Lenovo Yoga 500 vs external display

2016-07-20, 9:29 AM

Hi all,


We have a Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK and a Samsung LED monitor (tried with other monitor too) connected with hdmi cable. After installed the graphic drivers the external display worked properly for 2-3 weeks. But then it became unseen for the notebook. I've reinstalled the driver and it worked again for 2-3 weeks. Last time I've installed the updated driver but the last week the problem appeared again. As usual I've installed the driver and after the 3rd restart it works again, but I don't know how long.


Have You any idea what's wrong here?


Thank You in advance,

Welcome Hienaturmix

1. Try to download and install the latest Intel and NVIDIA GPU driver from official websites.


2. Download and install the latest BIOS for Yoga 500 from Lenovo Support Webpage.


3. If problem still persist, try and get a new HDMI cable to test if the existing HDMI cable is faulty.
