Thinkpad Yoga 260 connecting to external Monitors ...

Q: Thinkpad Yoga 260 connecting to external Monitors ...

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 have a ThinkPad S1 yoga bought in Dec 2013. I have being using the mini hdmi to work of 1 external 1080p monitor these last few years and it has worked fine. I now want to add a new second 1440 x 2560 along side my 1080 x 1920 monitor for a dual monitor set up. (Mostly for spreadsheets, emails, web browsing etc.) I do not mind if one of these duplicates my laptop screen. I was going to get the onelink dock to enable me to do this however I am not sure if it will work. I know the resolution with dual monitors running off the dock is limited at 1200p. What I now want to do is use the mini hdmi on my laptop for one monitor and the onelink dock for the other, however I want to be sure it will work before I go and buy the monitor and dock. Alternatively I could buy an USB 3.0 to hdmi adapted to run the 1080 monitor and a usb hub for the extra usb's I will need. (I think the dock will use less processing power and would be a slicker set up so I imagine it would be better?) You?re  help would be appreciated as I have read there can be issues trying to get higher resolution monitors to work.

Connected an IOGear compact dock to the laptop's USB C. Connected monitor #1 to the dock's HDMI port.Connected an HDMI cable to monitor #2 and used an HDMI to mini display port adapter to connect to the docks mini diplay port.I used the "Extend Display" setting on the laptop.I can only get display on the laptop monitor and one of the external monitors.  I can't get the display to work on both external monitors.  Second external monitor is not detected.  Help please. I am told that a plugable usb type c docking station would work, it has two "Disply ++ Ports".  Suggestion is to use an HDMI to DP++ cable to connect to the dual external monitors. Haven't tried it yet, does anyone know whether that'll work?

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;

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!

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.

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?

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.

Hi, I'd like to add a couple of external monitors to my Yoga 2 Pro, specifically the Dell u2515h model. This has dvi and hdmi in and displays at 2560x1440. Will the micro hdmi drive 2560x1440? How would I get the second external monitor connected? I've seen some usb3 - hdmi connectors but most seem to top out at 1920x1080.  How do do I get this to work without spending a fortune on connectors- I'd rather spend the money on getting a better set of monitors.  Should i I give up on the idea of dual 2560x1440? Should I go for two u2414h monitors, which would give 1920x1080 on each screen?  Thanks, Ian Brown 

A:Yoga 2 Pro, external monitors

AFAIK the Yoga 2 Pro's built-in HDMI is version 1.4, which should be able to output 2560x1440 at 60Hz.As for a second monitor, you can look into a USB 3 to HDMI DisplayLink solution. Some of these support up to 4K. The biggest caveat with a USB solution is that the CPU will be under a fair amount of strain as it must handle the encoding of the video stream. This also means that while you can probably output 60Hz office and productivity work over the USB, any fullscreen games/videos will be very choppy.

I've set up the laptop to work with 2 external ThinkVision L171 monitors, using Windows 7 Professional. One is connected via the VGA monitor port on the laptop; the other is connected via VGA to a Lenovo/DisplayLink USB 2.0 Port Replicator (model VDK8736 -- with drivers updated).

Both monitors are working well and available when the laptop lid is closed. The issue is that after the screen saver period completes, the laptop powers down completely. I'd like it to just shut off the screen and resume on mouse movement.

The laptop is used with external monitors when it's plugged in -- and the power settings are:
Balanced profile
Display turns off after 2 hours
Screensaver starts after 10 minutes
Computer goes to sleep - Never
Hard disk off - never
Internet Explorer: Javascript Timer Frequency - Maximum
Desktop background settings : available
Wireless Adapter Settings: Max Performance
Sleep - Never. Hybrid Sleep: Off Hibernate After: Never Allow Wake Timers: Disable
USB Selective Suspend: Disabled
Intel Graphics Power Plan: Balanced
Power Buttons & Lid: Lid closed - Do nothing; Power Button - Sleep; Sleep Button - Sleep
PCI Express - Moderate Power
Multimedia - When sharing media - prevent idling to sleep; When playing video - Optimize video quality

Does anyone know why this is happening and a way to prevent it?
Thanks!

A:Thinkpad P52S Ultra Dock and 3 External Monitors

As stayed in PSREF, P52s supports up to three independent displays. Laptop's screen includes in this limit, meaning you can use two external displays at that time. When you close the lid, you can use three external displays. To use more, you'll need some sort of USB adapter to increase such a limit. Regarding other question, you can't disable Intel GPU - it's always active and it's always controls screen output. NVIDIA's dGPU can be configured to be used in selected applications, making them to work with higher performance. P52 and P72 for sure have an ability to disable Intel iGPU, giving the control of screen output to dGPU. Probably P1 and/or X1 Extreme have the same feature too.

