G500: Multiple External Display Support and DisplayPort

Q: G500: Multiple External Display Support and DisplayPort

I have the Lenovo G500 which has one each of a VGA and HDMI port. I'd like to connect both an external VGA and HDMI monitor, plus use the Laptop display. It appears that Windows will support this because it recognizes both monitors when connected, but, the display properties tell me to disconnect the 3rd monitor. Is this just not supported? Do I need to move to a USB-based video adapter to achieve this on this model? My other semi-related question is: has anyone had success converting from HDMI to a DisplayPort monitor? Thanks in advance.

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 Bandolier2k,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

I?m sorry to inform you that only one display can be connected using any one of the port and both cannot be activated at one time, and external device cannot be supported to display video.

Do post us back for further queries.

Best Regards

Hi all,

In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.

Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.

So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?

When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.

If you can provide any insight, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

A:Multiple Monitor Support Possible via DisplayPort?

http://www.displayport.org/faq/

there are 2 options:

1) DisplayPort v1.1a hubs available today that allow you to connect multiple monitors to a single DisplayPort connector. Various output configurations are available for these hubs including DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI.

2) you need DisplayPort monitors that support daisychaining. DisplayPort v1.2, supports monitor daisy chaining.
DisplayPort v1.1a displays are fully compatible with DisplayPort v1.2 PCs and graphics cards. A DisplayPort v1.1a display can be the last display in a DP v1.2 chain.
Here’s an example:
A PC with one DP connector is driving two monitors via daisy chaining. The 1st monitor is a DP v1.2 monitor with input and output connectors. The 2nd monitor is a DP v1.1a monitor. DP v1.2 PC—> DP v1.2 monitor with in & out connectors—->DP v.1.1a monitor.

This model is with Xeon CPU, Quadro P2000 graphics card and 1080 screen. The model of the monitor is Dell U2713HM.  When I connect my P52 to this dell monitor via a miniDP to Displayport cable, the monitor model is recognized in "Nvidia control panel" and "Display settings" of Windows, but in Display setting it shows "second display is not active". The screen remains black with a floating window: "no signal received".  Attempts so far: - In BIOS, I tried switching the graphics option from "hybrid" to "discrete", and set the start-up delay to 10 seconds. When I restart, the start-up Lenovo logo and the BIOS interface is displayed on the external Dell monitor. However, as the machine enters windows, the external display goes black (and so does the laptop display, until I unplug the cable).  - Also, I tried the miniDP to DP cable on other machines and the same screen. Works fine.  - When the laptop is connected to the same screen via a miniDP to DVI-D connector and a DVI-D cable, the Dell display works, regardless of whether I am in "discrete" or "hybrid status". However, I need to set "customize resolution"  in the Nvidia control panel to "2560x1440 40Hz" manually. (Dell display should work at 2560x1440 @ 60Hz, but it does not).

My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!

I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)

On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)

Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)

I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.

Am I on the right track???

Hello, I have Thinkpad T440 (i5-4300U, Intel HD Graphics 4400). I am considering buying a LCD display with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and I am wondering wheather it will work with T440. Important thing is that it will work with 60 Hz refresh ratio. According to the specification [1] it should work: "[email protected] (DisplayPort via Mini DisplayPort cable on integrated models)", but the refresh ratio is pretty low - 30Hz. The specification [2] for i5-4300U, Intel HD Graphics 4400 says something different: "Max Resolution (DP)? [email protected]". So the refresh ration is higher than in T440 specification - 60Hz. Also quick reference quide to Intel processors [3] confirms the resolution and refresh ratio: "U-Processors: 3200 x 2000 @ 60 Hz, 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz". Is 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz supported on T440? I hope that ThinkPad T440 specification is not accurate enough and that limit to 30 Hz refresh ratio only applies for 4k resolution (3840 x 2160). [1] http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T440/ThinkPad_T440_Platform_Specificatio...[2] https://ark.intel.com/products/76308/Intel-Core-i5-4300U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_90-GHz[3] https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/quick-reference-guide-to-intel-processor-graphics

