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!

I have a ThinkPad E550 laptop connected to two Acer V246HL monitors via a ThinkPad OneLink Pro dock. One monitor is connected via DVI/HDMI to the dock and the other connected either via VGA or DVI/HDMI directly into the laptop.  When both are connected via DVI/HDMI only one monitor will be detected. When one is connected via VGA both monitors are detected, however the one connected via VGA will flicker or blink off and on. Disconnecting the ThinkPad dock solves this issue. I have tried the following:Uninstalled and reinstalled graphics driversUpdated dock firmwareRun updates on graphics driversChecked different cablesChecked different monitorsChecked different dockChecked different laptopRun Lenovo VGA fix The Lenovo VGA fix would not complete and ended up in error loop. After advice from the internet I unplugged the dock and tried again, but failed. I then unplugged everything but the VGA cable and tried again, but failed. I unplugged all peripherals and tried again, but still failed. Errors include "Invalid AUX device" and"Enable Aux2 Reg Failed".Finally I redownloaded the fix, unblocked everything before unzipping then ran as Administrator, however it all still failed. Any other advice? I can run off battery for a while but not for a full working day.

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'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-...

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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?

Having trouble here would be super grateful for your help. I connected one external monitor to this alptop but failed in connecting a second monitor to it. 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 Yoga 920. When I connect a single Dell Monitor through a USB-C to HDMI adapter from j5create, the screen appears to be the same as I swap monitors in and out. However, when I used a j5create adapter to plug two of the same Dell monitors in, they're is a visual difference between the two. I'm not familar enough to know if it's color/contrast/brightness/etc, but am confused as to why two of the exact same monitors would require me to set up a custom color profile to work. Shouldn't it be as straight foward as plugging the identical monitors in and expecting the same visual result between the two?

Hello, i have some issues with the display of my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260. It shows some yellow spots on the display, especially in the lower corners. I have already contacted the Lenovo Support Team concerning warranty. But Lenovo claims, that my Laptop is no longer covered by the warranty, because i have removed the lamination sheet of the display and replaced it by another one. So now i want to exchange the display on my own. Is it possible to order a display without any further services, so that i can do the exchange of my display by my self? I haven´t found any website (including Lenovo) that offers the display seperately without any installation service. So i just want to have the spare part. I got the following Model:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 with a Full HD DisplayType: 20FES00000 I would be grateful for any help.

A:Where can i find a replacement display for my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260?

Good Morning, I have a strage problem:When the power adapter is plugged in, the indicator light is orange. The Windows battery symbol in the task bar is animated as charging. When I hover the mouse over it, it says "charging". The Problem is: It isn't charging at all.Now the strage part: If I plug the same cable into my OneLink+ adapter and connect the OneLink with my computer it is actually charging.The problem could be caused by the ThinkPad BIOS Update - 7 (V.1.21.1.14) I did a few days ago. I'm not sure though and I have no idea how to undo the update. Configuration:ThinkPad X1 Yoga Type 20FQ, 20FR.Windows 10 Pro (newest version (KB3206632))Ask me, if you need more info.Odiously neither the power adapter nor the battery are causing the problem.  Kind regards B.

When I am at work I plug my Thinkpad Yoga into the Onelink Pro to connect all the peripherals, inlcuding mouse, keyboard, printer, and two monitors. The Onelink Pro also has my ethernet connection to the office network. I have had this setup for 2 1/2 years and it has always worked great. This morning, however, when I connected to the Onelink everything worked normally except the ethernet network connection. I could not connect to my office network, and I got messages like "Cannot find a valid network"; so I ran the Lenovo diagnostics. It told me there was an invalid IP configuration. I have unplugged and reset both the Onelink and the computer; but nothing had fixed the problem. I have also checked for the latest drivers, and everything seems to be up to date. Does anyone have any suggestions to get me reconnected to my ethernet network, or is my Onelink starting to go bad?

This only happens when the laptop charger is plugged in, if it is not plugged in the display is detected and works properly.

Intel i5 2450m

4GB ram

Intel HD 4000 graphics.

Unsure what other info could/should be provided.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad does not detect external VGA display when charging.

I still need help with this. If any other information is needed please let me know and I will do my best to provide it.

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

I am thinking of buying an X1 Yoga, but am a bit concerned about the lack of ethernet port. I am looking for feedback on the OneLink+ to RJ45 adapter - Lenovo part #4X90K06975. This is the adapter with just the ethernet port - no other ports. I have found some feedback on the docking station, and the adapter with more ports.., but I am interested in the ethernet-only adapter. Does it work well? I've read about a variety of issues with the other adapter and the docking station. one thing that concerns me a bit about the adapter is that the OneLink "plug" looks like it sticks out a lot from the side of the laptop - is it the kind of thing that can easily get dislodged, or broken.., or worse yet.., damage the port in the laptop? This laptop will occasionally be used in a bumpy environment. I see that i also have the option of a USB-Ethernet adapter, but I would rather leave my USB ports free for other devices - connectig to instruments is one of the main jobs for this laptop. Additionally, I assume that the USB-ethernet adapter will need a driver, and i am worried about driver conflicts with the drivers for the instruments. Presumably, the OneLink to RJ45 adapter does not need a driver - is that corect? Thanks for any help

I current own an x1 carbon gen2 wqhd touchscreen device and two thinkpad onelink pro docks to facilitate quick desktop environment docking in two different locations. I'm looking at upgrading to the new x1 yoga 2nd [ or 1st ] generation wqhd touchscreen replacement solutions. Looking at one of the video reviews it seems like the docking port on them is not the appx inch wide connector a onlink pro dock has on the end of its cable. Does the x1 yoga 2nd [ and 1st ] generation device work with thinkpad onelink pro dock?

A:does x1 yoga 2nd [ & 1st ] gen work with thinkpad onelink pro dock

Hi myusrn,Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.
 
ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock is not compatible with ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd gen as Onelink+ connector is missing. 
I hope the above information helped you.

I am having a problem with my ThinkPad Yoga in combination with OneLink Pro, closed lid, attached DVI monitor and a logitech mouse. The ThinkPad is running preinstalled Windows 8.1. I did recover it to factory state few times, that doesn't solve following problem: If attached to the OneLink Pro, the cursor jumps from time to time to the bottom right corner of screen. While doing so it also making a click, so icons in taskbar are activated. That happens sporadically, but in overall like once per hour. It does not happen if I let the lid opened.

A:ThinkPad Yoga + OneLink Pro = jumping cursor

I also have seen think pad yogas with one link docs do this.More rubbish from lenovo.

Hi all, We have a Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK and a Samsung LED monitor (tried with other monitor too) connected with hdmi cable. After installed the graphic drivers the external display worked properly for 2-3 weeks. But then it became unseen for the notebook. I've reinstalled the driver and it worked again for 2-3 weeks. Last time I've installed the updated driver but the last week the problem appeared again. As usual I've installed the driver and after the 3rd restart it works again, but I don't know how long. Have You any idea what's wrong here? Thank You in advance,Zoltán
