Check if the wires connecting the USB port and the mainboard is in place. It may be loose due to transport or troubleshooting activities inside the CPU. Manufacturers usually label these wires. You can access it if you open your computer and look at the back (inside) of the front side of the CPU.

Dell 6420 laptop not recognizing USB ports while on docking station


Hello Jackie.

2 of youre USBs are USB 3. so you need to install the right drivers for USB 3.
Also you should check youre BIOS settings, if there is an option to enable "XHCI" support so enable it. (USB 3 needs this to work ).
regards Gue.

Message keeps popping up saying that the USB device is not recognized and then talked about it maybe have malfunctioned, but there is nothing plugged in to any of my USB ports.


Go into the BIOS. Disable the USB ports. Reboot. Message gone? Turn off. Check with flashlight if dustbunny, or foreign oject in port? Reboot- go back to BIOS. ENABLE USB. Reboot. GOOD LUCK!!

Is there a driver to allow sony micro vault 2.0gb on win 98?


Specs say it is compatible with Windows 98 SE. Also says no drivers are needed for it. Make sure your plug 'n play is enabled on your computer. Once it is enabled just plug the drive in & Win 98SE should install it. If it does not work then try a different usb port as maybe a port is bad. Hope this helps.

Unrecognised external drive


Hello Sir,

Here are a few things to try. If you have access to a secondary PC or laptop, try connecting your drive to it using a different USB cable. Also try unplugging your drive from the power outlet for a few seconds and then connecting it again. If it?s still not being recognized, Maxtor has a free utility called PowerMax (available at www.maxtor.com) that lets you run various tests on your drive till it identifies the problem.
Plus another thing to look at is if whether or not plug and play is disabled in the system Bio's. Course the easiest way to see if that is the case is to plug something else like a pen drive into the USB port and see if it is even working. It may also be that the USB port is not working or is disabled, or better yet your system has only a USB 1.0 port. In which the pen drive may work but it is not enough for the Ext. Hard Drive which requires USB 2.0.
But the remedy is to first try the drivers and software, then check to see in your hardware manager what USB you have, then if plug and play is enabled in the BIO's as well as what the USB setting is in the Bio's, and last but not least add a USB 2.0 PCI expansion card and try that.

Plz forget to comment....
Good luck!

Cherrs!!!!
