SOURCE: not working VGA function while using targus docking station

I had the same problem, but was able to just update the driver.

Go to Start --> My Computer --> Right Click --> Manage --> Device Manager --> You should see something with a USB and a question mark. Right click it and say update the driver. Then, it should, update the driver and you will get those unsuitable/not windows approved popups again. I just ignored them and went with it.

Note: I installed the Targus driver information from their website prior to doing the driver update (http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=ACP50US).

Hope that helps....Chris

It will be drivers. I had endless problems with a toshiba dynadock which took days trying to sort out. Once Toshiba released the windows 8.1 driver it worked a treat. You will need to use different drivers for each docking station.

Updated laptop to windows 7....need updated software for targus acp50


The Targus ACP50US Docking Station does not seem to have an updated driver for Windows 7. You can attempt to install the docking station using the driver found at this link but that may not work as it is only meant to be used for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. I'm sorry but if that driver does not work, the docking station will not work until there is a new driver for Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!

USB ports do not work with my XP Dell computer


Did you connect the power to the Port Replicator? The USB may be older in the Targus or the XP Dell. (1.1 older, vs 2.0 newer).

I have two docking stations for my Travelmate 8103WLMi both docking statins have lost there USB port connectivity. Is there anything that can be done so that the USB ports work again?


Try updating the drivers for the docking stations. Even in commonly used items such as docking stations which can be used without drivers, if you go to the manufacturer's web site and download drivers or management software, you will find it works better.

Otherwise, try somone else's laptop with those docking stations to make sure it's not your latop causing the problem. If it doesn't work for them either, the docking station is broken and there is really nothing you can do about that short of paying more than it's worth for someone to change out the USB component of the docking station.
