Answer:X270 Bitlocker requests recovery key every time

Not much help here, but we are having the same issues as yourself, corporate Image using Windows 10 everyboot will prompt for a BitLocker key, working fine for all other models just the X270 / T470 I suspect something in the BIOS is causing this, but not sure what exactly. Regards Stewart

Hi I am having issue with bootup up laptop attached to docking station with lid closed and external monitor connected with dock. If i open up the laptop lid and enter the login password then i see display on external monitor. After that even i close the lid i still able to see display on external monitor and work fine. But if i restart the computer with lid closed i again dont see any thing on external diaplay until I open up the lid and enter login password. If any body else experienced same problem, Please help ? thanks. 

Answer:Bootup Laptop with Docking Station with Lid closed with external monitor attached to docking station

First step: Leave your laptop turned off and dock your laptop with the lid closed. Once docked, then power on from the power button on the docking station. If that doesn't do it, then right-click your desktop, choose properties to display the Display Settings. Click on the settings tab and select dual monitor from the drop down radio button. Check the extend my monitor ... or something of that sort.Then go back and repeat the first step.

Having an issue with all Dell 7510's and associated docks we've deployed to new users at my employer. The external keyboard won't work at the Bitlocker prompt. These PC's are imaged for Win10.
I've sifted through the BIOS settings and have had no luck getting it to work. One thread I found said to make sure the Post Behavior -> Fast Boot setting is set to Thorough. Verified that is the case.
Note: if I undock and dock the PC the external keyboard will work that 1st time at the bitlocker prompt, but at next reboot it doesn't work.

Hello, I have a T61P and have to decide by tomorrow if I want to order a X1 or pick a different model.  I was wondering if I can use my existing T61P docking station with the new X1. Would anybody know?

Answer:Lenovo X1 Docking Station?

My information is that the X1 is going to be officially announced / launched on the 19th of this month, (at least hear in Germany), so I guess you're a little early.
 
That said; as the current docks are all "series 3" I would bet that the X1, (if at all dockable), is compatible with those rather than older versions. Sorry, but I have to say the X1 will not be compatible with your current dock.
 
Hope you can follow my logic.

Hey, I was wondering if there is an option for a docking station for this laptop. I can't seem to find one and I am curious. It would make my life way more convenient. I would greatly appreciate any help or any ideas. I'm planning on using my external monitor with my gaming keyboard/mouse and play using the hardware in my laptop but having it off to the side. Thanks in advance!

Answer:Lenovo Y50-70 Docking station

Lenovo doesn't make a docking station for the Y50, they do make some for the ThinkPads. You can find some off of Amazon, or other sellers. Here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/Liztek-Universal-Docking-Station-Ultrabook/dp/B00R5A293E/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UT...

I recently purchased a new T510 with a type 4336 dock.  How do I configure the PC to recognize the dock?  I tried creating a "docked" profile, but I still can't use the dock unless the laptop screen is up.  If the screen is closed, the dock power switch will not turn the PC on.When the laptop is on the dock with the screen up, the auxilliary keyboard and mouse will work, as will the monitor.  If I close the lid, everything shuts down.Help?

Answer:Lenovo T510 and docking station

usually closing the screen shouldn't affect the dock's function. Maybe you should try to update the bios.
 
Also, if you are in BIOS menu, and connect the dock to external LCD, and close the internal lcd, does the external lcd show the bios menu?

Hi all, I purchased a HP universal docking station for my Lenovo Y50 to enable dual monitors and charging in one product. However for some reason the laptop doesnt seem to be charging correctly when it is plugged in to the dock. It does seem to charge (charge light on) when the laptop is shut down but not when the laptop is powered on.The dock is an HP E6D70AA and has the right tip adaptor for the Lenovo, I have also tested it in an Acer laptop and that charges fine. According to the specs the dock is 120w and an output of 19.5v, is that not sufficient or is there something I am missing? ThanksMark

Hi all. First  of all > to one of the admins: please move the thread to an appropriate section of the forum if this is the wrong one. I'm posting here because I use a T61p. And now the question: I intend to pair the T61p & Docking Station with a PCI-e video card exceeding the 50W maximum absorbed power specified for the 2503 Dock. My idea would be an XFX 667X ZAF3, which is a 1-slot, no additional power plug needed video card; however, in its specs, it's supposed to draw about 66W of juice ... and I'm not sure if the power supply of the Dock would be able to ... deliver. I have no previous experience with the 2503 Dock (in fact I shall touch mine next week ...). I used the mini-dock before but it does not help in this situation. Any piece of advice is welcome ...Best regards,

