Question about IBM (250410U) Docking Station for ThinkPad
Hi, I have an IBM ThinkPad with a docking station and it has been working beautifully. I undocked the laptop last night to use it in another location and when I re-docked it, the USB ports would no longer work. I am working around that by plugging the keyboard and scanner into the laptop directly now instead of the docking station but I would like to get the docking station back up.
Also, the printer that is connected to it will not work and that I cannot hook up directly to the laptop since it does not have a big enough slot for that cable.
I have read a bit online at other sites and it appears this is a common problem but there is no consensus on the solution.
Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
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.
