Port Replicator Power Overload
If power shut downs occur intermittently when using PCMCIA-2 devices via a port replicator, suspect an over-current problem. Some PCMCIA devices use more power, if the maximum usage of each device occurs simultaneously, the total current will exceed the limit, thereby causing a power shut down. Isolate this problem by removing one of the devices, and use the computer under the same condition to see whether a power shut down occurs. Do this procedure for all devices, then determine the cause. Use of the larger AC Adapter (50W, optional) is recommended, if one is not yet in use.
