Re: sony vaio r505jl docking station

I googled this and found that both the notebook itself and the docking station have ethernet connections, the docking station ethernet connection seems to be between the usb and monitor connection, The notebook itself has a ethernet connection on the right side of the notebook near the back under a rubber cover. Let me know if that was correct or not.

Port replicator/docking station

I have a docking station for sale for this exact machine - reason for sale is that the machine has developed an intermittent fault so I have replaced it. It is a great docker with 3 USB, 1 printer, 1 monitor,1 network and DC in (takes computer power in). It got me up and running in home office very fast. The model number written on the back is VGP-PRT1. It is about 11 inches in length by 4 inches widt and at max 1 inch in height

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.

Dell latitude won't start

It is possible that the motheboard has gone bad.  The power brick could also have developed a short in the cable.  I would first see if you could use a different porwe cable and try that.  If that doesn't work, then i would suggest changing the motherboard if possible.

I still cannot turn on my laptop...

maybe..maybe not..docking stations are not always the answer, if it's further down the line on the motherboard.

No ethernet with docking station

It could be the connector on the bottom of your laptop that's creating the problem. Does any other ports work on the docking station when docked?
