USB ports not working in docking station

I have a dell D630 in a dell docking station. All devices plugged into the docking station are working except the USB ports. (NIC, Video, ect& ) I have had another laptop on the docking it worked fine.
I replaced the Docking station and my computer. But the same hard drive with the same image and it still does not work. I have removed the hardware profile for Docked and still nothing. I have cycled the power on the docking station as well.  I have updated the BIOS the Chipset Drivers and the USB controller drivers from Dells webpage. The USB ports do work in the  side of the laptop.  
I am getting some warnings in System event properties from SCardSvr and am running Smartcard authentication.

Windows will create the hardware profile "Docked" on its own. I have removed and rebuilt the profile 3 times without any luck. I don't have any more time to give this problem so I am backing up data and reimaging the machine. .

Try looking at the USB controllers listed in Device Manager with the laptop both on and off the docking station.  See if you notice a difference in the number of controllers listed.  It should show at least 1 more for the docking station.  You could also uninstall the controllers and see if Windows detects and installs the controller when you put it on the docking station.

Mike thanks so much for the info. I have already removed all the USB hubs, controllers and devices from device manager and had windows redetect and install. Still no love.

Try creating docked and undocked hardware profile and see if that helps any

If the notebook is still under warranty, I'd give Dell a shout.  You never know.

We are having the same issue with a few of our D630's.  The problem is not universal with all the units, we have approximately 300 D630's and this has only happened on maybe 10 of them.  Some were imaged a year ago, some have our new image.  A re-image is the only way to fix it so far.  The latest victim is one of our directors and I'm really hoping to avoid a re-image for him.

I would try to lay this on Dell as well, because it doesn''t look like windows issue from the screenshot you have provided.
