    but the chipset drivers are really not installing they are saying some configuration error or something like that?

  • rulesvarun Dec 19, 2008

    and tell you 


    by the way the freh install did not help...
    i have the same problem
    the USB port dot recognize anything and the drivers dont load
    .there cant be any hardware problems too


    what i am going to try is to installl  Vista ..on c drive  windows  xp on D drive and then see if USB's work in XP if they do i will uninstall vista.

Hi there,

The usb drivers are part of your chipset drivers, so lets try and get this sorted. The reason that they work in Vista, is probably because Vista has added support for your chipset and XP SP2 doesn't.

Try installing XP from scratch. First you need to completely wipe your hard drive. Use the XP boot disc, you need to delete the hard drive partition as well. This way, you will start with a RAW drive.

Set up a new partition, and let the XP disc format the drive with NTFS. Do NOT use quick format. Then let XP copy the files and install.

When XP has installed, get your internet set up, and download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5b33b5a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&DisplayLang=en

You will notice that Microsoft have written not to use if updating just one machine. Ignore this. The reason is because this is the FULL Service Pack, hence it being over 300MB.

Once you have SP3 installed, your system will restart. Open Windows Update, make sure you have this set to update all Microsoft products, then download all updates. Restart your system and check if your usb's are working.

If they are still not working, go to the laptop website and download the chipset drivers from there, but make sure you are downloading the drivers for XP. If not, then go to the Chipset manufacturer's website and download from there.

Let me know how you get on

    No problem, see what happens after you've tried a fresh install.



    Don't forget to let me know how you get on

    Also, wasn't sure where you were getting your driver from, but I have taken a look, and just in case, the LG ED510 drivers can be found here:

    The Chipset drivers are on Page 4.

    Ok, I'm with you on this one, willing to give anything a shot. Hope it works

Vista SP2


I want to stop you there. You should stick with Windows Vista SP1 because Sp2 has A LOT of program incapability problems (e.g. some games will not work in SP2, but work fine in SP1). Hope I helped - donman92

My advise, dump Vista, reinstall XP
You will always have trouble with Vista and find that you will have to pay for updates and old files will not open. Not to mention if you attach files to emails which were created with Vista may not always open on the receiver's system.
