T480 mouse cursor freezes sporadically when plugged into ultra docking station

Q: T480 mouse cursor freezes sporadically when plugged into ultra docking station

I have a new Thinkpad T480 docked to a new ultra docking station. I have a new Logitech M500 (corded) mouse plugged into a USB port on the docking station. As I am using the mouse, the cursor will sporadically "freeze" on screen for a couple seconds and then go back to normal. This will happen frequently as I am using the computer. Very frustrating. Substituting this mouse for a Logitech MX400 yields the same results. If I instead plug (either) mouse into the laptop directly (instead of the dock), the issue is does not occur. Any ideas as to why this is occuring and what I can do to fix it? I have already installed the latest updates from Lenovo Updater and for Logitech Setpoint as well. Thank you,CJ

I recently purchased a T480 and ThinkPad Pro Docking Station (40AH).  While the laptop is docked it does not recognize the USB ports that are on the docking station but other ports (Dual DisplayPort and ethernet) work fine.  I am able to plug a device into the always on charging USB port and it will receive power, however, the laptop does not see it.  I have tried updating all drivers on the T480 and Pro Docking support pages including the firmware updates for the dock itself but nothing will get them to be recognized.  Running the USB firmware for the docking station repeatedly says no devices found and goes no further than that. Already have tried replacing the docking station through Lenovo Support and the same issue was seen with the replacement.  Both the laptop and docking station were new out of the box when this started.  Unsure what else to try to get the USB hub inside the dock to be recognized.

I'm considering buying a docking station to go with my T480 but I'm not certain what solution is best for me.I want to connect two monitors, one runs [email protected] (VGA or DVI) and the other [email protected] (VGA or HDMI). Initially I was considering the 'ThinkPad USB-C-dockingstation (40A90090EU)' and use the VGA plus one of the DP ports with an adapter. However, when I was reading the display configuration options for this dock I came to the conclusion that this does not seem to be possible. (https://support.lenovo.com/nl/en/solutions/pd029622#USB-C%20dock) Browsing through the forum the second best option appears to be the 'ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock (40AC, 40AC0135XX)'. The advantage is that it supports higher resolutions and direct HDMI connectivity. What I read from the display configuration options my configuration should not be an issue. (https://support.lenovo.com/nl/en/solutions/pd029622#thunderbolt)However, I cannot confirm that this dock is compatible with a T480. I think it should be as the T480 manual lists one of the USB-C connectors on the left as Thunderbolt-3 compatible. Does anyone have experience with this combination of hardware or otherwise can someone confirm this solution is going to work?The docks are just to expensive for just giving it a try in my opinion.

I don't know which notebook model you have, but I'm finding random posts online about HP notebooks only being able to drive one analog monitor at a time, so you may be out of luck there. That docking station firmware update is for Displayport hub built into the docking station.  It can only be updated if you're connected to at least one monitor using displayport.  And it has nothing to do with analog port anyway, so it won't help you even if you could update the firmware.

I have a new LG ultra wide monitor that has support for HDMI and DisplayPort that I cannot seem to get working.  I have tried connecting the displayport cable to the dock and montior and I do not get a signal at all.  I have also tried the HDMI connection but I cannot get the resolution to the recommended 2560 x1080. Any direction would be very helpful/.

A:Dell XPS with Docking Station and LG Ultra Wide Monitor...

DisplayLink can support that resolution, but the D1000 is a very old dock that uses a very old DisplayLink chipset, and that particular chipset probably doesn't.  However, even with a newer version of DisplayLink such as would be found in the D6000 dock, DisplayLink would give you an inferior experience at that resolution anyway if you ever did things like gaming or full-screen video.  You really want your display to be directly controlled by the GPU.  So, considering that you have a 9550 that has a Thunderbolt 3 port, you have two options:
- Buy a USB-C to DisplayPort adapter, which would tap into the native GPU DisplayPort output wired to that port.
- If you want to have everything connected to a dock, buy either a WD15 or TB16 dock.  Either one would allow the attached display(s) to be driven directly by your GPU rather than through DisplayLink, and unlike your D1000, these docks can additionally charge your system via their USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 cable, so you'd have a true single-cable solution.  The WD15 allows a single display of that resolution (or dual 1080p), and the TB16 allows up to dual 4K displays or three 2560x1600 displays.  Since you have an XPS 15 9550, with the WD15 you'd need the 180W adapter version and with the TB16 you'd need the 240W adapter version.

