Compatibility problem with Portege 7020 / 7200 CT display & docking station

Q: Compatibility problem with Portege 7020 / 7200 CT display & docking station

Hi guys,

i am experiencing some problems with the 2 mentioned laptops.

The 1st one is:
I bought a used 7020 to replace the broken screen of 7200. After disassembled the screen, I noticed that the connectors have the same number of wires, but one of the terminal of the 7200's screen has a larger socket. "no problem" I thought, and with patience I picked up the cable of the 7020 adapter an put it into the 7200.
But when i turned it on i saw only colored lines and squares :S :S
If you want i can provide the PN, if it could help...Even if i check the compatibility before order.

2nd problem:
Portege 7200 recognize correctly the docking station, while the 7020 emit some beeps before boot, and obviously it doesn't work with him. I checked on toshiba's site and the dock would be totally compatible!

And for last... Where can i find bios updates?

Sorry for my bad english, i hope that someone could help me!

regards,
Francesco

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 Francesco

You will be really lucky if anyone here can help you with these old notebook models. I am pretty sure they are about 10 years old.
Without maintenance manuals and enough knowledge is not easy to help you with this display replacement.

This issue with docking station can be related to defective hardware. Both notebooks are so similar and both of them can be used with this docking station. How you can be sure hardware is top on 7020?

BIOS updates are available on http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp but as I can see for Portege 7000 there is no BIOS update, just for 7020.

If you want you can contact nearest Toshiba service provider. they have maintenance manuals for this old notebooks and they can help you offering exact info about parts you need.

The mobo my T430 died, and I am considering a T450.  My questions are three-fold. First, do they use the same power supply?  I only have about 4 of the T430 ones..... Second, will the T450 fit in the T430 docking station?  Lenovo's docking station compatibility finder doesn't list these any longer. Third, will the T430 hard drive fit in the T450?  I don't believe that it will as they are different interfaces, but I have a lot of data on the HD.  Might have to get one of those Startech external power systems and copy things over. Thanks!

Hello,
I have a new XPS 13 9350 laptop (running Windows 10 Home) which I am trying to use with a D3100 docking station, connected to two S2415H monitors via HDMI cables.  I am having various issues with this:

The laptop does not charge via the docking station.
I experience strange intermittent issues when connected to the docking station.  For example, sometimes my internet connection simply doesn't work and/or Chrome crashes (neither of which happen when not connected to the docking station).

My primary question is around compatibility.  The Dell website is entirely unclear as to which docking station(s) are or aren't compatible with the XPS 13 9350 (specifically the 9350, not earlier models).  I have looked at the product pages for the XPS 13 9350, the D3100 docking station and the newly available Thunderbolt Dock-TB15 docking station.  None of these pages explicitly show that the laptop is compatible with either of these docking stations.
So...could someone please confirm what is or isn't compatible?  The D3100 docking station doesn't appear to be fully compatible, but I suppose this could also be an issues with Windows 10 as well.
Thank you in advance,
Mark

A:XPS 13 9350 docking station compatibility

Just got off a chat with Dell and they stated the D3100 is compatible with the XPS 9350.  This means virtually nothing, as "compatible" doesn't mean it works properly in my experience. 
Have you updated the drivers and/or BIOS? 
Also, the D3100 doesn't charge ANYTHING. It does not have that capability.

Apologies if there is already a thread on this but I find the new forum format impossible to search.  Any tips on how to narrow down searches would be gratefully received.

A:Docking station compatibility with dual DVI monitors

I have multiple users using dual DVI monitors and the docking station. At this time, I have only been able to get them up and running using one as a DVI monitor and the other as VGA.
Another post says to connect both to the DVI output, then manually configure the monitors to the DVI input using the monitors menu system. (Not the "Auto Detect" ), then with both monitors powered up, dock the laptop. I am trying this tomorrow.
Once the dual monitors are up and running, open the windows Display properties, select the NVIDIA tab, go to the NVIDIA console and setup your configuration as desired. Exit the console, then the Windows Display properties, and it should hold the configuration.

Hello. Purchase a Yoga 710 and have been trying to find a portable docking station for this laptop. Many available in the market but dont want to purchase if it wont work. This particular laptop lacks in ports (I didnt think to look before I bought it) and have been struggling to get even one external monitor connected since most monitors being sold are either standard HDMI, not the mini hdmi port on this laptop. I had to order a HDMI mini cable to finally get an external monitor to work, but now i want to have the ease of use of plugging in my keyboard, mouse, micrphone, headset and x2 monitors so i dont have to mess with all these cables each time i move the laptop from point A to point B. Is there a port on my laptop that will allow me to connect to a portable docking station?

