I couldn't have my mini HDMI port working again. It was working fine and one day, out of a sudden it just stopped working.

 

I ended up buying an USB to DVI connector, so now I am connecting the external monitor through the USB port, but the mini HDMI port in the ultrabook is not working anymore :(

 

If someone finds a solution/drivers, etc... pls let me know to give it a go as well.

No still not fixed. Its ridiculous that something so expensive does not have all the components working.

It did not work even with Win 8.1

Latest suggestion from lenovo was to buy another cable. I have tried three different cables now including one regular HDMI cable with an added separate HDMI to mini HDMI adapter.

None of these worked.

I would be open to trying another if they can tell me a brand and a cable that is proven to work

@ross, I tried the same as well and nothing worked:

* I bought 4 different mini HDMI cables, some of them expensive ones. I think one was from Belkin.

* I bought a converter mini HDMI to standard HDMI

* Another converter from mini HDMI to DVI

 

Nothing worked with the Lenovo S1. The thing is that those adapters and cables work with other devices and TV, hence that TV and the rest of the hardware is fine, the only thing that doesn't work is the expensive ultrabook (annoying at best if you ask me!!)

 

At the end, I just went for an USB to HDMI (or VGA) adapter. They work fine for my needs, but still wondering if the mini HDMI problem will ever get fixed!!

I'm having this problem too. Works with the Thinkpad Dock but when I try and connect via the mini HDMI port it sometimes works then it stops. Tried updating the drivers and so success. This is really frustrating. I think it is a software issue as I know the cables and hardware external to the computer are fine.

In my own case, 96% Ethanol helped. I've tried the latest drivers, different cables and cables+HDMI2miniHDMI converter - no result.

But when I washed ultrabook's mini-HDMI connector in ethanol and scrubbed it with a toothpick, it began to work.

I haven't used this connector before for 6 years, and it was dusty enough.
