I have a Dell Inspiron 13 5379 2in1 INTEL CORE i7 8TH GEN 16GB 500GB which is running Windows 10.
I have the Plugable Docking Station Universal USB 3.0
I am running two ASUS VZ239HE-W monitors
Several programmes, Microsoft and Dell ensure I always have the software up to date.
I use the laptop as a server and rarely remove it from its location. I require the laptop lid to be closed to take up less room and to avoid the accumulation of dusk. At the beginning I was able to set the laptop lid to “do nothing when closed” and this worked. However now I have to permanently keep the lid open or the second monitor will not display its screen.
As soon as I close the laptop lid the right hand monitor goes dark and then blue and shows an HDMI no signal message and then it turns black and shows no display.
I would appreciate some help on this.
