Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I hooked my laptop up to my tv, through a docking station and I have this annoying background noise, because I hooked my computer audio to my tv. How do I get rid of that noise? I have a 46'' Sharp Aquos LCD TV, and a Compaq Series PR1005 docking station for my HP nx5000.

    Tried turning the volume down, the background noise is there, whether the sound is up, or muted. Think it's the cable?

If you connected everything correctly EG: a 3.5mm jack to 2 X RCA plugs,into the TV. then the background noise might be because the volume is too high on the laptop. double click on the Volume control on the task bar and drop the level to half on main and wave volumes.

    Possibly, how long is the cable? have you tried it without the docking station (running on batteries) if it's an earthing problem, isolating it by unplugging the adaptor might help.
    Cheers

If your TV has RCA (L/R) audio outputs, buy a 3.5 mm Male to 2-Male RCA Adapter cable to hook up your TV to the 3.5 mm AUX IN jack on your docking station.

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

No audio from docking station PA3314U-1PRP. Laptop itself (Tecra M5) outputs audio normally. All other outputs from the docking station work normally. How do I get audio to work through the docking...


Hi there,
you should try plugging from the output port of the laptop to the input port of the docking station, remember the source is coming from your laptop going to the docking station.
Now for the microphone once you have the settings right the line in jack should work properly.
Hope this helps!

How do you hook up the laptop to the docking station?


You should be able to hook up the laptop using a common audio cable, one end hooking up to the audio-in port in the docking station, and the other end hooking up to the audio port in the laptop.

Hooking up to docking station


No, the laptop will have to have a wireless adaptor on it or in it to connect. The docking station is only good when the computer is hooked into it.

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?
