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.)

Hi, Yes it is. It uses USB 3.0 connection therefore it is compatible with nearly all laptops with USB 3.0 ports and also backward compatible nearly all laptops with USB 2.0 ports. Regards.

Hi, Why does hp usb 3.0 3005pr port replicator work with HP EliteBook 820 G3 Core i7 8GB 256GB SSD 12.5"`??? I plugged in the replicator to the laptop, started the laptop but get a black window saying Missing operating system.I unplugged the replicator, re-started the laptop, no black window, I log in as always and everything is fine.I plug in the replicator again, but the system doesn't recognize it.When viewing the list of devices and what's connected to the laptop, it says "Unknown device connected" but updating the driver doesn't help. I download the driver from hp.com but each time I restart the laptop I get the black window and "Missing operating system". When I finally manage to update the driver of the replicator, I get the following message:"Incompatible disply driver. The installed version of DisplyLink USB Graphics software does not support this graphics card, which uses a newer version of the Windows Display Driver Model. Please visit http://www.displaylink.com/software to check if a newer version is available." When I visit the site and download the newer version, I get blue screen. So, it seems to be impossible to install the replicator to this laptop. I tested the replicator to another HP laptop from 2011 and it worked perfect! What can I do to make it work???

Hi all, I'm having trouble to get Ethernet connection with HP 3005pr USB 3.0 Port Replicator. Basically it does not recognize the LAN cable when inserted and I don't get Internet connection. The LEDs on the bottom of the port do not light up. In Control Panel of Windows, it can see the adaptor ("HP USB Giga Ethernet") and it says "Network cable unplugged". Troubleshoot I did so far: Upgraded the driver to the latest version from the HP websiteRebooted my laptopWhen the same cable was connected directly to the laptop, I got Internet connection.Used a different cable.Checked the port. No sign of visible damage.Tested other ports. USB 2.0 and HDMI ports are working fine.Tried the minimal connection (just LAN and power cables). LEDs underneath the LAN port didn't light up.  Get a replacement from HP. The same issue. To me, it's a hardware issue, not a software issue. That's why I got a replacement, but I'm still having the same issue. It's difficult to imaging that two different units are broken in the same place. Things I want to know:What happens if you just connect power and LAN? Do the LEDs light up, just like when you hook up a LAN cable to a PC that is turned off? If so, then I need to get yet another replacement from HP. Mines don't light up no matter what I do.  I appreciate any comment/suggestion on this. Thanks, Ken

I'm having an issue with an HP 3005pr USB 3 Port Replicator. My problem is that I can only get the attached laptop (HP ZBook 17 G3) to boot into Windows (7 x64 Enterprise) without requesting the Bitlocker key when the 3005pr is either attached or when it is not attached but not both. When I first attached the HP 3005pr I had an issue with the laptop attempting to boot from the port replicator but I fixed that by changing the boot order in the BIOS. After that I got the Bitlocker key request screen, I entered the key and followed the suggested instructions to allow the port replicator to work with bitlocker (disable and then re-enable bitlocker from Windows). This worked fine until I tried to use the laptop without the port replicator, I then got the Bitlocker key request screen again. What do I need to do to set up the laptop to be able to boot Windows with the port replicator attached and not attached without having to enter the Bitlocker key for one of these? At the moment I am trying to remember to attach the port replicator once Windows has started to boot

Has anyone had any issues with the Precision 7510 only outputting through one DisplayPort output on the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicator?Our organization recently started to introduce Precision 7510 units to our employees, and we're finding that they will only output to one single monitor connected via DisplayPort through the E-Port Plus Advanced Port Replicators - even though there are two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs on the E-Port Plus APR. If the monitors are connected via DVI, the Precision 7510 is able to output to both of them through the E-Port Plus APR. We have tried Precision M4800, Latitude E7450, and Latitude E7470 units in these E-Port Plus APR's with two monitors connected into the two DisplayPort outputs - and they all work correctly.The Precision 7510 units have the NVIDIA Quadro M1000M video cards, and the E-Port Plus APR's are connected to either a pair of P2417 monitors or a pair of U2414 monitors.

One of my end users has an HP 3005pr Port Replicator for his HP ZBook 17 G3. If he attempts to boot (not restart, wake from sleep, not wake from hibernate, etc.) the laptop with the port replicator plugged in, he gets a Missing Operating System error. The OS is Windows 10 Anniversary update, but I should point out that a missing operating system error kinda means its not a driver/os issue. We have updated his BIOS to 1.12, but the issue still occurs. If we unplug the port replicator, the laptop boots fine.  And if you plug the port replicator in after the laptop boots, the port replicator works.

Dells do not suck. There are a great number of Dells with huge numbers of happy owners. Some of the cheap ones suck. And some with the wrong owners suck.
There are many port replicators, and many are sold on eBay and at Dell support sites.
But I would get my boss to buy a Dell that has a specific port replicator...
Or else I would learn how to burn my files to disk, or a backup external hard drive.
We need to know which Inspiron, age, operating system, memory, hard drive and such.
I would want to back up my data to an external hard drive, then tune up the existing install.

