Yoga 900 video out issues

We have several new Yoga 900 laptops running windows 10 pro. I'm trying to use them to display on an Epson Brightlink projector. I've purchased CableCreation USB 3 mini to DVI adapters to drive the Epson but when I plug in the adapter to the 900 it doesn't recognize it (Windows does not show installing drivers or anything) and it won't project. Currently we have a VGA cable comming from the Epson so I have a DVI to VGA adapter connected to the USB 3 mini to DVI adapter.

 

I read on one of the posts that the Yoga doesn't support DVI out of the mini port. Or that I might need to update the 900 bios in order for this to work. 

 

Are there updates and such I should run on the machines to get this working?

 

Or?

Re: Yoga 900 video out issues

Hi,

On the Yoga 900 spec-sheet (UE type, there is a MK type also) they don't speak about DVI, only HDMI and DP displayport via USB3 Type-C format. Maybe you have your answer there.

cheers

Hello BK5,
The Yoga 900 USB-C will work with a VGA or HDMI adaptor, however it will not work with DVI.
Hope this ansers your question.
