I am using a TB SATA hard drive with 512 byte sector size with two partitions set to FAT32. The entire drive is using a Hybrid MBR/GPT which worked perfectly in Windows 7 . That is, until I made it a Hybrid. I need it to be a Hybrid because I need to use this drive with legacy hardware that requires both MBR and 512 byte sector sizes.
I'm using a Thinkpad T420s on Ubuntu 11.10 / gnome 3, which I usually put in the corresponding docking station.
The problem is that the docked device is unable to discover the second display if connected through the docking station's DVI port. No problem if connected directly, and no problem if I use the VGA port.
So I have just updated my hp touchpad over to Android ( amazing)... I have a Docking station that I bought from HP - Now the docking station allows me to lean the Tablet on it and it charges just by touching it... I was told if i have a Smartphone with Android it should be able to do the same thing but i've had no luck with this...
I've been running XFCE4 for about 3 months now on this laptop without problem. About 3 weeks ago the mouse suddenly stopped working. Being USB I tried hot plugging it and that fixed it. But the issue kept happening with more frequency. I'm on a laptop that is in a docking station at work. I moved the mouse from the docking station port to the laptop port to make it easier to hot plug.
I'm looking for a new laptop. USB 3.0 is a must. I'd really like a docking station (so far the only company I can find that does docking stations is Dell). I'd prefer not to pay for Windows, but none of the smaller laptop makers I've found do docking stations. ~14 - 15 inches...
