Thinkpad L580 dual external monitor problem (resolution stays at 1024x768)

2021-02-16, 11:14 AM
Hello everyone,
I have a question concerning a Lenovo L580 laptop.
I’m trying to connect two external monitors with the Lenovo USB C hub.
Two 23” HP monitors on 1080p are not a problem, but if I replace one of those monitors with a 27” Philips 1440p screen the other 23” monitor resolution drops to 1024x768 and it can’t be changed to 1080p.
Does somebody recognize the problem ? I'cannot change the resolution from 1024 x 768 to 1920 x 1080 on the second monitor, only on the 27".
the 23" screen is a HP E231
the 27" screen is a Philips 272s
In installed all the lastest drivers from Lenovo Vantage.
Thanks in advance !

Hello JonasB91,


Welcome to Lenovo Community

I suggest that you update the BIOS and drivers thru the support site.

Hope this helps
