t420 - 2 Monitors - Docking Station

So at work I just received a new t420 2 monitors and a docking station.  I took it home the first night then came in and expecting the display settings to be as they were.  The problem is the scaling goes to Maintain Display Scaling and I want it to default to Scale Full Screen

I created a profile thinking it would recognize the profile while being docked.  Is there any solutions to this, other than every morning loading that profile?  

As a side note in my company we are deploying these t420's right now and a lot of people are going to start having this issue and its my job as the IT deployment tech to make sure this is taken care of sooner than later.

Re: t420 - 2 Monitors - Docking Station

hey gunmetal,

as the company of yours is deploying the T420's , is it installed with specific company-typed software ? It might be the reason.

Anyway, try testing the unit with one monitor without the docking station and then unit+1monitor+docking station.

also run the same test after uninstaling the video driver and letting windows install its generic video driver.
