Hello, I have a Yoga 2 13 laptop with Win 10 and wanted to use an external monitor.
So I got a micro HDMI to HDMI cable and hooked it up to my monitor, but surprise, it does not work.
I already tested the micro HDMI to HDMI cable and the monitor with my Sony A6000 camera,
it worked fine, first time and every time.
Already read the Yoga 2 Pro thread about cutting a bit of plastic off the micro HDMI cable,
not neccessary, measuread the depth of the micro HDMI port on the laptop, 5.2 mm,
and the length of the metal part of the micro HDMi cable, 5.5 mm. When I plug in,
I can hear and feel the click-in-place of the cable in the port, it goes all the way, and there
is still a bit of room, 0.3mm, left on the outside, so definitely not a metal part length problem.
Already tried un- and re-installing both the Lenovo and the Intel driver for the Intel VGA
display card, no fix.
Basically it behaves like this, when I plug the cable, the monitor wakes up, but immediately
says "Entering Power Save Mode" and goes back to sleep, like it recognizes a connection
but there is no video signal coming. On the laptop there is no sign of a connection,
in the Display settings, when I press Detect, I get "Didn't detect another display."
Also tried changing the order of plugging the cable and powering up the monitor,
Tried giggling a little bit the cable inside the port, nothing.
What else can I try? What can I debug ?
Anyone else is using this setup?, does ot have similar problems ?
Thank you so much.

Thank you for using the Lenovo forum,
First thing is suggest i make sure you have all the windows updates done, next try downloading the chipset driver from the lenovo support page as this normaly solves alot of issues.
If these steps do not work or you would like more info on this issue you can call your local Lenovo support line. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers:- https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/supportphonelist_full
Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

So, I re-installed the Intel Chipset driver for my laptop model, updated Windows 10,
but no success, when I connect the micro HDMI cable to the monitor, the monitor
enters the Sleep State.
Don;t know what else to try.

Hi, I have exactly the same issue!
This first happened to me when I was running Windows 8.1 and stayed with the computer after upgrading to Windows 10.
I have tried absolutely everything the same you have with the same results.
Really frustrated with this now and likewise, I have run out of ideas!
