How do I connect an external monitor to a new Dell XPS 13?

Q: How do I connect an external monitor to a new Dell XPS 13?

We got two new Dell XPS 13 for users and there does not seem to be any video out ports like on previous models. This runs Windows 10 Professional and has an internal screen resolution of 1920x1080. Looks like there is 2 USB 3.0 super speed ports and possibly a (thunderbolt)??? port?
I've heard of USB-C so I'm not sure if this one port on the left side is that, or if its thunderbolt. I googled thunderbolt to hdmi adapter and in all the images I find it always shows a mini display port on one end despite the descriptions saying thunderbolt.

So whats the cheapest way to get HDMI out on this laptop?

Hi,
The Thunderbolt( USB Type C port) on the Left Hand side deals with the video output on the system. You will need to purchase a USB Type C to HDMI adapter to display video.
The cable is available on the Dell website here

I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop running Windows 10. I have just purchased a Dell U2515H monitor which I am waiting for delivery for as we speak. I believe the monitor has quiet a few inputs however I am not 100% sure which lead to get to connect them both and which port I use on the Dell Laptop. Looking on the left hand side of my laptop there is a port with a lightning sign next to it, is that called Thunderbolt? and is that my monitor/display port? and what lead do I need? it looks like some sort of micro socket!

My old dell laptop L502x is a bit quirky and caused me to buy a desktop, however, i think it is still saveable. when i have it display to an external monitor via hdmi, it works 100% with no problems. however, when i use the monitor that is physically attached to the laptop, i will get a " A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" BSOD. from what i've gathered over numerous crashes, i believe its a problem with the integrated graphics in the processor, since they are not used when outputting via hdmi. i could be wrong tho, any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, all, I have a Dell XPS 15 laptop and recently bought a Asus MB169B external USB monitor.  When I plug the monitor in, the laptop monitor (not the external monitor) flickers about every half second.  If I unplug it, it stops.  I upgraded my video driver to no avail.
Is it simply a power supply issue (the external monitor  does not have a power cord)?  Anything I can do?  It does it even if I have the laptop plugged in and charging.  
*something interesting - I just discovered if I duplicate the display and not extend the flickering goes away...but that kind of defeats the point of a dual monitor for me.
Thanks.

Hi NATURAL1DAVE,
What is the exact system model? 
Have you connected the external monitor to a dock or hub or directly to the system USB port?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the BIOS, update and restart the machine and check.
Reinstall the video drivers and chipset drivers for the system from the above link and check.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi everyone,
I have a new hardware:

Dell XPS13 (9360) with Thunderbolt 3
Dell U3417W 34" monitor  (3440x1440 px)

I have prepared everything on my table because I had no idea that new Dell only has Thunderbolt 3 and no mini display port. I was kind of surprised (in a bad way) that I will need another reduction.
The problem is that I can only input display port, mini display port and HDMI into the new Dell U3417W monitor. I am not sure how much resolution I can squeeze from HDMI, so what is left are those display ports. 
Should I buy USB-C -> Display port cable like for e.g. Startech USB Type-C to Displayport cable, 1m (CDP2DPMM1MB) which could possibly do the job? Or perhaps even some Thunderbolt 3 cable?
I need to have 3440x1440 px @ 60 Hz where some of those cables support only @30 Hz and they do not explicitly state that 3440x1440px resolution is supported.
I would rather avoid those bugged Dell docking stations where the whole internet (e.g. Amazon) is snowed by users complaints.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I have had a Yoga 2.13 for 2.5 years and have, in the past, connected to a couple of 24" monitors using the HDMI port and cable.   For the past three months, I was on the road and never used an external monitor.  Now, I try to connect to a monitor that I used before, with a cable I used before and the monitor does not detect a signal. I have tried another monitor with the same cable. Still get the messsage "no signal detected". I have switched to two other cables - same issue. I have updated the Intel graphics driver, etc. I have spent several hours updating various drivers, etc. I suspect one of two things: 1. I may have upgraded to Windows 10 in the last three months and that is the cause of the problem. 2.  The micro/mini HDMI port on the Yoga is dead. Any ideas on what to do next?

