  1. Stuttering every 5 seconds with multiple monitors connected through docking station


    I'm not sure if this is due to hardware, Windows 10 OS, or drivers, but I have found similar reports after a bit of internet searching.


    I have Dell Precision 3510 laptop with switchable AMD graphics. I also have 2 additional 1600x1200 monitors connected with DVI through a Dell E-series docking station. When I configure a 2nd or 3rd monitor to extend my desktop across multiple monitors, I experience stuttering EXACTLY every 5 seconds, the interval being confirmed with a stopwatch (easiest to observe when video is playing). The stutter is more severe when I extend the desktop across 3 monitors rather than 2 monitors, but in both cases, it occurs EXACTLY every 5 seconds. When I extend across only 2 monitors, the stutter occurs no matter if I use the laptop's built-in display and 1 external monitor, or disable the laptop display and use both external monitors.


    To my knowledge I am currently using Intel graphics and haven't tried to reproduce the issue with AMD graphics enabled.


    What could be going on?

    :)

    DVI not working on extended monitor with Surface Book docking station

    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.
