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.

Docking station usb ports are not working -laptop is lenovo x240


Hi

If all other ports on your docking station are working then this would point to either a hardware fault on the DS or with the DS drivers on the laptop, I would also make sure you have seated the laptop on the DS correctly as this can sometimes cause some ports to appear not to be working correctly

IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

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

Added a ST95005620AS in Lenovo (2503) docking station as a second drive and it is causing a slow boot in Lenovo T60


Very strange, I added a WD 500GB in place of my CD drive in my R60 and have had no issues. I suggest the following:

1. Pull the Seagate drive from the docking station, does the laptop boot faster (confirm the added drive is really the problem).

2. Put the drive caddy back in with a drive with one of another brand other than the Seagate, see if the performance imorives (confirm its the Seagate which is the problem and not the caddy or docking station).

If performance increases in both cases, do some research on compatibility issues between the IBM and Seagate drives. I would also go to Lenovo's website and update the laptop BIOS... this can easily be accomplished by downloading a tool and doing it through Windows. I had issues with using a non-Lenovo battery with my R60 till I updated the BIOS. Good luck, let me know if you get to the bottom of this. Please rate me if this helps you. Thanks.

USB ports in docking station stopped working suddenly


I was having the same problem - the USB ports seemed to have stopped working so I could not use the mouse, keyboard, or printer, even though the monitors and power could still operate through the docking station. Finally, I just unplugged the docking station for 30 seconds, plugged it back in, and everything resumed working. I was surprised it was that simple, but it's working for the moment.

Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.

Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.

Hope this helps!
