ThinkPad T580: External Monitor Flickering and/or snow effect with ThinkPad Docking Station

Hello everyone,


I have the case that I have problems with three ThinkPads T580. External screens go out, or a snow effect occurs
The screens are connected to ThinkPad docking station with two DisplayPort connectors
BIOS 1.21 (N27ET35W)
Intel Graphics Driver
Docking Sation:
Firmware Version ThinkPad Docking Station FW Utility 3.1

                    ThinkPad Pro Docking Station FW Utility 3.1
                    PD controller: DA.0.1.8
                    USB hub: 5043/5033
                    DP Hub: 5.03.005
                    USB Audio: 12

Windows 10 1809

Every driver and firmware is up to date. The flicker occurs also in the POST and BIOS. I changed the docking station (same FW Version) and cable. Other monitors are affected. When i connect the Notebook directly via HDMI with one Monitor, i have no problems. This concerns at least three devices. So it seems that the Docking Staion ist the problem

Any suggestions?


With kind regard,
