Re: My D820 USB ports are not functioning properly

Try reinstalling the drivers for the USB by going to device manager.Just uninstall the usb hub drivers and restart the system.Once you restart it, it will reinstall the drivers on its own.Inacse this does not work you would have to get the ports replaced by getting the motherboard replaced

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

The power supply to my Kensington SD100 Universal Docking Station has died. Firstly, do I need it for anything? What can I replace it with?

Hi Andy,
I believe the main purpose why you are using a docking station is to have more ports available for your portable system. If this is correct, you can use any type of USB hub to extend the number of USB ports available for your portable system. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase a docking station now a days since the product has been discontinued by all manufacturers since the advent of other devices such as this USB hub I am recommending you.
I do hope this information helps.

unplug everything from the docking station, and press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. Afterwards, plug in only the power and the monitor to the docking station and dock the laptop (make sure the laptop is turned off before docking and turn on after docking). If you still have issues it could still be hardware or software at this point. If you do not have issues, plug in one thing at a time to the docking station (mouse, keyboard, ect.) and restart the laptop each time until the problem starts again. this is how you will know if a device in the DS is causing the issue. if your monitor is vga (port on back of docking station where monitor is plugged into is blue) try plugging it directly into the laptop. also try plugging in the keyboard and mouse directly into the laptop (if they are usb) and anything else you may have plugged into the DS. This will be a better way of testing your devices. If all devices work fine, i would say that it could be more of a hardware issue with your DS.

Thinkpad T20 won't recognize usb port

You can get a PCMCIA adapter with 4 USB v.2.0 slots on eBay. It requires power from the USB port on the laptop, but the pigtail connector is included. Works like a charm! Comes from China just like everything else in this country.

Usb port dont work

Usually issue might be BIOS and Chipset related
first of all ensure if your BIOS is up to date, latest released version is Flash BIOS v1.3505, If yours is below this update the BIOS
next step will be updating the Chipset (Intel Chipset driver v8.0.0.1009)

Both of the drivers are available. I am adding the direct link for your convenience. Here is the link;

Please post more if you need further assistance.

Good Luck
