I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello -  My x220 does not lock into  Mini Docking Station Series 3 that I bough recently. The rubber pads on the battery seem to be preventing the laptop from being docked. (Not sure if I am doing something wrong instead.) Also I am trying to set up a multi monitor display ( Dell U2415). Will appreciate some inputs on how I should resolve both the issues or a link if that has been covered before .

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

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:

Hi
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 :()
Appreciate your help.

Hi 1erans,
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?
 
Have you been able to note the exact error message seen on the system pre OS?
 
Thanks,

the Pro2x docking station was working fine with my two monitors.  Undocked the Precision M6800 and took it to CA for a conference.  During that time I connected to a projected to give a presentation.  Upon my return I docked the laptop and now the second monitor is no longer detected.  When I use the second monitor in monitor one port it works, when monitor one is put in port 2 it doesn't work.Yes, the docking station may have gone bad as Dell support insists, I'm out of warranty.  If I need a new station fine, but I'm concerned that a setting got changed in the BIOS or something and so a new station won't help. I've been here once before for the same exact reason.  Only was under warranty so they were able to tell me how to fix it.

Hey guys,

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

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

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

Thanks
 

A:BSoD ONLY when on Docking Station?

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.

Hi guys I've been having myself the T430S for a while now. I'm truly in love with the machine and have been modding it left and right.I use it daily for university and have in total three batteries and a multibay battery. Always on remote, pretty much. THE QUESTION:I'm looking to get myself a compatible docking station so that I don't always have to unplug all the cables when I leave the house the next day. However, I've been googling and googling, without success. Is there no docking station available for this series? I'm not to keen on the external 'dockings' as I don't really need them for multimonitor setup. The main reason of getting a docking would be the charging funcitonality and not having to go through the hassle of unplugging cables every single day. Besides, I have my desktop for multiple monitors. Thanks in advance for your reply Kian Van Landeghem
