I have a ThinkPad X1 Carbon. I am trying to use it with an external HP monitor, but cant get the thing to STAY connected to the monitor.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance.

 

Also, there is some debate on the web about upgrading the ram on this model.

I have a 8GB I'd like to drop in; is that possible ?

Ive given up on the monitor.

I could not figure out how to keep the [bleep] thing on.

I am still interested in finding out about installing more ram; is there a way to find out if it will take more ?