When trying to use a Displayport to VGA or a Displayport to DVI cable to connect from an HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking station to an external display, the display comes up with no signal and goes to sleep. Connecting with a VGA cable, it works fine. We were able to replicate this issue with multiple new, fresh out of the box docking stations. The issue happens on any monitors that we connect, even ones that work with other docks. It seems to be the Intel Displayport Topology is picking up the display and making it so that the displayport cannot be activated without connecting 3 monitors.  The older version of the Ultraslim Docking station that only had 1 displayport seems to work just fine, it's just the newer 2013 version that has 2 displayports that has this issue.  Does anyone know if there is any newer firmware or where I can disable/stop the Displayport Topology from picking up this one monitor and trying to make it 3 displays? If not, we're probably going to have to go back to USB adapters and those are no fun. Thanks,Andrew System info:HP Elitebook 840 G1, G2, and G3 (Issue has occured with all 3 models.)Windows 7 Enterprise x64HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking StationDock Firmware 2.30Updated Graphics, Chipset and USB drivers to latest version from HP's website.

Hey there.

I've got a user that has a Tecra M9 on a docking station.
There are 2 monitors connected to the docking station, one with VGA, the other with DVI. I use the Nvidia control panel and set up the displays and all is good in the world.
That is until the user undocks the laptop, does some work at home, then brings the laptop back in.

From that point, only one monitor is working, with the second out of action.
I can go back in and reset the setup, but the user doesn't want that to happen everyday.

Any suggestions on how to get the laptop to save the settings depending on if it's docked or undocked?

I have a Dell E5440 laptop issued to me at work. I added a Dell Latitude E Series PR03X Docking Station and recently replaced a 1920 x 1080 monitor with an LG 29UB55-B 29" UltraWide monitor with a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1080. The docking station has two ports, a DVI port and a DisplayPort. I discovered pretty quickly that the DVI port is single-link since my external monitor's resolution maxed out at 1920 x 1080. I ordered a DisplayPort cable in the hope that it will support the monitor's full resolution, but this question occurred to me:
Can the E5440 support an external monitor at that resolution? It used two video solutions, the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and a Nvidia GeForce 720M Discrete Graphics Card with 2 GB of RAM.
It uses two video solutions, the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and a Nvidia GeForce 720M Discrete Graphics Card with 2 GB of RAM, and apparently switches from one to the other depending on demand. My research suggests that both can support the resolution I need, but only through a DisplayPort. Of note, the laptop itself doesn't have a DisplayPort, but the docking station does. I don't know if that is a problem or not.
Is anyone else out there successfully driving a 2560 x 1080 monitor with a Dell docking station and laptop?

A:Can my Dell E5440 drive a 2560 x 1080 display through the docking station?

Thank you for your message.This system does support a resolution of 2560 x 1080.The maximum resolution supported by the Intel graphic card is 3840x2160.As you mentioned, you have a switchable graphic card. When there is a graphic intense application used, the system will automatically switch to the discrete card.You can also manually set the application to automatically open with the discrete card.You will need to use an HDMI – Display port adapter.

I would hold down the power button trying to force a reboot and nothing. I disconnected eveything thing, unplugged it and re-plugged ... nothing. I unplugged everything again and in desperation took out the battery and put in back in and bingo it started up. I re-hooked everything and went on my merry way. Sometime later, bang it happens again. I tried the same corrections and they worked. The THIRD time this happend I left OFF the DOCKING STATION and it has not happened again.

Any ideas? Does Vista have docking station issues? Is this a lousy docking station? Does anyone recommend a good docking station. I really want a docking 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:

Whenever I turn my notebook on, the docking station is never recognized (I.e the computer always thinks it is detached from its docking station). Occasionally the computer can access the 2nd battery in the docking station when connected, but the keyboard and touch pad, along with the D Drive are inaccessible. When I charge the tablet part via the docking station, the LED light flashes between white, orange and off and cycles. It doesn't charge Battery 1. The issue started on the 10th of March 2016. I've tried running a system restore to the 9th of March but this didn't help at all.Thank you in advance.

Hey all-

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that I use with a docking station. Everything has been working but occasionally when I put the laptop into the docking station and power up, the external monitor will not come on unless I open the lid of my laptop. When I close the lid of my laptop, the system goes to standby and the external monitor goes out. I went into the power options and changed the option for when the laptop is closed to "Do Nothing". I would like to be be able to keep it on Standby like it had been working originally. Any ideas why this may be occurring?
 

A:Problem with Laptop and Docking Station

standby mode is known to cause system issues (instability, currupt files, screwed up settings). I wouldn't use standby anymore if I were you.

To get your old settings back in order, run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started happening. (then you should disable standby mode so that that doesn't happen again)

also... check your display settings, there may be an option for primary monitor default when docked.

