T480S Three External Screens

Q: T480S Three External Screens

I'm trying to setup three external screens configuration and stumbled upon the following. I have 3 screens: 1. 4k (3840x2160) 60Hz2. 2560x1600 60Hz3. 1920x1200 60Hz I was hoping to use all possible outputs on the laptop (2 USB-C and HDMI), but apparently you can't do that - you can pick only two out of those three. I also tried using USB-C docking station, and again - it limits resolution to 1200p, which is not enough (4K display via USB-C, docking station via second USB-C and two screens 1200p and 1600p via docking station, the latter gets resolution only up to 1200p). So, I found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Thunderbolt-DisplayPort-Compatible/dp/B01DYFI1OE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=....It's a Thunderbolt 3 splitter to two Display Port outputs, claiming to support two screens 4K at 60Hz. And it looks like laptop has Thunderbolt 3 ouput. So, will it support all my screens with full resolutions using that splitter? Again, I envision configuration to be:1. 4K display via 1st USB-C (this will be a miniDP adapter with power)2. Splitter via second (Thunderbolt 3), and two other screens (1920x1200 & 2560x1600) connected using that splitter. Will that work? Thanks,Yury

I recently got a Thinklpad P1 from my company for work, together with a Thunderbolt 3 dock. The installed OS is Ubuntu Linux 18.10 (standard flavour, with Gnome). When I set the graphics to "Hybrid" in the Bios, the 2 external displays plugged in the dock are not detected. Network and USB work fine. When I switch to "Discrete", both monitor are detected and work fine. It's annoying, because the laptop heats up more, the fan runs almost all the time and if I use the laptop unplugged the battery is drained much faster, unless I switch temporarily back to Hybrid. I'm grateful for any help!

Hello, I have a Lenovo T480S running Linux and am trying to connect two external monitors without the use of a doc station. Since I cannot use both HDMI and USB-C ports at the same time as described in the documentation: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/pubs/t480s/html_en/index_en.html#Using_an_external_display_(topic... I connected as following : The first display is connected via HDMI to the HDMI port and is working without any problems. The second display is connected to the  the USB-C (Thunderbolt 3 compatible) port, using an USB-C to HDMI cable like this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075V5JK36/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  But the second monitor does not work, even with the HDMI port not in use. Any pointers on how to connect two displays at the same time to the T480S without a doc ? Is that even supported ? Thanks and best regards,MMV.

Hi all!! I'm trying to determine if I can utilize 3 external monitors in addition to the laptop screen. I have a T480s with a thinkpad USB - C Dock and my current setup is: - DP to DVI adapter from docking station (for one external monitor)- VGA from docking station (for one external monitor)- Built in laptop screen This works perfect but I'm trying to get a 3rd monitor to work as well. I have a HDMI to VGA adapter that I have tried from the laptop to the 3rd external monitor. It doesn't work. If I unhook the VGA from the dock (one of other monitors), the 3rd monitor will work as expected. It seems trying a 2nd VGA is causing the issue. The 3 monitors I have only have VGA and DVI. I'm thinking about buying either a USB C to DVI/VGA adapter OR a HDMI to DVI adapter but before I do that, I wanted to see if anyone knows if this will work. Sorry for the long message and thanks in advance to anyone that can help! Thanks,

Hi, I have a T480s laptop with a Dell D6000 USB C Dock connected via USB C. I am trying to connect 3 external monitors through the dock. 2 on DisplayPort, 1 on HDMI. I have checked other posts on this forum but they don't deal with the problem or are incorrect I have updated all drivers on laptop for display and I've updated drivers and firmware on dock to latest. The dock will display 2 of the external monitors in any combination of DisplayPort or HDMI with the laptop screen working as a 3rd screen. I can get all 4 monitors working with the DisplayPort monitors on the dock and the HDMI plugged directly in to the laptop. However I can only intermittently get 3 monitors working through the dock. Usually when I've unplugged all usb ports and restarted the dock. However the second I remove and replace the usb plug from the laptop the HDMI monitor stops working. This is not reliable though and sometimes it just will not work for no obvious reason. It seems to me that USB C Alt Mode is only intermittently working on the laptop and it seems to stop as soon as I unplug and replug the dock. Can anyone help me get 3 monitors working reliably through the dock?

