My toughbook does not recognise USB memory


Please follow the steps as mentioned below
  • 1 Shut down your computer the proper way if possible, via your "Start" menu. If your system is completely locked up, however, then press your PC's power button and hold for 5 to 10 seconds, and your computer tower will turn off.
  • 2 Unplug your computer - this is a very, very important step! Unplug your PC from its power supply. This will typically be the uppermost black cord at the back of your tower. For a notebook or laptop, remove the computer's battery and then un-pug its cord from the laptop. It is not enough to switch off your surge protector - you must unplug the cord from your laptop.

  • 3
  • Wait for at least 30 seconds after all you computer and Internet equipment is unplugged. This will allow enough time for any residual power to drain out of your different devices. You can speed up the process as you wait, by pressing the power button on your unplugged computer, which will help to drain all the power that is left over in your PC's motherboard.
  • 4 Now reconnect all the Device and check the issue should be resolved. Please try connecting the USB device directly to the Computer's USB port.

  • Hope this should resolve the issue.. Please get back if the issue still persist.

    Thank you. Bye

    Can only connect to the internet wirelessly for about 2-3 mins before signal drops off and can't get it back. Router is new last month and started noticing usage issues last week. On the face of the router the airport bars are constantly flashing. Is my router dead or is there something I can do to remedy this issue?


    I'd start off with a hard reset by holding down the reset button down in the back of the router for 15 seconds, I usually cut the power, hold the button down for 15 seconds, power it back on, wait another 15 seconds, THEN I release the button.
    That will set everything back to default. Once you've got the router up and running again I would check D-Links support page to make sure you've got the latest firmware version.
    That should address your issue, if not, contact D-Link support for an RMA ;)

    My 2001 Mitsubishi Medallion recently stopped recieveing HD channel from my FIOS HDTV Box. When switching from standard channels(they work) to an HD channel, the screen shows scrambled mutltiple images and sound. Then goes to a Blue color screen with no sound. Please help.


    If the TV works in the "Other" modes than I would suspect, that the FIOS HDTV box has developed some fault. When a TV goes to a "Blue Screen" this means that it cannot interpret a proper signal, maybe you need to reset the FIOS, anyway check that out, the TV itself, I do NOT think is faulty, check connections, antenna and to TV as well. Unplug ALL from wall wait 5 mins, and power back up, this often fixes a lot or problems.

    R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.

    i can't access ther router using 192.168.0.1


    Hi Wafula,

    Unplug the Dlink, wait 2 min, and plug it back in. If that work, on the back is a small hole, marked RESET. Using a pencil, or straightne out a large paperclip, press that the button inside gently. Hold it for 30 sec. Release and unplug the unit. Shut down the whole network. "Starting from the wall", power up the modem, wait 2 min, power up the Dlink, and power up your machine. Your Dlink should be at default now. Remember to reset you security, change the password, etc.
    I have had to do this several times, sometimes unplugging the power, and plugging it back while holding the button. (Got 3 hand?)
    Good luck!
