Aero turning itself off when docking/undocking

Q: Aero turning itself off when docking/undocking

Hello,

I have had this problem with both the RC and the RTM builds of Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on two different Dell laptops--a Latitude D830 and a Latitude E6500. Both are running nvidia Quadro display adapters (the D830 is a Quadro NVS 140M and the E6500 is a Quadro NVS 160M). In the case of the D830 I am running the latest drivers from nvidia's site (Dell didn't post Win7-specific drivers for this laptop). For the E6500 Dell has posted Win7-compatible drivers on its support site for the NVS 160M so that is what I'm using there.

In any case here is the issue. I install Win7 on the laptop and install the video drivers... native rez on the laptops is 1900x1200 (WUXGA). Aero glass is enabled and all is well and good.

I then take the laptop and connect it to the Dell-specific docking station (the D/Port in the case of the D830 and the E/Port for the E6500). In both cases there is an external monitor connected via DVI that also has a 1900x1200 native rez. The laptop lid is closed and the laptop is in suspend/sleep mode when docking.

Once in the docking station I power the laptop back on (it resumes from sleep) and then it goes about detecting the presence of the dock and the attached peripherals. The welcome screen comes up on the external monitor and I type in my password to get back to the desktop.

The only problem is that aero is now disabled (the taskbar and window borders are now opaque and aero peek no longer works, etc.). I have looked all over the net and tried all the "tricks" to re-enable it, the aero troubleshooting wizard, etc.--but nothing worked. By chance I discovered the only way to get aero glass enabled again is to attempt to change the screen resolution... it doesn't matter what I change it to, only that I change it to something other than 1900x1200. In fact, I can even hit "Revert" on the "Are you sure you want to change to this resolution" dialog and it will go back to 1900x1200 but aero glass will stay enabled.

This then works fine until I finish working on the dock and put the laptop back in sleep mode to undock it. When I lift the lid and the laptop resumes from sleep mode (now not connected to the dock and using the built-in display) the aero glass is again disabled. Again, the only way to get it back is to try to change the screen resolution to something else and back.

I originally experienced this problem on the E6500 with Win7 RC and assumed it was just a bug that would get fixed in the RTM, or that is was just a quirk of that specific laptop. So I was surprised to see the same behavior on the D830 with Win7 RTM using the very latest driver from Nvidia's site.

It's not the end of the world but it is annoying (I don't care so much about the glass stuff but the aero peek feature is handy). First of all, has anyone else here had a similar issue? Anyone have any ideas about how to fix this, or isolate the cause at least? I don't know if it's an nvidia problem (since both laptops are running nvidia graphics adapters) or a dell docking station quirk, or what.

Many thanks for any tips or advice.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am actually running into a very similar issue. If I try to use Aero Peek with two HD resolutions Aero Peek will disable itself. If I do a monitor that is mirrored Aero Peek works fine. I also have a Dell Latitude E6500. Have you found a resolution to this issue?

Anyone know of a solution for this? Almost every time I undock or re-dock my laptop after a meeting, something will be unresponsive, i.e. my Ethernet cable will fail to be detected or my wired keyboard becomes unresponsive. This is generally solved by a reboot (reseating the cable to the device that is failing has not generally worked), but I don't think this is necessary to solve the problem each time. I am still needing to look at things such as drivers (knowing that Windows 10 has its own method of fetching compatible drivers over HP Support Assistant or what's offered through the site). Specs: HP Zbook 15 G2Inten 6th gen I7 Processor16 GB RAMWindows 10 Professional 64-bit  Hardware attached to docking station:Wireless MouseWired KeyboardEthernet CableVGA cable to Samsung Syncmaster BX2431Power Cable

You can for USB docking ports
Usually by clicking "disconnect" on the connected USB device icon near your system clock

But for the ones mounted at the back (or underneath) and usually clipped in. No

I was messing around the other day and made some changes just for the heck of it. I went with the Windows Standard and adjusted my background color to my liking. It sure does make one heck of a difference in the performance of things.

I don't have a powerful gaming laptop or anything, but it sure has enough power to run everything on 64 Bit W7 just fine. It almost feels like enabling all the pretty eye candy inserts this little bottleneck. Try it for a little bit and you will see what I am talking about. It's kinda like going old school

Hi guys

For some odd reason Windows Aero keeps turning itself off as a theme and my computer keeps returning to the Windows 7 Basic theme....

I try switching it to Windows Classic to all the different Windows 7 Aero themes and all sorts, but all the Aero themes just show up as Windows 7 Basic.

I go out in the morning and it's all transparent and Aero is active, then when I come back in the evening without anything having touched the computer at all I find it has switched to Basic.

Restarting the computer solves the problem and it comes back on with Aero, but it is rather annoying...

Anyone had a similar problem or know what I might be able to do to resolve it?

Thanks!

I just realised this should have gone in the customization section of the forum so apologies for that.

