X1 Extreme and P27H Monitor Compatibility Issues

Q: X1 Extreme and P27H Monitor Compatibility Issues

I have multiple offices that i work from. My ideal setup is to work from a desk with a large monitor, keyboard, speakers and printer but carry my laptop from location to location. I chose the P27h monitor because it has USB-C connectivity. My understanding when I purchased this monitor and computer setup was that I could place my closed computer in a vertical stand, connected to power and usb-c to the monitor, and use the monitor as a hub to run a few other peripherals. At most, this is a wireless mouse and keyboard (logi), a set of powered desktop speakers, and in some cases a printer. Essentially, I thought I had a dock and monitor all in one. I seem to have issues at start up, and intermittent freezing/latency issues during usage. At startup, if the monitor has been left on it has issues connecting the video. In other words, my peripherals will work, but even with the laptop open sometimes I can't extend my monitor. I have the proper power settings (i believe) to close my laptop and continue to run. This works on one of my monitors but not on the other. Depending on which monitor I'm plugging into, I get different results as to whether the video works and how i get it to work. Once working, it functions well but there are freezing issues that I don't think are a function of the computer. Am I asking too much of the P27H monitor? Should i not have considered this a docking station? Any settings I should double check/procedures to follow to make this work? Thanks for the input.

Preferred Solution: X1 Extreme and P27H Monitor Compatibility Issues

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.)


Hi All Recently our company purchase a bulk of x1-carbon and P27h-10 monitors. However we are expericing issues when we try to connect the laptop back to the monitor after some time. It does not wake up from the power saving mode. Even restarting the laptop does not solve this issue. We need to keep restarting multiple times and by chances it will be detected. This happens only with the x1-carbon laptops and we have no issues with other brand laptops like Dell. Just to note we have already update the firmware and drivers for the x1-carbon. The Lenovo on-site engineer have also replcace out display ports and motherboard of the notebook but the problem still exist till date.

Hi everyone, I just bought a ThinkPad X1 Etreme and would like to add a second SSD. As I only use it for storing data, I want to opt for a cheaper SATA based one, as these are also supported. Which M.2 keys are supported on the X1E: B-key, M-key or B&M-key?I would assume that B&M would work, but I am not sure whether there is a downside compared to get the right fit B- or M-key. The option I was looking at was this: http://www.crucial.com/ProductDisplay?urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10151&categoryId=&productId=2429...Would this one work? Any help is much appreciated :-)

Hi, I wanted to replace my 16GB stick with 2 new 16GB sticks for a total of 32 GB. I bought a DDR 4,  2666MHz, 260 pin set from an online store.   I installed it, reboot, nothing.  Won't even get to the LENOVO welcome screen.  I removed and reinstalled the sticks a few times to make sure they were correct. Still no luck.     Is there a list of compatible memory models from the well known vendors (Crucial, Corsair, Kingston, etc) that have been proven to work with the X1 Extreme?  I'm not sure why these didn't work. They were ECC modules. What came with the X1 Extreme I think were non-ECC, but I don't think that is the problem. Not sure what it could be.   Could people let me know what memory sticks (Make & Model number) they've used with the X1 Extreme? Thank you !  

A:X1 Extreme memory compatibility list

The ThinkPad P1 accepts ECC RAM, but I am pretty sure that the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is not compatible with ECC memory.     As far as manufacturer, it shipped with Hynix, Samsung, Micron (Crucial) and Ramaxel SODIMMs, so there are many 2666MHz DDR4 choices out there, but stay away from the "Value" RAM because it is usually of inferior quality. Cheers,

I recently purchased am Asus Rampage III Extreme mobo for my first enthusiast build in several years, and I have some questions about which memory its compatible with.

On newegg, the specifications state that these frequencies will work: DDR3 2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 2000(O.C.) / 1800(O.C.) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066.

Does that mean that I can put DDR2200 memory in that mobo, or that I can overclock DDR1600 up to 1800, 2000, 2133, or 2200?

Thanks for your help!

A:Asus Rampage III Extreme memory compatibility

The overclock RAM bandwidth is dependant upon overclocking the CPU for the most part since CPU and RAM frequency are linked by fixed divider ratio's. Overclocking RAM is usually a by-product of overclocking the CPU.
If you are looking to get the RAM to DDR3-1866+ speeds you should be looking for a faster kit. DDR3-1600 in general will not reach past 1900 for the most part*- if it did then it would be sold as a faster kit.
Buying a DDR3-2000 kit (for example) gives supposed headroom for overclocking, plus has the standard JEDEC RAM profiles embedded within it (DDR3-1066, -1333, -1600) for operating with a non-overclocked CPU. This range of utilisation (along with the higher speed bin) is why faster kits sell for a premium.

* This is assuming the RAM is not over-volted. While the Core i7/i5 CPU's have a maximum memory voltage of 1.875v ( Intel spec pdf Table 2-6, pg.22), I believe any CPU damage that occurs using a voltage over Intel's 1.65v recommendation is not covered by warranty.

We bought Lenovo P27h USB-c screens to go with our Thinkpad P1 laptops so that we could use the monitor as a simple dock providing (slow) charging and a USB hub as well as the display. Unfortunately I haven't been able to make the charging work at all. When I connect the USB-c cable the charging icon flickers on but immediately off again. Has anybody had any success making this combination work? Thanks!, Geoff

A:Charging the P1 from the P27h over USB-c

The P1 simply requires a bigger charger.  The maximum that can be delivered over the USB-C spec is 100W

Wondering if anyone has come across this problem before. I have a brand-new X1 Extreme (bought in March) and a 4-year-old Dell 27" 4K monitor. In the last few days, I've had really low fps when using the monitor, while the built-in display works fine. This is all at the Windows desktop, ie not games or anything that should be super-demanding. Some more details:Laptop is running Windows 10 Pro 1903, fully updated, and there are no problems in Device ManagerThe resolution is 4K, 60Hz refresh rate, connected to a Thunderbolt port via a DisplayPort-USBC cableI had the same problem when I tried connecting with HDMI (which only gets me a nominal 30Hz refresh rate because the monitor only supports an older HDMI spec, but the actual fps I get is way less than that ? maybe 10-15fps)Switching between TBolt ports doesn't helpSwitching to a different monitor also doesn't help, suggesting the problem is with Windows and/or the laptopInterestingly, if I duplicate the display on both laptop and monitor, then the problem goes away. It comes back when I set Windows to display on only the monitor.The monitor was mostly working fine before this. I say mostly, because it's had problems for years relating to waking up from sleep; I'll often have to unplug it from the wall and plug it back in again for Windows to see it. But once it was running, it was okay.

Hello everyone, one of my company's X380 barely wants to connect to the P27h displays. When connected, the computer charges through the screen, but display output won't work. The weird thing: A couple days ago it used to work almost perfectly, there was no updates in between, it just stopped working.Here's what I tried:Trying different screens: Yes, the problems consists between screens, it seems to be a computer-related problemTrying different cables: Trying brand new cables does now show any differnceDownload and install the latest Thunderbold-Driver: This did not change anythingI am running Windows 10 Version 1803, therefore the BIOS Setting for making Thunderbold availble for Windows 10 1709 or earlier does not do the trickIn Device-Manager when the screen is connected, it does not show up as a Display, just the USB-Hub shows up.Does anybody have experience with this kind of problem? It seems to me that it is software-related rather than a defective interface (since it keeps charging and detecting USB-Ports)Thanks for your help in advance, Béla

Dear all, I'm new to this forum and would appreciate your advice on the following. I've always had ThinkPads. I recently got a Macbook Pro 15" 2017 for work and it's super smooth in daily operation when  connected to an external 4k monitor. I'm keen to replicate the smoothness as I hate the visual lag of the cursor etc. in my older T460s when connecting it to the 4k monitor. I like the X1 Extreme because it has longer battery life than the P1. However, I'm concerned that the X1 Extreme's graphics card won't be up to the job of a smooth display on a 4k external monitor. Am I right in saying that the X1 Extreme's GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is NOT up to the job of running on a 4k external monitor smoothly in everyday operation? If yes, will it be solved by the GTX 1650 Max-Q that's in the X1 Extreme Gen 2?If I'm wrong and the graphics cards above are actually fine, please help me understand what I need to make sure I order so that the laptop runs on a 4k external monitor smoothly. I cannot stand the lag in ordinary operation.BestNamir

A:Your advice: X1 Extreme vs P1, external 4k monitor etc.

