USB's won't work on emachine T1842

Usb's won't work on a T1842, all have power and I have checked all connection and downloaded drivers, device manager says that usb's are working. There are 2 in front and 4 in back. In the back is the ethernet connection with 2 of the USB's and it works. The machine is old but I want it for my grandchildren so they can play on line. The one problem that does show in the device manager is that there is a problem with the soundcard (Reatek) I do have a usb thing that I can plug in so they can get on the internet but without the usbs working I can't do that. Do they make 20 feet ethernet cords.

As for the 20 ft Ethernet cords, they don't make them that long but, you can buy extensions that will elongate the original cord to your specification. The usb problem you are having is due to driver failure. you will need to update these drivers using the windows update tool or, you can go to the computers main manufactures website for these critical updates as well. hope that helps ya.

Go to ACER on the internet and download the current drivers for your computer. Device drivers can also be updated from the Control panel/Device Manager, Highlight the DM and look at the list of devices. Select the lower area USB section and one line may stand out indicating the faulty USB connection. Click on the line and use the option check for Driver and see if it finds the appropriate driver to fix the problem.

Check the USB connection
The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely.
After you make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:

  • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
  • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (3 feet, 3 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
  • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the cause of the problem.
  • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
  • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.
