  1. Upon a re-boot today, my ibm t41 wouldn't re-boot while it was in the docking station. It goes to the IBM splash screen and them hangs (won't go into the bios either). Out of the docking station, everything is fine. It was in the docking station when i initially tried to re-boot. Any suggestions...lenovo support is little help beyond buy a new docking station and see what happens.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Update the system BIOS to the latest version?

    Disconnect everything possible from the dock in case it is something of the devices that is bad.

    Nodsu,

    Thanks for the suggestion...I disconnected everything from the dock, deleted the docking config in hardware configuration plugged everything back in and all is well. Just wish support had a more reasonable fix than "get a new docking station"
