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 suggession

There is no docking station as such. A true docking station is a snap down unit that has ports on it and also powers the laptop. You have to use a "port replicator" which will provide additional ports but will not power the laptop. So when you connect the laptop to it there are 2 things to connect, unlike a true dock where you just snap it on and everything just works. Fortunately you have 3 Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C ports which are the newest thing and provide the fastest interface. Theoretically you can chage the notebook through them, too. Mixed reviews on how that works but here is the dock you would want. http://www.ebay.com/itm/P5Q54AA-ABB-HP-ELITE-65W-THUNDERBOLT-3-DOCK-/122378687112?hash=item1c7e56928...

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

I would think that 3.5" drives would require more power than USB could provide. I don't recall seeing many of those. 2.5" laptop drives should be okay with just USB power.

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.

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:

There is only one way (assuming you don't make the things) to test this.

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.

I am now finding that shutting the lid of the laptop, with either TB16, causes a BSOD error VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (igdkmd64.sys). I have updated all of the drivers (and BIOS) and am currently assuming that the error is linked to the recent installation of the Windows Creators update.
