I use my spectre with the Thunderbolt 120w G2 dock. When I used it like this, when the laptop get hot, the external monitor flashes black for 1-3 seconds. At least this is my supposition since the fans are blaring. I've tried verifying with HWInfo64, but its hard to see the temps when you have no screen.
I was told by support that this dock does not support this laptop, however, even today you can go and buy this laptop and it states this is an accessory for it.
Another issue, perhaps related, is that if I use any DP->HDMI cables on that dock, the flashing to black gets worse and happens more often.
What I've tried since I have 3 of these Docks, multiple cables, and I I use an HP EliteBook 1030 g4 for work:
I have tried at least 10 cables. Issue persists only on the spectre, not the elitebook. I have tried all 3 docks I have access to and the issue only presents on the spectre, not the elitebook
This is very frustrating because at least 75% of the time this laptop is meant to be used on the dock.
Any help would be appreciated. I got this laptop in December, but i was moving offices so only started using the laptop with the dock regularly this week. I am so fed up I want to return my whole purchase (which included 2 of these laptops and a dock)
