Chapter 3. Using the dock

This chapter provides information on how to use the headset and microphone combo connector, Gigabit
Ethernet connector, DVI-I video output connector, and USB connectors on the dock.
You can connect devices to the appropriate connectors on the dock while your notebook computer is
started. Normally it will take several seconds for the notebook computer to recognize new devices.

Using the headset and microphone combo connector

The headset and microphone combo connector on the dock is a 3.5-mm microphone combined stereo
line-out connector. It only works for the standard 3.5-mm headset or microphone.
To use the headset and microphone combo connector on the dock, firmly insert your headset, microphone,
or speaker into the headset and microphone combo connector.
Note: The headset and microphone combo connector on the dock is automatically enabled when you have
successfully connected the dock to your notebook computer and installed the device driver. However, if you
cannot hear anything from the headset connected to the headset and microphone combo connector on the
dock, you can manually enable the headset and microphone combo connector on the dock. See "Manually
enabling the headset and microphone combo connector" on page 13 for more information.

Using the Gigabit Ethernet connector

To use the Gigabit Ethernet connector on the dock, connect the dock to standard 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or
1000 Mbps network, and wait until the dock is fully configured by the Windows operating system.

Using the USB connectors

To use the USB connectors, connect a USB device to any of the four USB connectors on the dock with a
USB cable.
When the USB device is correctly connected to a USB connector on the dock, an information window will
be displayed in the Windows notification area, indicating that the USB device has been connected to the
computer.

Using the DVI-I video output connector

You can connect one external monitor to the dock by using the DVI-I video output connector. You do not
have to disconnect the dock from your notebook computer each time when you connect the external
monitor to the DVI-I video output connector.
To use the DVI-I video output connector, connect the DVI cable of the external monitor to the DVI-I video
output connector on the dock.
You also can connect an external monitor with a VGA connector to the dock by using a DVI-I to VGA adapter.
