Assuming you would like a guide on how to connect an external monitor to a laptop docking station:
- Most importantly, check that your laptop dock has the correct video ports for your external monitor. The three most common types of video ports are HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI (Digital Video Interface). If your laptop only has one of these ports available, then you will need to buy an adapter in order to use a different port type on your monitor. For example, if your laptop only has an HDMI port but your monitor uses DVI, then you will need an HDMI-to-DVI adapter. These can be found at most electronics stores.
- Once you have verified that your dock and monitor are compatible, it is time to connect them together using the appropriate cable(s). If you are using HDMI or DisplayPort, then a simple cables should suffice. However, if you are using DVI then you will likely need two cables: one for power and one for the video signal. Make sure to plug in the power cable first before connecting the video cable as this can cause problems with some docks and monitors.
- After both cables are plugged in, turn on your external monitor and wait a few moments for it to initialize. In some cases, Windows may automatically detect the new display and prompt you on how best to configure it. However, if not then open up the “Display Settings” control panel (found under Start->Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Personalization) and click on the “Detect” button located near the top of the window. This should cause Windows to detect your new display and prompt you accordingly.
