Take apart the PC and check the connector from USB bort to motherboard.
If the connector is ok then there is a bad contact either on the prot or on the motherboard.

Help! XP stopped recognizing my external hard drive. It has worked fine for two years and then suddenly: My Laptop no longer "dings" when I plug in the external hard drive. There are no unknown...


No question is silly dear, problems are there and we are in this site to help.

Yes, you mentioned that the said device works fine with your desktop, then it is probably not the problem with your device. You have also said that your tried formatting the os. Good.

Hope your pc, laptop and the memory device are disinfected with a good, licensed and updated antivirus.

Check, if Universal Serial Bus Controllers (corresponding to the nos. of total usb port present in the machine) are present and enabled both in the device manager and the bios as well and set to Hi-Speed if it is Full-Speed.

Well, have you tried formatting the memory stick/device? Format it and see if it works.

Next, please change the usb connectivity cable using/attached to the device and see.

Another thing while connecting an external storage device like ext-hdd. The external usb storage devices that gets connected with a usb cable, in some rare cases needs to be connected as a usb-master or usb-slave [you can see many external usb drives comes with a splitted or dual usb port connector cable, this is either for connecting two usb device or to connect as master when used as a single drive], therefore use such cable to connect and use alternated ports, and see which works.

Now, if all above fails, it then might be the problem with your external drive, i guess.

Best to seek help of your system admin/vendor.

Need drivers for toshiba external hard disk s/n: 0214060603 - for operating system win xp service pack 3 please


There is no need for any drivers for an external Hard Disc unless you are using Win98 or an older version.XP / Vista and Win7 are all plug and play enabled. As soon as you plug a healthy device into your USB port a pop up notice will come and after a few seconds the system will recognize the device and becomes fully functional.
Confirm on another PC if the device is OK

USB port is faulty we cannot work


I am assuming that there are other USB ports on your notebook that are working and that all of them are occupied. If this is correct, you can purchase a USB hub that will expand a single USB port on your notebook to a larger number of ports. You may need to have a powered hub depending on the devices that you are connecting. USB hubs are not expensive (under $10). Hard drives, CD/DVDs and other power users will probably require a powered hub.

An example of a USB hub can be found at: http://3btech.net/sublfopopous.html

This is not a product recommendation, but an example of what a hub is and how it could help your situation. You can find many other choices by searching for "USB hub".

It is also possible that your USB port has become disabled and needs to be re-enabled through Windows. Look at CONTROL PANEL; SYSTEM; DEVICE MANAGER; UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. Then examine each one listed to verify that the system thinks they are working correctly. If not, you can take appropriate action from the tabs on that window.

USB2 Problem Windows thinks My card is USB1.1


what do you mean when you say that the 4 USB2 ports are all occupied?
when you say that there are 2 USB1 ports on the back of the case: are those ports connected to the motherboard at all?

what devices are you using to test your USB ports? is it possible that those are USB 1 devices?

Probem with Asus P5W DH waking back up


Do you have a modem plugged into phone line - is a signal on phone line causing it (unplug phone line cable to try that).
Could be faulty power switch on front of computer where the contacts are only a hairs breadth apart and the slightest movement/vibration causes it to contact (try this by disconnecting those two wires from the motherboard

I'd try disconnectng any communication cables from the computer first. That would be LAN and Modem cables. If it still restarts, disconnect the keyboard and power down the PC. If it still restarts, then power down again before it is fully off, remove the mouse. If it still does it get a priest to do an exorcism

I need to add a hard drive to my HP a1220n Pavilion for Photoshop and other Graphic programs. How can I do it if there is no available slot? Please help.


Hi,

A desktop PC would normally have capacity for 4 IDE devices such as 1 CD/DVD, 3 HDs or any combination limited to a total of 4. Additionally, most current PCs have 2 SATA connection points. If for some reason all are occupied and hence your post "no available slot", you may want to consider using an external storage device attached via any USB port of your PC.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Usb i think??


Did you check your MP3 player? It may have caused the damage to the USB port... If so, then you need to buy a USB card to have a another USB port.
