First you need to see if your computer recognizes the USB ports on the computer. Right click on My Computer and go to "manage". Select the Device Manager option and at the bottom of the list on the right you should find Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Check to see if your port is listed and if it has an error. You'll be able to tell by a yellow question mark or exclamation point. Once you know that you can finish solving the problem

    Is it only for USB flash drive or do your ports not run anything at all? Try going back into the device manager uninstalling them and reboot your computer. It should recognize them and reinstall on it's own. See if that helps.

I have (2) 1.1 USB ports that says they do not reconise the divice when i plug a divice in , and (1) 2.0 USB port that does nothing but when i go into device managment and check the USB controllers it...


I would suggest two things:

1) Get a different USB device and make sure it works in the ports.

2) Make sure the USB device you want to use is recongnized on another computer. (If possible)

If you have the Vista OS that came on a USB then it is not designed to work on 1.1 USB ports but it should work on the 2.0 port.

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

Hi, I got a free HP compaq desktop, the small ones, is 2.66hz it was working fine, but i don't have the password for the administrator in a xp pro, so I just reinstall a new copy of XP but now this...


please load xp again and press f 6 when you see it on the screen to load sata devices .
sata softwares and drivers are required in certain computers to load windows so while loading you will be asked to load those drivers through a floppydrive, so u must have
1)sata raid drivers (according to the hard ware installed in hp.)this piece of hard ware will not allow xp to boot if you dont give its drivers through a floppy drive(during installation and setup of windows.
so u must now have
1 floppy drive(usb)
2 a floppy disk with sata drivers
3)usb port to attach the usb floppy drive
after loading xp you will see xp running trouble free.
a easy solution is to load vists and the drivers are already there in vista cd.

USB PROBLEM- NEED ATTENTION NOW


Here is another option: you can see if your computer has even recognized the device by going into the computer management again, accept this time check the "disk management" instead of device manager. You should see your hard drive listed and hopefully your flash drive is there as well. If it is try right clicking on the drive and select "change drive letter..."select something like "x" and see if that helps it to appear.

I know you may not want to hear this, but If this doesn't work you may need to resort to adding a PCI card with some new ports on it.
