Dell Latitude D630 in docking station - no audio

Q: Dell Latitude D630 in docking station - no audio

D630, Windows 7 x86 7100 RC1

I am not getting any sound out of my speakers that are connected to the docking station. All the sound comes out through the built in speakers. I check playback devices and "Speakers" is listed with nothing to configure.

Anyone know any tricks?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Download and install the Vista (32/64 bit) drivers for you system from Dell's website. I chose not to install the application but only the driver and everything is working great.

Just installed Build 7100 on a Latitude D830 and it doesn't want to reconize the external monitors when docked. Network, mouse, keyboard are all fine but no displays. The Dell Fn keys don't seem to be doing anything either. This did not require any driver updates when I put Vista on it and evetrything worked great.

nvidia drivers from dell.com (Vista version) did the trick.

              We bought Dell docking stations D3100 to go with our Dell Latitude E7450.
I’m trying to configure the laptop for when the user disconnect it from the docking station, it automatically connect back to the network Wi-Fi.
Adapter Switching work great if I use the Ethernet adapter on the laptop itself. Once I disconnect the Network cable, it looks for the Wi-Fi and connects to it with no issue.
If I connect the network cable to the docking station, once I remove the connection from the docking to the laptop(usb3), I lose the wired network and it’s not even looking for the Wi-Fi.
I did configure the Dell gigabyte adapter on the docking station to be the first priority over the Wi-Fi just like I did for the laptop network adapter.
I updated the bios, firmware and drivers.
I also looked at the bios power management: Wireless Radio Control settings
Both local area network connections are above the Wireless one (priority)
Both Local area network adapter metric are set to 10 (only 1 is in use, both are set for testing purpose) while the wireless adapter metric is set to 9999.
As anyone had this issue or was able to get this working? Am I missing something ?

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

all I got a new E6410 and 2 docking stations around a month ago.
The problem I have is that when the notebook is in my office docking station it is really really slow.
I can watch while window contents are draw, switching messages inthugnerbird takes a couple of seconds.
In the home dokcing station everything is fine.
Can anyone give me a hint what I can do about.
I'm planning on calling dell support, but I guess they'll be pretty sceptical.

A:Latitude E6410 slow when in docking station

it may be taking forever trying to access network shares which are available at home but not at work.
I suggest swapping the two docking stations. If the same docking station has the same performance, then the one which causes slow performance is defective in some way. If the laptop is still slow at work and fast at home, then the problem is caused by there being something different about the environment.

Hey guys,
I have a latitude e7450 on a Dell E-Port Replicator Docking Station with USB 3.0, with an external monitor attached to the docking station.
When I boot up the laptop with the lid closed on the docking station, if freezes on the "dell" logo,
and does not get pass that to the windows welcome screen. I tried using the power button on the docking station to no avail. So I have to open the lid whenever I power up the system and it's really frustrating.
Is there a fix to this or is the system rigged to not boot up to windows whenever the lid is closed?

Thank you

We have around 100x E7440's and on most of them we have the same problem. 
When the machine is operated on battery then the lid is closed it goes to standby/hibernation (this is not the problem).
But when the machine is docked into the port replicator / docking station and switched on, as soon as Windows starts, it goes to Blue Screen.
OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit.

Hello there,
I dont really belive that anyone is abble to help me fix this problem but ill give it a shot coz this is reallt weaird and annoying.
So i am using an docking station to my dell, it has 5 USB ports (3 on the left and 2 on the back).
Now i am using a logitech wireless mouse. Whenever i plug the usb mouse receiver to any of the left ports, it works just fine. If I use any of the 2 on the back, it lags as hell and it seem to get stuck in every procces action, like moving files over explorer etc.
But thats not the most anyoing thing im expiriencing...
I wanted to make my life esier, so i bought a mini-pcie usb adapter, this one: 

And i plugged my mouse receiver to it- it works great! BUT WAIT, only if laptop is not connected to the docking station! If it is, im getting the exact same problem as i would connect the mouse receiver to the back of the docking station...
I tried reinstalling the root usb hubs but it havent changed anything. This is weird as hell.
I would really aprichiate if someone could help me with this problem. rly.

