We ordered about 20 of the Lenovo 10AY tiny desktops for our businesses and I've found a consistent problem with the Lenovo tiny computers and NEC monitors.
Whenever i pair the lenovo 10AY units with our NEC monitors in our business, users have constant monitor brightness issues. I have updated to the latest version of Lenovo power manager software on several desktops and the monitors still will not stay at 100% brightness after a log off/reboot. I've also tried downloading the latest NEC monitor drivers. still no luck. Here's how it goes:
- deploy new lenovo 10AY
- log into workstation
- NEC monitor goes to lowest brightness setting
- manually set brightness back to 99%
-double check lenovo power manager settings to ensure brightness is set to 100%, dynamic brightness control is disabled, timers are off ETC..
-log off computer
- log back into computer
- 5 mins later, monitor goes to lowest brightness setting
- go into monitor menu and manually change brightness back to 99%
-REPEAT above steps every day
on the other hand. i found a DELL monitor and a SAMSUNG branded monitor and plugged the same computers into them. No dimming occurs. Power manager settings work fine.
This is specific to NEC Multicync monitors. The exact model i tested was a NEC Multisync EA244WMI LED
