Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Duplicate Screen To External Monitor And Get 1920 X 1080 Resolution?
Apr 22, 2014
I have just taken delivery of my Yoga 2 pro but I am struggling with the setup and cannot get a proper duplicated screen using a Kensington 3.0 Superspeed dock. The Yoga has a resolution of 3200x1800 and my spare screen is a BENQ G2420HD at 1980x1080.
I have already ordered a screen and a dock to replicate this setup in a foreign country and the kit is on its way including a second Yoga 2 pro!
I recently purchased a Yoga 2 pro and a Dell U2713HM montior. The monitor will suport 2560x1440. I am using a Toshiba Dynadock usb 3.0 docking station. I can't get the screen display to be above 2048x1152. I've tried the dvi, vga and hmdi on the docking station. What is the maximum resolution for a second montior for the Yoga Pro 2? How to get the yoga pro 2 to output a higher resolution? It would be disappointing if the max is 2048x1152 on a 27" monitor.
I'm looking into buying this laptop. Certain online websites, such as Acer's, have said that it's maximum resolution is up to 1920 1080, but I am not sure if this is true for all model of the 6930. Other websites say that it only goes up to 1300 something.

23" 1920 x 1080 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005125
I know that i'll have a better performance with the 20" since it's using the lower resolution but how much of a decrease in performance would i see if i hooked it up to the 23" and it's native resolution? I'll be playing some what intensive games.
I have a yoga pro 2 and I want to connect to an external monitor. I bought a mini HDMI to HDMI cable. Video is perfect but no sound. If I plug into a TV the sound comes from the TV so cable is OK. Can I change the settings on the Yoga to allow the sound to come from the computer speakers when plugged into an external monitor using mini HDMI?
I have bought a Philips Brilliance 272P4 external monitor. Connected the monitor with DVI through docking. I get 1920 x 1080 as max resolution. The monitor displays a note, that I should use 2560 x 1440. I have installed the newest driver to the monitor.
The display card (Nvidia NVS 5400M) is using 333.02 driver, that is the latest recommended. How to enable higher resolution?
Do I get higher resolution with using the displayport insted of DVI port?
I only bought the one link pro to connect my Thinkpad Yoga 2 to my Samsung monitor with WQHD-Display with 2.560 x 1.440 Pixel. Lenovo told me that this is possible. With DVI I only get the maximum 1920 x 1200 which makes round circles look like eggs...
I need the full resolution.
I there any configuration, cable, display port instead of DVI cable?
(I have the newest, best, DVI cable (forgot the specification for high resolution DVI cable, ports)).
I have T410 with Nvidia NVS 3100M with driver version 189.55 connected to external Acer monitor capable of 2560x1440 linked with DisplayPort cable. But, I can't get resolution higher than 1920x1080. What do I need to do?
I am planing on buying a Sony Vaio F or FW.When I saw a Sony Vaio FW in Full HD in a store, I felt it hard to read text on it as my eyes started to hurt and I felt it was too bright.Is it just me ? or is it something you get used too ? Are there any improvements in the display of Sony VAIO F ?
Loving my Yoga 13 so far have had it since Oct 26th when it was released. Like everyone else I had some issues with partitioning yadda yadda yadda, got that taken care of, but lately I've noticed that my screen brightness seems to flicker, ALL the time, when switching from program to program if the color changes on the screen I notice that the brightness changes as well in noticeable increments. I have the automatic brightness setting set to OFF, so I can't imagine that's the reason.
I have a crack on my screen that starts in the bottom left and spreads to almost the top right. It is not bad and everything works fine except for the touchscreen. Only half the touchscreen works and sometimes the crack causes the other half of the touchscreen to act on its own and its very annoying and messes me up when I try to surf the web or use Microsoft Office. Is there a way I can disable the touchscreen?
I have just bought the Flex 15. I looked at the power settings and set the brightness, but it is ignoring the settings and always either darker or brighter than I want it. It keeps flickering between being darker and brighter and it's giving me a headache. It is unplugged if that makes a difference, I haven't used it plugged in yet to know if it does it then. How can I stop it? I've looked through the settings and can't find anything.
I installed a new video driver today (updated to newest), and all of a sudden my screen is flashing before it rotates when i flip it to tent mode or tablet mode. to be specific, when i flip the screen over, the screen flashes off and back on, before rotating. this has never happened before.
I have a Lenovo Flex 15 device (i5 version with 4GB ram). I upgraded it with an SSD, reinstalled Win 8.1 in UEFI mode. Everything works fine.
Next I replaced the 4GB memory with an 8GB version (same speed, Kingston) now the machine won't boot anymore, all it shows me is a black screen, both with power switch and novo button. If I reinsert the original ram it boots just fine again. The 8GB ram is not faulty, I tried it in another device and it works. I also tried disabling secure boot in bios but it's the same problem.

