I have a new P51s for work. I also have a Dell D6000 universal dock with USB-C connection. Will the two work together and if so, what do I need to do to make this work. I am running Windows 7 on the laptop per the company requirements. I have downloaded and installed the driver from the Dell website. The problem that I currently have is that it sometimes works and other times it does not. I am not sure if I have my BIOS settings correct.
It 100% of the time charges but it is hit or miss with video. I have a ViewSonic HDMI 24" monitor connected to the dock and as I have mentioned, it sometimes works like now and other times just the laptop screen flickers until I unplug.
I don't have the money to purchase a Lenovo Dock at this point and I am trying to make do if at all possible.

Did you try the latest dock frmware upgrade, and not just W10 device driver?
From Dell forum:
"Dell recently released a firmware upgrade for the docking station... if you are having issues, you may need to consider updating the firmware; it takes an incredibly long time to upgrade and may have to be attempted more than once. For Windows devices, be sure to download the appropriate drivers; they can be downloaded from Dell's D6000 Support page or universal drivers from Display Link can also be used."
