Question: X1 Carbon Type 20A7 WOL problem thorugh ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock

Hi all, We can't get Wake On Lan to work thorugh the new ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock. We are using the brand new X1 Carbon Type 20A7, which I believe is G2 of the Carbon. We have enabled WOL in BIOS and updated to newset BIOS. Anything else to do, or is it just not supported? Thanks Kristian

Answer:X1 Carbon 20A7 not charging using 90W thinkpad onelink pro dock

wait doesent' the docking station come with own power supply? if so then use that and not the laptop one since i'm quite sure it comes with own AC adapter so it can handle charge of laptop and powering the dock.

Hi Lenovo, My X1 have Winsows 10 (x64) with all latest drivers and BIOS update and with Onelink dock helper app in system tray ver:1.10.16. My issue is, that whenever i attach an USB device (even on the laptop itself) the dock disconnets and reconnects. Meaning, the network  flaps and audio too. The external display however remains turned on and does not glitch. I have attached a PC/SC smartcard reader on the dock thru USB and happens the same thing when the smartcard is removed from the reader and reinserted.Attached is the picture of the system notification that pops up. In windows logs there are no alerts too. Regards Aljosa

Hi, During my visit to US in January and February 2014 I purchased the X1 Carbon 2nd Gen (Type 20A7). I got back to south Brazil where I live, it worked fine until October 2014. Suddenly the X1 Carbon didn't boot anymore and the backlight keyboard keep flickering. I realized it was a known issue and several customers had the motherboard replaced or even the equipment replaced.  I planned to reach the US customer service in a future visit to the US but I could not travel to the US from that time, so I tryed to reach the Lenovo customer service in Brazil and check with them to pay for the service and parts replacement so I could have my X1 Carbon working again. I called and told the problem, they said it was possible to fix and they would send me a budget proposal in 4 work days.The customer service took about two weeks to get back to me and surprisingly the budget I received was of U$ 3,650.00 which is the cost of a new X1 Carbon in Brazil ( I paid U$ 2,180.00 in the US for the top version). I am very upset with Lenovo, I lost all the confidence I had to the brand. My only hope is that a senior executive of US Lenovo headquarter would take this matter and help me get my machine fixed or replaced, even for a reasonable value as I could not use it since October 2014.I really do not have much hope that this will help, I am sure it would be different if I have had the opoortunity to get back to the US just after the problem arose but it is so sad, I was ve...

Hi,  I'm looking for a teardown guide for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon SecondGen, but i can't really find anything good. I've read the PDF from Lenovo, but I'd like to know how hard it is to change the keyboard bezel. The reason for the part change is switching from US keyboard to norwegian keyboard.  I know it is a FRU, but it should be possible to do it on my own.

Answer:ThinkPad X1 Carbon (type 20A7): which Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is compatible

Hello and welcome,
 
You've run into the BIOS whitelist.  A card must be a supported model (7260) AND have a Lenovo FRU number (04W3844 or 04X6007).  A "vanilla" 7260 won't pass the whitelist check and you'll get the 1802 error.

I could not connect via Ethernet using the TPY (Win 8.1) and Onelink Dock (basic).  With all updated software, the TPY kept trying to connect to the USB3-ethernet in the Dock but could not start the hardware. I received a USB device not recognized which cycled during a session and seemed to screw up other parts of the system. Thinking it was a driver issue I uninstalled all the ASIX drivers and removed all the driver packages associated with the ASIX AX88179 and AX88178 controller   (see:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730875.aspx  ). Then ran Windows update which downloaded yet another ASIX package. I downloaded both the Win 7 and Win 8 driver packages from ASIX, unzipped and looked these over.  I modified the *.inf files and deleted all the non-english segments with asian or Russian characters at the end of the file leaving only the English segment and saved these on the C: drive.  (http://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&PItemID=131) I reloaded the OneLink drivers from Lenovo.  Ethernet not recognized.From Device Manager,  I tried to update the Ethernet controller driver to the new downloaded, modified Win 8 driver and received the message that the driver was the current driver so it would not update. Instead, I had DM browse for the Windows 7 driver, and loaded that.  Ethernet not recognized. Then I had DM browse for the modified Windows 8 driver.  Thi...

