Laptop will not show external hard drive


You must precise your laptop, your Windows version and your external hard drive to get a precise answer.
If your laptop has USB 3 ports, and if your external hard drive was detected until you update Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, it is due to this Windows 8.1 update, in which Microsoft has replaced Intel USB 3 good drivers by Microsoft bad USB 3 drivers: the easiest solution is then to edit the bios of your computer and disable the USB xHCI mode.

My bios can not detect usb configuration why? my usb ports can not be Used?


If the BIOS cannot detect any USB ports then this laptop cannot have an USB port as a boot device, because the firmware BIOS does not support this.
The USB port is useable only when Windows is up and running when the USB driver is operating.

USB Mouse NOT Detected On Acer Aspire Laptop


lol no it has nothing to do with your bios. I'm surprised that if you know your way around a bios that you would head there. You need a driver for the mouse. In case you do know more than i am giving credit then here's what to do if you already have the driver. Go into device manager and delete anything under the mouse section that is not your touchpad. then plug the usb mouse back in.

I think, i am having a usb port malfunction. i just formatted my lg-ibm xnote lm50a with xp3 and installed all the drivers but all my usb ports don't function. it does not detect printers and mouse...


Hi,

Have tried installing the CHIPSET Driver for the Motherboard?

Check the device manager for any bang on the devices meaning either a driver is missing or a wrong or incorrect driver is possibly installed, unless a REX "x" is foung beside USB hub then that would mean that is it busted or damaged.

but it is unlikely to have a USB hub/port to be busted unless physically, install the chipset driver and check again make sure you restart the system after installing the CHIPSET driver to make sure that it is properly installed in Windows and that it will detect the USB ports in device manager.

USB drive problem


I had a client with this same issue. However, her issue was that the top left USB port would only accept flash drives. Your external harddrive is probably not getting enough power from your USB port. Try using two USB ports (you can get a connector for this) to power up the external harddrive.

My usb port being not detected


Try downloading usb 2.0 drivers from microsoft.

Also look for drivers for your usb device..

check in device manager under usb devices and see if there is any yellow exclamation points next to any devices.

If that doesn't work your only option is to get a PCMCIA card that does USB 2.0

USB powerloss?


As you have already stated that the port in question can run a standard optical mouse, the port seems to be working fine.

Sometimes the drivers for a USB device need to be installed for each USB port. Maybe you have installed these drivers for 3 of your 4 USB ports, but not for the one in question, result of which is the problem you face.
