I originally bought an advanced dock with the official "Lenovo ATI x1300" preinstalled and sent to me. On the first attempt I placed my thinkpad on the dock, and in no time the graphics card was recognized and I installed the driver from Lenovo's site. After being instructed to restart the Thinkpad, it went through the loading process. Except this time the computer stopped at the Windows XP loading screen. I thought of it as a fluke and simply restarted it again, but this time it froze after logging on(with no applications other sthan Norton, picassa, message center, and Steam.) The attempts would continue for hours with no avail. And in some cases freeze before the OS would even load. Finally I called Lenovo requesting a new dock and GFX card. Except they sent th dock without the graphics card. Because of the way the card acts when its pluged in I can't even afford to have the Ati card in the dock or it will freeze. So far I have attempted; system restore, bios, undock & hot docking, Device manager, and reverting to factory settings. If not my computer can this be a problem with the graphics card itself? Why is this happening? And if so what can I do about it? Comments and questions welcome Message Edited by Holy_Colt369 on 08-28-2008 06:19 AMMessage Edited by Holy_Colt369 on 08-28-2008 06:30 AM

I recently upgraded from an EliteBook 8570w to a ZBook 17 G2.  I had 3 external  monitors working on the 8570w with Windows 7.  My ZBook is running Windows 8.1 (64-bit), however, I can only get 2 monitors running at the same time.   My docking station is an HP Advanced Docking Station (A7E38AA), and the displays are all HP's.  1 is a Z24i connected with DisplayPort, the 2nd is a ZR2440w also connected with DisplayPort.  The 3rd is another Z24i connected with VGA.  It is the VGA display that is not working currently. I've tried updating the drivers and that didn't work, in fact since I updated the driver, the 2 working displays screens seem to flash off and back on at random intervals (almost like the display settings were changed).  I also tried to connect the VGA monitor directly to the VGA port on the laptop and did not get any results. The 3rd monitor is simply just not being detected.  If I look at the NVida Control Panel, it is only showing the 2 displays, as does the Windows Display Settings.   Any ideas?  Is there something I am missing, or is this a Windows 8.1

Hi psubsee2002, Can we test the VGA input of the monitor and VGA cable to make sure they are not the root cause. I would like you to get a known working VGA cable and a knonw wokring monitor. If the VGA input of the monior and VGA cable is good, pleas try the following: Go into BIOS -> Advanced -> Device Confirugation -> Disable "Hybrid Graphic." By doing this, it will only allow the unit to use your Nvidia video card rather than your onboard Intel graphic and Nvidia. Since you're connecting to multiple monitors, lets use the Nvidia graphic which can handle graphic at better rate.  Thank you, -Tenzin

I just got a Z60t at work. I had been using a dual monitor setup, but it doesn't look like my current config is going to fly w/ the new machine. Anyway, here's what I've got: Primary monitor: Acer AL2416W (1920x1200 DVI)Secondary monitor: Dell 1901FP (1280x1024 VGA) I've read that the advanced dock might be able to let me use this setup with the Z60t if i put a PCIe video card in it. So here are my questions: 1. Will the advanced dock + PCIe video card allow me to run the two monitors listed above (I don't use the laptop screen at all)?2. Which PCIe cards are compatible with the advanced dock?3. Can I achieve the same resolutions with the advanced dock + PCIe card?4. Will I need to split the VGA output, or can i use VGA + DVI like I do now (since the Z60t has no native DVI support)? thanks!

