ThinkPad T470 + Pro Dock 90W problem using DVI + DisplayPort

Hi all,

I have a ThinkPad T470 and a Pro Dock 90W and I'm trying to use 2 different monitor in the same time using Display Port + DVI-D but I can use only 1 at a time (it works only using VGA + Display Port). Is there some way to solve this problem? Any firmware update?

 

many thanks

 

Cheers

HI, I have found the following description in the official link https://support.lenovo.com/it/en/solutions/pd027981:

 

 1x DisplayPort 1.2 (For exclusive use with DVI-D), 1x DVI-D (For exclusive use with DisplayPort), 1x VGA port

 

But is not clear for me that this confirm or no that I can't use with PRO-Dock DisplayPort and DVI in the same type.

 

Please yes or no is enought :-)

Hi marioguarino, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

The setup poster on the page you linked to shows that if you want to use two monitors on the dock, one of them must be VGA. So the answer would be no, it is not possible to use the dock DVI-D and DisplayPort simultaneously on the Pro Dock.

Your need the Ultra Dock to use DVI-D and DisplayPort simultaneously.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Hi bananaman,

Hi marioguarino,

 

it is possible to use USB3 to HDMI converter, then it is possible to connect one monitor usinf Displayport or DVI and second one using HDMI.

:-( Unluckily I have checked but for a resolution greater than 1080 I have to spend a lot of money (at least 50€) ... so this is not a simple try ... many thanks for the suggestion in any case.

 

cheers
