HP Pavilion x360 Convertible / Not Connecting to HP TPA-B01 Docking Station

Pavilion X360 / TPA-B01
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I picked up a new Pavilion X360 notebook and looking to use my docking station to power my PC and connect to another HDMI display.

 

It does appear these are working together. I downloaded the driver to the HP TPA-B01 docking station, rebooted PC, etc...no luck.

 

Is this TPA-BO1 docking station not compatible with my laptop?

 

If not - I'm having a hard time finding other docking station options that:

- Connect at least one display and accept Ethernet cable 

- Most importantly -  will Power the Laptop when connected

 

Any feedback on the current docking station and then if not compatible,  suggestions for alternatives? Thank you!


Jim

Yes - thank you Banhien. That's exactly the one that I have and interestingly -- apparently USB-C powered connectors are not adaptable to any notebook with a USB-C port. (Sigh). Any idea why that is the case? Is it really just a ploy to make everyone buy proprietary versions and spend new money on new accessories with each new purchase?

 

That being said - even when selecting on my HP laptop -

there are not any associated/suggested powered docking accessories. Do i need to use an HP version or are there any others out there you or anyone else would recommend for me to try?

 

Thank you!!

@kroc0005 

 

The specs of yout machine is

 

   https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c06433512

 

It only has 1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (Data Transfer Only, 5 Gb/s signaling rate) port. That port works similar to other USB 3.1 ports. You can't charge your machine with that port nor connecting it to a monitor. I call it is a hopeless port.
