Question about Targus ACP50US Docking Station

1 Answer

When I install the driver and the computer restarts I get a blue screen that tells me a fatal error has occured and windows will not start normally. The only way to get past this screen is to restart in safe mode and uninstall the driver.

    Yes, sorry I wasn't more clear. I would like to know how to get the docking station to work so I can actually use it. I have Windows XP Professional (2002), as far as I know the driver I have is the latest. However, I did download the driver off of the website this morning and I had the same problem as I do when I load the driver off of the disk.

    It sounds like you know how to correct the blue screen issue, by uninstalling the driver. Are you asking how to install the Driver and get it to work? If so, What Operating System are you using? Do you have the most recent drivers from Targus's website? Make sure it is the correct driver 32bit or 64 bit, XP, Vista, etc.

When you install the drivers, are you installing them while the laptop is conected to the docking station? If so, try installing with docking first. Then after installation, shut down your computer. Dock the comptuer, then start the computer back up. If you get a blue screen, go into your bios and make sure that your USB setting is set to High Speed.

Please make sure that the docking station is plugged into your notebook before booting up, there is an issue that all expresscard docks share with plugging the docking station in while the notebook is powered on.
If there is a switch located on the Expresscard
On-Pre-boot support
Off-Post-boot support (Default)
This switch is used to determine how the dock is recognized in the
system at boot up stage. Certain notebooks will detect the dock and not
work properly during a pre-boot mode (ie. trying to boot up on the
external VGA device, not the internal VGA of the Notebook). This was
observed in notebooks (Fujitsu, some Sony and Toshiba models) that
use a BIOS developed by Phoenix Technologies. If you experience
such issue, please turn the switch from the default "OFF" position to
"ON". You will only need to set it once.

Thus Windows displays this message to tell you so and ask you to tell him what it must do.

Error code 0x00000002


STOP 0x2 DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY error code has a value that is 0x00000002. This is a fatal error typically known as STOP message or Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
This error generally occurs in Windows XP but may also occur in latest version of Windows such as Windows Vista or windows 7. The computer may stop responding without warning. Moreover, your computer may give error messages like STOP 0x00000002 error or related errors and if blue screen appeared then you may have to restart the system in the mean time of your work due to which unsaved work will be lost.
Cause of Error:
  • You may be using corrupted profile in your system which raised this problem
  • The device driver of your system is not updated
  • Malfunction of hardware usually is the cause of error such as STOP 0x2 DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY or similar error
  • Registry database of your system may have corrupted or modified erroneously by invalid application
  • You have installed new hardware unsystematic or installed unknown application
  • Spyware has infected the PC
  • Antivirus software is not working
  • The operating system or application might have run out of usable memory.
This is one of the serious problem in computer if it is not resolved instantly then it might create some more unexpected error. STOP 0x00000002 error and its related error will disturb you all the time and you may have to bear loss of data. When blue screen of death appear on your monitor screen then you need to restart directly whether you have saved your work or not. Therefore, you are suggested to fix STOP 0x00000002 error as earliest possible.

How to Fix:
To fix STOP 0x00000002 error you need to follow the following methods.

  • If this error occurs in your pc then you will have to restart the PC and then press F8 key before appearing Windows. You will see a black screen with white text giving many options. Select the option "Last Known Good Configuration" and press Enter. If you have configured the computer improperly then it may fix the error.
  • If you have installed any hardware in your system then the chances is more that the device driver is not updated and thus errors of type STOP are given at the time of operation. You must download latest drivers.
  • If your system does not become stable then you need to try scanning of registry with this tool. Since, registry keeps all configurations of your system if it gets impaired then you must download registry repairing softwareand repair it .
Mostly, spyware has been the reason of various errors in computer system. Spyware damages files in the computer system and if once damaged then it is no longer used and it also corrupt registry database. The file which is infected by virus may be a program file, system file etc. If STOP 0x00000002 error occur in spite of antivirus then download anti spyware to scan your computer.

Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).

W200 cause a blue screen


First of all: If you install SP2 you don't have to install SP1 over it. It already did. Secondly, don't install SP3, it destroys Windows XP.
Try reinsalling the PC with SP2, install the drivers and do nothing else, see if that helps.

If not, by all means post back here,

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
