Problem with external monitor

Hi,

During system startup, when i have to type password to log in to system, external monitor work fine. When i log in, external monitor loses signal. This monitor is connect to docking station, and docking station is connect to laptop via USB-C. xrandr see this monitor connected. I must go to display settings, choose "the same image" or "one display" and back to "screen connected" then all works fine. This problem is always when i turn on laptop. If i reboot, everything is good.

Someone have idea?
Ps. Sorry for my language.

Did You tried it with Wayland?

Looks like it worked. I'll see if everything will be OK after turning off the laptop for a long time. Thanks <3.

Edit:
However, it turned out to be even worse. Now, apart from the fact that there is no image at the start on the external monitor, even xrandr does not detect it.

After long suspend it's the same problem. I must reconnect usb-c hub then it work.

Edit:
It's super weird but now I turned on the laptop after 5 hours and it works. I mark it as solved

You don't have to make that immediately. Take Your Time and test it.
