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..

HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop


Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

You'd have to go into your Device manager and check to see if you can update or reconfigure the driver for the USB port you are using.Also if you've got another USB try switching to it. I'm sure you already have but, ya neva know!!!

When i keep this hub pluged and try to reboot,


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

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 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.
