I am looking for options for a docking station for this device. It looks like the HP Ultraslim Docking Station described at this link would be compatible, but it talks about HP Elitebook and not specifically for HP Envy models: http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/business-solutions/hp-2013-ultraslim-docking-station-d9y32ut-aba
Hi, The Envy x360 does not have docking port therefore any USB port replicator can do. Now you need to check your requirements, not for your x360 but how many devices you wish to connect (for example you want to connect two more monitors, external speakers ...) this will help you to make decision which one to buy. Regards.4 more replies
What Universal Docking Station do you recommend for my Spectre x360 13-4005dx? On the HP Store under Universal Docking Stations there are 4 to choose from. 2 that are Targus brand and 2 that are Belkin brand. I am aware there is not a docking port on my Spectre x360, but that the Universal Docking Stations are connected to the PC via USB 3.0. Thanks!
Any of those should work well for you; it comes down to the options and your personal preferences. Try the one that looks like it will best meet your needs.

I am wondering which docking station is compatible with the HP Envy 13-d008na. I can't find this information from this site. Is that because it's not compatible with any, or is the answer just well hidden? Thanks in advance for help!
Hi, HP ENVY 13-d008na does NOT have docking port therefore no docking station. You can only use USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 Port replicator such as: http://store.hp.com/us/en/mdp/accessories-88342--1/docking-stations-142510--1 Note: please select the one using USB only. Regards1 more replies
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:
Autorandr script is here: github.com/.../

HD Docking station
I bought an external HD recently & transferred from my PC's HD a 50GB backup file but, when I tried to see the stored file it did not work & had to return it.
I would like some advise on the item below, if anyone is using it.
If I put a HD in it can I transfer files from my PC to it?
Generic USB2.0&E-SATA To 2.5"/3.5" SATA Multi-Function HDD Docking Station All In One Card Reader
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.
I have not used a Docking Station before but thought this could be a possibility, on Amazon I found:
DUAL 2.5"/3.5" IDE SATA HDD HARD DRIVE DOCK DOCKING STATION IDE SATA eSATA USB ALL IN 1
Any ideas would be a big help. Thanks.

I purchased a refurb'd IBM THINKPAD 570. It has the docking station. I have never worked with a laptop before and do not know anything about them. My question is: If I am not using the CD/DVD, or floppy, what, if any, are the advantages to keeping it docked? If I play music in the Windows Media Player, does the docking station improve the sound quality?
...the docking station is just there so you don't have to screw around with cables every time you get into work. They don't improve anything except time management.
Is there a docking station compatible with the 450 G2 that anyone is aware of?

I just installed Windows XP Pro on a laptop here at work that we just bought. Everything went smooth execpt when I plug the network cable directly into the laptop I can not go on the internet, it goes to the classic "This Page Cannot Be Displayed" page. When I plug the network cable into the docking staion and then put the computer on the docking station it goes on the internet with no problems. Let me also say that when the network cable is plugged directly into the laptop it can goes anywhere on the network fine. I've even pinged computers in our New York City location with no problems. Lastly I took the computer home last night and pluged it directly into my DSL router and it when on line with no problems. I'm puzzled please help?
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.
Before I take it back to Maplin does anyone perhaps have a solution.....
Product Info Link : http://www.win-star.com/eshop/goods.php?id=81
the requirements description says
Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP/ VISTA and MAC OS 9.X, or higher

I need to find a compatible docking station for my notebook. Any suggestions? Thanks
Yes HP no longer makes true "docking stations" for its consumer laptops. A docking station is a snap-down platform that provides power to the laptop and replicates ports and allows for expansion such as additional hard drives, etc. Best you can do is to use a USB 3.0 "port replicator" many of which come with video and all the ports you could want but do not power the laptop. You still need to connect an AC adapter directly to the laptop to use the port replicator. There are lots of these on the market. HP makes one and others do, too. Post back if you need any help. Expect to pay around $100 +/- for one with video. https://www.amazon.com/HP-3005PR-USB-Port-Replicator/dp/B008KMDVPQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475009377...

I'm thinking about getting a docking station for my laptop, but I'm running into some confusions. First off, I don't know if my laptop is a ZBook 15 or a ZBook 15 G2. I think it's a ZBook 15 because it says "HP ZBook 15" on the bottom without the "G2" suffix. Also, it was issued to me by my university in August 2014, a month before the ZBook 15 G2 was announced. So unless my university was able to get early access to the G2's, it must just be a ZBook 15. Second, I don't know which docking stations are compatible with the ZBook 15. And I don't know what the merits of each of these docking station models are. I use a second monitor a lot with my laptop, which connects by VGA. So that's one thing I'd want the docking station to be able to support. Other than that I'd just want a bunch of USB ports, an audio port, and other stuff that I think is standard for a docking station. So, what advice can you give me?More replies

I bought an extra docking station for my EliteBook 745 G3. It was advertised as a D9Y32AA but is really a D9Y32UT.

Just got docking station, D9Y32AA, "2013 UltraSlim Docking Station". Connecting computer seemed to be straightforward and simple enough.