I have a ThinkPad X240 laptop with Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 installed. Sound plays just fine from the laptop's speakers, and when I plug external speakers into the laptop's 3.5mm audio port they work just fine too.But...when the laptop is docked in my Ultra Dock 90W docking station and the external speakers cable is plugged into the dock's audio port, no sound is heard. If I'm playing music through the laptop's speakers, as soon as I plug a cable into the dock's audio port no sound is heard. I can still use the laptop's audio port to connect external speakers, but that defeats the object of having an audio port on the Ultra Dock.The Ultra Dock has (I believe) the latest firmware installed (version 2.22.000) and I have the latest audio drivers installed: in Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Realtek High Definition Audio > Driver version is 6.0.1.7188 which is the latest available from Lenovo Support downloads.What do I need to do to get the Ultra Dock's audio port working?Kind regards,/Neil PS.

I plugged in my docking station after not using it because of audio problems with it.  I believed the audio problems had been fixed on my laptop so plugged in the docking station and  now no audio.

A:No audio after docking station is plugged in

In Windows 7 I had this same problem when I first connected my laptop to my dock. I had to right click on the small speaker icon down by the clock and choose playback devices. There was a playback device 'Speakers / HP' that I right clicked and chose to set as default. Now the audio out jack on the docking station works. It might be necessary to make another manual change after undocking to get the headphone jack on the laptop to work again, but I haven't tested yet, so it might just work... Good luck.

Hi. I am not a computer tech, so pardon my lack of pc language. I have a Dell Studio, running Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit OS). I have a docking station that I plug into with a monitor, keyboard, etc. For the past few months, I have not used the docking station, but this past weekend, I plugged my laptop into the docking station. I got a request for some sort of update (sorry I don't remember what for, but think it had something to do with video/monitor maybe). I went through the motions, and I think the update failed to install. I rebooted the system, and it runs fine. The only problem I encounter is when I play Runescape online, my laptop provides no warnings, and it just shuts itself off after about 15 minutes of play time. I have tried using different internet browsers (Firefox and Google Chrome) and that does not seem to help. I unplugged the laptop, and played RS and I had no problems, so I feel that the issue is with the docking station or monitor. I have no idea how to proceed in attempting to fix this issue. Please help.

I'm experiencing an issue with intermittent shutdowns on my new T580 (20L9) with the Ultra Docking Station (40AJ). The issue appears to derive from the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework driver, as I typically see a corresponding error (DPTF Event ID 256 - Unhandled Exception) in Event Viewer, the details for which I'm including below. I'm running Windows 10 x64 1803 (Build 17134.81). It appears that certain CPU/GPU-intensive tasks will tip the driver to immediately put the system in sleep mode, so not technically a full system shutdown. Most recently, I attempted to restore a browser session in Chrome after an OS restart, opening a number of browser windows w/ multiple tabs each, which triggered the issue. Over the course of my daily use, it will happen anywhere from one to five times, and it's extremely annoying.
 
I have not experienced the issue with the system undocked, however, my computer is docked about 90% of the time I'm using the machine, and I did recently update to Win 10 1803, which could be part of the problem (?) I am using **all** of the latest drivers available on Lenovo's site, including that for the Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework, version 8.3.10207.5567 as of the time of this post. I'm also running the latest BIOS, i.e. 1.10.

