Connecting Yoga 900s to an external monitor?

2016-07-19, 19:07 PM

I just purchased the Yoga 900s a couple of weeks ago and need to connect to an external monitor as the screen is too small for daily use.  But I have no idea where to begin.  What kind of cable do I need?  Do I have to use a docking station?  If so, which one is compatible? 

 

Very confused and would appreciate your help.  Thank you!

There is an adapter made for the machine that connects the usb-type-c with video port to HDMI

Then an HDMI cable can connect to a TV or monitor.

Yes it should work. However, I am using the Lenovo Adapter with my Yoga 900 and it works fine

I've the same USB but it can't seem to recognise the external monitor.

Did you have to update any drivers?

BHave you had a fix to this. I've purchased an USB-c to HDMI adaptor and nothing happens.
