color quality or refresh rate etc. However, these settings can
be configured by user as well. The maximum resolution and
refresh rate are depending on specifications of the monitors.
Mirror monitor

monitors. The resolution of the primary and add-on monitors
may be changed to a lower resolution. For example, if
the primary monitor does not support the resolution of

Troubleshooting
The display on the add-on monitor is blank.
■ If the monitor power is on (LED lights green in most
cases), wait a moment for the monitor to show the
video as sometimes it takes time for the add-on
monitor to show the video. You can also reboot your
system to try again. Also make sure the computer is
not in standby or hibernation mode, which will lead the
add-on monitor to be blank.
■ If the monitor power is in standby (LED lights red in
most cases), check the connection. If problem still
exists, uninstall the driver, unplug the adapter and reinstall
the driver again.
The add-on monitor is flickering.
■ This is usually caused by a low refresh rate. To solve
this problem, refer to the steps below.
● In mirror mode, increase the refresh rate of the main
monitor. This will in turn increase the refresh rate of
the add-on monitor.
● In extended mode, increase the refresh rate of the
add-on monitor.
When playing a MPEG file by Windows Media Player
on the extended monitor, the display becomes
abnormal when switching it to full screen mode?
■ Upgrade the Windows® XP from SP1 to SP2.
Page 33 of 39
When playing the video in full screen mode, the
motion is not smooth.
■ Reduce the resolution of the display to 640x480 or
800x600.
■ Use the adapter in extended mode.
■ Terminate any other CPU intensive applications
running on the computer.
■ As some media players require DirectX hardware
support to correctly operate, try a different media
player which requires less DirectX support.
■ Drag the media player to the add-on screen and
close the player. Restart the player and it should
open on the add-on monitor. Now try playing the
media file again.
■ Try reducing the hardware acceleration level of
the primary display (NOT the add-on monitor) to
levels 1, 2 or 3 and restarting the media player. The
hardware acceleration can be found by right-clicking
on your desktop and click Properties > Settings >
Advanced > Troubleshoot. Some players use this
setting even when playing on a different display.
■ The video playback may be unusual when the addon
monitor is mirroring the primary display and
there is another extended screen connected to the
computer. The extended screen must be disabled
before the content will be correctly cloned to the
add-on monitor.
Page 34 of 39
In extended mode, the add-on monitor appears to
have a black border around the desktop.
■ This happens when the resolution used by the add-on
monitor is larger than the resolution used by the
primary monitor. To solve this problem, configure the
add-on monitor to use the same resolution as the
primary monitor.
No screen when playing back the protected
contents. (varies by model)
■ Some protected videos may not be played back when
connecting to a HDMI® monitor.
Full screen menus may corrupt or lose the level of
detail.
■ It may appear when the resource of computer does
not enough to render the screen in full quality. It may
also occur when the Optimise for video is enabled
through the DisplayLink GUI.
■ Disable the Optimise for video, or turn off
unnecessary programs.
■ Set the power plan to High performance when
using laptop.
