Docking station problem?

Q: Docking station problem?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista Home premium
Intel Core Duo 2 CPU T8300 @ 2.4 gHz 4 gb RAM
all software updates are current.

I have a Kengsington Notebook expansion dock with Video #33367

About a month ago my computer started acting scary. I would come to the computer and it would be in what I assumed was "sleep" mode, I would push the power button and nothing would happen. I would hold down the power button trying to force a reboot and nothing. I disconnected eveything thing, unplugged it and re-plugged ... nothing. I unplugged everything again and in desperation took out the battery and put in back in and bingo it started up. I re-hooked everything and went on my merry way. Sometime later, bang it happens again. I tried the same corrections and they worked. The THIRD time this happend I left OFF the DOCKING STATION and it has not happened again.

Any ideas? Does Vista have docking station issues? Is this a lousy docking station? Does anyone recommend a good docking station. I really want a docking station.

Thanks!

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.
Problem also reported in launchpad with lot's of debug info, here:
bugs.launchpad.net/.../1585884
Autorandr script is here: github.com/.../

Hey all-

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that I use with a docking station. Everything has been working but occasionally when I put the laptop into the docking station and power up, the external monitor will not come on unless I open the lid of my laptop. When I close the lid of my laptop, the system goes to standby and the external monitor goes out. I went into the power options and changed the option for when the laptop is closed to "Do Nothing". I would like to be be able to keep it on Standby like it had been working originally. Any ideas why this may be occurring?
 

A:Problem with Laptop and Docking Station

standby mode is known to cause system issues (instability, currupt files, screwed up settings). I wouldn't use standby anymore if I were you.

To get your old settings back in order, run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started happening. (then you should disable standby mode so that that doesn't happen again)

also... check your display settings, there may be an option for primary monitor default when docked.

The PC in question is a Dell Latitude D620. When off the docking station, the screen display is normal, however when it's hot docked, or cold booted from the dock, the screen displays only 1/4 of the screen, however it shows the entire image. It's hard to put into words for me, it's displaying the entire desktop, same resolution, however the image its self is maybe 4 inches. I did fix this problem on my laptop by updating drivers, however I would have to explain this process over the phone as I am a support guy, and if it doesn't work, then I'm back to the beginning. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I the only one with the off the wall calls..

nevermind, it's fixed. the person who is using the laptop forgot to mention they adjusted the resolution, and it's a widescreen monitor, so it had the black bars.. amazing how people forget the details...

I have noticed a continuing problem with using our Pro Book 640 laptops and Elite Book 8460 and 8470s, when docked in docking stations and sharing keyboard, video and mouse through Belkin 2-port KVM switches.  The problem is that the keyboard and mouse will sometimes just quit responding, although the lights are on, indicating they are connected.  A number of techniques are tried to get the functionality back, including uplugging power from the KVM and plugging it back in, unplugging the keyboard and mouse from the KVM, and rebooting the laptop. Any one of these may or may not solve the issue.  My question is, has anyone else experienced similar issues when using docking stations in combination with a KVM? Thank you.TJfromVA

I got this message on my computer right before it froze and shut down:

"You have inserted a module into the docking stations modular bay, but this module is not supported by your docking station... should remove now.." Not sure how it ended, didn't write the whole thing down and then it went of the screen and everything was frozen.

Now when I turn it on it will run for a while but then freezes and after a long while shots off. If I try to turn it on soon after, it wont even start, the light just comes, it starts but then shuts down.

Its a Dell Latitude D510 and I have XP, can anyone help? That message means nothing to me, I don't know what a module, docking bay or station is and I haven't inserted anything in a long time.

We have around 100x E7440's and on most of them we have the same problem. 
When the machine is operated on battery then the lid is closed it goes to standby/hibernation (this is not the problem).
But when the machine is docked into the port replicator / docking station and switched on, as soon as Windows starts, it goes to Blue Screen.

Hi,

Got a weird one.

