    My HP Quickdock station is not charging my laptop and I've had to connect the AC adapter to the laptop since the battery went down to 40% yesterday. Is there a fix short of replacing it? I run a small business and can't afford to have these issues!

    If I were you, I would take it back. If it's plugged in properly and not charging, I'd say it's a hardware fault with the actual HP quickbook station.

    I can't, the unit is about 3 or 4 years old. But judging from the search engine responses I've seen, it's a common problem, even with new units, and I've yet to see a solution.

    It sounds like you got good use out of it if you have had it for 3 to 4 years. Try buying a new docking station and see if it works for you, if not, take it back. Things wear out you know, some sooner than others.
