    Hi guys my first post here :)
    Do you have any experience with docks for Razer Blade Advanced "15 2018? I've recently bought one and wondering if I can somehow plug my setup with one cable. What i need
    • 2 FullHD monitors if there is dock with 3 working outputs it would be even better
    • 4 USB ports for mice, keyboard, DAC and external drive
    • Ethernet port would be great but not necessary

    I've already found Dell TB15 and TB16, some docks from Plugable but dont know if they are compatible with Razer :slightly_sad:

    Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 dock. Been using for about 2 years with different versions of the Blade.

    Will still be a 2 cable setup though as you need to connect the power brick cable as well as the TB3 cable.

    But I have my 34” alienware ultrawide / mouse / keyboard / usb dac plugged into it with 1 spare usb port at the front for thumb drives etc and I dont use the ethernet port

    Thanks @jaseow, i know that i need to use second cable to power it but i belive its beacause of TB3 limitations. It can only transfer 100W, while blade needs at least 180W in base version. I'll buy one and try its not that pricey compared to e.g Dell TB15 or TB16

    New setting probably windows recognition issues, try restarting your system or changing display mode from internal to external, check cable connection etc, i had also experienced similar things btw.

    @Joikansai I was unprecised, when i plug it in i hear that typical windows sound when u plug sth, display wakes up and then shows that there is no signal. Checked settings, tried to reinstall drivers still nothing. but i thing that the problem is in cabel. Bought mine dock from second hand, and cabel is in my opinion usb not TB because its totaly to long( around 1,5m) will order normal TB cabel and check
