I recently have a docking station for my HP6570B
My note book does not have battery and use it without battery as the docking station does not turn the laptop on and it has no reaction I wonder if I have to use battery alongside with the docking station or there is a problem in the docking station?
furthermore I need to know does docking station charges the battery during the time laptop is connected to it or not?

What is your docking station ? Are they (notebook and dock) compatible ?

The thing is when I connect the docking to my laptop it does not charge the laptop battery and when I remove the laptop battery and connect the docking to it the docking does not turn on so the laptop

for sure you have a Power Supply connected to the Docking Station.
how many watts the docking Power supply is able to provide ?
If I'm not wrong it should be at least 120W in order to provide power to both the Docking and 6570b.
Check if you are using a 120W power supply connected to the Docking station.