Hi -We have a couple of advanced dock 2503's with T60Ps running Win XP that have been working great with a Matrox M9140 LP quad card and 6 screens for years. We have also successfully used x32's with the Dock II and Matrox G450's quads. Our T60p's are faltering with age and one of our software programs now requires Win 7 to run. Since we are on a really tight budget and have spare advanced docks and graphics cards we are trying to upgrade to refurbished off lease T400's which are the supposed to be the last 14" T series supported on the advanced dock 2503 along with the 15i"T500. So now, we are trying to dock our T400 with Windows 7 with the same configuration and the laptop will not boot on the dock.The T400 starts to boot, does not even get to the Thinkpad splash screen with nothing ever appearing on any of the screens, shuts down, then starts to boot again and repeats this over and over.The computer will boot fine on the dock without the Matrox card installed. We have not installed Matrox drivers yet, as the correct procedure to get a graphics card to work in any Thinkpad Dock, including the advanced dock to work has always been to first change the BIOS Display Primary Video Device to PCI Express then put the laptop on the dock, then boot, then install the drivers. (After that you can change the bios setting back and run 6 screens - lcd, vga out of dock , and 4 off the matrox card). I don't think drivers would install anyway without the machine having already recognized th... Read more

A:T400, Advanced Dock 2503, Windows 7 64bit, Matrox ...

Two things I would try. First, try booting the T400 in the dock but without the Matrox card. If that works, then try booting in Safe Mode with the Matrox card. My suspicion is with BIOS set to PCI express, Wndows trys to use the Matrox, fails and restarts. Usually Windows will load a generic driver but thatt may not be working for some reason. Try booting with the Intel graphics enabled then Add Hardware, install the Matrox drivers and then change the BIOS back to PCIExpress.

You can use MSconfig to diagnose startup issues. Visit the following link for details;

You can post back with any questions regarding your system services and startup entries to establish their purpose and whether or not they are required at startup.

Taskbar icons are just shortcuts and do not effect the time it takes for starting a computer.

Hello.

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E545 laptop with 64bit Win7 Pro SP1 pre-installed;
hard disk:
WDC WD3200LPVX-08V0TT5 320GB

512 bytes logical, 4096 bytes physical (I think this is called Advanced Format "512e")
5400 rpm
SATA 3.0, 6.0 Gb/s

Questions:

For the system described above, which of the following combinations will reliably create a usable (restorable) system image backup?

1) Win7 backup and restore using a Seagate FreeAgent 1000GB external USB drive*?

2) Win7 backup and restore using a Seagate STCP3000100 3TB external USB drive?

3) Clonezilla 2.2.3-25-i686-pae using a Seagate FreeAgent 1000GB external USB drive*?

Thank you.

SATA 2.6 3.0 Gb/s

A:Win7 system image backup advanced format compatibility

The 3 GB options are too small.
If all you have is one partition go for Windows 7 backup, clonezilla sometimes causes errors on boot after restore and you might need to perform a "start up repair"
This being said it is not a good idea to have a 360GB partition. Backups are going to be very large! My preferred option is to keep 60GB for the OS, have 100-150 GB for my personal files (docs, pics, music, outlook and FF backups) and leave the rest for other stuff (I have a large collection of software and CD/DVD images, I move the downloads and temp folders out of the OS partition....). This permits smaller backups and different backup schedules for the OS (monthly) and my personal files (daily). Also if the OS goes for whatever reason you still have your personal files. You can connect the drive to another computer and you are back in business.
If you do partition you might want to consider another solution entirely, for example Macrium Reflect free. Windows 7 backup can end up wiping all your partitions when you restore if you don't pay attention to the options during the restore process.

A:rocket dock or object dock? pros cons?

Hi Billy,

I don't know why, but I've always used ObjectDock and I've been perfectly happy with it. I don't use any dock software now though as I found I wasn't using it enough to make it worthwhile having - it was just annoying me when I wanted to click things towards the bottom of my screen.

They're both free, so I'd suggest trying ObjectDock and if you don't like it, try RocketDock

They both have a wide range of skins/icons available, so in my eyes, they're evenly positioned.

I have a HP Pavilion 13 X2 Model F0A05AVI have two batteries in the unit, one in the tablet section and one in the keyboard/dock section. Recently, I have noticed the batteries do not drain equally (not sure if they should) but when the total battery level hits 50%, the keyboard stops working along with anything else attached to the dock like the touch pad for example. The tablet portion works fine. When I check the battery level it shows the dock/keyboard (battery #1) at 0% or 1% and the tablet battery (Battery #2) at 95-100% or so.  Is there anyway to get the batteries to discharge together and or get the dock/keyboard to take power from the battery in the tablet?