A:Latitude E6520 Docking station USB problem

I fixed the problem, im not sure if this was the cause, but lemme show what i did:
So at the start, please look at this picture:

The way those 2 slots are populated is not natural- what i mean is that at the beggining i only had the wan card and one slot was free. But, before installing the usb dongle with its card i had to move the wan card from wan slot to sataflash slot and insert the usb dongle into wan slot. Why? See the place i circles (squared?) with red color. This metal border was to close and the dongle was to long so it wouldnt fit.
This way it was buggish and when i turned the switch my mouse wasnt working instead of wireless...
What i did to fix this problem:
I ripped off some of the metal borded using sharp pliers and replaced the cards to the proper slots (wan card in wan slot, usbdongle in sataflash slot).
Everything seems to be working so far.

I am trying to connect 3 monitors to my Latitude 5480 when hooked to a K17A docking station.
I have one hooked up DP, one VGA and the other HDMI but the 3rd monitor will not work.
It appears that the Intel 520 supports 3 monitors and from what I read, it looks like the K17A should be able to support 1 analog and 2 digital but I simply cannot get this working.
Anyone have any issues with this, or more importantly a solution?

I just received my Latitude 7370 along with a D3100 docking station.
According this article: I should be able to get 2560x1440 on HDMI, I'm stuck at 2560x1080
Running 2 external monitors ( LG-34UC87C-B)
Display port @ 3440x1440 (this works fine for me)
HDMI 1 @ 2560x1440 ( I cannot reach this, I can only get 2560x1080..?)
HDM 2 is not used
Running the HDMI @ 2560x1080 just looks horrible, how can I achive the 2560x1440 that this device states it can handle?
If the D3100 cannot handle what I require does Dell make a Docking station for the 7370 that will handle idealy 3440x1440 x2? either HDMI or DisplayPort.

My laptop connected perfectly months ago to my home wireless network. Then my son borrowed it to game on and changed settings to connect to his pc as a monitor or something. When he gave it back, i can click and see my home wireless listed, however, when I click connect it will not connect. The only way I can connect is by connecting an ethernet. I am disabled so sitting on the floor is getting hard. Can anyone help me get back to wireless again?
Yes, the wireless switch is slid on, on the side.
Yes, i have rebooted.
I have tried to restore to a previous point, however it only shows 2 recent dates....
Thanks for your help in advance.

First you need to contact that son of yours and give him a bit of your mind after he tells you what he changed.
He should come back and undo those changes.

Can you see the network name being listed in the wireless drop down?
Or any network in the drop down listing?

Hi all,
ok I pulled a real boner and it has me going nuts. I bought a used Dell D630, the unit had/has a bios boot password. Well the price was good has an extended battery etc, clean machine etc. I thought what the hell I should be able to work around that! LOL wrong
anyways while trying different key strokes while booting I found a combo that did something. As the unit is booting I held the CTRL key down and mashed the 'D" key (not the delete key "D" as in Delta) a zilllion times, well the password screen came up with normal text except a now it showed a few garbage characters, ok it is doing something. I repeated the boot and mash three more times and finally came up with total googly gawk. Cool maybe I got somewhere, did a reboot with no mashing.....oop's NO video, unit lights up, drives come on back light comes on NO nothing no text no boot no post screen nothing!

Removed cmos battery, took out battery unplugged power held down the power button for minutes...walla nothing. It appears I bricked the unit? it wouldn't even boot up with a live cd. So now have I just flushed 150.00 down the toilet? from key combos? I even tried the external monitor that didn't work.....any ideas? Thanx all

A:Solved: Dell Latitude D630

Go to Control Panel - Power Options.

Since you have a laptop, there should be a setting that's associated with closing the lid.

Set it on "Do nothing", then apply the change, then restart the computer.


