Do not update to DisplayLink version 7.9M3 on Windows 10, your displays will stop functioning.
DisplayLink just auto updated to version 7.9M3 on Windows 10. My displays stopped functioning and would not start working again, even though the dock was properly recognized in Device Manager. Uninstall current version and return to version 7.9M2 and your displays will begin working again. DisplayLink needs to address this issue.
V7.9 M3 is required to be compatible with the latest Intel and NVIDIA graphics drivers on Windows 10.
If you are having issues, please let us know through the contact area of the support site, including as much information as possible and your DisplayLink log files so we can look into it further.
i am also having issues with 7.9m3 with Windows 10 and the latest 4329 drivers from intel, when my yoga 900 goes to sleep, i find it has rebooted when i come back...
Just posted a support ticket. Upgraded to 7.9M3 prior to OS upgrade. My screen freezes under W8.1 and requires USB port unplugging. Upgraded OS to W10 and got exactly the same problem after 20 mins
DisplayLink 7.9 M3 does NOT work with my Windows 10 Version.. "DisplayLink_7.9M3.exe".. Does not work, will NOT install. So I'm out having a 2nd monitor.. Thanks.. Aluratek..
We have a monitor connected to the displaylink. When Win10 puts the displays to sleep, the monitor shuts down and the DisplayLink forgets the settings for the monitor. Restoring the driver to 7.9M2 saves the display information even if the display is off and even after the power is cycled. But Win10 insists on replacing driver 7.9M2 with 7.9M3. So now, when the monitor is off, I unplug the DisplayLink - when I turn the mkonitor on, I have to plug the DisplayLink in again, but Win10 has moved icons around. Make 7.9M4 so it remembers the last settings it read from the monitor, just like 7.9M2 does.

With 7.9M3 release the displays remain black when you start your computer.
Configuration: Toshiba dynadock, ASUS K501LX Windows 10, two connected displays.
A workaround (weird): shake the mouse during the boot: the mouse cursor appears on the laptop screen, then the 2 screens initialize correctly.
It would be much better with software that works properly.
