I can't plug the power cable into the power port!

I went to plug the power cable into the laptop as per usual and it would not push into the port. On closer examination, two "prongs" have appeared in the port which prevents the cable from being plugged in. Any ideas what on earth has happened and what I should do?

Hook up to home pc


Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.

Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.

If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.

Someone gave me a wireless g router and im not sure how to connect it to my computer and modem?


First, since this router was used by someone else, you'll need to reset it. After you plug the power in, push in the little button on the back (you'll probably have to push it in with a pencil or pen). Hold it in for about 15 seconds until the power light on the front begins to blink.
Now you're ready to hook up the router. The router probably has 5 ethernet ports on the back. The ethernet cable that comes out of the modem goes into the WAN port on the router. This is the one port that is separate from the others. The computer has an ethernet cable that is currently plugged into the modem. Disconnect it from the modem and plug it into one of the 4 remaining ports on the back of the router.
Now the router is in the middle. Modem connected and computer connected.
If you have a cable modem, you'll need to unplug it for about 15 seconds and plug it back in. Trust me on this--you just have to do that. If the cable modem also powers your phone, you'll need to take the battery out of the modem and then put it back in.
Now turn on your computer. You should connect to the internet. If not, the router will need some setup, but unless I know more details, I can't help you. You'll just have to ask again.

500 gb passport beeps and wont recognize


This may be due to a lack of power. Unfortunately, the drive does rely on power from the laptop/PC. If you're using it with a laptop, try it on a desktop PC and plug it into a port at the back (the front USB ports are hubs and generate less power). Make sure you're using the original short USB cable (hopefully) supplied with the product.

When you initially connect it and you hold it in your hand, you may fell the drive spin up and then spin down, which is also a sign of insufficient power.

I have heard of this problem with the passport drives and this mostly solves it. If it does and you do need it for a laptop, then you would need a USB Y cable (2 type A to 1 mini 5). This provides power from 2 USB ports...

Hope this helps!

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub


sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

Dell 8100 ethernet will not connect off the port replicator


Let me give it a try ...

There are a few possibilities but i'll cover 2 of them :
1. There is a program that comes with your DELL that will save battery life by turning off your Network Card (LAN) I forgot what is the program name. But usually when you plug the power cable out, there will be notification at bottom right corner of your screen that told you so.

2. I don't know if your port replicator connected to power adapter (is port replicator = docking ?). The fact that your LAN connected when it's on port replicator make my first conclusion more acceptable. Since port replicator got it's own power adapter, it will just turn the LAN on.

Now if you want to check if thats the cause, just plug your notebook to it's power adapter/charger and plug your LAN Cable in. If it works than the problem is the nasty program from DELL.

If you want to disable the program just go to Startup Tab at msconfig and disable (clear the check mark) for that nasty program

Hope it helps

Simpletech 500 gb external hard drive


There is a power consumption work-around untill a Y usb wire can be purchased; the main power cable must still be used at all times but this workaround should only remain temporary!!!
Simpletech should have included this so laptop users could use the drive as their capacity is better than the packaged slimmer simpletech portable backup drives for laptops, which does include the Y cable....
1) unplug usb while powered and unknown hardware is present on laptop...
2) turn power switch off from the external HDD...
3) return power switch to on from the external HDD...
4) plug in usb connection to laptop...
Autoplay should read from external HDD!!!
**** Save some $$$ and buy a Y shaped cable to provide sufficient amount of power from laptop usb
ports, cause it's necessary to use 2 of your ports to provide power in addition to the main power from HDD to wall****

HP L7580 just went blank ??


Does it make any noises or signs of life if you cycle the power?

Is this unit mains powered or does it run from the USB cable only?

If USB only try another USB port on your PC

If mains powered, check the outlet still has power, the cable is plugged into the back of printer. Some printers have a clip out PSU (usually a rectangular box that the mains cable goes into) push it in firmly as it may be loose (you may be able to clip it out and re seat it completely - ensure mains is OFF first). Check the on/off switch is in the correct position, try powering up when not connected to the PC.

Post back results so I may try and assist further.

Usb problems


Due to current (amperage) limits of batteries, most laptops have VERY small current caps on USB ports. Some desktops can have 1-2 amps per USB port, but laptops are often limited to 300 to 500 milliamps. This is sufficient for most memory sticks/pen drives, but many USB devices need much more power than that. For example, external USB-HDD cases for 2.5 inch hard drives will need 100-200 mA ABOVE the rating of the HDD, which is usually 500-750 mA. Few laptops can provide that much current, or will initially provide enough to spin up, but get errors or fail to mount due to lack of power. If your USB device has a secondary power jack, use it with a 5 volt AC power supply with the correct jack polarity and current rating. You can also try a "double harness" USB cable, which plugs into the laptop with TWO USB jacks, and into the USB HDD case with one (the third) jack. This allows TWO USB ports to "double" the available current for the USB device. Best to get the specs on your laptop, see what your USB current limits are, before doing this. If each port is limited to 300 mA and your HDD is 500 mA, you will be OK, but if the HDD is 750 mA, the total of 600 mA is not going to spin up the drive.
