Question about HP Xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base And 400gb Kit 400 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a HP Pavilion Computer and a HP xb3000 expansion base. The base doesn't seem to work anymore, including the extra USB ports or speakers. It appears that only the power supply through the base to the computer works. I have to plug all my USB plugs into the computer and unplug them to take the computer home. By the way, I have two of these bases and neither seems to work right! Can you help?

They are now obsolete.
there is no support on them now.
HP zero
no books
no schematics
nada.
they call that legacy stuff now, and everyone cringes at the thought.
why not ask HP actual
let them cringe.
the base only works on the data sheet listed PCs. (we have that)
you never said which one. you have (if you cheat this, it works 1/2 way or not at all or fails randomly, )

your laptop docking bay has quite a simple circuit, inside it is just connecting extenal base socket to connections to laptop.
All you have to do is rebuild connection using solderer and replacement cables.
Use a tester to find out what cable is not working. You put tester extremities on the two sides of the cable, if it returns infinite impadance, then contact is faulty, rebuild contact with a piece of wiring.

shows xp last supported OS back then then.2008
but?

more lots more, you can search at HP all day but
NO OS STATED BY YOU
and why you think your PC runs on this X


the last post at HP said
HP 15-r264dx does not have docking port, you have to use USB "dock" such as HP USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 docking stations.

and last here is your correct docking station (you never asked first)

KN745AA - HP Notebook QuickDock


so let me guess the real story
i found this docking station at a garage sale for $5
what does it FIT
answer, see link 2 above , PDF for the data sheet,

ever like just google ?
here is 1 hit, found the service guide. 2006(11 years old)


http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01103327.pdf




page 6 shows it dont work on your PC.
so that 2 books that said that.
if does not mention OS, but 2006 we know is XP , never run XP ever.
there are rumors of hacks that can make it work but only no details.
for sure it must be a hardware match.
then you need drivers to run it, but if your OS is not XP
finding them now is very very hard.
only google can find them and I see ZERO

as the posters said, you can move any working HDD or SSD
be it old PATA or new SATA cables, using and adaptor.
google that see 1million examples.
to any PC, and backup data.
i reading your manual online, remove the hdd, carrier.
as it tell you on page 5.7
it shows the OLD OLD PATA cable.
now most PC made have no such port now
so we buy a HDD enclosure, and it convertes, PATA to USB
and now you can plug it in to any PC mADe and use it.


#1 is old PATA, (parallel interface from dark ages of PC)#2 is power

I'm pretty well sold that the technical support at HP is completely worthless. They have some tree they look at for answers but have no actual technical ability, making them about as useful as an extra **** on your elbow
