Dual display not working with Dell E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with USB 3.0 - E7450

Q: Dual display not working with Dell E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with USB 3.0 - E7450

Here is my situation,
I own a Lattitude E7450, and needed to connected two displays to it. I went ahead and bought the Dell E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with USB 3.0, since it has 2 DVI ports on the back. It shows it is compatible with my laptop.
I set up my dock, connected my laptop, as well as both external monitors. Only one monitor shows a duplicated desktop. When I go into the display settings, I cannot see any existence of another external display being connected.
All of my drivers are up to date, restarted laptop many times. Pretty bummed out.
Anyone have any solution/knowledge to this?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I recently started using the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with my Latitude E7450, but the headphones are not working. Sound comes from the laptop itself, even when the headphones are plugged into the dock or laptop. The headphones work with other devices, and the laptop works with the headphones when it is not docked.

Has anyone had any issues with the Precision 7510 only outputting through one DisplayPort output on the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator?Our organization recently started to introduce Precision 7510 units to our employees, and we're finding that they will only output to one single monitor connected via DisplayPort through the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicators - even though there are two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs on the E-Port Plus APR. If the monitors are connected via DVI, the Precision 7510 is able to output to both of them through the E-Port Plus APR. We have tried Precision M4800, Latitude E7450, and Latitude E7470 units in these E-Port Plus APR's with two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs - and they all work correctly.The Precision 7510 units have the NVIDIA Quadro M1000M video cards, and the E-Port Plus APR's are connected to either a pair of P2417 monitors or a pair of U2414 monitors.

I have a Dell Latitude E7450 laptop with a E-Port Plus II port replicator connected to two external monitors using DisplayPort which will not output to multiple monitors.
I have another Dell model and when placed on the port replicator with two external monitors connected, booting into BIOS/UEFI the screen is cloned onto each monitor. However, when doing the same with a brand new Dell Latitude E7450 only one screen is active - the other is off. Within Windows itself, I can only have 1 monitor connected to the port replicator. If I undock, I can run 3 monitors independently indicating an issue with the dock rather than a hardware limitation with the laptop itself.
I believe the above tests eliminates the OS or driver issue and highlights a compatibility issue between the new Dell Latitude E7450 laptop and E-Port Plus II port replicator. I have tried this on 2 separate machines with the same results. I have also updated both the graphics drivers (Version, A16) and the BIOS (Version A04) to the latest releases. I have also tried using DVI cables as well as swapping out the port replicators. Nothing works. In Windows 8.1 itself, it actually shows as two monitors active, but one is not on. If I swap out the monitors to a different brand, I get the same result.
Is there a BIOS/UEFI setting I need to change? Is there a newer port replicator or update I need?

I have been using a toshiba tecra with the advanced port replicator III plus. using dual monitor (simply plugging a normal CRT monitor into the VGA port on the docking station. its been working great but over the weekend it has just stopped working. if i connect it directly into the vga port on my laptop it works fine however in the port replicator it just wont come on at all. the pins are all good.

the hardware came with no drivers so no idea how to reinstall them or update them.

any ideas on how i could fix this? i was thinking of bringing in a DVI to VGA adapter cuase it has that on the back. hmm

I have two U2715H monitors connected via one mDP->DP cable each to an E-Port Plus docking station (actually a EURO2 Advanced Port Replicator) in which is seated a Latitude E7450 laptop. All items are brand new. The E7450 is equipped with 16 GB RAM and two graphics cards: Intel HD Graphics 5500 and NVIDIA GeForce 840M; selection is automatic, which usually means the 5500 is in operation. It runs Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64 bit). The docking station apparently has DP 1.2a capabilities (for daisy chaining) but DP 1.2 is disabled in both monitors.
I have successfully set up the system to have the Windows desktop span both monitors at 2560x1440 resolution, even with the Latitude's internal screen as a third extension at its full resolution (1920x1080). The Main display may be set to either of the two (or three) and I can successfully move the sequence of the monitors around (left, middle, right).
So there is no doubt about the system's capability to support the intended configuration. However, when I dock the Latitude (mostly with the lid shut) and boot it, most of the time it cannot reestablish the configuration of the two external monitors. Some of the symptoms are: One or both monitors go black, indicating cable connected but no signal arriving from the docking station. If there is a picture on one of the monitors at startup, it may or may not contain the login screen. (I can still log in because I know what keystrokes to send.) If the login screen is visible, ...

