X1 Yoga and OneLink+ Dock Not Detecting External Monitors

Q: X1 Yoga and OneLink+ Dock Not Detecting External Monitors

I'm unable to get my X1 Yoga to detect external monitors when plugged into the OneLink+ dock. This started occuring when my computer upgraded to the creators update. I thought I found a thread of others with the same issue (linked below), but it turns out I was waiting for a fix that didn't apply to me. I'm super frustrated right now. Stuff I've tried so far.1. Updated all drivers using Lenovo Service Bridge (even optional drivers)2. Installed the Fall Creators update preview (after being told it would fix the issue)3. Completely reinstalled Windows4. A Single VGA monitor5. A Single Display Port Monitor6. 6 different cables At this point I'm convinced there's an issue with the dock. There's a firmware update available for it, but you can't install it unless it is actively connected to a monitor (go figure). When attempting to install, I get the code 255 "Can't connect to Synaptics VMMxxxx DP hub IC" If anyone has any sugestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. It used to work perfectly, then about the time I installed the creators update it started getting flaky, now I can't get it to work at all. Previous thread I was following. Note that I'm linking to a post where they show the dock working (annoying).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/Windows-10-creator-update-breaks-Lenovo-...

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 the exact same equipment at home and at work and yet the resolution on my second monitor at work will not go to the 3840 x 2160 that I have at home. Both locations have:1. X1 Yoga (first gen, model number 20FQ002YUS) -- It's the same laptop that I take between home and work2. ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (model number DU9047S1)3. Two (2) Asus monitors (model number PB287Q) that go to 3840 x 2160 max resolution, connected to the OneLink+ Dock via DiplayPort cables I've been running this configuation with NO PROBLEM at home for the past 9 months.  So I recently purchased a new OneLink+ Dock and two new monitors for my work office and while one monitor will go to 3840 x 2160, the other will not go above 1920 x 1080, UNLESS, I use a mini DisplayPort cable from the second monitor directly into the X1 Yoga (bypassing the OneLink+ Dock) HERE'S WHAT'S BAFFLING: I assumed it was the dock and so I brought the one from home to work and found I had the SAME problem, suggesting it was the second monitor.   But I exchanged the second monitor for a new one and still have the same problem.  The docks are running the most current firmware. I'll send a gift card to your favorite coffee house if you can solve this mystery.  Thanks!

And in this configuration i can have all three monitors working (laptop display + 2 external) Obviously i want to have them both connected on the docking station and use it properly. Thanks in advance for any solutions / suggestions. Dean

Hi.I'm using my X1 Yoga with a Onelink+ docking station and 2 external monitors on Display Port. The description of the docking station states that there can be up to 3 monitors including the system display. My X1 Yoga is always closed when I'm at home so that I'm just using the external monitors whereas 1 of them acts as the system display.In this case, could I attach a third external monitor to the VGA port of the docking station? Many thanks in advance.

Hi, Everyone. Got me a nice little x270 to replace my old x201.  Happy enough with the machine, but getting it connected to my accessories (monitor, keyb, mouse, ethernet) is a bit of a chore. This machine appears to have a "proper" dock port on the bottom.  Is there a compatible ultradock available for the model 20HN x270?  By proper - I mean, Not USB.  A nice dock I can simply drop the machine into when I'm at the home office.. Thanks!

Hi,
 
The way I read the X1YG1 base specs it supports two independent monitors.  Apologies, but I can't quite parse your post.  Does "apart from laptop screen" mean that you want 3 monitors total, or two and the laptops's display is off?
 
supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort;supports dual independent displays;

My Yoga 11e will suddenly not connect to any monitors (including the one it's been connected to for a year). The display settings consistently show "Didn't detect another display".YES I HAVE ALREADY GONE THOUGH ALL THE SIMILAR POSTS ON THE FORUM. * Yes, I have already tested the monitors and cables to verify they work.* Yes, I have already tested it with different monitors.* Yes, I have updated all my drivers.* Yes, I have used the Lenovo update software.* Yes, I have already removed the graphics driver and reinstalled it.* Yes, I have already done Windows troubleshooting - including reinstalling Windows. Based on the Lenovo website, there seems to be no way to actually speak to any sort of tech support, so I'm stuck resorting to this. Is there anything else I can try BESIDES THE ABOVE that might work, or should I just chuck this computer in the garbage?