I just recently reformatted so no idea what this could be. randomly my screen will flash black and then come on again. when it does aero on the windows and task bar will not work and will be a light blue / gray. giving it about 5 min fixes the problem but the monitor will remain off unless i move the mouse or type something. i have it set to never sleep , hibernate ect so I have no idea what is causing this. have windows 7 home premium 32 bit have 2 monitors 1 tv and 1 monitor hooked up to an 8800 gt if you need anymore info let me know thanks.

A:aero crashing / monitor turning off

Hi -

The flashing of the screen is indicative that a "Live Kernel Event" - 0x117 - took place. 0x117 = Video TDR timeout detected; the video driver failed to respond in the alloted time - usually 30000ms (30 sec), but ultimately did recover.

Check the Windows 7 Action Center/ Problem Reports for additional information -
START | type view all | select "View all problem Reports"

Make sure your video drivers are updated.

Regards. . .

As the title says, my PC will go from Windows Aero to Windows Basic 1 minute after being switched on. I have tried to turn aero back on from settings, but the option for peek is greyed out and the option for aero isn't in the performance tab. DWM is running and restarting it doesn't fix anything. I can't play any games as this issue also makes games stutter to the point of it being unplayable. Uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics drivers also didn't fix it.

Basically, Windows boots up, everything loads that needs to load, then the screen flickers and it switches to Basic.

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.

while undocked, have you checked Device Manager to see that the network adapter was present and had no driver issues.?? also did you click on Start >Settings> network connections to see that the Local Area Connection was listed with a red X on it??

Hello all. We are seeing this issue on a handful of T440's. When the user has the laptop docked and hard wired his network drives are connected and accessable. When they undock the laptop the drives is still showing but when they try to open any home drive folders they get the error " This file is currently not available for use onthis computer". The users are connected to our network wireless before they undock so it would seem that the connection to the home folders would still be there. Any help would be great. thanks, Matt

I have encountered an issue with the volume control on my T460S that occurs when I remove my thinkpad from the docking station hot.  The volume control goes all glitchy, flickering between ON and MUTE rapidly and popping the volume monitor (pictured) up in the top left of the screen on top of everything.  Hitting <Escape> briefly dismisses it, but it comes back randomly.  When I return the laptop to the docking station (hot) the problem goes away.  I've checked the Realtek driver, and it appears to be the most recent one.  Any ideas?   Windows 10Pro, T460s

Hi community, we are using several Thinkpads for years mostly without issues. But for a while now we have to experience issues with our T540p's in combination with pro and ultimate docks. And lately we also run into the same issue with a T570.Here our configuration, there are two external displays connected to the docking and one of them is the primary screen.And this is the issue: When we undock the T540p, the internal display should switch to be the primary and only display, but it doesn't. It seems to be that the T540p is still thinking to have external displays connected. The internal display is all black but I can move the mouse pointer from the right into the screen and can also move it out of the screen by pulling it downwards.All windows are opened on the virtual screen,which means I cannot see any configuration windows to change display behavior. Pressing Fn+F7 and up or down arrow blind does not change anything.It does not matter if I undock the T540p while it is running, or if I shutdown the system before undocking. When this error occurs it also does not matter if I connect an external display to the T540p directly, I still cannot see anything. To set the internal display to be the main display before undocking does not change the behavior anyway.If I put the T540p into the docking again, mostly everything is fine. The two external displays are running as before. If it was a desktop PC that would be fine but it is a notebook and we need to carry it with us an... Read more

Hello folks.... I have a Lenovo W540 which has a simple problem that is frustrating me to no end. Whenever I undock the laptop, or bring it out sleep, the screen remains blank. I end having to put it back in the dock (or RDP to it), which allows me to view the screen content on the external monitors. I have updated all the drivers using the Lenovo driver app, and even applied the docking driver update. Nothing seems to help. I've searched the forums, but all that I have found is a suggestion to downgrade the video driver, which I dont really want to do. Anybody else have this issue? Any ideas? Thank you!! //EDIT to add that this is Windows 8.1. Important information   

A:W540 - Blank screen after undocking/sleep

Exact same problem here. It looks like the only way to brink the device's lcd back is to boot the machine. Then it will work until the next time it falls a sleep while docked.I'm running Windows 8.1 with latests drivers.

Hi all. This is my first post since upgrading to Windows 7.

I am currently looking a way to enable Aero in my machine. (as note, currently I am missing the Aero Glass, Aero Peek, and Aero Flip.)

My specs:
Axioo NVS M720S Laptop
Genuine Intel Pentium Dual Core T2130 @ 1.86GHz
1024MB DDR2 Memory
SiS671 Mirage3 Graphic Card (on board)
80GB HDD
12" LCD Monitor

I did a clean install of Win7 on the machine. Because my screen is WideScreen, at first the graphics are all large and mushy. But at this point I HAVE AERO!

Then, I installed the driver for the gfx card, which was SIS UniVGA3 v.3.85. After installing and restarting, I get the normal resolution (1280x800) but NO AERO.

I thought this was driver problem, so I downloaded UniVGA5 v5.07, UniVGA5 v5.20 (which is the driver for Windows7, according to the site), and the SiS driver update from Windows Update, all of which didn't enable Aero for me.

