Hello mr, Matt the hyjacker?
why not ask using all your facts, and not OPs
my wild guess is the OP inserted to the docking station
and bent pins, and now will not work.
the word unlock here is poor choice of words
as many docking stations have option key mech. KEY lock.
so if NOT a key lock !
then it is just mechanically jammed
why not get someone to fix it
or try to unjam it your self , I am sure the OP did 8 long years ago.
or sold it or scrapped it.

invert the whole thing, LT and dock.
upside down, now press dock firmly the LT bottom
near the Connector end and at same time...
then unlatch the dock using the dock latch release now.
this relieves pressure (gravity) and can aid in the cure.

SOURCE: removing laptop from docking station

If you have the ArmadaStation EM:

The issue of removing the notebook is compounded by the fact that the ArmadaStation EM uses a motorized dock/undock mechanism to remove the notebook. When the expansion base has no power, it is unable to eject the notebook with the motor
 To manually remove the notebook, use manual eject lever to push notebook out of ArmadaStation EM. The manual eject level is a small white lever located inside the back cover of the base. To remove the notebook, push the white lever to the left. Slight pulling is required to remove the notebook completely out of the base.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Missing Docking Station key

You will have to take the docking station apart until you can see the locking mechanism. Once you can see the mechanism, you should be able to get a screwdriver ron it and release it. Make sure that it releases, don't force it, and most of all, be patient.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: HP Elitebook 8540p is getting no video in docking station

The solution that resolved this problem On Bios version F.0E was:

  • Power up the unit off the docking station and plug it into the docking station.
  • Delete all copies of the COM1 port in the device manager.
  • Perform a restart on the docking station.
  • When you log back into windows go back into the device manager and redetect hardware.(You should now have 2 visable copies of the COM1 port. One will have a bang next to it.)
  • Delete both copies of COM1 and scan for hardware changes. (This should give you 1 good copy of the COM1.)
  • Power down the laptop, and take off the docking station.
  • Power it back up straight from the docking station and you will notice no more hangs when booting off the docking station
Enjoy...

Docking station usb ports are not working -laptop is lenovo x240


Hi

If all other ports on your docking station are working then this would point to either a hardware fault on the DS or with the DS drivers on the laptop, I would also make sure you have seated the laptop on the DS correctly as this can sometimes cause some ports to appear not to be working correctly

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

Hi, My 2.5" laptop hard drive


If the hard drive fails to seat itself in your docking station, then the docking station is not suited to communicate with that drive. Never break off portions of the drive as they contain the wired contacts necessary for communication. Get a USB drive extension from TigerDirect.com

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.

T40 TP will not boot in dock


sounds like your docking station may have some junk in the seating connector. Take a look, and perhaps you'll need to swab those connections with a tight, long style swab, with denatured alcohol.

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?
