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.

Setting up the emachine for the first time and keyboard won't work. checked all connections.....???


Is the keyboard a USB Keyboard or PS/2... If it is a USB keyboard try plugging it into a front USB port and see if it works. If it does you might have a lose usb cable going to the back of the computer.

Compac Evo D300v and Emachine W3650-usb do not detect devices


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

The computer does not recognize flash drives and is slower than molases in January.


I've had a similar problem before and the issue could be a BIOS setting. Reboot and hit F2 or the key that gets you into the BIOS settings and check the USB settings. If legacy USB is enabled, disable it, and try again. You may have to try a couple of different settings before you get it. Good luck!
