Hi BoyAger!

 

Welcome to community forums,

 

Since the unit has only one port for HDMI (please see specification here), you can use a USB plugable dock like this one to connect two monitors to your Ideapad 530s unit.

 

Regards,

Hello ericalim_lenovo,

Re: How to connect ideapad 530S to two display monitors?

Hi,

 

Thanks for the tip. However -

I have my Ideapad 530S (81EU00QAMX) in my office, standing in front of two black monitor that eagers to get a video signal soon. Right now they don't. I went to the retailer to get a tip for a docking that would take care of the video signal handling. After discussing the USB-C port on my ideapad (which is not supporting video signals, they sold me the expensive Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 dock, ensuring me that this would get my two monitors a worthy life again. No I've got it delivered, and NOTHING plugged into the dock works. even the USB-A port doesn't get recognized. 

 

Are you sure that a cheap universal docking will fix my problem, when the expensive Thinkpad dock can't? 

 

Best regards

Kenneth

Re: How to connect ideapad 530S to two display monitors?

On my Lenovo ideapad 320 I have a 2nd monitor (extended) working well using the hdmi port.  I'd like to get a 3rd monitor going.  My other monitor uses a VGA connection and I purchansed a USB 3 to VGA converter and while my monitor picks up that it is connected it will not show up when I try to extend to it in the same fashion that I did for the 2nd monitor.  My question...can I use the USB 3 to do this or do I need to use one of the other regular USB ports that I currently use for my mouse and my printer.

Thanks,

Kurt
