Answer
There are two areas you can check:
Physical Lock. The dock LED, found on the
top of DockMate IV, should be lit, and the
dock lock pops out.
Logical Lock. The peripherals connected to
DockMate IV should function normally with
the computer. Press Fn-F2 to enter Setup
and look at the settings in About My
Computer — the peripherals connected to
DockMate IV should register.
If a peripheral is not functioning normally, enter
suspend-to-memory (Fn-Esc), then exit to re-
configure the system.
Yes. After connecting the computer to DockMate
IV, the system will detect the add-on hardware
and load the driver automatically under
Windows 95.
When docked, the computer's infrared port is
automatically disabled to free up resources for
use by other devices.
After undocking, you can re-enable the infrared
port using the BIOS Utility:
1.
Press Fn-F2 to enter the BIOS Utility.
Press F8; then select System Configuration
2.
and press Enter.
3.
Press PgDn twice to go to page 3.
4.
Set the IrDA (FIR) parameter to Enabled and
exit the BIOS Utility.
