Duplicate monitors in Windows 8 (USB 3.0 docking station)


hi, I have Windows 8 and using Plugable USB3.0 (Lenovo Yoga) I plugged in my Dell monitor using a DVI cable into Plugable docking station. also plugged in my keyboard, mouse (USB 2.0), speakers (into the microphone jack and a USB 3.0 external drive inot the USB 3.0 port on the docking station. the problem I have is on the 2nd (Dell) screen, I can only see a windows task bar and none of the other browser windows. Also my mouse does not seem to work on the Dell monitor. I set it up for duplicate screens in Windows.
