You need to find out the make and model of your motherboard, go to the manufacturer's website and download vista device drivers for your motherboard - if they have them. If the board is pre-vista the manufacturer may not have vista drivers for it.

If you need help finding the make and model of your motherboard, go to this website - http://www.belarc.com/, download, install and run the program. It will give you all sorts of information on your system.

You have not mention what Operating system is on your PC.

For Windows OS XP, you just have to install at least XP Service Pack 2 or higher... and the USB 2.0 ports will function. For Vista & Win 7 OS, the USB 2.0 drivers is in the Operating System when you install Windows.

Hope it helps.

Usb port is not working in 1131 tx running on xp


You probably need to get the right drivers for XP.Even though XP may seem to have installed all or most of your devices you still should get the correct drivers starting with the chipset driver.Make sure you install the chipset driver first,then all the other drivers put out by the manufacturer.Go to their website and in support and drivers get ALL of the avaliable drivers for XP and update your drivers,especially the chipset.

''USB Device Not Recognised'' Error message keeps coming up...


Uninstall Vista because there are too many protections on software that used to work on XP. Vista was discontinued because of this. try installing XP service Pack 3. All your problems with anything in connection with Vista will disappear.

Reinstalled xp after Vista . USB port not working


Hi there,

The usb drivers are part of your chipset drivers, so lets try and get this sorted. The reason that they work in Vista, is probably because Vista has added support for your chipset and XP SP2 doesn't.

Try installing XP from scratch. First you need to completely wipe your hard drive. Use the XP boot disc, you need to delete the hard drive partition as well. This way, you will start with a RAW drive.

Set up a new partition, and let the XP disc format the drive with NTFS. Do NOT use quick format. Then let XP copy the files and install.

When XP has installed, get your internet set up, and download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5b33b5a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&DisplayLang=en

You will notice that Microsoft have written not to use if updating just one machine. Ignore this. The reason is because this is the FULL Service Pack, hence it being over 300MB.

Once you have SP3 installed, your system will restart. Open Windows Update, make sure you have this set to update all Microsoft products, then download all updates. Restart your system and check if your usb's are working.

If they are still not working, go to the laptop website and download the chipset drivers from there, but make sure you are downloading the drivers for XP. If not, then go to the Chipset manufacturer's website and download from there.

Let me know how you get on

Vista usb issue no inf file or corrupt


my only suggestion is that Windows Vista doesn't have the drivers for the USB port or it doesn't recognize it's there, I'd try downloading a driver off the internet, install it and see if that works

Hope this helps

New computer with Windows Vista


I have my HP OfficeJet T45xi working with Vista Ultimate. I used a cable coverter to switch to USB. I must install the printer with the USB cord unattached. Install as T40xi whose driver comes with Vista. Set to USB port 1 or 2. Plug USB into USB port 1 or 2 (only ones of six USB ports that worked for me). When Windows discovers the printer do not let it install the printer and tell it to not try again.

Works for me. Hope it helps you!

Problems with the USB hub on P5GD2, running Vista


So you mean that you change your OS from XP to Vista? Yeah it really wont work normal because the driver that you installed is not for VISTA compatible drivers. ANd also you cannot force to install an XP driver to a Vista OS. Try to look to google that MBR of your and find some compatible driver for your VISTA.