As a newbie to this site, I am not sure exactly where to post this question, so Im guessing it is a hardware issue.

I recently acquired an IBM ThinkPad T20/T21. This unit contains what IBM calls an Ultrabay 2000 port on the side of the unit. This is the source of my question/problem. The Ultrabay port and software allows the hot swapping of the interchangeable FDD and a CD-ROM modules. Under the installed Win 95 OS, the Ultrabay worked fine.

In order to gain use of the USB port on the unit, I just completed an upgrade from Win 95 to Win 98 SE. I upgraded using an OEM disk and in the end wound up with both a Windows directory (for the Win 95 OS) and a Windows.000 (for the Win 98 OS) on the HDD. After a little re-mapping, Ive gotten the audio, video, modem and mouse/trackpoint to work fine. My problem is the Ultrabay. Even with the latest IBM drivers, the Ultrabay port/computer will not recognize the CD-ROM. If I boot up with the FDD installed, both Windows Explorer and the Ultrabay S/W recognize the module and everything works fine. If I then hot swap to the CD-ROM, the Ultrabay SW sees the drive but indicates it is inoperable by placing a large red X through its icon in the system tray. Windows Explorer does not see the CD-ROM at all and still reports an FDD. If I boot up with the CD-ROM in the port, Windows Explorer sees the CD-ROM and allows full use of it, the Ultrabay SW however continues to show the red X. If I try to hot swap back to the FDD the system loc... Read more

Hi!

I didn't know where to post this specifically. Hence I chose the General Support section.

I have a ThinkPad T530. The main disk is an SSD (on which Windows 8 is installed and is the primary boot device). In the ultrabay slot, I have a 500GB hard disk. There used to be an optical drive here. I replaced it with the stock hard disk since I needed storage more than optical drive.

Anyway, on startup (as well as resume from standby and hibernate), I don't need the disk to be recognized. I want it to be done manually. Is there a way to stop windows from recognizing the device every time it boots? Presently, I am doing a "Safely remove device" after every start up, which is kind of annoying.

Hope you got what I am trying to say.

Just as the title states. When the y400/500 were first announced and then released, I was so excited. Using the concept of removeable slots,, as found in business machines, to augment a gaming machine seemed like a brilliant idea. And it was, they sold like hotcakes. The y410/510p made some incremental improvements, like activating the iGPU with Optimus and increasing the resolution on the 14" model. As expected, they were popular as well. Then came the y40/50 and now the y700 series. Lenovo completely designed their gaming lineup, removing the ultrabay and cutting fuctionality. Why? I can have 2 full sized HDD/SSDs and a 42mm M.2 installed in my 14" y410p, but the 15" y50/700 only has 1 full sized bay. Just what. Then instead of 850/860M SLI we get a single 860M in the y50, which was updated to a 960M in the y700. Yes the 860M is a decent card, and beats the 755M handily, but it's practically on par with 755M SLI. I just find it strange that such a great concept on such popular machines was cut. I'm sure there were issues, but removing the ultrabay just makes Lenovo's newer laptops just another crop of mid ranged machines. They lost a lot of what made them special, and what I feel made the brand take off after the y580 generation.

