Cant remove ibm thinkpad x31 from docking station


Press the "release" button/lever, to allow the ThinkPad to be "unlocked" and released from the docking station.

Can't remove x31 from docking station


You asked this question a year ago, and did not get any help.

So, it's time to take a chain-saw to the docking-station, to "sacrifice" it,
and then purchase (on eBay?) a replacement docking-station.

2nd Hard drive not recognized


Hi,
If your using IDE hard drives i would try to put them both on the same cable on the primary IDE controller. Then set you main hard drives jumpers and the second hard drive to cable select not slave. Try to boot if the boot fails your goiong to need a Windows 98 boot floppy with FDISK. You need to start up the 98 boot disk with out CD support then when it reaches a command prompt start fdisk. ONce fdisk is up format and partition the second drive. Now it should work. :) Check that the harddrive is detected in the BIOS, it may have become disconnected, it should also be the master drive on the primary IDE. If the drive is not detected in BIOS there is little chance of it working

Thank you....

Missing Docking Station key


You will have to take the docking station apart until you can see the locking mechanism. Once you can see the mechanism, you should be able to get a screwdriver ron it and release it. Make sure that it releases, don't force it, and most of all, be patient.

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.