A:Latitude E7450, E-port 2, U2715H - dual monitors - unstable configuration

No responses, so I will add my own, on the way towards a solution, which I believe requires driver enhancements. Are you listening, Dell?
Together with a colleague who knows better than me what to look for, we discovered:- The Intel HD graphics control panel -> Display port topology only discovers one, not two display ports. This could be a problem with the panel or with the graphics driver.- Both Intel and Nvidia have more recent driver releases for their respective hardware components in the Latitude E7450 than those available from Dell but they cannot be installed directly. (NVidia 353.06 vs 341.27; Intel vs - I suspect digits 5 and 6 reflect an OEM numbering scheme). Intel says their driver update includes critical fixes for display support.- When we attempted to install the latest Nvidia driver, the display flashed in what seemed to be a non-trivial manner (before the update was automatically aborted). This could be related to a conflict between the two drivers.
I also discovered that even when only one of the Dell U2715H monitors is connected, it frequently goes black when it shouldn't. So it is not a question of a dual monitor configuration as I originally thought. I have also swapped docking stations to eliminate random hardware error in this component. The Intel driver's handling of display port(s) seems to be the most likely culprit.
Guessing from seeing repeated patterns of monitor behavior, a more precise diagnosis could be t... Read more

Not sure if this is the correct forum. I tried searching but must not have used correct key words as nothing came up.

Dell Dock model PR01X which is as I read, a Port Replicator. Does not work on my Latitude D620 running Vista Home Premium. I've also tried XP Pro SP3 on the same machine and still, nothing on the Dock works except the power plug and one light on the top.

I searched Dell user forums. Found this problem has persisted for over 5 years yet Dell has still not addressed it. Many of those users have had some success by installing the XP copy of usb.inf. Vista would not allow that. So I loaded XP onto another drive, swapped it in. Still nothing worked other than the power plug and that one top light that comes on when the lid is lifted. The network cord would not 'pass thru'. I had to un-dock, plug the network cord in to get on-line and go to the Dell site to download and install drivers to get the wi-fi working.

A chat with Dell Tech about this Dock problem was a total waste of time. They wanted to either sell me support or sell me a different Dock. Done a lot of searches, and reading, something led me to Dell R181862 which is Dell Notebook system Software Utility. This installed Client Configuration Utility allows my to edit the system Bios. I used that to add 'Docking'. After making those changes I found during Setup there is now 'Docking' listed and made those selections. It didn't change a thing. Nothing on the dock work... Read more

Hi, I have a Dell Precision T3620 with only the integrated Intel HD Graphics 530. The motherboard has 2 display ports and an HDMI. I have 2 monitors, both with DVI + VGA inputs.

As mentioned in the title I have both pieces of hardware.  I also just purchased a third Dell U2414H LCD monitor.  I am trying to connect all 3 via display port.  However it seems that all I can do is 2 monitors?  When I try to daisychain them I got 2 monitors mirroring each other and one through HDMI off the laptop.

Is this a physical limitation of the replicator?  Is there a firmware update somewhere?

A:Dell Latitude E6520 & E-Port Plus 2 - Display port issue

The E6520 comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000.  The specs for that GPU are buried in the specs for the CPU itself, but if you go to ark.intel.com and look up your CPU, then scroll down to the graphics section and verify that it shows Intel HD Graphics 3000, you'll find that that GPU only supports 2 independent displays, which is why you see mirroring.  More recent Intel GPUs do indeed support 3 displays, but no Intel GPUs to my knowledge yet support 4.
If your E6520 has the NVIDIA discrete GPU, I can't find any information on NVIDIA's site about maximum number of supported displays, but based on your experience I would assume it's 2 unless indicated otherwise.

We do have some issues with our Windows 10 laptops which are using the Dell E-Port port replicater. The problem is that the network switching between wireless/undocked and wired/docked is not working properly.
When docked the laptop can't switched to the wired connection and no network is available. When removing the network cable from the E-Port, the laptop switched to wireless connection.
I notice that we have two models around here: Dell Port Replicator PR03X and K07A002

A:Portege R930-1D0 + High speed port replicator II - dual monitor support

By ?dual display? do you mean the internal + external display or do you mean two external monitors?
The Hi speed port replicator II supports the RGB port as well as the display port and HDMI port but both (display port and HDMI) cannot be used simultaneously.

You can use the internal notebook?s HDMI port and for example one of the Hi speed port replicator II ports to connect another external monitor.

I have a Dell Latitude e6440 (Intel+AMD video) with the newest BIOS A18 and the newest video drivers.  It is connected to an ePort Replicator 0PKDGR.   I have a Displayport cable connected between the ePort and an ACER 43" 4k UltraHD monitor at 3840x2160.
When I resume the Laptop from sleep/standby/hibernate, the screen flashes bars and sometimes completely turns off for a few seconds.
If I reboot, then everything is fine.
I've tried:

Making sure the bios and drivers are all up to date.
I had an unrelated issue about 2 months ago, and my motherboard and cooling fan were replaced.  So I'm assuming the motherboard is newer/better if there was ever a fix for this issue, but not entirely sure.   Since the Intel/AMD graphics are on the motherboard.  They were replaced.  The issues remained before and after.  
Tried turning off hibernate.  Using only regular standby.  Issue persists.