My Onelink Plus dock behaves very strangely, I cannot use the Ethernet port reliably:I bought recently a Thinkpad Yoga 460 ? after my previous Thinkpad ? and an Onelink plus dock. After docking I have to disconnect and reconnect all cables from/to the dock to make the Ethernet work.After that it works great for a period, but sometimes it loses the connection. I have to unplug again all the cables and reconnect them to make it work. To the dock I attached the following: USB keyboard, mouse, external drive, DisplayPort cable (with DP to DVI adapter) and the Ethernet cable. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit (ver. 1607) from a clean install. Every device in the Device Manager seems to be OK, even the ThinkPad OneLink Plus Dock Ethernet.I have the latest software and firmware.Lenovo Companion cannot find new updatesI have updated the BIOS to ver 1.46.I have also updated the Onelink plus dock firmware (Version: 2.33.000). Any idea?

Answer:Carbon X1 4th Gen OneLink Dock Issue

The Onelink dock doesn't connect to USB, "Onelink" is lenovo's special dock/accessory port.  For a 4th gen, it should be Onelink+, which is a thin port about 1" wide located next to the power port on the left edge of the laptop.  That said, if the laptop says the dock is connected even though you don't have a onelink+ dock and have never connected one, there is definitely something wrong.  I'd probably suggest calling Lenovo support, and/or exchanging it for a different laptop through your reseller.

Answer:X1 Carbon (2014) and OneLink Pro Dock

Hello eddie_313
 
If I understand, you are concerned that the OneLink Pro dock will overcharge the battery, which will reduce battery life? The battery is designed to prevent overcharging, so although the OneLink Pro dock is used and the meter shows fully charged, the battery is not being charged continuously.

Laptop alone works like a charm, but when I connect the laptop to oneLink I can't get an image on my second exterior display via dvi nor via vga. The computer finds the screen and name etc, but when I want double or extend or only screen 2 projection nothing happens on the external screen. It keeps saying no input. I have tried to reinstall dock driver, change resolution, updated even bios, still nothing happens. 2. This problem is even more disturbing. If my computer is turned off or restarted while connected to OneLink dock pro, it won't start and freezes at lenovo logo. If I pust laptop to sleep while conected it boots normaly, if i turn it off not connected, then connect it and start it also boots normaly. But when it is shut down while conected it doesn't. Not even if i turn it off while connected, unplug it and turn it on. I have to do reset in this case. Guys I really need help, since those issues make my dock almost completly useless.HELP! Tilen_T

Hello, I purchased two external monitors to connect with my X1 Carbon, 1 through the Onelink Dock and the second directly to the laptop's HDMI port. My problem is when I connect the two external monitors only one of them gets detected. For example, the monitor that is connected through the OneLink dock gets detected by the laptop and functions properly; however the second monitor that is connected directly to the laptop does not get detected so I am unable to use it. If I disconnect the OneLink dock (which one of the monitors is connected to) then that monitor obviously disconnects and the other monitor that is connected directly to the HDMI port on the laptop gets detected and connects. Both external screens are connected via VGA to HDMI.  If anyone has encountered this problem before or has a solution so I can run both external monitors simultaneously that would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

We have one setup with 2 Dell 24" Ultrasharp monitors (U2412M) using the display port and DVI port.  The fact that I couldn't get native resolution of the screens when having dual monitors is strike one but I understand.  If you only have 1 of them i would get native resolutions with the display port. Anyways I had problems with the machine crashing and always when docked.  I made sure the dock had the latest firmware and that the driver was also updated.  It crashed so much that eventually the hard drive got corrupted.  It kept showing NTFS errors so Lenovo replaced the drive for me.  I was really crossing my fingers hoping the drive was bad in the first place thus all my problems. Nope it still crashes! So disapointed because the client loves her laptop but just can't use it with the onelink pro dock.Anyone have a similiar experience or recommendations?  I already have the latest drivers too.

