I just got a T430 and a Mini Dock from a refurbisher, and the dock won't physically attach to the laptop. From inspection, the latches don't fully insert into the holes on the laptop. I've tried messing aronud with it a bit but I can't get it to lock. With the dock plugged in, the computer light will come on if I press down on the dock. Anybody have any ideas what to do?

Do the latches move when you push the release button? The dock could be broken

The latches do move, and the two tabs move upwards. From videos I've watched the top piece doesn't seem to have the full range of motion it's supposed to, the metal tabs barely protrude when fully depressed.

When they work correctly, the machine should attach quickly and easily. They should release when you press the button. It sounds like yours should be described as "broken", rather than refurbished.
