So I bought a new s540 without an os. Installed Windows 10, ran automatic updates, installed other drivers manually etc...
When I connect the laptop to an external monitor nothing happens - trying on different monitors and cables.
I thought I had a damaged product so went back to the store for a replacement. A few days later I got the replacement - same exact problem. The sales representative said it is probbly a problem with the whole line. Is that so? I just returned it to get my money back. Is it a known problem? I see that I'm not the only one having this problem. I've been a Lenovo user for most of my life and would like to remain one. Can you please suggest a fix? I'm not going to buy another s540 / ideapad model until I can find a solution.

I just solved this issue. After installing Windows and all updates and drivers (since I bought a freeDOS) I could not get the hdmi to work. After reading the forums, I went into BIOS settings, under BOOT, and changed "Legacy Boot" to "UEFI". Started up the Laptop and hdmi was working perfectly!
