Lenovo Yoga 710 Dual Monitor using the mini HDMI

2016-09-02, 20:57 PM

Hi, 

 

I brought a Mini HDMI to DVI cable to use an additional monitor, however i am reading that this dose not typically work with Lenovo's. This seems very stupid! Is there any way to run dual monitor on the 710 or do i need to get a $100 One Link Hub?

How do you want to use it the 2 screens?

 

(a) 1 screen on your Yoga 710 and 1 screen as the external monitor? or

(b) you want to run 2 external monitors? and turn the Yoga 710 screen off?

 

Do you have Windows 10? For option (a): In the right-bottom corner of the taskbar Notification center > Project > Extend.

That should work that is a basic Windows function. Do you have Windows 10?

 

Connect the external monitor. In Windows 10, next to the windows sign is a search, type "display settings". Click display settings, set for 2 screens. 

 

Alternatively, in Windows 10 iFor option (a): In the right-bottom corner of the taskbar Notification center > Project > Extend.

My previous setup (prior to my Yoga 710) was an HDMI to DVI cable to my external monitor. Now that I have my Yoga 710, I simply purchased a Mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter and plugged it into the HDMI-DVI cable. Works just fine.

 

One note: I'm discovering that Windows updates are often messing up hardware drivers. In my case on the 710, I can always tell when Windows updates, because the external monitor no longer works. After a few days, the new video drivers come available (or, if I'm impatient, I roll the driver and/or update back) and the external monitor works again.

I want to use option B, run 2 HD monitors and turn off the laptop screen. 

 

With only the mini HDMI on the laptop itself, what are my options??

I tried to get a Micro HDMI to VGA adpater and that didnt work for me either to extend the display from my Yoga 710 to Dell 24" Monitor. I used the below model to extend the display.

Please suggest, If there is any solution for this.