Hello, I'm new to Lenovo and I'm about to buy one of the Y510P (59373392) with single graphics and the 1TB version.The last question I've got is whether it is possible to install an additional SSD via the DVD slot-in. I don't need the DVD drive, so it would be wonderful to install a 128GB or 256GB SSD. I've read some topics and saw that the motherboard doesn't have a mSATA connection but it must have a NGFF connection if I'm right. Since I'm not very experienced with laptops, here are a few more questions 1) If it is possible to install an additional SSD, what products are available?2) Where do I get the UltraBay adapter?3) Would it then be possible to make the SSD the bootable drive? Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone. I have recently got a new ThinkPad L540. Since I need to use Windows 7 (TrueCrypted company Installation on normal SSD) and Ubuntu I bought a HDD Caddy for the UltraBay together with a 1TB HDD. My problem is, that I can not select the second HDD (HDD1) in the BIOS to boot from. It does not show the name of the drive, just HDD1. HDD0 has a name that indicates that it is the Intel SSD. The new drive is visible and usable in Windows and when I use a USB-Drive to install Linux on that second Drive.Furthermore I switched the SSD and the HDD and the L540 boots sraight up into Ubuntu. When I switch back its boots Windows 7 again. During the Ubuntu installation I tried both, writing the GRUB2 bootloader to the root-partition or to the beginning of the HDD (schould be the same since the root-partition is the first on the drive). Gparted is also thelling me that the root-partition is bootable. I hope somebody has an idea!Thank you very much for your help in advance!!!

I have the lenovo y510p (59370015). It has a disk drive in the Ultrabay. Does this mean that there is no Nvidia graphics card in the laptop? If this is the case, then why are there a bunch of Nvidia files on it? If this is not the case then how do I get the card working, I see it with a Error Code 43 in device manager.

Got way too many ThinkPads around here and decided to retire my T61.  It had a 128gb Intel SSD I cloned it and installed a small hard drive so it can be reused/recycled.  I cloned my T400's HDD to the SSD.  Good for day to day use and I have gobs of cloud storage.  After 4 years or so the $00 gb HDD only took about half the 128 SSD.  My Ultrabay frame is supposed to be here tomorrow and I intend to install the 500 gb drive in it.  I'd like to use it for my primary storage.  I'm clueless as to the best way to do this.  I've never considered doing this before but realized that I hardly ever used the CD/DVD drive and unlike the MacBook, I can still swap them with out a set of tools and an hour or so to do it.

I have a thinkpad t430s and I bought a new supposedly oem lenovo 43 ultrabay battery. When I insert the battery it is recognized that a battery was plugged in but it stays at 0%. I've tried all different combinations of reinserting it before and after reboots turning on and off the ultrabay in the bios. The CD / DVD ultrabay drive works fine, although since the connectors inside are totaly different I doubt that is relevant info.What is the best way for me to figure out if the problem is this battery or the laptop? Or could it be a software issue... any help would be hugely appreciated. One of the main reasons I acquired this laptop was the use of the ultrabay batteries.Thanks

Hi everyone, If you don't want to read everything, just scroll down to the underlined part  For 3 years now, my Y500 (gt650m sli, second gpu in Ultrabay) had been working fine. But now, there is a problem. My primary gpu, i.e. the one attached to the motherboard, not the one connected via Ultrabay, appears to be broken.The Problem:Occasionally, the primary gpu has malfunctions. Therefore, I have to use the device manager to switch it off. Otherwise, my laptop tends to reboot out of an instant after running for some time. There are times when I can use the gpu for several hours without any problems, but there also are times when I cannot use it at all. When I switch it off in the dev.man., move my notebook, and switch it on again, there is a probability that the gpu might work. Hence, I assume a hardware issue.The Story:The problem first appeared after a really nasty circumstance; I took my notebook with me in its bag (a rather fluffy bag to prevent the notebook from blows) and suddenly, I realised that the bag became hot. The reason was a Windows update started out of standby... The notebook crashed with 34% of the updates installed. Afterwards, I had to reinstall Windows or nothing would work. (The crash at 34% seems to originate in the empty battery, but that's not for sure)After the reinstallation, said issue occured for the first time. Hence, I reinstalled the OS several times. Currently, I am using the OS from the OKR with the automatic (inescapable) updat... Read more

I would like to replace the DVD drive in a ThinkPad P70 with a 2.5" hard disk, and I have trouble finding the right adapter. I have found several references here and on other sites to the part 00NY314. I have ordered it from IBM, and it's indeed the right shape, but it's only the plastic shell with a metal bottom, and there is no connector for the HDD. Here's a picture of the part that I have received. Note the absence of connectors. ?I have called Lenovo support, and they told me that the part 0B47315 might be the right one. I have ordered that one, too, and while it has all the necessary connectors, it doesn't have the right shape, so I believe it's not appropriate for the P70. Did anyone actually order the part 00NY314? Were you able to connect the HDD? Where did you order it from? Did IBM ship the wrong part? What's the correct part number for the adapter?

