    Dual NEC Monitors Unstable - Win10 Pro, Dell5580 w/DS3100 Dock


    I just received a new laptop from work. IT delivered it, configured it for dual monitor display and it lost this the first time the screen saver became active. Detect does not work, identify can. I read the tutorial, yet found nothing significant with regard to the issues I experience. My need is for extended desktop because, the resolution on the monitors exceeds that of the laptop panel.

    Can this be configured such that only the two external monitors are being utilized? I am used to seeing this feature used in a manner such that the laptop panel is off or disabled.

    Note the laptop connects to the DS3100 dock via USB. The dock must be powered via AC adapter and the mouse, keyboard, and both NEC MultiSync LCD225WNXM are plugged into the dock. Every time I turn the laptop on I obtain different results.

    I have administrative rights on the laptop. Apparently, all employess that receive laptops are granted administrative privileges.

    Please let me know if you have any useful ideas for me to improve this situation. I am finding it disturbs me from working effectively.

    :)

    Dual Monitor Issue on SP3 with Win 10

    I have a Surface Pro 3 and I just upgraded to Win10.

    I was running dual 4K monitors via HDMI and connected to the SP3 docking station via the two display ports. Last week when running Win8.1, I had 3 monitors, the two external 4K monitors and then SP3 screen.

    Today, after upgrading to Win10. Only one external monitor shows up and the SP3 screen. I tested that both monitors are working properly, but when going into display settings on Win10. It doesn't even show the third monitor; second external one.

    ANyone have any suggestions as to why this is and what the fix is?

    different displays on dual monitors

    I am running dual BenQ monitors from my surface pro 4 dock.

    Despite identical setting on the monitors themselves, the displays are different.

    Its very had to read text right hand monitor.

    changing the cables doesn't make a difference.

    Help!

    At the moment I have all (3) panels on. Regardless of which panels become active, the working screen is always the laptop/built in display. If either or, both, of the external panels come on they only show the desktop image; nothing more.
