  1. Multiple displays not working with a docking station


    I can always connect one monitor at a time, but once I connect a second, both displays go black #3 and #2, #1 and #4 are the laptop screens. What does it mean that #2 is grayed out?

    1. I cannot connect to home Wi-Fi off the docking station but not on docking station.
    2. When i'm on docking station system says i'm connected to home Wi-Fi, but when i browse says not connected.
    3. Other devices connected to home Wi-Fi has no issue.
    4. What steps can i take to resolve the issue other than updating Wi-Fi adapter driver?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.


    • Make sure the power light for the docking station is on

    • Make sure the monitor is getting power

    • Make sure the cable is connected properly to the monitor

    • Unplug and reconnect the Mini-DVI adapter on the back of your docking station

    • Try flipping the connector for the adapter over (turns out some adapters can go in upside-down)

    • Take the Surface out of the docking station then put it back in


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

  4. Multiple displays not working with a docking station

    display problem with docking station

    The display on docking station is not working since i upgraded to windows 10.

    I have a kensington USB dock with that i am using with my ThinkPad.

    I was using win 7 Pro, and the docking station was working perfectly fine.

    After i upgraded to Win 10, the display on the dock has stopped working. All other devices/functions (keyboard, mouse, LAN, other usb devices) attached to the dock are working. Win 10 is not detecting the 2nd screen/display device.

    Anyone else facing similar problem? Have you found any solution to this?

    As a temporary arrangement, i have connected the 2nd monitor to the laptop video out.

    Have also written to kensington, about the issue.
