Problem with Advanced Dock and PCI-e card

I installed a PCI-e card (the satellite receiver TeVii S470, x1) on my Advanced Dock.

The laptop (T400) freezes, sometimes while booting, sometimes after it.

One time I even succeeded to install this card and then Windows (XP) froze. 

When I remove the card, everything works well.

If this problem occurs while booting and I undock the laptop, Windows starts normally.

I updated the BIOS and all motherboard drivers - nothing helped.

There are several descriptions of similar situations in the Internet but no solutions.

Does anyone know, what is wrong and how to resolve this problem?

Re: Problem with Advanced Dock and PCI-e card

this card is probably not supported in the dock. There is only a limited card support in that slot.

They write (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-61232 ):

"One half-size PCI Express card slot - Supports half-size PCI Express cards, including graphics adapters that enable multi-monitoring."  

Seems having unlimited compatibility, doesn't it?

may sounds like that, but in reality not really.

Re: Problem with Advanced Dock and PCI-e card

I tested my docking station with another laptop, R61i, - works fine!.

Something is wrong with BIOS definitions, I suppose.
