Lenovo B / G Series :: B570 Display Fails After Dual Monitor Display
Aug 6, 2014
After running my B570 (1068) with an extended display, the unit went into hibernation. On wake-up the laptop screen is indecipherable garbage. The second display will run to show BIOS startup but then reverts to the built-in screen - which is illegible. Toggling the F3 key does not get a good screen.
I read another post suggesting this is a hardware failure. What parts have failed?
I have recently purchased a W540 and connected to my Dell u3011 30" monitor. I used the Dual Link DVI-D cable that came with the monitor and plugged it into my Ultra Dock. The maximum resolution i can get is 1920x1080? When i change over to a Display port cable i can achieve the full 2560 x 1600 resolution? Is there something i need to do in addition to achieve the full 2560x1600 resolution with the DVI-D dual link cable? I want to be able to connect 2 laptops to the one monitor and only have 1 display port input so i need to be able to use the DVI cable on the 2nd machine while still achieving 2560x1600 resolution.
I have a X230 (model 2357G) with a type 4338 dock. I'm currently running dual 1920x108 monitors via the dual DVI ports in the dock. But I wonder if the dual Displayports in the dock can handle something with a higher resolution like dual 3840x2160 monitors ?
When I connect my external monitor (ASUS PA248) to my W520, the audio disappears. When I disconnect it, the audio returns. This seems a bizarre link between audio and video, but there it is. Note that the PA248 does NOT have built-in speakers.
I just purchased these 2 new dual monitors whose input connectors only come in HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort. I'm using a X230 with a Ultrabase 3 and I can't seem to get the 2nd monitor up and working... My first one is being used through the displayport direclty on my laptop (left side).
Is it not possible to get both monitors using a combination of these cables? Would buying a converter (HDMI or displayport --> VGA) solve the problem?
The monitor on my HP Pavilion dv9830us laptop has not been working for some time and I have had to use an external CRT monitor for my display. A couple nights ago, my operating system (Ubuntu Linux 10.04) failed to load and because I can't get video feed to my external monitor until the video drivers on Ubuntu loads, I am unable to run Ubuntu's repair feature and the beginning of boot.
Is there a way I can get my laptop to use my external monitor at all times, even at the BIOS screen? Is there a setting in BIOS for this?
My lenovo B570 is 1month old, when i turn it on it hangs before the user account appears.. its stucked and just saying "Please wait" then i need to turn it off and turn on and on again till it works. Then sometimes when i shut down its also stucked on "Shutting down" I already tried reformatting and its still the same.
I would like to know if the HDMI port on my B570 laptop is an input or an output port. I would like to use my laptop to play games from my ps3 three system so that the tv can be used by another member of my family.
I had to reisntall the factory default software to original. The problem is the Wifi and bluetooth drivers do not install. I tried installing several versions from the lenovo download site but i either get "No Matched Wireless or nothing depending on which one I try to install.
The Laptop is a Lenovo B570, Model Name 1068. Running Windows 7 64 bit.
I have a Lenovo L440 laptop with a think pad pro dock. The HDD is encrypted with TrueCrypt and needs a password before windows will boot. The laptop will not display out to the monitor attached to the dock before windows loads. I have changed the bios setting Config > Display > Boot Display Device, as well as all the other display options, but it does not make a difference. I have tried with a VGA cable and a DVI cable and neither works. I have tried with 2 different L440s and 2 docking stations with the same problem occuring on both. I have successfully used a Lenovo L540 laptop with the same model of docking station. I have also updated to the most current bios version.
I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if the L440 model simply does not support this function?
I am an HP DV6-6c38TX running Windows 7 x64. I also have VMWare Workstation 10 installed.
Drivers installed for the webcam are :
1) running in normal Windows 7 x64 base machine (not VMWare)
a) after booting the laptop I can use the webcam b) I run an app to capture an image and it works fine. I then close the app. c) I open Skype and use the webcam and then Exit Skype. d) I open the app again and it says - could not detect webcam device (assuming this comes from the app) f) I open Skype and check the webcam and it works. I stop the webcam (Skype still running) g) I start the app again and now the webcam works h) I Quit Skype, runthe app again, and it now says - could not detect webcam device
That is just for the Laptop running as is.
now in VMWare, this is worse.
a) I attach the Webcam b) I run the same app, but it says - could not detect webcam device c) I close VWMare d) Now no app detects the webcam, not the app, not Skype. e) I check the Device Manager and in fact the webcam now does not even appear in the Dedvice Manager...
