I just setup my Plugable USB 3 docking station and cannot get the video to work. I first hooked up my monitor using a DVI to HDMI cable(my screen only has HDMI or VGA) . In fact I have tried two different cables like this to no avail. I then tried using VGA (with the provided DVI to VGA adapter) and briefly had it working. I then tried the DVI/HDMI again, not luck, then switched back to VGA…and now I am getting nothing no matter what I do. There is a chance that my monitor’s HDMI is not working as I don’t know that I have ever had success with HDMI. For now, I would be happy with getting VGA to work.
I’ve restarted the computer, restarted the docking station, restarted the monitor, checked the device manager for bad drivers…all in different orders. I have a USB 3 external hard drive, keyboard, and a USB microphone plugged into the dock, all work great. However sound is still playing through the laptop’s speakers.
Just to be sure, I hooked my laptop directly up to the monitor via VGA and that works great.
