Headphones not working with Latitude E7450 and E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator

Q: Headphones not working with Latitude E7450 and E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator

I recently started using the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with my Latitude E7450, but the headphones are not working. Sound comes from the laptop itself, even when the headphones are plugged into the dock or laptop. The headphones work with other devices, and the laptop works with the headphones when it is not docked.

Here is my situation,
I own a Lattitude E7450, and needed to connected two displays to it. I went ahead and bought the Dell E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator with USB 3.0, since it has 2 DVI ports on the back. It shows it is compatible with my laptop.
I set up my dock, connected my laptop, as well as both external monitors. Only one monitor shows a duplicated desktop. When I go into the display settings, I cannot see any existence of another external display being connected.
All of my drivers are up to date, restarted laptop many times. Pretty bummed out.
Anyone have any solution/knowledge to this?

Has anyone had any issues with the Precision 7510 only outputting through one DisplayPort output on the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator?Our organization recently started to introduce Precision 7510 units to our employees, and we're finding that they will only output to one single monitor connected via DisplayPort through the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicators - even though there are two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs on the E-Port Plus APR. If the monitors are connected via DVI, the Precision 7510 is able to output to both of them through the E-Port Plus APR. We have tried Precision M4800, Latitude E7450, and Latitude E7470 units in these E-Port Plus APR's with two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs - and they all work correctly.The Precision 7510 units have the NVIDIA Quadro M1000M video cards, and the E-Port Plus APR's are connected to either a pair of P2417 monitors or a pair of U2414 monitors.

Hi Guys,
I just bought a Latitude e7450 and I am trying to use it with my PRO3X e-port docking.
I have found some issues but the most annoying one so far is the imposibility of using the Power button on the dock to start the laptop. The Power button is blinking (blue) but I cannot use it to power up or power down the laptop.
Am I missing any setting on my laptop? Is there a problem with my laptop? The docking worked fine for the past 4 years with my Latitude 6320 so I suspect there is nothing wrong with the docking.
I have installed the latest BIOS update today.
Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

We're experiencing serious issues with 7270 laptops in our company (around 300 laptops).
While connected via docking station (USB port replicator) something is constantly swiping the touchscreen making the laptop unusable (prevents users from typing the user ID, password).
The only resolution is to shutdown the laptop removed it from docking station and start it again.
As a workaround we're disabling the touchscreen in device manager (which is not the best solution).
All the drivers are up to date as well as Microsoft Updates.
We're using Win10 x64.
Any help is much appreciated.

I have two U2715H monitors connected via one mDP->DP cable each to an E-Port Plus docking station (actually a EURO2 Advanced Port Replicator) in which is seated a Latitude E7450 laptop. All items are brand new. The E7450 is equipped with 16 GB RAM and two graphics cards: Intel HD Graphics 5500 and NVIDIA GeForce 840M; selection is automatic, which usually means the 5500 is in operation. It runs Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64 bit). The docking station apparently has DP 1.2a capabilities (for daisy chaining) but DP 1.2 is disabled in both monitors.
I have successfully set up the system to have the Windows desktop span both monitors at 2560x1440 resolution, even with the Latitude's internal screen as a third extension at its full resolution (1920x1080). The Main display may be set to either of the two (or three) and I can successfully move the sequence of the monitors around (left, middle, right).
So there is no doubt about the system's capability to support the intended configuration. However, when I dock the Latitude (mostly with the lid shut) and boot it, most of the time it cannot reestablish the configuration of the two external monitors. Some of the symptoms are: One or both monitors go black, indicating cable connected but no signal arriving from the docking station. If there is a picture on one of the monitors at startup, it may or may not contain the login screen. (I can still log in because I know what keystrokes to send.) If the login screen is visible, ...

