I have had my P71 for some time and I recently bought an Akito Node. In it, I have a 1050ti and sometimes I can get this to work, othertimes not. I have updated the thunderbolt 3 drivers, and have installed both the discrete graphics/1050ti graphics drivers, and flashed the akito node with the most up-to-date firmware.
However, this only works I would say a good quarter of the time.
What happens, is: I plug it in, I can't project onto the screen. The graphics card is running.
On a whim, I'll install the drivers again. Sometimes this works, othertimes it doesn't. I try a pattern of rebooting my laptop and all, and at most it takes 30 minutes of nonstop installation of drivers/ rebooting for it to work.
The best part? If the thunderbolt 3 cable comes loose (which it often does), it stops working and I have to repeat the process I was wondering if there's a solution to this.