They would like to have 2 external monitors in addition to the laptop screen and use all 3 as extended desktops. When I try and set that up, one of the external monitors mirrors the built in screen. I cannot seem to get all three to work independantly. The graphics display properties won't let me say all three should be extentions. What am I doing wrong?

Hello, So - the problem appears when you are trying to use external screen which one is connected to the docking station (there is only two DisPlay ports and no others dedicated to monitors).When you connect it first time - it's ok. But when you trying to un-dock and dock again - external screen says "no input" and goes down. In other words - external screen is not working. The same issue is described over there:https://support.lenovo.com/lt/en/solutions/ht081248 Mine docking station type is 40AH, but anyway, I tried to run ThinkPad Ultra Dock 135W firmware update - but update says "the firmware you are trying to install is older than the version already installed. My Docking Station: Power adapter is 135W. All drivers are up to date. Btw - I have many of those docking stations with machines. For some of them everything is fine.But seems the problem is with docking station. I have two docking stations on my desk right now. And my computer on one is working fine, but with other on - not. So, it's clear that the problem is with the docking station.

This is more of an intrigue than an issue but I'm still curious as to why this happens. Issue: When placing a T480s on top of another T480s both machines will be forced into sleep mode.  How to reproduce: Line up a T480s on top of another T480s (or T480) and the device will go into sleep mode. I've Stacked T480 units and this does not happen this seems to only affect the T480s line. (These test were preformed on the latest bios/driver revisions) What I think maybe happening is that the T480s when stacked are triggering the lid closed sensor of the other unit. Since this is not the case for the T480 units we have I think it may be because of the thickness of the s models. Is this something that will eventually be fixed via bios update? or is this just a flaw in the T480s design? Thanks for in advanced for your response!  

A:T480s is forced into sleep mode when in close proximity to T480/T480s

I've seen this happen in the past, it was due to how strong the magnets are that keep the lid shut.

Hello,I have a lenovo P51s think pad and i would like to connect it to two external screens. does its graphic card support it and if it does how do you guys suggest i connect two external screens to it?

A:Connecting External screens

Hi sravya_K,
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
By looking at the ThinkPad P51s Platform Specifications it supports three independent displays with the help of HDMI or USB Type-C ports.
In addition to above, you can also use following docks for hassle free connection to your external monitors:

Mechanical Docks
USB Docks / Cable Docks
Thunderbolt Dock

I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hi There I recently purchased a Pro X 2 tablet with the assocaited docking station, I have two external HD screens that I want to run as my main dosplay when I am in the office with the tablet closed. I am using HDMI cables connected through the 2 DIsplayport connections on the back of the docking station.My problem is that I cannot find an option that will allow me to use the two screens seperatly once the tablet is closed on to its keyboard. Screen two closes down. The only option I can successfully do is the two screens replicated, which defeats the purpose of the two screens. The screens are Philips 244E. Any help that you can provide will be much apprecaited, as I'm going around in circles currently!

Dear all

I am running Bloomberg and need the picture to extend on to two 24" full HD LCD screens. Including the integrated screen of my current laptop, I use three panels at once. Can I do that with the Z30 1 CZ? Will I have to buy a docking station for that?

At the moment I am using an ultrabook from a different manufacturer but I am not satisfied for reasons that have nothing to do with the display. Currently I use a docking station where one screen connects by DVI and the other by VGA cable.

With the Z30, can I just use the VGA and the HDMI ports of the laptop to get the same solution?
Best wishes,
Peter

A:Portege Z30 - need to extend display to two external screens

From my knowledge the display out ?feature? depends on the graphic card/chip.

Usually you can use either the VGA or HDMI output.
VGA (RGB) port provides analogue signal, HDMI provides digital signal and as far as I know you cannot use both at the same time?

However, you could purchase an "usb hdmi adapter? adapter which would allow you to use two external monitors simultaneously.

Unfortunately it isn't really about the chipset.