I have a W541 Thinkpad supplied by my employer and have had it for less than a year. Since day 1 i've been having issues with the docking station and I am finally fed up to the point of reaching out. Here are the following issues i have had. on occasion when docking and the laptop is on, it will power off (hard)when redocking and power is on my secondary monitory will have random pixels "sparkle" white on the screen and then about every 5 minutes the secondary display will shut off for about 10 seconds. Only putting the laptop to sleep and back will fix it.when docking (and regardless if power is off or on) one of either the laptops main display or my secondary monitor will not work. Sometimes redocking about 20 times will bring it back, sometimes not. Sometimes restarting the machine will work, and sometimes it will not.when docked, i have a MS wireless keyboard and mouse plugged into the dock. on occassion, they will loose connection with the computer. Unplugging the dongle and plugging it back in will resume operation but it will eventually cut out again. Only moving the dongle to a usb port on the laptop itself will resolve the issue. This is not a good solution as the dongle is not low profile.I recieved this laptop with windows 7 and have since upgraded to windows 10. These issues were happening on both versions of windows.

Answer:Lenovo Docking Station Problems (W series)

Your employer is going to let you return their supplied laptop for a refund or replacement from another brand for a unit that I am guessing you have used for more than half a year? o.0 On topic, Do you have any issues with the laptop itself when it is undocked?  From the sounds of it all problems appear to be docking related, so assuming the dock connector/port is free of all detrius that might cause issues, would suggest using the warranty to replace the dock as that certainly sounds to be the focal point of all your issues.

I believe it should work.Just as the esata port works on the old dock when the X220 has no esata capability, the USB 3.0 port should be supported by an internal chipset in the dock and should work as long as you have the setting of enabling ultrabay in the BIOS.

Hello, I have a lenovo t500 that i absolutely love. For me its the right combination of new performance and old features.  Anyway I am using my laptop to tune my vehicle and i need a serial port. Either the 2503 or the 2504 docking station will give me that feature. I am interested in the 2503 docking station for the pcie slot. I was wondering if these docking stations need to be plugged in in order to use the serial port? The 2503 looks pretty beefy and with its own fan i am concerned it needs to be plugged into a power supply in order to use it. The 2504 is a lot slimmer and i am hopping i can dock my laptop into it and use the added ports without having the docking station plugged in. So can i plug my laptop into either of these docks and use it off the laptops battery. Also i see on ebay people have some docks cheaper but they are missing the key. What is the point of the key? is it so someone cant seperate the docking station and the laptop. If the key is missing can i still use the docking station? Thanks

I have a user with a Thinkpad T460 (20FN003FUS) and a LenovoThinkpad Ultra Dock. We are using two external monitors: one going out from the VGA port of the docking station and one going out from the DisplayPort port and going through a DisplayPort - VGA adapter. The system worked fine at first. I had three displays: 1 being the laptop display and 2 and 3 being the dual monitors.The problem we're having is that when she undocks and redocks the laptop, both external monitors show in ScreenResolution as "Disconnected." If I change the multiple displays setting to "extend" I get an error message.If I undock the laptop, reboot it and then redock it, I can extend the displays, but it will stop working after the nextundock-redock cycle.I noticed the Lenovo has it's own multiple dispay management application. Should I be using that instead of Windows own native application?Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I am starting a new job where I will b working from home. Before my orientation, I purchased two monitors for my home office. I am currently at my orientation for this week and was just provided my work laptop (ThinkPad T460). My question is: what docking station or stations are available for me to purchase where I can plug my two monitors into the station and be able to use both the monitors AND laptop at the same time. I am not the most techy person, so you may have to dumb down your responses. I've read several reviews on Lenovo docking stations and some people are saying their monitors will only work with the laptop shut or if the laptop is open then only one of the monitors will work.

I have tried all possible positions at the the power mangement system and with and without the lid close, but  no matter what,  it does not affect the problem. Can someone possibly guide me towards a potential solution? thanks

Hello, I currently aquired a Lenovo Docking Station for my T510. My problem is that none of the USB ports seem to be working. In device manager, USB Root Hub appears, but when I plug in a device, for example a keyboard, I get a message that the USB device was not recognized. However, if I plug the keyboard into the laptop directly, it works fine. I know that this has been discussed on this forum befor and I have browsed many threads about it, but have not found a solution to the problem. I have tried restarting my laptop on and off the dock, unplugging and replugging the dock, Disabling and Enabling the USB Root Hub, and my BIOS is up to date (V1.52). I have found most threads to have trouble with the USB3.0 ports, however all 6 ports on my dock are USB2.0. However, I did see that the USB2.0 ports may need a driver that is available in a download for USB3.0 ports? I was unsure about that solution. Let me know if any more information would be helpfull. Thank you for your time and help.