Now I am confused that mine monitor has two cables; one of which is blue and the other one is white, having three larger pins inside. Both these wires are connected to my desktop CPU. Now my question is that, it is obvious that the blue wire can be connected to my laptop but what about the other one, this wire is connected to the power supply of my desktop pc, and when it comes to laptop, would mere one wire (blue) suffice for the electricity or other things?

Hey. I have a Windows Vista and recently I had alittle accident where my laptop fell from my bed so this caused the screen to crack. I got a new monitor (a dcl lcd monitor) and when I first got it, it would only let me veiw the external monitor via safe mode. One day I was messing with it and I actually got the monitor to work in normal windows mode. It worked for about a week but one day, I forgot to plug my laptop back in so it ran out of battery and ever since, I have not been able to get it to work in normal windows mode. I have tried starting it normally and pressing Fn + F5 and nothing happens (that I can see because my laptop screen lights up when in Windows mode but the screen is so cracked, I cannot see a thing)..i've also tried going into windows normally and pressing the windows button+X to bring up the "mobility center" but as I said previously, I cannot see anything. I've tried going into the mobility center via safe mode but it does not let me do ANYTHING in safe mode with minor exceptions of being able to go online to try and figure this out.

Dell S Series S2415H 

I have read all about ghosting effect, color leakage and slower response time while gaming. Not sure how to determine what is good. I am inclined towards BenQ GW2470 as it is new, cheap and also has good reviews.

I bought my Lenovo Yoga 900S a while back and totally love it, no complaints. Then I received my LG 22M38A monitor this lunchtime and the fun began... I have a VGA to USB adapter, and every time I connect to the laptop my wifi disappears. And I don't meant that it just drops and I have to reconnect, it even disappears completely from the available networks.  It's not my broadband - that still works on other devices. It's not even the monitor, as I can plug that in direct with the VGA cable to another, older laptop we have in the house. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless device drivers but that didn't seem to help (but I did notice that when I connect the monitor the Device Manager seems to flicker, as if it's running a new hardware scan). Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi,
I've been trying for hours to get my Lenovo Thinkpad notebook to connect to the monitor I use for my home computer. I have unplugged the cable in the computer and connected it to my notebook as I usually do to duplicate the screen across two monitors... Only this time it hasn't worked.
The main reason why I want to do this is because my notebook display looks stretched on the notebook screen but when I connect it to the external monitor it always goes normal. This is something that also doesn't want to change no matter what resolution the screen is or however many Google suggestions I read. Any help?
My notebook isn't registering that I have connected the monitor. I have tried changing it from PC to AV and back again, pressing Fn+F7 simultaneously which usually does the trick, and I also tried pressing the windows button on the keypad and 'P' simultaneously but the mouse only briefly shows an hourglass next to it then nothing happens!!
In the setting 'connect to an external display' it doesn't detect that there is an external monitor plugged in. If anyone knows any miracle tricks I would really love for their advice!
Thanks for any suggestions.

I have a problem with an HP Envy m6-k125dx.
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/hp-envy-starts-and-goes-directly-to-hibernate.1203428/

The first step to troubleshoot it is to test the monitor (according to HP support).

Their product specs say it has an HDMI port.
https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04094893
but not what kind of HDMI port it is.

What type of HDMI port is on the HP Envy m6-k125dx?

Then I can order an adapter to see if the monitor is the problem.

I need an adapter that will fit a 15 pin VGA. The monitor will also accept the other plugin with more pins (whatever that is called)

So I need whatever type of HDMI port the HP Envy m6-k125dx has that will connect to a normal computer monitor?

What do I need to test this monitor?

