Connect docking station to pc

Level 7

I have built a pc and I have single monitor connected to the pc. There is only one hdmi slot in the mother board. I have ASUS : ROG MAXIMUS Z690 motherboard. I also have a laptop with it I am using a dell docking station which has dual monitors, keyboard, webcam and microphone connected. Can I use this docking station with pc so that I can use all these accessories for the pc like how I use all these with laptop? I have ASUS : ROG MAXIMUS Z690 mother board.

Hi @Vasangce 

I think that largely depends on the docking station. The newer DELL variants are USB C, have you attempted to connect it to the system?

Yes I tried connecting to one of the usb c port to the desktop but it was not working. Should I add an external PCIe card to connect docking station?

Which dock? You may have to consult DELL. Enter Device Manager and check for any flags.
