Yoga 900-13ISK: No image on second monitor using USB-C to HDMI adapter

Hi, I am trying to use a second monitor on my new Yoga 900-13ISK.

I am using a USB-C to HDMI adapter. But when I connect it to the monitor, nothing happens. It is as if there is no connection at all.

Anyone else tried to connect a Yoga 900 to a second monitor? Successfully? Smiley Happy

I have connected via the USB type C adapter to a Dell U2410. However the connection appears to be intermittent, as if port requires a timing response peridically to maintain the connection. It appears as a loss of HDMI connection on the monitor approx. 1/minute (for a about 2-3 seconds), then recovers without intervention.

I have heard you can use the USB 3.0 to run a second monitor. Is this true? I am trying to figure out the second monitor myself and haven't had any luck getting information.

I'm using this cheap cable from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014OSULF2?keywords=usb%20c%20to%20hdmi&qid=1451943290&ref_=sr_1_5&... and it works great. I don't have any issue connecting an external monitor. My monitor is the dell s2715h with a 1080p display

Thanks, russr1123, I'll try it.

 

Is your laptop a Yoga 900-13ISK?

yeah it is. You need to go into the display settings and set up the external monitor for either mirroring, single display on it or extending desktop.

Already did the mirror/extending thing, but nothing happens. I assume that either the cable is not working, or there is something wrong with this specific Yoga.
Thanks again - I will go for another cable to begin with Smiley Happy

hopefully it's the cable, because a bad usb-c port would suck. Could be the drivers too, did you try updating them display drivers?

I seem to have this same adapter, but without branding (the packaging said Eletra). There's also one branded AUKEY on Amazon. They are all probably the same.

Not working for me, nothing happens when I try mirroring
