Laptop Docked profile doesn't stay the same.

Ok, here is a quirky issue I am having.

I have two users with laptops. Both have docking stations and both have a second monitor connected to their docking stations.

Both users take their laptops home at night to work.

When User A comes back into the office, and docks his laptop...When he turns his computer on, his computer already knows to mirror the primary screen to the second monitor on the docking station.

User B however has to manually set the second monitor to mirror when he comes back into the office.

How can you keep the second monitor "Mirroring" enabled on a docked hardware profile?

If both computers are the same model check the video drivers are the same.
Also, you might remove the HW profile (System Properties | Hardware | Hardware Profiles) and have it been recreated next time laptop is docked.

They are two different models but same brand. Both IBM, but one may be newer. I'll have to check.

I have tried re-creating the docked profile, no luck.

Once I had similar issue with Dell C400 laptops - whatever I tried after undocking it always switched to internal LCD. I had to install an older driver that didn't had this bug.

It was indeed a video driver issue.
