T530 and T470 Docking Station?

Q: T530 and T470 Docking Station?

I have a T530 for work and it came with a Mini Dock Series 3 docking station provided by my company. I just recently purchased a T470 for personal use and clearly the mini dock isn't compatible with the bottom of my T470. Is there such a dock out there that I could easily swap between laptops since I don't have the desk space for two setups nor the time to swap out cables every time I need to swap?

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.)

I have a T530 with a Docking station and a USB connected printer.The printer is a HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M475dw(CE864A) with a connection for USB Sticks Everytime the laptop is talken off the docking station and powered off then placed back on to the dock and powered by one BitLocker locks.  If the printer is disconnected then there is no issue. Has anyone ran into something like with when using bitlocker for encrytion?-I did update the Bios and updated the OS and updated the Lenovo system updates as well.

Hello,I've been trying to get my T530, and Type 4337 to extend desktop display to 2 external monitors, and the laptop screens. I can get any 2 of them to show the desktop but the 3rd is always dark. Using the Windows Display Configuration tool will not allow me to "Apply" any changes made to the monitors configuration; i.e. extending the 3rd monitor. Any suggestions? Regards!

Just started using the T470 and am attempting to setup dual monitors from my home office without a docking station.  Can I use the HDMI port to connect one monitor, and the USB C port with an HDMI converter to the 2nd monitor?  I'm able to connect the HDMI port to one monitor, I'm also able to connect one monitor using the USB C port with HDMI convertor.  However, when connecting the two at the same time, screen continues to flicker and only the monitor connected via HDMI port works.  Won't detect the USB C with HDMI converter.  Monitors are Viewsonic 2270SMH-LED.

Hello.  I am a very happy new T470 owner.  So this bad boy has an internal battery and one in the back.  Should I remove the one in the back when my box is in the docking station (90W Ultra Dock), or is it smart enough not to provide continual charging to the removable battery which would wear it out? TIA

I have ThinkPad T470 laptop with Windows 10 pro x64 installed. Sound plays just fine from the laptop's speakers, and when I plug external speakers into the laptop's 3.5mm audio port they work just fine too.But...when the laptop is docked in my Ultra Dock 90W docking station and the external speakers cable is plugged into the dock's audio port, no sound is heard. If I'm playing music through the laptop's speakers, as soon as I plug a cable into the dock's audio port no sound is heard. I can still use the laptop's audio port to connect external speakers, but that defeats the object of having an audio port on the Ultra Dock. I believe the driver of external speaker plugged into dock is well-installed and well-detected by the device managerI already set it as default audio output and can see the volume symbol up-and-down while testing it.I also had my T450 docked and the audio port from this Ultra Dock worked just as expected!! It seems everything works fine but still no sound can be heard when T470 is docked.Is it a bug when using Dock with T470 docked ??What do I need to do to get the Ultra Dock's audio port working?Anyone can help ?? Thanks a lot in advance!Kind regards,Jimmy

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

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).

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:
