USB PORTS NOT WORKING

I used have XP before I upgraded to Vista. It was all fine for about 2 months until one day i wen to my computer and inserted my usb. The usb light flashes for a sec then it gone. Like there is no power. My computer doesn't detect a single thing. Nothing about anything malfunctioning or anything. I right clicked on My Computer and went to "manage". I Selected the Device Manager option and at the bottom of the list on the right I found Universal Serial Bus Controllers. I Checked to see if the port is listed and if it has an error. There was no yellow question mark or exclamation point. There is nothing like that my computer see's that everything is working and updated.Even my front panel usb's aren't working. There doing the same thing as the back ones, which are intergrated to the motherboard. I thought that the back and front usb's didn't have anything to do which each other besides connecting to the motherboards chipset. Well, I had 2 of the same motherboards. I was using one of them in my computer and the usb ports were working fine. I accidentally fried that motherboard and had to switch to using my other motherboard in the same computer but the on that was fried had that usb problem. So im guessing something on my mother is fried or something. Really CONFUSED. Not sure what to do............

Navman ezy not connecting to desktop



I had the same problem here in New Zealand. Navman would be recognized using USB.

I tried it with Windows Vista and Windows XP. In the end, I connected to windows 7, it was immediately recognized. I had the option to apply a few upgrades which I did.

After the upgrade, it now also works for windows vista and windows XP

G'Day! I have a Transcend 2 GB USB stick. Whenever I connect it to my computer or any other computer, I get this error message ''THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0...


Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices.

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.

All Usb ports not Working


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

Was having problems with my vx922 lcd display.


Sounds like my problem that I fixed by sending back for repair.
I read that these VX922 monitors are affected by dodgy capacitors on the power board.
I had the monitor for over 2 years. Viewsonic picked it up, yep u guessed it... changed 2 caps on the powerboard sent it back all within 2 days, under warranty. I got my awesome monitor back. Its all good!

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