I got my new Yoga 2 Pro last week and the screen rotation worked properly. I decided to wipe the partitions and install my own version of Windows 8.1.
Since then the screen rotation doesn't work. The screen rotation button doesn't do anything and I don't have the 'Enable auto-rotate' checkbox in the resolution screen
In my device manager I have an error on 'HID Sensor collection' saying "This device cannot start" (Code 10). Failed to initialize sensor from HID collection descriptor". I am not sure if this is related.
I've been having problems with the dreaded "black screen" when starting my Yoga13 (but only somethimes!). To try and narrow it down, as there seem to be so many things that can cause this, I went into the Bios settings from "F2" and setup it up to ask for a "Power on" password before starting windows.
What I have discovered is that when the black screen occurs its BEFORE the Bios asks for the initial "Power on" password, ie I cannot see the box asking for the password and so Windows has NOT yet started to load. To overcome this, I just press the power button to switch off the system, wait 20seconds and then it will usually start.
Once past this, no errors ever occur on the windows side.
I just formatted my yoga 2 pro, downloaded the drivers and ran the Bios Update. I followed the instruction on the read me, ran the .exe, clicked next/ok until the laptop restarted and if I'm not mistaken a red menu with a progress bar showed up. At that point I left and when I came back a few minutes later the laptop was turned on, the screen lighting was on but the display was black, the keyboard backlights were also turned on and everything else was off. The lights on/near the power button that signal if it's turned on and plugged to the AC are turned off.
It's been like this for over 30 minutes now, no signs of progress. I'm not very keen on turning off or unplugging the laptop while flashing the BIOS, but at this point there's not much else I can do.
I had a problem for a few days now, sometimes, out of nothing, the screen color turns yellowish....like a warm color....i right click in the home screen, personalize, display, calibrate color, the template for color calibration appears, i enter next...and voilá, it comes back to the cold white color....it just happened as i turn from tent mode to laptop mode to wright this thread
I've noticed the screen on my Yoga 2 pro tries to automatically adjust the brightness of the display depending on how dark or light the content being displayed is... I want to figure out a way to make it stop. For example, my desktop background is just plain black, and when i got to my desktop, it starts to dim by 4-5 levels lower, and then when I go back to my browser, it reverses and starts to turn up the brightness by 4-5 levels. I've already tinkered with all the power settings and even the advanced power settings to turn of auto dim/automatically adjust brightness etc and all those settings but it still does it.
I don't think this is the same screen flicker that is experienced by the few others due to auto brightness problems...
It's flickering black and then the whole thing turns unresponsive after a while...and although the video shows it happening during a low light environment, i have had this encounter during a brightly lit area as well...
I've posted a copy of what really happens on google drive. Is this a case of motherboard problems? I jsut got my laptop about 3 weeks ago. Any chance for a 1-1 exchange?
I'm looking for a 24'' external monitor and was interested in one by Asus:
Well, technically it's 23.6''...But I noticed the resolution is 1920 x 1080, meaning it is 16:9. I know my MBP has a resolution of 1440x900 making it 16:10. I understand that most widescreen TV's use 16:9, however widescreen laptops use 16:10. Will connecting a 16:9 external monitor to my Macbook Pro have any problems?
Just picked up this model from Best Buy yesterday. Like everyone else in the large thread I am having the yellow color issue as well. However, I have another issue that I can't seem to find any information on.
The brightness on my screen is constantly adjusting. It is most obvious when making the move from the desktop to Metro. After hitting the windows key, I can see the brightness increasing in stages (about 4 times) after flipping over to Metro.
I have disabled Auto-Brightness under the Change My PC Setting -> Power and Sleep menu. I have also disabled Enable Adpative Brightness under Windows Power Mangement but the issue still persists.
Is there any other location I might be missing a setting that can be affecting this ? Brightness is set to full and keeps dipping down.
Just picked up my brand new Yoga 3 Pro a few days ago and on the whole I love it, except I've just noticed there's an odd issue when listening to music (whether it be local or streaming thru spotify).
If I'm browsing a document in Word or even when accessing the Lenovo Support screen from the Start menu, any left to right horizontal scrolling (either with the touch screen or touchpad) causes a crackling interference to the sound. I did notice it would crackle as the Discussion forum cards were loading up and appearing too.
It's not the physical speakers themselves because this occurs thru headphones as well.
Strange thing is it doesn't occur when scrolling vertically through a document.
On the whole it's not a HUGE problem, but given it's a brand new 2grand laptop, now while it's still brand new and I haven't even had a chance to load much onto it. How to stop this from happening?
