I’m using Windows 7 and have two significant issues as I try to setup my new Plugable docking station …
I am trying to extend my monitor to display to an external monitor. But while I’ve tried every configuration setting for the display, the best I get is a brief flash of the extended desktop (i.e., wallpaper) on the external monitor. Even if I try to “Duplicate” the display, the signal to the external monitor (HPvs17e) will only flash briefly and is gone by the time I hit “Apply” or “Revert”. The fact that I can catch a glimpse of it before the monitor goes dark again and that the Display drop=down recognizes the make/model of the monitor tells me it’s connected, but why can’t it push a constant signal?
I have an external HD (Simpletech) connected by USB to the docking station but there is no sign of it on my laptop. I have turned the drive on/off unplugged/replugged but the laptop doesn’t know it’s there.
Thinking I may be returning this since those are the two main functions I was interested in.
