Docking Station for Dell Precision 7510

Q: Docking Station for Dell Precision 7510

I joined Dell Communities very recently after buying myself the Dell Precision 7510 laptop. It's a great product so far, but I want better. I want more ports. A docking station to go with it is the obvious solution.
What is the best docking station compatible with the Dell Precision 7510 laptop??? My specific needs/setup:
- 2 external screens (D-sub / HDMI connection, or for £50 more I can get display-port), possibly more screens in the future
- high-speed internet cable
- headphones/microphone
- USB sockets for mouse, keyboard, printer, scanner, external hard drives, etc.
I presume that the Advance E-port Replicator is the best/most suitable. I just want to be sure of this, because my laptop model (Precision 7510) is still very new, and not all information everywhere has been updated about compatibility. I don't want to make an expensive mistake. I'll be travelling and won't have the opportunity to "return" the products I buy.

Preferred Solution: Docking Station for Dell Precision 7510

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 for Dell Precision 7510

Yes. I contacted Dell sales... and they told me that the Dell E-Port Plus II, is compatible with my Precision 7510. After written confirmation I went ahead and bought it from a UK supplier on Amazon for £100... but it came in dodgy packaging and wasn't quite working, and the adapter was the size of a brick (literaly). I returned that back to Amazon... and tried my luck with Amazon Germany. You can get the original product from them for about 140 euros, and it works perfectly. The link to the product:
(that's actually UK now that I check it... that's the one I bought and it's good)
Basically Dell hasn't updated it's information about compatability yet. The docking station is listed in the check-out for the Precision 7510, but doesn't specifically say it is compatible with that model. I've had other similar problems elsewhere too, like I want to instal LoJack on my laptop, but can't find any information on whether my laptop model supports something called "persistence technology" in the BIOS (which makes it impossible to uninstall LoJack even if you change hard drives).

Hello so my laptop (Precision 1350 Workstation) with windows 7 which i bought in September 2016 stopped charging after I used it with my docking station . It worked for a week or two prior to this and then I started getting a notification every time I put the laptop on the docking station that said "ac power adapter not recognized , use adapter of 65 watts or above" but the adapter was 130 watts. Even when the laptop was taken off the docking station and the ac adapter was just plugged into the wall it still won't charge at all. I made sure the bios was updated 1.11.4 and even checked for driver to update and ran the online diagnostics there was no problems but it still won't charge. A tech came out last Wednesday and replaced the motherboard and this fixed the problem for about a day but then when I put it back on the docking station the same problem occurred and it still won't charge. I even tried it on a different docking station but the same make and model as mine and the problem persists. Does anyone know what is wrong? The phone tecnicians and the technicians don't seem to know what to do

So I am to receive a precision 5510 in the next couple days. I've already bought monitors and a wd15 dell dock. I am a bit confused as to how to hook up dual monitors given that there aren't two of the same port on the WD15 like there was on the E-dock I am currently using for my precision m4700.

At any rate my monitors have HDMI (2), and VGA (1) inputs. The WD 15 has one HDMI, One mini display port, and one VGA.

To run dual monitors I  am assuming I need to run one from the dock's HDMI port to one monitor's HDMI and one either from the dock's Mini display port (with an adapter to HDMI) tot he HDMI port on the other monitor? I supposed I could go VGA to VGA as well, but prefer HDMI.
IS this correct?

I am an Art Director and my work just purchased me a new Dell Precision 7510 with the specs below:
- 4K screen
- 32 GB DDR4 RAM
- Xeon E3-1505M
- Nvidia Quadro M2000M
- 512 SSD
My concern is that it seems like the system isn't running smooth. To me it seems like the system is having a hard time running the 4K screen? I'm experiencing a bunch of Windows UI lag and the system just seems glitchy at times. These problems are especially apparent within the Adobe Creative Suite. Are these known problems? Should I RMA?
Thank you!

I updated my working station coming from another laptop and had 2 monitors connected (in hdmi and usb->vga adapter). Autodesk 3d applications Revit, 3dsmax all worked fine in all monitors, the usb dongle was using laptop's CPU/GPU to show image.
With new laptop I got D3100 docking station (as usb->vga adapter has some flickering on 5510) to connect my monitors. But mentioned applications do not work at all on that, anything considering 3d runs awfully slow. Using the usb->vga dongle it works well beside flickering.
Is it how it supposed to be with D3100? Can it be forced to use laptop's GPU for showing image (like the cheap usb->vga/hdmi adapters)? This docking station doesn't make any sense now.

