HP xb3000 Docking Station Sound Card Drivers

I am running Vista on this machine and I guess at some point, the drivers for my docking station were cooked. Anyways, I realize that now and have been searching for the sound card drivers for it and am having no luck whatsoever. If someone could hook me up with that, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Timbo

    I am trying to feed sound from Windows Media Player through S/PDIF Coax output to my Yamaha 6140 receiver and having no success. Sounds like a driver problem to me as well. Cannot find any documentation re xb3000 outlining how spdif is enabled in device.



    HP Support now only is chat for xb3000, but website down....

SOURCE: I have an HP zv5000

At this point, you can't find any such cable, since it is outdated. The only thing I could suggest is try to disassemble the dock to remove the cable, the only problem is you would now need desk space to hold the computer...

SOURCE: I hooked my laptop up to my tv, through a docking

If you connected everything correctly EG: a 3.5mm jack to 2 X RCA plugs,into the TV. then the background noise might be because the volume is too high on the laptop. double click on the Volume control on the task bar and drop the level to half on main and wave volumes.

SOURCE: HP Elitebook 8540p is getting no video in docking station

The solution that resolved this problem On Bios version F.0E was:

  • Power up the unit off the docking station and plug it into the docking station.
  • Delete all copies of the COM1 port in the device manager.
  • Perform a restart on the docking station.
  • When you log back into windows go back into the device manager and redetect hardware.(You should now have 2 visable copies of the COM1 port. One will have a bang next to it.)
  • Delete both copies of COM1 and scan for hardware changes. (This should give you 1 good copy of the COM1.)
  • Power down the laptop, and take off the docking station.
  • Power it back up straight from the docking station and you will notice no more hangs when booting off the docking station
Enjoy...

SOURCE: My HP 2840 Printer not fully functional via USB

Are you using the same cable to connect? The 2800 series printers do not tolerate USB cables over 10 feet and I have had some that would not connect properly unless a 6 foot cable was used. If you are using the same cable then it is possible that the drivers for the docking station are not installed properly on your laptop and you might need to update them from the manufacturers website.

Docking station usb ports are not working -laptop is lenovo x240


Hi

If all other ports on your docking station are working then this would point to either a hardware fault on the DS or with the DS drivers on the laptop, I would also make sure you have seated the laptop on the DS correctly as this can sometimes cause some ports to appear not to be working correctly

Updated laptop to windows 7....need updated software for targus acp50


The Targus ACP50US Docking Station does not seem to have an updated driver for Windows 7. You can attempt to install the docking station using the driver found at this link but that may not work as it is only meant to be used for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. I'm sorry but if that driver does not work, the docking station will not work until there is a new driver for Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Drivers for Win 7?


It is likely that you are attaching the docking station with a laptop running Windows 7 OS. In this case you should visit the Kensington Europe website and download and install the latest software version of K33926 Kensington Universal Notebook Docking Station with VGA/DVI and Ethernet Software for Windows 7, Vista, and XP (5.2.22372.0) Note that this is a combo software that includes the drivers for both the video and ethernet.

The problem is definitely not with your docking station. Its the ethernet controller that is faulty. Possible reasons can be incorrect driver or device failure(not very unusual).
You said that you "have tried to install drivers from Marvell but no luck". This most likely indicates the device(ethernet controller) failure. Anyways try to download the drivers from the link below and give it one more shot.
Click here
If it still doesn't work a new ethernet controller card should do the trick. Considering the fact that you can get a good one from brands like D-link, Realtek etc., for about 25$ it shouldn't be much of a problem.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

Docking Station problem


You can try to update any system utilities drivers and docking station drivers. However, I found that with IBM and Gateway, when you remove a running machine from the docking station they tend to glitch just a bit and when you redock them they have issues. Your issue is the docking station attachments, I've also seen issues with the monitor only, mouse only and keyboard on the laptop, all not working. I've had a couple that if I used the "safely remove hardware" then they would work when removed then redocked, but not all machines give the safely remove hardware option with the docking station. If yours does, try that. If it doesn't and there are no driver updates or the updates don't work, then, unfortunately, I'm afraid you'll just have to live with restarting after every redock. One other thing you might try is, after redocking, do a hardware search. It may find the attachments. I know this is also a pain, but it may be easier than rebooting every time.

Secure Your Data With Our Online Backup Services ' DataAlign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files.