Hello, I bought a y510p in december, and ever since getting SLI to work after the Win 8.1 upgrade, I've been completely dissapointed by the performance of the ultrabay GPU. It overheats and crashes the nvidia driver in minutes. While the on board GPU remains at acceptable temps, the ultrabay GPU will steadily rise in temperature untill the driver crashes, while playing somewhat demanding games like Bioshock Infinite, Witcher 2 or Wargame AirLand Battle. Ironically I get far batter performance in these games, if I disable SLI and only run the games on the on board GPU. In less intensive games like Red Orchestra 2, temps are not critical and SLI works fine - this is however a moot point, since I would be able to run these games just fine without an extra GPU. I paid a lot of money for that extra GPU, and seeing it being effectively useless is quite infuriating.  Inb4: Yes, I have the newest drivers. Yes, I've cleaned for dust. Yes, I've undervolted the CPU and underclocked the ultrabay GPU and drastically reduced the in game graphics quality - which brought me to the conclusion that I get better quality disabling SLI altogether.  Unless there is a solution to this, I will absolutely be taking the machine back, as in its current state, I feel that the ultrabay card is effectively useless. Futhermore I get the feeling that Lenovo just jammed it in there without any consideration as to whether it would actually work out practically.  Below i... Read more

Hello,

I am trying to get my Sigma USB dock and software to recognize the dock and lens. I will try to list as much information as possible.

USB Dock for Nikon
150-600 Contemporary lens
Windows 7 Pro SP1
Intel i5 with 16gb of memory
Verizon DSL (Not Fios)

The Sigma USB Dock allows you to fine tune the focus of the lens at different focal lengths and distances using the Sigma Optimization Pro software. You can adjust the vibration reduction settings as well. The computer needs to be connected to the internet for it to work.

I have tried two different USB Docks (sent the first back).

I sent in the lens and dock together to Sigma at the direction of Sigma after contacting their tech department. The technician tested both together. He could find no problems and found it connected properly to the Windows 7 computer he used. He felt it might be a security issue with my antivirus. I have tried connecting the antivirus disabled with the same results.

Here is what I am experiencing:
After opening up the Sigma Optimization PRO program it asks me to connect the lens to the dock then the dock to the cable then to the computer. When I do the light on the Dock comes on and a popup window appears on the monitor saying "Checking for the latest firmware..." A moment later a window appears saying "Cannot recognize the USB Dock". When I click the CLOSE button it begins checking if the latest firmware for the lens is available then a window appears... Read more

Hello, Last week i received my Y510P from a reseller here in Lithuania, and ran into a *slight* problem.When playing more demanding games (though i wouldnt call borderlands 2 a very demanding game), the screen freezes and the sound hangs. Occasionally the display would turn pitch black (sometimes the drivers just reset with screen backlight still on). I checked memory, sshd, cpus and main gpus for errors, but none were found. I have no idea how to test the ultrabay though... Temps are pretty high, but definetly not critical. CPU runs below 85c under load, main gpu runs at around 75c, only ultrabay runs hotter, but i've seen people saying that theirs run above 95c and it still works fine. Mine usually crashes when it reaches 91-93c. It reaches those temps in about 30-60 minutes, steadily heating up.  I tried removing and re inserting, but it didnt have any effect. Im stumped. Sorry for rambling on so long. I hope somebody can help me pinpoint the problem, and maybe help fix it.

Hello,

I recently had issues with my PSU and rather than play guesswork on whether its still functional, I rather just replace it.

My motherboard is a m3n78-pro. Its a bit dated but I'd like for this pc to last another 6 months before I build an entirely new rig. If I read the manual correctly, it requires ATX 12V V2.0.

