It has HDMi output, but not input. It will output to a HD tv or monitor with HDMi input, but you cannot input anything into the notebook, check the Lenovo website.

I cant seem to get my lenova ideapad to work on flatscreen

Are you using HDMI to connect? In my experience, given a video or audio problem related to home theater, HDMI is responsible 9/10 times. First of all, make sure your TV is set to be displaying the HDMI port your computer is plugged into (can usually changed with the INPUT button on the TV remote). Most laptops have a key that looks like a screen on it. In may be printed in a different color on one of the F1-F12 keys; that just means you need to use the Fn key to activate it. This key opens the Windows display mode chooser dialog. It has some options, all of which I can't recall off the top of my head. I believe they are None, Laptop Only, Projector Only, Mirror, and Extend. Keep in mind that this method is not restricted to projectors (though it would work with them as well), and should also work with your TV. You'll want to choose either Mirror or Extend, depending on your preference. Try both and choose the one that works best for you.

If either I wasn't clear enough or totally missed the mark, just tell me and I'd be happy to fix the issue. ;-)

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.

Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter


S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

My lenovo ideapad y560's monitor won't open. the monitor is pitched black.

Hi thelzy,

I see that your Lenovo Y560 is having issues showing no Video, you mentioned that you only get a Black screen when booting.

I am assuming that there is still power on the machine but no video at all, Just to ask do you still see the Lenovo Splash screen? if not then we can try doing a power cycle on the machine.

* Remove the battery on the system unhook the Power Cord/AC adapter as well then press and hold down the power button of your Y560 Laptop for about 15 seconds then let go.

*After Doing the Power Cycle connect the AC Adapter again but leave the battery out for the time being then turn the compute ON, check to see if it will show the Lenovo Splash screen if it does then we're in progress and should show windows Loading up on the LCD screen.

*If it does not show the lenovo Splash screen then most probably the BIOS screen never showed as well on the issue.

*Connect the battery back n the machne turn it ON again check if it will show anything on the screen, if not then see below.

*We can try connecting an external mnitor to the system using a VGA connection it should show us the Screen on the external monitor if not then it means that Windows as well is not booting on your Laptop.

*Check the indicator Lights on the Laptop, one of the Lights will be a cylinder icon on the Laptop check if there is any activity from that light if there is no Light or any avtivity to any of the indicator lights then your Y560 is having issue with the Motherboard.

I hope this info Helps.

Have a nice day.

I have y560 lenova idea pad with TV tuner.i want BIGTV connect to laptop

Hi krahul17,

I see that you want to connect a BigTV to your Y560 Laptop, I can give you a few details on what you can do to conenct a bBig TV to your Laptop.

- Your Y560 has an HDMI port on it and you can use HDMI to connect an LCD TV to your Y560 Laptop.

- In Windows7 lower right side of your task bar you will see the speaker icon right click on it and it will give you options, see below image.

- Click on Playback Devices

- You should see the sound window inside the window you will see a list of audio devices on your system, you should see your HDMI first on the List with a Picture of an LCD TV next possibly will be your speaker which is set as the Default device the last should be Realtek High Definition audio device.

- Right click on the HDMI and select set as Default Device once set as default device your HDMI video and audio should work but if you connected your Laptop to the TV before you changed this settings you will need to restart you Laptop for the changes to take effect on your system and also make sure that the input for your TV is also set to HDMI to make everytihng work.

- And if you will be going back to using you Laptop only you may need to go back to the sound window to set the speakers as your Default device to make the audio come out from your Laptop Speakers.

I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern, have a nica day.

My lenovo y560 i5 hangs every hour. nothing i can do, only pushing the power button for 10 seconds helps me to restart the computer. what could it be?

You can try to go Safe Mode with Networking by restarting the system then tap F8. Then you need to download the latest graphic driver on Lenovo Website. Click here. and Latest driver from ATI. Click here. This is a known issue with y560 using switchable graphic.

Thanks for using Fixya.
