Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Dual Monitor Display Resolution With DVI-D Dual Link Cable

May 18, 2014

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.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Max Resolution - X230 With Dock Dual Display Port

Oct 5, 2014

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 ?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: How To Dual Boot W540 With Windows 8.1 / 7

Oct 30, 2014

I got my W540 recently with windows 8.1 pro on it. but as all engineers worst nightmare windows 8 has hard time with engineering softwares (for my case TIA Portal for  PLC programming software which only support windows 7). so i need to have a windows 7. i prefer to keep my windows 8 and have dual boot system with windows 7 added. But i can't install windows 7. initially due to disk type (GPT), then i changed it to MBR without losing my files (which only was possible if i had deleted the recovery partition- now my recovery is on my flash drive). But there are already 4 partitions on the system (1 for C: drive and 3 for recovery and system files which came originally with the product) , how can i install a windows 7? i can't add another partition because that makes my disk a Dynamic disk. i really need windows 7 on my system ASAP.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 New Dual Monitor (no VGA)

Jul 19, 2014

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?

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?

Dell :: Dual Monitor Resolution

Jul 13, 2009

having trouble with my second monitor that I am trying to connect.

I am using a DVI to HDMI cable and inputting it into the second screen (It is an lcd tv).

Windows 7 allows me to change the resolution of both monitors seperately. i made my regular monitor the same 1920 x 1200, but no matter what resolution i make the second screen, the edges, top bottom left and right are all cut off, sort of like a cropped version of what i should be seeing .....

Apple :: What Are Mini Display Port To Dual-link Dvi Options

May 10, 2010

I have a 13.3" MBP and a HP LP3065 monitor. At times, I would like to use the monitor for more real estate. I know there is the Apple mini display port to dual-link dvi adapter. Are there any other options that I will be able to use my monitor at 2560x1600 resolution with the MBP?

The reviews for the apple adapter suck and basically all of them have flickering issues. I would hate to buy it, return it, and waste my time on something I know that has a great chance of failure.

I also have Logitech Z-5500 speakers that I would like to use with my Macbook. Would a toslink to mini-toslink cable work?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Multi Monitor Configuration

Sep 25, 2014

I have a W540 Laptop with 170W Ultra-Dock.  I have setup 3 external monitors, but can't seem to get my 3rd monitor to run at 1920x1080.  Whenever I set it to that resolution and I move a window to that monitor, the window flickers and shakes.  
 
I have my right monitor at 1920x1080 (VGA), my middle monitor at 1080x2560 (DisplayPort), and my left monitor at 1440x900 (HDMI) - this is the monitor that I can't get to work at 1920x1080.  
 
Wondering if there is a max number of pixels that the graphics card can handle?  I am using a NVIDIA Quadro K1100M 2GB graphics card.
 
I read on a review of that graphics card that it can support 4 monitors and up to 4K resolution (although not sure if it meant that all 4 monitors could be at 4K - I'm thinking not)
 
How to make this work?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Ram Upgrade With I7-3520M Dual Core?

Nov 7, 2012

I bought the i7-3520M (dual) and I looked in the manual to see what slots to use for my memory upgrade and the instructions were completely off (where the dummy stick is supposed to be and where it actually was).
 
I purchased two 8GB (Kingston) sticks to replace the 4GB that came installed.  I took out the original 4GB under the keyboard and replaced it with the new 8GB Kingston.  Everything worked great and I've been using it that way for about a week.
 