Its been over a year sonce my last issue, but it seems it has resurfaced. Previously I had solved the problem by myself, but after applying the same solution (system restore due to faulty software update), it seems the cause of the problem has changed. I'd like some assistance this time again please. My problem is that the tablet can't recognize that it is docked. As such, the keyboard, mouse, D Drive and battery are inaccessible. As like last time, it seems the dock charges properly ( as indicated by the orange LED battery light), however, when charging while docked, the LED light would cycle between white, orange, and nothing (roughly 1 second per phase). Something new to thos issue os that the dock station seems to be "doing something" when docked. There is a faint whirring and click within the dock, to the left of the  mousepad, with the click being in sync with the "nothing phase". I haven't investigated any further (I don't know how to disassemble the dock). This issue came up after "wobbling" the screen while docked maybe a little too rough. Since then there have only been two occassions where the two batteries were connected, but I haven't been able to reproduce it. This seems like a highly specific problem. Any suggestions is fine.

I have noticed a continuing problem with using our Pro Book 640 laptops and Elite Book 8460 and 8470s, when docked in docking stations and sharing keyboard, video and mouse through Belkin 2-port KVM switches.  The problem is that the keyboard and mouse will sometimes just quit responding, although the lights are on, indicating they are connected.  A number of techniques are tried to get the functionality back, including uplugging power from the KVM and plugging it back in, unplugging the keyboard and mouse from the KVM, and rebooting the laptop. Any one of these may or may not solve the issue.  My question is, has anyone else experienced similar issues when using docking stations in combination with a KVM? Thank you.TJfromVA

The PC in question is a Dell Latitude D620. When off the docking station, the screen display is normal, however when it's hot docked, or cold booted from the dock, the screen displays only 1/4 of the screen, however it shows the entire image. It's hard to put into words for me, it's displaying the entire desktop, same resolution, however the image its self is maybe 4 inches. I did fix this problem on my laptop by updating drivers, however I would have to explain this process over the phone as I am a support guy, and if it doesn't work, then I'm back to the beginning. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I the only one with the off the wall calls..

nevermind, it's fixed. the person who is using the laptop forgot to mention they adjusted the resolution, and it's a widescreen monitor, so it had the black bars.. amazing how people forget the details...

After installing the appropriate driver from the Dell  Website, I connected my Inspiron 17-778 to two external monitors. Soon thereafter I began to receive an error message and a restart. The message indicated:
KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED, which I looked up and found that it signaled a problem "when a driver tries to close static streams for USB 3.0 devices.
Is there a fix for this issue?

I got this message on my computer right before it froze and shut down:

"You have inserted a module into the docking stations modular bay, but this module is not supported by your docking station... should remove now.." Not sure how it ended, didn't write the whole thing down and then it went of the screen and everything was frozen.

Now when I turn it on it will run for a while but then freezes and after a long while shots off. If I try to turn it on soon after, it wont even start, the light just comes, it starts but then shuts down.

Its a Dell Latitude D510 and I have XP, can anyone help? That message means nothing to me, I don't know what a module, docking bay or station is and I haven't inserted anything in a long time.

I got a HP Ultraslim Docking Station 2013 along with my new Elitebook 1040 in october. Ever since, I have tried in vain to get the docking station to work. When I dock the laptop only the power button on the dock works, the usb and vga ports do not. Are there anyone else who have experienced anything similiar who have a solution?

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.

Hi,

Got a weird one.

I had an old Toshiba t900 which died recently. it was on a small network and was also connected a HP Laserjet 6P/MP postscript printer. Most printing was done via the network to this printer. the printer was actually installed as a laserjet 6L because otherwise the driver sent everything via postscript with took for ever (well graphics did) and frequently failed with a "not enough memory error"

I have replaced this with a Tecra M10 (no parallel port) and a docking station which has a parallel port.

I did install the laserjet 6P/MP postscript driver and it all worked fine (except of course for the speed and memory problems mentioned above).

I then deleted the 6P/MP device and installed the printer as a 6L (as before) but when I tried to print a test page it did not send anything to the printer and reports a device error.

Ive uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted etc but made no impact. The only thing that is slightly odd is that after deleting the devices and rebooting the sometimes reappear suggesting maybe I have not got rid of them completely

If I start from scratch (no printer visible) and install the printer (replace current driver) as a 6MP it seems to install OK (except that Under printer->Properties, the panel is blank)

But when I print a test page, nothing happens (no lights flash on the printer) and a yellow triangle appears. The print queue simply says error - printing

Any suggests as to what I need to do to get this fixe... Read more

A:Printing problem through docking station to LPT1

OK it was tedious but I got there.

Delete all printers and keep deleting and rebooting until they have all gone (there must be an easier way?)
Plug in the printer and reboot the computer so it installs OK as 6P/6MP Postscript
Check it does actually work!!

Go to devices and printers
Take the installed working 6P/6MP Postscript
Right click, Printing properties
Advanced
Select a driver from the drop down list (6MP in my case) I guess these drivers were there from previous efforts so if the right driver is not there you may have to install it and then start from the beginning

Change the share name to avoid confusion
Go to the other PC
Install a network printer
Select the one you have just renamed
Test it and Message 'Unable to access printer'!! b*g*e*!!

Probably some garbage left over from previous efforts (now deleted)so
Reboot and try again.
Now it works.:-)

And now perhaps I can get on and do something useful!!

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.
