Lenovo T450 and connecting 2 external monitors to ...

Q: Lenovo T450 and connecting 2 external monitors to ...

I am helping my wife set up her office at home. Her work gave her a Lenovo T450. My task is to set it up with two monitors, using the Mini-Display Port.I have already purchased the Lenovo Display Port to Dual Display Port Adapter! So, now I am looking for two monitors that each have a Display Port. I am considering either two monitors with 3840x2160 resolution or two monitors with 2560x1440 resolution. Has anyone else done this and did you have any problems? I am considering the Samsung LU24E590DS/ZA 23.6? Monitor or the LG 24UD58_B 24? Class UHD Free Sync IPS Monitor. I am open for suggestions of other monitors around the $300 - $350 price range. Thanks

A teacher where I work would like to use an external monitor along with a projector that is in his classroom.  We've been able to get both work along with the laptop's display but not in the order he would like them.  He connected the projector to his laptop via VGA, and the external monitor is connected via VGA to a DP adapter.  He would like to mirror the projector with his laptop and extend to the monitor.  We can't seem to get it to do that configuration though.  We have also tried connecting the projector to the DP adapter and the monitor to the laptop's VGA port.  It just does the same thing.  Is there anything I'm missing?

I am trying to connect two external monitors to my HP Probook 650 G1 laptop (and use them along with the onboard screen for a total of 3 displays).  Plugging one monitor in via VGA works fine.  However, when I plug a second into the DisplayPort, the first monitor turns off and both external displays say "No Signal".   I was unable to find a clear answer in the product spec, but it appears there may be a limit of 2 screens using the onboard ports (including the laptop screen).  HP support was completely useless in answering my question and linked to the same spec document that did not have the answer.   So, I tried using a USB adapter to provide an HDMI port (DisplayLink chipset).  However, even plugging in this HDMI cable causes the onboard VGA to disable and both external monitors say "No Signal" Is there any way to connect two external monitors and use them at the same time as the built-in laptop screen?  Thank you.

Hi,Please help me with my problem.  I have a Thinkpad Edge E550: Serial Number: PF0BM50W, Product Number: 20DF0040US, BIOS : J5ET50WW 1.21 Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview 64bit Build 14342.rs1_release.160506-1708Switchable graphics: AMD Radeon R7 M265 Series (driver  15.20.1045-150622a-185839C-Lenovo)Intel HD Graphics 5500 (driver 10.18.15.4281) I have made sure to have all drivers updated to the latest version (not only video drivers but all of them). 1st problem - When connecting a external monitor using the DE-15 VGA port, the monitor gets briefly detected and quickly loss signal and disconnects.

No matter how flashy and improved windows gets, it always contains the same amount of Microsoft stupidity that I know will never disappear from the windows platform.

I have an HP laptop with the standard built in Intel graphics card. I always connect my laptop to one of my LCD monitors or lately my plasma TV. Its great. but these two problems really kill my mood:

1- when I connect them it often times forgets what my previous settings were (Second monitor set as primary, not mirrored) so i have to always go into settings and change that. For weeks it might remember those settings then out of the blue it reverses them so that the laptop monitor is actually hte primary while the TV is the secondary, or isnt checked as "Attached". What is this? In 2008 Microsoft still can't get something like this right. On one of the monitors it forgets the resolution i set it to so I have to keep resetting it.

2- When I unplug the external monitor from the laptop sometimes, like right now, the task bar becomes invisible (except for the start menu button) so the only way for me to figure out where the icons in the tray are is by mouseovering them. totally retarded. I have to restart to fix this.
What pisses me off the most is concern #1. it should remember what the settings are without contantly reversing them or worse, me having to go into settings and actually tell it that there i another monitor connected.

Anybody have this problem? Are there any fixes? I have already downloa... Read more

A:Connecting external monitors/TVs to laptop w/Vista

I've just noticed something that nobody else has, Microsoft isn't stupid, infact its the latter, No.1 Rule when connecting hardware... Turn off the computer before connecting any new hardware, I worked this out with Windows XP and if it's been happening since this version then the problem isnt Microsoft's operating system , it's the user being oblivious of how to use the operating system without fault.