I tried updating BIOS and Docking station, installed latest Intel and Nvidia graphics driver, power management driver.. everything.I get 4 monitors displayed in Windows display settings, but as soon as I turn on the fourth, one of the others goes dark. Somewhere I read about BIOS setting for Hybrid graphic, but I don't have such setting in BIOS. Any help would be great Thanks!

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, I have looked elsewhere at other similar posts which don't seem to have been satisfactorily answered. I want to connect two external monitors to my 520 to use in extended display mode. The first monitor is connected directly via the hdmi port on the 520 and is running as monitor 2. The second monitor is connected to the HDMI port in a Hootoo USB-C hub and card reader (model HT-UC008) which is connected to the USB-C port on the 520. The power light on the Hootoo is on but this screen is not detectable.  I have reached out to Hootoo support in case there are drivers to download - their site is pretty shabby - but would like to find out more from Lenovo on this matter. Thank you, Thomas

So I read through a few threads and haven?t seen anything overly promising so I thought I?d ask.  Im trying to help a friend who started a new job. They gave him a Yoga730 15IWL.  He has no dock for it (and I wasn?t sure if the even made one for it).  The reviews I read about some of the recents docks working with multiple monitors didn?t instillConfidence.  He wants to run 3 monitors concurrently. I see there?s an hdmi port and a believe a display port. Worst case I?d like to get him up and running with 2 if that?s easiest. I contemplated getting an hdmi splitter but I thought that would only show the same screen to multiple monitors and not split the across all three. Any guidance/suggestions welcome.  Thanks

I bought myself a Yoga 920 for my Christmas B'day and love it so far. Now I want to buy it things. I am a retired engineer, but all this new-fangled tech jargon has got me off kilter. I've been reading a lot of confusing things so I thought you guys might help me out if I ask nice. Pretty please. I want to buy my new baby a 27-inch external monitor:1) Does the 920 accept an external monitor's touch input? That would be too cool to hope for.2) Is there an external USB3 dock for the 920 hookup? Or does one have to wing it with an HDMI cable?3) What is this auto connect feature for external monitors that Win10 mentions? Does the Yoga have it and is it now standard on most modern monitors? Thank you for any info you got.

I have it connected to two external monitors via USB-C and DELL WD15 dock. Laptop screen is ON as well, so I have all 3 screens in extended mode.The problem is it runs very slow, websites open slowly and simple youtube video takes up to 50% of CPU... I have enabled "Show kernel times" and looks like most of CPU time is taken by kernel on all 4 logical cores.The laptop is running Windows 10 Pro with 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, i5-7300U CPU. How do I debug this?

I have had some trouble connecting two external monitors for my Lenovo Yoga 710. Does anyone have any idea how to do this? There is only one MINI HDMI port and two USB ports (these don't appear to support an external monitor tho)

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.

I have recently received an upgrade laptop at work. On my previous laptop (ThinkPad, unsure of model), I was able to connect one external display monitor directly to the VGA port on the laptop and an additional external diplay monitor to the ThinkPad Pro Dock station VGA port. I prefered to use these two screens with my laptop closed on the docking station, but could also open the laptop on the dock and have a third screen available. ISSUE: With my new ThinkPad (T440) there is no VGA port on the laptop. I have purchased a simple HDMI to VGA Converter Adapter - see link:https://www.amazon.ca/VicTsing-Gold-plated-Converter-Ultrabook-Devices-Black/dp/B016LVT51G/ref=sr_1_...   I am using the same ThinkPad Pro Dock station as with my previous laptop. With my new T440 I am able to work with my laptop open or closed on the docking station with one external display plugged into the docking station. I am also able to work with one external display plugged directly into my laptop using the VGA to HDMI converter adapter.  ISSUE 2: The laptop will not recognize when both screens are plugged in at the same time, but they each work when I have only one plugged in either to the dock or directly to the laptop. PLEASE HELP!! TIA

I currently have a T430 which is an absolute beast and solid as a rock. However, it is a nightmare for external monitors. I have a Lenovo LEN LS2223wC monitor and a Lenovo LT1952p monitor that I would like to use as external monitors. Both monitors run on HD 4000. I run Windows 10 operating system.  I don't need the newest model. Just something solid and dependable. If it has the option of eventually doing three monitors that would just be icing on the cake (but not required).  Does anyone have any ideas for laptops that might fit these specs as well as docks to go with them?  Thanks

Not able to get two monitors (Samsung S27E450) plugged into a ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 docking unit to work with my X1 Yoga (Gen 2).   Montiors connected to docking via DisplayPort cables.   Windows 10 shows the monitors showing up as "Generic PnP" so something is being recognized.  Tried deleting the device in Device Manager, reboot.  Not finding the drivers on the Samsung site.   Any help appreciated.
