USB-device is not recorgnised

One of the USB devices is not recognised on my Compaq nc6220. This without having any external USB device connected to one of the 3 standard USB ports. Windows XP professional SP3 is installed.
rigth after startup, the balloon in the right lower corner starts up, and this repeats every 10 seconds. clicking the the balloon, the error window starts up, specifiying the location of the not recognized device in bold. (this window however remains white, and nothing is specified)
After half an hour to 45 minutes, the computer starts bieping. can this be so that there is a hardware / shortcircuit problem?

    the fact that we have the same rather new software - damned sp3 - mkes me hope this is perhaps driver related. wishful thinking? :S

    with me it's an external hard disk that is recognized on other computers

    'someone have a clue?

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

My samsung HM160HI external harddrive is not recorgnised by my laptop.I have tried different laptops,PCs and cables with the same results.This harddrive have been working 100% for the past year.


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

The emachine model KAWE0 is with operating system windows xp sp1 doesnot recognise any usb device.


Good day sir, hi, usually its one or two ports that does not recorgnise a usb device, but if all ports does not recognise the usb device, check the CMOS setup. check this out;
  • one or two ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a local fault, try to check the CMOS setup, this could also be the port itself is the faulty one having loose connection.
  • all ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a system fault, check again the CMOS setup if the USB port is enabled, check the USB device itself also. to make sure use another pc to test the usb device.
A computer virus can also cause the usb port to malfunction, run an anti virus software, if possible you can reinstall the XP and test the USB port afterward.

If all else fails, you can buy a USB card and plug it on the expansion slot on your PC.
