Hi JoséJorge.

 

Welcome to our community forums.

 

We'd like to know few things:

 

- What is the graphics card you're using?

- Where did you get the Thunderbolt Software version 17.4.75.500?

Controller 17.4.78.21

- Are you getting the black screen as soon as you connect the Rog Station?

 

Keep us posted.

-The graphic card is an Nvidia 1060(ASUS NVIDIA GeForce DUAL-GTX1060-6G 6 GB GDDR5 Memory 192 Bit 8008 MHz PCI Express 3 Graphics Card)

-I got the drivers from lenovo support page (n22ta0aw.exe)

-as soon as i connect the rog station i get a windows message to check compatibility, and redirects me here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4012609/windows-10-fix-usb-c-problems#

 

Note:

under Device Manager -> System Devices -> USB appears Asus ROG XG Station 2.

I also tried this.

 

 Thanks in advance, and it would be great if i can make this work.

Finally solved it. The problem was i was plugging the cable to the wrong connector, i needed to connect it to the internal thunderbolt connector (the one used by lenovo dock station)