A:Latitude E7450, E-port 2, U2715H - dual monitors - unstable configuration

No responses, so I will add my own, on the way towards a solution, which I believe requires driver enhancements. Are you listening, Dell?
Together with a colleague who knows better than me what to look for, we discovered:- The Intel HD graphics control panel -> Display port topology only discovers one, not two display ports. This could be a problem with the panel or with the graphics driver.- Both Intel and Nvidia have more recent driver releases for their respective hardware components in the Latitude E7450 than those available from Dell but they cannot be installed directly. (NVidia 353.06 vs 341.27; Intel vs - I suspect digits 5 and 6 reflect an OEM numbering scheme). Intel says their driver update includes critical fixes for display support.- When we attempted to install the latest Nvidia driver, the display flashed in what seemed to be a non-trivial manner (before the update was automatically aborted). This could be related to a conflict between the two drivers.
I also discovered that even when only one of the Dell U2715H monitors is connected, it frequently goes black when it shouldn't. So it is not a question of a dual monitor configuration as I originally thought. I have also swapped docking stations to eliminate random hardware error in this component. The Intel driver's handling of display port(s) seems to be the most likely culprit.
Guessing from seeing repeated patterns of monitor behavior, a more precise diagnosis could be t... Read more

I have a Dell Latitude e6440 (Intel+AMD video) with the newest BIOS A18 and the newest video drivers.  It is connected to an ePort Replicator 0PKDGR.   I have a Displayport cable connected between the ePort and an ACER 43" 4k UltraHD monitor at 3840x2160.
When I resume the Laptop from sleep/standby/hibernate, the screen flashes bars and sometimes completely turns off for a few seconds.
If I reboot, then everything is fine.
I've tried:

Making sure the bios and drivers are all up to date.
I had an unrelated issue about 2 months ago, and my motherboard and cooling fan were replaced.  So I'm assuming the motherboard is newer/better if there was ever a fix for this issue, but not entirely sure.   Since the Intel/AMD graphics are on the motherboard.  They were replaced.  The issues remained before and after.  
Tried turning off hibernate.  Using only regular standby.  Issue persists.
Tried turning off standby and only using Hibernate.  Same issue
It seems to happen more when the system is being used more.  Cooling fan runs more often.
Tried a different Displayport cable
Tried a different displayport connection on the EPort, DP1 vs DP2

Might be a coincidence, but I was just trying something and switched my monitor from Displayport 1.2 to 1.1.  The resolution of the display went down to 2k.   Then I switch back to DP 1.2 and the issue seems to have gone away.   I'm going... Read more

I have a Dell Latitude E7450 laptop with a E-Port Plus II port replicator connected to two external monitors using DisplayPort which will not output to multiple monitors.
I have another Dell model and when placed on the port replicator with two external monitors connected, booting into BIOS/UEFI the screen is cloned onto each monitor. However, when doing the same with a brand new Dell Latitude E7450 only one screen is active - the other is off. Within Windows itself, I can only have 1 monitor connected to the port replicator. If I undock, I can run 3 monitors independently indicating an issue with the dock rather than a hardware limitation with the laptop itself.
I believe the above tests eliminates the OS or driver issue and highlights a compatibility issue between the new Dell Latitude E7450 laptop and E-Port Plus II port replicator. I have tried this on 2 separate machines with the same results. I have also updated both the graphics drivers (Version, A16) and the BIOS (Version A04) to the latest releases. I have also tried using DVI cables as well as swapping out the port replicators. Nothing works. In Windows 8.1 itself, it actually shows as two monitors active, but one is not on. If I swap out the monitors to a different brand, I get the same result.
Is there a BIOS/UEFI setting I need to change? Is there a newer port replicator or update I need?

A:Dell Latitude E7450 compatibility with E-Port Plus II with external Dual DisplayPort monitors

Did you resolve this issue and, if so, how? I have the same laptop (but running Windows 10) and the same docking station with the same results.

Recently we've seen increasing issues regarding the combination of the E-Port II Replicator PR03X and Latitude E5530 and E5540 Laptop Models.
The most common issues are:

Windows Crashes when docking/undocking (with an open or closed lid)
Wi-Fi does not function properly after undocking

Another issue which also came about around the same time which may or may not be related: Windows crashes when the lid of the respective models are closed (without being docked to the E-Port Replicator).
Things which were already tried:

Updating the BIOS and Drivers (Except for the Graphics Drivers, more on that later) of the laptops
Updating the MST HUB Firmware of the Latitude E5540 laptops (I don't seem to be able to find any for the E5530)
Updating the Graphics Drivers(with Dell Drivers), which failed with a generic "The setup program failed to install one ore more device drivers, Setup will now exit."

