I have a T410 that has a custom WinXP Pro + SP3 image. When the user restarts their laptop docked in a mini series 3 docking station, the laptop displays the Thinkpad welcome screen and then goes blank. There is a monitor connected to the docking station by a VGA cable. It does not matter whether the laptop is closed or not the same issue arises.
When I remove the remove the laptop off the docking station the screen is still blank.
I have tried Fn+F7 with the laptop in the docking station and when it is off and still no joy. I have replaced the docking station and even used a VGA cable and still experience the same result.
I have gone into the BIOS Settings and changed the Display configurations to Analog (VGA), Digital 1 on dock, Digital 2 on dock, and Digital on Thinkpad. None of these changes made a difference.
