Problem with my Dell Docking station for my Dell D630 Laptop

By samlove3028 ·
My laptop boots up fine out of the docking station. When I place it in the docking station and turn it on it goes through the first dios screen then it doesn't go any further. The green "lock" light in the top left of the laptop stays lit. It has a 9 in the middle of the lock. Laptop seems to be in a lock mode. Anyone have any solutions?

Make sure that you

have power connected to the docking station and if it uses a power supply rather than an AC cord make sure you are using the 90 watt and not the 65 watt.

make sure you haven't mixed the AC adapters. The one for the laptop is not interchangeable with the one for the dock.

Try undocking, powering down the laptop, removing the battery for 30 seconds, putting it back, booting undocked, shutting down, docking, and booting.
