Issue#1204: Lenovo - G50 HDMI Not working for 2d External Monitor

  • I have a Lenovo G50 running Win8 32bit. I have two external monitors both Asus with VGA ports.


    I successfully configured one of the monitors to the VGA port.


    However I have not been able to successfully get my 2nd external monitor connected using the HDMI port. I have a VGA to HDMI adapter for the monitor but it's not working.


    To rule out any issue with the 2nd monitor, I was able to get it to work by disconnecting the VGA cable from the first monitor and connecting it to the 2nd monitor. But again, no luck using the HDMI port with a VGA to HDMI adapter.


    So I'm fresh out of ideas. Had anyone been able to resolve this successfully with this setup? And if so, how? Thanks in advance!

    Display issue in Lenovo X1 CarbonDisplay non touch. Native resolution 2560x1440 on ci7 8GB 256GB SSD.When I wake the laptop from sleep/power on/restart it keeps happening for around 5 -10 mins then screen goes to normal.Sometimes screen stays dark but when I move the screen to and fro at different angles at some point display starts working.Though on external display it works fine.Now I would like to ask if any one who has the Idea that? 1. Is it a BAD/loose connection between display cable & mother board or between cable and back side of LCD panel?2. Is it a bad cable itself?3. Is it an issue of faulty LCD panel? or 4. Is it a bad motherboard? Please watch the video for exact issue.

  • Issue#121028: Lenovo - Yoga 2 Pro external monitor not working after Win 10 update

    Ever since updating to Windows 10, my Yoga 2 Pro (model name 20266, Mfg Date 14/08/2014) is unable to connect to an external monitor. Tried a few TVs and a projector using the micro HDMI port. I've connected other computers to each of the monitors so I know they work. I understand how to use WIndows intimately (35 year old software engineer at Google, been using WIndows 20+ years), trust me, this is not a case of me forgetting to use Windows key + P or anything like that. The mirco HDMI port itself (physically) is fine and was working great until the day I downloaded Windows 10. So unless it happened to spontaneously stop working on the exact same day i upgraded to WIndows 10, it's not a hardware issue either. The issue is that the external monitor is simply not detected, no matter my attempts to play with the display options.I have also run the Intel driver update utilty, but it refuses to update the driver because it says it's detected manufacturer drivers and tells me I should

  • Issue#172117: Geforce - GTX 960m Laptop - Some Games Not Displaying on External HDMI Monitor - Driver Issue?

    Unless there is a fix I am unaware of, I'd like opinions on this please. I have the Dell Inspiron 7559 mid-range gaming laptop with i7 6700HQ processor, and NVidia GTX 960m 4GB graphics card - Windows 10 64 bit. When I connect an external display via the HDMI port, some games I try will not display on that external display. It is either the Intel 530 driver causing this problem, or the NVidia. As the GTX 960m supports and uses NVidia Optimus, in order to set up multiple displays, I have to go through the Intel HD driver control panel to output to my external monitor. The NVidia control panel does not show any options to arrange displays, or any options at all apart from only showing options for 3D settings. NVidia Optimus uses the Intel dialogue boxes to accomplish this task (I think?). Is there a fix for this? Is it a currently known bug? One such game is Resident Evil 0 HD. I can hear sound, but can't see a thing. Getting rather annoyed now as I quite liked the idea of having

    Dear all, I have the W520 from Lenovo with Ubuntu 14.04, and would like to use it with an external monitor from Dell (U2515H). I connected the monitor through the display port with the laptop. I am using the nvidia-driver and I activated the "discrete" option in the bios ( I do not really care about optimus since I am using the laptop as a stationary workstation). In the "nvidia-settings" the monitor does get recognized and I can activate and deactivate the monitor. The issue is that the monitor always stays black? Is there somebody who could help me with how to approach this issue. I also attached some screenshots of the nvidia-settings and the additional drivers menu. Thanks a lot. f-p Attachments: .Screenshot from 2016-03-19 22:28:14.jpgScreenshot from 2016-03-19 22:26:57.jpg FYI: I also posted this question in some other forum.

