Yoga 520 - dock/replicator help

2019-10-14, 9:03 AM

I have a Yoga 520 running Win10 and ideally I would like to use a dock when in the office.  But I don't believe there is a nice easy one-click dock available, so I'm looking for guidance on USB options please.  I can't find any recommendations on the Lenovo site and when I read the forums a common comment is about using the right cable/USB port otherwise peripherals won't work.  I would like to be able to connect two external HE225 monitors and various USB peripherals (external mouse and keyboard etc) to the dock and then simply "one cable" connect my Yoga.  Anyone got any recommendations for a peripherals solution?  Any tips about cables?  Thanks in advance.

Hi  

 

In regards to the problem, Using a third party device is really not a guarantee to work 100% as Lenovo did not make any docking station that's compatible with the computer that you have as shown https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/docksSearch/. If you are going to use a third party docking station then it's a compatible driver and version from the manufacturer of the dock that you need. The driver makes a device connected to the computer work properly and finding the right one might be a treasure hunt for some to get a device to work properly. Unfortunately Lenovo has yet to make any docking station specifically for your model.

 

It has been discussed on 2 other threads shown https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/How-to-connect-2-External-Monitor-to-Yoga-520/td-p/4422238 and https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Dual-external-monitors-for-Legion-520/td-p/3711176 you can use these a reference if you want to pursue the challenge.

 

If you can get it to work please share it with the community so we can use it for reference.
