Question about Dell Inspiron 8100 Notebook
The 8100 physically attaches to the replicator properly [I did remove the arm] but I am concerned about the electronics and have not powered on the notebook with the notebook attached. My notebook uses the PA-6 power supply as does the 1978u.
Try to turn it on ... it should have no problem with the "electronics"
if you got message that the docking is not compatible, then you will have to flash your notebook bios to the latest 8100 BIOS.
If same case still happen after updating your BIOS, use C840 bios (which AFAIK will not harm your notebook). It will then read the docking/port replicator correctly.
Both BIOS can be found here
Give it a shot ...
