docking station issue

Q: docking station issue

just purchased an elitebook and all seemed fine until I put it in an HP ultraslim dock 2013 station and I cannot get the screens to come up. The computer starts initially showing the Windows startup on the screen and then screens fade to black. I have tried pressing thef fn key along with the F4 key that doesn't seem to help. I have used the same docking station with another computer and it works fine which leads me to believe the docking station is not the issue. Would appreciate anybody's insight if they experienced a similar problem and would more than welcome any suggestion relative to a solution. Thanks

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.)

A: docking station issue

Did you verify that docking station works for that laptop? Just because it fits doesn't mean it will work.

A:USB issue with docking station

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.

Hi All,  I have an EliteBook 840 G1 with a docking station. When I have the laptop connected to the docking station the network is fine.  If I leave the laptop connected to the docking station, turn the laptop off and then undock it, and then turn it back on, once the laptop has logged on, it runs incredibly slow, and the CPU has a 100% usage. If I then reconnect it to the docking station or connect a wired network connection to it, it suddenly starts working normally again and CPU usage drops to a normal amount of usage.  So it's a wired network issue. Can I fix this? No I don't seem to be able to.  I can only find A temporary fix, which is to uncheck LAN/WLAN switching. This is not ideal as we need to switch to LAN when docked to access certain shared drives. Things I have tried:  Updating Network driversUpdating Docking station driversUpdating BIOsUninstalling Network drivers and reinstalling them Disabling network card and re-enabling it Updating the Windows 7 image Turning LAN/WLAN switching on and off (restarting in between)Updating Various other drivers that were long shots at fixing the issue.  Any ideas? other than turning off LAN/WLAN switching?

Hello,
I have a Panasonic CF-50 laptop that connects to my network wirelessly. When it is stand alone I have no problems, however when it is in the docking station it fails to communicate with any network device after a while. I have done an ipconfig and everything looks right, the wireless network is shown as connected with very good signal level. After a reboot it works again for a time.
It is running XP pro with SP2.
Any suggestions please?
Sid.

Strangest thing happened suddenly.  I have a co-worker with two matching HP 24" monitors connected to her HP 2012 90W Docking station.  Once with VGA, the other with DVI.  Both monitors were working fine, but suddenly only ONE will display an image.  The other monitor keeps flashing that it is going into power saving mode.  MON1 = VGAMON2 = DVI If I unhook the VGA cable from MON1, MON2 displays fine. If I unhook the DVI cable from MON2, MON1 displays fine. If I swap the cables around (make MON1 connect via DVI, MON2 via VGA) the issue is the exact same.  I have 3 of these docking stations laying around and I've tried all of them and they all do the same thing.  I've tried differnet VGA and DVI cables and the issue persists.  I installed HP Support Advisor to download and install drivers and still nothing.  How here's the real kicker: If I remove one of the monitors and connect an old 19" HP monitor up, BOTH WORK FINE!!!!!!!!!!!  All of the troubleshooting I've done only confuses me more... I'm completely stumped.  Anyone give me any instruction or advise?

Hi, We have the Elitebook 1040 G3 and UltraSlim Dock using Windows 7. I am using 2 HP Compaq LA2205wg monitors that one monitor is connected to VGA and the other Monitor is connected to DVI that is connected to a StarTech display port. Display Adapters: Intel(R) HD Graphics 520.The firmware of the Docking station: 2.30 which is most current firmware. After imaging the laptop and we dock the laptop on UltaSlim Docking station you only get the one monitor which is the monitor that is connected by VGA. The DVI/Display port acts like it is not connected to a monitor or anything. When you go to Control Panel > Display > Change Display setting > you see that the laptop is set to mirror what the 1st Monitor has, then on the second monitor if you look at "Multiple displays" you see that it says "Disconnect the display".  When I change it to  "Extend desktop to this display" Then hit Apply and yes, I get all 2 Monitors working which is good, I can restart/shutdown the laptop and I will get 2 monitors. This is not something we want to do every time I dock my laptop. The next problem that relates to the problem above is when we undock the laptop and it falls asleep for 20 minutes or more we come back to the first problem which is when we dock the laptop to turn it on the lid open or close it still only displays one monitor which is the VGA. We have tried numerous number of things and everything that we have tried doesnt seem to be working so i...

