Yoga 2 Pro micro HDMI -> HDMI External Display not working

2016-10-18, 2:05 AM

I purchased an external monitor on Friday.  It worked on Friday and Saturday. Sunday when I booted up, the external monitor no longer worked. The history appears to show an automatic update occurred overnight.  I was running Windows 8.1.  I upgraded to 10.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the intel video driver, I reinstalled the chipset driver.  I have trimmed the micro HDMI cord as suggested in one of the posts.  I have seen enough posts on the various boards to know my issue does not seem to be an isolated case... but I haven't been able to find an explanation of the cause or a reliable solution.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi Mose1, did you find a solution for the micro-hdmi win10 problem?


Have exactly the same, it just to work under 8.1, but doesn't under win10. Tried all available drivers, the connector/cable was a bit flaky so bought several new ones. Even bought usb3.0 to hdmi adapters to try to bypass problem, but have not found a solution yet... Hope you might have found one... ?

Re:Yoga 2 Pro micro HDMI -> HDMI External Display not working - the solution

after year's i found the solution in a other blog. It's very simple. The Micro HDMI adapter part which goes into the notebook is to short. You have to cut with a little knife a bit less than 1mm from the plastic, so that the adapter goes a bit deaper into the notebook. If done this, and it worked.
