The software does not open when using a laptop with a docking station


nTop opens properly on an undocked Dell Precision laptop. However, the software does not work if connected to a Dell D6000 docking station utilizing USB Graphics.

Applies to:

  • nTop
  • Laptop
  • Dell Precision Mobile Workstations
  • Dell Docking Stations


Some docking stations utilize USB Graphic solutions that may interfere with discrete GPUs.


Some users can work around this issue by starting nTop on the undocked workstation and then connecting to the dock. However, a Dell Docking station with a Thunderbolt connection may offer a better experience. Visit the Dell troubleshooting guide for more assistance.