Hello all, As the Yoga 720 15'' has only one Thunderbolt port, with no other ports for connecting more displays, I'm looking for a solution for connecting two monitors through this single port. The problem is that the Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapters do not seem to be working on this laptop for some reason according to threads on this forum. (although it has the appropriate hardware I suppose?)I saw a solution using the Lenovo Thunderbolt Dock, but it's quite expensive... I thought to myself: suppose I have two monitors that supported DisplayPort daisy chaining, could I use this ability and connect them to the laptop? Connecting one monitor directly to the laptop, and then connecting the other monitor to the first one using daisy chaining. Like so:Yoga -> Thunderbolt to DispalyPort adapter -> Monitor 1 -> DisplayPort -> Monitor 2.  I couldn't find any info about this method (only that it is possible on the XPS 15 which also has Thunderbot with two lanes only...)  Have someone already tried this method? Or could try it? (pretty please... )Or could at least tell me if it is possible? I'm really looking forward to buying this laptop and this is the main reason that stops me...  Note: I am aware about the bandwith limitations. I plan to use only two 2K displays. Thank you!

Unfortunately, your system has OneLink+ dock connector and the dock which you have to use is ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (40A40090SA)
And there is no such Adapter/cable to convert OneLink+dock - OneLink Dock.
 
I hope the above information helped you.

When the ethernet adapter is plugged in I am able to use ethernet. So, the problem only exists when plugged into the dock. I looked through the BIOS but didn't see too much in the way of USB configuration changes. Also, in device manager the Onelink+ dock has a yeild sign and says cannot find the driver. I have tried to install the driver from OEM and it says the driver is already up to date.

About a week ago I received my X1 Yoga (OLED; Type 20FQ, 20FR) and the OneLink+ dock (with 2 Displayports). I have 2 Dell P2715Q UHD (technically UHD but putting 4k here as a search term) monitors on my desk, with displayport and HDMI input options. Drivers on the laptop are up to date (as of 22-Jul-2016) with Windows 10. So, for those curious, these are the resolutions I can acheive. Via OneLink+ dock:1 UHD screen (via Displayport on dock; Displayport and HDMI on laptop are disabled) + laptop display (WQHD)No matter what I try, I can't get both UHD screens running at the same time, from the Displayports on the dock. This seem to be because the ports detect both screens as UHD and simply disable display to one of them. (I can 'see' the screen in the display settings, it's just I can only turn on one at a time.) Note a Displayport-to-HDMI adapter in one of the OneLink+ ports works but does not change the number of screens situation. From the laptop directly:2 UHD and internal display (WQHD) work fine - i.e. all 3 screens at native resolution.Note the Intel driver shows the UHD via Displayport as 60p and the UHD via HDMI as 29p, which works well for me. (If I set the HDMI to 30p it sets the UHD to 59p... go figure.) Internal WQHD shows as 60p. So... given the OneLink+ dock seems to disable funcionality of the inbuilt graphics chipset, I've reverted back to plugging my screens into the laptop directly (and a USB hub for 'things' and ethernet).

Hello everyone,  I would like to connect 3 external monitors to Yoga 260. I found out that conection of 3 external displays is feasible. It is associated with turning off the native LCD, whcich is OK for me. I would like to use ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (40A40090XX). The docking station has 2 DP and 1 VGA. The issue is I'd rather use 2 DP from docking station and one DP which is on board Yoga instead of VGA. Is such configuration possible? I would like to figure it out before I will buy the station. I've found document: https://support.lenovo.com/uu/en/documents/pd029622 , but there is nothing on using docking stations' DP and native DP in one configuration, simultaneously. Whether it is because on board DP will be disabled? The alternative is MST (eg. http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/multi-stream-transport-mst-hub.html). Both devices are at a comparable price, and if I had confidence that the docking station will work with onboard DP simultaneously, I would choose it.  Thank you in advance, best regardsM

Since no one has replied, I would like close this discussion.  Still someone might benefit for the information, that: - I have purchased and tested ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock- it works with 3 external monitors using 2 DP from docking station and one mini-DP from Yoga itself- working configuration is as follows: 2 displays are connected to OneLink+ Dock with one active DP to DVI converter, one passive DP to DVI converter and the last one (Yogas? port) with active mini-DP to DVI converter- I didn?t try to use for example 2 or 3 passive DP to DVI converters (but I guess that 2 should do the job, but 3 will probably won?t work)- when OneLink+ Dock is attached, the HDMI port in Yoga is not working!

I could not connect via Ethernet using the TPY (Win 8.1) and Onelink Dock (basic).  With all updated software, the TPY kept trying to connect to the USB3-ethernet in the Dock but could not start the hardware. I received a USB device not recognized which cycled during a session and seemed to screw up other parts of the system. Thinking it was a driver issue I uninstalled all the ASIX drivers and removed all the driver packages associated with the ASIX AX88179 and AX88178 controller   (see:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730875.aspx  ). Then ran Windows update which downloaded yet another ASIX package. I downloaded both the Win 7 and Win 8 driver packages from ASIX, unzipped and looked these over.  I modified the *.inf files and deleted all the non-english segments with asian or Russian characters at the end of the file leaving only the English segment and saved these on the C: drive.  (http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131) I reloaded the OneLink drivers from Lenovo.  Ethernet not recognized.From Device Manager,  I tried to update the Ethernet controller driver to the new downloaded, modified Win 8 driver and received the message that the driver was the current driver so it would not update. Instead, I had DM browse for the Windows 7 driver, and loaded that.  Ethernet not recognized. Then I had DM browse for the modified Windows 8 driver.  Thi...

