I received an old UD3000 USB docking station from my dad for college recently, but when I started setting it up, everything except two did not work. My monitor could not be discovered and I couldn’t connect to the internet with my ethernet cable connected to the docking station (even though it had a green light). Can anyone familiar with such a situation please help? I would be extremely grateful to be able to get this up and running. I have a Lenovo T470s running Windows 7.
Based on your description of the behavior, the first step is to completely reset the docking station and perform a ‘clean’ installation of the required DisplayLink driver (necessary for the display and network components) to ensure both are in a good state. To do so, please follow these steps:
Please disconnect the dock from the system and please disconnect the power cable from the dock so it turns off completely (this is important so the unit resets). Please keep everything disconnected until the last step.
Uninstall any and all software with ‘DisplayLink’ in the title that is present from within the Control Panel -> Programs and Features. Don’t worry if these entries are not present or if the process does not work, please just move onto the next step.
Reconnect the power cable to the dock first. Once the dock is powered on (a blue light will be present on the front), reconnect it to your system. If the device is not detected, please reboot the system.
