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

Dell 6420 laptop not recognizing USB ports while on docking station

Hello Jackie.

2 of youre USBs are USB 3. so you need to install the right drivers for USB 3.
Also you should check youre BIOS settings, if there is an option to enable "XHCI" support so enable it. (USB 3 needs this to work ).
regards Gue.

Keyboard not working on one side of switch

the GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not function correctly with docking stations. To ensure the KVM it self is working correctly I would suggest plugging the single USB from the KVM directly into the laptop and see if you have the same keyboard problem. This will at least tell you if the KVM is working properly or not.

Why do the usb ports not recognize anything i

Did you put in the drivers for the Motherboard Chipset? There is a Northbridge and Southbridge chipset which control USB and many other functions. Does device manager give any indication as to USB being attached?

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.
