Dual external monitors for Thinkpad T43s with Thunderbolt 3 dockingstation

2021-01-26, 19:52 PM

I am experincing problems to set up dual external monitors for Thinkpad T43s with Thunderbolt 3 dockingstation GEN 2 (40AN).

 

I am running  27" BenQ monitor with 2560x1440 resolution - it works fine.

Then if I attach a second monitor (DELL 24") this one comes out nicely with 1920x1200 resolution

But my main 27" (BenQ) monitor gets blurry and the resultion is down to 1920x1080. 

 

Only after I disconnect the 24" DELL monitor will the 27" BenQ come back to its original 2560x1440 resolution.

 

Any solution to this, it is difficult to operate the 27"monitor 1920x1080?

Good luck with the dock. This dock, for me anyway, is almost more trouble than it is worth. I have been hoping that Lenovo would release reliable firmware since December of 2019.

No problem here. Same dock. P43s. Running 27" 4K at 60Hz and 24" 1080p at 60Hz. You have the right cables in the right slots on the dock?
