#1 Right click on my computer, go to properties, click the hardware tab in device manager. Look in the list for any yellow exclamation marks. Anything in this list with yellow exclamation marks are missing the software. Red X's indicated drivers are disabled. If this is the case then you need to download the chipset drivers for the computer. These can be found via the manufacturers website. #2 It could be that the USB port is bad and you just may to install a PCI controller card. This can be picked up at any computer retail store.

Reinstalled windows, run sw cd of mouse, driver installed, only registry not changed . usb pendrive is also not detected , in win98& xp


I would suggest looking up the drivers on the manufacturers database but if you are using '98 and XP it is not likely.
USB pen drives were not invented in 1999 when XP was used.
Good luck!

Hi.

Kindly first check if your mouse works fine with the USB port if it does not then the issue is with the USB port which can be replaced . This happens due to short in the USB port board.

Dell laptop gets hanged when the usb pendrive is inserted.


it could be that u have such little ram that when windows recognizes the pendrive its already busy but windows does this thing called auto play on usb devices like cameras memory card readers even flash drives just try leaning up your current windows install by removing startup programs through msconfig and just getting rid off all the spam delete your internet history thats hdd space that could be used elsewhere just stuff of that sort

You do not need any drivers in windows for these drives if you are using XP/Vista. These are generic volumes. Try deleting any mention of the driver in device manager and let windows install it automatically. This sounds a lot more that your pen drive is dead. Time for a new one. Can you borrow a friends and plug it in to test the USB port is ok?

What Operating System are you using now? Try looking your pendrive in the Disk Management.

Go to Start, Control Panel-> Performance and Maintenance->Administrative Tools. Double click Computer Management icon -> Expand Storage, click Disk Management. Find on the right corner bottom if the removable disk is detected. If it does, Click Make Partition as Active / Reformat.

*Drop me a comment if it is detected or not. I'll be waiting. I will assist you.

Copyright 2007 by Morris Rosenthal -All Rights Reserved contact info How to replace a Notebook Keyboard and Mouse with USB Adapter When your laptop keyboard fails, you can usually buy a replacement for somewhere between $60 and $120, but putting it in is a real bear, and given the current prcies laptops have fallen to, it's tough to justify as well. When you own the same notebook computer for as long as I have, the pointing device, be it a pad or an intellipoint thingy, is going to fail. Laptop keyboard life is also somewhat limited compared to regular keyboards, hair winding around the works is a big problem, but I'd hate to encorage folks with limited mechanical skills to go prying off their keys because it takes some skill to get them back on. So, most notebooks have a PS/2 port to allow for an external mouse or keyboard, but few have both. You can try a PS/2 splitter if you can find one, but the more elegant solution is a USB to PS/2 adaper, shown at right. usb1.jpg USB Keyboard and Mouse Adapter
usb2.jpg Computer End of USB Cable
The USB to PS/2 adapter comes equipped with a standard USB input, the rectangular shaped connector (left). The other end sports two PS/2 ports, green and purple, green is for mouse, purple is for keyboard. You don't have to use them both at the same time, but for a notebook with a failing keyboard and pointer (Ahem) it's a good solution. Windows has had native support for USB mice and keyboards at least as far back as Windows 98, I wouldn't bet on '95 as all the USB support was sketchy. The point is, as long as you're using WIndows 98 or later, you don't need any special software with the USB to PS/2 adapter. So, what's the big deal about installing a USB adapter that I did a whole page about it? Try it when the laptop CD drive has failed:-) The CD drive on my notebook went south over a year ago and I never got around to replacing it because I figured with a failing keyboard and mouse, I should be looking for a new notebook. The solution is to actually install the USB to PS/2 adapter on another PC with the same version of Windows. Then, install it on the notebook, and every time Windows looks for a driver on the CD that doesn't work, point it to the A: drive instead, go to the other PC and copy the reqired file onto a floppy, and do sneaker net. It may have taken 20 minutes, but it's a once in a lifetime job, so it was worth it.

Don't replace anything without troubleshooting first! Thinking about doing this for a living?
In case you're wondering, if you want to install real software, as in programs that won't fit on a floppy, onto a notebook with a dead CD drive, you can buy an external USB CD for much cheaper than a replacment drive for the notebook. Installing the software from the USB CD can be just as much fun as above, unless they provide the drive on a floppy, you'll have to install the software on another PC with the same OS first and then bring the required files over one at a time as Windows asks for them. You can use a Jump Drive instead of a floppy, though it's the same amount of work. BTW, I know I use laptop and notebook unterchangably, it's habitual, not intentional:-)

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote.Thank You.