I have the same problem.  Running a Precision m6500 with docking station and two Monitors. One connected with the display port and the other digital cable.  
Randomly the monitors will go blank but the computer remains on.

A:Precision m6500, docking station, monitors go blank

Hi BRAD954,
What is the docking station model? What digital cable are you using? And the monitor models? What is the OS installed on the system?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1Mzks6r and reinstall the chipset drivers from the same site.
Download and reinstall the display link drivers for your OS - http://bit.ly/1T8FdoX
If the issue is not resolved, then provide us the event log in your response, for us to review.
If there is a specific docking station, we can provide few other drivers for them.

I have a Dell Precision 7510 (Intel HD Graphics 530 & NVIDIA Quadro M2000M). I want to drive 3 external displays (Dell U2715H) off of this machine. What are my options? I have the E-Series Port Replicator, is it doable with that?

A:Precision 7510 with 3x Dell U2715H displays

Yes, it will be doable. You might have to mix and match using both the dock and system (depending on the exact dock series), but it looks like if you use ports on the system you can technically get this setup as long as the switchable graphics are enabled (and it should be). Here is also a link discussing this. I got the info above from internal sources, but you also might see this on the sales/support site. Best regards,Brad

Hi everyone,
I always get trouble when installing the win7 on my precision.
Currently it has an Ubuntu preinstalled system on it, but I want to install my windows 7 on my laptop.
I have read tons of threads about the problems I met and it turns out that it is the USB 3.0 port get me into the trouble.
There are also some posts addressing this problem but they all rely on windows system.
To be simplified, my precision 7510 only has USB 3.0 ports on it and its OS is preinstalled Ubuntu and I want to install windows 7 through USB port(They are all 3.0 ports).
If someone can help me I will be really appreciated.

I faced bugs in 1.14.4 BIOS firmware for Precision 7510.
1. Switchable graphics enabled.
Laptop always behave same way. It boot normally, but there is no image on 4K laptop's display (black screen, no backlight) while firmware booting. HDMI functions only if the laptop cover is closed.
Laptop's 4k display switches on after linux kernel started loading. So it works normally with 4k resolution in Linux OS. It always work in linux.

2. Switchable graphics disabled.
Laptop's display functions occasionally since the start of the BIOS firmware loading. So sometimes i can go to BIOS settings / operate boot sequence and so on. If screen does not functions immediately after the laptop turned on, then there is no image in Linux and there is no image via hdmi (coolers are operate, keyboard is highlighted).
If screen operates it operates normally in 4k resolution in Linux.If screen operates it usally does not funtions after reboot.
I guess that this behavior is caused by incorrect handling of second mode from panel's EDID by BIOS firmware.

I still have an old PR03X docking Station, will this work with the Precision 7520?
What about the new Thunderbolt Docks - I read somewhere that I would still need  to plug in an additional power supply for the Precision models since they use so much power (180W) even when they are connected to the Dock??
If that is true, can't I simply buy some generic USB-C Docking Station, i.e. what does the Precision Laptop do in regards to power supply from USB when I have already the regular power supply plugged in? Hopefully nothing in regard to charging from USB-C? Or how does that work?

Hey everyone,

I have a Precision M6800 Mobile Workstation with a PRO3X K07A E-Port Docking Station (https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Latitude-PR03X-Docking-Station/dp/B002LK2F2I/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1503170114&sr=1-1&keywords=k07a).
From what I see, this is compatible with my laptop (http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/sln286158/a-guide-to-docking-stations-and-port-replicators-on-dell-latitude-and-precision-notebooks?lang=en#Add_Info).
I use the docking station with two additional monitors and other devices. If I connect the already powered off laptop, that was previously powered on without the docking station, the eject button does not power on, the connected devices do not work, and the laptop is extremely slow. If I then power off the laptop while connected, disconnect it from the docking station, reconnect it to the docking station, then the eject light illuminates, and it works perfectly.

