How to undock Dell Latitude D410?

Early this morning I'm working with one of our laptop in the office. It's been a while since the last time I've used the docking station for a laptop. Before I go on with my story, let me give you a link about docking station so you know what I'm referring to.

So I place my Dell Latitude D410 in the docking station to test the DVD drive. When I about to remove it, I have no idea how to get it done. I focus on pushing the button in the left side of the docking station but no success. I told myself, I don't need a brain surgery to figure this out.

Well, 10 minutes later I'm still looking a way to get it done. Hmm, search the Internet for information but most links I've clicked are all about Dell specifications and promotional links. This is the reason I wrote this blog, to help other techie out there to get the answer right away.

To find the answer of my own. I've used my hands to slide on all sides and viola. I've found the un-latch lever that nicely blend on the docking station of Dell laptop. You will be able to see it left upper-corner of the docking station if you are facing your computer.

Hope this help you save your 10 minutes looking for this information through the Internet.
Cheers for now.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
