T460p+Ultradock - keyboard not working

I have been using the Pro dock since I got the T460p, but I needed multi-monitor support, so I just got the Ultra dock.


The issue I'm having is that I can't connect neither my Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo (K345) to the dock, nor a normal USB keyboard. When I plug in the usb dongle into the dock, I get the following:



And neither the keyboard nor the mouse work. I tried using a simple USB mouse and a simple USB keyboard (so simple, they don't even have a manufacturer's name on them). While the mouse works, I get this from the keyboard, which doesn't work:




I have another Logitech wireless combo, which also doesn't work with the Ultra dock, btw.


I can get the K345 to work, but only when I plug in the dongle directly to the laptop (lid closed, still on the dock).

Meanwhile, USB memory sticks work just fine when plugged into the dock's usb ports.


I am using the 230W charger with this setup, so it's not a power issue.


A couple of things I've already tried:

- I've downloaded the Logitech SetPoint software (something I've never done in my life, but just to cover that angle)

- I've updated the dock firmware, as noted by the Lenovo's System Update Center software.


I am at my wits end here, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Try (re)installing the Intel chipset software while the dock is attached?


Might also try redoing the USB 3.0 drivers too:

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

Re: T460p+Ultradock - keyboard not working

Unfortunately, none of the suggestions worked.

I managed to find a solution, so I'm posting it, just in case someone runs into this issue in the future.

From another computer I copied the usb.inf and usb.PNF files located at C:\Windows\inf folder, which were missing on my laptop. Then I plugged in the wireless dongle, went into Device Manager and from there I right-clicked on the USB Receiver and selected "update drivers". Unlike before, this time Windows managed to successfully update the drivers and it's working now.
