What do I need to do to dock my Latitude 5000/7000 series notebook on my E-Port?
Latitude 5000/7000 Series system users note that the spacing adjuster on the E-Port Advanced Port Replicator (APR) does not extend far enough to assist when docking a 5000/7000 Series Latitude notebook.
Install the Docking Spacer
Due to a change in chassis design, the docking port on a Latitude 5000/7000 Series is much closer to the edge of the chassis than in previous Latitude models.
To compensate for this change, there is a docking spacer, Dell Part XJD0R
, to ease the docking process on these systems.