-> The respective driver installer names are: Video_Driver_JVC00_WN32_10.18.10.4176_A17.EXE & Video_Driver_FGGYJ_WN32_10.18.14.4280_A17.EXE
I'm personally suspecting that , because of the suddenness of the issues, a Windows Update may be the cause but that's just a guess. A full reinstall of the affected systems seems to cause the issues to disappear but I don't see this being a solution really.
Any suggestions about this? I'm also wondering what's causing the issue with the graphics installer, I tried updating through the device m... Read more

I?ve had a Toshiba tecra M7 for the last few years and have just purchased a brand new sealed express port replicator II model PA3680E ( docking station ) but unfortunately it does not work and a new replacement sent from the supplier also does not work.

What happens:
With dock connected at boot-up; nothing happens and the green dock light stays off.

Under windows when I first put the tecra m7 on the dock it connects and then disconnects immediately and will not reconnect. The power supply port, lan port and power switch work on the dock, but I understand these are just pass through connections. The green power led also comes on for less than a second.

For example when I do a hot dock, windows does the connection chime followed immediately by a disconnection chime and will not reconnect, also any connected USB devices flick-on and immediately off.

I?ve tried it under the original Toshiba windows XP install (with all latest Toshiba updates) and under a fresh windows 7 install (fully updated with all available Toshiba update). Bios is the last available 3.50 (also tried bios 1.70 & 3.20). tried bios USB legacy on and off.

Can anybody please help

A:Tecra M7 & express port replicator II PA3680E-1PRP are not working together


> With dock connected at boot-up; nothing happens and the green dock light stays off.

The green light which is placed near the eject button should glow green during normal operation and should turn off if the notebook has been disconnected.

If the light does not glow green, then I assume the notebook is not connected properly.

If you connect the notebook for the first time to the port replicator, an message should appear indicating the device connected to the port replicator are ready to use.

In my opinion there could be an issue with the pins or connectors?but the question is which connector could be affected: on Tecra side or port replicator side?

However, I think you should contact your dealer and should test another one.

My laptop had headphones plugged in because I was watching a film, but while I was in another room, my laptop was knocked onto the floor (around 1.5-2 ft drop) landing on the headphones jack, the wire is fine, but the ports completely broken, I can see cracks and its loose and everything

The laptop has Realtek HD audio manager, and in my experience of this program on other desktops I've had, I was able to change what port does what.

My laptop only has a headphones port and a mic port, and I would like to see if I can switch the mic port to be the headphones port because I never use an external mic, however in Realteks audio manager I can't find out how to do this. In pictures I've seen on the internet there is a "Device Advanced Settings" button (as seen in this picture http://www.vistax64.com/attachments...ealtek-hd-audio-driver-version-hd_manager.jpg) but my program doesn't have this.

Do I need to download a newer version of the software? or is it just not possible to change my mic port to be my headphone port? I dont mind if I have to use third party software, I just want it to tide me over till I can get it sent away.

Thanks for suggestions, greatly appretiated

A:Realtek HD audio manager, change a mic port to a headphones port?

I doubt very much if this will be possible. The mic and headphone ports are wired directly to the Audio section of the motherboard, there connections cannot be altered.

Your best bet is to get the damaged port repaired.

As mentioned in the title I have both pieces of hardware.  I also just purchased a third Dell U2414H LCD monitor.  I am trying to connect all 3 via display port.  However it seems that all I can do is 2 monitors?  When I try to daisychain them I got 2 monitors mirroring each other and one through HDMI off the laptop.

Is this a physical limitation of the replicator?  Is there a firmware update somewhere?

A:Dell Latitude E6520 & E-Port Plus 2 - Display port issue

The E6520 comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000.  The specs for that GPU are buried in the specs for the CPU itself, but if you go to ark.intel.com and look up your CPU, then scroll down to the graphics section and verify that it shows Intel HD Graphics 3000, you'll find that that GPU only supports 2 independent displays, which is why you see mirroring.  More recent Intel GPUs do indeed support 3 displays, but no Intel GPUs to my knowledge yet support 4.
If your E6520 has the NVIDIA discrete GPU, I can't find any information on NVIDIA's site about maximum number of supported displays, but based on your experience I would assume it's 2 unless indicated otherwise.

I am looking for a port replicator or docking system. I want to be able to plug my laptop into it and use my normal keyboard, monitor and mouse. It has to have dual video though.

