Most likely cause over on your part would be a bad connection from the dock to you. I am not an expert on laptop docks, but try to check that all the cables are nice and secure. Also, check that there is no stray objects in the connections. If all else fails, you may have a bad dock station.

Asus vivo tab rt docking station will not fully charge only about 8%


Will the battery charge on a standard DC lead? If it still doesn't, maybe an exhausted battery.

Asusvivo tab RT mobile dock will not charge


If the docking station fails, but you can charge via the computer, then the station is defective. Check the connections and the power supply to the Doc Station. A power surge may have damaged the power adapter to the station.

sounds like the situation is with the AC adapter detection. try to restore your BIOS defaults and update BIOS if applicable. Test another AC adapter. If that fails, most likely, this is with the motherboard. You may either get a new board, or just continue to charge it using the docking station.

Ibm thinkpad t41,its processing slow what could be the problem and it has a lot of hard drive space left.


Available RAM is more important for speeding up your laptop than available hard drive space. Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

For example, my fast computer has 3600 megs of total physical memory compared to a commit charge of 1200 megs. Meanwhile, my older, slow computer has only 650 megs of total physical memory with a commit charge of 1400 megs. This means the slow computer is always making 'pretend' memory from hard drive space, and that is why it is so slow. This is most likely the case with your computer as well.

I hope that helps.

IBM ThinkPad T41 won't recognize USB 2.0 Ports (sees them as USB 1.1)


all available ports are not recognized? have you tried other known good usb devices on those ports?if other devices are recognized then it is an issue with the usb device you were first trying to hook. if not, then it may be the port issue or driver. so update chipset driver for your pc. use ibm's website to check for drivers of your pc.

Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.

Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.

Hope this helps!

T41 docking station release?...


Turn the machine off and press the eject button on the dock. If you locked it then you need to turn the key for it to come out. The eject button usually has a picture of an up arrow over a horizontal line.
