HP Spectre x360 Universal Docking Station Recommendations

Q: HP Spectre x360 Universal Docking Station Recommendations

What Universal Docking Station do you recommend for my Spectre x360 13-4005dx? On the HP Store under Universal Docking Stations there are 4 to choose from. 2 that are Targus brand and 2 that are Belkin brand. I am aware there is not a docking port on my Spectre x360, but that the Universal Docking Stations are connected to the PC via USB 3.0. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: HP Spectre x360 Universal Docking Station Recommendations

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.)

A: HP Spectre x360 Universal Docking Station Recommendations

Any of those should work well for you; it comes down to the options and your personal preferences. Try the one that looks like it will best meet your needs.

Hi, I'm searching a Docking Station for my HP Spectre X360. I mean one I can keep my Spectre closed and use external Display, Keyboard and mouse, one with the on/off button on the Docking, let's say a "classic" one. Does HP (or others) provide such a Docinkg station for the Spectre X360? Which Model should I buy? Many thanks for your support! 

A:Docking Station HP Spectre X360

There is no classic "snap-down" docking station with an on-off button for that model. You would have to use a usb port replicator. Does your model have USB-C Thunderbolt charging?

I need a dual-display docking station that supports Display Port to connect to the newest HP Spectre x360 - 13-w063nr. I'm using the Spectre as a portable work station, so I need it to disconnect easily from the two monitors. Does anyone have suggestions about a docking station? I would need a brand name and model number of the docking station.

A:HP Spectre x360 - 13-w063nr docking station

Hi, Your machine does not have docking port therefore all you can do is to use USB port replicators (vendoes also call them a docking srations). To disconnect monitors all you need is to pull out the USB. Please check the following list:     http://store.hp.com/us/en/mdp/docking-stations-142510--1 Regards.

I'm looking for a laptop that will snap into a docking station. I haven't been very successful so far. What I find primarily are docking stations that plug into a laptop's USB port. The two problems that I have with these are that they generally don't seem to do video well, and they generally don't let you close the laptop, which leaves a clumsy setup for staff as they use it. I have a few Targus docking stations, but they're really not being used much. I'd like to simply replace desktops with the docking stations, and it seems that finding a laptop with a snap-in bottom would be ideal.

Any good recommendations for this?

Thanks.

Hello I am having alot of trouble finding good advice and a list of compatible devices for my X360. After reading alot of forum posts I purchased the Dell Active Pen PN556w which was said to work with the laptop and be excellent. I have bought it and it does not work.  I am unsure if this is a drivers issue, hardware issue or what. i Suspect that many of the reviews are for the G1 which has a different hardware componeant. HP have replaced the screen on the laptop which they reported as faulty but I have tried a bamboo and a surface pen on it and neither of them work.  I bought this exclusively for use with one not and meetings and as it stands it is a lovely laptop except for this crucial point. if the purchased pen does not work, then what pens will? Any and all help given will be appreciated.

Hi, So having a bit of a frustrating experience finding a working dock for the new Spectre X360 (Kaby Lake). I need something with PD (power in), HDMI/DVI or DP out (two ports if fine, one up to 4k), and a few USB ports. I've tried a cheap aukey one and though HDMI works it's buggy. I'm now looking at this guy P5Q54UT - HP Elite Thunderbolt 3 Dock 65W but not entirely sure if it'll work. A few pluggable docks specifically mention that HP is not supported or claim HP doesn't support alt-mode (for USB C) and PD 2.0 spec. Any guidance is appreciated.

Just purchased three Inspiron 15 5567 laptops (i5 @ 2.5GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) and one user is asking for a 'docking station' or 'port replicator' so he has a single connection to disconnect when he needs to move the laptop.
Presently, he has connected an HDMI monitor, the GB network connection, and three USB connections, which pretty much "maxxes him out" as regards external devices, and lends to his "confusion factor" when he needs to travel with the laptop.
As a relative 'novice' with a laptop (he previously had an OLD Optiplex GX280 Pentium-4 desktop), he is 'uncertain' about connections to externals so I suggested the 'dock' or 'port replicator' to address this. 
Now I need help in determining what is "best" for this use: the Dell D3100 USB 3.0 dock or something different(?).  Unfortunately, I've read a few 'disheartening' reviews in regard to the D3100, but what might be a viable alternative? (bearing in mind that this has to be 'brain dead simple' for this user..)
So... Can anyone suggest alternatives, or give an 'unbiased' assessment of the D3100 dock station..?

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:

File Transfer - Help Wanted

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.
