Everything works nicely in windows xp. Did anyone experience this?
I'm having a little better experience, but not perfect. I'm running Vista (production release) on an XPS 1710 with D/Dock and an external DVI monitor. I don't get the blue screen, but I do get some erattic behavior from the monitor. It worked flawlessly under XP, but under Vista switching to the external monitor is really flakey. The hot-key Fn-F8 no longer works, but I can get the display to switch to the external and blank the internal if I use the Windows Mobility Center to connect the monitor, then switch to it using the Personalize Display Settings. Once switched, it works fine, but if the laptop suspends or I re-boot, I have to go through the entire process again. I've installed the Dell Notebook System Software (R120775) but it doesn't seem to make a difference. By the way, I installed Vista while the laptop was docked - maybe that made a difference. In any case, I'm still looking for a better solution.
