Preferred Solution: Can't configure my 3 screen working station

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

As far as I can tell, Nvidia doesn't support Surround (three monitors) via daisy-chaining (the card in the video was AMD Radeon). You might be able to get two monitors to work like that - some sort of DisplayPort MST support was added a while ago because of tiled 4k displays - but to get them all working they need to be plugged to the card directly.

As GTX750 doesn't have proper connectors, you might need to change your graphics card to something that has three DP outputs or 2xDP + HDMI.

I have a Dell laptop on a docking station running Windows 7. Everyday I place it on the docking station and use my 20 inch monitor. Is it possible to activate the dual monitor feature and use the 20 inch as the primary and use the open laptop as the secondary monitor? If so, what should my settings be?

A:How do I configure dual monitors with laptop on docking station and external monitor?

The value of 'Multiple displays' (see attachment) should be 'Extend these displays.' You may have to switch the positions of the two monitors (at the top of that window).

The network card (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet) on the docking station for my Z60m went out (does not show link at all, always shows unplugged). I tried removing/reinstalling with the most recent driver, but no luck. Is there any way to active the internal NIC while plugged into the docking station? That would at least give me a work around, although slightly inconvienant. Thanks.

I got a new Elitebook along with the HP Ultraslim 2013 docking station. When I dock the notebook, none of the peripherals are recognized, including a VGA monitor, or USB mouse and keyboard. Only the Ethernet works. Even the power is not working. I have the Ultraslim powered, but it is not charging the battery. The docking station power button lights up after I dock the laptop. There is a power LED that is turned on near the power cord of the Ultraslim power port. I've tried to dock it, turn off the Ultraslim, then turn back on. No change. I've undocked - unplugged everything. Dock, then plug everything in and still no change. I'm not sure if there is some setup that has to be done for the dock, e.g. run the drivers, etc. Shouldn't this just be plug-And-Play? I have Windows 7 Professional on an Intel i7-5600U. Any help is appreciated.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L10-B with Windows 8.1, which I bought for my wife. The complementary telephone support period has expired, and I need help.

Ever since I bought the computer, I have been wondering how to check for Toshiba updates. I eventually found out there is a program called Toshiba Service Station that is supposed to check for updates automatically, but I had not even seen that program, or any notifications from it.

I went looking for it using the search feature, and now I know where to find it.

I just today tried to manually check for Toshiba updates using Toshiba Service Station, but it is coming up with an error message to the effect that the program could not initialize, and that I would have to reboot or re-install the program. I tried re-installing the program from the support website, and I'm still getting the same error message.

Where do I go to from here?

A:Satellite L10-B - Toshiba Service Station not working

I'm currently having a different problem but with my Toshiba Service Station on my Toshiba Satellite P70-A laptop 8.1 notebook/laptop.

I had when Windows 10 free upgrade became available. Had upgraded it to Windows 10. I've been having a couple of issues with my Toshiba since the upgrade. But I'll address them in another thread.

The problem I'm having is the Toshiba Service Station as well. I got a notification alert in Notification Center from Toshiba Service Station. That there was some new updates to download and install. I opened Toshiba Service Station. Clicked the Download button. Waiting for the Download Progress bar to progress across. But it wasn't downloading as the download progress bar wasn't even downloading a small file size update for one of Intel drivers. I'm like waiting and waiting for the progress bar to fill. But only see an inch of the bar filled. The update was only over 300mb to download. My internet speed is fast. So I'm not sure what's taking so long to download.

Please tell me what I should do?

I can't seem to find the documentation I found on a forum but the intial batch of slim docking stations WILL NOT allow 2 dp at the same time.  It is due to the architecture of the of the laptop and the docking station.  In order for two dp at the same time, you  will need to buy the 2013 one.  (I will try to find the product number for you).  Their workaround was to use VGA and DP at the same time, which you have already figured out. Update: Looks like the page is not found, however, the title says it all. "Alert: Dual display limitations of 2013 HP UltraSlim Docking Station with HP EliteBook Folio 9470m N..." Update #2:  Found it attached.    Can't upload pdf files

I have an Ultraslim docking station for my Folio 9470m ultrabook, and while the network and monitor ports work just fine, the USB ports don't seem to be working. When I connect an external keyboard to any of the 3 ports, and an external harddrive to the one USB port with power supply, neither of them is recognized and functioning. Plugging them into the ultrabook directly works just fine - but that kinda defeats the purpose of having a docking station in the first place!What can I do to make my keyboard and external harddisk be recognized by the Ultraslim docking station??

