Hi. I have a Lenovo Legion Y5 that has an HDMI port and an USB C port (and from what I read on the Internet, this port is able to connect the laptop to an external monitor) and I also have an Samsung Smart M5 that has 2 HDMI ports (one is ARC, not sure if that helps me) and two USB A ports.

What I wanted to do is to connect my keyboard and mouse to the Samsung Monitor on the USB A ports and connecting one HDMI on the monitor to the USB C port (or the HDMI port if that works too) on the laptop and then to be able to use the keyboard and the mouse on the laptop.

I know that this is possible to do on some monitors, I'm just not sure how to do this on mine and I wouldn't want to spend money on an adapter/cable for it to not work xD

Thanks in advance

My USB dock does charge my laptop (see picture, the only thing connected to the laptop is the dock with usb-C), use the correct powersupply (mine is 65W). the hub should have something like "PD-charging".
Ah. There you go. :)

So all issues solved. :) (But now a second power cable goes behind the monitor if you are backmounting the hub.. ;) )

    Umm...I think you might have the wrong person, since that may as well have been written in Chinese. I have nothing to do with the management of this site, nor have I ever been involved. I'm just a member, and hardly even qualify as that...like I said my last post was almost a year ago lol

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
