SOURCE: PC input to Sony Bravia - from Sony Vaio Laptop - unsupported sig

Hi Julie,
There are a couple ways to go here. I'll give you the procedures step by step. If you want clarification on anything, just ask. If I make an assumption that is wrong, stop me and let me know. The more you know, the easier this will be for both of us.

First I'd like to double check on MisterSony's diagnosis. Refresh rates that are too high end up as a black screen on many LCD models.

This is my first assumption, the display settings are currently for both monitors. Your original screen is still functioning.

If so,

  • Right click on your desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click the Settings Tab
  • Click the Advanced button
  • Click the Adapter Tab
  • On the lower part of that tab, there should be Refresh Rate. If it is not at 60 Hz, try to change it to 60 Hz.
  • Click OK
  • Click Apply
  • A pop up may appear asking if you want to keep the changes. Accept the changes.
Get back to me with the results. If it was already set at 60Hz. We go to the next step.
Mike

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

No audio from docking station PA3314U-1PRP. Laptop itself (Tecra M5) outputs audio normally. All other outputs from the docking station work normally. How do I get audio to work through the docking...


Hi there,
you should try plugging from the output port of the laptop to the input port of the docking station, remember the source is coming from your laptop going to the docking station.
Now for the microphone once you have the settings right the line in jack should work properly.
Hope this helps!

Docking station


typically if it's a complete docking station, it uses your laptop power supply and provides power to your laptop and itself at the same time.

I hooked my laptop up to my tv, through a docking station and I have this annoying background noise, because I hooked my computer audio to my tv. How do I get rid of that noise? I have a 46'' Sharp Aquos...


If you connected everything correctly EG: a 3.5mm jack to 2 X RCA plugs,into the TV. then the background noise might be because the volume is too high on the laptop. double click on the Volume control on the task bar and drop the level to half on main and wave volumes.

Dock station for hp pavilion


You need to check the plug that plugs into the laptop to determine that you don't have a faulty lead or plug. Test it with a multimeter and wriggle the plug to see if the voltage reading remains steady. If it doesn't then it could be the lead and this is easily repaired.
You may be able to borrow an adapter to test your laptop's connector.
If you determine the fault is with the laptop then problem is most likely the connector socket on the laptop, it most likely need re-soldering onto the motherboard, or needs to be replaced. This requires the laptop to be dismantled completely.

A docking station would solve your problem because the docking station has its own power connector and you plug the existing power adapter into the docking station.
My HP is connected to a docking station, the other advantage is that the docking station has several more ports than the laptop which is useful.

D630 docked , ext mouse & kybd not responding


If the docking station has power:

Make sure power is off for both the laptop and the docking station. Plug your keyboard and mouse into the docking station. Dock the D630 to the docking station and then power on docking station. This should then turn on your D630. Your D630 should detect the keyboard and mouse.

If the docking station has no power:

Verify that the power cord, AC adaptor, etc. is plugged in. If the items listed seem to be in order,
there may be a problem with the power going into the docking station. (AC adaptor?)

support.dell.com will have the specific details for your D630 and your docking station, et al.

Please let me know if you have success in this.

T-60 will not seat properly in 2504 docking station.


I have the same docking station and I am typing this on my T60 right now. I have noticed that sometimes it is very hard to dock my laptop and other times it just slides on instantly. This seems to be an issue with poor design. If you look a the dock connector under you laptop you will notice there is a strip of plastic in the middle of two rows of connectors. The docking station connector must be perfectly aligned to successfully connect. I would inspect it for any damages, but honestly I think it is just an issue of patients, precision and a little bit of luck. If you can not identify any damage I would just slowly try to line it up and keep trying until it clicks. Remember to never force it and once it lines up it will slide in with very little force.

No ethernet with docking station


It could be the connector on the bottom of your laptop that's creating the problem. Does any other ports work on the docking station when docked?
