Have you updated the BIOS for this laptop? I've resolved a lot of profile/docking station issues by doing so. Just make sure that you update for your specifc make and model of lapotop. You might also try reinstalling the printer drivers. That doesn't take long and can sometimes quickly resolve issues like this.
