    I laptop screen function nornal, and the external monitor function normal. When pressing Fn and F8 I can can cycle between monitor and LCD. My question is what can I do to make the monitor screen to show image of my desktop when I boot it up by pressing the power button ( it used to be that simple). Is there any set up in the msconfig , I should look out for?

Do you have an external monitor for use when the laptop is on the docking station? If so, does your laptops screen come on when it's not docked?

If you're using an external monitor while the laptop is docked, make sure that the screen selection is for external monitors, by pressing/hold the FN key and then press the F8 key to cycle through the choices between LCD, Monitor/LCD or Monitor only.

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

I have a dell inspiron (600m) andi also have a dell flat screen television. i used to be able to connect my laptop and tv, so the tv would become a flatscreen. i would go to VGA and my laptop would appear....


I assume you would switch the TV's source to VGA. Is that correct?

Connect it the same way you did before, with the VGA cable. Then hit Fn + F8 on your keyboard, to switch the signal from your laptop screen to the VGA cable. Then select VGA as your source on your TV as you did before.

If that does not work, please post and tell us what type of television you have.

I connect my B130 to an external display using a vga cable. Both screens work. But I am unable to turn my laptop's screen off using Fn F8


the screen wont go off unless you use a docking station. Once you are docked, you can close the notebook lid and use the machine like a desktop: with all your cables hooked into the station itself.

I am not able to connect to the tv by my toshia satellite pro m200, through the av cable....


What is it you are receiving when you connected? No signal?
You may need to setup your Computer to TV mode. Or even TV you may need to setup INPUT or anyother connections that required.
For example: I have sony Monitor/LCD but also works as TV it is Plazma. Has got connection with INPUT VGA S-VIDEO. I use Svideo for video connection and I use INPUT connection to Computer where I take cable tv channels.You need to see If your computer support for TV if does, make sure if You need docking station or not. My suggestion go to toshiba page and read user guide and reqs. for TV connection. probably your are missing something.

Laptop won't dock


The inspiron 600M will not function in a D-Dock, but will work in a D-Series port Replicator. (Although the D600 and 600M share the same motherboard, the bottom plastics are different)

After trying the 600M in the D-Dock, it is possible the dock is damaged. I would undock the D630, then delete the docked profile. power off, dock, and reboot and see if it detects and works.

Ethernet in Docking Station


Some docking stations require device drivers in order for the ports to work. Try the link bellow for any drivers that are for the docking station. They're generally under utilities or applications, but could be else where. If there are no drivers, or if they don't work, then I suggest having the port checked. It could be a bad port. Also try any updated ethernet drivers for the machine, if it uses the machines integrated ethernet, then it could be the controller driver as well.