I have a ZBook Studio G3.  I received the docking station for this laptop which is part number:  P5Q58UT#ABA.  I have plugged it in as instructed, but it is not charging the ZBook.  The power light on the docking station is illuminated.   The USB ports do not work either.  It appears that the only thing that is working is the power indicator and its ability to put the laptop to sleep if I press the button.  Do I have a defective docking station (it appears to be defective)?  If not, how do I get it to work?  By the way, the power supply that came with the docking station seems to be working just fine if I plug it directly into the ZBook.

Have new Ultraslim Docking Station 2013 and two VGA-to-Displayport adapters for my two older monitors.  If I don't dock the laptop (Elitebook 745 G3) and plug either of the monitors into the VGA port (without the adapters) directly to the laptop, the monitors both work.  If I plug one of the monitors into the VGA port on the docking station and dock the laptop, the monitors will both work (one at a time since only one VGA port on docking station).  However, if I use either or both of the DisplayPort ports (using the VGA to Displayport adapters) on the docking station they don't work.  Anyone able to provide some guidance?

I installed win 7 Ultimate successfully from a thumb drive and then did a re-install. The second time I am receiving the prompt "Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware"

Any ideas? I did not have any issues on the first install, it was totally successful.

A:2nd Win 7 install not working - Win says cant configure hardware?

Hello mate.

To rule out format errors, boot the Windows 7 installation media to diskpart and run the clean command, once the clean finishes, exit diskpart and use the Windows 7 installer to create and format a single 100GB partition to install to.

If that does't work, after another clean, use diskpart to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to see if that works, use Step #2 in the SSD/HDD tutorial for reference. DISKPART : At PC Startup

Anyone has an idea how I get Samsung LC27A750XS USB display drivers (win7x64) to work on a Samsung NP900X1b with the Win8 CP installed?

The drivers won't start at all. The built in USB3.0 hub is recognized and working flawlessly, but the USB display driver continues to report it can't be initiated as there's reg keys missing.

I've reinstalled the win7x64 drivers over the Win8 defaults but nothing is resolving. I'm trying to use either for extended viewing or as the primary display while at my desk.

Dear Masters,

since 1 Week i?ve encountered Problems using my Dockingstation
Satellite Click 2 Pro P30W

After the Last Windows Updates the Dockingstation will only be recognized after disconnecting the Tablet, than disconnect all devices connected to the Dockingstation.
Than can reattach the Tablet-Unit, Keyboard is recognized, than attach Power and the external devices. Everything is Working.
Power On is via Button not possible when attached to the Dockingstation.

All this occurs after the Last Toshiba Updates and Windows 10 Updates comes up.
I really need Help to fix that Issue.

I'm having a problem with my network connection properties window in XP. The net connection and wireless adapter (TP-LINK 802.11ac Network Adapter) work fine. When I right click on the network connection icon and select "Properties", I can see the adapter listed, but when i click the "Configure" button, the properties window just exits instead of allowing me to adjust the properties of the wireless adapter. It did work before and now it doesn't. I can still go into device manager and change the adapter settings there, just not from the network connection properties window. I'm guessing it something registry related, but not sure. Any ideas?Thanks!

A:Configure button for network adapter stopped working

Long shot that sometimes fixes oddities:Go to "Device Manager > Your Network Adapter", right click it and select Uninstall.If by any chance it asks if you want to remove Software then DON'T LET IT (probably doesn't say that in XP). Ignore other warnings. Restart computer. This procedures has simply unhooked the driver, so it will then see your adapter as new hardware and setup the software again. It might happen to get it right this time.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi all, I would like to configure the start screen to display some installed apps by default for all users accounts. For example I want every user on my computer to have Office in the start screen by default as they will want it anyway. How do I do this? I have seen lots of suggestion for adding to the application data start menu folder but that didn't work... also I tried default users profile without success...Surely there must be a way? How am I meant to do this?

A:configure start screen for all users

Ok, so I have looked some more and I still can't find a way to do this. All I want to do is propagate the the start screen with commonly used applications that everyone will want. I realize that the programs are installed to the all apps screen and users can pin them if they want, but surely there is a better way that doesn't waste employees time? And for that matter assume this knowledge prior to doing so....

One day I decided to clean out my computer, so i got out the air compressor and blew the dust out. Most would obviously dissmiss my problem as a blown chip due to static shock but somehow I don't think it is. When I start the computer up it comes up with a screen with lots of multi-coloured squares. Some of the little squares flash and some do not. I think it could be like an error code, as to the same affect as a d-bracket.

