Unable to use regular monitor in docking station
Posted on 2005-04-08
I had to reimage a Dell Latitude 840 with Windows 2000 Pro. Out of the docking station, it's fine. Plug the monitor into the laptop itself, it's fine. Plug the monitor into other computers, it's fine. But when I dock the laptop, and run the monitor through the docking station, it starts initially booting up fine, but when it gets to the point that the screen where you log into comes up, I get the error "Cannot display this video mode".
I've updated all the drivers, updated the BIOS and checked all my connections. When I plug another laptop, same model or different, the monitor works.
So, any ideas of what could be the problem?
