Re: Docking station compatibility with dual DVI monitors

hello, 

It appears that the second DVI monitor won't activate until you closed the lid of the laptop (pay attention by default the laptop will go standby if you close the lid)

So, disable the standby linked to the lid closing

activate the  first external dvi monitor from the laptop using extended desktop then close de lid of the laptop.

From the working external monitor, activate again the extended desktop onto the second external monitor !

It's working on latitude 6500 with intel grafic chipset and nvidia grafic chipset..

It's possible  that there is an easier way: plug de lattitude onto the dockstation lid closed and power de laptop with the power button on the dockstation i bet it will probably work too.
