When I plug in the computer to my Dell D600 laptop (using docking station) the screen shows fine but a grey box moves around the monitor saying "Input Not Supported". I am unable to use any of the buttons for menu etc. How can I get it to support?

This is a communication issue starting with your docking station. Sometimes updated drivers are neede to insure that a device works with all devices between your pc and your laptop. Check on Dells website to see if there is an updated driver. In additon you may want to run the cd that came with your monitor, they are always shipped with a cd with drivers on them!

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

Dell Latitude D600 Power button functions intermittantly. I need to know wher to get one and how to replace it.


I would suggest a couple of things first:

1. Have you tried removing the power button strip and checking that there is no obstruction underneath that might be causing the issue?
2. If you have a docking station do you get the same issue when using the docking station power button - this would help eliminate if it is a motherboard issue.

Dell do have some handy manuals on line that can help:

This shows how to remove the power button bezel:

http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1111863

This shows the small removable power button board (just to the right of the arrow labelled 1) - it is held in place by 2 small screws with the connector underneath which fits onto the motherboard.

http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/en/sm/sysboard.htm#1000461

The power button board can be found on eBay for around £5:

Hope this helps

MY D630 LAPTOP DOES NOT WORK IN DOCKING STATION


When powering on the D630 from the Docking Station, press F2 to go into Setup. Scroll down to the Docking Section, and check the Dock device info for the status. If it shows undocked, then try changing the below settings to: Hot Undock, Enabled Silent, and Universal Connect Enabled. Save these settings. Make sure you update your BIOS to A16 from http://support.dell.com under drivers and downloads section. If still not recognized after this, check the dock port on the D630 for obstructions or burn markings on the pins. try cleaning with rubbing alcohol and qtip swab. I have seen a few cases like this and ultimately the motherboard was the issue and needed to be replaced.

Try updating to BIOS to version A16 from http://support.dell.com Ensure you are not attached to the docking station when flashing the BIOS. Once updated, connect the 90W adapter to the docking station, connect your laptop to the dock, and power on using the docking station power button.

D630 docked , ext mouse & kybd not responding


If the docking station has power:

Make sure power is off for both the laptop and the docking station. Plug your keyboard and mouse into the docking station. Dock the D630 to the docking station and then power on docking station. This should then turn on your D630. Your D630 should detect the keyboard and mouse.

If the docking station has no power:

Verify that the power cord, AC adaptor, etc. is plugged in. If the items listed seem to be in order,
there may be a problem with the power going into the docking station. (AC adaptor?)

support.dell.com will have the specific details for your D630 and your docking station, et al.

Please let me know if you have success in this.

No internet when docked.. needs network controller


Assume the docking station is powered. I have seen funny behaviour with my docking station. Sure way for it all to work is, everything off, fit to docking station, turn on with power button on docking station. Ensure network cable plugged before this.

If the docking station is not charging the laptop while docked, it may simply need to be plugged in using the power cord to recharge the battery.

Docking station trouble


You will need to dock the closed laptop first, then use the power button on the dock to turn it on. This will result in the output to the monitor. Alternatively, if you have the laptop open, you can toggle between the laptop LCD and external monitor (or both) by holding the blue Fn key (on the laptop keyboard) and pressing F5.