I should have added:The 4k monitor that I will be connecting my new Thinkpad to is the BenQ PD3200U.

I just bought a Thinkpad X1 Extreme 4k, and I'm looking for a portable monitor to expand screen space for work while traveling.  Does anyone have any suggestions on a portable monitor?  I was looking at the Asus Zenscreen MB16AC, but was wondering if there would be a drastic difference in screen display?  I assume with this monitor I wouldn't need any other devices (I could plug the USB-C directly into the Thinkpad and that would be the power source). Thanks in advance!

My HP G61 laptop running x64 Windows 7 home premium has a connection problem.
All applications except for Internet Explorer 9 cannot connect to the internet.
For example I installed Skype a while ago and it will never stop signing in unless I close from task manager.
I also installed Google Chrome and it will not connect to the internet either.
(And yes, I have tried allowing both programs through my firewall.)
So, is there any way in where I can completely reset my Internet connection settings.
This laptop has a 2.10 Ghz processor and without being able to use Skype or Chrome this laptop is useless.
Thank you very much for your time,

So I've been fumbling around this issue trying to just ignore it for some time now, but for some reason I just can't figure it out now. I have gradually been getting worse and worse video lag issues in games and it gets really annoying in faster paced games like Left 4 Dead 2 and other FPS games. I have come to find even this simple game "slender" to be completely unplayable as I get MAYBE 1-2 fps. And I can't figure out what is wrong, it didn't used to be like this, back when I first got this computer up and running it rand most games at 60fps. Left 4 dead, counter-strike, modern warfare 2. I have a little windows widgit thing that tells me the current state of my video card, and recently it's been telling me that it's almost ALWAYS clocked back to 300mhz, when it should be running at 900mhz when under load. It almost never goes up to 900, and when it does, it dials back to 300 or 775 in like 2 seconds. I don't know what to do, any help would be appreciated.

Hey, I reformatted my Hard Drive today and put Windows XP Professional Service Pack Two on it. I have extreme lag and stability issues which I have never experienced in the past with Windows XP. How could such a thing happen right after reinstalling Windows XP? I can't install applications and sometimes I can't even open something up, because it will just stop responding and my system will crash and I will have to reboot my computer. This happens 5- minutes after I login (if I am very lucky, 5 - 10 minutes). Below is my computer hardware configuration:

Pentium 3 800 MHz processor
256 mb RDRAM
ATI Radeon 9550 AGP (256 mb)
Sound Blaster Live!

Any other information will be provided upon request. Is there anything that I can do to solve this problem?

After some assistance last year from "Oh My", my computer is in much better shape.  However, we were not able to finish.  I moved to the country, and didn't have internet for months - hence, the thread was closed.  
Since then, I've tried wiping the computer through recovery mode (failed and lost the recovery disc), and tried updating to Windows 10 in hopes the issues would be washed away (cannot complete the full Windows update.  This may be due to the fact my computer thinks it's not running Genuine Windows, albeit official Windows bought.)  I would prefer to save the thousands of photos this computer and wipe the rest of the computer, but remain timid to upload the photos to a USB or cloud as a jpeg virus was confirmed last year.  As a sidenote, I do have a drivers and utilities disc that I used to fix the drivers last week.

I purchased an X1 Extreme (4K) a few months ago. I have run into a few issues and was hoping I could get some advice. For reference, I have observed these issues across multiple different Windows versions, GeForce driver versions, and Lenovo BiOS versions. I am happy to answer any follow-up questions in the comments. 1.When I have hybrid graphics enabled, I have observed significant stutter when scrolling in applications such as Google Chrome, Spotify, and more, especially when opening PDFs in Chrome. Turning off hybrid graphics resolves fixes this, but I was wondering if there was another option I had other than compromising my battery life by disabling hybrid graphics.2.When I keep the TrackPoint enabled, it occasionally begins moving the cursor on its own and keeps going for a few seconds, with no apparent way to regain control until it stops. While I can fix this by just turning off the TrackPoint, I enjoy using it and would like to know if there is a different solution to this issue. Thank you in advance!

