Lenovo ThinkPad T480-A485
Step 1: Placement
Setup the monitor(s) and docking station. Place the monitor and computer on a desk or work area. Be sure to place your docking station in an area that is well ventilated and has good air flow. This will help to prevent the computer from overheating.
Step 2: Surge Protection
Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet. You may also need to turn on the surge protector if it has a power switch.
Step 3: Monitor Cable
If the monitor cable was removed, locate it and connect it to the back of the monitor. Finger tighten the screws, if applicable. Repeat if using two monitors.
Step 4: Monitor to PC
Connect the other end of the monitor cable to the back of the docking station. Repeat if using two monitors.
The ends of the monitor cable will only fit a specific way. If the cable doesn't fit, don't force it or you might damage the connectors; flip the plug end over instead. Make sure the plug aligns with the port, then connect it.
Step 5: Monitor Power
Use the power cable to connect the monitor to the surge protector. Repeat if using two monitors.
Step 6: Computer Power
Use the docking station power supply cable to connect the docking station to the surge protector.
Step 7: Keyboard and Mouse
Connect the keyboard and mouse into one of the USB ports on the back of the docking station. These will also only fit a specific way. If the cable doesn't fit, flip the plug end over. Make sure the plug aligns with the port, then connect it.
Step 8: Network
Determine if using a wired or wireless connection to the internet equipment (wired is recommended whenever possible.)
Connect cable from the docking station to the ISP modem/router OR Connect laptop to wireless
Step 9: Headset
Connect the headset (built-in mic) into the headphone jack of the docking station.
If you are not using your docking station, connect the headset (built-in mic) into the headphone jack of the side of the laptop.
Step 10: Boot
Press the power button on the monitor(s) and dock your laptop. If the lights do not come on, ensure that the surge protector is switched on.