Hi all, We just bought 5x Zbook 15 laptops as replacement for our Dell line, they have the latest drivers and bios from the HP site. We have/had 2 issue when the laptop is sitting in the dock ( 230w dock ) The first one : When the laptop (W7/8/8.1 or Ubuntu) is started in the dock so with the screen closed the external screens work perfect from starting the laptop till shutting down. The only that does not work is the laptop screen when opening or when getting the laptop off the dock, only thing that worked was restarting with the laptop screen opened. Solution HP helpdesk : Turn off the Hybrid Graphics Enhanced Display Feature in the bios. So I thought ok solved.... NOT Second issue : Now when booting in dock with laptop screen closed the external screens only turn on if Windows/Ubuntu is started, this will be ok for a lot of consumers but not for companies as they are using bios passwords when now is not visable so they need to guess when typing the password.  Case : 4734559318 / 4733480978 HP enigeer came onsite and came to the same conclusion I already made... It's a bios --> hardware controlling issue. Hopefully will this supposedly bios issue (control bios -> hardware) be resolved otherwise we will probably go back to Dell!

A:Zbook 15 Docking/external screens issue

If you have the latest BIOS and BOTH Intel and NVIDIA graphics drivers installed, please, call HP support back and ask for an escalation. Intel graphics is used most of the time (unless applications use OpenGL or other 3D graphics) and there may be an issue with resume from suspend with that driver

Hello Friends,
I have a problem because of a problem. I got bit by the endless loop boot up because of the last MS update.

I am now waiting for MS to send me an XP CD, ya 6-7 days w/o my machine!

Now the problem: I decided it would be a good idea to hook up my laptop to my cordless KB and Mouse, went without a hitch. The problem came when I decided to hook my 23" monitor to the laptop also.

Yes, now I have no monitor working. I get black screens on both machines, I do get a pointer but it is useless. The monitor is an acer and the LT is a HP DV9205. I have tried the fn+F4 along all the F combinations.

Now a bit more information: I am able to ctrl alt del and pull up the processes running, it shows no apps running. I am also able to open in safe mode and can see both screen in safe mode.

If I uninstall the Nivdia driver for the acer and reboot without the monitor hooked up the LT I still have only the black screen on the LP.

Help please. I am now working from a netbook, and it is killing me

I have a friend who says her external monitors (she has 2 connected to her dock) have been randomly flickering/going black momentarily (and always simultaneous/syncronized with each other) for the past 3 weeks or so. The other day her internal screen went black for about 15 minutes, and by restarting several times, she said it eventually came back.She said the battery was low when her internal screen went down, but I don't think that would be a cause (as it happens when she is docked and charging)I checked the graphics drivers, everything was up to date, but the "Monitor" driver needed an update. Again I don't think that would solve the issue as it is also doing this on her dock.Any thought on what could cause this?

hi i've had a slew of problems with my new computer

-i get blue screened and it says a warning message that isn't the same from the previous windows, you know hwo it normally said your system has become unstable and what not. this message says that there was an error and windows is shutting itself down to prevent further damage

-i get black screened(iduno if thats the term) but what happens is i'll be working on some files and then out of nowhere my monitor goes black, the computer and monitor stay on, but the monitor goes into some sort of standby mode thing where the power light flashes

-i also ocassionally have trouble rebooting one of my other computers and whenever it gives me a problem the screen goes black and there's a green line that goes across the top of the monitor

iv'e tried spy ware removing programs/anti viruses/fire walls none of them seem to be working

any help would be greatly apprecieated
 

A:Solved: blue screens black screens green screens

The issues sound a bit like a hardware failure, the blue STOP screen could be hardware or software.

The Black screen sounds like the PC has died, but the power supply continues to run. This could well be hardware.

Both issues could be something like overheating of the CPU (are all fans running, is the CPU fan dust clogged - shouldnt be if it's "new")?

If it's "new" and under warranty, take it back.

It would have helped to know if it was a desktop or laptop though.

