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 ?
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 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?
I have an issue with the OneLink dock and the ethernet port. Initially it was working but after a BIOS update it now always gives me "Unknowns USB device".
I just got my hands on a i7 X1 Carbon 2 and a OneLink Pro dock and at first it all worked out as it should. After a while the "System update" prompted me that there were updates I let it run, including an updateof BIOS from 1.06 to 1.07. Now I can no longer get it to work.
Whenever i plug it in i know get: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
The SuperSpeed link to the USB device keeps going to an error state Compliance. If the device is removable, remove the device and then disable/enable from device manager to recover.
I even did a full system restore and started from the beginning...
I have a ThinkPad X240 laptop with Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 installed. Sound plays just fine from the laptop's speakers, and when I plug external speakers into the laptop's 3.5mm audio port they work just fine too. when the laptop is docked in my Ultra Dock 90W docking station and the external speakers cable is plugged into the dock's audio port, no sound is heard. If I'm playing music through the laptop's speakers, as soon as I plug a cable into the dock's audio port no sound is heard. I can still use the laptop's audio port to connect external speakers, but that defeats the object of having an audio port on the Ultra Dock.
The Ultra Dock has (I believe) the latest firmware installed (version 2.22.000) and I have the latest audio drivers installed: in Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Realtek High Definition Audio > Driver version is 22.214.171.12488 which is the latest available from Lenovo Support downloads. What do I need to do to get the Ultra Dock's audio port working? I mistakenly posted this message on the "X Series tablet ThinkPad Laptops" board.
Anyone else experience issues with the display port on the e series dock?
I've got a E6400, E4300 and E4200 that I'm using with a E Port replicator.
I'm connecting it to a dell ultrasharp U2410 monitor via display port.
Several times a day, the monitor will go blank and say there is no signal, then 10 seconds later turn back on.
Several more times a day the monitor will go into standby and say there is no signal, the only way to get it back on is to open up the laptop and press FN F8 several times to switch the outputs, and sometimes that will work, other times it won't. in that case I have to either reboot the computer, or go into the intel graphics settings, tell it to use single monitor, and use the dell digital u2410.
I've called dell support, they are useless. I've updated the video drivers, I've reloaded the computer, I've tried 3 computers (but on the same dock since I only have one docking station).
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 have recently bought ThinkPad E540 with OneLink Pro Dock, in which I have connected my LG Flatron IPS236 external display. LG's max resolution is Full HD 1920x1080, but for some reason my external display's max resolution is only 1280x1024. The display is attached to the OneLink Pro Dock's DVI port. I have both updated the graphic card's drivers and LG monitor's drivers and booted the system. I have also tried using both 75 hertz and 60 hertz refresh rates.
I am trying to do a clean install on my good, old Thinkpad X230 which came with 64-bit Windows 7 Professional. For some reason, I was not able to create a bootable media from the recovery partition. In any case, I wanted to avoid the recovery partition as I want a basic, non-bloated, and minimal install.
Hence, I downloaded a copy of 64-bit Windows 7 Professional from Microsoft/ digital river website. After performing the checksum, I used Microsoft's USB DVD Download Tool to make a bootable USB on Kingston Flash Voyager (USB 2.0; 8 GB; FAT32). BTW, just for the heck of it, I verified that it boots on my spare (and even older) Thinkpad X60 -- though it doesn't proceed when it sees that the X60 has a 32-bit microprocessor.
The relevant BIOS values and settings are as follows:
UEFI BIOS Version G2ET95WW (2.55) UEFI BIOS Date 2013-July-09 UEFI Secure Boot Off
I am posting this query after trying a number of solutions : rebooting from a USB flash drive on my Thinkpad X230. For some reason, nothing has worked and pressing F12 only shows the ATA HDD0 hard drive. Among other things, I have tried the following:
- Updated the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver using Lenovo's Thinkvantage Tools. Now it has version 126.96.36.199. Someone suggested to have at least 188.8.131.52 which is apparently available at Intel's website. I always considered downloading the device drivers from Lenovo to be kosher. Shall I download it from Intel's website?
- Disabled USB 3.0 from BIOS which made all USB ports to act as USB 2.0. Neither option works. - Tried booting from all three USB ports (of which one is USB 2.0 and two are USB 3.0). Zilch. - Have yet to try "reset BIOS to default" suggestion as it looked a bit of a last resort.
