    I have a HP Compaq 6510b laptop attached to a HP docking station with Dual-link DVI (product # EN488AA, S/N CNU830Y0NH). The laptop power adapter quit ages ago, the docking station adapter (HP part # 384023-001) will fit both laptop and docking station.

    I was trying to identify the old adapter and briefly plugged it into the laptop while the laptop was attached to the docking station. There was no power to the old adapter. The laptop switched to battery power and will not charge on the docking station. I can plug the adapter into the laptop and it will charge and run off the adapter. The problem is my network connections do not work through the docking station if it is not plugged in. Do I need a new docking station or is there an easier fix?
