  1. Windows 10 with 7.9M3 (Yoga 900)

    When windows 10 with 7.9M3 on a yoga 900 goes to sleep and is connected to the dock, it doesn't come back.

    Also, if I unplug the dock when the laptop sleeps, when I wake it up nothing works anymore.

    • add support for the VMWare SVGA Driver so that virtual machine guests can use display link

      When using virtual machines it would be really handy to have them display via usb adapters on spare monitors or PIP overlays in fancy monitors.

      Many virtualisation engineers would be buying your products, many times.

      • Don't require drivers to be installed for disabled display adapters

        I have a machine with an integrated display adapter and a PCI adapter running Windows 10. The integrated controller is not supported by Windows 10 and I have disabled it using device manager (I don't have an option to disable it in BIOS). When I attempt to install the DisplayLink core software, it re-enables the disabled adapter and then tells me it cannot install the software because there are no drivers for the adapter that I had disabled.

            • Can you fix the issue with dual graphics cards?

              I have had a problem with your displaylink products for months now, it's causing my entire OS to hand. It seems I'm not the only one, I found the below forum post showing multiple people have the same issue.
              http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=63963

              I've tried cleanups, reinstalling the latest drivers and all I could think of. The only way I can get the system to stop crashing is if I always reboot my PC right after I disconnect display link each and every time which is ridiculous. I wouldn't buy a laptop if I wanted to reboot 5 times a day.

              There is…

              • Repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting (STILL)

                I'm running an ASUS ROG G56jk-EB72 Gaming Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10 (As of 11/12/2015) 64-Bit. CPU: Intel (R) HD Graphics 4600 & GPU: Nvidea GeForce GTX 850M. Trying to project onto two additional Insignia displays using two Targus USB 3.0 to HDMI HDTV Video Adapter. So I spent about $300 for the displays and $160 on the video adapters and this doesn't even work. I am beyond frustrated. All of my drivers are up to date. I followed the steps as instructed by the troubleshooting page; "How to fix your DisplayLink product from repeatedly disconnecting and…

                  • Support Windows 10 Mobile Continuum

                    In the MS world, Disply Link support is good when running Windows on a laptop or a tablet. When it comes to Windows phones. it is the opposite: nothing, nada.

                    Ask Microsoft, They are so in need of trendy feature to boost their market share in mobile phone business, I am ready to bet they would finance the development.

                        • Use GPU rendering to lower CPU usage

                          Can we access the GPU to take advantage of OpenGL, etc, to avoid the heavy CPU (and laptop battery) usage?

                            DisplayLink software already checks the CPU and GPU resources available on a platform and uses these to provide the best user experience possible.

                            This is why some compatibility issues can be resolved by updating to the latest graphics drivers available for your primary graphics card,

                          • Instead of simply crashing, alert the user to a monitor hardware malfunction

                            I recently found out through a very circuitous process that my monitor is failing. But in this process, instead of alerting me to any issue, the drivers would crash and the icon would disappear from my system tray, making me think your software was malfunctioning. Instead, such a crash should be caught with exception handling, and then alert the user there is a hardware malfunction.

                                        • Update Monitors Page

                                          http://www.displaylink.com/shop/monitors

                                          Many of the displaylink monitors listed on your page are no longer available. Can you mark them as such to make it easier for your customers?

                                          Also, wouldn't it make sense to include the monitor SIZE in each description instead of making your customers search for them?

                                            Thanks for the reminder. The monitors page is now updated to remove products that were no longer available.
                                            We are looking at a redesign of the shop at the moment to allow product searches and adding a monitor size is something we could do at this point.