I had an old Toshiba t900 which died recently. it was on a small network and was also connected a HP Laserjet 6P/MP postscript printer. Most printing was done via the network to this printer. the printer was actually installed as a laserjet 6L because otherwise the driver sent everything via postscript with took for ever (well graphics did) and frequently failed with a "not enough memory error"

I have replaced this with a Tecra M10 (no parallel port) and a docking station which has a parallel port.

I did install the laserjet 6P/MP postscript driver and it all worked fine (except of course for the speed and memory problems mentioned above).

I then deleted the 6P/MP device and installed the printer as a 6L (as before) but when I tried to print a test page it did not send anything to the printer and reports a device error.

Ive uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted etc but made no impact. The only thing that is slightly odd is that after deleting the devices and rebooting the sometimes reappear suggesting maybe I have not got rid of them completely

If I start from scratch (no printer visible) and install the printer (replace current driver) as a 6MP it seems to install OK (except that Under printer->Properties, the panel is blank)

But when I print a test page, nothing happens (no lights flash on the printer) and a yellow triangle appears. The print queue simply says error - printing

Any suggests as to what I need to do to get this fixe... Read more

A:Printing problem through docking station to LPT1

OK it was tedious but I got there.

Delete all printers and keep deleting and rebooting until they have all gone (there must be an easier way?)
Plug in the printer and reboot the computer so it installs OK as 6P/6MP Postscript
Check it does actually work!!

Go to devices and printers
Take the installed working 6P/6MP Postscript
Right click, Printing properties
Advanced
Select a driver from the drop down list (6MP in my case) I guess these drivers were there from previous efforts so if the right driver is not there you may have to install it and then start from the beginning

Change the share name to avoid confusion
Go to the other PC
Install a network printer
Select the one you have just renamed
Test it and Message 'Unable to access printer'!! b*g*e*!!

Probably some garbage left over from previous efforts (now deleted)so
Reboot and try again.
Now it works.:-)

And now perhaps I can get on and do something useful!!

I'm using win 7 Pro, SP-1, Dell Vostro 64 bit laptop, a Toshiba Dynadoc and the dynadoc utility_II and a secondary monitor, and a MS wireless Mouse 5000.
The wireless mouse works fine when hooked up to the laptop at home with both laptop and monitor screen viewing well.
The problem is when traveling, unhooking the docking station and only using the wireless mouse with the laptop, the laptop does not recognize the mouse. The wireless sender attached to the laptop shows light indicator activity and the mouse lights up when manually activated, but doesn't recognize the wireless sender and shuts off.
I've tried unloading the dynadock utility program and changing control panel mouse settings. With system check the mouse seems to be recognized, but it doesn't reconnect to computer.
Any ideas ?

Hi guys,

i am experiencing some problems with the 2 mentioned laptops.

The 1st one is:
I bought a used 7020 to replace the broken screen of 7200. After disassembled the screen, I noticed that the connectors have the same number of wires, but one of the terminal of the 7200's screen has a larger socket. "no problem" I thought, and with patience I picked up the cable of the 7020 adapter an put it into the 7200.
But when i turned it on i saw only colored lines and squares :S :S
If you want i can provide the PN, if it could help...Even if i check the compatibility before order.

2nd problem:
Portege 7200 recognize correctly the docking station, while the 7020 emit some beeps before boot, and obviously it doesn't work with him. I checked on toshiba's site and the dock would be totally compatible!

And for last... Where can i find bios updates?

Sorry for my bad english, i hope that someone could help me!

regards,
Francesco

A:Compatibility problem with Portege 7020 / 7200 CT display & docking station

Hello Francesco

You will be really lucky if anyone here can help you with these old notebook models. I am pretty sure they are about 10 years old.
Without maintenance manuals and enough knowledge is not easy to help you with this display replacement.

This issue with docking station can be related to defective hardware. Both notebooks are so similar and both of them can be used with this docking station. How you can be sure hardware is top on 7020?

BIOS updates are available on http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp but as I can see for Portege 7000 there is no BIOS update, just for 7020.

If you want you can contact nearest Toshiba service provider. they have maintenance manuals for this old notebooks and they can help you offering exact info about parts you need.

