How can I use my Yoga 900 w/ dual external monitors? What's needed & what configuration is required?

I've been unable to determine what I need to get to enable my Yoga to connect and extend to my two Viewsonic (VS15453) DVI/VGA monitors. Is anyone successfully running their Yoga 900 with dual external monitors? If so, how can I configure my set to do the same? Thanks in advance.

Hi jrraymond , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Similar to your planned multi display for your yoga 900 here on this dicussions where fellow members were able to set it up that you can review : 

 

USB Type-C docking station for Yoga 900
Yoga 900 two external screens 

 

The discussion is a bit long but detailed as I hope would help you for your setup.

Regards

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, there appears to still be no solution to this issue. The Plugable website has reported that some people (like the poster in the thread you suggested) have had success with their new triple docking station, but that in testing it has worked very poorly for the Yoga 900 to the point that they have removed it from their compatibility list. See here: http://support.plugable.com/plugable/topics/usb-c-docking-and-yoga-900-support

 

Sadly, I plan now to return my Yoga 900 today and purchase an alternative that can support two external monitors today. Thanks for your assistance nonethless.

Hi jrraymond , 

 

Greetings.

 

Fellow member Bww1900 and  ToddCT  on the discussion claims a setup with the following working ok :

  • 2- 24 inch Dell Untrasharp monitors
  • 1- 2 TB NAS drive, strictly for backup and web access
  • 1- 2Tb hard drive via USB 3.0, NAS is slow compared to the USB 3.0
  • gofandango USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Station. It has a number of USB 3.0 ports and a network jack

Since most likely such set up is a priority for your usage , being confident on your equiptments would be the best decision to take. 

 

Best luck to all your endeavors. 

 

Regards
