Note to all SO beginner:

Please read (and embrace!) Jon Skeet's helpful hints on how to write a good question (or at least his short version here ) - one that has a chance that someone can answer it.


A Pascal/Delphi programmer and database freak at heart, I work as a C# developer on line-of-business applications (mostly ASP.NET).

I'm interested mostly in distributed systems (WCF), database (design and SQL), and Active Directory.


I'm an MCPD .NET 4 Web Developer, MCPD .NET 4 Windows Developer, MCPD Enterprise Application Developer (.NET 3.5), and MCTS for WCF, ADO.NET, Winforms and ASP.NET.

Dave - yes, I tried several keyboards, several external disks - all show the same behavior (not being "recognized" or "accepted" by the dock).

Dave: I tried this - no luck, no improvement. Situation is still the same - trying to connect the keyboard to the docking station results in a "dead" keyboard - no typing is being sent to the notebook :-(

@MichaelFrank: ah - ok - wasn't aware of that. But the docking station is definitely powered on in my case.
