    I can use internal display with the latest desktop Nvidia driver without modifications with ViDock4 and GTX560ti on Lenovo x220. Driver version 302.82. Make sure to select Nvidia GPU as primary in Geforce settings. I assume the main difference between our laptops is that yours has dGPU which needs to be disabled...

    Just make sure the intelhd graphics is enabled. In display adapter, your egpu and intel hd should be the only cards enabled and working. My Vidock has been working fine but I didn't have to worry about the dgpu problem. You should then be able choose the internal monitor only under change screen resolution.

    Only those two I can see in the device manager, I think that my problem is in the "screen resolution" section, I cannot seem to be able to change to internal screen, something is wrong...

    Glad you made it to work. I had no wishes for you to return the ViDock other than present that as an option if Villagetronic and/or the ViDock facebook support page can't solve your problem. Your result validating one reason why I consider it a poor product: poor vendor product support amongst the other issues - inflexible power design, overpriced for what is basic electronics and a small user support base.

    Still, I can understand why some would pay higher amounts of money for the convenience of a enclosure-based product.
