Question about Compaq Evo N1000C Notebook

1 Answer

USB port Whenever I plug anything into one of the USB ports the laptop reboots itself until I take it out. I tried updating the drivers I even got a USB 2.0 + IEEE1394 Combo CardBus Card and it still does it. It's my web cam, Thumb Drive, and my Wireless LAN USB Adapter. This problem has been going on for a year now..I think this laptop just doesn't like USB Hardware.. Please Help

    I reformated the hard drive. So far it just done it one time in the last two days..If it keeps it up I might have to take it to the shop and have the USB ports check like you said..

Why won't the right USB port recognize when I plug in my mouse?


Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
  1. Click the Start button. ClickControl Panel.
  2. ClickSystem and Maintenance.
  3. ClickDevice Manager.
  4. Double-clickUniversal Serial Bus controllersand check to see if all your USB ports, hubs and controllers are functioning correctly. Any devices not functioning will have a yellow exclamation mark in front of them.
  5. If Device Manager shows any USB ports, hubs or controllers are not functioning, check for updated drivers.

To Update the USB Port Driver

An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.
  • Watch a Video on Steps to Update Bios on Your Computer.
    1. When the update process is complete, your computer will restart again to load the operating system with the new driver version installed.

I have a sony vaio vgn-sz110 and my usb ports only work for two things..My camera and my ipod..It wont recognize anything else that is plugged into them. When I look in the device manager it says my USB...


Go to device manger and try updating the drivers for them or uninstall them and then reboot and let the OS reinstall the drivers for the USB root hub.

USB PORTS


does your usb mem stick have any light indicators? if yes , whenever you put you usb stick, does it light? if it lights are USB ports is still ok,  You just have to reformat or partition you USB stick.
(you can also try other devices like usb mouse or any usb devices that lights up when you connect it)

if there are no lights if you plug, or no indication that a power goes to your stick, its possible that your usb your are busted. if this is the case, if your laptop has a PCMIA slot, you can find a pcmia USB card, if you dont have. your only option is replace the  motherboard.

USB Ports Stopped Working


Well let me be the first to say I see you have skills. All of your troubleshooting is exactly by the book. The only thing I see that was not checked is the CMOS (BIOS) setup screen to make sure that the USB function is enabled there. Good luck and let me know how it goes, we have a couple of hundred years of experience at FixYa so keep me updated if you have any more problems.

USB Ports dont work!


Try deleting the USB controller in the system properties and rebooting. The system should reinitialize the hardware and reinstall the drivers, which should take place automatically.

USB ports don't recognize plug-ins


Latest BIOS and Chipset update would be very helpful to resolve the issue. Especially BIOS update contains very important fixes and enhanced functions. Latest release is 4/2/2007 dated. If yours older than this you can update. After BIOS update you can also update the chipset if issue persists. Here is the link for all drivers you need.
