I'm considering buying a docking station to go with my T but I'm not certain what solution is best for me. However, when I was reading the display configuration options for this dock I came to the conclusion that this does not seem to be possible.
The advantage is that it supports higher resolutions and direct HDMI connectivity. What I read from the display configuration options my configuration should not be an issue. However, I cannot confirm that this dock is compatible with a T Does anyone have experience with this combination of hardware or otherwise can someone confirm this solution is going to work?
I'm going to try this one tonight - the Thurderbolt Dock with my Thinkpad T and I'll try and come back here and let you know Connected to my TB3 dock are dual 27" P monitors 75hz via the 2 displayports at the back. This works perfectly without a hitch. If I want I can also run the display on the laptop as well without issue. I also have a USB mouse and cooling pad connected to the dock as well.
I'd choose the TB3 dock over the other docks such as the ultra dock since it uses TB3 technolgy. I really like how I just need to plug in one TB3 cable in order to connect everything while also charging the laptop. The w charger it comes with is more than powerful to charge the laptop at high speed while providing power to everything connected to the dock.
I only wish the TB3 cable was a bit longer, but they probably included a shorter one because you lose signal transfer when you make the cable longer, unless it is an active cable which is what Lenovo should have included with this dock.
I've had a few instances where some ports don't seem to work when waking from sleep and such, but on the most part it has been quite reliable. I do have the latest firmware installed.
They had 3 monitors hooked up to the dock when it randomly the 3rd monitor connected to VGA stopped working. As far as troubleshooting goes I can't actually do anything hands on because I'm in Pennsylvania and the user is in Wisconsin.
I had the user try different VGA cables and different monitor. Still same result No Signal. He has the same Dock at home and same result no Signal. To me this seems like a software issue more than a hardware issue. I had him Reset Windows to default and still only 2 monitors. I keep getting a message also on the machine.
I have tried to update the firmware on the dock and it ran successfully same with the VGA Drivers. I also updated the Thunderbolt firmware and am still getting the error. That is it, I am saying this with a fair amount of confidence. Is this Windows 7? There's a similar option in XP but I'm not exactly sure where. USB PD is limited to max. DC W. So you should be fine as long as the docking station is able to deliver for charging 45W or 65W respectively.
Generally you may consider Issues 1. Can't seem to make it work.
ThinkPad Pro Docking Station (American Standard Plug)
Couple things I have learned. Windows 10 is worse than windows 7 when it comes to this issue. Yeah so it doesn't get a signal at all, so I can't play with the refresh rates because it won't even see the monitor at all :.I see some old discussions about this, but time has passed and wonder if anyone has had any good results, let alone if anyone other than me is still trying this Had some lag in keyboard entry Could be an issue with the USB drivers?
We had to do a setup similar a while back, the issue we ran in to though was the USB's on the dock itself not detecting anything.
To answer just your topic question, yes, I've run 3 monitors successfully through docking stations. I have 4 devices with similar setup, just 4 screens, plus laptop screen. Was trash setup without manufacturers drivers. One person has odd issues when he let laptop go to sleep then wakeup with it plugged in. Set it to "no device sleep on AC. No reported issues.
Users like is as they just plug in 1 USB 3. Desktop mouse and keyboard plugged into dock. Makes for a nice 5 screen pseudo desktop setup for my part time road warriors. You may want to check for this.
However, most likely some drivers are missing. Especially chipset and USB 3.Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station 40AJ0135US Unboxing
Don't forget to install monitor driver and you may find useful HP Display Assistant. I propose a strange one:. Maybe it's a bit of system resources being hogged by spreading video signals to all 3 screens?
This could theoretically cause a hiccup or slowdown in your OS and the keyboard input but Hope this message finds you well. This happens to be my boss's PC Finally got a chance to make some of the updates you suggested. Displaylink did not want to install correctly, even though the compatability check came through clean. I will have to wait to see if he has any issues after the updates I do not use it enough to see the lag he experiences Thanks for the tips! I will have to see if the other updates resolve the issue or not Bruce "Displaylink did not want to install correctly, Install Microsoft.
NET Framework 4. Unplug the docking station and then uninstall all DisplayLink software using regular uninstaller in Windows. Then try to install the latest version of DisplayLink software. Start the installation without the docking station connected. You should get a prompt to connect the dock during the installation.I'm trying to determine if I can utilize 3 external monitors in addition to the laptop screen.
This works perfect but I'm trying to get a 3rd monitor to work as well. It doesn't work. If I unhook the VGA from the dock one of other monitorsthe 3rd monitor will work as expected. It seems trying a 2nd VGA is causing the issue. Afte that, you can use HDMI port for 3rd monitor. No issues whatsoever. My laptop is connected only with USB type C cable. Any updates? I was not able to use 3 monitors at the same time. Even more weird thing is that two monitors and internal display are working fine but when the laptop is closed HDMI monitor is not receiving any signal.

I was hoping to use 3 external monitors not including the laptop screen. The pro dock only has 2 display ports and the laptop has a HDMI port which i was hoping to all use to get my 3 displays. My setup is 2 VGA external monitors to display port adapters and 1 hdmi monitor to the laptops hdmi port directly. If i un dock the laptop, the HDMI monitor works. Can i not output all 3 at the same time, i know the laptops chipset allows 3 monitors. The Ultra Dock supports 3 monitors, and the Pro Dock supports 2 monitors.
