HP's USB port's being VERY picky

My zip drive works fine in my USB port(s), but NONE of my THREE usb ports detect my *MIDI CORD / KEYBOARD*. (I work with alot of music software, and the good ones won't work without a midi keyboard) My supercheap, school-issued IBM laptop had no problem with this, so I'm wondering if there's something extra that I have to do in order for my (older but better) *HP* to work with it...

SOURCE: USB port problems with hp printer

There are few things to remember using USB.

  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal

Its your keyboard thats the problem because if it was you mboard or one of the tracks in the circutry is the keyboard connection panel you would have a problem using all the alphabetical keys because they are all connected to the same track.

SOURCE: My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.

Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager

  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

SOURCE: HP Pavilion ZV5000, some key not working on

Yes, you can try re-seating the ribbon cable. Also remove any dirt with a paper.
If this does not solve your problem, then buying a new one may be the only option.
Trust me, computer peripherals are not meant for repairs.

Why are the Keys on my axiom pro 61 not sending MIDI messages?


Does your keyboard have a "MIDI OUT" port? If yes, then
there is a selection to choose between USB or MIDI OUT port.
For my M-AUDIO oxygen 61 (silver), I must press the [Advanced] button then Note F3 on the music keys manual to toggle the MIDI-OUT.
If set to INT, it will not sent via USB. If set to USB it will not send via MIDI-OUT port. To use MIDI-OUT port I need external 12V DC adapter.

Hello guys, i have a problem with my midi keyboard. My PC doesn't recognize the USB connection and i can't find any solution.


Well first start by verifying USB port works by plugging in a hard drive or something thus proving you have a good port and USB Cable. At which point hook the keyboard up ( and make sure to properly install drivers provided on cd with purchase) being a pc this may take several attempts to install. What software are you trying to control? Reason? Logic? Fruityloops?

Your keyboard USB cord has probably become loose. Try reseating the cable into another USB port, or just reseating it if the keyboard uses a keyboard cord.
If this doesn't work, try a different keyboard (if you have another one around the house).
You may have either a bad USB port, dirty port, or bad keyboard.
please rate my solution!

USB drive problem


I had a client with this same issue. However, her issue was that the top left USB port would only accept flash drives. Your external harddrive is probably not getting enough power from your USB port. Try using two USB ports (you can get a connector for this) to power up the external harddrive.

Keyboard not functioning at all


The problem may be two things:

1) Its cord is disconnected from the PC unit
2) Your Keyboard drivers are outdated.

If the cord is fine, I recommend that you go to the hardware wizard (Start Menu -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Hardware Wizard) and run a "detect new hardware." This feature should be able to get your keyboard going again - and you should be able to access this feature by using your mouse only.

MIDI hookup


The midi port looks like the bottom one in the picture:

You need a cable from the keyboard midi (din connector) to the DB-15 on the sound card/mainboard. If you dont have a 15 pin midi/game connector you could buy a soundcard with midi onboard or a usb midi port like the:

USB


I had a similar problem, with no help from HP support. A USB hard drive would be recognized, and work, but a Sandisk flash drive and a Fujifilm camera would not. All drivers were uninstalled/reinstalled/updated numerous times. HP finally concluded a hardware problem. However, I noticed an updated BIOS on HP's web site to fix "USB problems" with some equipment. I flashed my BIOS with the new version, and USB now works. Some minor glitches, but acceptable..