Sometimes when I connect the Onelink connector from the Onelink+ dock, the ethernet port is not detected.  The monitor shows up and usb ports function but there is no local area connection listed in the netword adapters.  If I disconnect the Onelink connector from the X1 and reconnect it, then suddenly the local area connection shows up and is there until the next time I redock the Onelink+.   Is this a known bug?  Anyone else having this problem? This is on Windows 7 x64 with all the latest drivers installed from the Lenovo website.

Hello I am having issue with Thinkpad X1 Carbon wherein i can only get 1920x1080 resolution on my external monitor(capable of 2560x1440) when connected via HDMI port using Onelink Dock but when i connect using the display port direct from X1 Carbon, I can get the full resolution i want. I have updated the firmware of the Onelink Dock and the Video Driver of X1 Carbon, what else can i do? Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance!!!

Answer:X1 Carbon Output Issue with Onelink Dock

The hdmi port on the OneLink port is hdmi 1.3 only, so it doesn't support qhd resolution. You should get the OneLink pro dock with its integrated displayport.

Hello, I bought a X1 gen2 and a onelink pro and noticed that the DVI port does not seem to work with a DVI cable. It only works with the supplied VGA to DVI adapter. Is this correct and it will not work with just a normal dvi to dvi cable?I also tried a VGA to Displayport and it made the X1 constantly detect and undetect the monitor making the screen just flash and windows detect sound. I have also updated all drivers using the lenovo updater and bios. Also updated the Dock with newest firmware.

HI I have a X1 Carbon and just bought a OneLInk PRO Dock thinking I could use this as a port replicator ... only to discover that I didnt do my homework appropriately :-( as it turns out, the Onelink PRO connector does not exist on the version of the X1 Carbon I have (seems like the X1 Carbon 2014 model does so I guess I have a previous model :-( ) whta is the solution/work-around for me  - ie how do I use the OneLInk PRO with my seemingly older version of the X1 Carbon ? Thx in advance Claus

Hello to everyone, I have a very strange problem.I've purchased X1 carbon together with OneLink PRO dock. The problem I have, is that only thing I can use OneLink together is external monitor.USB ports does not work at all, there is no voltage at output, ethernet does not work too.Button on top also works and I can put carbon to sleep and wake him up from sleep.Other stuff does not work. I noticed that dock gets veery hot after 2-3 minutes when connected to power, as well as power supply for it, even if computer is fully charged.I also noticed that red led should be on if dock is active but it is not. I mean RED led on I letter of "ThinkPad". Is there a possibility that I received blown and not working dock from Lenovo?

I want to record the audio from another PC's Windows Media Player by plugging its LINE OUT to the X1 Carbon's OneLink Pro Dock LINE IN (Headset/microphone combo connector).  I know that this PC's LINE OUT works because I can plug either earphones into it or external speakers and this works for me. Setting the Enable for the external Microphone under the recording tab the Sound dialog box of the Hardware and Sound of the X1's Control panel does not do it.  Even if the X1's embedded microphone is disabled, this also does not work for me. I can record sound via the X1's embedded microphone, but I want to record via the LINE IN of the OneLink Pro Dock. I have the latest Windows 8.1 updates and I have the latest OneLink Pro Dock software installed, Version 1.08.31. Thanks, JW

We have a few Lenovo displays we are replacing and wanted to get some USB-C displays for our few MacBook Pro users, but also work with our OneLink Pro & Ultra Docks. Ultra Dock works great with DisplayPort & HDMI. The MacBook Pro's work great with USB-C and Apple's USB to ethernet gets us all set there. The issue is the X1 (gen 3) with OneLink Pro dock. When we setup the dock with DisplayPort it shows the display is connected in the Display Properties, along with resolution and extended desktop, but the display itself shows nothing and has an orange light. We tried 3 different docks and laptops, 2 different P24h displays, and 3 different DisplayPort cables. Confirmed both the display and dock support DisplayPort 1.2. Any idea on what I can do to get this going? So far this is the best display we could find that covers all our bases for our needs.