  • Issue#459344: Lenovo - Ideapad Z580 - External monitor stopped working

    I've been running this Z580 for a year or so, and updated to Windows 10 a couple of months ago. Both the laptop display and an external monitor (HPw1907 vga) have been working fine. The other day, the external monitor just stopped working.   I check the device manager and the Intel HD Graphics 4000 display adapter is disabled, due to a Code 43. I have tried rolling back to an earlier restore point, I've uninstalled and reinstalled several versions of the Intel graphics adapter, up through the current compatible one. The most recent display adapter driver from Intel is apparently not hardware compatible with this adapter. The funny thing, is that the driver wants to work! On booting, while the black and white Lenovo splash screen is displayed, with the little circular Windows logo circling around, I can move the cursor back and forth between monitors. As soon as the screen turns blue (I assume with Windows drivers loading) the external monitor blanks out and I'm back

    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

    Hello, I recently bought the Ultra Dock 90 for my T450s.  I have one external monitor currently connected through the dock.  When I push the power button on the docking station (laptop lid closed) to turn on the computer, the computer turns on, but the external monitor does not engage.  When I lift the laptop lid, there is no image on the laptop screen either.  The laptop is on, but does not respond to any key stokes on the actual laptop.  I then have to do a hard reboot using the power button on the laptop. If I initially power the laptop by lifting the lid and hitting the laptop power button, the compter boots and my external screen works.  I can then close the laptop lid and everything is fine. I know the power button on the dock should power the computer and external monitor on.  I am guessing there is a simple solution to resolve this, but I am not a computer person and need help. One thing to note - when I lift the lid a

    Hi,My Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop is out of warranty by now, but I'm trying to get the issue fixed via a claim with my credit card company.  After turning on the laptop, the screen goes black while the backlit keyboard remains.  Touching the screen gives a vibration.  I connected the laptop to an external monitor via the HDMI out and found out the laptop is working so it's the screen having an issue.  I tried searching online and it looks like I'm not the only person having this issue; it's fairly common.Question -- How much would it cost to repair (or replace the screen if it's not repairable)?Thank you.

    For work I connect my laptop directly to a second monitor and choose the "extend screen option" to allow use of two monitors. This works fine until I unhook from the external monitor. Then my laptop screen goes blank and I am unable to use the laptop.  Rebooting the laptop does not correct the issue. The fn options to switch between projector modes does not correct the issue. The windows+P option does not correct the issue.

  • Issue#35879: HP - HDMI attached monitor not working correctly

    I just bought this 15t from Amazon and attached it to my ViewSonic VA2012wb monitor via the HDMI ports.  The second monitor appears to display correctly and I am able to extend my first monitor, but when I try to do something in the second monitor, it starts acting oddly. Instead of full screen, it shows the target view in about 2/3 the area of the full screen (which still shows underneath). If it is a video playing the top, smaller screen seems to be trying to show the video, but the full screen also trys to display the video in sporadic fashion. The clicks of the mouse sometimes seem to be on target and other times it just misses. I have previously had no trouble with this monitor when attached via the vga port.

    About a week ago, I tried connecting my Lenovo Flex 2 15 (purchased December 2014) to a Vizio TV via HDMI cable, but I couldn't get it to display my screen to the TV. I tried 3 different HDMI cables, ran through the F10 display options. I also updated drivers and now my laptop will not connect to my HP Compaq external monitor (via HDMI to VGI adapter). My laptop doesn't seem to even acknowledge that I connected either the monitor or TV to it.  Has anyone else had this problem? I have updated it from Windows 8 to Windows 10 maybe a month ago, but haven't had problems connecting it to my external monitor until last week. Is there a driver issue that I'm not aware of?

I am then able to plug the monitor back in and have the login screen appear on the external monitor. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Intel VGA graphics driver, but that did not fix the problem. Any ideas?