I have a ultrabook U310 touch from Lenovo, s/n QB06816995, and I am in a terrible problem! The screen of this ultrabook is broken and I'm using an external VGA monitor at this moment. I have connected the external VGA monitor in the HDMI port of the ultrabook using a HDMI/VGA cable. Using an external monitor I'm not able to see the BIOS or boot screens when I turn on the ultrabook. The first screen that I have seen is the Windows logon (maybe because in that moment, the operating system has sent a signal to an external monitor and in the boot this situation doesn't happen). The problem is: I want and I have to install a new operating system in this ultrabook once I can't enter into the original SO anymore, and for doing that, I have to access the BIOS and change the priority of booting in order to use a windows bootable pendrive or DVD. I have already tried to do the following steps: 1) to use the keys to change from the main screen to an external monitor; 2) disconnect the battery for 15 seconds and drain the energy in order to do the first step again; 3) remove the HDD and connect it in another computer to format it using a wintohdd software and assemble it again in the ultrabook; 4) to do the third step without using the wintohdd software; 5) look at the youtube and try to find some videos where I could watch someone doing something i...

I have a two year old Sony Vaio 64 bit with Windows 7 Home Premium, Service pack 1. I had no problem with it until I put on Norton 360 when blue screens started generating.

I got onto Norton Community as advised and uploaded the contents of the BSOD screen which only occurred when I started the computer. They gave me a link to a Microsoft Knowledge base article at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979444 which in turn led me to the following hotfix :- http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%207/WindowsServer%202008%20R2/sp1/Fix302249/7600/free/404162_intl_x64_zip.exe

A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

I have a dell Inspiron 13 7349 laptop running stock windows 8.  I recently updated the display driver to the latest version from the dell support site (based on my service tag).  The driver is Intel(R) HD Graphics family 10.18.14.4414 (dated 2016-03-23).  Since then, each time I try to connect the laptop to an external monitor, or if I try to change the screen resolution, the screen refreshes to a blank page - I can see the mouse pointer, but nothing else.  The solution is to either close the laptop lip and reopen (works 60%) of the time.  The other solution is to restart the laptop (so I lost all the unsaved information).  I have been using/connecting to this same external monitor for at least a year with this laptop on older driver.  Downgrading to the previous driver is not an option because it was causing other more serious problems.  Does anyone know what may be wrong here? It appears to be a driver issue, but I m not sure how to overcome.

OK, I have read you last thread and sounds like you made some progress.

Lets see the details of the Blue Screen, follow this guide to attach it to your next post.


First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).
NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.

• Below the Message Box click on Go Advanced. Then scroll down until you see a button, Manage Attachments. Click on that and a new window opens.
• Click on the Browse button, find the zip folder you made earlier and doubleclick on it.
• Now click on the Upload button. When done, click on the Close this window button at the bottom of the page.
• Enter your message-text in the message box, then click on Submit Message/Reply.Click to... Read more

Lenovo Facebook support sent me here to post the issue as they expect it to be a Firmware/Driver problem: There is a serious compatibility issue between the T480s and the iPhone8 - tested on various units of both devices, with various cables. All BIOS/FW/SW/Drivers on both devices were updated, issues remain before and after Updates: It is not possible to connect iPhone8 via USB to T480s - or only after several attempts or a reboot. On the right USB port connection goes on and off in seconds, on the left port charging connection remains stable, but no data connection is posible. We tested this with 4 different T480s, 6 different iPhone8 models and various different cables - therefore it is definitely a FW/Driver Issue on the Lenovo side - as the phones work with any other Notebook. If the phone however is attached to the right port while the Notebook is booting, iPhone8 asks for authorization (while T480s boots) and then everything works fine. Lenovo Facebook support says this clearly points out to a driver/firmware issue. Trying to plug in the USB port not all the way in but leave a 2-3mm space before the USB cable fully contacts the port (as suggested by Lenovo Facebook support) does not help. Sooo there we are - we tested and replicated this issue with several brand new T480s-machines (core i5-8350U) and a number of different iPhone8 with different cables. What solution does the Lenovo engineers propose? BestCarLazar

I had a better card in the PC and was running the AMD catalyst drivers.
I took that card out and put in the x1300.

Several times noticed some weird effects.
Then today I powered down cause it was pink, and it refused to turn on the screen.
So I let it sit and it is working again.