A:Random sleeps on T580 w/ Ultra Docking Station - Intel Thermal Framework issue

Did you ever get this resolved?  I have a user with the exact same symptoms, but we haven't done a lot of testing off the dock yet.  We've updated to the latest Intel Thermal Framework drivers from Lenovo (Just came out on 6/8) but that didn't help.  Updated to the latest drivers from Intel, no better.  Tried dock firmware, nothing.  Lenovo came out and replaced the system board - no better.  We push a clean corporate image to ALL machines, include a few hundred Thinkpads we have out there, and this is the only one exhibiting this behavior (Also the only T580 we have out there so far, everything else is T480.)  Lenovo wants their image back on it before we do anything else, which is tough because the user is a few hundred miles away.

The combination has been working fine until the last week or so. Several times a day, the input will freeze. Neither mouse nor keyboard respond to input. This includes the keyboard and touchpad on the laptop. If I undock the laptop and allow it to reset, then redock, everything works again. At first I thought this might be a dock hardware issue.

We experience laggy, delay when using mouse and keyboard. It does not matter if cord/cordless or plug in directly to laptop or to docking station

Using laptop by itself dont have that problem

It prove to me the limitation of USB 3.0 bandwidth create this issue

Not too sure if Dell is aware of it and make any improvement. I have chat with ProSupport but so far only recommendation is to upgrade laptop to latest firmware

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?

Hi Guys, so I've just finished a HTPC build and using HippoRemote on the iPhone to control Windows. Works great if I have a mouse plugged in but as soon as I remove the mouse the cursor hides itself. I can still click on things etc but it makes it pretty hard to do without the cursor being visible.

Is there a way to force Windows 8 to always show the cursor? I'm guessing it disables the cursor if no mouse is plugged in so one option is to buy a wireless mouse dongle and plug that in to trick Windows into thinking I am using a mouse, but I'd rather not if I don't have to.

Any ideas?

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/.../

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.

My mouse cursor will randomly freeze or disappear, yet it remains active. I can still use it by feel. If I turn mouse trails on a duplicate mouse shows up that works and the frozen one remains, although its not completely frozen as it will still change into other cursors ie the hourglass. Eventually mouse trails turn off all on its own and im left with no cursor again. I've updated drivers and checked all the settings and am left with no solution. Any help would be very appreciated.

Hi everyone,
My mouse cursor freezes on the screen everyonce in a while .After I wait about 10 seconds I can move it.
I have a HP7920 and my os is Windows ME.
 

A:mouse cursor freezes

This is usually indicitave that your computer is busy processing something else at the time (another program)...or that your system resources are low...

To find out if either of these are the case...
1.) Reboot your computer...
2.) Right click on My Computer...
3.) Select properties...
4.) Select Performance...

If your performance is more than 85%...your computer should typically be fine. (Be aware that opening more programs throughout the day can lower this number...at that point...it should always be kept above 70%...if it's not...you should look into adding more RAM.
If your performance is less than 85% on boot...try this...

1.) Start
2.) Run
3.) Msconfig
4.) Startup...(the top right option usually...)

You're going to notice that a number of these are checked...Most of them shouldn't be...and others you might want to keep...Virtually every program puts itself here after installation, slowing your computer. Monitor this frequently...

I hope that these simple solutions help...

- David

Im playing Oblivion and for some reason my mouse cursor will freeze every 10 seconds or so while the game continues and then will unfreeze... This is very frustrating and makes me not want to play... Is their any way to fix this problem? I ran disk defragment, I ran disk clean up. I checked my mouses drivers they are up to date... I have no idea why its doing this except maybe some mods I downloaded is making this happen, if so is their any way to fix this without deactivating my mods or re installing the game?

Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at my problem.


I just moved to a new apartment and today I finally plugged in and set up my desktop PC for the first time since moving. The computer has never had any problems before, and it had been running on a clean install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit for only a month before I moved, with avg/firewall/spybot&malwarebytes--so it should be free of viruses or malware. Now that I have set it up in my new room, the computer will boot to windows login, get to the desktop, work normally for about 3 minutes, and then everything freezes except for the mouse cursor. Can't click anything, ctrl+alt+delete, completely non-responsive. I left it like this for 20 minutes to be sure, but it seems to be a permanent freeze until restart.