There are countless threads and posts with consumers/owners expressing issues with Lenovo ThinkPad workstations which are not delivering on expected (marketed) features/functionality, due to software related issues. Namely:
- ThinkPad Workstations lose support for external monitors when 'awoken' from Sleep mode and/or Hibernate mode
- Switching the graphics card leveraged by the system has no impact on performance (issues persist)
- It seems the only recourse is to restart the affected laptop and/or not use the features and functionality available on the device
--- this is also the most common "solution" presented to users in threads and/or users are advised to not to use multi-monitor configurations outright
 
Although many systems may be impacted, this post focuses on issues on the ThinkPad P50, the latest Workstation, which happens to have a NVIDIA Quadro M2000M graphics card.
- All BIOS/Firmware/Software is up-to-date as of writing, however, the issue persists
 
This sort of performance from a modern business-grade workstation is unacceptable.
 
As an owner of the Thinkpad P50, I would like to see this issue investigated & fixed before 2017 -- given there are threads/posts that go back, even beyond this year.

Hello,
I recently started to experience problems with DP 1.2 support on my Latitude E5440 with Intel HD 4400 graphics. At firs the monitors failed to show image when I docked my laptop. Undocking and docking again would then resolve the issue. But after a few days it failed to show image no matter what. After long hours of troubleshooting with drivers and firmwares and updates etc I discowered  that disabling the DP 1.2 from my monitor enabled me to get image at least to one of my screens (diabling can only be done when there is an actual image on the screen?! :P )
As I have now come to an understanding through multiple support requests that it is actually something that is not supported under WIN 10 with my setup.
My WIN 10 is an update from WIN 7. Could this be the cause that it was working in first place? I cant confirm it because it was some time ago but I started to use the DP 1.2 option when I had already updated to WIN 10.
Does anyone have an idea of such similar cases or have I been privileged to use something that was not supposed to work in the first place?

My setup:
Dell Latitude E5440
WIN10 upgraded from WIN7
2x Dell U2414H monitors daisy chained
Dell dock

All the best,

I'm using a new ThinkCentre M720t as a home media server, primarily for high-quality audio streaming but could in the future be used for video.  I decided to add a Soundblaster Audigy RX 7.1 PCIe card to the system because it has an optical audio out connector (SPDIF/TOSLINK).  The sound quality is terrible; I'm getting a lot of static in the soundtrack.  This is true whether using the analog audio output or the TOSLINK connector which is suprising as the TOSLINK is just passing through digitally stored audio.  Anyway, this seems to be a known complaint with the card. So then I got to thinking:  Could I just use the Displayport connector from the motherboard as the audio output channel?  I can plug a Displayport-to-HDMI adapter cable into my home theater receiver, ignore the non-existing video info, and just listen to the audio.  Question:  Does the Lenovo M720t deliver the audio via this connection?  Any experience with configuring this?

Dear Community, I have a G500 laptop (i5-3230M; 8 GB RAM, 1 TB SSHD, ATI HD8570M). I have multiple issues with that. On 19.04.2016 I was able to use my laptop without problems, after that I closed the lid. After around 1 hour I opened that again but already had the issues. My problems are the followings:- DVD-RAM disappeared from BIOS, however it is working fine (tested in another laptop.) In my laptop it is blinking, ejecting the tray and is rotating after inserting a disk but after a short period it stops blinking and rotating. I have found some topics already here, but there the problem was with the DVD-RAM, that is not the case by me.- SSHD stoped working as well (tested under Win 7 and Ubuntu; By Win 7 the disk recognized, however the partions were not visible and the disk management wanted to initialize the disk fist. By Ubuntu the disk was not visible in Gparted, but in Testdisk, however it said there is no partition on the disk and droped Read error by every cylinders. It seems something is blocking the reading. Testdisk showed me the capacity of the SSHD and the size of the used space as well!) The laptop was clean inside and wasn't hot. What could cause such problems and how can I fix it? Unfortunatly the warranty ended last November. If possible I would require solutions where I can at least access to my data on the SSHD. Thank you in advance!

Hi vasadam , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Initially best if you turn off the PC and remove  the optical drive , SSHD, and battery while unplugged from the ac adapter. Press down power button for 12 seconds to power drain . Return the battery and plug the adapter . Turn on to access the BIOS and F9 to load defaults F10 save and exit.  Shut down. 
 
