Can I Use AIO 3 27IMB05 As A Monitor For My Thinkpad Laptop?

2021-09-14, 22:44 PM

Can I Use Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 3 27IMB05 Core i5 | 8GB | 256GB As A Monitor For My Thinkpad Laptop?

 

I connected a HDMI cable for my Idealcentre to my thinkpad but its not connecting.

 

I wanted to use the monitor for work and have dual screens, is this possible at all?

 

Thanks

 

Carol

The base spec lists that port as out only  The user guide agrees.  So no :(

Hello @Caz16982 ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I agree with zoltanthegypsy's reply on this one.

Usually if the AIO's HDMI port has only HDMI out that would mean it does not have monitor mode.


Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1
