Docking and Undocking

Congratulations! With the HP Notebook PC Port Replicator, you can significantly increase the convenience of your computer for desktop use. By making one connection—plugging your Notebook PC into the dock—you can get easy access to these devices: • Printer, external floppy drive, or other parallel devices. • Universal serial bus (USB) devices. • External keyboard and mouse. • External monitor. • Audio connections. 2 HP Port Replicator,

To dock the Notebook PC

1. Plug in the AC adapter. The AC power light turns on when power reaches the port replicator. Use the AC power adapter that comes with your computer. Note The AC power adapter is not included with the port replicator. Use the AC power adapter supplied with your notebook or you can buy an additional AC power adapter. See your notebook Setup Guide for details. You can use your notebook in the port replicator using battery power. The AC power indicator does not light in this operating mode. HP Port Replicator 3, 2. Position the computer on the port replicator and press down on the computer. The docking light turns on when you have a good connection.

To undock the Notebook PC

Making Connections

The following paragraphs provide a brief description about how to connect devices to the port replicator. For detailed information about using devices with your HP Notebook PC, see the online User’s Guide provided with your computer or go to the HP website at www.hp.com/notebooks (or, in Europe, go to www.europe.hp.com/notebooks).

To connect a printer (or other parallel device)

The parallel port uses a standard 25-pin connector, most commonly used for connecting a printer. These include dot-matrix, ink-jet, and laser printers. • Connect the parallel printer cable or other parallel cable to the parallel port.

To connect an external keyboard or PS/2 mouse

The 6-pin PS/2 port allows you to attach an external keyboard or a PS/2- compatible mouse to the computer. While an external PS/2 mouse is connected, the touch pad is normally disabled. The computer provides one PS/2 port, while the port replicator provides two PS/2 ports. • Plug the mouse or keyboard PS/2 cable into the corresponding PS/2 port on the port replicator. • To connect a device that has a PC-type jack, first connect its cable to an adapter cable with a PS/2 jack.

To connect a USB device

Note Windows NT 4.0 does not support USB. Universal serial bus (USB) provides a bi-directional serial interface for adding peripheral devices such as game controllers, serial and parallel ports, and scanners on a single bus. The port replicator provides two USB ports. 6 HP Port Replicator, Note If you have problems making this connection, contact the vendor of the peripheral device, as well as the HP website, for the latest versions of the USB drivers. The USB technology is dynamic and continues to develop. • Attach the USB cable to one of the two USB ports. Windows 98 automatically recognizes the USB device. Some USB devices can be connected to the port replicator in a series of USB devices as a “daisy-chain” connection.

To connect audio devices

You can plug a stereo input source (such as a CD player), an external microphone, external speakers, or headphones into the audio ports on the port replicator. • Attach the audio cable to the corresponding audio port. Note When you plug a device into the microphone-in port, the computer’s built-in microphone automatically turns off. When you plug a device into the speaker-out port, its built-in speakers automatically turn off.

To connect an external monitor

1. From the Start menu, shut down the computer. 2. Connect the monitor cable from the monitor to the monitor port on the port replicator. 3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on. 4. Press the blue power button to turn on the computer. 5. To switch the display to the external monitor: Close the computer lid.

OR

Press Fn+F12 (or Ctrl+Alt+F12 on an external keyboard) to switch through the display options: LCD only, LCD + CRT, CRT only. Refer to the HP Notebook PC website for further details about using Windows 98 dual monitor capability. HP Port Replicator 7,

Troubleshooting

If you have a problem using the port replicator, try the following suggestions. You will find solutions to additional common problems and more troubleshooting techniques on the HP Notebook PC website, www.hp.com/notebooks (or, in Europe, www.europe.hp.com/notebooks). If a connection does not work • Try connecting the device to the corresponding port on the computer. • Check that the computer is fully inserted into the port replicator and that the docking light is on. • Check that both ends of the device cable are connected properly. • Check that both the device and the port replicator have power connected and turned on. • Reboot the computer. If an external PS/2 mouse or keyboard does not work • Check that the mouse or keyboard is plugged into the correct port. • Check that the PS/2 mouse is enabled in the BIOS Setup utility. If you cannot hear audio devices or files • Check that audio is not muted. • Increase the volume by pressing Fn + UP ARROW. 8 HP Port Replicator,
