I can't get my usb devices to work on my dell 4600 series pc. It won't reconise anything I try to plug in to the usb ports.


Try deleting your usb drivers.

Right-click My Computer
Manage
Device Manager
USB Controllers
Delete (Generic USB Hub)
Restart computer
(Windows will auto-install the drivers, on reboot)

Plug your device back in, and see i've it works.

THE CD/DVD PLAYER ON MY HP PAVILION a1110n WILL NOT PLAY ANYTHING. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS SPINNING BUT, IT MUST NOT BE READING. I TRIED TO UPDATE THE DRIVERS BUT, I STILL CAN'T GET ANYTHING TO WORK. THE...


First of all check if the drivers are properly installed in device manager:-
Right click on Computer and then click Properties--device manager, expand CD/DVD Rom drive and check if the driver is installed.
If driver is installed right click on it and click on delete and then restart the computer.

If the above step doesn't help then try to delete upper/lower filter in registry:-
Click Start--Run type 'regedit' and press enter and now expand the following-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
now on the right panel right click the 'upper filter' and click delete and then right click the 'lower filter' and then click delete.

If these steps doesn't help then it means there is a hardware fault with your dvd/cd drive and you need to replace the same.

If your device is not listed in Device Manager, it is not recognized by your computer. You need to install a new device driver manually.

  2. Start the shortcutcold.gifAdd Hardware Wizard.
  3. Click Next, and wait for Windows to search for Plug and Play hardware. Most newer hardware is Plug and Play, so you will rarely need to go beyond this step.
  4. If no Plug and Play hardware is found, a list of hardware types appears. Click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
  5. Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list, and then click Next.
  6. In the Common hardware types list, click the appropriate hardware category, and then click Next.
  7. In the Manufacturers list, click the manufacturer of your hardware, and then in the Models list, click the model name.

    Or, click Have Disk if you have an updated or third-party driver to install for your hardware.
  8. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

That is a common thing with the early win 98 os and newer hardware.

You really should consider an upgrade to at least 98SE or even WINDOWS ME.

The machine will struggle with USB 2.0 and you are open to a whole lot of little glitches

If I plug it into the laptop it makes the sound when a USB device is plugged in. It says found new hardware, then it wants to install the hardware with the Wizard all goes well until the wizard tells


It seems the Operating System does not have drivers for your new device or some portion of the drivers are corrupted. If you have the drivers cd for the USB stuff, install the drivers without attaching it to the pc ok. Attach the device when prompted or when completed. Make sure that any previous installations of the software and/or the device should be uninstalled. Good luck

Keyboard, mouse, front USBs,DVD recorder not working


It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.

Why won't this dell 4600i load any software drivers?


When you download drivers from Dell and execute the file, it normally extracts the drivers to C:\Dell\Drivers and then the folder corresponding to the hardware. If you go to My Computer and do a right click on it and select properties and a window will open with 'System Properties' on it.Select the hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. A list of all of your hardware will come up. If you click on the little cross next to DVD/CR-ROM drives and then do a right click on the drive that's not working and select update driver. Where it says can windows connect to windows update select no, not this time and then next. Then select install from a list or specific location and next. If you then select include this location and enter in the box C:\Dell\Drivers, click on next and hopefully it should find the drivers.
Sometimes the Dell download will start a utility to find the drivers from the internet for you and install them. One way or the other, this should hopefully solve your problem.

WIndows XP won't install/ recognise new hardware


Ok firstly can you see the DVD drive in BIOS or any USB Devices Within Bios ?

If yes , we have just solved your problem to both your USB and DVD Drive problems , it being windows , it is failing to communicate device anomalies and is failing to handle device operations.

If the answer was no , you most probably have a faulty motherboard and the problem in question is most likley the south bridge , this is responsible for handling plugged in devices , IDE devicesUSB controller etc.. and communicating with the CPU

On another note in windows you could try one of two things:

1. Completly remove existing drivers , including the chipset and USB control drivers and reinstalling them , then rebooting and trying it all again

or

2. Reinstall the Windows OS and test your devices once more

I Hope this will solve your issues
