My AlienWare M17x keeps crashing when I use the Plugable UGA-2K-A. It worked fine until the last 3 months. I updated my video drivers (which are from NVIDIA and Intel) and then the problems started. I had to uninstall the DisplayPort software completely to stop the computer from freezing and having blue screens.
My computer was also failing to shut-down or bootup if the adapter was plugged in.
The adapter worked great until the video driver updates a few months ago.
Any ideas? Any planned updates for the DisplayPort software that could address this problem?
