Dell D430 needs reboot after each undock

  1. I have a new dell D430 with a mediabase.
    I use the mediabase at work, and each night, I hibernate and take the laptop home.
    I find that when I come to work, dock the laptop and turn the laptop on, I can't use my external monitor or the DVD or any USB ports, but keyboard and mouse are OK.
    The only way to remedy this, is to reboot while docked.
    Is this a glitch, and is there a fix?
    Thanks

    nope, memtest came back fine.
    I wonder if I have screwed something under software!

    On that Dell Drivers link I posted up there
    Can you go back there (if you haven't already)
    And click on Chat with Support

    This is a live session with Dell support, that has instant results

    There may be an issue that I am unaware of.
    I would certainly like to know their response too
