    External Monitor not detected after 8.1 update

    I just updated my SP to 8.1 and now my external monitor is not detected.

    It is connected via a mini DP to VG adaptor and was working fine before installing the update.

    I tried googling, but couldn't find anything.

    Anyone else have this problem? Or can suggest a solution?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    [edit] It seems as though one of the Windows updates failed (Hardware update dated 5th Oct). Checking for new updates didn't try and reinstall it.
    I had to manually download the driver from the Intel site and manually choose it to get the display working properly.

    Good Morning,

    I am experiencing the same issue. Can you please provide a link to the driver that solved your issue?

    I am using a Toshiba Dynadock.

    Thank you kindly!

    - Audi.

    UPDATE: This driver worked http://www.displaylink.com/support/downloads.php

    I used THIS ONE - Intel's Updated Graphics Drivers for Ivy Bridge, Haswell Stomps Out Bugs in Windows 7 and 8 | Maximum PC

    Extract the zip or exe and then update the driver manually in Windows and say you wil select the driver yourself and that you have a disk.
