HP Docking Station p/n VB041UT#ABA

[ Edited ]

we purchased above docking stations to work with HP Elitebook 8440P laptops, every time I dock laptop, the system will restart in a loop, any fixes for this? I donwloaded some usb 2.0 docking station driver off the Interent but still same problem.

Re: HP Docking Station p/n VB041UT#ABA

We have purchased about 12 HP Elitebook 8440p laptops and the docking station we have with it is VB041UT#ABA. When the laptop is docked and you restart in you see the HP screen then Windows XP. Then it goes blank. It will not go any further. This problem only occurs when docked and you choose restart. I updated the BIOS to the 8/2010 and also uninstalled all the ports while stand alone. Then I docked it so when it boots up the laptop is docked when the ports reinstall. This worked for the past eleven laptops. But not this one. I need a solution.