I did not uninstall catalyst AMD drivers, is that a problem? the x1300 is not a supported video card.

If it is a problem, then are the AMD drivers destroying the card? (terminating the old technology to make you get new technology)

A:Pink screens, white screens, odd colors amd x1300 pro

Hi there .. It is more than likely the Card you Installed is faulty .. When you Installed that Card Windows would try to find a Driver for it .. Its a pretty old Card i know there are some Vista Drivers available for it .. Not sure about 64 Bit Drivers though ..

Hey all

If this is in the wrong place then please move it

Anyway, I've been asked to put up two televisions that will display the same information in the office. At the moment, it's going well. I have a single computer underneath one television that has the information playing on a slideshow and it's connected to a VGA splitter. This splitter then splits the image so that the same information is displaying on the TV on the opposite side of the office (the VGA cable runs up into the ceiling and across).

However, they now want more information being displayed. Specifically, they want a real time web-based interface to be shown and for the screen to flick between the slideshow and the real time interface. The slideshow only shows one image - a graph showing their call times. I was wondering if there's any easy way to do this? All that I can think of is putting the image of the graph on one side of the screen and the web-based interface on the other. I was kind of hoping for it to be in full screen, though so it's easier to see and people don't have to leave their desks in order to see it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

And I'm back again giving you another annoying dilemma to help me with.

Okay, the problems are on my main pc. The specs are below:

Windows 7 Ult. 64bit
Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
4GB DDR3 PNY RAM
500GB Seagate HDD
Dynex 400 Watt Power Supply

*all parts were bought BRAND NEW

These problems ONLY occur when the pc boots up for the first time (after I shut it down at night and start it in the morning).

Every now and then, the pc will boot up to the desktop. Everything looks normal. All the taskbar icons load, internet connection, everything. However, when I begin to use an application, primarily firefox, to browse the web, the pc will begin to stutter. The cursor movements become jagged and in about 5 seconds, the screen goes black. The pc fans are still on, but the hard drive light is off. Once, the screen went to a sky blue color instead of black, but the outcome was the same.

The only way out is to reset the pc. After that, everything runs fine. I can do anything to the pc and it never crashes. This problem only occurs when the pc first initializes.

Another issue is random blue screens. I've encountered about 4-5 in the past two months. When I start my morning, I boot my pc and walk out to get my coffee, leaving it to idle. Sometimes when I come back, a BSOD is waiting for me. Each time it's been the error code 0xF4, which doesn't do me a whole lot of good because that tells me it's a problem with hardware or software drivers. I c... Read more

Check the system Properties \ Startup and Recovery. Is the wright debug info set to Small Memory dump or Kernel Memory dump. You need it set to Small Memory dump to have a minidump log file in C:\Windows\minidump It would be best to have that file to see whats going on.

Where can I get (and how can I install) bootskins and logon screens for Windows 7....

Preferably an official (or official looking) FBI or CIA or NCIS or one of those other cool Agencies......

and just any cool or decent boot screen that isnt officially a boring windows boot screen (Like the glowing balls of color that swirl around and then form the Windows Flag...)

Any help, comments, suggestions, insults, compliments, advice, anything at all, is welcome.

A:Boot screens and logon screens....

What boot screen are you talking about? Where I work we have no "Agency" specific boot screen. It is just the default Windows Logon/Boot Screen. If you one of those ones you see in the movies, then you are out of luck.

Hi, I have trouble getting my T480s to boot from usb drive. I have disabled secure boot, tried with both UEFI only and UEFI + legacy settings. No matter what I did, upon pressing F12, the only option was to boot from built in NVME drive. I looked online for pointers, but I only found posts where people forgot to disable secure boot.The usb drive itself works perfectly on another machine (boots without a hitch).On T480s it is working *once* I am already booted into OS, is not visible from the boot menu. Any advice on what to do next? Cheers

A:Can't boot from USB T480s

Hello and welcome,
 
It might help to know what's on the  USB drive.  How was it prepared?  Legacy or UEFI?  GPT or MBR?  NTFS, FAT32, ext4, ???? Any details could help.
