I’ve purchased the USB 3.0 Docking Station UD-3000 to connect to my new Lenovo Thinkpad Helix (Windows 8 Pro). The DisplayLink driver (May 10 release) installed fine and I can use the USB ports, ethernet, and use an external monitor… but it renders my Helix unusable. Unable to launch any programs, Task Manager, or Display Settings. Nada. The app icons in the “All Apps” Metro view are blank. Can’t shutdown without holding the power button down for 5 seconds.
I did this a few times before I disconnected the UD-3000, rebooted, and the laptop worked great. Uninstalled the DisplayLink software and now everything is fine.
I searched but didn’t see anything specific about Windows 8 installations. I’m *really* hoping to get this working because I want to get a second docking station for my home office. Please advise.