The PSU I'd like to change to (since it just has to last another 6 months) this 900 w PSU. Would the m3n78-pro be compatible with this PSU? One concern I had was that the m3n78-pro requires a 4 pin ATX +12v connector. If I read the PSU's specifications correctly it has one 12V 8-pin (4 + 4) CPU power connector. Is that 8-pin two separate power connector, ie do I just use 1 of the connectors to fit into the 4 pin ATX +12v connector?

Please excuse my noobishness but what exactly does the v2.92 Motherboard specification entail? I tried to google it, but got less useful information and product results from newegg.

Also I read the wiki on the ATX 12V V2.X standard, but it didn't answer my question - is ATX12V v2.3 backwards compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

1. buy a Vantec Nexstar Dual SATA Hard Drive Dock (USB3.0) and then store the drives in a anti static bag or plastic case when not in use

2. buy a Vantec NexStar 3.5'' USB 3.0 Enclosure NST-380S3 for better protection and cooling

at the moment i only need 1 external green drive but i will add more in the future

would it be worth adding a product like this for some kind of cooling to the dock or no point because it wont be accessed for very long?

would anything bad happen to the drive because it pops up like a toaster or is it perfectly safe? lol

thanks

A:Dock Vs Enclosure

It's mostly a personal preference I would think. Since your stating your not going to be using the drive for any length of time cooling shouldn't be an issue.

When I have the funds I'm going to go the way of the dock since it can be used with either a 3.5 or a 2.5 inch drive and some can be hot swapped. Just is a more versatile usage situation.

Two and a half years ago I did a thread on external hard drives (HDs)

http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-...ard-drive.html

Brand name external HDs have become very common nowadays. You just buy 'em & connect 'em & use 'em.

But for some of the newer members/users, I thought maybe they might like to know about some of the other devices that are available when working with extra HDs.

Hard Drive Dock

There are two different kinds of HD docks, internal and external.
They basically do the same function but in slightly different ways.

The internal is just a shell that fits in a drive bay to allow easier access.
It has some adapter connections that allow it to connect to the motherboard
inside the computer.

An external dock can hold the drive in an enclosure or an open exposed
cradle like unit. These units have some small circuit boards inside that help
with the electronics needed for the external connection. The connection can
be USB or eSATA. They all have an external power source.

There are units that are for the older IDE type HDs & for SATA HDs.
There are units that can fit a desktop HD or a laptop HD.
There are units that can hold two (2) HDs at the same time for data
transferring.
There are even some combo units that can handle IDE & SATA at the
same time.
I even found one that holds 2 SATA HDs and one IDE HD at the same time,
plus has 2 additional USB ports & some card reader ports.

Any body have suggestions on an external dock. Self powered with a sata connection. The ones I have been buying are lasting less than a year. If you box it up and ship it back, you have almost the price of a new one. I want one that the disk is easily unplugged and a different disk can be inserted.

I am using a Rosewill RX-DUS100 I got from New Egg. It's working OK so far, but I only use it every couple of months, so I can't speak to it's longevity.

It does have eSATA and USB 2.0.

Not sure what you mean by self powered.

Another alternative is a bare cable--no dock. I've seen the cables for $10 and it might be more durable. You just lay the hard drive on a table top and connect the cable to it.

A:HDD Dock advice please

I use a TT docking station and I like it very much. No external enclosure case to open up. Just slide the drive in and go.

BTW, you are wise to want to clear these drives before discarding them. If you have CCleaner, it has a wipe drive feature that will wipe (overwrite the entire drive with random 1s and 0s) these drives of all the old data.

That said, some docking stations are for SATA only, so if looking at ATA, make sure you get the right one. However, since this is just a one time action, it might be easier to just temporarily attach these drives to a secondary drive location in your current computer, then wipe them - instead of buying a docking station for the obsolete drive interface you may never see again.