You might also want to set the power scheme on "Always on" and set all the other settings on "Never" and turn off hibernation.

I recently acquired a Dell Latitude D630. It only had one issue, the battery was bad. I can deal with that.

After having it and using it, working fine of course, for about a month or two it shuts down on its own and restarts. Thinking "okay, that's a bit weird but its working fine" I go back to browsing the web only to have my screen discolor to a shade of pinkish purple with a hint of the matrix and freeze up for a period of two minutes. Then it goes complete glitch and my screen flashes with an almost statically distorted image where it then tries to blue screen but the screen display is so messed up I can barely tell what it is.

And so I restart it. Nothing off or wrong when I login to my admin account. Everything works fine for ten mins tops while I am running a virus scan and a sys diagnostic. Near the end of the processes I run it does the same thing.

In normal boot, I can get 5 minutes top before it complete fritzes and restarts itself, after screen distorted images.

safe Mode with Networking works fine, when I can even connect to a network.

All I want to do is play a game or browse the web but I can't even do that now. Any and all ideas, fixes, etc would be greatly appreciated!!

Well...it seems even worse than I thought simply because now I can't get past the initial Dell Logo at the boot without a lit up black screen and that annoyingly persistent beep. With a slight opportunity for a beautiful, peaceful white screen to coun... Read more

Hello... I'm hoping someone can help me out on this...

I replaced the LCD for the dell laptop since it was stepped on an broken. The computer worked perfectly before installing the new screen, except for the fact that you could only see on half the screen and the other half was shattered.

I bought the screen off of ebay using a part number and installed it. Now the united doesn't even power up. Nothing, completely dead. It was suggested that the motherboard fried and perhaps it was the wrong part... however it never turned on at all since. Not for a second or anything. Took it to another guy and he said the keyboard isn't hitting the power button and there should be a way to turn it on without the keyboard. Perhaps under the wifi? I can't find the switch, though it looks to me like its just on the keyboard. If so, is it possible that it's just the keyboard that was busted? I did remove it because I thought it was necessary though it turned out not to be.

Any help would be really great, as it appears as though I broke my bosses relatively new laptop. Thanks in advance.

I'm having a problem with my computer.
I haven't done anything out of the ordinary. The other day I was on my computer and all of the sudden a screen appeared over my current screen. It almost looked like a screen in a window but with a yellow color so I could still see the window I had open. It froze my computer and within 30 seconds, it had shut down. I tried to reboot the computer but it did not turn on.

I then took out the battery and put it back in, but nothing worked. About 30 minutes later it finally turned back on but within 10 minutes, the same thing happened. This happened another 4 times that evening.

The next day when I finally got the computer going for more then 15 minutes. I ran a full scan for the computer and for the internet. Everything came up negative.

I was wondering if anyone knows what this problem is and if so how to fix it.

Thank you so much.

When the laptop is plugged into the docking station headphones won't work, regardless of whether I plug them into the laptop or the docking station.  This means that every time I want to make a Skype call, for example, I have to disconnect from the docking station and plug the headphones into the laptop.  Any one have any suggestions?

A:Latitude E5550 - headphones won't work when laptop is plugged into docking station

Is the headset being detected at all by the notebook when detected? Right click on the speaker icon on the task bar and choose playback devices, are the headphones listed? If they are listed click on it and then click the configure button to bring up speaker setup. Click the test button and do you get the test chimes via the headset?
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.

The rest is being used by Windows or hardware inside the system - that's normal;  it means you have 25% of your memory available.
If the system has an integrated Intel GPU (likely, as most of the discrete nVidia ones are long dead due to a design fault by now), it's also using system memory for video purposes.

My D630 recently started behaving weirdly by "freezing up" occasionally during normal operation and wouldn't respond to any mouse click.

A:Dell Latitude D630 Black Screen

Try an external screen - if it shows a good image, it is likely a bad display panel (and/or backlight, part of the display).
If not, it's a bad video chip - - and you'll need to replace the mainboard.

Hello all,

I have an issue with this older laptop I would like to use more.

