Problem with screens

Hello Dear Users,

I have problem with my laptop. It's dell alienware 14 R3. Below you are able to find more details about this what is inside etc.

Problem description:

After last kernel update I noted problem with multi screens. When I want use two screens I have situation that one screen is working fine and second is not detected. ( in settings > devices > screens I have only one screen. There should be 3. One from laptop and 2 additional ). I tried change kernel to older versions but it doesn't work. I also tried to change nvidia driver to older versions but still same problem. I suppose that problem is connected with something else then kernel or nvidia driver. Do you have some clues or ideas?

My Questions:
- in current configuration I'm not using nvidia card because there is some error. I can see that on extension but I don't know where I can check what kind of error. Maybe somebody know?
- I would say that problem can be connected to some firmware update or something like that (just my suggestion / simple idea) because laptop doesn't know how to detect other screens. The most wird for me is that laptop doesn't 'see' him own screen when additional screens are connected.


More details:
- if I can deliver you something more please let me know
