Introduction
The USB 3.0 Display Adapter is a device which enables
connection to second display device to a computer using
USB 3.0 port. With this convenient design, it can connect up
to 6 display devices to a computer without installing extra
video cards. Once the driver has been installed, the USBattached monitor will be enabled immediately. No function
key on the adapter and there is no need to reboot the

By default, the adapter will configure the settings for the
add-on monitor automatically, such as screen resolution,
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
In mirror mode, both monitors will be configured to the same
resolution, which may not be the maximum resolution of the
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
1920x1080, then 1920x1080 is not possible to set even the
connected adapter supports 1920x1080.

Using multiple adapters
Up to 6 adapters can be connected to one computer
simultaneously. To connect multiple adapters, install the
drive as described in the Installation section and then
connect the adapters to a computer.
Note: Only the first connected adapter can be configured to
extended mode and the others will be forced to mirror mode
if using a low-end or poor conditional computer.
Disconnect the adapter
The add-on monitor goes blank when the operating system
goes into standby, hibernate mode or even disconnection.
All windows and icons will move to the primary screen. Once
the system is activated or reconnected again, the display
mode will return to the previous mode before disconnecting.
However, some windows or icons may not remove back to
the screen of add-on monitor.
31
Uninstall the adapter and driver
1. Open the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and
Features on Windows® 7/ Windows® 8/ Windows® Vista,
and Add or Remove Programs on Windows® XP.
2.Select <DisplayLink Graphic> and click <Uninstall or
Remove>.
3.Click <Yes> to remove the driver.
4.Click <Yes> to restart your computer and then unplug the
adapter now.
32
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.
33
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.
34
In extended mode, the add-on monitor appears to
have a black border around the desktop.
■ This happens when the resolution used by the addon 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 Optimize for video is enabled
through the DisplayLink GUI.
■ Disable the Optimize for video, or turn off
unnecessary programs.
■ Set the power plan to High performance when
using laptop.
35
Hardware acceleration may not available to
applications.
