    I downloaded the driver for Windows 7 even though it was for the 51 not the 50.

    As of now my keyboard and mouse and the USB type inputs are working, however, the video, the monitor is not being recognized.

  • jonathanzimm Sep 09, 2010

    I was provided with a link to the Targus web site (which I had visited) and received the additional information that the drivers for "51" should work with the "50" docking station. I downloaded the "51" drivers and the USB ports work but the monitor does not.

  • jonathanzimm Sep 10, 2010

    I had 2 people try to help.
    1) The first said to download drivers for the "51" model from the Targus web site which I tried.
    2) The second mentioned the driver to download from the web site but basically said this product got aweful reviews and while it says universal it only works with 2 O/S and not even too well at that. To try to fight with Targus for a refund.

Here is the support site ..and if the page is not opening ..click on the download button under the product ..
I already checked the first for vista and windows& ..and inside there are 4 drivers for vita and windows 7 on both 32 and 64 ..
If you have xp ..get the one that is for xp ..My advice is to download them all and see which is the most complete ..
remember if the link goes to the product ..but not showing direct the downloads..click on the last button near the photo gallery ..Do not worry it shows that it is a 51..is from the same series..

Hi. Targus didn't anticipated that there are 64bit users for this product. Well i guess this issue is already Targus call. I suggest you make a request for refund if you are not happy with the product.

You will have to get hold of product support to see if they can provide the driver.
Here is an advertisement from Amazon.com:
http://www.amazon.com/Targus-ACP50US-Universal-Notebook-Docking/dp/tech-data/B0007LXRB6/ref=de_a_smtd
It says Universal, but only works with XP SP2 and not well, at that (pick the reviews and read).
You should raise heck and try to get your money back, if you can. This product was very low rated, and seems even if you got it running, you might be sorry, from the rants and raves of dissatisfied customers.
On page 2 of the reviews, at the top, someone mentions a driver from Taget's site, but not sure if that will help your problem.
Sorry there's no good news, but good luck.

Icannot load the driver for Targus acp50us. i am running Windows 7


Do you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7 or the 64-bit version? To identify your version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. On the line that gives the OS version, if you see x64, then you have the 64-bit OS. If you do not see these extra characters, then you have the 32-bit version.

I suspect you have the x64 version of Windows 7. Targus does not have drivers for Windows 7 x64 for the ACP50US. Targus only supports the ACP45 and the ACP51 docks under the 64-bit OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, download the driver from http://www.targus.com/us/download.aspx?regionid=&sku=acp50us&PageName=&productCategoryId= . This is the Vista (and XP) driver. You may need to use the compatibility mode to get it to work. Right click on the executable file and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, choose "Run this program in the compatibility mode". Select Vista or XP in the drop down menu. Then right click on the installer again and choose Run as Administrator.

I hope this helps and I wish that I had better news for you.

Updated laptop to windows 7....need updated software for targus acp50


The Targus ACP50US Docking Station does not seem to have an updated driver for Windows 7. You can attempt to install the docking station using the driver found at this link but that may not work as it is only meant to be used for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. I'm sorry but if that driver does not work, the docking station will not work until there is a new driver for Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!

I installed the printer and share it. It is only available to user who are on x64bit. user with 32 bit win xp cant access it and install/share it. I have tried to download and install x86 driver but...


This is the HP solution for the problem


HP LaserJet, Color LaserJet and LaserJet MFP Products - Print driver Client / Server Connections in a mixed 32-bit and 64-bit environment ISSUE: 32-bit clients are not able to connect to shared Universal Print drivers or discrete drivers on a 64-bit print server or vice-versa. These scenarios may involve Server 2003/Server 2008 64-bit print servers with Windows XP, Vista, 7 32-bit clients. It is also possible that the server editions could be 32-bit versions with 64-bit clients. SOLUTION:
  1. The administrator will need to download the 64-bit AND 32-bt version of the print driver from www.hp.com . If the server involved is a 64-bit version, the 64-bit version of the print driver will need to be installed and mapped to the printer via TCP/IP. Ensure that the print driver has been shared on the network by going to the print driver properties and enabling Share this printer within the Sharing tab. c02030528.gif

    Ensure that communication has been established and that a driver test page can be printed from the 64-bit server. Once functionality has been confirmed from the 64-bit server, proceed to the next step.

  2. Currently, 64-bit clients will be able to connect to the shared 64-bit print driver that has been installed on the 64-bit server as the architecture currently matches. However, if 32-bit clients wish to map to the shared 64-bit print driver on the 64-bit server, the 32-bit version of the same driver will need to be installed within the current 64-bit driver.
    This process can be done by navigating to the printer properties of the 64-bit driver on the 64-bit server, clicking the Sharing tab and clicking the Additional Drivers button. c02030529.gif

  3. Once the administrator clicks on the Additional Drivers button, the next screen will allow the administrator to load the 32-bit drivers by placing a checkmark in the x86 button and clicking the OK button. c02030530.gif
  4. Once the administrator clicks the OK button, a print driver window will pop-up asking for the 32-bit driver components. Again, the administrator will need to download, and extract the 32-bit version of the print driver on the 64-bit server. Once the window below comes up, the administrator will need to navigate to the 32-bit driver components and select the appropriate driver .inf file.
    For example, the UPD .inf file would be the first file in the list and be named hpcuXXXc.inf. c02030531.gif

    Once the appropriate .inf file is selected, the 32-bit driver components will be installed within the 64-bit driver on the 64-bit server. This can be verified as both x86 (32-Bit) and x64 (64-Bit) boxes will now be checked and show the status as installed by clicking the Additional Drivers button compared to the screenshot in Step 3 above.

  5. Now that 64-Bit and 32-Bit drivers have been loaded onto the 64-Bit server, 32-Bit and 64-Bit clients can now navigate to the shared print driver on the 64-Bit server, by manually navigating to the shared print driver on the 64-Bit server from the client machine. Typically the path is \\servername\sharedprintername.

  6. Once the client maps to the shared print driver, printing should work successfully.

    For problems or errors that continue to occur after completing the aforementioned process, ensure that the latest version of the print drivers are being used www.hp.com . If there are problems with older discrete drivers, it is recommended to use the latest version of the Universal Print Driver which can be found at www.hp.com/go/upd .

The issue is many Windows 7 installs are 64 bit, and your software does not work on 64 bit installs. Your drivers lists as 32 bit install even. As this is going to be an issue for many people, is there any...


If you have tried installing the printer driver for 32-bit on your computer, you might want to uninstall it first before installing the Lexmark X6650 driver for 64-bit. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark X6600 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Reboot pc when prompted.
You can download the Lexmark X6650 driver for Windows 64-bit from the Lexmark website. Go to this link: Lexmark X6650 Driver for 64-bit. This driver applies to Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows Vista (64-bit), Windows XP Professional (64-bit).

Not working VGA function while using targus docking station


I had the same problem, but was able to just update the driver.

Go to Start --> My Computer --> Right Click --> Manage --> Device Manager --> You should see something with a USB and a question mark. Right click it and say update the driver. Then, it should, update the driver and you will get those unsuitable/not windows approved popups again. I just ignored them and went with it.

Note: I installed the Targus driver information from their website prior to doing the driver update (http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=ACP50US).

Hope that helps....Chris
