I've had ongoing network connectivity problems with the onboard graphics adapter when my docked laptop is connected to an external monitor. When the monitor is connected I experience general random network disconnects intermingled with prolonged continuous network disconnects. During these periods, if the monitor cable is disconnected from the port replicator, network connectivity immediately returns to a normal and constant connected state.
I've tried the following solutions which have all failed:
Please can someone shed any light on this issue? It certainly appears to be a conflict with the Intel graphics adapter and its ability to function correctly with an external monitor.
You may need to test the system without the docking station and using a monitor directly connected to one of the video ports in the laptop.
Keep in mind that the drivers we provide are generic versions for the video controller we designed and this generic driver does not take under consideration the usage of a docking station. However your Original Equipment Manufacturer or computer manufacturer customizes the driver to support what they have configured on their systems, and this includes using a docking device like the one you mentioned.
So, you can try using our generic drivers while using the integrated ports of the laptop and check what happens.
Or try using the docking station with the drivers directly provided by your laptop manufacturer.