Hi, I am looking for a docking station that will charge a Yoga 900, will drive an external 4K monitor, and has a USB port to connect a DVD. Lenovo recommends Thinkpad USB Pro, but Lenovo says that this will not charge the Yoga. I don't know if the problem is with the Yoga or the dock. Are there any alternative products that will charge the Yoga and drive the display? Thanks

For docklets in the folder,right click rocket dock and click add item.
Then add it from the folder.
Program shortcuts can be added that way or just dragged and
dropped onto rocket dock.

Hello folks,
Currently I have a E7470 mounted in an E-Port Plus docking station. This dock is then connected to one monitor via VGA and another via DVI. Problem is the monitor connected via DVI won't display anything and doesn't seem to register within Windows that anything is connected. I managed to get this working for about 30 minutes yesterday, but after powering my laptop back on this morning I was back to one monitor. 
I read the E-Port Plus user guide and this seems like a supported configuration:

Laptop is running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 
Any thoughts?

I see several very creative themes for Windows 7 that are sporting the vista top dock.

Where can I find it?

A:Top dock for icons?

Do a Bing or Google search. Not sure what you mean by top dock.

If you mean applications like, "ObjectDock, or Rocket Dock," you can use Bing or Google to get a web site. Both the for mentioned are free ware and are easy to use and setup. And, can be a nice addition to your desktop. Used ObjectDock until Win 7. With the new superbar there has been no reason for me to use a docking program.

Hope this helps.

I installed Rocket Dock in an effort to avoid some UAC prompts. I liked it and was succesful in avoiding UAC prompts. But I could not get it to start on a system boot. I unistalled it. I will probably take another shot at it. So I was going to ask if any one else had a similar problem.

There was an entry in the registry to start it. I put entries in each user start menu. Everything looked fine. I could manually start it. Couldn't figure it out. One thing of note it was not installed on the system disk it was on another disk.

A:Rocket Dock

When first installing RocketDock you won't see it at all. The screens here however are a pictorial on things easy to follow since you will need to open up the settings screen for the various options.

i removed the HD from my old XP machine and put it in a SATA dock in order to copy music and pic files. i plugged into two different windows 7 machines and got the same results from both:

1. it appears under my c: drive in "computer" but just as "local disk (x)" with no volume info or space used/avail indicator.

2. double clicking the drive produces a long wait followed by: You need to format the disk in drive k: before you can use it. do you want to format it?

3. finally i get a message "x:\ is not accessible. Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a dock similar to the delldock. I have an alienware, so the delldock is unavailable to me. The feature specifically that I'm looking for that I love about the delldock, is that you can set up categories. You can have an button that, when hovered over, displays whatever short cuts you put into it. For example, you can have an internet button that expands into firefox, iexplorer, and google chrome.

Anybody know of a similar dock that has categories? I've tried rocketdock and objectdock and either can't figure out how to set that up on those, or it's just not available.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have a Dell E-Port Plus Docking station with USB 3.0 and I'm about the upgrade to a new ultrabook. I currently have a latitude which snaps onto the dock station.

From what I've read the ultrabook can't snap onto the dock...

Its possible to still connect the ultrabook to the docking station, and would it power the laptop still. Think it might be possible via USB 3.0, but I want to make sure before making the purchase.

Thanks

Steve
 

A:Old Dock, New Laptop

The dock appears to only support certain Dell Precision mobiles. It will not likely work with other models. Does the Ultrabook even have dock port? What model is it? If it does then you'd have to buy a compatible compatible OR if it doesn't you'd have to buy a USB dock. You cannot use your existing dock via USB nor can you charge the laptop through USB.

HP ZBook Dock with Thunderbolt 3 usb device issues. USB Keyboard randomly sends a stream of a repeated character.  I will be typing and mid worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr d will get results like in the word above.  The inverse happens alot too, were it just drops a few characters i have typed. USB Mouse lag is horrible. Both devices will stop functioning, need to reboot the dock to recover them. Any one have any suggestions or which drivers are the most stable?

#HPExpertDayYou will have to update BIOS/Firmware if any. Install the docking station drivers. Try using a different keyboard, if the issue stops then issue was with keyboard.http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07165
