1. 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

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

5. Troubleshooting
Q: The display on the add-on monitor is blank.
A:

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 re- install the driver again.
Q: The add-on monitor is flickering.
A:

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
Q: When playing a MPEG file by Windows Media Player on the
extended monitor, the display becomes abnormal when switching
it to full screen mode?
A: Upgrade the Windows® XP from SP1 to SP2.
26
Q: When playing the video in full screen mode, the motion is not
smooth.
A:

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 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.
Q: In extended mode, the add-on monitor appears to 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.
27
Q: Full screen menus may corrupt or lose the level of detail.
A:

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.
Q: Hardware acceleration may not available to applications.
A: Check the table below for more supported information.
