First off your BIOS must have a "Boot to USB Hard Drive" option available. Then you need to configure the drive boot order; USB-HD -> CD -> IDE -> SCSI. Then the micro-drive must be formated with the "Boot" or "Active" partition flag enabled. If you are trying to boot Ubuntu there are several tools you can download that format the USB drive and set the boot flag for you.

Hi i have an acer laptop 5000 series the usb ports will not work saying power surge overloaded,would buying a usb card solve the problem.Any help would be much appreciated.


Hi,
are you using windows xp sp2, this issue normally occurs with it
a fast fix is:
go to start menu> run > type in devmgmt.msc > ok

1) Device Manager will open

2) Locate "Universal Serial Bus controllers" in the list and expand

3) Select the first USB Universal Host Controller.

4) Right click and select "Properties"

5) Go to the "Advanced" tab

6) Check "Don't tell me about USB errors"

7) Click "OK"

Note. If you have multiple host controllers then they should all be affected by the above action.

8) Close Device Manager

further Queries are welcome

Acer Orbicam does not work anymore


Sounds like a driver went astray.
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Keyboard and mouse not working


Hi,

Just passing by, and i saw your concern about your pc.

sounds like you might have a posible glitch on *********** board.
the message "start set up 12" means the mother board supporting soft ware may be encountering issue.

a simple reset on what we call BIOS might solve this.

Locate the mother board manual and look for the BIOS reset jumper, in some cases just carefully remove the battery then leave it for 2 or 5 min to tottaly reset the bios. its alittle risky cause you might break the battery holder, so go with the jumper setting. and dont forget to place it back to its original position.

Hope it helps!
