yoga 910 wont connect to monitor

2019-06-16, 20:47 PM

I have a lenovo yoga 910 that I bought about 3 years ago and I recently bought a usb-c to HDMI adapter for me to plug my laptop into an external monitor I have. When I set everything up and turn on the monitor, the monitor recognizes that the laptop's been connected but it says that there is no signal so nothing shows up on the screen. My drivers are updated and I know the problem is not the adaptor since I can connect my phone to the monitor via the adaptor and it works.

 

Please let me know if you have any suggestions to fix this. Thanks.

Welcome to the Community

 

First, make sure you're using the FORWARD USB-C port as the rear one doesn't do video.

 

If it still fails, try a different adapter. The 910's USB-C implementation, being early to the game, is a little different than subsequent models and probably your phone, too. I had to go through a couple before finding one that'd work on a 910. There's a thread in this section where users list adapters of various kinds that work and those that don't.  I've been using a Trendnet adapter. Liked it so much, I bought another one for my 920.
