Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.
Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.
Hope this helps!

Open the device manager and check if the usb drivers are there. If not, you'll need to go to IBM's site and dowload them. If they are, then the usb port is faulty and needs replacing.

I had the exact same problem. When i undocked the laptop i had to reboot it when i put it back, in order to get the USB devices working. By updating the System Interface Driver, located here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67228.html , the USB devices now power back up when you redock the laptop without having to reboot the machine.
