Ultra dock is beeping

2021-02-21, 16:51 PM

I am running a T450s with the Ultra Dock and have the problem that there is a beeping occuring.

It is difficult to describe but sounds like the feedback sound when using a modern stove.

It seems to only occur when I am using the dock but I can't find a real pattern to when and why.

I have read and read online but have found no solutions.

 

I cannot make the beeping start by pressing a lot of keys on the keyboard, but sometimes it seems to especially occur when I actively use the keyboard.

 

Any inputs much appreciated since listening to the beeps for hours a day takes quite a bit of self-control to not get distracted by.

Hi kahnemann!


Welcome to community forums


Can you provide an audio recording of the beeping sound? Where is it coming from? If it's from the laptop, which side is it? Can you provide the model of the docking station?

Let us know.

Hi and thank you for getting back to me!

I can't really tell from the website what the name of the model is, but the link is here (it's in danish, unfortunately):

https://uniprint.dk/lenovo-thinkpad-ultra-dock-portreplikator-refurb

 

I'll try to record it, but it could be quite difficult to tell exactly where it is coming from. Since it only occurs when the machine is docked, all the parts will be very close to each other.

Is it the same sound if you dock/undock the laptop?

I don't hear the sound when it is not docked.

But when it's docked it is in a vertical position.

 

2 days ago it made the sound at least 100 times, which it has done before.

But then yesterday maybe only 5 times - making it difficult to record it.

That's not what I meant. The sound you hear, is it the same if you connect / disconnect a USB device? 

If the system has Windows installed you can test play the sounds in 'Sound Control Panel'

It's called device connect  and device disconnect.

Alright, I see.

This sound is different from all other sounds I have heard and quite different from the device connected/disconnected sound.

Can you force the beep if you  move/nudge the system when docked?

Please try the test described in this  message thread.

It seems the attach function didn't work. But here is a link to the recording:
