2. Installation
Note: Install the driver on your computer before connecting the display adapter(s).
1. Insert the driver CD into your computer’s CD-ROM drive. The setup program should
run automatically. If the setup program fails to start on its own, open the CD and
double-click on the appropriate driver file.
Note:
• If you encounter a User Account Control popup, choose to allow the
installation to proceed. This may require an administrator’s password.
If you encounter a driver signature dialog box, choose to continue the
installation.
• If a message stating “Display Link software for USB display adapter is
already up to date,” then the necessary software for this unit is already
installed, and you can proceed to step 5.
2. Follow the prompts that appear to complete the process.
3. When this process is complete, you will need to restart your computer to finish the
installation.
4. After restarting your computer, connect the included USB cable from an available
USB 2.0 or 3.0 port to the display adapter.
5. Connect your display adapter to a monitor using an HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI or VGA
cable, depending on your adapter/monitor connection type.
6. Once connected, the computer will recognize the display adapter, and complete the
installation. The video should now be displayed on the add-on monitor. Note: It may
take a few moments before the screen appears on the add-on monitor. Also, it
is normal for the screen to flicker on and off a few times when first connected.
If the add-on monitor remains blank, you may need to restart your computer
one more time.
Using Multiple Display Adapters
When using multiple display adapters, it is only necessary to install the driver software
once. After connecting the first display adapter to the computer, simply move on to
connecting the next display adapter.
Note: When using Windows Vista XDDM mode, only one display adapter will be
able to be configured to use Extended mode, and the remaining display adapters
will be forced to use Mirror mode. Windows Vista XDDM mode is a video card
driver mode that provides a Windows XP interface on a Vista computer.

3. Using the Adapter
3.1 Display Properties
Once installed, the computer video can be Extended from the primary display to the addon display, Mirrored to display the same thing on both, or changed to use the add-on
display as the primary display. This can be done by opening the Display Settings page on
your computer (see below) and changing the settings.
To access the display settings, right-click on your computer’s desktop, and select the
Properties or Personalize option, depending on your Windows operating system. From there
you will need to access the Settings or Display option to get to the Display Settings page. A
quick way to access this page is to use the display adapter icon in the lower-right corner of
your computer screen. Right-click on this icon and select the DisplayLink Manager or Video
Setup option to automatically pull up your computers Display Settings page.

3. Using the Adapter
In addition to the display adapter right-click menu, Windows Vista and 7 users can press
the [Windows Key] and the [P] key at the same time to pull up the menu below, which
quickly allows you to switch the display settings.
Note: Only Mirror mode is supported under Windows Vista Display Driver
Model (WDDM) mode. In addition, the Aero Experience (Flip 3D effect) will be
disabled under Windows Vista Display Driver Model (WDDM) mode as long as
the display adapter is connected.
3.2 Extending Video to the Add-On Display
To extend the video of the primary monitor to the add-on monitor, follow the steps below:
1. Open your computer’s Display Settings page.
2. Select the monitor icon that represents the add-on display you wish to change, or
choose the add-on display from the drop-down menu. The primary display is always
icon 1.
3. Once you’ve selected the monitor icon for the add-on display, check the checkbox to
extend video onto the monitor, or select the extension option from the drop-down list.
4. Drag the monitor icons in the Display Settings page so that they are positioned to
replicate the location of the actual displays. For example, if display 1 is directly to
the left of display 2, the monitor icons should be positioned that way. This affects
which side of the screen the mouse is allowed to move to the next display from, and
is therefore essential to ensure smooth mouse movement between displays.
5. Click the Apply button to activate the changes. The computer video will now be
extended from the primary display to the add-on display.
Note: When playing a DVD, it is recommended that you play the DVD on a
monitor connected to the computer via standard cabling, and not an add-on
monitor connected via display adapter. If you need to play DVD on an add-on
monitor, you must have a 2.0GHz Core Duo CPU with 1GB of RAM, and the
screen resolution must be set to 800 x 600 with 32-bit color. If multiple display
adapters are connected to a computer, only 1 of them can play DVD content.

3.3 Mirroring Video on the Add-On Display
To display the same thing on both the primary and add-on display, follow the steps below:
1. Open your computer’s Display Settings page.
2. Select the monitor icon that represents the add-on display you wish to change, or
choose the add-on display from the drop-down menu. The primary display is always
icon 1.
3. Un-check the box next to Extend the desktop onto this monitor, or select the option
from the drop-down menu to duplicate the display, and then click the apply button.
Note: In Mirror mode, the add-on display settings are limited by those of the
primary display. If the primary display only supports a resolution of 1280 x
1024, the add-on monitor will be limited to a resolution of 1280 x 1024 or less.
3.4 Making the Add-On Display the Primary Display
To make the add-on display the primary display for the computer, follow the steps below:
1. Open your computer’s Display Settings page
2. Select the monitor icon that represents the add-on display you wish to change, or choose
the add-on display from the drop-down menu. The primary display is always icon 1.
3. Check the box next to This is my main monitor and click the Apply button to make the
add-on display the primary display for the computer.
Note:
• Some computers require you to first un-select the original primary display before
setting a new primary display.
• Once set as the primary display, the add-on display will continue to be the
primary display as long as it is connected to the computer. Once disconnected,
the primary display will default back to the monitor connected to the computer
via standard cable.

4. Troubleshooting
Q: Why is the display on the add-on monitor blank?
A: If the monitor power LED is Green, wait a moment for the monitor to display the
video, as it may take some time for the video to be displayed on the add-on monitor.
If after a few minutes the video does not display, restart your computer. Also, make
sure the computer is not in standby or hibernation mode, which will cause the addon monitor to be blank.
If the monitor power LED is Red, check if the connection is properly made. If the
connection is fine and the problem still exists, uninstall the driver, unplug the
adapter and reinstall the driver.
Q: Why is the add-on monitor flickering?
A: This is usually caused by a low refresh rate. When in “Mirror Mode,” increase
the refresh rate of the main monitor. This will in turn increase the refresh rate of
the add-on monitor, which should stop the flickering. When in “Extended Mode,”
increase the refresh rate of the add-on monitor.
Q: When I play MPEG file by Windows Media Player on the extended monitor, why
does the display become abnormal when I switch it to full screen mode?
A: If your system is Windows XP SP1, upgrading to SP2 will solve this problem.
Q: Why does the video not display properly when in “Full-Screen” mode?
A: Try the following tips to improve the smoothness of the movie playback:
• Reduce the resolution of the display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600.
• 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 addon 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.”
• The video playback may be unusual when the add-on 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.

4. Troubleshooting
Q: In “Extended Mode,” why does the add-on monitor have a black border
around the desktop?
A: 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.
Q: In “Extended” mode, why does the cursor disappear?
A: If you’re in extended mode but have not yet connected the add-on monitor, the
desktop will still pan to the add-on monitor. It’s possible that your cursor has moved
to the extended desktop and is no longer visible on the primary display.
When this occurs, try the following:
• Connect the add-on monitor to the display adapter. You should be able to see
the mouse cursor once the computer screen is displayed.
• Move your mouse to try and drag the cursor back onto the primary monitor.
• Unplug the display adapter from the computer to restore the cursor.
