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.)

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
Autorandr script is here: github.com/.../

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:

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...

Searched site for info on HD docking station. No threads answered my questions.

Even though I received some wonderful help from some of you recently, I couldn't get rid of a virus on an older computer. I've decided to buy an HD docking station and hopefully transfer some of my needed and wanted files to another HD. This HD is brand new with nothing on it. Will I be able to transfer files to it if it doesn't have an operating system?

I'm definitely not going to do a mass transfer, I'll pick and chose .jpgs, videos and documents. No .exe programs what-so-ever.

Will this way be safe to keep the pesky virus on the old PC? Once I have everything I want off the old PC, I'll give it a complete restore with the original Windows.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you
Tony

A:Need info on HD docking station

Hello Tony

Do you remember the name of the virus and where it was...

What is or was the name of the Anti-virus on the computer that has the virus.

Do you have malwarebytes if not I would download it on the old system and run a full scan as it can pick up and delete virus's that others miss, here is the link and chose the free version..
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
Try and get rid of the virus this way and then transfer the items you want...

Hi

I recently did a reboot of my Vista Home Premium operating system. Prior to the reboot I had what could be described as a docking station at the top of my desktop which would appear when the mouse was dragged over it. It had links to my windows mail/word processor/windows media player etc.

The laptop which I have (Inspiron 1525) was purchased from dell.com.

I'm running Vista 64 bit but if 32 is the same, if you right click your desktop, then do Customize, there should be one for "change desktop icons" where you can select stuff like Documents to be on the desktop or not. See if your dock is in there.

Hello all,
Forgive me if this is in the wrong thread but I have a problem.

MY Advent Monza N2 running a 64-bit version of Windows 8 Pro is connected to a Plugable Technologies DisplayLink certified laptop docking station which in turn is connected via VGA lead to a Logik L22FED12 1080p HDTV.

At the moment my screen resolution is at 1440x900 (the highest available at the moment) and there is a 2-3 inch wide black square around the functioning OS.

Any ideas? I have tried forcing the resolution using PowerBar with no luck.

When she did that, I felt a static discharge from me to the keyboard and back.
