I have the Lenovo P52s laptop, which I connect to my Lenovo ThinkPad thunderbolt dock through the provided Thunderbolt 3 cable. I have been having a few issues with the setup, and was looking for some suggestions.
The first issue is that I have an external display (Acer monitor) connected through the HDMI on the back of the dock. While it works the majority of the time, there have been a few times where my laptop doesn't detect the monitor, and I have resolved the issue each time by disconnecting and reconnecting the laptop to the dock a few times, and then it eventually connects to the monitor. There have also been times where it connects, but the monitor loses signal every few seconds for a second or two, and I have resolved that issue the same way. Any ideas? I'd rather not have to unplug and re-plug in the dock as often as I have been.
Also, does anyone know if the 3.5 mm jack on the front of the dock is only for headphones? I was going to connect my Logitech desktop speaker system through there, but sound still plays through my laptop when I plug the speakers in there.
Thanks for any help or suggestions!