I have a Lenovo L440 laptop with a think pad pro dock. The HDD is encrypted with TrueCrypt and needs a password before windows will boot. The laptop will not display out to the monitor attached to the dock before windows loads. I have changed the bios setting Config > Display > Boot Display Device, as well as all the other display options, but it does not make a difference. I have tried with a VGA cable and a DVI cable and neither works. I have tried with 2 different L440s and 2 docking stations with the same problem occuring on both. I have successfully used a Lenovo L540 laptop with the same model of docking station. I have also updated to the most current bios version. I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if the L440 model simply does not support this function? The Lenovo phone support was not able to help.

Answer:Lenovo L440 will not display to docking station's monitor during bios

L440 and L540 should use same bios firmware setup. Does your L440 use Nvidia Optimus, while the L540 uses integrated GPU?

H Guys, I found it extremely frustrating that I couldn't find this information on Lenovo's website. Battery options for the X230T (tablet version) are different to the X230 (non-tablet version). The battery is a different shape for the tablet version and a totally different battery. In addition, I did not realiase that I can NOT use my existing Series 3 4337 Docking Station with my new tablet. This information is for the Lenovo X230T Tablet Version: Battery Options: 3 Cell Flat Battery (Part No. 0A36316)The Lenovo T230T has the option of a snug fitted 3 cell battery. This battery seems better for if you will use the tablet in portrait mode as the larger battery will sit pround of the bottom and side (see below). However, this battery does not provide anywhere near as much life as the 6 cell battery. 6 Cell 67+ Battery (Part No. 0A36317)OK, this appears to be the one they are raving about, that can give you up to 9 hours of use.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad P50 with ThinkPad Workstation Dock. It is now paired with a old monitor and I wan't to invest in a good monitor.  I use it for different task at work, including regular office (word, excel ...), web browsing, digital drawing, photo editing, video editing (both HD and  4K 3840 x 2160) and viewing VR models in Sketchfab.  I'm looking at ThinkVision monitors and I wonder if whether HD, UHD or 4K is the right choice, I would be happy to get recommendations? Is it capable of 4K? If I buy two monitors, do they have to be similar regarding definition and aspect ratio? Specifications:Lenovo Thinkpad P50 Windows 10Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz32GB RAM64-bitIntel(R) HD Graphics P530 Regards,Ron

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad P50 - recommendation for monitor (docking station with monitors)

There is no right choice for everyone.  I will say that right now, I am using a ThinkVision X1 (4k) and it looks really good to me.  I really like the sharp text.  The speakers aren't great, which is common for thin monitors.  The viewing angles are good.  I removed the stand and am using a VESA-mounted stand, which I like.

When I boot my Thinkpad T430S I get an error message from "Lenovo Settings Power" saying "ocking Station AC Power Problem: AC power is detached from your docking station. For proper battery charging and docking station operation, connect the AC Adapter for the docking station". I do not have a docking staion and the machine is new. Also, I notice that the little indicator on the battery icon in the notification area isn't coming on when I plug in the AC adapter but the batter is being charged. I have also noticed that the power setting is Windows isn't working like they should and the machine is put to sleep even when I tell it that it should never be. What could be wrong?

Hi, I've got a new W550s as a desktop replacement in the office. But I cannot use the main feature of a laptop - mobility.Every other time I unplug my laptop from the docking station (which is thinkPad Pro dock) I'm getting a Blue Screen of Death. I'm on Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7601core i7-5600Ubios: LENOVO N11ET34W (1.10), 08/20/15 The issue is not consistent. I've seen BSoD three times out of probably 8-10 cases when I was unplugging from the dock. We had a power shortage in the office once. For the first 3 seconds I was happy I've got a laptop but then it blue-screened . So my guess is that I'm getting the issue when I switch from being powered by dock to battery power. Could that be related to massive battery recall? W550s is not a part of the recall though.Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo W550s blue screen of death when unplugging from docking station

What is the stop code of the BSOD and is it writing a dump file to C:\Windows\Minidump? If it is writing a .dmp file(s) then try uplaoding one to OSR's Instant Online Crash Analysis page and post the results. OSR's Instant Online Crash Analysishttp://www.osronline.com/page.cfm?name=Analyze If it is not creating a .dmp, go to:   Control Panel ? System and Security ? System ? Advanced System Settings (on the left panel) ? Settings in Startup and Recovery section and verify that it is configured to crerate a small memory dump. Good Luck

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.
Problem also reported in launchpad with lot's of debug info, here:

Welcome to the forum!
 
Even if it were physically possible, you wouldn't be able to use both Ethernet ports at the same time, because the motherboard doesn't support more than one connection at the time.