Hello,

I've read that a port replicator or docking station will take care of this problem. If I do that, will it be a work around or will I still have to take this thing apart and repair the broken port? If I still have to fix it, then I don't see any reason to buy a replicator.

Hello All, I wonder if the panel can help with a small problem Im having with my Home Office

My kit is a Toshiba Tecra M11 with Win 7 Enterprise, which I use with an Express Port Replicator and which I have just upgraded from a Seimens Lifebook, also with a docking cradle. The way i like to work is to use the laptop to log on to the central company network over the internet by VPN then use my Home PC to connect to the laptop via RDC - so I can use the widescreen monitor and large keyboard (my work involves very large excel spreadsheets). This worked fine with the Siemens, and mostly works with the Toshiba, but for one small problem.

After I have logged on to the network and connected to the laptop, I like to put the lid down, then put the laptop and its docking cradle out of the way on a shelf. This worked fine with the Siemens, but everytime I try it with the Toshiba it puts the machine into standby as soon as the lid closes and the RDC session on the main PC hangs. The Toshiba is mounted on its docking cradle throughout this process. Both the laptop & docking cradle and the main pc are all connected by a wired link to the same netgear router

How do i stop this happening, ie how do I use the unit on its docking cradle with the lid down ?

Not sure if this is the correct forum. I tried searching but must not have used correct key words as nothing came up.

Dell Dock model PR01X which is as I read, a Port Replicator. Does not work on my Latitude D620 running Vista Home Premium. I've also tried XP Pro SP3 on the same machine and still, nothing on the Dock works except the power plug and one light on the top.

I searched Dell user forums. Found this problem has persisted for over 5 years yet Dell has still not addressed it. Many of those users have had some success by installing the XP copy of usb.inf. Vista would not allow that. So I loaded XP onto another drive, swapped it in. Still nothing worked other than the power plug and that one top light that comes on when the lid is lifted. The network cord would not 'pass thru'. I had to un-dock, plug the network cord in to get on-line and go to the Dell site to download and install drivers to get the wi-fi working.

A chat with Dell Tech about this Dock problem was a total waste of time. They wanted to either sell me support or sell me a different Dock. Done a lot of searches, and reading, something led me to Dell R181862 which is Dell Notebook system Software Utility. This installed Client Configuration Utility allows my to edit the system Bios. I used that to add 'Docking'. After making those changes I found during Setup there is now 'Docking' listed and made those selections. It didn't change a thing. Nothing on the dock work... Read more

Hi, 
Just done a fresh install of Win10 and I'm getting really poor performance from my Precision M6800 when connected to the E-Port II replicator, it can take 4-5 seconds to switch tabs in task manager, all screen re-draws are terribly slow.
When the laptop is running stand alone all is fine. 
I just checked and there are no drivers for the replicator, but does anything updated as far as the graphics to power this dock.  Could be a faulty dock but then it's a bit of a coincidence that it only happened after the OS upgrade. 
My twin Dell U2412 monitors are connected to the dock via DVI. 
Also, anyone know if it's possible to test the docking station?

> What can I do? Measure, measure, measure. Use the Windows "Task Manager" or the "Process Monitor" to view the resources (CPU, RAM, disk-drive, Internet) that your computer is using, to try to identify which application is consuming the most resources. Windows has an option to virus-scan (and also to run Disk Defragmenter) all newly-attached disk-drives -- that can take a while.

I have a sony viao which restarts all of a sudden when I plug it into my port replicator. Otherwise it works fine.

I checked the log and it gives me "ds1410d service failed to start" error log. It seems like a hardware device is looking to load the driver.

Can I post a minidump from that laptop and somebody willing to help me?

Thanks
Muhy

I want to use my Dell Inspiron 1501 as a desk top.
I want to connect my desktop monitor, and keyboard to my laptop.
If I do can I still use the USB ports on my laptop to connect my mouse, external disc drives,
printer etc or should I connect all devices to a docking station or port replicator?
Should I use a docking station or port replicator?
Can you recommend a good reasoable docking station or port replicator?
 

A:Docking Station VS Port Replicator

I just found out DEll Inspirons do not have a docking station port.
Looks like I will have to use a USB connected port replicator.
Any comments on this option greatly appreciated.

Hello 2 all!

At the moment I'm working with two external 19" TFT screens connected to the Port Replicator II (Tecra S10-160 inside with display closed). One screen is connected to the available DVI port, the second one is connected to the available VGA port on the Port Replicator II.
One screen (DVI) is used as primary desktop, the second one (VGA) is used as enhanced desktop (so both show a different content).

My problem is the poor quality of the VGA signal and the problem, that my two new screens only support DVI.

Is there a possibility to connect two DVI screens to the DVI-D of the Port Replicator II? I already checked several DVI-Y-cabels but I'm still looking for a solution to connect two screens via DVI with the function to get two shared screens and not the same content on both screens.

Hope you got my point and have some information or product ideas for me.
Thanks in advance.

Hello

Have you already tested a VGA to DVI adapter? So you can use the VGA connector on port replicator and the DVI port of your monitor.

I mean such a cable like THIS ONE

Using such an adapter you can still use the function to get two shared screens and not the same content on both screens. :)