To recreate this issue:

disconnect the laptop,
power it on,
use it for a while and then power the laptop off,
connect the laptop to the docking station, the ejection light does not illuminate,
power on the laptop while connected,
wait to be able to power it down,

So my company orders laptops from Dell, and as per usual ordered one downgraded from Win 10 to Win7.
 In this case it is a Dell Precision 7510 with an Intel i7 and an SSD Lite On CX2 NVMe 512 GB. The SSD failed pretty quickly and Dell sent someone to replace it. I think he also replaced the Motherboard. Unfortunately trying to boot our Win
7 Pro image failed because this machine has only USB 3, and the standard Win 7 image has no drivers for USB 3. So the guy left before we got to installing Windows, which I now regret. I added USB 3 drivers to the image and got as far into the install as selecting
a drive but no drive is found ?and it invites me to load a driver for mass storage.
But I cannot find a driver for any Lite On SSD. I?ve never seen an SSD that needed one to be added, actually so not sure if this is the right way to tackle this. I have seen suggestions
of using another make of driver and I downloaded a load of different ones including Intel on the theory that?s the chipset. In BIOS I get option for AHCI and RAID On and I tried both with same result.
 It recognizes different drivers if I check ?Hide drivers that are not compatible?, depending on RAID or AHCI. But any I can see and load still give no drive visible. DISKPART also fails to find the disk so none of the solutions which involve
DISKPART are useful right now.
If it?s relevant when I go to boot options I get: Boot mode ? Legacy, Secure boot: Off.

So I got the TB16 to use with my Windows 10 Precision 7510. I've had issues with the USB devices dropping out randomly but I seem to have got that under control (for now). I'm having another issue of sorts. Updated the BIOS then went into the BIOS changed restart/shutdown to "thorough" and checked "thunderbolt adapter boot support" and "thunderbolt adapter pre boot modules" as I wanted to boot from a USB DVD drive that was connected to the TB16. But when I tried to boot the laptop got stuck on the Dell logo and wouldn't go into POST. I tried diagnostic boot and got the same result. Couldn't get far enough to press F2 or F12. When I disconnected the TB16 and powered on the laptop it booted up fine. I could then connect the TB16 and it would work fine. But if I tried to restart with the TB16 connected I had the same issue. I eventually unchecked "thunderbolt adapter boot support" and "thunderbolt adapter pre boot modules" just so I could restart without having to disconnect the TB16 (I don't know which of the two options is causing the booting issue though). I can get by without booting from the TB16 but I got it partly for that reason so would to get it working if I can. Any ideas?

So I got the TB16 to use with my Windows 10 Precision 7510. I've had issues with the USB devices dropping out randomly but I seem to have got that under control (for now).
It might be if the devices are intermittent, they would exhibit problems during a Pre Boot Scan.
I wanted to boot from a USB DVD drive that was connected to the TB16. But when I tried to boot the laptop got stuck on the Dell logo and wouldn't go into POST.
You are wanting to boot a UEFI capable DVD, such as the Win 10 Install media, connected to the TB16?  If that is the case, I can test to see if I can do it.  I am wondering if the Thunderbolt is connected to the PCIe bus if any device there will be checked for boot compatibility.  
I suppose you can boot from that USB DVD when connected directly to your system?

I recently bought a Dell Precision 7510 off eBay. It does have a warranty, although I don't think that would make a difference in this case, as this isn't exactly warranty related. I just wondered if anyone has ever paid a premium to have Dell upgrade a screen or otherwise. I can get the screen itself off eBay for a decent price, but I'm uncertain if they are the same connector type.

A:Can I send in my Dell Precision 7510 for a 4k screen upgrade?

No - Dell does not support screen upgrades after purchase.  If you wish to do this, you're on your own.  Note however that replacing the screen will void the system warranty (assuming the seller transferred the warranty/registration to you - otherwise, there is no warranty).

I have been a long time fan of Dells hardware for servers, desktops, midrange laptops, and my own favorites, the Precision line laptops since the late 90s. I am a CTO-like figure that consults for several companies simultaneously at any given time considering my wide range of technical backgrounds is sort of hard to find all in one experienced person willing to travel to your far flung locale.
That being said, I'd like to make a few suggestions because I don't plan on buying the Precision line for our developers or myself in the future as a result of one particular bone-headed change that are making life very difficult me and my teams.

