Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

Booted into windows using the cd. Attempted to update the firmware to no avail, the most recent software which was version 7 wouldnt load because of it being unable to load the needed libraries for graphics apparently and I saw no fix to that issue. I attempted version 6 and it said the dock was not...

Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

I don't think using WINE for that is the way to go. I could be wrong on that. I think you'll be better off creating a boot USB such as Hiren's BootCD for installing something like that, although I'm not even sure if that applies to Linux in any way. EDIT: I just searched some dock threads, and it a...

Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

After further searching I am thinking that maybe the docks firmware is out of date. This is the readme.txt of the update. https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/fwdphb07.txt (link derived from https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/migr-4tpjf4 and search for 40a2, firmware update is under th...

Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

I did find a review by Martin W here that implies you should be able to get things to work. Unless it's a dud of course, and that sometimes does happen. Hmm, yeah I had been searching it up earlier and I saw that there were others with issues, but I could not find an exact one similar to mine, the ...

Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

I've never owned a dock, so can't help any further. I was hoping disabling the autosuspend feature for USB might fix this, but that's obviously not the case. We'll need to wait for someone else to help at this point. One output that may help someone help you is lsusb No worries, thank you for the h...

Re: T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working

Hi Joseph, and welcome to the forum. This is just a guess, but it's easy to undo if it doesn't work. Run this in the terminal then reboot: sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/usb-fix.conf <<<'options usbcore autosuspend=-1' If this had no effect, simply run sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/usb-fix.conf to remove the c...

T440p + 40a2 Ultra Dock - Ports not working
