Using IBM T34 with docking station and external monitor

Would like to be able to close laptop without it going into standby, so that I can just use an external monitor. Am using IBM docking station and flat screen monitor.
Have not been able to find control that would override the standby mode when labtop is closed.

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

Inspiron 600m,"no input signal check video cable"?


Do you have an external monitor for use when the laptop is on the docking station? If so, does your laptops screen come on when it's not docked?

If you're using an external monitor while the laptop is docked, make sure that the screen selection is for external monitors, by pressing/hold the FN key and then press the F8 key to cycle through the choices between LCD, Monitor/LCD or Monitor only.

Docking Station problem


You can try to update any system utilities drivers and docking station drivers. However, I found that with IBM and Gateway, when you remove a running machine from the docking station they tend to glitch just a bit and when you redock them they have issues. Your issue is the docking station attachments, I've also seen issues with the monitor only, mouse only and keyboard on the laptop, all not working. I've had a couple that if I used the "safely remove hardware" then they would work when removed then redocked, but not all machines give the safely remove hardware option with the docking station. If yours does, try that. If it doesn't and there are no driver updates or the updates don't work, then, unfortunately, I'm afraid you'll just have to live with restarting after every redock. One other thing you might try is, after redocking, do a hardware search. It may find the attachments. I know this is also a pain, but it may be easier than rebooting every time.

Dell FP1905FP Stopped working


First try on another computer just to see if there is any other problem then the LCD. Also check power supply to the monitor. I believe this has one that's internal, but if external, swap with a similar specs one. If internal, check to see if any popped up capacitors. Video boards are most likely ok.

Docking station trouble


You will need to dock the closed laptop first, then use the power button on the dock to turn it on. This will result in the output to the monitor. Alternatively, if you have the laptop open, you can toggle between the laptop LCD and external monitor (or both) by holding the blue Fn key (on the laptop keyboard) and pressing F5.
