T430S on thinkpad mini dock plus series 3 - stop re-detecting monitors on redocking

2017-08-11, 0:34 AM

Have been happily running windows 10 - with dual monitors, but since a recent update, the system once re-docked will no longer re-detect that it using different monitors.


Previously i could use it:

1. Un-docked - at 1600 x 900

2. then when i put it to sleep

3. Then dock it and resumed:

     it would

     a) switch to 1920 x 1080, and

     b) also detect and display on the second monitor - no intervention required.


Now, it remains in it's prior "state" (it neither changes state nor outputs to the second monitor) - only outputting to the first external monitor - but at 1600 x 900.


Thus since a recent change, it is not "re-detecting" the "change in state" on resume, ONLY when i now do a full restart.


The update may have been a Windows update, but on the same day i also installed a Toshiba Dynadock - with dual display port support.


I have used the Lenovo system update to update the driver - now it is at - and as the driver loaded the monitors re-detected, and corrected - but later the problem is persisting.


Does anyone know how to force the driver to re-detect on resume not just on restart? Or is this a "consequence of doing things in a certain order"