File Transfer - Help Wanted

It will be from the old computer running Windows XP to a new computer running Windows 7.

The old computer has files which I have accumulated over a number of years, it is a mixture of those used rarely, used frequently and junk.

The chances are some of the files will never be used again, but they just might be wanted at some future date. I am therefore reluctant to scrap anything. Neither do I want to put a lot of possibly unnecessary files on the new computer.

I need to be able to search the old hard drive and recover a file if it is wanted.

The old computer is about 9 years old and is slow and may not be worth upgrading.

I now have two computers and one monitor and I am not sure what would be the best route.

Since it has become clear that I cannot trust the sales people at Dell, I will see if someone on this forum can recommend a docking station or port replicator that will work with the Inspiron 1525, XP Pro, SP3. The Dell folks had me order a Kensington SD 200V, with option for dual monitor. After hours of trying to make it work, the folks at Kensington told me that it is not compatible with XP SP3.

I would love it if I could find a docking station like my old IBM Thinkpad, where even the power for the laptop was taken care of at the docking station. Guess that's not possible with a Dell.

I do want to use an external monitor, speakers.

Any suggestions, even for somewhere else to search?

Thanks,
Barbara
 

A:Recommendation for Docking Station?

I am not seeing anything like that for your model.
With all the connections that are shown for your model
at the dell website,it's probably not needed.
You have connections to hook up an external monitor,
or even an HDTV by vga or HDMI.
I imagine you could connect speakers to one of the headphone
jacks,but might want to use a USB sound card instead to
keep the wires out of the way.
Sorry I couldn't find exactly what you were looking for.

Hello all. Please help! I have a Dell inspiron 700m running WinXP connected to a Belkin F5U216 docking port, VGA pass through to a full size monitor, full size USB keyboard. The serial and parallel ports on the docking station do not work. If I go to device manager there is an error , failed to load, whatever you call it next to USB-serial controller. I don't know if it has anything to do with the docking station but I tried re-installing the driver for it to no avail. The Belkin tech support people haven't been of any help. Does anyone have any ideas about this. Much appreciated.

Regards,
Andy

I see used docking stations for T61 for sale. Can't tell if they have additional fans or any other goodies? If my desktop (XP) fails, this laptop will take it's place.   Montior , Keyboard, mouse and printer.  Additinal USBs is the main reason.  I remember some docking stations had fans to help cool the laptop?

A:T61 docking station worth it?

I'll throw in my  two cents on this one.  I have both the 2505 and 2504 docks.  I much prefer the 2504's because they have a DVI video and a separate audio output that the 2505 doesn't,  besides they both sell for about the same used.  The DVI output allows a digital video signal that hooks up directly to a monitor with same or I use a DVI to HDMI cable to hook up to a HDMI port.  I have speakers already hooked up to the audio and the mouse and keyboard hooked to the USB ports on the dock, and a dedicated, to the dock, power adapter.  This allows me to plug in the laptop, power up and everthing boots up without even having to raise the laptop lid by setting up the video to go to the monitor screen.   I have them set up in multiple locations so can move my laptop easily to areas where I want to use it for:  music, internet, videos, etc.  These docks are readily available and inexpensive. As far as heat both docks are designed to raise the laptop off the surface and have venting to allow air to go underneath the fan area as well as air vents in the upper corner where the fan is located.  I am not sure how effective this is but it does seem to be a well thought out design so I am sure it does some good but probably not enough to prevent the well documented NVIDIA issue.  I have both laps with the Intel gpu and NVIDIA and none have failed so far. I am running Windows 7 on...

Searched site for info on HD docking station. No threads answered my questions.

Even though I received some wonderful help from some of you recently, I couldn't get rid of a virus on an older computer. I've decided to buy an HD docking station and hopefully transfer some of my needed and wanted files to another HD. This HD is brand new with nothing on it. Will I be able to transfer files to it if it doesn't have an operating system?

I'm definitely not going to do a mass transfer, I'll pick and chose .jpgs, videos and documents. No .exe programs what-so-ever.