A:One Onelink dock Thinkpad Yoga problem solved.

Wow, glad that you found a solution! Hope you donīt mind if I ask a few questions, just so that I understand better what to do? 1. Would you mind providing a little more info on what you exaclty removed in the Win 8 .inf driver file from Asix? 2. When you mention īDM loaded the modified driverī, I take it you mean the modified Asix inf driver, not the one you downloaded from Lenovo?3. In your estimation, is the USD2 dongle step required?thanks again.cheers,Olof

Hi. I have an older external monitor with touch screen functionality that works over USB. Whenever the USB is connected to the OneLink+ dock, my X1 Yoga gets stuck at the "Lenovo" splash screen on red background and doesn't proceed to boot. Booting and the touch screen both work fine when I plug in either the USB or the whole dock after boot. I know other users have had this issue, but it seems upgrading the firmware fixed it for them, which didn't work for me (firmware V2.33.000). Anything else I could try?

I have an X1 Yoga with a OneLink+ Dock. When the system goes to sleep, it won't wake. I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds to completely power off the X1, then restart it. I never have an issue when the OneLink+ is not connected. I updated the OneLink+'s firmware and all the drivers on the X1, but the problem remains. Anyone know how to fix this issue?

My Onelink Plus dock behaves very strangely, I cannot use the Ethernet port reliably:I bought recently a Thinkpad Yoga 460 ? after my previous Thinkpad ? and an Onelink plus dock. After docking I have to disconnect and reconnect all cables from/to the dock to make the Ethernet work.After that it works great for a period, but sometimes it loses the connection. I have to unplug again all the cables and reconnect them to make it work. To the dock I attached the following: USB keyboard, mouse, external drive, DisplayPort cable (with DP to DVI adapter) and the Ethernet cable. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit (ver. 1607) from a clean install. Every device in the Device Manager seems to be OK, even the ThinkPad OneLink Plus Dock Ethernet.I have the latest software and firmware.Lenovo Companion cannot find new updatesI have updated the BIOS to ver 1.46.I have also updated the Onelink plus dock firmware (Version: 2.33.000). Any idea? This way the dock is useless.

Hi. When I either connect my X1 Yoga after boot to the Onelink+ Dock OR connect before and boot with open Yoga and close it afterwards, it sets the correct screen resolution on my external monitor automatically. When it boots closed and with connected dock, the resolution is so wrong texts on screen are infact indecipherable which makes it very hard and annoying to find the correct setting. Is there a way to fix the screen resolution whenever the dock is connected? I use VGA at the moment to connect the monitor to the dock, but will soon buy a DisplayPort-to-HDMI-cable.

Hi community, I've a very annoying problem with my X1 Yoga. I'm using the OneLink+ Dock at the office connected to two 27 inch displays. When setting up everything it worked pretty well. Yesterday i left my desk for a few minutes. All displays went to standby which is fine. When waking up the machine one external display stayed in standby mode. I tried everything I can think of:- disconnecting the display from power and reconnect it- disconnect the display port and reconnect it- change the display port cable (length should be no issue since it's 1m)- switching display ports at the dock between displays- removing the display in the device manger and detect it again- restart the computer- shutdown the computer, pull every power cable and put everything back together- change the OneLink+ Dock ... nothing helped. What's strange: the internal and the working external display are shown as "PnP-Monitor" and the display not working is shown as "Digital-Flatscreen (640x480 60Hz)" In the Intel HD Graphic application I can see the display but can't change anything about it. I can move it around from left to middle to right position and back. Still I can't change the resolution nor turn the display back on. Yesterday i changed the non-working display with another one of the same kind and it worked again. Today the same happend to the other display that worked all the time. The displays are working on other machines so they're not broken. I have another ... Read more

Dear all,

I just received my new Thinkpad X1 Yoga, brand new, with a dock OneLink+

Both are running fine. But it is impossible to start the PC when the dock is connected: The screen freeze at the red square LENOVO display from the Bios, windows 10 pro doesn't start.

I have to disconnect the dock, et relaunch the PC to enable a normal start. After the start, I can reconnect the dock.

I updated all drivers, flashed the bios, latest FW of the dock and even resetted Windows, but without success.

Lenovo support wants to change the laptop (!), it's brand new!

I thought maybe one of the topgun member of this community might have a better idea.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Elwood
