USB port is used to plug external devices such as pen drives and other supported devices.. first of all there exist two usb ports: 1.0 and 2.0 . so when you connect your devices via usb, make sure that you have the 2.0 port for faster transfer rate.it is also a way to add more devices to your pc without having to unscrew anything.there are plug and play devices and non plug and play devices which require specific driver

Can i use different usb ports? How?


Yes you can unless you have a conflict with another USB device. Simply try another usb port. If that does not work try a usb hub.. also remember most computers have usb port on the front of the computer as well as the back of the computer.

Lenovo usb port replicator problems power surge


You probably have a fried board in the port rep. after a power surge. Fixing it will probably cost you more that getting a replacement. Other option is to find a used one.

Keyboard and touchpad not working on macbook a1181 but power botton work fine


I've found the same problem - keyboard, touchpad and mouse buttons not responsive - and was almost ordering a new KB/touchpad replacement, thinking they were bad. I searched the internet and found that people had already done that with negative results. Studying the KB/touchpad circuit board I found that the controller was a USB device. So I had an idea, why not test it using one external USB port. I soldered the proper wires to a USB plug and connected it to a side USB port and, voil?!, it worked. Then, I removed 2 inductors from the original D+ and D- lines to isolate the KB/touchpad connector and soldered 2 pieces of wire to one of the side USB ports - in sequence, I covered that port with a small aluminum plate to avoid it being used for another device. Reassembled the computer and everything is working fine, back to normal (with one less USB port, of course).

What port do I use for printer on Aspire 5553. I have a new Aspire laptop and want to plug in my old printer but am not sure which port to use.


Chances are if you're printer's too old it'll use an LPT port, or parallel port. Your laptop you do not have an LPT port (it would look like this) http://electronicsuk.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/parallel.jpg If that's the port that's coming out of your printer, you'll need one of these: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=LPT+to+USB+adapter&biw=1909&bih=854&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=1660719598718154490&sa=X&ei=s-74TeqQO8bdgQeu-_GXDA&ved=0CF8Q8gIwAg However, if there's a place on your printer that looks like this: http://zone.ni.com/cms/images/devzone/tut/b/248893b9164.jpg (left one is more likely), then you can use a USB cable. Just go into any radio shack or the like and ask for a USB B cable. Make sure one end is flat (like the right ports in the last pic) and one end is square (like the left ones).

Is there in built web in my laptop M465E gateway. if not then tell me how to attach my logitech web cam with it.


There is a WLAN, a wireless internet connection card for this computer and connecting your webcam should be as easy as plugging it into your USB port and using the disk it came with to activate it. If the picture is correct on this question, you need an adapter from you local computer store. The adapter will likely be about 5 to 20 dollars, and this will allow you to plug it into a USB port after you attach the adapter.

It appears that the ethernet connection from the laptop to the replicator is bad.
This will likely need to be serviced by a qualified Acer repair facility.
Your other option (likely cheaper too) is to simply get a USB ethernet connector to use when it's docked.

Remember the help below is only a fix for seeing the error message not for overdrawing the port.



To stop overdrawing the port you need to either use a power supply or a double USB cable.

Click on START, Click on CONTROL PANEL, Double-click on the SYSTEM icon, Click on the HARDWARE tab, Click the DEVICE MANAGER button, Click the "+" next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the selection.,Right-click and select PROPERTIES on the Intel® USB UNIVERSAL HOST CONTROLLER (not the USB Root Hub),Click the ADVANCED Tab, Check the box that says: "Don't tell me about USB errors"
