on an HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop computer with an HP LE2201w monitor, the video doesn't work. I tested the monitor hooked directly to the laptop and it worked fine, however when I attach the monitor to the VGA port on the USB Docking station the screen goes black on the external monitor. The Intel graphics management console is not sensing a 2nd monitor. How do I get this to work?

The Docking Station has its own built in Flash Drive that acts like a bios when you plug it in. On there is a folder which has a neat little docking station utility that installs the Video drivers. Run it reboot then in the lower right you can adjust the settings it works for both DVI and VGI and it amazingly woks with great speed no jitters.
Hope this makes sense since I copied it from another thread where it solved the problem... I think? :-)

Is that the one you're referring to? I click on that and nothing happens.
What should I try now? Is that file corrupt? Missing?

Will the other units in my environment also become lemons soon?

What I noticed is that the flash drive of docking station has software for XP and Vista but it does not have software for Windows7. Yes, I have installed windows7 on my laptop.
Could that be a problem>

I have Compaq 8710W and just installed windows 7 64bit professional.
With Vista docking station everything worked just fine.
Now I can't get video out of my Benq v2400W. Cable is DVI-HDMI. DVI at docking station and HDMI at screen.
