Docking station and Solidworks being forced into software open gl?

I have been evaluating a new dell 5510 mobile precision with a usb 3.0 docking station. Went through the normal shenanigans for 4k and windows 10 pro. My issue now is that it appears that the docking station is no longer utilizing the hardware graphics. Can no longer click on nvidia settings when in the docking station, windows indicates it is not operational. An in between is to use software open gl but this is only a half measure as I routinely work with rather complicated models.

 

I have the ability to go to the thunderbolt docking station but brief testing shows the same result. Google is not being forthcoming with this being an issue.

 

Has anyone else had this present or know of a work around?