A:Looking for a port replicator

Dells do not suck. There are a great number of Dells with huge numbers of happy owners. Some of the cheap ones suck. And some with the wrong owners suck.
There are many port replicators, and many are sold on eBay and at Dell support sites.
But I would get my boss to buy a Dell that has a specific port replicator...
Or else I would learn how to burn my files to disk, or a backup external hard drive.
We need to know which Inspiron, age, operating system, memory, hard drive and such.
I would want to back up my data to an external hard drive, then tune up the existing install.

I'm having a problem with a dell Inspiron laptop that seems to have a loose ac port. If I hold the plug in, it will boot and start up. As soon as I let go of the plug, it shuts off. I've read that a port replicator or docking station will take care of this problem. If I do that, will it be a work around or will I still have to take this thing apart and repair the broken port? If I still have to fix it, then I don't see any reason to buy a replicator.
Thanks in advance.

I have a Dell Latitude E7440, Windows 7
The HDMI-port has been working fine for two years attaching to varius units - projectors, TV etc.Last year it stopped to work with one projector (where it uasually works) so I just used the docking station and an VGA cable instead - did not have time to look for what went wrong. After that, a few months later, the next device stopped to acknowlagde the HDMI signal, now it was my standard Samsung LED-TV. OK, so I guessed that the HDMI-cabel was the problem, but after testing several HDMI cables with no luck, I rather thought that the problem was a physical problemen in the HDMI port at the back of the laptop. To shame, hard to fix that. I now realized that there actually where another digital port on back sida of the laptop, the mini displayport -maybe that one is working? So I bought a converter "mini display port to HDMI" - and whooho - it worked. But just for a few days.. :-(
Now I am back to use the docking station and VGA and as you can understand - that is really anoying.I have been using laptops for + 20 years now so I do think I have some experience. It is not an "Fn + F8" problem or a cable problem. Any suggestions?

Not sure if this is the correct forum. I tried searching but must not have used correct key words as nothing came up.

Dell Dock model PR01X which is as I read, a Port Replicator. Does not work on my Latitude D620 running Vista Home Premium. I've also tried XP Pro SP3 on the same machine and still, nothing on the Dock works except the power plug and one light on the top.

I searched Dell user forums. Found this problem has persisted for over 5 years yet Dell has still not addressed it. Many of those users have had some success by installing the XP copy of usb.inf. Vista would not allow that. So I loaded XP onto another drive, swapped it in. Still nothing worked other than the power plug and that one top light that comes on when the lid is lifted. The network cord would not 'pass thru'. I had to un-dock, plug the network cord in to get on-line and go to the Dell site to download and install drivers to get the wi-fi working.

A chat with Dell Tech about this Dock problem was a total waste of time. They wanted to either sell me support or sell me a different Dock. Done a lot of searches, and reading, something led me to Dell R181862 which is Dell Notebook system Software Utility. This installed Client Configuration Utility allows my to edit the system Bios. I used that to add 'Docking'. After making those changes I found during Setup there is now 'Docking' listed and made those selections. It didn't change a thing. Nothing on the dock work... Read more

Hello 2 all!

At the moment I'm working with two external 19" TFT screens connected to the Port Replicator II (Tecra S10-160 inside with display closed). One screen is connected to the available DVI port, the second one is connected to the available VGA port on the Port Replicator II.
One screen (DVI) is used as primary desktop, the second one (VGA) is used as enhanced desktop (so both show a different content).

My problem is the poor quality of the VGA signal and the problem, that my two new screens only support DVI.

Is there a possibility to connect two DVI screens to the DVI-D of the Port Replicator II? I already checked several DVI-Y-cabels but I'm still looking for a solution to connect two screens via DVI with the function to get two shared screens and not the same content on both screens.

Hope you got my point and have some information or product ideas for me.
Thanks in advance.

Have you already tested a VGA to DVI adapter? So you can use the VGA connector on port replicator and the DVI port of your monitor.

