Lenovo T410 Shuts Off Immediately Upon Docking

Hello guys,

I have a Lenovo T410 and two docking stations for it. It works perfectly fine on one of them but it will shut down immediately upon docking on the other one and it will not start any more when the power button (its own or the one on the docking station) is pressed.

As it is working on one of the docking stations, I don't assume the problem is in the laptop. Just in case I tried with another one and had the same result.

Any ideas what might be wrong with the docking station and how I could repair it?