- Offer an optional keyboard for the Precision-line units (CRITICAL)
The original earlier keyboards (M4800 and earlier) had easy access to full sized Directional Arrows, Pause/Break, Scroll Lock, Home, End, Insert, Delete keys. Most modern consumers ( ie. grandma) have no use for these keys, but professional computer systems engineers that work on all sorts of weird *** every day do, and guess which one buys expensive Precision line laptops? The keyboard unit pops out. Simply offer an option and these units will be our next purchase.
In a given year we estimated that our average developer uses that above combination of keys 3000~4000 times a month in order to avoid using the mouse and/or multiple key press actions, until now that is where it is no longer an option.

I have recently purchased a 5510 and a D3100 docking station. Used primarily for solidworks and rhino. My issue is that besides 4k and older applications being terrible bedmates is that the docking station stops the quadro so everything is running software open gl. I understand the new thunderbolt dock DB16 has some additional graphics capabilities but they are by no means a quadro solution, nor it is recognized by solidworks. 
This is hugely problematic. Is there a method to remedy this? Attempting to access the quadro settings while plugged into the docking station results in windows stating that the hardware is not available.

Is there a way to fix washed out colors on a Dell Precision 7510?  I am guessing this is a pretty expensive unit and the colors look washed out and difficult to read because the contrast is so poor. 
Also text is tiny on this and scaling messes up everything else on the screen.  Some things are too small and others too big.  Its huge size differences. 
I have tried all the settings to help make the text better and colors more clear but then the dark is too dark and the light is too light.  There is no middle ground here. 
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A:Dell Precision 7510 Colors Washed Out and small text

If that system has the Intel Display Power Saving Technology setting, that is very likely responsible for your washed out colors.  If the setting is available, it will be under Intel Graphics Settings > Power > On Battery, or thereabouts.  What operating system and display resolution is your Precision 7510 running?  Also note that in many cases, scaling changes require you to log off and back on in order to be applied properly.  Newer releases of Windows 10 and third-party applications have been getting better about redrawing themselves immediately so that this isn't required, but that's not universally true yet, so if you haven't tried that yet, see if you like the appearance of text and graphic elements after a logoff/logon cycle.

I have been having issues with updating Bios and drivers with my 7510 since January.
It has Xeon E3 1535 cpu; 64GB 2100Mhz DDR4 ECC; Quadro m2000m and Samsung 960 PRO NVME M.2 SSD
It started after a BIOS update from Windows Update failed. I had added 4x 2400MHz ECC DDR4 to the machine and the new BIOS supported only 2100MHz So it rolled back by itself. After that I bought two 2100MHz ECC DDR4 sticks and installed those, as I knew that RAM works in pairs and always takes the speed of the lowest stick. So I tried to update the BIOS manually after that. I wasn't able to. and many things broke after that also. The computer does not shut down anymore. I have to restart it and press power when I see the POST screen. It sometimes loses USB and / or mousepad buttons (the pad and tapping on pad works fine)
I got this from Dell Outlet as Dell Refurbished in january 2017.

a) Downloaded drivers via service tag / product detection from support.dell.com. The Bios installation file always tells me that:

Hello All,
I work in a school district and we have a number of Dell Latitude 3350 laptops along with a Dell D1000 USB3.0 Dual-Video Docking Station. One of the docking stations has recently started having a strange issue with the USB ports seem to stop working. The video and LAN ports seem perfectly fine and continue to work. But the teacher will lose connectivity to their mouse, keyboard, and document camera.
I can disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to the laptop, but not even 15 minutes later the same issue comes back. I've reinstalled the drivers, and even replaced the entire unit (and it's USB cable) with a brand new one out of the box and the same issue still comes up.
Could this still be a software/driver issue? Or am I potentially looking at a bad USB port on the laptop?
Many thanks for any and all help. Have a great day!

A:Dell D1000 Docking Station

A bad USB port on the laptop seems unlikely if your video and LAN traffic are working correctly given that they're also flowing through your laptop's USB port.  You can certainly test another USB port on that laptop (assuming that system has more than one), although even that wouldn't be a conclusive test since all USB ports on a system are often wired to the same controller chip.  Do you have another laptop you can test with?  Otherwise, the best way to rule out drivers would probably be to get the latest version available directly from DisplayLink, which is the company that makes the chips that enable those docks to carry video and other traffic on a USB cable.  Head over to DisplayLink.com for those.  Good luck!