I mean such a cable like THIS ONE

Using such an adapter you can still use the function to get two shared screens and not the same content on both screens. :)

Hello All, I wonder if the panel can help with a small problem Im having with my Home Office

My kit is a Toshiba Tecra M11 with Win 7 Enterprise, which I use with an Express Port Replicator and which I have just upgraded from a Seimens Lifebook, also with a docking cradle. The way i like to work is to use the laptop to log on to the central company network over the internet by VPN then use my Home PC to connect to the laptop via RDC - so I can use the widescreen monitor and large keyboard (my work involves very large excel spreadsheets). This worked fine with the Siemens, and mostly works with the Toshiba, but for one small problem.

After I have logged on to the network and connected to the laptop, I like to put the lid down, then put the laptop and its docking cradle out of the way on a shelf. This worked fine with the Siemens, but everytime I try it with the Toshiba it puts the machine into standby as soon as the lid closes and the RDC session on the main PC hangs. The Toshiba is mounted on its docking cradle throughout this process. Both the laptop & docking cradle and the main pc are all connected by a wired link to the same netgear router

How do i stop this happening, ie how do I use the unit on its docking cradle with the lid down ?

It's difficult to imaging that two different units are broken in the same place. Things I want to know:What happens if you just connect power and LAN? Do the LEDs light up, just like when you hook up a LAN cable to a PC that is turned off? If so, then I need to get yet another replacement from HP. Mines don't light up no matter what I do.  I appreciate any comment/suggestion on this. Thanks, Ken

I bought an HP 3005 port replicator to use with my HP Spectre x360 - 13-4109na. When on its own, the laptop performs just fine. When I connect it to the HP 3005 port replicator, the laptop slows down significantly and becomes a nightmare to use. I have not been able to remedy the issue. Also, the drive of the port replicator is set to "read only" and I have not been able to amend this. What can I do?

> What can I do? Measure, measure, measure. Use the Windows "Task Manager" or the "Process Monitor" to view the resources (CPU, RAM, disk-drive, Internet) that your computer is using, to try to identify which application is consuming the most resources. Windows has an option to virus-scan (and also to run Disk Defragmenter) all newly-attached disk-drives -- that can take a while.

Just done a fresh install of Win10 and I'm getting really poor performance from my Precision M6800 when connected to the E-Port II replicator, it can take 4-5 seconds to switch tabs in task manager, all screen re-draws are terribly slow.
When the laptop is running stand alone all is fine. 
I just checked and there are no drivers for the replicator, but does anything updated as far as the graphics to power this dock.  Could be a faulty dock but then it's a bit of a coincidence that it only happened after the OS upgrade. 
My twin Dell U2412 monitors are connected to the dock via DVI. 
Also, anyone know if it's possible to test the docking station?

I have a sony viao which restarts all of a sudden when I plug it into my port replicator. Otherwise it works fine.

I checked the log and it gives me "ds1410d service failed to start" error log. It seems like a hardware device is looking to load the driver.

Can I post a minidump from that laptop and somebody willing to help me?


A:Laptop Restarts when in port replicator

Thanks Rick. The problem is I dont know which hardware device is causing the malfunction. I checked vaio's site and searched for the error but couldnt find anything. I really dont know which driver to update. So thats why I was wondering if anyone can help me out.

I want to connect my desktop monitor, and keyboard to my laptop.
If I do can I still use the USB ports on my laptop to connect my mouse, external disc drives,

Should I use a docking station or port replicator?
Can you recommend a good reasoable docking station or port replicator?

A:Docking Station VS Port Replicator

I just found out DEll Inspirons do not have a docking station port.
Looks like I will have to use a USB connected port replicator.
Any comments on this option greatly appreciated.

OK, I'm using an HP Spectre i5 notebook upgraded to Windows 10 together with an HP 3005 pr USB 3.0 Port Replicator. The Port replicator has one USB 3.0 connection to the notebook and my network connection, audio connection, external USB hard drive, wireless mouse and keyboard and monitor all connect to the Port Replicator. It works well, actually it's a great setup, but I have no way of knowing if I have the latest drivers fokr the Port Replicator.  I downloased what looked like the newest driver from the HP website and tried to install it and it said there was an older driver installed, did I want to remove it.  Rather tentatively it said yes, then it asked me if I wanted to reboot now and told me to select 'No' if I was going on to install new drivers.   But that just threw it into a loop. So now I don't know what will happen when I do restart. Assuming that doesn't cause a problem how do I check the current driver version, and how do I upgrade to a newer version - and which one?
