T570 and ThinkVision X24 pro with USB-C will not connect

Q: T570 and ThinkVision X24 pro with USB-C will not connect

I have a T570 running Windows 10 64bit. (English) and aquired a nice Thinkvision X24 Pro monitor. It's just that when the USB-C cable is connected (tried multiple cables) to the right USB-C port (or the left) the only thing that happens is that on the PC in devicemngr a root hub USB 3.0 is appearing - but nothing else. There is no monitor being detected. I've tried the monitor with display port on my old T450, and it works fine. The onscreen display is being set to USB-C , doesn't matter if still set to DP port. Tried installing the monitor drivers, updated Intel / thunderbolt software and installed latest bios from Update site. Alas, to no resolve Any ideas greatly appreciated..

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a Lenovo T570 (Type 20JW, 20JX) Laptop (ThinkPad) and ThinkPad Basic Dock (40A00000WW).   I have a monitor plugged into the VGA connection on the docking station.  I have another monitor connected to my laptop with HDMI.  When the laptop is docked, the display will show on the laptop and the monitor connected to the dock.  The monitor connected via HDMI goes black.  When the laptop is off the dock, the HDMI monitor works.  Is there a way to get both monitors to work without having to buy a different docking station?  I know the ideal situation would be to get a different dock with 2 connections on it, but I was hoping not to have to pay for another dock.

Hey SevenForums

I'm new to the forum, and i have a major problem with my monitor. I have seen several others who couldn't force their screen to go past 60 or 75hz, and i have the same problem.

Some people said that if you found the display driver, you could fix this problem, but my problem is that i simply can't.

Since i cannot find my display driver i ask ALL OF YOU to help me!

CAN I FIX THIS IS ANOTHER WAY?

Lenovo, who purchased IBM's PC line does not list any drivers. Many ONLY have the built in plug and play drivers and if that is the case you are stuck with that.

Hi, I noticed that my X1 Yoga 2nd Gen + Thinkvision X1 Monitor (usb-c) no longer is able to turn off the monitor to safe power. What happens is: 1) When the computer tries to turn off the monitor, it seems to also trigger something (perhaps a disconnect of the usb accessories?)2) Which then triggers the computer to recognize something is up3) Which then wakes the computer up4) This cycle continues over an over again This cycle also prevents any sleep or hibernation since the computer seems to think something is always happening.  Am I the only on experiencing this issue? Is there a fix? Thanks for all the help.  Thanks, David

My customer has a brand new T470S, USB-C dock and a Thinkvision X24 Pro monitor with Intel Realsense SR300 webcam build-in.The problem is when USB cable from monitor (for webcam) is connected to USB port on dock, the webcam disappears from Windows device manager after 10-30 sec. Unplugging the USB and re-plug then the webcam appears again.Connecting the USB directly to the T470s, problem is gone.Tried swapping the X24Pro at Lenovo, which makes no difference,Other USB devices works fine on same USB port on dock.Maybe a USB-C dock firmware issue?Lenovo support has not yet returned any replies to me on the support case.Just wondering if others might have same issue?

Yesterday (June 15), I had a major Windows 10 update on my W510 ThinkPad. Now my external monitor (a ThinkVision L2440P) isn't correctly identified as a device, and the result seems to be that the fonts overall are grotty--much less crisp than they were prior to the update. The driver is NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M, and this has been successfully updated. Right now, both the integrated laptop monitor and the external monitor are identified in the Device Manager as "LCD 1920x1080". Does anyone have a suggestion for how to get back to the crisp fonts I had before this update?  Many thanks!

I just recently connected dual TV P24 IPS monitors to my X1 Yoga (2nd Gen). The monitors are capable of displaying 2560x1440 rez. I have them both connected to the USB-C dock via display port.  One of the monitors displays fine, but the other won't display more than  1920x1080 and even then it continuously flickers. I've tried updating drivers, changing cables, etc.  Is the X1 Yoga not capable of outputting that resolution to both displays at the same time?

Hi!Here is my first post. it's related to fingerprint sensor. Machine is a T570 "out-of-box" with Win 10 PRO. I ran MS Windows updates then Lenovo updates through Lenovo companion program.I notice after applying proposed fingerprint driver (Synaptics Metallica MOC touch FP driver - V5.2.3515.26)  sensor doesn't work anymore ... To log in I'm forced to use the PIN code or password way. Sensor no longer recognizes my finger. In fact it is the sensor itself that is no longer functional (no light). Obviously before I tried to configure the sensor again but without success ... Using the previous driver through drivers manager, everything works again (5.2.3512)Has anyone had the same problem? Thanks in advanceRegards

Whenever I boot up this specific t570 it does not see the nvme drive in the boot menu.  On another one it does, but on this one it does not.  If we boot into our WDS server it will not detect a drive either.  But it will on our other T570.  I've done everything I can think of other than opening it up at this point.  Can anybody think of something else to do before I do that?  I don't want to do that because this is a demo unit and don't want to accidentally damage the plastic casing.

Hi there,So far I've been using a good old T61/T60 blend. Today I received a brand new T570 students' edition (512GB SSD, 8GB Ram, nVidia graphics, UHD display).Alas, the trackpoint has a mind of his own. Vertical movements are fast and may also be precise, I can't tell for sure. However all horizontal movements are noticeably slower. Then, the pointer would move without the stick being touched, for several seconds. The trackpad is useless while the pointer is moving. Precise and fast movements as known from my old thinkpad are practically impossible. What did I try so far trying to solve the problem?- updated bios and driver via thinkvantage system update- on top of that I also tried lenovo bridge via browser, but did not find any newer driver versions- I (de)activated enhanced mouse pointer acceleration, with no effect- I also removed and reinstalled the red dot from the stick - no effect- only deactivating the trackpoint helps, it even increases the precision of the touchpad, which seems to be constantly disturbed by the trackpointWhat can I do? Send the laptop back to lenovo? To me it seems someone was incapable of programming a solid driver for the trackpoint, and I struggle to understand this because my 10 years older thinkpad does not have problems of this kind. Thank you!

Is it possible to have an SSD together with a HDD in the T570? I spoke to a sales rep in Australia who assured me it was possible, but advised me to contact technical support about the details; I was informed by technical support that it was not at all possible. Plugging an SSD into WWAN slot was specifically excluded by the tech rep as an option. I am asking this because in my T500, with which I have been happy for many years, I had a 256GB SSD for my OS and programs and a 1TB HDD (in the Ultrabay) for my files; the latter could be conveniently removed for transport when necessary. This set-up was not possible in the T560, for which reason I have delayed replacing my T500.
