Want to connect 2 external monitors on a Lenovo ideapad 320-14ISK

2018-03-13, 16:04 PM

Hi,

I'm stuck trying to connect 2 external monitors to my Lenovo ideapad 320-14ISK (S/N: #######). I've got 1 monitor connected through hdmi, that 1 is working. But my laptop isn't detecting the second one which I have connected with a Satechi adapter to my usb-c poort.

 

I've read that it isn't possible to connect a monitor on this Lenovo laptop through an usb-c poort and even that it isn't possible to connect 2 monitors to this laptop at all!

Can someone help me or tell me if this is true?

Thanks for your help in advance :)

Hello! Unfortunately, i've sunk hours into looking into this myself. Did you ever get this resolved? I wouldn't have bought this laptop if i thought that dual monitors were off the table.

 

Also, curious if anyone has tried the Thinkpad USB 3.0 dock with their Ideapad? Guessing it wouldn't work but thought worth asking. thanks!

I have the same issue, I have gone as far as getting in touch with their online tech support and all they keep saying is its a bandwidth issue and it simply won't support two monitors with high resolution so I have tried to lower my res. to bare minimum and still nothing, I also disabled my laptop screen entirely and used only the external monitor with the hope of detecting the second monitor, still nothing. 

 

It is the oddest thing ever, I have used some very basic laptops in the past and haven't had issues with multiple displays ..I don't think I would have bought this laptop either if I had known but it would have never in a million years occurred to me to ask about this. Its a basic thing in my opinion.

There are multiple questions about dual monitors and no responses.  Doesn't Lenovo answer some of these questions?

Hi,

 

Lenovo ideapad 320 does not support HDMI via its USB-C port because it's a Gen 1. 

 

I've read elsewhere that it works via an adapter USB 3.0 to HDMI.

 

Regards,

fyi - my work bought me the Lenovo USB C dock (model DUD9011D1) and it works with both my Lenovo laptops: 320 (81BH), T470s as well as my Acer 5. 

 

hope that helps someone else save time. not sure what it costs but it's an awesome docking station!

I too had this problem and stumbled across this forum in trying to resolve. I want to share my solution in the hope it will assist somebody having the same issue;

 

I have managed to connect two displays to my Lenovo ideapad 320S by using a StarTech.com USB 3.0 to Dual HDMI Adapter. This is now allowing me to use the laptop and two additional monitors with the ability to extend the desktop and move windows interchangeably between all three screens. My usage is for work only (emails, documents etc.) I can't attest to how well this will work for video playback.

 

If you are based in the UK the adapter can be purchased from the BT store or Amazon for roughly £70 at the time of writing.