The problem at hand is well described by another user: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=181294 Problem applies to a brand-new (Jan 2017) ThinkPad X1 Carbon (type 20FB) hooked up to a OneLink+ Dock (part # 40A40090EU). Running Win10 Pro/64. I've got two OneLink+ units, both yield the same result. The laptop will boot just fine when it is not connected to the dock, but when docked, it will not boot past the screen which says "press enter to access BIOS (...)" when the network cable is plugged into the docking station.  It boots just fine when the network cable is not plugged into the rear of the docking station. There's nothing special with the network or cable (works well with a myriad of other laptops) and the ThinkPad in question has the latest & greatest drivers installed. If a docked boot has already taken place, plugging the ethernet cable into the dock works just fine.  In essence, the problem exists only when the ethernet cable is plugged in during boot.  Does anyone know of a fix?

Hi, How can I configure Bitlocker in X1 Carbon using Win8.1 so that the laptop won't ask the freaking Bitlocker Recovery Key every time when I boot the laptop IN the OneLink Pro Dock station AFTER I've used the machine WITHOUT the docking station (or vice versa)? Bitlocker works OK if I boot the laptop every time in same mode (using always docking station OR not using it ever). However, I need to use the laptop in both modes; with the docking station (at work) and without it (at home and when travelling). And I'm not wanting to type the looooooooong Bitlocker Recovery Key every time when I boot the laptop in different mode.  How can I tell for the Bitlocker that both these modes are trusted ones?

A few days ago I was prompted to install an urgent BIOS update.  I followed the screen prompts and the system rebooted and flashed the BIOS.  Our company laptops all have Sophos encryption, which requires a separate login prior to booting the OS (Win7).  I've always been able to enter user ID and password information on that screen using the USB keyboard connected to my OneLink+ dock (which is connected to the laptop). Following this BIOS update, I can no longer use the keyboard or mouse (also USB) connected to the OneLink+ dock until the OS boots.  I have to open my laptop, enter my Sophos ID and password on the laptop keyboard, then close the laptop.  Once the OS (Win7) boots, I can use both the USB devices fine.  Interestingly enough, the monitor attached to the OneLink+ dock functions just fine before the OS boots up. I checked BIOS settings and couldn't see anything there that looked odd or out of place.  I also checed Device Manager to see if there were any warnings or issues, and didn't see anything. I tried to downgrade the BIOS to an earlier version, but once you are above 1.23 that is not possible.  I did flash to the latest release - 1.27 - but that did not fix the issue. So I'm stuck with a rather awkward login process which was not an issue until this BIOS version was installed a few days ago.  I've reviewed other post for similar issues but have not found anything that points at a solution thus far...

I have tried do update all software and drivers from the PC and dock, and still no sucess, does the solution pass by aquiring a HP or Toshiba ??????

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga with Onelink Dock

I have the Onelink (basic) dock, and problems seem to be related to the ASIX AX88179 embedded USB3 to Ethernet controller. The System can't start the hardware then constantly tries to restart the driver.The USB2 version of this hardware (ASIX AX88178) works fine with the TPY as a dongle I had laying around.I bet it is a crappy driver from ASIX that is the root of many problems.So, try disabling the Ethernet controller in Device Manager and see if that helps.Don't know, I'm trying to return my dock to B&H right now.So, what is the embedded hardware in the PRO?Deleting the driver for the USB2 version doesn't help either.