My laptop is a Compaq Presario F504EA. I have had an external 19" LCD Monitor running sometimes in parallel and sometimes independantly with the laptop. It has its own Power supply, and is only connected to the laptop through a VGA cable.

I was wondering if this could cause the laptop to extremely overheat. With this, the laptop would be un touchable on the bottom side due to extreme heat.

I had also recently upgraded my ram from 1 to 2GB. Would this of had an effect on the heat aswell ?

It is currently in repair due to my keyboard being intermittent along with my wireless; i believe the heat as melted joints or something on the motherboard.


A:External Monitor, extreme heat issue

when was the last time you spray dusted the laptop, that should help the heat issue. but adding more ram should not cause any more than normal heat, the extra monitor might cause more heat cause of the extra power going through the video card, but it should not make it untouchable.

i would try to spray dust the vents and also check to make sure all the fans are working.

Hey Guys,Hope everyone is doing ok, I have this X1 extreme that we recently bought for one of our managers, I had random freezing issues with and without docking station, I shipped it back and they replaced system fan and memory modules, now the machine performance is even worse, didn't get chance to connect it to docking yet, just did windows update and it lags, I click settings and it show after like 5 minutes, you install some app and installation start after couple minutes!! I am about to re open another case and send it back, before doing that anyone had such issues before? is there any special tweaks to do for this pc? its freaking expensive! we ordered it with the highest available specs, also do you think Lenovo would replace it with new machine or they will keep wasting my time by swapping parts? Thank you,

Firstly, the system was running perfectly at 4.2 for 2 months or so. got hold of a swiftech lcs cpu setup, tested out of case etc. installed the ******* after about 8 hours on a custom all internal fit to a Antec 900. had the 2 uv's ready..

upon switching the power switch on the psu, the ROG light, and 2 molex powered cathodes lit up, 140mm fan at top of antec 900 was "twitching" the rog light usually pulses at this point as well as a few other small leds and the 'extreme oc' panel lights are supposed to come on,

having the coolant ready to fill as the pump started i hit the power button, nothing... second try after unplugging peripherals and pump, the cathodes went out...

now upon switching the power switch on the psu, cathodes don't light anymore.. (shouldn't of anyway..)

completely removed the water system, reran all power etc. the standard untidy way, reinstalled air cooler, removed all ram, hdd's gpu's etc. 'extreme oc' lights wont come on anymore..

pushing the 'cmos reset' button on the back makes the rog light go off (lit up dull whole time in stead of pulsing bright) and all lights on the extreme oc panel light up except 'start' :S

any help greatly appreciated.. don't wanna have to buy another one of these boards

Hi, All those processes are normal and correspond to applications or drivers you are using....Kaspersky Internet Security, for one....things you need.

I am not sure why you cannot access msconfig to change startups, maybe it was a benefit as you can do some damage turning off things without any idea what they are....
You have had a Norton (Symantec) program before, possibly Norton Antivirus....I see the Live Update from it is still listed....does any Norton program still remain in use on the computer?

If not, I suggest Uninstalling Live Update in your Add/Remove programs list from the Control Panel....see if that works.

Post back if it does not show in that list or you cannot make it Uninstall.
also, please do this:
Open Hijack This and click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button.
Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.
Click the "Save List" button. After you click the "Save List" button, you will be asked where to save the file.
Pick a place to save it then the list should open in notepad.

Hi Everyone,

I am currently providing remote support using TightVNC to a variety of locations. Increasingly I am noticing that the support that I am providing is to individuals with multiple monitor configurations. In almost all cases where more than one monitor is involved I find myself having to do a lot of scrolling inside the TightVNC program window (and TightVNC is not dissimilar to other remote support programs, such as RealVNC and TeamViewer in this regard).

I am considering purchasing an Extreme Definition monitor in the hopes of eliminating the program scrolling that I am experiencing. My first choice is the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM - LED monitor - 27". This specific monitor has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440.

I would not like to spend a significant sum of money on an extreme definition monitor only to find that it doesn't solve my specific challenge. For example the remote session may be too hard to read on the screen due to text being very small.

If anybody has any experience with this kind of monitor, and specifically with providing remote support whilst using one of these can you please share.

All comments & opinions are welcome.

