    DisplayLink Manager application high cpu usage when connect to docking

    Hi all..
    i don't know where this issue come from.
    This problem happens on my DELL XPS 13 QHD 2015.

    anytime i am plugging my laptop to my DELL D3100 USB 3 docking station and watching a movie through YouTube or anything else(like VLC and MediaPlayer) i experience high CPU usage that come from Displaylink Manager Application service - it goes around 56-80% of usage and my laptops fan going crazy and very noisy..
    i also checked with CPU ID and found out that my CPU temperature goes up to 97-103 Celsius.

    does anyone had this issue before and know what to do?

    i am really frustrated cause i am a student and i just can't watch my classes (playbacks) through my second screen (27" Full HD Screen) which is much more convenient.

    Thanks a lot for your help .

    edited: i have the latest driver according to DisplayLink website.

    My experience has been that display link software causes more problems than it solves. The way it captures video eats CPU. (Very bad when gaming too). I uninstalled it and got a mini-display port to DVI cable instead. Problem solved.
