Friend,
You can use an external CD/DVD drive to install Win 2000.

You will need the optional MultiMedia Port Replicator with SelectBay slot (external CD drive) or any newer external USB optical drive to reinstall Win 2000 on your Toshiba Portege 3490CT laptop. Click on the link below to view:

How to install USB3.0 eSATA 2.5"/3.5" horizonatal mobile HDD Docking station?


Hi

Once you have the drive installed in the docking station you will need to install the drivers on the host PC, if your drive is not showing up in my computer, then either the drive is faulty, the docking station is faulty or the drivers have not installed correctly.

1 listen to the drive can you hear clicking noises from the drive, or is there any activity at all from the drive if not then the drive is either not sat in the holder correctly so is not getting power. or if it seated ok then the drive has gone faulty.

2. If the Docking Station is faulty return it and get it replaced

3 Remove and reinstall the drivers.

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

When I install the driver and the computer restarts I get a blue screen that tells me a fatal error has occured and windows will not start normally. The only way to get past this screen is to restart in...


When you install the drivers, are you installing them while the laptop is conected to the docking station? If so, try installing with docking first. Then after installation, shut down your computer. Dock the comptuer, then start the computer back up. If you get a blue screen, go into your bios and make sure that your USB setting is set to High Speed.

Please make sure that the docking station is plugged into your notebook before booting up, there is an issue that all expresscard docks share with plugging the docking station in while the notebook is powered on.
If there is a switch located on the Expresscard
On-Pre-boot support
Off-Post-boot support (Default)
This switch is used to determine how the dock is recognized in the
system at boot up stage. Certain notebooks will detect the dock and not
work properly during a pre-boot mode (ie. trying to boot up on the
external VGA device, not the internal VGA of the Notebook). This was
observed in notebooks (Fujitsu, some Sony and Toshiba models) that
use a BIOS developed by Phoenix Technologies. If you experience
such issue, please turn the switch from the default "OFF" position to
"ON". You will only need to set it once.

Fix video?


Hi,

If your video was working fine before then it might be a corrupted file driver of your docking station. No need to worry with your computer because it is not your computer causes the problem. It is your docking station.

You may try reinstalling your docking station software using the cd that came with it.You need to connect your system to your docking station when reinstalling the software. if the issue persist after installing the software. Please check if your docking station still in warranty and check their part replacement policy.

Keep me posted.

thanks.

Can't figure out where the USB cord goes on my Canon PowerShot SD30


You should have a white docking station that the USB cord connects to. You can also install a memory card and remove the card and place it in a memory card reader if you do not have the docking station.
Part Number for the Docking station is: (CS-DC1)
If you do not have the docking station, I would try to contact Canon to see if it is available or check the auction sites.
