USB Hub does not work

I'm not sure that this is the correct number of the laptop that I have having the problem with. I'm trying to solve a problem for a friend and I just remember that the laptop is a COMPAQ Presario. It is running under Windows 2000. The machine has only 1 USB port. I wanted to be able to connect a LEXMARK printer T73 and a Microsoft keyboard, both with USB. The printer was working fine for several weeks before I tried to add the keyboard. I purchased a Belkin Thumb Hub that gave me 4 hubs. I plugged in the Belkin device and received an indicator light that led me to believe that it was working. However, after I plugged in my printer and keyboard, neither the printer or the keyboard worked. I then unplugged the Belkin device and plugged in just my printer to the existing port (back to the way it originally was) and now the printer that had previously been working will not work any longer. I noticed that the Thumb Hub says it is for Windows XP -- nothing about Windows 2000. I don't know what to do to get the printer working again. I have not tried to reload the printer drivers. Thanks!

1. Ensure the USB port is 2.0
2. Connect the drive directly to the USB port on the computer system. Do not connect the drive to a USB Hub
3. Try a different USB port on your system
4. Disconnect all other USB devices except a keyboard or mouse.


You need to ensure you are using the recommended media list.
2. Make sure the drive is listed okay in Device Manager. To ensure this, right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. You should have a listing here for optical drive. Double click on the optical drive and make sure there are no yellow ! marks on the drive.
3. Get the latest Firmware updates available for your drive.
4. Make sure your System/Nero ASPI files are not corrupt. Go to Nero/Nero tool kit/Nero info tool. Click on the ASPI tab. In the arrow down tab, check both your system and Nero ASPI files. At the bottom, it should display ASPI is installed and working properly. If it does not, please get the latest ASPI update.


1. Make sure the power cable connect properly.
2. Try sticking a pin in the little hole next to the eject button on the drive. This resets the reset button for the drive to open again.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Correct me if I am off base.

You have a drive that is not a floppy.

You need a driver for this non standard drive that will operate under XP.

I presume you already checked with the manufacturer.

Go to and have them do a free scan of your system. They will provide a complete and free status report of your system. Spend time and consider all aspects of their report as relates to your complaint.

Let me know how you make out

Battery problems

It should fix the problem, did you make sure you got the right battery(correct model number etc? like a genuine OEM battery).

If that doesnt fix it, go into your control panel, power settings, and select the battery option.. and check how your laptop uses the battery when its not plugged into AC power.

If that doesnt fix it, then contact HP, if its still under warrenty, it might be the AC terminal thats going bad, and might need the computer serviced. BTW how old is the computer?

HP Pavilion DV400, USB ports not working after a pw failure

You can get surge protection for your phone line I have one that is part of my broadband filter from homebase its a bit late now but worth buying to stop this happening again.

The phone line gives you a nominal 50V but when a power spike occurs this can be passed onto the PC through the phone 2000 socket that the router or modem is connected to and then can fry components with upto 500V spikes for only a few milliseconds, it is worth putting surge protection on all your electrical appliances to prevent this happening.

N.B> a plug with a fuse is not enough protection this just gives you over current and is used to protect the supply from a faulty appliance a surge is voltage which is something else. So I suggest that you connect youe entire PC to a Belkin Power Surge supply or battery backup to prevent these random surges from affecting the PC as well.

Since the USB is only 5V that is given to the device to enable it to work and will only normally blow if you connect it to a 1394 mobo socket, you could try passing the USB to the PC via a hub in the hope this may give you some protectionm but I doubt it.

S video not working

This is what you need to do:
Connect the s-video from your computer to your tv input. (think you've already done that)
Go to display properties on your laptop (right-click Desktop and select Properties)
Go to Settings
rightclick the blue rectangle, with a number 2 in it and select attach
If needed you can change the resolution for the TV.
Then click OK
Now your computer is configured correctly.
Make sure you have selected the correct input on your TV.

Very Critical

Have you tried to delete that number? so your problem is all about that number? maybe capslock is on, or maybe your keyboard is damage. Try to buy a new outboard kyboard which is a USB type. Then reinstall your WINDOWS.
