Recently purchased PRO1X Docking Station for my Latitude D600 Laptop. When I connect the laptop to the docking station the amber light on the power button goes off and my power adapter is shorted off.
Dell Latitude D620, Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 2.33GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB Seagate Momentus 5400.4 HDD, 64MB Nvidia Quadro NVS 110M, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG, DVD±RW, Windows Vista Ultimate w/ SP1
Actually working with a brand new power cord (90 Watt) I thought it was the cord that was bad. Computer works fine without docking station.
But does the power adapter work with the computer?
Try plugging your D600's 65 watt power adapter into it (don't boot up the computer on it, 65 watts isn't enough and you'll get an error message). If the 65 watts one also gets shorted out, then the docking station is defective.
it looks like it is the docking station
thanks for the help