Kind Regards,


A:Considering an Extreme Res Monitor to improve remote desktop support

Would it solve your issue? Might if the dual monitors you are viewing over VNC are not wider then 2560px. You would need dual monitors yourself to fully solve the issue of scrolling. As for the text size...well that will depend on your eye sight and your personal preferences. But yes, the text will be smaller is most cases.

I am extremly infected. I am infected by Monitor.Win32.Ardamax that keeps creating RKXR.exe files with diffrent names. I am not sure what to do. They keep appearing in the Windows folder. The only program running that I have that is detecting it is Zone Alarm Security Suite, RXKR.exe tried to connect to the internet several times but I denyed them all except the first one, one result had :FTP at the end, I believe this is a hacking trojan or something and I need help getting rid of it. Everytime I scan the Windows folder this comes up or something similar. It keeps renaming them but wont get rid of emNOD 32 AntivirusMalwarebytes anti-malwareSUPERantispywareCounterspydo not detect anythingThis is a photo of RKXR.exe trying to access the internet several timesEdit:I was able to manually remove them from the Windows folder.

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

Only thing I can think of is to disconnnect the external monitor, uninstall any monitors listed and then reboot and hope the computer installs the correct drivers for the laptop monitor.

I've been experiencing general stability issues with the ThunderBolt 3 dock. I purchased Extreme X1 for work because of the impressive specs and portability of the device. Overall I've been very pleased with the performance and build quality of the device and Lenovo's software suite makes keeping everything up to date really easy. WIth that said, I've had LOTS of issues with general stability of this product. It appears to Lenovo had issues with the discrete graphics (Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 ti) which may have mostly been resolved with the latest update. I'm on a fairly recent version of Windows 10 (1803). When using the Thunderbolt 3 dock I still experience lots of issues where the device freezes or becomes unresponsive when docking or undocking. Often times I must force power off the device completely because the device is unable to wake from sleep correctly when docked. I have not tested whether device itself is unable to wake from sleep or if it's just because it is connected from the Dock. However sometimes the device WILL wake correctly but then certain functions will not work, notable USB data will not work often but will be powered (keyboard lights are on but can't use caps lock, for example). Or sometimes the VIDEO won't display at all (thunder bolt graphics issue with discrete GPU) however I can clearly see caps lock works on my keyboard. Note all mentions of keyboard here refer to a USB keyboard wired to the TB dock.  Also worth noting ofte... Read more

I have an X1 Extreme (20MF). I have had issues with using the workstaiton dock constantly.  I shutdown the laptop and when i bring it back into the office I plug in, wait a moment, and then power up via the dock button. I leave the lid down.  I have about a 60% chance that the laptop comes up smoothly on my 34" Samsung ultrawide + wired usb keyboard/mouse.  The other 40% chance my screen doesn't come up and my USB devices are equally 50% chance of being on.  Anyone else experience this issue?   On a side note, I was also using the USB-C dock without any issues with a separate power adapter.  At some point I performed a firmware update and that dock stopped working.  I was forced to go to the workstation dock with has just been plagued with inconsistency.  I wish there was another option for docks.  I see the gen-2 workstation dock is out, ordered one hoping it will be better...

Ok well first off I have attched a DxDiag and two hijackthis files. The first Hijack this file is when most processes are running and the second is when I have closed as many things on the taskbar as possible without it becoming inconvenient.

Now here is the problem, when playing World of Warcraft I normally run at about 120 frames per second. I am not sure if the computer specs I entered when registering show up in this post so I will just add that I have a 2.4ghz core 2 duo, 4 gigs of ram, and an 8800GTX.

Now this should be more than enough to run WoW at max settings comfortably, and it usually is. The problem I am experiencing is at seemingly random intervals my computer will become extremely bogged down. The frame rate will drop to well below 30fps sometimes hitting as low as 5fps. This will happen even if I turn the settings all to low. When this first started happening I thought that perhaps my virus scanner was turning on during game play but this wasn't the issue. I have tried closing any and all programs running in the background and it doesn't seem to fix the issue.

Usually the only way to temporarily fix this is to restart my computer as even if I restart World of Warcraft the problem persists. Once the computer has been restarted the game usually runs fine for a few hours though sometimes it happens again right away. I recently cleaned out my case to make sure it wasn't over heating as well.

