Note: ThinkPad Dock II, Mini Dock, and ThinkPad Port Replicator II provide docking for all ThinkPad X, T, and A series systems that support Docking stations. R40 and earlier R series machines that support docking are supported only on the ThinkPad Port Replicators and Mini Dock. Please check the system documentation or with your IBM representative for additional information.
Text of the audio portion of this movie
This movie demonstrates docking all supported ThinkPad systems with a Mini Dock except the ThinkPad T40 and R50 systems. The process is identical with ThinkPad Dock II or Port Replicator II, the exception being the Port Replicator does not have a system key lock. The system is in a completely powered off state. For further information consult the user's guide.
Plug in the power cord.
Insert the key and turn it to the unlocked upright position.
The new Mini Dock, ThinkPad Port replicator II, and ThinkPad Dock II provide docking for a wide variety of systems in part due to the sliding adjuster plate. The adapter plate must be in the forward position on all other systems except the ThinkPad T40 and R50 systems. If the plate is in the rear position, slide the plate forward from the left side of the dock.
The connector on the bottom of the computer must line up with the connector on the dock.
Use your fingers on both sides to center machine over the dock.
Press firmly and equally on both sides of your computer until you hear a click. Note: It is very important to apply equal pressure on both sides of the computer while pressing down.
Turn the key to locked horizontal position and remove the key.
