Re:Ideapad S340 dual monitor setup will not work

OK - you can download it (until 1 Oct) from https://www.grosfichiers.com/kGaVZAC2cpv - I originally downloaded this file on 25 November last year. For comparison, the product page for my exact laptop model with the link to the current user guide is here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-s-series-netbooks/s340-14iwl/81n7 I'm not sure that Lenovo was deliberately trying to mislead anyone though - a cut-and-paste error from a manual for a similar product might account for what happened. What I would say though, is that Lenovo should have issued a proper correction. IMHO what makes them look very bad is that they apparently tried to cover up their mistake by calling the updated manual the first edition and re-using the filename, which contains an implied date "201902". This also kind of suggests that there was at least one earlier edition before the one that I downloaded. OTOH, another possible explanation is that the version of the manual that is currently available for download is the original and correct one, and the one that I downloaded (the current one at the time I bought the laptop) was released in error. Either way, good luck with getting to the bottom of this.

Re:Ideapad S340 dual monitor setup will not work

Hello All - 

 

Can somebody confirm that the following combination will allow me to connect to 2 monitors. 

 

Ideapad S340 15IWL with intel i7 Processor:

 

I would like confirmation that someone has had success with the above setup before purchasing the displaylink product. 

 

I have been trying to figure this out for a year. I have purchased a 3rd party USBc to femaile HDMI adapter, sent my computer to Lenovo to get "fixed," and tried the Lenovo version USBc to HDMI Adapter and none have worked. Would hate to go down another unsuccessful rabbit hole

 

Thanks all!
