W530 External Monitor Display Issues

I am experiencing issues with external monitor displays on W530 connected through ultra dock.  Am running a total of 3 monitors (W530 display plus two monitors).  Whenever there is any sort of time out or sleep mode, the external monitors come back too bright and too yellow.  I can quickly fix by just toggling back and forth between "Use NVIDIA Settings" or "Other Applications Control Color Settings" on the NVIDIA Control Panel but the changes don't stick and the problem recurs.  


Other quirks which may be related are that expanding windows to full screen will sometimes spread across the entire 3-monitors vs just the monitor the window is set up in.  Shrinking and trying again usually fixes this item.  Also, when undocked sometimes W30 display comes up with very low brightness.  Again, problem fixies by closing cover and retrying.


Have tried INTEL power savings settings suggested on similar posting.  No change.


Anyone else encountered these issues?

Re: W530 External Monitor Display Issues

Hi Paul930,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


As per the query we understood that you are issue with external monitor on your ThinkPad W530.


I suggest you to uninstall the current graphic drivers of both Nvidia & Intel, download latest version from the support site and install it.


Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
