Hi there,

You might want to try to go to the device manager and go to the Universal Serial Bus controllers

Try to uninstall everything and restart the computer.

See if that will let the computer recognise the USB ports.

If that does not work, you might want to reinstall the chipset drivers of your motherboard.

Hope this works for you.

My lenovo x 60 tablet battery shows 0% available, not charging. I have got a new battery and it still shows the same message. can u provide a solution


Hi deepak_nangi,

There are two possible reasons why you are getting 0% available, not charging prompt even if you already got a new battery. It couls be an AC adapter issue or the DC In. Kindly follow the basic troubleshooting below that will help you isolate the issue:

1. Remove the battery from your system and use the AC adapter alone. If your system is not charging using the charger alone, then it's already defective and needed replacement.

2. You may also try using your AC adapter with other system where it is compatible. If it will work with other laptop then the issue is the DC In.

3. The DC In is the port where you are plugging in your AC Adapter. It is buit in to *********** board. If the DC In is loosed your system will not be charged as well. If this will be the case then the mother board needs replacement.

Doing these steps will help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

It's a server problem, not yours alone. Facebook just posted this few hours back :

What antispyware do You use?

These are really the best ones:-

Spybot Search and Destroy (Free) - safer-networking.org

MalwareBytes (Free but also paid version) - malwarebytes.org

I did a quick Google on Peoplepal Toolbar and i get this from a spyware warnings site:-

"PeoplePal Toolbar is not a virus or a Trojan. PeoplePal Toolbar is an adware application and may generate extra pop-up ads while using Internet Explorer. This kind of application generally comes bundled with another program, which usually discloses the fact that it is ad-supported."

Just looks like it generates popups - Have a look in Add/Remove programs to see if theres a listing to uninstall it. also , just go to C:/Program Files and find the folder and delete - No coming back for it then!!

My proper solution however , is get a decent security suite program as the one you have is clearly not doing much. Quick analysis below

Norton Internet Security - Slows down system , uses lots of resources

Bitdefender Internet Security - Lightweight , uses hardly any resources , cheap to buy each year , can use 1 subscription on 3 pcs

Kaspersky - Very good protection , one of the best but is quite expensive

Eset Smart Security (formerly Nod32) - My personal recommendation , subscription prices arent bad , it self updates etc , i personally use it and have NEVER had a virus. Bundle this with Spybot search and destroy (which is free) and your computer is unstoppable!! - Well maybe not , but those two are what i use and my system has never had a virus. Sure theres been the odd spyware but spybot always gets rid of it

System restore cant restore computer to earlier times and ad-aware freezes mid scan


Go to a friends computer and search for "Trinity Rescue CD version 3.3", try to get build 321 or greater. Burn the ISO file you download on to a CD blank and then set the computer to boot from CD (This setting should be in the BIOS settings). Boot with the Trinity Rescue CD you just created and make sure the computer is plugged into a known good network connection (not a modem connection but a cable or DSL connection) chose item number 6 (I think) on the menu. Item #6 should be "Virus scan non-interactive" Be aware that you only have 10 seconds to choose the item you want from the menu before Trinity Rescue CD boots. use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down the menu. After you choose Virus scan non-interactive, the computer will reach out to the internet and update it's virus checkers and scan your computer for viruses and rootkits. This might take a while. If you have a larger hard drive (80GB or larger) try this before you go to bed and let the Virus scan run all night. When it is done scanning (it will scan your hard drive with 5 different virus scanners) it will have a command prompt (DOS) type screen type "exit" and remove the CD and reboot your computer using the hard drive and THEN try to run Lavasoft ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy.
