Toshiba aspire boots normally but moving the cursor or any key and the screen goes dark.


Try using a PS2 mouse and PS2 keyboard. It may be that your USB ports have lost their setup (assuming that you are using USB or wireless mouse and keyboard). If the PS2 hardware works fine, check that your USB ports are enabled in the BIOS, then check your device drivers in Windows to see that the USB hardware is recognized.

Usb device not recognized


Usually this means the computer saw that something was plugged into the USB port, but it doesn't know what device it is. It will require device drivers from NEC to recognize the drive. If your drive came with a driver CD, install these drivers. If the drive was working before, but now it's not, reinstall the drivers. If this does not fix the problem, then most likely either your drive is bad, or else your registry has become corrupted. Try another USB drive and see if your USB port is working, that is another possibility.

I have a Que!M3 60GB external hard drive. All of a sudden it is making clicking noises and is not recognized by my computer. Help! This has all of my pictures saved on it!


I assume that your operating system is on another hard drive. If so, try powering down your PC, disconnecting the external drive from the computer's USB port, powering back on and then connecting the drive to a different USB port.

If your computer still does not see the drive, I'm afraid the drive has failed. You might try taking the drive to a PC technician who may have utility software which will enable him to recover your pictures.

Usb not recognized and no removable disk drive


Try connecting the USB device to a different USB port on the same computer, or to a USB port on a different computer, to confirm that the USB device itself is working correctly.

I have a HP External USB CD/DVD R/RW drive. Stopped working.


First, try a new USB cable. Two, try a different USB port (if using a hub, directly connect to the computer). Three, check if there are any updated drivers or firmware for the drive.

(also make sure that the external drive is self-powered that the cord is undamaged and the power isn't surging or going into a brown-out. If it is one of the new bus-powered DVD drives, make sure that the computer has a good power source (not on battery for a laptop).)

IHOOK UP THE BURNER TO MY COMPUTER BUT NOTHING


Try a different USB port. Check if other USB devices are found when in that port.

Unplug other USB devices (keep your keyboard and monitor attached) and check if the device is recognized. Since you indicate that you used the front port, you may want to check that the cable between back of the port to the motherboard is fully seated on both sdes. Make sure that the OS hasn't been set to turn off the previously unused USB ports (this is a security and power-saving option).

I hope this helps.

My computer does not recognize it. It used to work, but now it won't do anything when I put a cd or dvd in it. It also has the light scribe feature. It only came with Nero cd, no intstallation cd.


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few common USB problems.
.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability.

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again.

If you suspect a cable NEVER get one longer than the one you want to replace

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues it may well be due to the device itself or a weakened usb port, a loose usb port.

To remedy the last two consider a new usb card if it for a PC