Will this way be safe to keep the pesky virus on the old PC? Once I have everything I want off the old PC, I'll give it a complete restore with the original Windows.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you
Tony

I am curious if anyone has had experience with dell d/port docking stations (port replicators). I formerly used a dell inspiron 8600 with its corresponding docking station to connect to all my peripherals. I recently purchased a new Dell latitude d630, but didn't want to spend the extra money for a new docking station. The old one seems to work fine, even though dell doesn't say they are compatible. Does anyone know if there are any long-term detrimental effects to using a potentially incompatible docking station? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Docking Station Advice

The only problem I can forsee is that the connector pins on the docking station might not match the computer. Most newer laptops use 2 alignment pins to ensure the piece stays in the dock. If you can't get a good connection or see flaky things happening while the laptop is docked, but not while it's out, get the matching docking station.

As an alternative, Kensington offers a USB based docking station. It's not a true dock, but a stationary connector for your peripherals.

If you are running Win 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can try downloading and installing XP Mode and see if the USB drivers for it work within XP Mode.

How old is your Rex? I had a Rex Pro around 1996 or so. Mine was so old that it synced via a serial cable, not USB. Neat little gadget but newer PDAs and smartphones I've used since then are far more capable.

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using a Non-Toshiba supplied "docking station" on a Toshiba consumer grade "Satellite" laptop ?

I had purchased one of Toshiba's PA3575U-1PRP dynadock U Universal USB Docking Stations, but found the video performance so bad that I returned it. Even non-movie type applications, such as loading web pages, were excruciatingly slow, choppy and painful. And yes, my Toshiba laptop is up to the task being a late model with Dual Centrino Core 2 processor / 2-GB RAM / 7200RPM drive / 128-MB of shared video.

I see where both Belkin and Kennington offer similar units. (Note, on the NewEgg site the Kennsington model is also rated as being very poor in video response as well !!) There may be others ?

What has been your experience and your recommendation ??

Ideally, I want to be able to connect my Toshiba laptop with a single cable and not have to mess around screwing in the monitor cable, along with plugging in the PS2 plugs for the mouse and keyboard. Something you have to do if you simply rely on just a USB port extender.

Thanks

At my work, I have a laptop that is hooked to a docking station. I've only been here for a little while, so yesterday was the second time that I undocked it. The first time, I did not use a power cord when I undocked it. It worked fine when out of the station. I used a power cord the second time. Before I left work, I put it back in the docking station, and I left. This morning, the laptop wouldn't start (in the docking station). I removed it from the station and tried to start it without the station. It still wouldn't start. Finally, I used the power cord and it began charging and would also start. After a while, I tried putting it back in the docking station, but it still would not charge. So right now, I am undocked and charging with the power cord.

Purchased a Winstars Docking Station at Maplin today (see link below for product details).

The box says XP, Vista and W7. A techy at Maplin assured me that it was a "bog-standard" USB hub and that it would work with no problems with W8.1 (and it is a W8.1 computer that I want to use it with).

No, it does not work with W8.1 (see Screenshot attached for error message)

There is nothing wrong with the unit itself. Tested on other computers (XP, Vista, W7) - installs automatically, visible in Explorer, visible in Disk Management, works with all types of disk media. Perfect - except that it does not work with W8.1.

I have updated the Driver. Rebooted. Tried different USB ports. Same error message.

Hey guys,

Working with a Dell Latitude E6410, upgraded to Windows 7, i5 processor, solid state drive. When running the computer on a docking station, it works perfect for 5-10 minutes. Goes though encryption software fine, boots Windows fine. Can log user in, load browsers, play audio through the docking station, etc etc. After a short while, it randomly goes into blue screen.. Error: "IRQL Not Less or Equal"..., and reboots. Replaced motherboard, problem still exists. Reformatted solid state drive and reloaded Win 7... still happens.

Keep in mind this is ONLY when plugged into the docking station. Also blue screens on other docking stations as well.

Any idea's on what this could be? I can't get the exact codes from the BSoD right now, but any insight on what to look for would be great.
