Not sure if this is a problem or just something I don’t know how to do…
I have 4 pluggable USB3-HDMI-DVI adapters with a 4 Port pluggable USB 3 hub.
When I connect all the adapters to the hub and the hub to my Windows 8.1 laptop, all 4 monitors become active which is great.
The issue I have come across is when I right click on the desktop and then select Screen Resolution I can see the monitors with their corresponding position numbers. When I click on identify, the monitors show their identification numbers (1 through 4) however they are in different positions physically than what shows on the screen. I know I can drag them around on the screen to where they should be and then hit apply however when I move the mouse pointer to that screen the mouse pointer goes to a different screen then it should.
I managed to get the mouse to move to each screen smoothly from left to right however I had to drag the screens to different positions.
My screens should be 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 as per the Screen Resolution page however when I click on identify they are 2 - 3 - 1 - 4. Why is this? I don’t understand why they are showing up in different positions. Is this a Windows issue or a Displaylink driver issue?
I upgraded from the driver that windows update downloads to the 7.7.60366.0 however it did not resolve the strange positioning.
Any tips on how to correct this as it is super confusing.