Also, I don't get any access to BIOS or any of that stuff. So when I turn on the computer pressing Esc or F11 won't even show anything on the screen. Is the ability to read the monitor at that point related to a bad video card. It is just a black screen. not even a cursor shows

Anyway, I need to start the troubleshooting process and I need to know which adapter to get.

I have a Yoga 11s that started having hdmi connection issues about a year ago and has recently quit connecting to an external monitor via HDMI completely. We tried upgrading to Windows 10 to see if that would overwrite any software issues - no luck. The HDMI port actually appears loose. I did an extensive search of the forum and found posts that recommended cutting down the rubber around the base of the hdmi cord - tried that and at least I had a little activitiy - in the upper right hand corner of the external monitor up popped a box that says DVI then VGA then HDMI - but then says No Signal. Tried the graphics card update recommended on a post from long time ago and a popup indicated I had a newer version already installed. I have taken it to a laptop repair place - said they couldn't get parts from Lenovo. I found an "authorized" Lenovo repair shop locally - when I called they said they only work on business machines Called Lenovo and they told me to take it to Best Buy - however since I purchased this directly from Lenovo, Best Buy said they can't work on it. I would rather not send it into Lenovo because they tried to charge my hubby hundreds of dollars when his 15 day brand new laptop quit working, claiming damage - luckily extensive pictures taken and dated prior to sending it in thwarted that attempt at extortion. Does anyone have any suggestions?

One simple question:
Has anyone succesfully connected the Dell XPS 15 9950 to an external monitor that runs on 2560x1440 @144Hz?
I have asked Dell employees over chat in three different countries, they all say different things.
I would think that one could use the thunderbolt3 enabled usb-c port to do this by running a usb-c to displayport cable to the monitor.
I have searched the internet for a week and didnt find an conclusive answer. 
The usb-c to displayport cable exists (Plugable and Startech makes them) and both are capable of driving an external monitor @144hz, but it is unknown if Dell supports this. 
I would love to find out your experiences! If you have experience with other resolutions @144hz, or even @120hz, let me know as well! 
If it's not possible it's a dealbreaker for me.

Dear all,

I am encountering the following problem and would very much appreciate your help with it: I am using an somewhat dated IBM ThinkPad (R50e), which I'd like to run with an external monitor.

Now, I have connected the monitor (Fujitsu Siemens Scenicview A19-3A) to the external monitor connector using a DVI - VGA/SVGA/XVGA monitor adapter. I have then switched the display output location to "LCD & external (CRT) monitor" using the Fn+F7 key combination, but the external monitor seems not to receive a signal (at least none that he'd be willing to transform into some type of display) -- it remains all black.

I also installed the monitor device drivers from Fujitsu on my laptop, but to no avail.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be and how I might be able to get the external monitor to work with my laptop?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Nathan
 

A:How to connect external LCD monitor to laptop (IBM ThinkPad R50e)?

You just need to push the plug in securely (even tighten the thumb screws, if it has any)
Then turn on

It should default to the external, straight away
If not use the Fn+F7 keys as you said (note: I haven't downloaded your manual to confirm this)

By the way, the monitor works normally, and all, doesn't it ?

I have a Yoga 900 and I just got a Dell S2718D external monitor.  The monitor has USB C and HDMI video ins, and I can connect from the USB C port on the Yoga with an HDMI adapter, but the monitor isn't detected when going straight to USB C.  I'm at my wit's end on this one, I can't find a solution.  Please help!

Hi - I've just gotten my Inspiron 5000 i5(7th gen) with HD Graphics 620 displayad.  The laptop has a HDMI port and I wondered if I can connect it to an external monitor and have my display on both?  I've tried a HDMI to VGA connector but that only seems to allow either or - I thought it might be the adaptor but is it actually that the laptop doesn't support dual monitors?  And if it does - can anyone give me any pointers on what needs to be configured to allow the double display?

Thanks!