I tried the registry hack with no result.

Here is my Windows Experience Index:
Processors: 4.4
RAM: 3.9
Graphics: 2.0
Gaming Graphics: 2.5
Primary Harddisk: 4.4

with Overall score: 2.0

I am completely stumped on this. I just don't get why the heck I get Aero WITHOUT driver, but no Aero with drivers.

Hi......

according to your WEI scores, i dont think you can successfully run Aero..

i think whats happening is when your resolution is lower (''the graphics are all large and mushy'') probably 80... Read more

After killing the process of Aero (wich had a memory leak, it was reaching 1 GB by itself and using all of one core).
I restarted the Aero process only to be greeted with something like "your performance analisis was reset" (all my windows7 performance scores were reset)
also , aero glass dissapeared from the Personalize.
I tried the technique of turning off the aero service (desktop window manager session manager ) and turned it on again, and then re-ran the performance (getting a 5.4 due of lousy old hdd, the rest are between 6.5 and 7.5 ).
but after a few restarts, the AERO glass option is still missing, how do I recover it?


my specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Kentsfield @ 3 Ghz ( Q6600 )
GA-X48-DS4 ( Gigabyte )
4 x 2 GB ram DDR 800 ( 8gb in 4 modules )
2x Western Digital ( 160 + 500Gb )
1x Seagate ( 250Gb )
Sound Blaster Audgigy 2 zs
Sapphire HD 3870 512Mb
Viewsonic G90F + AcerAL2216W

Hello

We have a batch of these laptops and several of them keep black screening after undocking, the laptops then may take ten minutes to come back or may even require a reboot,  I have tried the following but to no avail.
updated the bios to E7x70_1.15.4  (07/06/2017)
updated the Graphics driver to Intel-USB-eXtensible-Host-Controller-Driver_4H5XG_WIN_5.0.3.42_A02 (10/07/2017)
Can someone please advise on the next possible action to be taken?
Thanks

Okay, this a fairly new one as I cannot find a single documented instance of this on the entire internet.....

Hardware - T60 thinkpad
OS - WinXP
512MB RAM
Accessories - Docking station

I've deployed about a hundred of these things and this is the first time I've seen this message.....(not verbatim)

"The undocking sequence cannot continue because the print spool service needs to be stopped."

???????

Fair enough, but I can't tell my user to keep going into the computer management services to turn the service on and off. My boss would kill me.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? My final resort would be to re-image the thing (as also suggested by IBM themselves). The problem is that would be a major hassle as this guy is an attorney and always on the run.

Any and all suggestions will be entertained....even the ones involving alchemy.

I use Yoga 370 Model 20JH002KMZ with Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station. Connected with USB-C Cable (Original).I use external Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard (Lenovo KT-1255) and Logitech MX Master Mouser Bluetooth.All Items are brandnew.If I disconnect USB-C Dock-Cable, alle Bluetooth Devices (Keyboard and Mouse) are disconnecting and don't work.Windows 10 shows both Devices as "Connected" and the Devices themselves are "blinking" (searching Notebook).I tried this:- Windows Bluetooth Device-Manager, disabled "windows can set device to energy save"- Drivers are all up-to-date- Drivers re-install- Thunderbolt Firmware Update (up-to-date)This all brings no solution. All Devices disconnecting if I disconnect the USB-C Docking.Only solution I found is:- FN-F10 multiple turning Bluetooth off and on in Windows.- It needs often 3-4 turning off-on's until it works again. What can I do?

Dell Lattitude D610 works fine when its on the docking station but when you undock the screen is black when Windows loads. You can see that the screen is still active but its like it is still trying to work with the monitor that is hooked to the docking station. Plugging it back into the docking station and everything works fine. If you hit undock button from the start menu and you undock the computer will work, until the next reboot and then it does the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,
We have recently purchased (last month) a Latitude E5570 with docking station. We experience system hangs and freezes several seconds, sometimes up to a minute after hot undocking the laptop.  The mouse and keyboard become unresponsive.

It usually emits a beep code before freezing up.  4 beeps then a pause and then 1 beep. Any information regarding this?
Anyone have insights into this?
Thanks!

Here is the issue, when my computer goes to sleep after it's on for a while when I move the mouse to get the screen back up it shows the backround no icons or anything to click.
Same if I turn it off and turn it back on. I have to turn it off and on many times then go to safe mode and shut down then turn it on again for it to work. Just now I had to turn it on/off 4 times for it to show the icons and task bar. Usually it is left blank with nothing to click having no choice but to turn it off.
Norton says no viruses.
My computer is HP with windows 7. I bought it in 2011.
This problem has been happening for a long time. Please help.

Hello squirrels and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think I'd start out by trying to do a startup repair. It's been suggested that the startup repair be done 3 times (regardless of what the notifications say) and the computer rebooted after each repair.

If this doesn't fix the problem one of the Forum experts has prepared these troubleshooting guides with some additional suggestions.
