Black screens laptop and externals

Hi this very anoing problem and it consume 8 hours and still in first bace.
This morning I boot it up the laptop and I had the laptop with black screen blinking pointer and the 2 externals black also
The only way to get the laptop back to normal is to unistall the DisplayLink and the nVidia graphics card software and install on safe mode then renstall the Displaylink again but as soun as i plug the external because the software ask for, black screens again.
I have no clue…Thanks Mike
