  1. Monitors randomly blacking out - SOLVED

    If your monitors are blacking out using your DisplayLink D3100 check your chair.

    I was having issues with my dual monitors randomly blacking out. After updating s/w, drivers and replacing the D3100 nothing worked.

    As strange as it sounds, I was finally able to determine the cause was my chair. I have documented this in two videos.

  5. Resolve the compatibility issue with Duet Display, Twomon, Spacedesk, etc.

    After I purchased a USB Type C dock driven by DisplayLink technology for my laptop, a big issue derived: every time I want to use Duet Display with my iPad Pro or Twomon USB with my Pixel C, I would have to uninstall the DisplayLink driver before I plug any of my tablets. When I get home and try to connect to my dock, I would have to go through the setup process again. This is just a big inconvenience for people like me.

  6. Add support for Ubuntu 16.10

    Ubutun 16.10 is just days away and the DisplayLink drivers don't work for it and cause X to crash.

    I’m marking this complete, as Windows 10 Anniversary update has the best compatibility for DisplayLink. This is due to a new interface for DisplayLink graphics developed between DisplayLink and Microsoft being available, as covered here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/525125

    This thread is becoming a place for any user to post problems on Windows 10, hence marking it complete, rather than people expecting the problem they are seeing is being worked on. If you have problems getting the device to work on Windows 10, please refer to this article, and if this does not solve the issue, please contact us:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/942862

    The original idea for this was to improve application compatibility with DisplayLink on Windows 10 under the new architecture. This is something we are looking into, with Microsoft. It is caused because DisplayLink now appears as its own video driver, rather than part of existing video cards. This means applications that use a…

  8. Please allow the DisplayLink Driver to be disabled.

    As someone who uses a dedicated GPU in alternation with the Integrated GPU. It is BEYOND frustrating when my Nvidia GPU will not switch on because of the DisplayLink driver software. There is no option in windows itself to turn it off, and there is nothing provided by DisplayLink either.

    It cripples productivity when I have to UNINSTALL the DL driver just to use my dedicated GPU.

    Please fix this before you guys release any additional updates as this has been going on for a LONG time now.

    I love my AOC usb monitor. It's great, only after I install…

  10. Make DisplayLink drivers work with suspend on Ubuntu

    My DisplayLink-attached screen went awry after resuming from suspend, and I see that it's a known issue. Not being able to use suspend on a laptop is a major loss of functionality for me.

  11. 3 Monitor Support on Chrome OS

    As DisplayLink support is not embedded in the ChromeOS 51 build and later, you should add 3+ monitor support for ChromeOS. At this point someone would only be able to run it off of a Chromebook/Chromebox with higher ram (8-16GB+). But adding this support would mean A LOT more business use cases being satisfied.

    DisplayLink imposes no limit on the number of DisplayLink enabled displays that can be connected on Chrome OS from R51 onwards.

    Any limitations found will be OS restrictions rather than something added by DisplayLink.

  13. Fix your product links.

    Clicking on your link to the amazon page for the AOC e1659Fwux- Pro sends an infinite amount of links due to not having an H at the beginning of the web address in the code.

  15. Fix the Linux driver so that it doesn't use 5-15% CPU when my DisplayLink device is _unplugged_.

    When unplugged, I consistently (and continuously, not just short spikes) see the DisplayLinkManager process take up 5-15% CPU. I don't understand why it's using so much CPU when there's literally nothing for it to do. It's really hurting my battery life & performance.

  16. TrayIcon should always display if installed

    Suggestion: The DisplayLink Manager TrayIcon should show even if the hardware is not detected. In that case, it should provide links to helpful KB articles (or better yet, include the troubleshooting steps offline).

    That would have saved me about three hours of troubleshooting a 3rd-party (LizTek) product before I finally stumbled on this site.

  20. HI, Let customers decide WHEN to install new drivers. (Automatic driver update messes up my 4 + 1 monitor trading station.) Thanks.

    (the automatic updates re-arrange and resize everything on my screens causing me headache. The driver should be updater when no windows left opened / programmes running.)