Connect back the optical drive and SSHD making sure that the contacts are good and then turn on to check on BIOS for both DVD drive and SSHD .
 
With the optical drive , if the BIOS still failed to detect it , most likely issue would be the contact between the drive and the motherboard . 
 
For the SSHD , don't attempt to continue with Windows recommended fix and cancel it since it may do some changes with your data inside. Run diagnostics and similar hardware test for isolation. 
 
For data recovery best that you get a service center if they would have other tools to back up for you. 
Update us how it goes .

I have a Lenovo G500 that is giving me headaches.  I am able to boot it up, and I see the screen come on, and I am able to enter bios (or at least I think it is in bios because what can be seen of the screen is "brighter" after I hit down and enter. I am able to connect an external monitor to it, but when I use the "one touch" button (I think it is called the "novo" button) it boots up and displays on the laptop screen and not the external. I need to be able to get into BIOS and see what is happening in BIOS on the external monitor.

Greetings everyone!

This is my very first post and I come with a question. I am looking into purchasing a refurb Dell 990 SFF for basic home usage (spreadsheets, word processing, internet...no gaming or graphic/audio intensive use). The onboard graphics and Displayport is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 2000 with a Displayport 1.1a output. I currently have a monitor with Displayport in but no Displayport out so I can daisy-chain. What is the best strategy for connecting second monitor? Is the native DP 1.1a out splittable for extended desktop? Do I need to buy a DP splitter external peripheral? I should note the additional output options include an old VGA out; all USBs are 2.o. Thanks in advance.

my Lenovo g500 does not show anything at all when I power it on. The backlight is on but the screen is just a black colored screen with not even the boot logo. I can hear the fan spin the moment the power comes on and when I put a disc in, it spins. When I try to connect it to an external display, nothing shows up. I once opened the inside and disconnected the display cord with the motherboard and monitor and reconnected it but it still didn't work. When I charge, the charging indicator lights up. I even uplugged the battery and held down the power button for 30 second while the ac was pulled out and on(tried both). My monitor kinda shows some distorted white blurry ghost looking color when I tilt it back and forth. It's been happening even before the laptop had the black display issue. When this first occurred, I remember seeing the desktop a bit right after the pitch black screen with some warning or error prompt then the screen went black again(with backlight) I heard it might have something to do with lvds cable whatever those are. Not sure how to buy or replace them. I know it's not an inverter or display hardware problem. All I know is that I can't even get to bios or see the logo. It may or may not be running without displaying. Not sure if it's a gpu error or is something inside damaged?

Hello I have an Optiplex 960 with 2 monitors connected, one per vga and one per displayport. When the display with the displayport adapter to vga connected to the monitor, the pc does not start. It's like I'm in suspension. Then when unplugging the pc starts and if I connect the adapter with the pc turned on it gives video to the second monitor. The funny thing that this went perfectly until we changed the disk for a ssd disk. I installed all the drivers but it keeps happening to me.
Thank you

When displaying multiple monitors using displayport, if a monitor display gets powered off, windows will change the monitor configuration and move displays around. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

My external monitor ASUS PB278Q stopped working. I switched out the DP cable which is newly purchased. I have my GPU driver updated and I'm pretty sure I've updated most other drivers on my laptop as well. I'm connecting the DP through the 433835U TP MiniDock Plus Series 3 (https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-433835U-MiniDock-Docking-Station/dp/B0085MQLMQ). For some  reason the laptop doesn't seem to detect the monitor or vice versa. The monitor says DP cable no signal. Other inputs like the power adapter and the wireless mouse I attach to the docking station do work however. I'm not sure what else I'm looking at. I haven't tried using the other inputs like the hdmi (id have to buy an adapter) or the VGA and the one other one it has since I dont have cable for those... I'm not sure how to resolve this. Please provide support, thanks.

I have upgraded my HP Pro X2 612 laptop to Windows 10 and installed all the necessary drivers. I even installed the drivers for the HP UltraSlim Docking Station Product #D9Y32UT#ABA which is supposed to be compatible for the device. I downloaded and installed the drivers from this website:http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pro-x2-612-g1/7109448 Even after installing these drivers, the displayport still did not function. I have tested multiple cables and adapters, all of which functioned on other devices, but to no avail. I have also tried following the fix here:http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c05030352&sp4ts.oid=7109448 Still no external display was detected. Is there a driver or fix that I am missing?