Now this isn't a problem I have always had. W... Read more

I have a X1 Extreme notebook and Thinkpad wireless keyboard. I mostly use my notebook with extrenal display and don't usually open it at all. And I can't wake my notebook up from sleep with help of keyboard. I have checked the device manager, power management settings for the devices to ensure they can wake from the computer sleep. I have done this for a number of devices and USB entries in the device manager - anything which I think is related to the keyboard / mouse including USB controllers. HID devices etc.Could you advice smth to fix it?

Hey, I already discussed my issue in a previous post, but the issue hasnt been fixed yet and the problem is at least narrowed down now - so here the description of the issue: In "idle mode" the CPU is running at rather high clock speeds (around 2.3 to even 3.84Ghz). This result in a pretty hot (49° to 60°) laptop while not even working on something - to mention actually working on something. Normally it should be maximum around 40°.- Changing Energy/performance profiles on the battery icon, doesnt really change anythig significantly (except for the best peformance mode, which kicks the CPU to a constant 4.00Ghz...)- Interestingly, what does sometomes help is plugging of the ThinkPad, as can be seen in the screenshot - but as soon as it is plugged in, the frequency is very high again. I already tried the following: - Resetting Windows and installing it from scratch- Updating BIOS and drivers (maybe I have overseen something there...)- Installing new fans (what the Lenovo Service recommended)- Changing the intelligent settings in Lenovo Vantage to "cool and quiet" Does anyone have further suggestions? It is hard for me to understand this issue, since everything seems to be up to date and even resetting Windows has not helped. Would be very thankful for any advice. Greetings,Rudi p.s.: here the screenshot with the different idle modes

Two days ago I had a wireless internet system installed in my home. The provider installed a dish on the side of the house which sends and receives wireless broadband to a cell tower on a nearby mountain. From the dish a cable is run into the house and the dish cable goes into a Linksys 2.4 g router. Running speed checks from speedtest.net shows I get the speed. But the consistency of the wireless system is woeful. On uploads, the upload will stop for several minutes before starting again. On downloads or browsing, I go to many pages where I get the "page not found" message and have to hit "refresh" several times to see the page. As a guess, I would say I have an issue like the above every five minutes with this wireless system.

Is this kind of poor performance normal for the setup I have?
Is there any way to fix this issue?
Is the issue an issue that the provider should be able to fix?
Is there any way I can track or graph what is going on with this wireless system over time (i.e. is there software that will continually monitor the performance and show me the times when the system is not responding? Using a graph or some kind of monitoring readout I can at least get the provider to admit there is an issue.

Thank you in advance for your replies.

Hello all, this is my first post on these forums. I just wanted to ask this question.

I recently purchased a : 24" LCD HDTV / Monitor for use as a monitor, but I have a few serious questions.

Well currently at the time of righting this post I am using the above monitor, and I have to squint to even read my text.

Some details:
Native resolution is 1920 x 1080, but I had to manually change it to 1828 x 1030 for it all to be within the screen (at native, things were outside).

I am using a HDMI cable to connect my monitor to my Nvidia Geforce GTS 250

Seeing as it is a good connection (HDMI) with a good resolution and 1080p, not to meniton the good video card it shouldn't be like this.

The text is so unbearable to read that I have to squint and be really close to even read what I am typing right now. The text just doesn't look right, it is very blurry and fuzzy looking. Everything else is mostly fine as far as pictures and videos and stuff, but there is like a white-border esque to the text and small images. I tried changing the sharpness and other various settings on the TV / Monitor but that didn't help anything.

If somebody could help me to make my new LCD TV (that I use as a monitor...) to look good and have the text clear please let me know!
Answers highly appreciated, thanks!

I still need help on my situation... If somebody could help that would be great seeing as I can hardly use my PC with the monitor like this.

Cannot get the display connect to the laptop through the included USB-C cable. Tried using both available ports, and through a docking. Windows detects that something is connect, but says ?Display connection might be limited?. The display doesn't appear in device manager, only the USB hub on the display.  Laptop is updated with latest windows. Also tried updating the thunderbolt 3 firmware. DisplayPort through DP cable on dock works fine.
