Ideapad s10-3t and external monitor

Hi There,

 

i use the s10-3t now for two weeks. i love it, but one problem i could not solve...

I am not able to connect to an external monitor via VGA.

On the Tablet was Windows 7 Home Premium preinstalled. If I use FN + F3 or Windows-Key + "P" after connecting the monitor to the VGA-Port it does not appear.

I already installed again the actual video-drivers ( http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/au/en/driversdownloads/APR_Driver_List.aspx?CategoryID=45252&OS=Wi... ) without a result.

 

Any idea?

 

Best regards

Oliver

ollohan try going to Windows Mobility Center and see if your external monitor shows.

Hi ElCamino!

 

Thanks for your answer!

There ist no monitor, unfortunately. I hope thats a driver problem, not a hardware error.

Did you try to right click anywhere on the desktop>Graphics Options>Output To> Then click on Monitor. See if this helps. You do get more options from that menu as well.

This is driver issue when use lenovo screen rotation rotate to 90, 180, 270 degree.

At these degree, intel GMA can't open.

I use windows mobility center is ok to display switch at tablet mode.

 

 

If you prefer to use intel GMA function at tablet mode.

I think remove lenovo screen rotation is a better way now.

If remove it, rotate button will no function.

But you can rotate the screen by windows mobility center.

Hi ElCamino!

 

I already tried this, no help. There is no external monitor shown, only the internal display...

I even tried to boot with the monitor connected. I thought that the tablet may be not recognize the monitor. Also no help.

I use a Viewsonic 28 inch Monitor with 1900x1200 possible resolution. This works with my other notebooks very well.

No, i have not tested a different cable, i have to do it. In the past, the actual cable works without any problems. I use it in this moment with another notebook (dell).

The bios is the actual one.
