Can i use the Dell USB Docking Station to drive my two monitors from my Inspiron?

Jump to solution

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7567, and i have a Dell WD15 docking station (through work, and i can't get any other model such as D3100).

Trouble is, the docking station has an output of USB-C. My Inspiron has no USB-C ports!!

Is it safe/possible to use a USB-C to USB converter to make use of the docking station?

Is there anyone in Dell i can contact to get this information?

Thanks,

MIT86,

Unfortunately, It is not possible. The WD15 must be connected directly into the computer USB-C port. This would not work =Computer USB port --> USB to USB-C female converter cable --> WD15 USB-C connector cable
