I have 4 of these Lenovo 10G9001UUS recently put into service, we use them for monitoring so there is no external display connected. These are the mini PC models running Windows 7 Pro. Screen Connect will only display a black screen when connecting to these units with no external display. I have tried different settings, wondering if anyone else had any experience with headless issues on Windows.

As an FYI, I have plenty of headless HP Desktops and they work just fine.

Any suggestions would be great.

I believe that symptoms you're experiencing is due to the Lenovo not detecting a display attached to the machine, and therefore keeping the video adapter in some sort of low power mode which is preventing it from generating the display that Control captures.

A device similar to this may resolve your issues: https://www.amazon.com/E...3840x2160/dp/B07549TTSF/

I had a similar issue with a couple Asus VivoStick's. I connected via SC, waited for it to load, then connected with the HDMI and configure display mirroring ("displayswitch.exe /clond"). Disconnect the HDMI again and now after several reboots it keeps the 1080p resolution when connecting via SC.
