Question about HP xb3000 (417329-001) Docking Station

4 Answers

I am unable to connect my vga and component video outputs

I am trying to connect my docking station to a monitor on my desk through the vga output on the rear of the docking station at the same time I am trying to connect a flat screen LCD monitor on my wall to the component video outputs on the rear of my docking station. It seems to only allow one or the other. If I plug into the vga, the component signal is lost. Documentation on the HP xb3000 does not state anything about not being able to connect multiple sources at one time.

    When desk monitor is plugged into xb3000 docking staion through vga output, laptop screen stays on and if you check display settings in control panel it shows desk monitor as number one monitor also. If it is normal that the HP xb3000 only puts out a video signal over either VGA or Component video, but not both at the same time, then why also with Component video connected I only receive video to my Flat screen LCD without video on my laptop screen.

    VGA Splitter cable should do the trick. Your graphic driver software should be able to handle the display properties

    after reading some more random product pages it seems that a 'splitter'
    may be right in theory, but 'multiplier' may be more accurate in terms
    of keeping the two signals at full strength. You should be able to find
    them locally, whatever you decide to go with. Just thought I'd mention
    the discrepancy

    A VGA splitter cable will just give the same picture on both monitors. What TJH needs is a USB to VGA adapter (assuming the laptop has VGA) to provide a separate output for the second external monitor.

    Laptop VGA port - display 2

    USB VGA port - display 3

    You also may (depending on manufacturer) be able to buy a docking
    station for your laptop that accepts PCI cards. Then, you can just buy
    a PCI video adapter. This is what I currently do. My dock has its own
    video out from the laptop, and it also has a card with two more ports
    for a total of three displays, all external. This works pretty well

    Another option, if you have a spare computer is MaxiVista, software that allows you to use one computer's monitors as extras for another.

Signal Out Put source has priorities about connection and VGA output is No-1 and component out is No-2 and only one out will function at a time.
HP XB3000 does not state that because it is normal, if it has multi-output capability they would have said it with headings.

    also needed to clone picture from computer to external lcd it depends what computer u use

  • Teet Bergmann Feb 02, 2009

    On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two
    video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second
    monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple
    monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary
    display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD
    display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor that is
    attached to the first video out port. Once you attach the second
    monitor and turn on your computer, use the Display tool in Control
    Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple
    monitors. You can use Dualview with docked or undocked portable
    computers.

On many laptops, like your HP you can only swap from LCD to external monitor.

Try using the display properties box, but I do not think there is a way to use both display at same time.

Hi there,
you should try plugging from the output port of the laptop to the input port of the docking station, remember the source is coming from your laptop going to the docking station.
Now for the microphone once you have the settings right the line in jack should work properly.
Hope this helps!

Just purchased a , HP xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base cant get the component output to work with my TV, how can I get it to work to expand my monitor? thanks


Hi orlandobusa1,

If assuming your connection is via VGA cable, because that's the only way I can see for you to get external video, connection should be a VGA cable from the docking station to the TV. Once you have cables plugged in, all you need to do is to set external display from your video card control panel.

Most computers have a video card control panel, please follow instructions below for the settings:

1. Right click on your desktop and choose graphics control panel
2. Once windows is open, look for multiple display settings, and there you will see if the TV is detected or not
3. then you should see a setting there, to either, extended or clone your display.

Solution provided are basic for setting up external display, however, my solution would not be applicable if the cables or ports used are different.

Hope this works!

Thank you for using Fixya,

Network and video ports not working


Problem with the motherboard, it wouldn't affect those ports on the motherboard when its docked because your using the ports on the docking station instead of the motherboard. You could always go into the BIOS and reset them to defaults just to make sure but honestly it sounds like an issue with the motherboard.
