External Monitor, NC4200 Notebook & HP advanced dockingstation issues
Posted on 2006-04-14
The current setup is HP NC4200 notebook, HP advanced docking station, HP monitor stand & Planar PL1700 17" LCD. I have 4 users on identical setup.
My problem is when docking the notebook 90% of the time the desktop will not show up on the external monitor. I can't figure out why. Here is what I've done so far:
1. Change power settings so when user closes lid it does nothing
2. Went into HW profile and selected "This laptop is docked"
3. HP support just says press Function+F4. DRRRR thanks for nothing, but the notebook is in a monitor stand, theres no opening the lid.
So I'm out of options at this point that I can think of. Any other options or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
