Question about Sharp Actius AL27 Notebook

1 Answer

USB Ports on AL27 only work with printer and external hard drive.

The USB ports worked great until I got hit with a virus. A local computer store had to reload Windows XP Home Edition. The computer works well, except for the fact the USB ports no longer function as they used to. The ports now allow me to plug in an external hard drive and my printer; but the ports don't recognize either a wireless mouse or a mouse pluged into the lap top on a USB Port. Is there a way to fix the ports so that they recognize the mouse? Sharp AL27.

I fixed the problem by going to "Device Manager," then to the "Universal Bus". Under "Universal Bus" are a list of the individual USB ports. You have to delete each one individually. When you delete each one, a window opens up which gives you various headers; select "drivers" and hit "uninstall". When you hit "uninstall", windows will ask if you want to proceed. Select "Yes". You'll then get a "warning" that the computer may not work correctly if do this procedure. You want to proceed with the deletion of each Universal Bus port. Once you've removed the Universal Bus ports, then reboot windows. Windows will detect the individual Bus ports and find new drivers for them. Once the drivers are installed (automatically by Windows), the USB ports will be operational.

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.

If you are talking about an external hard drive or external usb device that you put into one of the usb ports it might be bad. You could try a different usb port. Also try using it on another computer.

If it does not work on a different usb port or another computer then it's definitely bad.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

Well the best thing to do is to start testing your hardware, you could have a problem with your hard drive, or your ram, or your video card, or your usb ports or cable's. You can make diagnostic cd's easily by using these free downloadable utilities:
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html This utility is a classic and works great for testing the ram in your computer.

http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ This is a seagate hard drive diagnostic utility that works on all types of hard drives to test that part of your computer.

http://mikelab.kiev.ua/index_en.php?page=PROGRAMS/vmt_en This is a video card testing bootable image.
If those pass, you can disable the usb ports on your computer from your bios potentially, and or crack open your computer and disconnect them if they are connected to the motherboard with cables :)

Usb ports not working


Go into the bios and check to make sure the usb ports are enabled if that is an option. Reboot the computer and notice the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit the key and look through the bios for settings that affect the USB ports.

If you computer recognized the devices in the past it should recognize them now unless the drivers are messed up or missing, or the ports have gone bad.

If you are using usb devices that you have not used before on the computer then try one of your old usb devices that you have used before on the computer. It could be that the new usb devices are too advanced for the system. Some old systems for example can't read or detect a 1TB usb external drive.

If the usb device came with drivers, install the drivers.

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.
