T480s keyboard doesn't work on the docking station with HDD password

Q: T480s keyboard doesn't work on the docking station with HDD password

Hello, I facing the issues with T480s at the company I working for. All the laptops are encrypted with HDD password in BIOS. When you switching on the laptop on the docking station, the keyboard doesn't work and it is impossible to enter the HDD password. If I trying to take the laptop from the docking station in the switched on state, and put it back to the docking station, it starts to work. I have the latest firmware updates for the laptop and the docking station. How is it possible to fix? Thank you

Any ideas????

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop and OS is Windows XP Pro 2002 (SP2). Sound is great when I don't have the docking station (Kensington Notebook Dock), but there is no sound at all when I do use it.

I've tried looking through my computer/properties/hardware/device manager, but a) I'm not sure in I'm in the right place and b) if I am, I can't see the wood for the trees....
 

A:Solved: Sound on laptop doesn't work when I use docking station...

Most of these all in one dockingstations (ones not made for a specific brand and that connect to anything) kind of take over the Laptops functions what you need to do is disable the kensington audio drivers as when you attach the docking station these drivers try and replace the notebooks ones.

What you want to do is look at the device manager with the dockingstation unpluged then plug it in and see what audio devices it loads up and disable them.

Either that or write/look ionline with kensington and get a list of them.

I have a ThinkPad T480s and a Basic Docking Station (40AG0090US). Connecting a monitor via the Displayport on the docking station does not work. The monitor is simply not detected.Connecting via the HDMI port on the laptop does work, and so does connecting via the VGA port on the docking station.I've also tested to make sure the cable is working with a different system. Please advice. Thank you.

A:DisplayPort doesn't work on Basic Docking Station 40AG

Are you going direct DP to DP or via a DP -> HDMI adapter.

I have a T480s connected to a Think Pad Pro Docking Station with 2 4K monitors attached via Display Port.  One monitor I can set to 3840 x 2160 resolution but the 2nd monitor will not go higher than 1920 x 1080. I have checked the specs on the Docking Station (40AH) and it says that it can support two monitors at 4096 x 2160 at 60Hz so I do not think it is an issue with the docking station. Anyone have any ideas how I can fix this so that both monitors are showing 3840 x 2160?  Can the T480s support two 4K monitors even with the docking station? Thank you for your help.

I have a T480s with a docking station, and everything works fine on a normal monitor. However, it does not detect the Apple iSight monitor at all through the docking station. The iSight has two plugs:  Thunderbolt 2 for display and USB-A for audio. I am using a USB-C (M) to Mini DisplayPort (F) adapter for the display since the T480s does not have a Thunderbolt 2 port. The audio was successfully connected, but the display is not detected at all. When I plug it into the laptop directly, everything works fine,  but it is an issue because the dock blocks the ports. Could it be that the adapter needs to be USB-C to Thunderbolt 2? But why would it work directly on the laptop? Problem with the dock port? Any solutions?

For proper battery charging and docking station operation, connect the AC Adapter for the docking station" So that is not possible since the docking station requires power to operate.  I do not know where to go with that - it looks like firmware error in docking station of some driver error in laptop. I've verified BIOS in the laptop and its newest possible.

But when you trying to un-dock and dock again - external screen says "no input" and goes down. In other words - external screen is not working. The same issue is described over there:https://support.lenovo.com/lt/en/solutions/ht081248 Mine docking station type is 40AH, but anyway, I tried to run ThinkPad Ultra Dock 135W firmware update - but update says "the firmware you are trying to install is older than the version already installed. My Docking Station: Power adapter is 135W. All drivers are up to date. Btw - I have many of those docking stations with machines.

Hello all!

I just got a Rosewill HDD docking station R309 to pair with my backup drive, a Western Digital 1T. The drive was working in my desktop as a backup, I gave the PC to my son, and took out the back up, It's got all my music and photos on it plus other stuff.

Windows 10 doesn't recognize the drive. I have everything correctly connected, all lights light up, so all connections are tight. I checked for it in Device Manager, and it shows up there under my laptop's hard drive as working properly. So I went to Disk Management and it shows up as Disk 1 and again as working properly.

A box popped up to say I have to initialize the disk before Windows will deal with it. Then it recommends a GPT.
If I go ahead with this, will it wipe out all my stuff from my hard drive? It'll kill me if I have to lose all my pictures. The rest of the stuff I have backed up on DVDs or CDs. My pictures are only partially backed up as at the time, I was having trouble with my DVD burner. A network transfer didn't work between a PC running Win 8.1 and my laptop running 10. So I gave up for the time being so my son could use the PC.

I'm trying to do this on my own without bothering my boys. If anyone can guide me through this, I'd be so happy and grateful and most truly appreciative! Please bear in mind I am 65 years old, and while certainly not PC illiterate, things like this I am new at. So some patient empathy is always doubly appreciated!

A:Windows 10 doesn't recognize my new HDD docking station

Make sure you are using the Rosewill power adapter when using the Dock, and plug it directly into the wall socket and not a power strip or surge protector as this diminishes the power.
Be sure you are plugging the USB cable into the Back USB port (desktop) not the front or thru a Hub as these ports are weaker. If Disk Management still wants to initialize, then you can try and recover your files by using the Free TestDisk program. I have had the best luck with GetDataBack. you will need another drive of the same size or larger to restore your files to. BTW age is just a thing, I'm 63.

Hi Jwagner,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I am sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with USB port on your ThinkPad Ultra Dock.
 
To resolve the issue on your Windows 7 machine, please connect the system to the Docking station and download ThinkVantage system update utility and install it. After installation restart the system and run the application so that it will check for the updated drivers and application for your system and will install it, after completion of all the update restart the system once again and check if the issue still persists.
 
Below is the link to enter the downloads page and download latest application accordingly, please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the MTM no. select the exact model.

Hmm… if this issue didn’t appear from first day of purchase, then the battery docking issue might be related to battery fault.
In such case you will need to contact the service to fix it.

But just one question: is your BIOS up to date?
Check the update within the service station and in case of available new BIOS version; try to update the BIOS to the latest state.

If you did hear the test chimes then the headset is working fine.   Clicking cancel should return you back to sound properties. Make sure that headphone is still selected and then click the “Set Default” button. This should but the green “default” checkmark icon on the headphones now. Test to see if the headset is working correctly now.
If you continue to have problems please reply back with the model of docking station and headphones that are being used. Please also include if the headphones have an analog connection (headphone jack) or are USB. Please also include the version of Windows on the system.

I'm trying to connect the Mobile Pixels Duex monitor to my T480s. It connects via USB C-C. It doesn't work at all with the USB C port on the T480s. If I connect it by an USB A adapter to a USB A port (USB A port => USB A/USB C adapter => USB C-C Cable => Duex monitor) it does work. Also, the USB C port has a very shaky connection with my phone (Pixel 2), and it has done so since I got the laptop last October. It was so bad that I had thought it was only a charging port?until one time when I plugged my phone in to charge and USB data options unexpectedly popped up. Since then, I've tried using it for data transfers to my phone; but, unless the file is very small, it will almost always disconnect partway through. Same thing with trying to use the USB C port for Unity Remote. Both data transfers and Unity Remote work perfectly fine when I connect my phone with a USB A-C cable. Is the port broken or are USB C ports just not supposed to be good with data?

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:

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, What is your laptop ? Does it have docking port and use a PROPER docking station ?  If YES for both then yes, docking station will changer the battery on laptop, Normal USB port replicators (vendors also call them as docking startions) won't charge battery on laptop. Regards.

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.