My graphics card is:
WinFast A280TD

Staus = :dead:

Hey all, I woke up this morning and started using my computer to find that there were white spots on my computer screen that I had not previously noticed. I have had the computer for two years and haven't had any similar issues. There does not appear to be anything wrong with the pixels, as the color changes appropriately - it's just brighter. Furthermore, the bright spots on the screen heat up much more than the rest of the screen, which remains cool. I also noticed that, though this may be a separate issue, the touch screen isn't responding. Here is an image (it's much more noticeable on a white background):   Any help is much appreciated!

Sounds like a faulty card or cable, if your able strip the laptop down and find the cable that links the screen to the motherboard, it may be loose, if the graphics card is a plug in type then try reseating it.

Other than that your gonna need a visit to a pc shop....

I recently bought one of these and while it seems like a decent drive, it's got a rather annoying habit of powering down after about a minute of non-use, and then having to spin up again to read. Is there any way to stop this? I've checked my XP power management settings and harddrives are set to never turn off. More annoying is that if the computer is left alone for some time, the drive will spin itself up periodically and then power down again.

A:Samsung G3 2TB Station

Windows Power Management Options sometimes don't have any effect on external drives if the power-saving is "hard coded" into the drive's firmware. The drive manufacturer should have a software utility to disable the drive's power-saving mode (well at least that's true of Seagate external drive's anyway because that's how I prevent it happening). However, the Seagate utility works only for Seagate drives.

Samsung have a utility called Drive Manager for external drives so it might be what you need since my Seagate utility is also called Drive Manager (though they aren't the same of course):

If that doesn't do it, look here:

A:NT Work Station

When the computer boots up, you have to log into it with a username and password. The one you are using does not have administrator rights. When you installed NT, it should have created an Administrator account and you had to enter a password. Use the username: administrator and use the password that you have it. Then try to install the program. While your there, give yourself administrator rights for you won't have to do this again. I'm not near an NT PC, and I forgot where the users are, but I'm sure someone can instruct you where it is - or you can fool around and figure it out.

The docking station is working fine otherwise, as indicated by an external monitor, keyboard, mouse, and hard drive all plugged into the docking station, not into the laptop. This is a brand new machine, I bought it and have had it for less than 10 days now.

At my work, I have a laptop that is hooked to a docking station. I've only been here for a little while, so yesterday was the second time that I undocked it. The first time, I did not use a power cord when I undocked it. It worked fine when out of the station. I used a power cord the second time. Before I left work, I put it back in the docking station, and I left. This morning, the laptop wouldn't start (in the docking station). I removed it from the station and tried to start it without the station. It still wouldn't start. Finally, I used the power cord and it began charging and would also start. After a while, I tried putting it back in the docking station, but it still would not charge. So right now, I am undocked and charging with the power cord.

The only problem I can forsee is that the connector pins on the docking station might not match the computer. Most newer laptops use 2 alignment pins to ensure the piece stays in the dock. If you can't get a good connection or see flaky things happening while the laptop is docked, but not while it's out, get the matching docking station.

As an alternative, Kensington offers a USB based docking station. It's not a true dock, but a stationary connector for your peripherals.

I'm trying to hardwire a new desktop system running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to my ancient Microsoft MN-500 wireless base station router, and I'm getting an unstable, intermittent connection. I have a Windows XP laptop that is connected wirelessly to the router with no issues, and the previous XP desktop that was hardwired to the router had no issues either. I removed the anti-virus (Norton) completely to rule that out. The connection is fine for about a minute or two, then all Internet I/O will stop (and will eventually come back several minutes later). Any thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm desperately looking for a dock for my new Spectre, since it only provides USB-C. I've researched and learnt that the Spectre is not compatible with generic USB-C chargers, and only charges on HP USB-C chargers. Is there a compatible dock from HP in the works, or is there a third party one?

Yes HP no longer makes true "docking stations" for its consumer laptops. A docking station is a snap-down platform that provides power to the laptop and replicates ports and allows for expansion such as additional hard drives, etc. Best you can do is to use a USB 3.0 "port replicator" many of which come with video and all the ports you could want but do not power the laptop. You still need to connect an AC adapter directly to the laptop to use the port replicator.  There are lots of these on the market. HP makes one and others do, too. Post back if you need any help. Expect to pay around $100 +/- for one with video. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.