I have a P52 with a P3200 with Max Q; I can use HDMI to plug it into my Dell S2417DG external monitor to use as a second display, but when I try to use a displayport-to-HDMI cable, the computer doesn't even detect a second monitor. The monitor already is on DP as it's input. I tried a USB-B to USB-A, also no dice. How can this be rectified?

Hi all, I am trying to connect 2 external monitors (Asus VW22AT) to my W550S laptop.Via the VGA connection, it works fine (for both monitors, i tried one by one), the display automatically sets to 1680x1050 resolution. My problem comes from the mini displayport which i used with DVI adapter (I also tried with VGA adapter), I can't get the 1680x1050 resolution, it recommands to use a 1920x1080 resolution but the screen is blurred. If I manually set to 1680x1050, the image doesn't use all the screen, each side is black on 3 centimeters thus the image is also blurred. Do you have any solution please?Best regards, Jean

I just bought a used graphics card (Radeon HD 6870) because it has mini displayports for the sole purpose of connecting to my Apple Cinema Display (LED version).

I've tried inserting the mdp that comes out of the ACD into the graphics card and nothing happens. At all.

The graphics card itself works just fine when I use the DVI to my dell.

I'm not sure if it's the ACD not being compatible or the ports being inactive/dead. I'm not sure how to test for the latter since I don't have any other mdp devices.

I'm really stumped. I want to clear up my desk and just use my ACD alone.

Displayport to HDMI cable connected to my macbook 15" retina does not work.I have tried 2 different cables (from 2 different manufacturers) on 2 different HP ProDisplay P232 monitors.  The HP ProDisplay monitor cannot recognize any video source on the displayport connector. I verified on both monitors that the displayport interface works with a displayport to thunderbolt (mini displayport) on my macbook.  I also verified that the VGA interface works fine with VGA to thunderbolt cable to my macbook. I have been unable to find anything on the Apple support forums about an issue with HDMI to displayport. is this a mac issue or HP ProDisplay P232 issue? Does the displayport to HDMI cable have to be displayport 1.2 only?

Unqiue situation here. Never thought upgrading my dual office monitors would result in so much grief! Office PC is a 3rd gen X1 Carbon Thinkpad. New monitors are the Dell P2319H.  After failing to both displays connected to an old Lenovo docking station they assumed that upgrading the docking station to the newer USB Gen 2 docking station would do the trick. But here's the problem, the dock's only connection to the laptop is USB-C. Which does not exist on this old Thinkpad laptop. I had a USB-C to USB-A cable on me and gave it a go. It powers the docks and all the accessories but of course not the 2 additional displays.  If I look up "recommended/compatible" docks for this laptop obviously this one is not listed. The new monitors only support HDMI, Displayport and VGA.  Any idea if this logic would work, USB-C to Mini Displayport cable (both male ends)? In my head it makes sense, but not sure if a single Mini Displayport port is capable of power 2 of these 1080p monitors. Otherwise my last option is to try something another dock.

Hi, I have a 2+ year old Thinkpad x250 which I've connected to an external Philips 24" monitor, using a VGA to HDMI cable - VGA from the laptop to a HDMI port on the Philips.  This connection is used purely as an extender from my laptop.   This has been working perfectly till last week when I decided to replace the VGA-HDMI cable with a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI version.  I thought I might as well utilise the DisplayPort on my laptop since it's there.   When the 2 devices were connected, the Philips couldn't be detected even with Display Settings on Windows 10.  I had to reinstall the monitor drivers and reboot, then all was good - till I shut the lid on my x250.  Upon opening up the lid, the Philips had disappeared from the extender profile and I had to repeat the setup process to get it to be detected again. Though this was really inconvenient, I put up with this for 2 more days before this whole process failed permanently.  Nothing I did could get the Philips detected.  What was more surprising was that going back to the old VGA-HDMI cable now didn't work either.  I repeated this whole cabling circus act with another good monitor and got nothing as well.  The only connection that would work now is a VGA-VGA cable and I'm in a worse (video) position than when I first bought my x250! I'm hoping someone out there may have seen this before and can give me some clues with troubleshooting.  ...
