Re: Mini Displayport not working on new Best Buy Yoga 14 (Yoga 460)

I wanted to provide clarification on the use of Mini DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI dongles on Yoga 14 (20FY), Yoga 460, and P40 laptops.

 

Due to a design limitation, the miniDP to HDMI/DVI dongle is unsupported on these models. Lenovo has released a Service Tip regarding this limitation. It can be found here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/SF16-T0022

 

A list of supported dongles can be found in the Safety, Warranty, and Setup Guide which can be found here under User Guides - Safety, Setup, Troubleshooting, and Warranty menu: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-Yoga-460

 

 

Thank you,

Hi Amy,

Does the same design limitation regarding miniDP to HDMI/DVI/VGA dongles not being supported apply to the Yoga 260 (20FD) as well?

 

I have had only intermittent success with a Yoga 260 (20FD) and the following adapter: http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00WHR06XK/ref=pe_386430_121528420_TE_dp_2

 

Usually video-out via the HDMI or VGA ports on this adapter will work fine. At other times, seemingly at random, no video-out (from the miniDP port nor from the dedicated HDMI port on the right side of the laptop) works on my 20FD machine. I have had to completely re-install the Intel HD graphics driver (20.19.15.4352) to get video-out working again.

Npr2b,

 

On the Yoga 260, miniDP to VGA dongles are supported as documented in the Safety, Warranty, and Setup Guide available here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-Yoga-260

However, you'll note that the supported dongle is only miniDP to VGA, not to HDMI/DVI/VGA.

 

I suggest swapping out your current multi-type dongle with a miniDP to VGA to test. If the supported dongle fails, please contact Lenovo Service for Support. If it works with no issues, your current dongle may be the cause of failures.

 

Thank you,

Re: Mini Displayport not working on new Best Buy Yoga 14 (Yoga 460)

I need to connect two HDMI displays to this laptop (BB Yoga 14 / 460) and I'm willing to invest into OneLink+ dock (40A40090US). Is it possible that a $1.000 rig with two GPUs (one integrated and one discreete) has no means to output two HDMI signals? :/

 

I've also posted here.

 

Thanks

 

Marcus

What about a Yoga 460 with a external monitor connected from DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort? On my external monitor gives no output?, although the monitor is recognized by Windows (10 x64)

Well that's bad... Is there any clarification if this "limitation" affects all cables or just the Lenovo branded adapter? I might have a cable to return and an angry face to calm.

I'm successfully displaying on an external monitor connected from my miniDP output (output) to a full-size DP input (on the monitor). No issues. If the monitor is recognized by windows, you may just need to play with your display/GPU settings.

I'm running a BB460 (20FY model), but it appears that the output compatibility is the same.

If by "limitation," you mean the incompatibility of combination-type adapters, then yes, it affects all brands (that I've tried). I have used a half-dozen or so different adapters from different brands, and my results have been consistent with the post by Amy above.

miniDP -> VGA: Works
miniDP -> DP: Works
miniDP -> DVI: Doesn't work
miniDP -> HDMI: Doesn't work
miniDP -> ANY kind of combination adapter (HDMI+DVI+DP+etc...) : Doesn't work on any of the outputs.
