Afternoon All,

Hoping you might be able to clarify something for me.

I'm looking at purchasing a docking station/port replicator for my Sony Vaio SR series.

The info on the product names the ports, saying that the DVI-D port is only compatable with an external Gfx model.

Can you confirm what an external Gfx is and how i would know if my system has this as part of the configuration ??

Many Thanks in advance for your help,
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???

I am assuming the Port Replicator states its only compatible with the external graphics adapter. This likely means that it needs a laptop that uses separate graphics adapter not one that's integrated into the chipset. If your laptop has the Nvidia logo or ATI logo it likely has the needed hardware. Can you list the model number of your laptop?
