HP Pavilion d4000 (d4495.se-a) cant find or see the USB ports, have reinstalled XP home, new backupbattery, check with Pd-doctor 3.0 -result test 4 CPU processor test, CPU Number 2 (Apic ID 01H) CPU...


You could easily pick up an aftermarket USB PCI card, which will give you 2-4 USB ports that have their own logic chip. These are quite easy to install and very inexpensive.
Another option would be a front-mounted USB hub, which would attach to the USB header on your mainboard. They come in 3.5" size (to go in a floppy drive slot) or 5.25" for CD/DVD size slots.
Either of these should work fine as long as the rest of the PC is OK. If not, they are pretty much universal, so you could put in your next computer. (if it didn't work).
Good luck!

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

I have kingston 4GB pen drive which is malfunctioned & getting error unknown device click this message for assistance in solving problem..please help..


This is a very common problem with external devices. Sometimes, you connect it and it would work fine and other times it may not.
All you need to do is to change the USB port to which it was connected to another one. Also, it might require you to connect the device and restart the computer. This is sure to work. If it doesn't, then you may have to call a technician.
Hope this helped?

My USB Ports don't work. Is this just a plug and play to replace or do I need to purchase a new CPU.


is it only one or all usb ports that doesn't work. Check your device manager and see if the Usb device are still working or the computer is able to detect it. If it is, and is able to detect and display your Usb ports then they should be working alright. There has been a virus that been going on lately that cause the computer not to read device detected to the usb ports since I had this same promblem before and it wasn't a hardware issue, but a viral issue. Had to run the latest definition and then formated my laptop to factory default.

I have purchased a new one Kingston 16GB Data traveler 101, but this not working . How can you solve my problem. pksharmadps@yahoo.com


Insert it into the USB port, at rear of your computer or if you are using a laptop try different ports.
Now if your computer/laptop works with other USB devices, then we can assume that USB Support has been enabled in the BIOS/CMOS.
Double click on My Computer while the USB drive is in your computer/laptop. Right click on the USB Drive and select format. If you do have information on your drive it will be lost!!! Do a backup first.
Format your drive using either FAT32 or NTFS, if NTFS is available then use it as it is a better Allocation table format.
If this procedure can't be done, navigate to the control panel and Double Click Administrative Tools.
Now double click Computer Management. Under the storage field, select disk management.
Select your USB FLASH DRIVE, Right Click and select format.

Your drive should be ready for use.
If it is still not detected you could try it in a friends computer/laptop.
Alternatively you can take it back to the company/person that you bought it from as it may fall under warranty/guarantee.

Best Wishes!
Thanking you

I have a 1g Lexar usb key it doesn't work. My computer doesn't reconise it plus the light on the key doesn't flash anymore... pls help as i have my good photo's on it


It could be your USB port that's not working. Try inserting your flash drive into a different USB port. It is possible that the line connecting the USB port was accidentally removed or loosened inside your CPU. You can also try opening your CPU and fix the connections of the front panel wires to the motheboard.

Kingston DTI/512 DataTraveler USB 2.0 not detected when pluugged into USB port on my HP 6910 laptop but works on other HP's and other PC's


This MAY be a problem of the age of your operating system.

For instance, all USB devices have to have the Drivers installed in a Windows 98 and earlier system (because there were no USB devices back then and therefore no drivers were available to be included in the operating system).

Your Operating System may need to have the drivers installed as well, whereas the other computers that you have tried it on may have later operating systems, with preinstalled drivers in their systems, and therefore recognise the USB device and automatically install the drivers when the unit is installed.

Did your unit come with a disk? Then try installing the drivers from that disk and see if this fixes your problem.

If it doesn't, have you tried different USB ports on your computer to see if it is just a problem with the ports?

Good luck
