How to use a port replicator with a HP Omnibook XE3L

I have looked on the base of my laptop but where I think it connects to the compatible type of port replicator there is a cover over the hole. Does anyone know how this is opened and whether there is a connection underneath, or does the cover mean that there is no connector in there? Thanks

If you read the manual for the docking station / base or laptop it should explain how it works in there with images.

If the bit of plastic does not come off and is on hinges then I would assume you just push the laptop down and the cover would lift.

If you can remove it then it will explain to do so in the manual.

Don't forcibly remove it though. If you have any doubts then contact HP and let them know what make and model laptop you have and which docking station you have and they should be able to assist you further.

Look 64 mb you can buy an 2gb for the price of 64mb how old is this topic??????...


There are actually a few things you can do for a dinosaur laptop (other than waiting for the asteroid to appear in the sky). Here are my top three suggestions:

  1. Squeeze in as much RAM as possible. If you have a spare SIMM slot, put in the largest-capacity module you can find. You may have to throw away what's already in there--likely a 16MB module--and replace it with a 32MB or 64MB one. Memory was so expensive five years ago that vendors often skimped on it, but now that prices have plummeted, you should pack in as much as possible. (You may also look around for a chip doubler--a SIMM two-for that lets you put a pair of chips where there's only room for a single.)

  2. Get a huge, honking hard drive. You should be able to dig up a compatible 10GB or 20GB drive. What's great is that it'll run at 4,200rpm (compared to the 3,600rpm drive you currently have), which will result in better performance. Save all your precious data, swap the old drive out for the new, and fire it up (crossing your fingers that the OS sees the new drive). Take note: You'll have to preload an operating system onto the new drive or load it on the fly.

  3. Accelerate. You'll want to configure Windows to run your hard disk and graphics card at their maximum speeds.
  • Hard drive: Go to the device manager, select the drive letter, and pick the Settings tab. Check DMA for best performance. For Windows 2000, go into the hard drive's properties, open Disk Properties, and check Write Cache Enabled.

  • Graphics card: On your desktop, right-click and select Properties. Select the Advanced tab, then click the Performance tab. Push the slider all the way to the right.

Where is the model number on an Xe3 omnibook laptop/notebook?


Wow that's an old notebook. Normally if you look on the bottom of the laptop it will give you the model number. But all you need for yours is the fact that it is an Xe3 Omnibook.

It has 2 memory slots and will only hold a maxium of 1 GB of memory which is 512mb in each slot.

Here is where I got that info below.

Can a Dell Dimension 3000 connect to 5.1 surround sound


If your Laptop has a "Latitude C/Port Advanced Port Replicator" Then this Port Replicator connects Dell Latitude notebooks to peripheral devices such as a monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse. To accomplish this, connect your peripheral devices to the Dell port replicator itself, and leave them connected to it. Then connect your notebook to the port replicator to access the devices without having to attach them individually each time you want to use them. You can also set up speakers on the Dell Latitude C/Port port replicator to provide improved quality audio.

Follow following steps:
1) Place your Dell Latitude notebook in your C/Port Advanced Port Replicator and turn on the notebook using the power button.
  • 2) Place the speakers you want to connect to the port replicator on either side of the port replicator according to the Left and Right (L and R) labels on the speakers.

  • 3) Plug the audio line connector from the speakers into the audio line out plug on the port replicator. The audio line out plus is on the right-hand side of the port replicator base next to the infrared port, directly opposite the notebook ejection lever.

  • 4) Plug the power cable from the speakers into a power outlet if needed. Battery-powered speakers will not require this. Turn on the speakers following the manufacturer's instructions.

  • 5) Open your preferred music or audio software (such as Windows Media Player or iTunes) on your Dell Latitude notebook and play an audio file to hear the newly-attached speakers.

    Hello

    Depending on your operating system and what you'e doing with it, this could normal. If you're using the wireless network with XP then the icon on the task bar will have a red X through it and it will say that the network cable is unplugged. This is normal. I hope this helps, if not email me.

    Power jack connection broken on HP Omnibook xe3


    I bought a docking station (port replicator) off ebay, and it has worked great. I had a look at the motherboard, and the docking station uses a different connection for power than the damaged AC port. So in summary, yes a docking port should solve your problem.

    If you can get a docking station for it you may be able to solve it that way.
