Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook ?

How does a USB docking station work w/ a regular docking station

\015 I have 2 pc's that I alternate. One works with a docking station the other does not. I was told I could use a USB docking station for the older pc. I was hoping to use the same docking station for both so I could pop the pc in and out without chasing connections. Does a USB docking station plug into the regular docking station?\015

Answers :

The older pc probably needs a usb 2.0 port to run docking station. the manual on the docking station should tell you. you may need to install a usb 2.0 pci card in your older computer for it to work.
