I've seen systems that default to booting from the latest installed drive. I suspect that your BIOS has this set. Go into the setup and check. If it has this set, set it to the drive you want to boot to. This will probably keep happening if you like to boot the system without the drive connected unless their is a BIOS update.

    From what I've been able to find, there seems to be a problem with USB devices in general (keyboards, printers, flash drives) preventing systems from booting. Some thing that has supposedly worked:

    Browse the BIOS for legacy support.... disable it, turn it off then save your changes - reboot.

Can you help me fix my Dell Studio 1558 laptop? It doesn't boot?


Dropping a laptop is never good news. Have you tried to Cold-Start the laptop, unplug. remove battery, leave battery out for now, plug in try to start normally. If that fails, Did you remove the HDD and reseat? The damage from the drops may have jarred something loose. Do you get activity, light blinking, from the HDD? The DVD/CD?

Need 'step-by-step' instruction to install a USB 2.0 4-PORT Hub. Please know that I am NOT computer 'savvy'! Thanx - Pat B


We all have to start somewhere! The simplest way is to see where your mouse is currently plug-in your computer: look for an identical 'USB' socket to the one the mouse is plug-in and plug the USB hub cable plug to this socket. You could also just unplug your mouse from the computer socket and plug the USB hub cable instead AND THEN plug the mouse in one of the socket on your Hub. The computer should automatically install the software require to drive your newly installed USB hub. Hope it helps!

Blue screen when playing iTunes on Logitech Z-10 speakers


Before, you return it, can you unplug the Wireless USB Hub, and plug in your iPod and does it work just fine?  Also, the USB port that you're plugging it into - is it USB 2.0?
If both answers are YES to the above - then definitely return it.
It's not your speakers.

DELL STARTUP


There was problem at one time with IOGear KVMs not working correctly with the USB chipset on the Dell motherboards. This problem was resolved by using a USB hub between the KVM cable and the computer. The user could take the USB portion of the KVM cable and plug it into a USB hub and then take the USB hub and plug it into the Dell computer. That should help with the problem.