It appears that whenever I fresh install Windows 7 on it and leave it on overnight, it is off when I wake up in the morning. I don't know why it does this..

I don't believe it is overheating because I leave it on for several hours in the day and it stays on just fine, but when I go to bed it turns off. My power settings are for it to stay on all day as well, unless I prompt it to turn off. I do not have any viruses either as I've done a fresh install.

I have ran my diagnostic test and everything went fine and now I'm doing additional memory tests.

I'm totally lost here..

Hi all,

I have a Dell Latitude D630 and I would like to attach 2 external monitors to it and make one a default monitor and the other the extended with the lid of the laptop closed. The integrated video card is a Mobile Intel GMA X3100, and i have a port replicator (not a docking station).

What i've done is attached a dongle to the replicator, attached both external monitors, closed the laptop, and then both monitors are clones. I go into display properties\settings tab and select monitor number 1 to be default, selected monitor 2 and checked "extend Windows..." click apply but the "extend Windows..." selection deselects and goes back to original configuration.

Second try: I opened the lid to the laptop and sucessfully set the laptop as default monitor and "extend Windows..." to monitor "2" but both external monitors are clones. So essectially the system recognizes 2 monitors, one is the lcd on the laptop, and the second are both the external monitors.

I understand that the video card can only recognize two monitors therefore we will not see "3" monitors in the display properties. But i don't need the laptop and both monitors to work. What I'd like is to have my laptop lid closed, monitor 1 be the default, and monitor 2 be the extended, but the system is still seeing 3 monitors instead of 2 even with the lid of the laptop closed. Does someone know how to trick the system? Thank you in advance for your help... Read more

789MHz, 3.99 GB of RAM
70GB Hardrive
I recently upgraded from 1gbx2 to 2gbx2 and, well I guess ram does no justice anymore in helping computers
just a theory I read and heard from friends. applies to PC only? I guess no help if you 
if you don't update other stuff? or I don't understand. figured RAM "helped speed up process of 
opening/closing stuff. and possibly video gaming. computer ran pretty smoothly on the 2gbs ram. but I finally 
upped the RAM to 4gbs. I know you can replace intergrated video card but that goes into $$ I don't have 
but why is my laptop not really 
regognizing the new ram. runs no better than it did with 2GBs. says I have 3.99GBs why not a full four? 
I guess memory is CPU? or Hardrive. but someone said I need to upgrade my hardrive to a 120. and replace cpu, with a 2.50
or even 3.0 I'm like, still $$ might as well buy a new laptop. can anyone give a helping mind to what I do. I put in ram.
"Your system memory has changed, what would you like to do" or something. I'm unsure what to do.. so it runs right. their's three options. but don't recall what they are. any help would be most thanked! 

A:Concern of Upgrading RAM on Dell Latitude D630 (HELP)

hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!!
considering that your Lappy is windows XP, it may be time to consider a new PC rather than upgrading an unsupported XP machine. but i can definiltely understand not wanting to just de-commission a PC that should still run well with that Core2 in it.
RAM is a data hold area that is frequently accessed in a cache, to avoid hard drive accessing, which is considerably slower..everytime the PC is reset or powered down, the RAM resets and is ready for a new session to issue data to it for a temporary access channel. there are a number of options for you. you could consider a thorough backup of data on an external media and a windows 7 home premium 64 bit clean install which would wipe your hard drive clean. those windows licenses are around $100 though.  70gb hard disk space is plenty for a casual user that isn't storing massive media files and such. but most users  aren't comfortable with only around 50gb hard drive space free (windows x64 needs around 20gb itself and then needs another 10gb just to run in spec)
or, you could go with the windows 7 32 bit, which is fine also, and won't be so  demanding of resources like hard drive space and RAM. the 4gb RAM is  the maximum that can be read with a 32 bit OS system though and that is what you have so you will be fine there.
after a ram upgrade, XP alerts the user that the hardware is found and then asks for further configuration , at which time, ... Read more