I have a Thinkpad OneLink Pro Dock (DU9033S1 with firmware version 2.21.000) connected to a Lenovo X1 Carbon laptop running Windows 7 (ThinkPad OneLink Pro Dock Driver version 1.08.29). To the DP++ output of the docking station have I connected a Kramer DP to HDMI adapter and a homemade breakout cable (so I can connect to the DDC lines, HPD, DDC 5V power and CEC) to a Benq G2400W monitor. To the DDC-lines on the breakout cable have I connected a Total Phase Beagle I2C analyzer. As you can see from the I2C data I have captured and copied to the next post, are there several issues with this docking related to "High-Definition Multimedia Interface Specification Version 1.3a" chapter 8.5. I have not analyzed the DVI-output, but you should probably verify that it works according to the spec as well. The HDMI output on the laptop seems to work fine. I hope you can forward this to the developers who are responsible for the firmware on the docking so they can fix it. Please tell me when you have a new firmware version where this is fixed! Regards,Mats Randgaard

Resolution works fine, however... : 1) Dell Display Manager stopped working and reported "attach compatible LCD to your PC." This software is quite important to me and since DP is supposed to be "native" I can't find a reason why it shouldn't work. 2) I experience stuttering while dragging windows. The mouse feels a little bit sluggish as well. Definitely a noticeable difference as opposed to connecting the LCD and devices directly to the Yoga. Help would be much appreciated (and have a look here as well...fan noise: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge-S-series/Thinkpad-Yoga-S1-12-5-quot-fan-noise-weird-stylus... Thanks, SF6

Answer:Thinkpad S1 Yoga + OneLink Pro Dock issues

I can confirm that Dell Display Manager is not good with my config also - OneLink (basic) connected to Dell U2412M via DVI.  Can't tell the difference compared to direct connection to laptop though (don't have miniHDMI adapter). @SFsix, sorry about this offtopic question, but do you have any problems with random disconnection/connection of OneLink Pro from TPY, more specifically for Ethernet and USB interfaces. More details here: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Options-Accessories/Re-OneLink-network-port-flapping/td-p/1358947 it's a pretty long thread already but in brief all users of OneLink basic non-Pro (myself included) report this problem for constant disconnect and re-connect of OneLink interface. So we were wondering if OneLink Pro users experience this problem... Will appreciate your feedback.

To Whom It May Concern, This has been a nightmare trying to get support for a 3-year Worldwide Warranty product that my company purchased a little over 1 year ago. The dock's DisplayPort seem to not be working properly. The monitor that is connected to it will randomly go blank. I've tried updating to the latest drivers and firmware for the dock. I tried switching monitors and switching cables. I've tried moving around USB devices to make sure it isn't interfering with operation. I've tried connecting the bare minimum to the devices and the problem persisted. I need the DisplayPort as I am running a dual monitor setup. I contacted the Customer Service line to get support. To my dismay, I was told my product was not under warranty and had to send in a copy of the invoice for my product. The support rep gave me an email address to their entitlement department and was told I will receive a response within 24-48 hours. It's been 96 hours now and no response. I try calling again to check on my status, but told the same thing and that they don't have the service case in their system. I hope some Lenovo rep can see this and provide some assistance.

Hello, I recently installed a ThinkPad OneLink Pro to go along with a user's X! Carbon.  Once I had the drivers installed everything appears to work ok except for when the user has external speakers connected to the dock.  The speakers are USB powered and also plug into the headphone jack. When inside of "Sound Options" within the control panel you see the device light up once I plug the headphone cable in but no audio comes out of the speakers.  It continues to come out of the speakers on the laptop itself. Troubleshooting 1.  I connected the USB cable to the laptop and left headphone connection in dock.  No audio from external speakers audio played through laptop speakers.2.  I connected the USB cable to the laptop and connected the headphone cable to the laptop.  Audio comes from the external speakers.3. Reconnected everything back to dock and disabled speakers on laptop.  No audio from external speakers but audio still comes from laptop speakers4. Same setup as #3 but enabled laptop speakers and manually set External speakers to be default playback.  No audio from external speakers...audio came through laptops speakers. To me this seems to point to the dock but I'm not sure what I can do.  I checked the utility for the dock itself but all those functions do is point you to sections in Control Panel. As a side note she had a different Lenovo dock before that did not power the lap...

