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.

What is the best way to connect 2 computers to this monitor


If you have two separate computers for different purposes, such as personal and work use, you may find it convenient and necessary to connect both to a single monitor. Many monitors have dual inputs, making such a connection simple. However, you might need a keyboard, video and monitor switch to accomplish this task if the monitor lacks a second input. Dual Inputs
Step 1 Examine the back of your monitor for the presence of dual video inputs, such as a single VGA and DVI or HDMI output.
Step 2 Connect the VGA cable to one computer. Plug the other end of the cable to the matching input on the monitor. Rotate the retaining screws until tight at both ends of the cable.
Step 3 Plug the DVI or HDMI cable into the back of the second computer. Insert the other end into the monitor's digital video input. Screw down the retaining screws if you're using DVI.
Using a KVM Switch
Step 1 Ensure both computers are turned off. Place the KVM switch on your desk where it is within convenient reach.
Step 2 Locate the video output port on the back of the KVM switch. Plug a VGA cable into this port. Plug the other end of the VGA cable into the monitor.
Step 3 Plug the VGA monitor outputs from each computer into the inputs on the back of the KVM switch. Tighten the retaining screws down for each connected VGA cable on the computers and the KVM switch.
Step 4 Plug the keyboard and mouse cables into their respective outputs on the KVM switch. Plug each set of keyboard and mouse cables from their ports on each computer into the matching inputs on the KVM switch. Plug each cable in sequentially to avoid mixing them up between machines.
Step 5 Double-check that the mouse, keyboard and monitor cables leading from each computer all correspond to the right machine. Plug the KVM switch's power cord into a nearby AC outlet or power strip.
Step 6 Turn the computers and monitor on to verify the connections are correct.

Required Items

  • VGA cable
  • DVI or HDMI cable
  • KVM switch
  • Power strip (optional)

Monitor won't stay on


how is the monitor connected to the computer? what connection type is the monitor is it VGA or HDMI . What format is the computer video output is it VGA or HDMI. Also you may have two video outputs on the computer. Sometimes the motherboard vga output is disabled so that a much better video plug in card can be used which has its own video output port.

Infocus lp425z projector pushes latop display to left quarter of output image


Usually this is a hardware acceleration setting problem on the 'advanced' properties setting in your 'screen resolution' properties on your computer. Re-set the hardware acceleration to the 2nd setting and this should fix your issue. We have this regularly when we project on a double projector system and the one projector keeps shifting everything left until we adjust the hardware acceleration settings on the computer. No more issue.

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,

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Will the monitor work on another computer? Will the computer work with a different monitor? Are you connecting the vga port to vga output on the video card or the dvi input to the dvi output on the card. You may need a video card with hdmi output.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
