DisplayLink USB Graphics Drivers
What Products Require DisplayLink Drivers to Function?
- At this time we use DisplayLink USB Graphics chipsets in all of our USB 2.0 and 3.0 graphics adapters and docking station products. These products require DisplayLink drivers to function correctly.
- These drivers may be installed with or without the hardware present yet. The final configuration will then be completed automatically when hardware is plugged in.
- Please be aware that it is perfectly normal to have your monitors briefly flash black once or more during installation and a reboot may be required to complete installation.
- Currently only some of our USB-C docking station products, and none of our Thunderbolt™ 3 products utilize DisplayLink technology.
- The following products do not require DisplayLink drivers: TBT3-UDV, TBT3-UD1/TBT3-UD1-83, TBT3-DP2X/TBT3-DP2X-83, TBT3-HDMI2X/TBT3-HDMI2X-83, UD-CAM, UD-CA1/UD-CA1A, or USBC-MD101.
Windows 10, 8.1/8, Windows 7
- ChromeOS has built-in support for most DisplayLink-based devices. No driver install is needed.
- See DisplayLink’s Chromebook page for more detail.