Go to Solution.
no replies...So does that mean there isn't one?that is a bit of a downer.Also, with regards to the max. resolution, surely that is a much more important feature to document on a laptop's specifications page, unlike rubbish like "onekey recovery", or the fact that it comes preloaded with a lot of bloatware like Accuweather.I assume that the lack of a display port will limit the direct connection to HDMI's maximum resolution of 1920x1200.Thus, the question about docking stations (or other USB 3 gadgets) that can support a larger resolution.9 more replies

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.
Do you remember the name of the virus and where it was...
What is or was the name of the Anti-virus on the computer that has the virus.
Do you have malwarebytes if not I would download it on the old system and run a full scan as it can pick up and delete virus's that others miss, here is the link and chose the free version..
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

I have just purchased a new computer with Windows 7. I use a REX 6000 PDA which I was able to install the software for desktop, etc. However, I am unable to connect my Usb docking station. W7 will not recognize it. Suggestions?
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.

We are running more than200 dell computers in our company. lately we purchased E7240 for some users but it looks like the AC adapter does not work with the Dell E-Port docking station we have and that cause the USB hubs not to function at all.
currently the workaround is to plug the AC adapter to the laptop instead of the docking station. is there anyone who had the same problem ? can give more information ?
our BIOS is updated to the latest version. also a message comes up when the ac adapter connected to the docking station before the windows boot up saying the ac adapter won't charge :()

I’m sorry to hear that, thanks for the post though! I have not seen this issue reported by other E7240 users so I would like look into this for you. Could you clarify a few things:
Are all 200xE7240 systems are having exactly the same issue on dock or if the problem changes system to system?
Are all systems using the same model AC adapters / Batteries?
When USB fails, are both system and dock USB ports not functioning?

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.

Sounds like the dock drivers you are using cannot be W7 compatible, that simple.
You'll need to check compatability and availability of driver updates with the maker.
My desktop speakers worked plugged into the Dell docking station using VISTA. Now, unless it's a total coincidence, when I installed Windows 7, the sound only comes through the laptop speakers --- unless I plug them directly into the laptop, then they work.

For some reason my CD-ROM doesn't want to work it seems like the drivers are installed but it gives an exclamation mark. I tried all sort of things like installing it and reinstalling it and I tried getting updates from Microsoft Updates. Also I tried getting it from Sony.com but it seems that since my notebook was made for XP it doesn't have any drivers for Vista. So I will have to find them myself somehow. I have Windows Vista Home Basic. My notebook is the Sony PCG-R505ESP. I really need help on this please since if I don't make my CD-ROM work then I can't install any programs that uses a CD.
I can say that Win XP and 2000 has no problem with the CD-ROM only Vista has this problem but it might actualy be the driver but I don't know.
On the device manager it says "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
I also looked to see if there is any filters on the regedit but there wasn't any so that is strange.
This is the model of my CD-ROM
"Sony i.LINK CD-RW DVD-ROM Drive IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device"
Just to let you guys know that my notebook is a docking system so the CD-ROM is attached to the dock.
Everything else seems to work perfectly fine but just the CD-ROM doesn't work at all.
I do know that when I talked to someone they said it was just the driver is not the version that the CD-ROM normaly works on meaning I might have to put the driver that comes with XP. The driver on Vista might be newer than the XP one so it doesn't work right since normaly my notebook came with XP.
But my questions is where can I get the XP driver?
I am trying to find some info on a ThinkPad docking station - 02K8660 Type 2631. IBM only lists the 02K8662. I have a T23 and an X22 and am afraid to dock and boot for fear of frying one or both. Any ideas where I might find documentation on it, and what model ThinkPads it's compatable with?
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?
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.
I have an ibm 760e thinkpad with a docking station type 3545-001. I need to reload windows back onto the pc via the cd in docking station. please can anyone tell me how I get the cd to work in the docking station and where I might find the driver for it. if I put the correct driver in a config.sys file will that do the trick?
I'm pretty sure this will give you what you need.

Just purchased a Thinkpad P50 and Thinkpad Ultra Docking Station before I head off to college in the Fall, and having the issue of the docking station not charging my laptop while it is running. If the laptop is closed down, it will charge the laptop as indicated by a little green light by the charging port, however as soon as I open the laptop and start doing anything, it will not charge anymore. The docking station is working fine otherwise, as indicated by an external monitor, keyboard, mouse, and hard drive all plugged into the docking station, not into the laptop. This is a brand new machine, I bought it and have had it for less than 10 days now. I spent alot of the morning on call with a Lenovo technician but couldn't resolve the issue; he recommended that I send the laptop back to them so they could replace/fix the motherboard.More replies
I'm desperately looking for a dock for my new Spectre, since it only provides USB-C. I've researched and learnt that the Spectre is not compatible with generic USB-C chargers, and only charges on HP USB-C chargers. Is there a compatible dock from HP in the works, or is there a third party one?More replies

2904 port duplicator
when my laptop is pluged into the docking station display is not working all of the time.(not hooked up to an external monitor)
every thing else is working
how do i check the laptop port, or can a selftest be run on the docking station?
There is only one way (assuming you don't make the things) to test this.
Hook up the laptop to another one (or hook up someone elses laptop to yours) - there is no other way to test something like this.

