Two external monitors for FLEX-14API Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 81SS?

2021-07-27, 22:30 PM

Can I connect two external monitors with this model? It's unimaginable that a computer bought in 2020 only supports one external monitor. If you know how to connect two monitors with this model, please let me know. 

 

Thanks.

You may need a converter to link the laptop to an external monitor.

Which converter? I've tried three bought from Amazon and they all didn't work. Apparently, the USB-C port is a data only port.

Welcome to the Community Forums @pasta0630 

 

You need to check first if the devices you are connecting is actually compatible to the unit.

 

Is there a way you can share your machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) to help find details on the machine variant. You can check here how to find your machine type model / MTM which consist of ten characters: https://support.lenovo.com/ph/en/videos/vid100751-how-to-locate-serial-number-and-machine-type-model-number-may-2020-update

 

Please refrain from posting your machine serial number on the thread.

 

Regards.
Dex