We received 2 brand new X1 Carbon (type 20A7) models and neither have been able to detect the Gobi 5000 WWAN card (Sierra Wireless EM7355, Lenovo Part# 0C52902.)  The X1 Carbon's are running the latest drivers (including BIOS update), Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1- it doesn't matter: They will not detect the WWAN card in the WWAN slot. Tried 2 different WWAN cards straight out of the box from Lenovo (these happen to be the Verizon variants, I don't have any AT&T ones handy) and it's like it doesn't even exist. Yet I can remove either Gobi 5000 card and install it into a T440s and it comes up without any issue. I've tried taking a working and activated Gobi 5000 card out of a T440s and putting it into the X1 Carbon, yet the X1 Carbon refuses to recognize the device exists in Device Manager. I spent about an hour on the phone with Lenovo tech support who ultimately told me my question was "Out of scope" and something they would not handle. The tech even agreed with my frustration that it's listed right on the **bleep** Lenovo product site: "Mobil [sic] Broadband: Sierra Wireless 7355 - Gobi 5000" and couldn't explain why A) It wasn't working orB) Why Lenovo feels a feature listed on their own marketing materials was "out of scope" for support. She also confirmed the part number is exactly the same and the T440s and the X1 Carbon use the identical part. The tech ultimately speculated that some type of magical "system board upgrade"...

Ever since upgrading the bios from 1.20, booting or rebooting my thinkpad yoga s1 results in a blank screen after initial post. I'm currently on the latest 1.26 bios for the thinkpad yoga and the latest firmware for the onelink pro as well this is similar to someone's post on here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-E-and-Edge/E531-won-t-boot-when-connected-to-OneLi... Called lenovo support and they indicated to downgrade back to 1.17 but read the firmware and after install of latest firmware the lowest firmware I can downgrade to is 1.22 which I tried but it still hangs on boot if the onelink pro is connected during bootup. Anyone else getting this or have a fix? Lenovo, hope you read this and fix the bios, makes the whole point of the dock pretty pointless to me.

Hi there, I have an E450 with Windows 7 64-bit Professional, Enabled and Activated TPM on the BIOS, Enabled BitLocker and waited for encryption to complete.  Few restarts and all working fine. I have installed the latest drivers and firmware for the OneLink Pro, as of today 8/20/2015, from the support website. When I connect the OneLink Pro all works fine, NIC, Video, USB, but then when I restart the machine BitLocker kicks in asking for the Password as if the hardware had changed.  Once enter the password it boots into Windows fine but after each restart it will ask again.  Until you disconnect the docking station then following restart is ok no prompt. I've tried some recommendations like suspending and resuming BitLocker while the docking station is connected and it works, after a restart no prompt for password, but when you disconnect the docking and restart it prompt for the password again and again until you connect the docking or suspend/resume bitlocker. Now, I have an exact configuration with a X1 Carbon 3rd generation, doing exactly the same steps and at the end with the OneLink Pro connected or not when restarting it does not prompt for BitLocker password. Finally, we tested the E450 with the older USB 3.0 DOCK and it worked just fine, connected/restart no BitLocker, disconnected/restart no BitLocker. I was on the phone with Lenovo support for 1 hour and 30 minutes, they kept transfering me from the Hardware dept to...

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga S1 failing to charge on OneLink Dock

I believe it is not the OneLink Dock. I believe it is the Battery Maintenance Setting on your laptop.  See:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/W-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/ThinkPad-W530-gets-quot-Plugged-in-but-not-cha... This explains that the battery should not remain 100% charged plugged-in over the long term (as would occur with the OneLink or the power cable using your laptop like a desktop). Go to Power Manager and the Battery tab  andBattery Maintenance. If your battery maintenance setting is "optimized," it will not begin to recharge until it is below 50%. You can set it to recharge before that. The link above says that the Battery maintenance is under Advanced settings but mine was under Basic.I have a OneLink and mine is doing the same thing. it also does it with the power cable alone. I have only had my E540 for a few days. I will post again if it does not re-charge below 46-50%.