When laptops is docked to replicator potr dock stations D/APR (PR01X) or D/DOCK (PD01X) - bigger one model with DVD port,

headphone jack port not working under Windows 10 Pro x64 installed on both laptops.

On M6300 previously was installed Windows 7 Ultimate and on D630 was Windows 8.1.
On Dell  M6300 on Win 7 Ult. headphone jack port worked properly.
On Dell D630 on Win 8.1 I'm not sure due I do not used this on it (more years ago when it was on Win XP headphone jack port worked properly)
So when Ms start delivering updates do Win 10, I did it on doth laptops, everything on both models working fine, but only this headphone jack port in D/APR (PR01X) or D/DOCK (PD01X) wouldn't like to work when I'm dockind Dell M6300 (D630 I docked only
for test if on this one jack port will work or not) but not working too like on M6300.
So loks like drivers whih was made oryginally for Win Vista x64 ale which was workable for Windows 7 64b wouldn't like to work on Windows 10.

I?ve had a Toshiba tecra M7 for the last few years and have just purchased a brand new sealed express port replicator II model PA3680E ( docking station ) but unfortunately it does not work and a new replacement sent from the supplier also does not work.

What happens:
With dock connected at boot-up; nothing happens and the green dock light stays off.

Under windows when I first put the tecra m7 on the dock it connects and then disconnects immediately and will not reconnect. The power supply port, lan port and power switch work on the dock, but I understand these are just pass through connections. The green power led also comes on for less than a second.

For example when I do a hot dock, windows does the connection chime followed immediately by a disconnection chime and will not reconnect, also any connected USB devices flick-on and immediately off.

I?ve tried it under the original Toshiba windows XP install (with all latest Toshiba updates) and under a fresh windows 7 install (fully updated with all available Toshiba update). Bios is the last available 3.50 (also tried bios 1.70 & 3.20). tried bios USB legacy on and off.

Can anybody please help

A:Tecra M7 & express port replicator II PA3680E-1PRP are not working together


> With dock connected at boot-up; nothing happens and the green dock light stays off.

The green light which is placed near the eject button should glow green during normal operation and should turn off if the notebook has been disconnected.

If the light does not glow green, then I assume the notebook is not connected properly.

If you connect the notebook for the first time to the port replicator, an message should appear indicating the device connected to the port replicator are ready to use.

In my opinion there could be an issue with the pins or connectors?but the question is which connector could be affected: on Tecra side or port replicator side?

However, I think you should contact your dealer and should test another one.

I have a W540 and ultra dock, have been using it with a U2713HM and sometimes also a U2412 on the dock's displayport outs, no problem. I just bought a 2nd U2713H (2nd hand - I wanted them to match, thoughHM and H models are subtly different), and for the life of me I CANNOT get the new monitor to work with either DP output on the ultra dock...  (just by itself, using either port output and either of 2 cables I have... while the original 2713HM works either display port out with either cable) basically windows shows a 2nd monitor is attached, and at the right resulution... and the monotor shows that it knows it's plugged in, but claims it's not being sent any video. so it's just black... But I did get it to work via DVI cable out of the dock(though at limited resolution) And I did get it to work with the miniDP out on my actual W540 using an old mini DP to DP connector (while also using the dock's displayport out with my other U2713.Can someone let me know what on earth is going on??

I have a Dell Latitude E7440, Windows 7
The HDMI-port has been working fine for two years attaching to varius units - projectors, TV etc.Last year it stopped to work with one projector (where it uasually works) so I just used the docking station and an VGA cable instead - did not have time to look for what went wrong. After that, a few months later, the next device stopped to acknowlagde the HDMI signal, now it was my standard Samsung LED-TV. OK, so I guessed that the HDMI-cabel was the problem, but after testing several HDMI cables with no luck, I rather thought that the problem was a physical problemen in the HDMI port at the back of the laptop. To shame, hard to fix that. I now realized that there actually where another digital port on back sida of the laptop, the mini displayport -maybe that one is working? So I bought a converter "mini display port to HDMI" - and whooho - it worked. But just for a few days.. :-(
Now I am back to use the docking station and VGA and as you can understand - that is really anoying.I have been using laptops for + 20 years now so I do think I have some experience. It is not an "Fn + F8" problem or a cable problem. Any suggestions?