Our laptop assets consist of Dell E series laptops. Most laptops (approx 50) have the standard dell docking port station.

As Dell change the design with each revision including the dock port style and position, does anyone know if Dell are introducing a new series anytime soon or in the near future? I don't want to have to spend ?200 on a dock only for the next laptop not to fit.
Of course there are the USB style docks which will work on any laptop, obvious downsides is to keep having to plug the AC charger in.
How do you guys manage this in your organisations, 50 x ?200 is a lot of money to spend every 5 years or so adding in the price of new laptops, screens and stands.

After installing the appropriate driver from the Dell  Website, I connected my Inspiron 17-778 to two external monitors. Soon thereafter I began to receive an error message and a restart. The message indicated:
KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED, which I looked up and found that it signaled a problem "when a driver tries to close static streams for USB 3.0 devices.
Is there a fix for this issue?

It looks like all the new Dell Latitude laptops are not compatible with the E-Port Replicator Docking Stations. Is there any solution to be able to still use them as a docking station on the new Latitudes such as using a usb port instead of the pins?

Hi, What is the model of your Dell docking station ? Many HP docking stations won't be compatible with HP Spectre x360 machines, I don't think your Dell would BUT I need to know what exactly is your Dell docking station. Regards.

My wife has an HP docking station that allows all the cables and such to be plugged in to that, instead of into the various outlets around the laptop. Sure is nice to be able to plug everything into one central location. However, her laptop was stolen. I have a Dell Precision M60 laptop and am wondering if it will work.

Anyone out there absolutely certain it would work? Obviously, unless I'm absolutely certain it won't fry my system I'm not going to try it.


A:Will HP docking station work with Dell laptop?

Unless for some amazing coincidence the connections on the back of the two computers are identical, a docking station for one manufacturer's computer won't work on another.

I purchased a Dell D3100 for my non-Dell laptop in 2016. Initially, I was able to connect two 24" LG tv/monitors to my laptop via HDMI. I'm not sure if there's an issue with a Windows 10 update (I have the latest DisplayLink drivers installed), but my laptop will now recognise the external hard drives attached to the dock via USB, but will not recognise the monitors attached or the dock itself.
Is there something I'm missing?
Any help would be immensely appreciated!

Hello All, I have a Thinkpad T480 and I'm trying to use  a Dell TB16 dock station I have available. Has anyone tried that combo before?  So far it recognizes most of the components, but only one out of the three screens comes up. It doesn't detect the other two.Also, in the device manager I see the "ucm-ucsi acpi" device showing "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". I try unininstalling, updating, rollback, etc. but nothing.

I just ordered a Dell Inspiron 15R and want to use it to replace my desktop. There are so many docking stations and each review points out reasons to get that one. What is the best one with enough ports to support a monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse, subwoofer with speakers, a printer with at least one open for camera, external hard drive, etc.?

I am running XP on my Dell Laptop. When it is in the docking station, the CPU runs at 100%. I am running Norton and Spybot. I am unable to determine what is causing the issue. If I take the laptop out of the docking station or do not have the power cord plugged in, the laptop runs great. Please help me.

Can you precisely identify the process hogging that CPU?

You could download and run the free Process Explorer. You'll be able to precisely identify the culprit. By right-clicking on the process showing high CPU and selecting Properties… > Threads tab, you'll be able to pinpoint the thread that's hogging CPU within the process. You'll need to slide the bar left of CSwitch Delta in order to see the CPU values.

Process Explorer doesn't require any installation. Simply run the executable file once downloaded. Then, configure the Process Explorer window to your liking. You can even replace the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) by clicking on Options > Replace Task Manager. You'll get a lot more features and details than with the Task Manager.

To determine which Process might be hogging CPU, click on the little graphs located at the top right of the window. A new window with four graphs will open, the first one being CPU. Click inside the window and press the spacebar to freeze the display. This will make it easier to hover your mouse cursor over the CPU peaks in order to read which process(es) is/are creating them.
