Hi
In your device list, don't you see USB ports isntalled?
If not, you need to install them first.
And if you can't have them installed or recognized by windows, you should enable them from your BIOS setup.
In your Bios Setup, search for "On Board Devices" and go to "On Board USB" then change it to Enable if it's Disable.
Save changes, restart you computer, then wait for windows to log on and wait for the USB ports to be recognized by Windows. Finally try the Printer.
If the problem presets, you may need to buy a USB Card which is not expensive.

I would be more happy to help if any drivers needed.

Turn off wlan


If it has a USB connection, then connect it directly to one of your computer's USB ports. Then configure the printer as a local printer in Windows.

My acer aspire 5733Z-4851 donot read usb


That could be a problem with the USB connection on your motherboard. This is not a big issue, if you can you just open up your CPU and locate the USB connection on the motherboard. It is not clear to me whether it is the USB ports from the front panel or it is the USB ports that are on-board (usually found at the back). If it is the USB ports from the back, the one built - in on the board, then the BIOS has to be configured again to enable Plug and Play attributes. If the ports are from front then you need to follow the cable that connects the usb port to the mother board. Disconnect and reconnect. Or check whether it is actually connected to the right port on the motherboard. Usually it is written on the motherboard.

The usb ports on my acer aspire 5532 will not connect the printer cord or my webcam cord what should i do? there seems to be a problem with the connection, one minute it was working and the next the...


Here are a couple of simple steps to try...
1. try switching to the other USB connectors. Windows should detect the hardware on those ports and with Plug-and-Play, install the appropriate drivers.
2. If the above doesn't work, try powering off completely and then powering on again.
If you're still having problems, then you can troubleshoot using Windows Device Manager
1. click on start > Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager button
2. click + to expand on the devices that have red or yellow warnings beside them
3. right-click on the hardware/device in trouble and click on properties then on its troubleshoot button

Where is the printer port on my acer aspire 7551-2961?I did not get an user guide and am a lost senior citizen trying to communicate with my grandchild.MCV


Most printers now use the USB port instead of the older parallel ports that has several input/out pins. Some printers (new-out-of-the-box) do not come with the USB cable, therefore purchase one for your printer if it requires a USB cable. The computer should have more than one USB ports to plug into.

I am trying to hook up a new printer HP Deskjet 1050 J410 Series and none of my usb ports seem to be working. Do these ports manfunction due to age?


yes, unfortuantely they do wear out (in/out connecting) ..thats why i always suggest using a USB hub (retails for about $10-$15 or less) -- plug it into one USB port and leave it (if its a desktop, dont try this with notebook or you will forget its there and cause damage while moving it around, from one place to another)

-try blowing out the dust from the inside USB connection of your computer , try it again -- but buy a USB hub first ,, youc ant go wrong having this around

is it a desktop ? if so , buy a new USB card and replace the old one

if its a notebook -- bad news , you need to spend money to replace the USB ports or buy another mainboard

i hate to see this happen --

what model & Mfg is your computer ?

No, it's not the only way, if you have an unused PCMCIA port in your notebook. The width of the PCMCIA port is about the height of a credit-card, and the height of that port is about the thickness of a few credit-cards.

Purchase a PCMCIA adapter that has two or three USB ports.
Insert the PCMCIA adapter into the slot,
and connect your USB device to one of the USB ports.

I have a toshiba satellite A-135 laptop that will not recognize anything plugged into the usb ports


Check to see if one of the USB ports is damaged. Sometimes they can be damaged and have connections touching the outside metal of the port which actually grounds the connection and will cause the other ports to not work either. If it is connected then use a flat tip screw driver (*with the machine off and battery out*) to make it not touch the outside of the usb port and try "other" USB ports that aren't damaged and see if it works. If it doesn't then you are looking at needing a new motherboard. Locate your closest ASP and take in for service, you can find them at support.toshiba.com.