I was using two external USB monitors (Asus 168B+ USB3 and Lenovo LT1421 USB2) with my L520. Now I switched to a W530. Running those monitors connected to the docking station works flawlessly. Hooking the displays direct to the machine doesn't work. One of the displays shows a blank screen.Both monitors are shown in device manager, both are shown in Windows display settings, but without resolution settings.When I replaced the LT1421 with a second Asus I borrowed for testing, both displays were fine.My first guess was a power issue, but connecting both displays to a self-powered hub didn't improve. I think it's not a DisplayLink driver issue because my L520 setup was working fine. Any suggestions?

Hi all, I have a Yoga 260 and two external monitors.  It does not seem to matter how I connect them, USB, HDMI, whatever the thing with a square on one end and USB on the other, directly or through a splicer I can not get the Yoga to recognize the third screen individually (yoga has one monitor, plus 2 external monitors = 3). I go to display settings but it just will not recognize the third monitor at all unless I use HDMI out of the laptop in to a splicer then 2 HDMIs out and in that case I only get duplicates on the two external screens. Any suggestions about the best way to set up... as in "it worked for me when I connected USB to one monitor, then daisy chained that to a second one" or "it worked for me when I HDMI to one screen and USB to a second" etc... Thank you

I currently have a Yoga 2 Pro laptop that has Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, 1 micro HDMI port, and a 3200x1800 resolution.

I want to connect it to a pair of desktop monitors (lower resolution) and a wired USB keyboard as effortlessly as possible (since I will be moving the laptop back and forth a lot). What hardware is needed to accomplish this?

Let's say I wanted to connect it to this EVGA dual-monitor stand (haven't purchased it yet), which appears to use two DVI inputs, would I need some dual DVI into HDMI adapter (if such a thing even exists)? Or would I be better off just trying to connect it to a laptop docking station?

If I don't go the docking station route, I would like to connect to my wired/USB keyboard via Bluetooth if possible. Just googling around came up with a few USB -> Bluetooth adapters (1, 2). Does anyone have any experience with these or better recommendations?

Lastly, will jumping from 3200x1800 resolution to something like two 1400X900 resolutions cause any issues? I don't care if the picture quality is lower on the monitors, but I do want to make sure they're working full-screen.

I have no experience connecting a laptop to normal desktop hardware in this way so I'd really appreciate any input or suggestions. If you have any hardware recommendations (including a docking station or better dual-monitor setup), I'd love to hear them. Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Connecting laptop to external monitors/keyboard

Take a look at Lenovo's USB 3.0 docks here, type your model in to get the recommended ones: http://shop.lenovo.com/ca/en/accessories/dock-port-replicators/
One USB cable will connect everything back to the Yoga.

The converting to Bluetooth makes no sense, you're just adding more devices and hassle. A simple USB hub would be better if you didn't go for a full dock. Connect the wired mouse and keyboard to the USB dock or buy a new Bluetooth keyboard/mouse.

Once you undock the Yoga's screen should kick back in and work at it's supported resolution.

What resolutions and refresh rates are supported for external monitors (HDMI) on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro i7 (59428032) Specifically, I'm looking at the Samsung 28" 4K Ultra HD Widescreen Monitor (U28D590D) [3840 x 2160] I've hooked up to my HP w2408h monitor (1920x1200) with mixed results (mostly unacceptable).  Most items (icons, images) appear quite large and cropped.  For some applications (such as the View/trim preview window in GoPro Studio) appear to be cropped to about 1/4 of the image (if you imagine an image split into 4 quadrents, only the top left is visible). I had hoped that I could use the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro both as an extremely portable notebook and a desktop (when connected to an external monitor, keyboard & mouse).  I'm beginning to doubt that this will work.

