Ran into the same problem, I purchased the Wavlink USB 3 to HDMI 2k adapter from Amazon and it fixed the issue. Now I'm using regular USB to HDMI and using the HDMI outlet from the S340 to extend the two monitors. Thanks for the suggestion.

Wavlink has a large number of products. You should say the model number or a Link to buy it.
Is it the WL-UG3501H adapter? https://www.wavlink.com/en_us/product/WL-UG3501H.html

Ideapad 330S-15IKB 81F500NSUS, BIOS 7SCN26WW, Core-i5, 20GB RAM (Crucial CT16G4SFD8266), 480GB Corsair MP510 M.2 NVMe, 500GB Samsung EVO 850 SATA SSD, Intel 9260NGW AC-WiFi OS: Win10 "lite", Manjaro 18.1.1 Xfce k/4.19, LinuxMint and/or Lubuntu

Re:Ideapad S340 dual monitor setup will not work

Hi We have a docking system and we thought my husband and I could share it. He has a think pad and I have an ideapad s340. The computer is able to detect the docking station, I am able to use the mouse/keyboard but the two monitors will not work. 

If I buy the waylink (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CSG7TUC), would this fix the dual monitor problem?

 

Thanks!

This is getting interesting. The short story is that Lenovo seem to have corrected the manual, but without leaving an audit trail.

 

Longer story: I now get the same version of the manual as you when I go to the product page for my S340-14IWL Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81N7. However, I downloaded the user guide when I bought it, and it is a different manual (although it has the same filename). I attach a screenshot.

 

The bit about an external display appeared in a section "Use multimedia" which was at the end of chapter 2 and covered audio, the camera and external displays. This whole section is absent from the current manual. This change might have been triggered by changes that Microsoft introduced in Windows Home of course, rather than being a decision by Lenovo (I'm not an expert here, I mostly use Linux). However, it would have been nice for Lenovo to have presented the current manual as the second edition rather than the first.

Hi, would you be so kind to provide a full version of the manual which you downloaded with a download date? I am having the same issue and try to reach out Lenovo directly and prove they mislead customers. I would have never bought this device if I knew it does not support video transmission via USB-C, now I am stuck with 2 new monitors and USB-C docking station which is not working with S340...What is more, I bough USB.3-HDMI converted, but view transmitted is horrible resolution, formats, etc - view is like 20 years ago and none of settings helps here. The last my chance is what maybe I am using not good enough converted, i would try more expensive just want to be sure it realy pass normal quality view..
