Hi all,

I have a problem connecting my monitors. So here's the gist:

Since I started working from home, I moved my laptop to my desktop table.
I have two Dell U2412M monitors, each having a Displayport and DVI inputs.
The Displayports are taken up by my desktop leaving 2 DVIs available.

My laptop connects to a dock via a USB type C. The dock has and HDMI and a mini Displayport output.
I managed to hook up HDMI to DVI and it's displaying properly, however the mini Displayport to DVI adapter I bought and hooked up to the other monitor just casts a black screen, but is recognizing the monitor.

I've tried a mini Displayport to Displayport with it and it works, but then leaves me with no option to connect my desktop.
At first I thought the adapter I bought didn't work, so I replaced it with a brand new one from the store, still the same issue.