Hello again! Addition: It seems to work with a 19" Hanns.G HW191 screen. Even on higher resolutions (1440x900) used than with the 24" BenQ (tried pretty much every resolution possible), so maybe it's just compatibility with the screen or maximum possible screen size? LG AND BenQ however? Seems weird to me.The 19" is, just like the others were, plugged in via DVI with an HDMI adapter. Any ideas so far? Otherwise we'll have to work with 19" screens, even though it's not very favorable. Best regards,Hypo~

Hi all, I'd like to share my bad experience with Lenovo. I bought two months ago in USA a Thinkpad Yoga and an Onelink Pro Dock. I brought it to Brazil and began to use with minor problems - my external monitor used to flash sometimes, going dark and returning after few seconds. Then I updated the firmware and since then I could never more use an external monitor with the dock. Even though it has an international guarantee, the Brazilian support says they cannot validate my dock and fix it, so it is useless. U$ 180 threw in the garbage. Yesterday a vertical black line appeared in my LCD.  I called the support again and they schedule a visit of a technician to change my LCD. I said I want a new computer, since I bought a brand new expensive computer, and don?t want a refurbished computer two months later. I don?t know how it would be if I was in US, but it look like here in Brazil Lenovo support doesn?t care a lot with their customer. I am very regret for buying a Lenovo. Spent almost U$ 200 in a dock that doesn?t work and U$ 1400 in a brand new computer that will be refurbished two months later. I just bought the Thinkpad because had read it is a reliable and durable notebook, but seems it is not definitely the case. Keep using my 5 years old Sony Vaio and holding papers with my new Lenovo. That?s a shame.

Hello everyone,  I would like to connect 3 external monitors to Yoga 260. I found out that conection of 3 external displays is feasible. It is associated with turning off the native LCD, whcich is OK for me. I would like to use ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (40A40090XX). The docking station has 2 DP and 1 VGA. The issue is I'd rather use 2 DP from docking station and one DP which is on board Yoga instead of VGA. Is such configuration possible? I would like to figure it out before I will buy the station. I've found document: https://support.lenovo.com/uu/en/documents/pd029622 , but there is nothing on using docking stations' DP and native DP in one configuration, simultaneously. Whether it is because on board DP will be disabled? The alternative is MST (eg. http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/multi-stream-transport-mst-hub.html). Both devices are at a comparable price, and if I had confidence that the docking station will work with onboard DP simultaneously, I would choose it.  Thank you in advance, best regardsM

Since no one has replied, I would like close this discussion.  Still someone might benefit for the information, that: - I have purchased and tested ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock- it works with 3 external monitors using 2 DP from docking station and one mini-DP from Yoga itself- working configuration is as follows: 2 displays are connected to OneLink+ Dock with one active DP to DVI converter, one passive DP to DVI converter and the last one (Yogas? port) with active mini-DP to DVI converter- I didn?t try to use for example 2 or 3 passive DP to DVI converters (but I guess that 2 should do the job, but 3 will probably won?t work)- when OneLink+ Dock is attached, the HDMI port in Yoga is not working! (the information one can also find in BIOS, but no materials on-line) Best regards,Maciej

Hello fellow users / Lenovo, In our office we have several X1 Carbons and several ThinkPad USB 3.0 Docks (0A33970) located all over the office. We typically bring our X1 Carbons around and use each other's Dock during the course of work. However, we recently face a problem with the Ethernet interface not working with other Docks, other than the Dock that the driver was installed with. Using other Docks, the Ethernet interface comes up as a generic Ethernet device with a yellow warning triangle inside Control Panel. Using the Dock that the driver was installed with, the Ethernet device works as normal. It should be pretty easy to replicate this behaviour, just get an X1 Carbon (fresh, Windows 8.1) and connect a USB 3.0 Dock to it, and install appropriate drivers.Verify that the Ethernet port works correctly. Next, disconnect the Dock and connect another Dock to the X1 Carbon. Observe that the Ethernet interface does not work, and see the yellow warning triangle icon under Control Panel. Uninstalling and Reinstalling the drivers with the new Dock doesn't work either. Only the Dock that the driver was originally installed with will work.
