Poor performance via e-port II replicator

Hi, 

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? 

Thanks

RE: Poor performance via e-port II replicator

Solved it! When at work it ran like a dream, seriously fast as is two seconds to open visual studio 2015 but on the dock two minutes to open the same. Then I twigged, the power supply to the dock was the wrong one,. Swapped them and all is great.

Thanks for reading :-)
