Re: T41 docking station release?...

Turn the machine off and press the eject button on the dock. If you locked it then you need to turn the key for it to come out. The eject button usually has a picture of an up arrow over a horizontal line.

If the docking station fails, but you can charge via the computer, then the station is defective. Check the connections and the power supply to the Doc Station. A power surge may have damaged the power adapter to the station.

Thinkpad Dock station 2 won't charge docked laptop.

Most likely cause over on your part would be a bad connection from the dock to you. I am not an expert on laptop docks, but try to check that all the cables are nice and secure. Also, check that there is no stray objects in the connections. If all else fails, you may have a bad dock station.

Missing Docking Station key

You will have to take the docking station apart until you can see the locking mechanism. Once you can see the mechanism, you should be able to get a screwdriver ron it and release it. Make sure that it releases, don't force it, and most of all, be patient.

Open the device manager and check if the usb drivers are there. If not, you'll need to go to IBM's site and dowload them. If they are, then the usb port is faulty and needs replacing.
