Symptom - No video on external monitor after docking system while lid is open. When connecting dock connector to laptop while laptop lid is open, the laptop monitor flickers, like its trying to adjust the resolution set in the display properties and i don't get any video to external monitor. This behavior will continue until I disconnect the dock connector cable. My Windows display settings is set to extend montior.
My work around. Close the laptop lid (while laptop is powered on), connect the Dock connector and open the laptop lid. Video to external montior and laptop function as design using this sequence but I can't get video on laptop or external monitor while connecting the dock connector when the laptop lid is open.
This behavior started yesterday aftering returing from meeting.