Hi folks!I'm using my t430s in several areas, such as my parents house, or even at home, workplace, coffe shops, etc.... Well, at my parents house, i'm using a type 4336 docking station, with an old sharp FHD external tv hooked to the vga output.. And i used to activate it with fn+f7, when it's needed to show anything, when its necessary.... I have updated the windows lately, but after it the settings gone insane, and when i connect the laptop to the 4336 it sends the screen to the external, and need to change it back to laptop lcd by pressing the mentioned keys before. It is pretty frustrating, and i don't find the setting, which i was able to find before the update. It did the same way after the previoius update too.can somebody please help?I'm soo dissapointed in the new windows stuff by now. I used win 7 x64 for a looooong time, but.... the system came with win8 so its free os for me, and deceided to use it instead of 7. It was a mistake i know... Thank you in advance!carrEdit: I just noticed, if i close the lid, the secondary monitor is becoming the primary, and it turns itself on. How did this gone so bad?! :@

I have the new X1 Carbon 6th Gen with the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station (40AJ0135US) and have noticed any time I lock my computer and my screens turn off or my screens just turn off from the computer being idle for the set amount of time that when it comes back up that all my windows have moved to the main laptop screen. I have two monitors plugged in with DisplayPort to the dock and I use the laptop screen as the main screen. Has anyone else noticed this same issue? Any fixes?

I'm experiencing an issue with intermittent shutdowns on my new T580 (20L9) with the Ultra Docking Station (40AJ). The issue appears to derive from the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework driver, as I typically see a corresponding error (DPTF Event ID 256 - Unhandled Exception) in Event Viewer, the details for which I'm including below. I'm running Windows 10 x64 1803 (Build 17134.81). It appears that certain CPU/GPU-intensive tasks will tip the driver to immediately put the system in sleep mode, so not technically a full system shutdown. Most recently, I attempted to restore a browser session in Chrome after an OS restart, opening a number of browser windows w/ multiple tabs each, which triggered the issue. Over the course of my daily use, it will happen anywhere from one to five times, and it's extremely annoying.
 
I have not experienced the issue with the system undocked, however, my computer is docked about 90% of the time I'm using the machine, and I did recently update to Win 10 1803, which could be part of the problem (?) I am using **all** of the latest drivers available on Lenovo's site, including that for the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework, version 8.3.10207.5567 as of the time of this post. I'm also running the latest BIOS, i.e. 1.10. 
 
I'm not sure if there's a BIOS setting available that could help with the issue or some power management setting? I'm including the full Event Viewer details below. Please advise.

A:Random sleeps on T580 w/ Ultra Docking Station - Intel Thermal Framework issue

Did you ever get this resolved?  I have a user with the exact same symptoms, but we haven't done a lot of testing off the dock yet.  We've updated to the latest Intel Thermal Framework drivers from Lenovo (Just came out on 6/8) but that didn't help.  Updated to the latest drivers from Intel, no better.  Tried dock firmware, nothing.  Lenovo came out and replaced the system board - no better.  We push a clean corporate image to ALL machines, include a few hundred Thinkpads we have out there, and this is the only one exhibiting this behavior (Also the only T580 we have out there so far, everything else is T480.)  Lenovo wants their image back on it before we do anything else, which is tough because the user is a few hundred miles away.

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:

I have an external HDMI monitor, the problem is simple.
When the monitor is plugged in the docking station anything using that HDMI screen DOES NOT use the NVIDIA GPU, it uses the on-board Intel chip.
When connecting the monitor directly to the laptop all applications on the external monitor use the NVIDIA GPU (I have this as default in the NVIDIA control panel)

Please advise on how I can get the D3100 to work with the NVIDIA GPU.

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.