A:Supported external monitors on Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

While i can't offer any insight on a 4K monitor as i dont have one myself, I can tell you that is works perfectly on a 25" monitor at 1920x1080, and everything looks perfect, exactly as it is when connected to my desktop. I'd suggest that after connecting the external monitor you enter the resolution settings, make sure the second monitor is set as 'Extended monitor' and that the resolution for it is set to its native resolution. Aside from that, if you're working with the Yoga's native resolution (3200x1800), then you probably have the DPI set to 200%, which will also affect external monitors, making some things look pretty bad. There is no magic solution for this case, either drop the resolution and lower the DPI, or.... as much as i hate to say it... get used to it... sorry. I personally dropped the resolution on my yoga and lowered the DPI, so i'm good both with the yoga screen and my external monitor when at home.

My Ideapad 720s is a 4k laptop and so are both my external monitors. When I connected the HDMI cable into the USB port on my laptop the monitor was VERY blurry! So I was forced to use this adapter to plug the HDMI into it and the adpater pligged into the USB-C on my laptop. This is the adapter I used: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/j5creat...?skuId=5930600 So that adapter worked to connect one external monitor but I wasn't able to get a 2nd monitor to work sucessfully.

I have a lenovo thinkpad t450 for schoolwork, general web browsing, and some low key gaming. I threw in 8gb of ram to speed it up a little, and I am considering adding an external graphics card to hook up to an external monitor. I did a little research and got in way over my head. I read up on the subject for an hour or so, and at the end I had no idea if it was even possible to do this with my computer. I'm hoping there will be a way to regularly connect and disconnect the laptop from the monitor and GPU so I can still maintain mobility. As far as I can tell I need something called a PCI slot to connect the graphics card, which (as far as I can tell) I do not have. I do see something called a Realtek PCIE CardReader. Not sure what that means. If it is possible to use the external graphics card with my built in screen that would be wonderful, but I didn't see anything about that. Any help would be vastly appreciated, and sorry for being such a tech ignoramus. Also advice for storing the graphics card and keeping it cool would be nice as leaving it sitting on a desk seems wrong/dangerous.  Cheers, Angus

I have two external drives:1. Seagate 1TB Backup Plus.2. WD My Passport Ultra 2TB. Both devices work fine; I connect them to the laptop and can read/write data successfully. The problem is I cannot safely eject external drives through Safely Remove Hardware, they just do not show up in the list (see screenshots below). I did some research and found that when external drives are connected as USB 2.0 devices, I can safely eject them (see first screenshot below), when I connect them as USB 3.0 devices, option to eject disappear (see second screenshot below). The reason it bothers me at all is that I do lots of backups for work (sometimes a TB per day) and recently had Seagate external drive corrupted because it wasn't unplugged safely. What I did so far: - updated Intel USB 3.0 Root hub driver and Intel USB 3.0 extensive host controller driver to latest version - ISSUE NOT SOLVED Currently I connect external drives as USB 2.0 devices. Backups are safe, but speed is very slow when I need to copy terabyte of data. I need a solution. I suspect this is something with a driver, but I installed all latest USB drivers from Lenovo web site.Need help.

It appears that the backlight on the keyboard of the T450s times out after a minute or so and turns off.  I can then turn it back on by pressing FN + Space but it's extremely annoying to have to keep doing this.  I am not seeing anywhere in the bios or lenovo settings where I can have the keyboard backlight stay on always unless I manually turn it off.

I see in the change log that they added a new version of the Lenovo Diagnostics in the 1.27 version of the BIOS for the T450 (20BV0005US). The problem is, when you press F10 on boot up, rather than start the Lenovo Diagnostics like it is supposed to, the screen flashes a couple of times and the computer reboots. Likewise, if you press F12 on boot up, Tab over to the applications menu, arrow down to Lenovo Diagnostics, and press Enter, the screen flashes a couple of times and the computer reboots. I have attempted to address this by feedback in the software and drivers downloads section, on a feedback from a motherboard replacement, and by calling in to Lenovo after the motherboard was replaced, and have never had this issue solved.