A few weeks ago I cracked my glossy 1366x768 display on my Envy DV6 7227SA (product number C4V06EA#ABU). I have found a replacement online (part number 682089-001) but I was wondering if I could replace it with a matte 1920x1080 display (Part number 682090-001). I'm running Windows 8 64 bit
EDIT: This is the part I currently have in my notebook (broken) - [URL] ....
And this is what I'm wanting to replace it with - [URL] .....
I have Thinkpad Edge E330 bought this July, with win8 downgraded to win7. It recently started a problem where the laptop's own display doesn't display anything (just blank) if I don't have external display connected. The external display doesn't have be in use, just connected, and E330's own display works fine. If I disconnect the external display, the E330's own display goes blank also. It doesn't matter what display setting I have.Currently I'm not able to use my E330 as a laptop at all.
I purchased this Ideapad Z50-70 laptop two days back. It was DOS based so I had to install Windows 8.1 OS myself. After installing the OS, I installed all the drivers for this laptop.
The display of the laptop is set to Full HD resolution i.e. 1920*1080. However, it doesn't look as sharp and crips as a normal HD display should be. The text and other things looks blurred. Also, the contrast of the screen doesn't seem well. Though the resolution is set to Full HD, I'm not feeling the quality smoothness and sharpness of the full HD display.
I have an external display and I want to be able to shut down the laptop display when I'm using the external one. How do I do this? Is there a setting that can automaticly switch off laptop display when an external display is connected?
Can I close down my laptop's display while I'm working with an external display, keyboard and mouse?
On my Nvidia Control Panel I only have 3 options: Adjust image setings with preview, Manage 3D setings and Set PsysX Configuration. Shouldn't I have a lot more options given by the Nvidia driver?
I bought a new lenovo Z50-70 this month. Is is having i5 processor, 1tb hdd, 4gb ram. I really like this lappy but i am dissatisfied with the display. It is having a full hd display but it is blinking only when running on battery.I also dont know whether others facing the same issue or not.
I have a VGN-AR550U laptop. According to the property page for the Display adapter it is: NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT. I want to be able to run a Powerpoint presentation where the slides are being shown on a big screen and the notes are shown on the laptop screen. I understand this has to be done thru a dual monitor type of setup. Can I test this without actually hooking up the big screen or does it automatically go into a dual monitor mode when you plug in the second monitory. When I select presenter view it says I don't have a second monitor.
My Y500 (one of the older models) has some weird display issues for some time now. When I try to adjust the screen angle, some horizontal green lines appear randomly on my screen. Some other parts also have vertical magenta lines. Then I have to try several angles until I find a position where the display doesn't show any problems. This happens almost every time when I open the display and turn it on. Sometimes it is less of a problem and sometimes more. If I don't move the laptop or the screen the problem does not show up. My drivers should all be up to date and I have Windows 8.1.
I am planning to get 2x 23inch monitors 1920x1200. So now here is the situation. I want to connect both of these to my sony vaio z. I have found solutions such as the Matrox DualHead2Go box and what not.. But i was wondering if i can get the sony z docking station and use that for dual output. Unlike some other threads that i've read my situation would be to plug the hdmi on the laptop to monitor1 and the dvi from the docking station to monitor 2.
Well after i reformat my pc the gray window that shows after you touch one of the five touch sensitive button doesn't show.same goes when you Fn+F5 which supposed to show WLAN and bluetooth card settings. What application or something i have to install for this?
I'm trying to set up the laptop to use an external monitor via HDMI. I tried a setting but it didn't work. However the laptop screen went blank and now I can't undo the changes.
On reboot, the screen works until the Window splash screen then it goes blank as the computer continues to boot up. Booting into safe mode works, but I can't access the graphics card properties from there.
Tried unplugging the HDMI cable, but doesn't work.
How can I bring back the default display settings without doing a hard reset? (It's not my own computer)....
