I hav used a Surface Pro 3 before, and connected the display with the same adapters without any issues. The Surface has an 4th gen i3, and now the Thinkpad's i5-7200 does not manage to output 4K. However, the Intel 620 graphics should actually be capable of 4K, Displayport is anyways, and the various adapters also work fine with the Surface. http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20L570/ThinkPad_L570_Platform_Specificatio...  claims "Max resolution: [email protected] (DP via mDP cable);".

A:Mini Displayport to VGA problem

VGA is analog only and I'm not sure if DisplayPort can do analog and digital, but it's primarily intended for digital. DVI and HDMI (which is just DVI plus audio on a different connector head) can do both analog and digital. So assuming that DP can do analog, you'd probably need to find a way to make the GPU specifically output an analog signal. You'd probably be better off either A) getting a new monitor that can handle DisplayPort or at least DVI/HDMI and using that or B) checking a place like Amazon for an active signal converter, which is what the laptop is doing now. You can't passively convert a digital signal to analog, you need a powered device. Plenty of people will be quite happy to sell you an adapter that just connects the different pins, but it won't do you any good because you're just sending a digital signal over a cable where the device on the other end is going to be expecting analog.

I got frustrated looking for solutions, so I tried an HDMI cable, and the laptop instantly found the monitor and I could use it. I would not like to use an HDMI cable though, as all the HDMI ports on this particular monitor are already occupied, and the HDMI standard does not support 2560x1440 resolution at 144 Hz. Is it possible that the mini displayport to displayport adapter is broken?

Hi

As the title indicates i'm on the lookout for a new mini displayport equipped graphics card to fit in my Win 7 desktop pc to connect to a 24" LED Apple Cinema display (on order) which obviously uses a mini displayport connector. I won't be gaming, just 2D CAD work and would prefer a low power, quiet GPU. After a lot of research decided on the single slot 1GB XFX ATI HD 5770 GDDR5 card but just read a review on newegg which mentioned that this card causes the 24" Apple Cinema Display to flicker in Windows 7...so now a bit hesitant Also came across the 512mb AMD FirePro 2460 but this is about $300!!! Any other recommendations?

A:Looking for a basic GPU equipped with mini displayport

Stick with the 5770 or go to the 5870. The screen flicker you refer to has to do with the refresh rate not set correctly. When you have all you parts up and running try the different refresh rates...that should fix it.

Hi.
 
I'm not sure about this since I don't have any of those device, but your question seems to be very interesting.
 
According to the cable you are listing it says "USB 3.1 Type-C to Mini DisplayPort" which may mean that from a computer with USB-C port you can connect a monitor with mini display port plug, but I'm not sure if it will work the other way.
 
Maybe someone with more experience with USB-C can reply this.

For that purpose, I have found this cable: cablemax.com/product/cm-u31cmmdp-1m# . If you have another cable to suggest, please let me know.Thank you in advance

I have recently updated my Dell XPS 13inch but for some reason the displayport stopped working when I plug it in it doesn't recognize that it is connected to an external device and the TV says there is no signal. It was working fine with the same cable and everything until today. I have tried making sure I have the latest drivers but no luck so far. Please help.

I have a ThinkPad x260 laptop. I ordered the following two cables to connect to my monitors, but they don't fit: 1. Select Series Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to DisplayPort 1.2 Cable, 3ft. Product # 13372https://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=13372 Monoprice said this cable would work with the x260. 2. Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to DVI Active Adapter Cable, Mini DP to DVI (M/M), 1920 x 1080/1080p, 3 ft. Model Number: P586-003-DVI-V2http://www.provantage.com/tripp-lite-p586-003-dvi-v2~7TRPA2L1.htm The Mini DisplayPort connectors are 20-pin, but neither connector will fit on the port of the X260. It seems the right size, but it will not push on. Is the Mini DisplayPort connector on the x260 proprietary? Is it male or female? I would have ordered the cable from Lenovo, but my boss wants a 3-foot black cable, nothing else.

I have a Dell XPS 13 (9343) laptop which I am trying to connect to an external monitor. I bought a cable to connect from the laptop's mini displayport to the monitor's DVI port (this cable) but the monitor isn't picking anything up. I can connect a Macbook to the monitor using the same cable without issues, so I don't think the cable is faulty.
Do I need one of Dell's adapters to connect, or is there a driver out there I need to download? Is it possible the mini displayport is broken? I haven't used this port for anything else before and the laptop is fairly new so I'm feeling a bit clueless. I've searched for a solution but can't find anyone else with the same problem.

Hello. I recently bought a StarTech MDP2VGA Mini Display Port to VGA Video Adapter Converter for my laptop, as I had a perfectly good monitor sitting in my closet that I had the idea to use as a second (extended desktop) monitor, but no VGA port built into the laptop.

Everything seems to be working great with good quality results, except for one thing, which is Sleep Mode. 9 Times out of 10 whenever the laptop goes to sleep, be it by a set time of inactivity, closing the cover, or manually telling the machine to go to sleep, when I wake it up, I get the ?blue screen of death? on my primary (laptop) display, which most of the time displays a heading of ?BAD_POOL_HEADER?, with the only way out to force the computer to shut down.

My specs are:

Computer:

? Dell XPS L702X
? Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) SP 1

Display Adaptors:
? Intel (R) HD Graphics Family
o Driver Version: 8.15.10.2321
? NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M
o Driver Version: 8.17.12.8562

MiniDisplay to VGA Adaptor:
? StarTech.com MDP2VGA Mini DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Second Monitor:
? Dell 1907FP

The steps I have taken so far have been checking to make sure all the video drivers are up-to-date and updating where needed, uninstalling software I installed in the last few days to try to see if I was blaming the issue on the wrong thing, likewise, I did a System Restore to about 3 days back. I also installed a driver for the monitor, which all it seemed to do was to have its name display in the Device ... Read more

Hey,  I am glad that you were able to talk to someone. Yes, some of them do not transmit video and audio, but rather just video. The HP Introduces Its Most Premium and Versatile PC press release states it does come with version 1.2.  I hope that helps!

I'm suffering from a creepy issue that my P50(E3-1505M, 16G non-ECC, M2000M) stutters while connecting with my external monitor (Dell [email protected]*1200) via the onboard mini displayport.It seems no problem while I connecting them via the onboard HDMI port, but if I connect them via the mini displayport (wether a miniDP-DP cable or a miniDP-DVI cable), the PC stutters while running 3D programs (like some 3D games), and, meanwhile, the CPU usage gets EXTREMLY high. I just want to know what's the issue probably be in this case? The Graphic card seems normal, and the mini displayport works, but how can a mini displayport connection makes the CPU usage high? Thank you!
