Primary usb port


USB thumb drives give you the ability to mobilize information, but they also have the power to act as a boot disk for both Windows and Mac computers. If you have a bootable thumb drive that you want to boot your computer from, you can easily set it up in the BIOS menu of your Windows computer or through the boot menu in Mac's OSX.

Plug your USB thumb drive into the computer. Boot the computer and follow the on-screen prompt to enter the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) menu. You should "Press a certain key Usually the DEL or the F2 key to enter BIOS setup" or something similar when you turn your computer on. Follow the directions to enter the BIOS menu. Scroll over to the "Boot" menu in the BIOS screen. Change the primary boot device to USB port or something similar depending on your BIOS menu. Restart the computer with the USB thumb drive in the USB port. b> Mac b> Plug your USB drive into your Mac's USB port. Turn on the computer while holding down the "Option" button on your keyboard. Wait for the boot menu to appear with all of your bootable devices shown. Use the mouse to select your USB thumb drive from the boot menu. Wait for the computer to boot using your thumb drive. Hope this helps.

Keys not responding on my hp laptop


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Is it all keys that are not working or some keys?

Go to control panel, click on the keyboard icon. Click hardware. Check device status and make sure it says "This device is working properly".

Restart the computer and try again. If problem persists, then it means you might end up replacing the keyboard.

But before then, you can get an external keyboard (USB). You can be using this pending the time you replace the keyboard.

Or you can use on-screen keyboard. Click start > Accessories > Easy access > On-screen keyboard. Or click start,under search, type in"on screen keyboard", then press enter.This will take you straight to on-screen keyboard.

I hope the above information is clear.

Regards.
Walesarumi.

Hp pavilion dv 6000 keyboard not responding.Some of the keys will not respond at all. I checked the drivers and tried to update, but says most current installed. It has been doing this for about 6 months....


You need to check in the BIOS if the keys when typed does make beeping noise. Set BIOS defaults.
If the keys are still not working than boot the sys to the recovery manager and press ctrl+d to open the CMD box and test the key board there.
Boot the sys 3 times to BIOS and set BIOS defaults,
If it doesnt work try the latest update and drivers for the sys. If it doesnt work that means the keyboard needs to be repaired

Can you pull all data off of it? Is it still under warranty? If not find a computer on e-bay, pull the hard drive out of it and reinstall your hard drive in the new computer, buy an external 2 1/2 inch hard drive enclosure enclosure for the hard drive from the new computer. Thre is more than likey mother board problems.

My computer screen is stuck on hp logo nothing including key is responding my computer is stuck on hp invent screen.... it wont go past that, doesnt respond to f8 or esc. HELP


Sounds like a faulty hard drive that is locking up the system. Take out the hard drive completely and turn on the computer and see if it goes past the HP screen. If it does then the hard drive is bad. If it still locks up on you then reseat the memory one stick at a time in one slot at a time. If this doesnt work then you might be having motherboard issues.

Try these things and let me know what happens and I'll help you further.

Key board not responding


Try attaching an external keyboard to a USB port on the computer. If it works.

The keyboard cable is probably loose.

Keys dont work.alternative way to change brightness?


Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.