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.
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.
I'll have my laptop in my docking station and then I'll undock it to use it somewhere else in my house and the last two times I did it I got this error message. It never happened before the last two times.....am I doing something that could hurt my machine?
Problem Undocking From Docking Station
You cannot eject your computer because the service 'VgaSave', which controls one of the devices in the docking station, does not support Plug and Play and cannot be stopped. Contact the manufacturer of the driver for an update.
I am wanting to get a good Laptop Docking Station that I can have at the house to easily plug my laptop in when I get home, so I can use it on my Vizio TV
I've been checking around, but can't find one with a good rating from CNET, and just wondering if anyone had any ideas.
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 9300. Thanks
Just recently purchesed one of the All in 1 HDD Docking caddies from Ebay, but need some expert advice.
I am connecting a 200gb IDE HD which is being recognised as a removable disk, but not as a seperate HD.

To see the exact type of model I am using type: All in 1 HDD Docking - in google and its the first youtube result red front with a black body.
SEAGATE is the model of HD, 200gb IDE, power sounds when plugging in, therefore something is live.1 more replies

I have Toshiba Tecra in a docking station but can't get the BenQ monitor attached to the docking station to display. The plug in monitor displays OK at boot-up but as soon as the PC is booted up the plug in monitor drops out (No signal mesage) and the Tochiba screen kicks in.
Any help out there on fixing this problem ?
I have a client that has a hp laptop and accompanying docking station. The usb ports on the docking station suddenly stopped working. I replaced the docking station with a brand new one, worked for about 2 weeks, then crapped out again. While in the docking station, the hp usb ports work fine, only the usb ports on the docking station are out of order.
JohnWill gave me a usb hack about a year ago, and I ran that, and while it then recognized the the 'new hardware', it stated I had to reboot; rebooted, and nothing showed up.
Any ideas? The hardware is not local, but if push comes to shove I can get the make and model of it.

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.
Can anyone help me with this?
also, everything else is in working order when plugged into the docking station. The mouse, keyboard, internet, and monitor work fine. The only problem is the charging.
I have two users who both Dell Latitude laptop computers. When they power up the computers, they are able to set their graphics to the desired level (1280x760). If they power up the computers while on a docking station they are able to set the graphics to a different level (1024X768) and this works fine.
The problem they have is if the machine is already powered on (1280x760) and the dock the system, the graphics on the external monitor will go to 800x600, totally disregarding what they had set the graphics for. They are able to change it back and it is fine again.
Why does this only occur when the machine is powered on already and they are trying to dock it? Is there some setting that needs to be changed?
I appreciate your help!!
Please advise quick response requested (ASAP)! Need to recover old hard drives from HP laptop, Dell desktop & Western Digital external drive. Must have IDE, SATA capabilities and reasonably priced.

I work from a home office and my company has now supplied me with a business laptop as I was using my personal laptop. I would like to get a docking station which would be able to dock a Toshiba Satellite Series 1130/1135 (personal computer) during non-office hours and then Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 (smaller latpop) during business hours. Is there some type of universal docking station that would work with two different types of laptops? If yes, where would be the best place to buy one? I would have printer, internet, scanner and external hard drive hooked up to the docking station.
Thanks for your advise.
I don't think they even make docks for your Pro I couldn't find any at Toshiba's site.
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!
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.
My laptop pairs and works fine with a bluetooth speaker for audio when off the docking station. But at the office, on a docking station, the speaker does not work. It shows up in the bluetooth devices and pairs fine, but the audio only comes out the laptop. If I hook a speaker line from the speaker to the docking station, the speaker works. But I want it to work wirelessly. Is there some way to bypass this?More replies
Can say an HP use any docking station or replicator for any HP if all things (ie: vga vs hdmi or PS2 vs USB) are equal? I am buying a new laptop and trying to decide between two. I have both a replicator and a docking station. I looked them up but can't find specs on models they work on so I am thinking they are open as far as spec are right.
Are you looking them up on HP's website? I find it hard to believe that any HP docking station or replctr. will work with any HP laptop model. Check compatibility under HP
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.
Go to the Control Panel \ Administrative Tool \ Event Viewer and check the logs there for any errors that have occurred for the date and time of the BSOD. If you find the error in the logs you can copy and past the error here.

Hello Susan and welcome to TSG.
What laptop is it ? Please post the full details of the make and model, they will be on a label underneath.
When I plug my laptop into my docking station before I've booted the laptop will lock up. If I wait until it's booted it works fine. I'm using VGA and HDMI cables to the 2 monitors but playing around with configurations of the monitors doesn't seem to matter. It did work at one time but perhaps an update broke it. I've run the HP support tool to make sure I have the latest updates. Any ideas?More replies
