BIOS provides most basic low-level hardware operations; it is the connection between software and hardware, and interfacing window of hardware and operating system.

Hi Dawson, thanks for posting! We had worked with you via our direct support email but I will just post a response publicly below.

Unfortunately, after the most recent BIOS update and running the most recent Windows Updates we still do not recommend our USB-C docking stations for use with the Yoga 900 system as we are unable to display using the USB-C port.

Thank you,
