Default Black screen during Login

Hello everyone. I've installed "displaylink-driver-4.2.29" for Ubuntu (I'm on 18.04) and also tried this file: https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

I'm connecting two Monitors (HDMI and DVI) via USB with my PC using a port replicator (manufactured by i-tec, p/n is U3HDMIDVIDOCK). I need this to use my Monitor for my Laptop as well.

Anyhow, on my PC I've got the problem that during the boot phase and up until I entered my password to access my Ubuntu User Account, I don't have any video signal.

After I entered my password correctly both monitors receive proper signal.
Is there a way that I can install the drivers so that they are working prior login as well?

Best would be even to see the BIOS-phase, but I fear this is not possible, right?

Currently I'm using auto-login without a password, but that is something I would rather not.