Tonight I decided to go ahead and install the other 8GB.  I assumed it would go in the bottom slot where there's a dummy stick.  I pulled out the dummy and placed my 8GB there.  Turned the laptop on and... nothing.  It wouldn't power on at all.  I took my 8GB out and put the dummy back and it worked fine.  Just to make sure I didn't get a bad stick, I replaced the one under the keyboard with my other 8GB and it worked fine there.  My question is where is my second 8GB supposed to be installed and does that one dummy stick always stay where it is?  It does have a "do not remove" graphic on it, but I thought it was only because the laptop came with one stick and if you were putting two in you would replace it.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 FaceTime HD Camera (Display) Driver Not Installed

Nov 3, 2009

My new W540 (11/10/2014) Lenovo Solution Center under the Check-up tab alerts me that the FaceTime HD Camera (Display) Driver is Not Installed.  Such as it is, the camera, a 720P HD, works just fine.  A search of resources does not uncover any comment or Driver on this issue.  So, since there is no problem as near as I can determine, should I just ignore the lack of Driver issue, and if so, what is the procedure to stop the Solution Center from alerting me to this error?  But if on the other hand I should install the Driver, where is that to be found?
 
MTM 20BG-CTOWW
 
I'm using the W540 in the Ultra Dock with video on a second monitor, an Apple monitor, using a Thunderbolt cable.  There is no Thunderbolt port in the Dock, so I use the W540 port which surprised me that it works.
 
FWIW, it is taking me a lot of time learning the location of programs and utilities having moved from my old W510 Win 7(64) setup to the W540 Win(64) 8.1 setup.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Display Brightness Keys Not Working / Audio Channel Commutation Gets Stuck

May 27, 2014

I've got 2 separate but really annoying issues with my W540 20BH:
 
- display brightness keys not working: when waking up from Hibernation mode, sometimer (really, randomly!) the display brightness keys (Fn+F5/F6) don't work.... either if the display brightness is stuck on max, min or an intermediate level...Is there a way to shut down and restart the process which commands the Fn keys?
 
- audio channel commutation gets stuck. Normal behaviour of the audio configuration is:
1) speaker volume disabled, mic disabled
2) when plugging in a 4-pin headset, headset's volume is on, headset's mic is switched on; speaker volume is still disables.
3) when unplugging the headset, speakers' volume is still 0
 
After each boot, the audio channel is at 0, but doesn't commute to the headset when plugged in! I have to open Configuration Panel, realtek properties. With this window open, unplug and re-plug the headset. Now, the volume has its normal behaviour.
 
Any better way to configure audio channels and evenments, which is able to bypass realtek's manager?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 Display Resolution Not Right After Upgrade To Windows 8.1

Nov 10, 2011

Just upgraded from Windows 8.1 preview to Windows 8.1... since then my display doesn't look right at all. Resolution seems to be set to 1920x1080... which I belive is correct.

But text, icons and windows seem bigger than they were before.
 
Also the display is lacking sharpness around text. Do I need to upgrade some drivers or something?

Dell :: M4400, E-Port Replicator, Dual-Link DVI

Nov 6, 2008

I have a Dell M4400 with nVidia 770 and I also have a Dell 3007WFP which supports 2560x1600 native resolution. Does anyone know if the M4400 will support this resolution if I dock it to an E-Port Replicator and use the DVI output of the docking station to the 3007WFP? When I looked at the Dell manual for the E-Port Replicator (and also the Plus) it didn't say if the DVI output supports dual-link.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E545 Dual Boot

Nov 7, 2014

I purchased a Edge E545 that came pre loaded with Win7 Pro 64.  I created the Recovery disks for Win7 and used the Win 8 Disks to upgrade the OS.  I have created a new NTFS partition on my hard drive and would like to install Win 7 to that partition.  I have tried to load the recovery disks to install into that partition but I have not been successful; the boot disk won't even load.  I downloaded the Win7 Pro 64 ISO to try and load it into that partition but the computer does not have the COA sticker under the battery like it's supposed to.
 
I have recovery disks that won't load at restart or cold boot and I have a perfectly good ISO that i don't have a COA to.

Dell :: 630 W/ Dual Monitor

I am trying to run dual monitors on a d630 with Intel 965 video and the laptop, after reboot, will not hold its settings.

It always wants to revert back the VGA screen as primary and ignores the second DVI monitor.

I have tried undocking and removing the dock profile so it can re-establish it but no success.