A:How Do I change Com.port 1 to Com.port 3? My modem is silent. Dual booting problem

What do you mean by changing COM1 to COM3? Do you want to move a device? Reassign IRQs? Physically pick one up off the motherboard and move it?

Your modem sound is usually configured in two places. One is in the Control Panel, and the other is in the Dial-up Networking settings. Adjust the volume there.

Are you running Windows 2000 and Windows 98 on separate paritions (drive letters)? If so, you'll need to use special software to convert the FAT32 file system to NTFS. I believe Parition Magic will allow this without data loss. However, I would never make such a large system change without first backing up data. There is always the chance that everything could get wiped out.

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

I have 3 monitors connected to an AMD HD5770 graphics card. Two monitors connect via HDMI, and the third through a Sapphire Active DisplayPort->DVI adaptor. Things have been working fine for years, but recently I started sleeping my computer when I am not using it during the day, as opposed to my previous habit of leaving it on all day and then shutting down at night, and a couple of days after starting this new habit, I received a 'Display Port Link Failure' message:

"The system has detected a link failure and cannot set the requested resolution and refresh rate on your DisplayPort display. Your display might not support the requested resolution or there may be an issue with the cable connecting the display to your computer"

Now, even upon resuming my normal habit of leaving the computer on and shutting down, the monitor will work sometimes but randomly stop other times.

How can I either fix the issues with sleep, which I would prefer since I want to save energy (a money issue rather than believing my actions make any difference to the environment), or if there is a problem somewhere, determine if it is the graphics card or the adaptor that needs replacing.?

A:Display Port Link Failure, Active Display Port->DVI

It could be the hardware is starting to give out. Not all problems are software related. Going to be hard to nail down if you don't have another cable. Could be the cable or the port.

Any way to test with a straight cable, not the adapter cable?

Driver mismatch between the newer drivers available on the HP.com site and when you plug in the port replicator and the drivers on its drive letter. I did see a firmware upgrade on the HP.com that has been removed. How do I update the driver on the port replicator so they agree? Is there a firmware updated file for the port replicator (3001pr 3.0 USB port replicator)

I need to convert to dual monitors on a HP 6200 Pro MT PC with Display Port and VGA ports.  The computer displays propertly with a single monitor connected to the VGA port.  Both monitors go black when I plug in a second monitor via the Display Port. In reading Internet documentation it is not clear if dual monitors will function from the system Display Port and VGA ports.  Forum articles address dual monitors with addition of a discrete video card (Big_Dave 2/4/2012). Will dual monitors work from the system Display Port and VGA ports?  If yes, what procedures are required to make such configuration work?  Any ideas on why the monitors go black?  Is a discrete video card required? Any assistance would be much apprecited as I ususally prepare income taxes and do not deal with bytes and bits.

Hi Guys,
I just bought a Latitude e7450 and I am trying to use it with my PRO3X e-port docking.
I have found some issues but the most annoying one so far is the imposibility of using the Power button on the dock to start the laptop. The Power button is blinking (blue) but I cannot use it to power up or power down the laptop.
Am I missing any setting on my laptop? Is there a problem with my laptop? The docking worked fine for the past 4 years with my Latitude 6320 so I suspect there is nothing wrong with the docking.
I have installed the latest BIOS update today.
Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

Just done a fresh install of Win10 and I'm getting really poor performance from my Precision M6800 when connected to the E-Port II replicator, it can take 4-5 seconds to switch tabs in task manager, all screen re-draws are terribly slow.
When the laptop is running stand alone all is fine. 
I just checked and there are no drivers for the replicator, but does anything updated as far as the graphics to power this dock.  Could be a faulty dock but then it's a bit of a coincidence that it only happened after the OS upgrade. 
My twin Dell U2412 monitors are connected to the dock via DVI. 
Also, anyone know if it's possible to test the docking station?

Hi! Since today I don't have any sound on my sound jack of the port replicator II (PA3680E-1PRP) to run my external speakers. Instead, the internal speakers are running. On the notebook himself, the jack is working well, only the replicator port seems to be dead.

It worked fine over 10 months now without any complaint. I saw some similar cases in forums but no answer could help me. I don't have updatet any drivers yet.

I work with WIN7/64bit Servicepack 1.

Does anyone know how to fix?

Thanks, christophe

A:No sound on port replicator II (Tecra S11-12M)


Would recommend checking this thread:

+Didn't realise that the 3.5mm audio output jack is actually driven by a USB hub within the port replicator.+
+Found that the USB Multimedia Audio Device had no driver installed for the audio port. Clicked the update driver button, it found the driver automatically, and now I have sound.+