  • Issue#53149: Lenovo - ThinkPad P70 Workstation Dock with HDMI monitor blinks intermittently

    This is all brand new kit.  The P70 works perfectly and so does the external monitor when I plug the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the P70.  However, if I connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the Dock and then dock the P70, the external monitor blinks (black screen) every 5 to 30 seconds or so.  The blink is about 0.5  to 1 second in duration.  I have found posts from 2013 regarding a similar problem on the Thinkpad Ultra Dock which was resolved with a firmware update. Is there a resolution to this issue or a firmware update available?  If not I will have to return the dock as there is no point in having it if I cannot use a multiple monitor configuration when docked. Any help gratefully received. Andy

  • Issue#62519: Lenovo - P50 model 2nd external screen not working properly

    Hello, I have the P50 as a workstation and I'm running two external monitors (DELL U2412M) behind it. The mini DP-DP runs well, but the second monitor with HDMI-DVI (monitor doesn't have HDMI) starts to work if I go to BIOS and make changes to Display settings (from hybrid to standard or something). So I don't use the integrated Intel graphics card. It works untill I shut down, also sleep will make it "die".  I also tried to use HDMI - DP between my second monitor, but then it doesn't work at all. My colleague also has the same machine, but he has slightly newer monitors that have HDMI connection and he has the same issue. The second monitor, that gets the signal from P50's HDMI will die after sleep or shut down. I'm running windows 10 on it and I had to change my nVidia driver to 354.56. Combination of Solidworks 2016 with windows 10 is so new that it doesn't seem to support most of the graphics drivers. My current driver is a bit olde

    Hello! I have a P50 (TopSeller 20EN0013US) and dual boot Windows 10 Pro and UbuntuGnome 15.10 with it. I have been having an issue connecting external displays via the laptop's mini-DisplayPort connector. When I plug in an external display while the machine is running, the internal display will begin turning on and off every second, until the external display is disconnected. The external display never turns on. I have the bios set to use dedicated graphics only. I am using the binary Nvidia driver, version 352.63, and have also tried the 352.79, 358.xx, and 361.xx (from the nvidia-drivers ppa) which all have the same issue. I am using the kernel version, which is the stock 15.10 ubuntu kernel. The issue does not occur under Windows 10 Pro. I have been able to work around the issue by setting the mini-Displayport to the primary display device (so it is visible at boot, and ends up being used for the console framebuffer), which then allows me to switch to the console

    Hi, I just got my new Lenovo P50 a few days ago, and so far it was a great experience.The only thing that doesn't work is the HDMI connector. I understand the HDML is connected directly to the NVIDIA GPU. I assumed it will work when setting the BIOS to discrete graphics, but that didn't help as well.Steps I took  (The HDMI cable is, of course, connected, and "Project" settings (Fn F7 or Windows-P) is set to "extend")1) Update NVIDIA drivers2) Use NVIDIA drivers recommended by lenovo3) Reduce resolution to HD and Full HD (the projector I am connecting supports both resolutions)4) many many restarts  I have noticed another thing - In the BIOS there is a way to configue the device to which the boot screen will be sent to. The options are "ThinkPad Display", "DisplayPort" and "Display On Dock". But the documentation on the right side is also saying there SHOULD be an Option "HDMI". Which is not there. When looking into the NVIDIA native system information, it shows 1 na

    I have a 3 month old Lenovo Edge 2 1580. The video card is listed as Intel(R) HD Graphics 520, which is shown to be up to date and working properly. However, my computer also has the Nvidia Geforce card, so I'm not sure which is supposed to be using.  When I try to connect an external monitor, the laptop does not detect it. I've tryied multiple monitors using just HDMI or VGA-to-HDMI. Both setups worked fine for the past few months, but today, no configuration will work. Both monitors are working just fine when connected to my other laptop with the same cables. It has to be something internal to the laptop.  This happened once before, and I was able to fix it by changing the settings of the graphics card (I think). I can't remember what I did, but it involved chaning something in my laptop.  Any leads?
