USB C hub HDMI output not working

2021-04-06, 18:43 PM

I have purchased a Lenovo Ideapad 320-15IKB few years ago and it has served very well. I have recently wanted to make some sort of a dock for my laptop that will enable my to connect external keyboard, mouse and display through a single cable. I have bought a USB C hub and connected all my peripherals to it. The mouse and keyboard work fine however, the display is not getting any signal. Is it possible to output HDMI signal through a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port? Do I need to update any driver on my machine to make this work? Or is it impossible?

Welcome to the Community Forums Ori Adereth,


Checking on the user manual of the machine (page 6), it appears that the USB C port of your unit functions as USB 3.1 Gen 1, Output 5V DC, 0.9A DC.


On the same side, there is a HDMI port which is mainly responsible for projecting external display. The USB C port on your machine is not meant to function as a display outlet rather it functions for peripheral devices.


I hope this helps.
