Hello,

I'm trying to install the driver of the ViBook on my Mac Mini where i have installed Windows 7 and I have removed totally Mac Os. The ViBook is an old adapter that allows to use more than one screen with the same graphic card. It seems that it does not work in my situation. The error that I get is the following :

"DisplayLink installer has detected that your mobile Intel 945 Express chipset family graphics drivers could have compatibility issues when used with DisplayLink software. It is reccomended that you check your laptop manufactures or graphics card vendor website for an updated graphics driver before using DisplayLink software"

This is what I see on the screen 2

We used to hit this a lot with the Tecra Z50 series and Asus 15.6" USB2 DisplayLink monitor. The catch was, we were offered the ability to ignore the error with a tick and for the most part the external monitor would just work.

Make sure the monitor has a display resolution that is supported by the DisplayLink adapter and the laptop's graphics. That may be a hardware limitation being hit there over a driver one.

The DVI to VGA is probably what's killing it.

Use a DVI to DVI cable from the DisplayLink adapter to the monitor.

WIN+P --> down arrow twice --> ENTER. That should bring the main screen back.
