I purchased this device to be able to quickly switch all my peripherals from my work laptop (HP Elitebook) to my personal laptop (Dell Inspiron 7306 2n1).
Everything works fine with the HP. But I cannot get the hub to work with my Dell for more than 60 seconds at a time.
I’m using my laptop display + 2 displays with DP cables (3 total displays including laptop)
I have tried every thing recommended in https://support.plugable.com/t/displays-stopped-working-properly/20400
It will set up and work ok briefly. then I lose all peripherals and external monitors - the system makes the “doink” sound. It will stay like that for a minute, hesitate and then switch everything on like before.
It does not say set more than about a minute at a time.
Again, everything works PERFECTLY when connected to the HP. The Dell is just unbearable.
I’ve managed to get it working for a little using a HDMI cable for the 2nd external monitor. But when I unplugged, switched over to the HP (where it again worked perfectly) and then switched back to the Dell it did the SAME THING
Unplugged the 2nd monitor - and SAME THING even with just the one monitor plugged in.
So I disconnected from the computer, disconnected the power & rebooted the hub. Powered it up and plugged back in to the Dell (with just one external) monitor SAME THING
I’m about ready to send the %^&( thing back!
