port replicator for the old Toshiba Portege 3410CT
I need to know the pinout of the connector of the docking station / port replicator for the old Toshiba Portege 3410CT.
Can somebody help me?
Thanks in advance.

The pin designations will more than likely be only found through a technical schematic or possibly from manual tracing of the connectors (if you know what you are doing).

Finding one for that motherboard ususally requires a certified company request to the manufacturer.

if you don't mind....what do you need that information for?

By the way what docking station are you using? You might be able to get it through them easier than through the mobo designer.

OK, I’ll tell you all the story, hopping that my English is good enough.
I am trying to build, entirely on my costs, a sort of “information screen” (looking like a simple kiosk) in a elementary school in a small village. This consist of a PC and a LCD large display behind a glass window. On the PC is running Internet Explorer loading a Web Site with the links to the info pages of interest, a number of games and a link to the Google. (There is a wireless connection to my router and from here to Internet). The input device have to be “reliable”, so I decided to use only a mouse (and a virtual keyboard on the screen for Internet surfing). For easy power management the PC is a laptop engine. Fortunately I got from a friend of mine an old Portege 3410CT with XP Home Edition ! But the Joystick-like mouse is not suitable. I have a Synaptics touchpad working on PS2 and a MSI USB wireless adaptor (stick). To avoid buying an USB hub (Portege has only one USB port) and a PS2 to USB adapter I need to know the PS2 (mouse) location in docking station connector.
Anyway, thanks for trying to help me. All the best.
