General Preparation (SelectaDock II - III)

General Preparation

NOTE: Port replicator  means the SelectaDock Base Model I  or SelectaBase 770.
SelectaDock  means the SelectaDock II or III, and SelectaDock Docking System  means the port replicator and SelectaDock when docked together as one unit.

     When any other model is docked to the SelectaDock, a beep sounds.  Check which model of the ThinkPad  is docked to the SelectaDock before maintenance.

  1.  Check that the port replicator is correctly docked (connected) to the SelectaDock.
  2.  Check that the computer is correctly docked (connected) to the SelectaDock Docking System.
  3.  Dock a known-good computer to the port replicator and  verify proper operation.
     If there is a problem, replace the port replicator.
  4.  If possible, make sure there are no hardware  setting conflicts, such as in interrupt levels,  memory addresses, DMA channels, and I/O addresses.
  5.  If an PCI or an ISA card is installed, verify  the card is supported by the computer.
  6.  Check that the SCSI ID is set correctly.
  7.  Test and correct any computer problems before you test  it with the SelectaDock Docking System. Use the computer documentation to  resolve any computer problems.
  8.  Test the computer with the external keyboard, external display,  mouse, and parallel and serial device connectors.  (Use the keyboard/mouse  connector to test the external keyboard and mouse.)
     If no problems are found, connect the external keyboard,  mouse, parallel and serial devices to the SelectaDock Docking System. Then  connect the SelectaDock Docking System to the computer and test it.
  9.  If external devices are attached to the SelectaDock Docking System,  such as an audio amplifier, check the device by referring to the  manual shipped with it.
  10.  If the user did not bring the computer with a  SelectaDock Docking System when service is needed,  use a computer that works correctly with the SelectaDock Docking System.
