ThinkPad P53 won't charge via Thunderbolt

2020-08-20, 20:39 PM

I have my ThinkPad P53 laptop connected to my ThinkVision P32-u-10 monitor via Thunderbolt 3 and the laptop doesn't charge. I went through the steps of updating the driver to the monitor and still no luck.

 

Anyone else having similar issues?

Hi,

 

I don't have any personal experience with that model but I don't see any indication that it can charge via Thunderbolt/USB-C.  It's specified to come with at 170W or 230W charger and even if your monitor or other source has maximum capability, USB-C spec is only 100W.
