Question about Toshiba Dynadock Port Replicator, Docking Station
I have had nothing but problems with this seemingly cool docking station. I'm running vista home premium on a new Tosiba satellite L305. Been trying to get this to work for 2 weeks.
1) Originally explained to toshiba I could not view the external monitor. they weren't willing to help and suggested I take it to an "authorized toshiba technician" they recommended.
Technician concluded the "F5" key (which I understand you are supposed to use to set up the 2nd monitor) does not work properly w/vista and the dynadock.
He showed me how to right click "display settings" and fiddle around a bit and it should work. I watched him do it at the center but when I got home all I get now is a light blue screen (not the dreaded "blue screen") when plugging in the usb port to connect to the dynadock and can't do anything.
Any ideas much appreciated.
Windows Vista supports mirror mode only; XP supports extended mode and mirror mode. Visit dynadock.com for updated Windows XP and Vista software driver support.

This is wrong. You can use extended mode in vista.

Try to plug in the speaker jack to Headphone jack on you laptop not to your docking station. So the desktop speaker is treated as an external average speaker. GoodLuck!

You are right, it should not...Check your device manager and see if there is any problem listed there (the little yellow exclamation mark) against the Dynadock. Also check on Windows site if your device is listed as compatible with Win 8 ... Just some ideas, hard to tell just by description.