Hi there, I am running a T500 Think Pad Notebook (one year old) with Windows 7. As I am working from home and from my office I have two identical setups with an Advanced Mini Dock Station (2504). I am connecting three monitors to the docknig station - two by using an external Matrox Graphic Card (connected to the DVI of the Docking Station) and one directly plugged to the VGA of the Docking Station. On top of that I have USB keyboad, USB mouse and LAN connected to the Docking Station. Everything worked fine, even after I switched from XP to WIN 7 (some three months ago). But I am encoutering a problem with the docking station in my office for the last four weeks or so. Randomly, but occuring more and more often, the ThinkPad does not recognize the docking station in the office = the system boots up perfectly well, but I can not use the keyboard, mouse or the two monitors attached throught the Matrox Graphic Card. The LAN does not work either. The third external monitor works though (the one plugges to the VGA). The power works as well = the Think Pad battery gets loaded on the Docking Station, but the attached periphery does not work. I can still use the touchpad and the notebook works fine. When this problem first occured it was enough to just reboot the notebook. in the meantime IF this happen (about every third day in the office) I have to reboot something like 10 - 30 times.

Answer:Lenovo T530 - Ultra HD monitor / Multiple Monitor Support / Docking Station

3 days went and no answer :/ I know send a second email, i tried 2 times to talk on lenovo chat support (everytime i was given email where i should write), once i was told that tech support will look into it 2 days passed nothing changed :/ I have been looking on the forum but I have not found a topic which would have discussing this issue. Think about how many T530, W530, T430, T430S, T430U and docking stations were sold. How many customers would like to buy 4k monitor for reasonable price 799$ if you care about resolution, not about high quallity IPS panel which monitors like that costs 2000-3000 euros. I mean there will be so many customers intersted in this and ofcourse huge companies.Think about how many customers will contact Lenovo or companies who does sell Lenovo and there is not relevant information yet. How much time and costs would be saved  I was told buy it and test it, I said okay, I buy it, it will not work and I would have products for 2000 euros which does not work togehter, one is new (monitor) which I could not return, because many sellers do not take returns. Then there will be a pissed of customer :/  Try to think about docking station there was written maximum of 2 displays in resolution 2560 x 1600, but the docking station was released in 2011 or 2012?

Hello and good afternoon, I have a issue where a manager started the Bitlocker process on the SD card in his Surface Pro 3

with Windows 8.1. The Bitlocker attempt failed at 3.4% completed but the SD card ended up being Bitlocked without providing the Bitlocker Recovery Key (I've never seen this happen before). He doesn't know the password for the SD card and of course
I've been tasked to somehow release the encryption so that he can get the required information off of the SD card. 



Is there anything that can be done to release the encryption on the SD card or has the SD card been made non-accessible moving forward?

I have a Lenovo thinkpad t400 and I would like to have a set up where I have 2 monitors (not using the laptop as a monitor) and I can dock my laptop in, push a single button, and have everything set up to turn on.  Is there a way to get a similar set up?

Answer:Docking Station Set Up

With a minidock I believe you can only have 2 of the 3 display outputs working, and even then only DVI or display port plus VGA.  As long as you have the lid closed, start up into your OS (windows I'm guessing) and then use the display/resolution options from control panel to configure/extend the screens. Some models of the T400 support different display options depending on the dock - have a look around in the main Lenovo support site for details about your specific model - look on the base for the model number (will look like 1234-x1d) - that will tell you what you have.

Thinking of buying a Kodak CX4230. Does the docking station charge the internal/external batteries - Is it really needed?

Answer:Docking Station

What I'm trying to say is - Does the docking station only charge the cameras internal power pack? if so do I need a seperate battery charger for the external batteries?

Is there a docking station compatible with the 450 G2 that anyone is aware of?

Answer:450 g2 Docking Station

Hi, It does not have docking port therfore any USB port replicator will do. There are many USB 3.0 port replicators around, depending on how do you want to use the dock, the following one would be more suitable for your machine:               http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=5278439 Regards.

Hi, I have a T40 Thinkpad running Windows XP and a Thinkpad Dock II docking station.  When the laptop is docked in, it shows an additional E: drive - undock it and the E: drive disappears.  You can save a file on the E: drive when it's docked and search for it on the C: drive when undocked and it doesn't find it.  Any ideas why this might be happening?  One of the biggest problems is it seems to be splitting programs so some programs only work when the laptop is undocked. Thanks

Answer:Docking Station for T40

Hi and welcome the forum!Maybe the dock has another HDD installed in the Ultrabay 2000, see this video to learn where and how to eject it:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-55211Hope this helps.

With the advent of external hard drives, it is obviously easier to access data, but still it can be a pain in the ***. For those of us, and I imagine there are more than a few of you like me, that have piles of hard drives sitting around, this is what we have been waiting for. Thermaltake sent over a new advertisement this morning for the HDD Docking Station. I saw this thing and knew I wanted one immediately. Given that most motherboards today will allow you to easily hotswap hard drives, this thing is exactly what the doctor ordered. Need to access a hard drive? No problem, just stick it in the dock! No enclosures, no cabling, just data. Killer. We will give you our thoughts when we get finished abusing one, or two.
