Monitors off after sign in to Windows from lock screen



I am using docking station for my Yoga 260 and sometimes when I sign in to Windows (the notebook is locked by shortcut win+l) from lock screen both monitors are still off. I have to reconnect the dock and then it's both monitors are OK again.


Any ideas how to fix it? It's quite annoying because positions of all windows are lost and I have to rearrange them again.

Re: Monitors off after sign in to Windows from lock screen



Can you please share the full model number of your Yoga 260 and the model of the dock you are using?


My first guess will be to try to update the firmware (BIOS) of the Thinkpad and the dock (if applies) since I noticed that with some docks (onelink) there are some important firmware updates.


My second guess will be to check (according to the dock) which video drivers does it use (DisplayLink?) and try to update those drivers.


If you post the full model numbers I can check the links.
