Question about HP Compaq nc6220 Notebook
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?
Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
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
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
