Windows 7 - T400 - 2504 Docking Station

Loaded T400 with Windows 7 RC (Professional and Ultimate versions), now the USB ports on my 2504 docking station no longer work. All other ports work normally. Updated the BIOS to the latest version - no change. The USB ports work when I boot up with XP or Vista hard drives. Has anyone else seen this issue or is just an anomaly on my setup? All-in-all the load is remarkably stable. A few other problems like the ATI driver are apparent, but overall the Beta drivers seem to work very well.

Re: Windows 7 - T400 - 2504 Docking Station

I am having the same issue with the T500 on the 2504 dock. Worked fine with XP and did a clean install of 7 and now none of the USBs or the monitor ports work. What gives?

This was only an issue in Windows 7 RC.  The problem went away in Windows 7 commercial release.

How do you fix it? I installed Windows 7 from a DVD my IT guy gave me. Is there a way to update the OS and fix this bug?

Re: Windows 7 - T400 - 2504 Docking Station

Bios is updated and Windows 7 is the final release but the USBs still do not work. Everything else does (LAN, power, monitor). Is there a driver that needs installing or updating? Under devices, Windows shows a few deviced missing drivers but it cant locate any online. I assume i missed something when installing the Lenovo software back on after the clean install of 7. Any ideas?

Re: Windows 7 - T400 - 2504 Docking Station

I tried updating drivers - bios - change bios settings, well everything...

 

And still my mouse and keyboard stop respondig again and again, annooooying, grrrrrr

 

it sometimes help disconnecting the usb cable and reconnect it, then it works for a while again...

 

But honestly, Lenovo should act on this issue, so keep this discussion alive and help pressing lenovo to a solution.
