X1 Carbon connected to a Dell XPS 2720 - Display Issues

2014-06-06, 3:40 AM



I just got an X1 that is connected to my Dell XPS 2720 as a 2nd display. This is connected via the Onelink Dock.  I have tons of little green dots on black screens.  I only get this when i'm connected to the Lenovo/one dock .  The Dell by itself is fine and the X1 by itself is fine.  


Any suggestions?

I have a brand new X1 Carbon too and I have the same issue.  When directly connected to the laptop HDMI port the output on my Lenovo monitor is fine, however when connected to HDMI port on the OneLink I get these green dots like you do.

I am a former employee not a support professional so any help I offer here is as a fellow user.