The computer is a custom-built PC with a EVGA P55-SLI mobo, core-i5 750 @stock, 4gb 1333mhz RAM, radeon 5770, and 640gb SATA-2 hard drive, and an 850w corsair PSU. I ran memtest for 12 hours only 2 months ago and it was perfect with no errors, so I don't think that it's a memory issue unless the memory degraded catastrophically over that period when it's hardly been used. The case runs very cool (one 120mm in front, one in back, artic freezer tower on the cpu, HAWK heatpipe cooler on the gpu). I've opened her up, checked all the physical connections between the mobo and components, cleaned all the dust out...

I'm at a loss here. The house i've just moved into is pretty old, and I don't know if the elect... Read more

I was instructed by someone over in the forums to post your hijack logs to post my problem here:

For some reason, my mouse cursor after a few minutes of use will freeze up on my screen. The icon will not move, however, if I were to pull the mouse down and to the left and click, the start menu would pop up. I hope I'm explaining clear enough the situation. The actual image of the cursor itslef does not move, however, I can still move and use the mouse, but I cannot see where I am moving it to, I just have to guess where it is on the screen and click becuase the mouse cursor image is frozen. While the cursor is frozen in its one position, the icon changes in accordance to where the real arrow is on the screen (text cursor over a text input area, finger pointer when I'm over a link, etc.).

In safe mode however, I do not seem to experience this problem. I've run every possible anti virus and adware programs possible, and cleaned up my hijack entry to the extreme. I've also tried a different mouse but I still experience the same problem. I had a feeling from the start it was some software/device issue because the mouse works, but I just can't see what I'm doing, and this happens on any mouse used on my PC. I've also reinstalled the driver to make sure that wasn't it, but nothing helped.

If anyone has any suggestions on what to do, please let me know. Thanks.
 

A:Mouse Cursor Freezes On Screen

I've had the same problem since yesterday !
Coincidence or new threat ?
I doubt it could be a threat as I'm well protected.
Recently I'm experiencing a highly low performance of my computer and I'm looking into it. One of the problem seemed to be the connect software from Sony for the new NW-a3000 mp3 jukebox, seemed to be installed twice (thank to an update ?).
As a test I'm monitoring the speed of unpacking RAR archives. Before I was around 4000 kb/s in the good moments. And then it went to 400 kb/s !!
After uninstalling the connect software I was more like around 1100 kb/s ...

I'm still not sure about that but now I saw that some of my partition are highly (>50%) fragmented, especialy my download partition. I'm then running diskeeper to clean a little.

One possible cause of the cursor problem I would see is that when I run uTorrent for example (bittorrent download) with 5 or 6 big files downloading I have a slow mouse cursor. Could be that at some point It get lot.

I'm also suspecting a software I'm using : YourUninstaller. It looks after an unistall all possible left regsitry keys, and there are often a lot found. I'm almost sure that 99% of them should be removed, but what if an important registry key is removed and I'm not careful enough ... I'm always suspecting that software to maybe cause problems on my computer.

If all my investigation doesn't give any result I'll install a fre... Read more

I have a Pavilion I bought back in 2013 and this problem has persisted and I have decided finally to try to find out if there is a fix. I leave it on when I am not at home because I have it connected to a Lacrosse weather station and it records at 10 min intervals. I will sometimes come home or even wake up in the morning to find the mouse cursor gone funny, looking sort of like a ladder or thermometer. As you move around to window corners, sides, tops and bottoms, it changes to other funny looking shapes. Once I start using the machine under this condition it is a matter of time before the machine freezes. Restarting it normally takes two tries as the first one does not take and of course I need to hold the power button to shut it down since it is frozen. Restarting it brings up the screen offering choices of normal, safe mode, etc. Normal works fine. If I find the machine in this state and very quickly use the start menu to restart it, it will shut down but not restart. The blue light is on at the top of the machine but screen is dead. Then I can hold the power button to shut it down completely and start it cold and all is well. I am running Win 7 home premium 64 bit. Any suggestions? Takeing this to a repair shop does not seem to be an option as the problem is extremely intermittent. Thanks in advance for any help. Charles