Just installed Windows 8.1 Professional and tried to update all drivers via System Update. After that i installed latest Ericsson drivers (H5321 gw mobile broadband network adapter), and.... nothing! 3G is not working at all, because Windows says "Device cannot start. (code 10)" on MbmLowExt device.
SIM card installed correctly and working perfectly on my phones.
I just purchased a new 6-cell battery (44+) for my X230. When I install it and restart, I get the message "The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge." After starting Windows I can see that the battery is in fact not charging.
I tried to make sure to buy a 44+ battery that I was told was compatible with the X230.
I have a T420 that I'm using with a Mini Dock Series 3 - 90W 433710U docking station. I'm trying to connect to two external monitors (both HP 1965's) using the DVI and VGA outputs on the docking station. From the VGA output, I'm running a VGA (M) to DVI (M) into my monitor. I can only get either the DVI or VGA outputted monitors to work by themselves, but not together. When I connect both external displays, it will switch off one of the external monitors (the first one connected). Both are verified working as external monitors with the T420, just not at the same time. When using the DVI output, I can get dual monitors to work using the ThinkPad display as one monitor and the DVI-connected external monitor as the second. Is there a way to connect to two external monitors from a T420 with a Mini Dock Series 3 - 90W 433710U docking station? Or do you a multi-monitor adapater, such as an Cirago HDX3DV01 to do that?
I have an X230 to which I would like to add fingerprint reader. I have ordered a brand new palmrest with fingerprint reader. My question is, is this a simple plug and play operation or will there be bios config to do and drivers to add? I have an mSATA SSD will this cause any issues...

I replaced dc jack by following hardware repair manual, but the laptop is not starting(zero response on pressing power button) afterwards. When ac adapter is connected, the battery light blinks three time, showing connection made. My suspicion is damaged key board or could be mother board. Does standby battery has anything to do with starting up computer?
I got an X230 a few months ago and the power key has stopped working. It doesn't spring back like the other keys and pressing it has no affect. My laptop is under warenty so I plan on contacting the store I bought it in about a repair but I'm wondering is there any way for me to use the laptop in the meantime? Any way to turn the laptop on without using the power key?
Trying to upgrade my wifi card. The machine originally came with Centrino 2200 card. I wanted to upgrade to Centrino 6205. I thought that all I had to do was ensure that I get a card that has a known/authorized FRU, as per the X230 FRU List. So I picked a card with FRU 60Y3253, but upon installing it, I get the all familiar "1802: Unauthorized Network Card" error. Why? What else am I missing?
after few seconds of heavy CPU usage on my x230 termal sensors show temperature slightly above 100 degrees celsius. I think it's way to high and probably should call the service to replace the fan, clean the heatsink etc, but wanted to make sure.For comparison, my previous machine (x201) did not ever go above 85 degrees during similar tasks.
Brand new X230 here, with the Lenovo wifi. It seems like when I first got it that it would reconnect to wifi after waking, but now, after having done all my software installation, system updates, bios update, etc. - at some point it stopped doing this. After waking I've tried turning wifi on and off, disabling and re-enabling the adapter, releasing and renewing the ip (it won't renew). Basically, after coming out of sleep it seems like the adapter just won't "wake up" fully and get a new ip address. All Windows and systems updates have been performed.
my x230's fan is most of the time running full speed, and returns to regular (almost no noise level) for only a few minutes.I just got this x230 for less than a month and i notice this since most of my colleagues' laptops are all the time quiet compared to mine, which is a lot newer than theirs.Later on I will try the Full HW scan & see how it goes.
I bought a genuine x220/x230 battery. After I power on the laptop, I got a message: the laptop doesn't support this battery. I tried to update the bios but nothing happend. The power manager said the battery voltage, performance, cycles, LGC battery. If I unplugged the laptop, it is works so the laptop can use the battery just not charge. If it was not a genuine battery I can't see these description or I should also?
Maybe this is not compatible with my x230 because it compatible just x220 and the seller didn't know it?
I am thinking of getting the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM external monitor and use it with my y510p Lenovo laptop. My question is: Is there any way to get the 2560x1440 resolution out of the monitor using only VGA or HDMI port of this laptop?
I have a Lenovo X230 2324-3XU, and I cannot pair my bluetooth headphones to the computer. I can turn on the bluetooth with the Fn+F5 function, but the bluetooth icon doesn't appear in my icon tray, and I can't use the Add Device to discover the headset.
