Computer will not turn on. when power button is pushed, battery and power cord lights flash on and off. Plugging in does not help. How can I make my computer work again?


Try doing this:

1. Remove the battery and unplug the computer.
2. While there is no power connected, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the computer back in, but don't insert the battery yet
4. See if it will turn on now, and if it does, insert the battery again.

Sometimes this works to drain some residual power that is still inside the machine. I've done this on a couple of machines and it has resulted in them starting up fine. If this doesn't work, you may have a more serious problem and need to have it looked at by a technician.

plug it again and if it doesn't work at all try other USB port. A USB flash drive nowadays supports only 2.0 and above USB ports. It all about signal speed a USB 2.0 and above were backward compatible with USB 1.1 .

I cannot install the above mentioned scanner since the driver is unspecified


IF IT IS USB BARCODE SCANNER, DO THESE:

1.

Locate the USB connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other computer peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the data cable, most likely opposite the scanner itself, should be a small rectangle-shaped plastic and metal connector. This connector is the USB terminal that will plug in to the computer's USB port.
2.
Locate the USB port on the computer. The USB port, whether on the computer or a peripheral device, will be rectangular in shape and feature either the letters "U S B" or a small network diagram showing two circles, a square, and an arrow.
3.
Connect the USB cable to the computer or peripheral device. Once the USB connector and port have been identified, push the USB connector firmly but gently into the available USB port. USB connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the USB connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must decipher the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.



TO INSTALL A SERIAL BAR CODE SCANNER, DO THESE:




1.

Locate the serial connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the serial cable should be a rectangular, typically male connector. The cable may be pinned with nine, sixteen, or more pins depending on the design of the scanner.
2.
Locate the serial port on the computer. Most computers have at least one serial port, usually found on the back of the machine. The port will be female, maybe blue in color, rectangular in shape, and should be approximately the same size (or slightly smaller) as the serial connector.
3.
Connect the serial cable to the computer or connected peripheral. When both the connector and port have been identified, push the serial connector firmly but gently into the port. Like USB connectors, serial connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in. Do not use excessive force while pushing on the serial connector, as it is possible to bend the connecting pins and damage the connector.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must interpret the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your specific scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.

My mouse doesn't move. i unpluged it and repluged it nothing happens. It was working before and now i turned my computer on it doesn't work. can you help me . lois


You may have one of two kinds of mice. One has a round green colored connector, the other one has a flat connector.

If you have the first kind, with the green colored connector( called a PS/2 mouse), shutdown your computer using the keyboard (Press the Windows key, then press the U key. Then, once again press the U key to shutdown.

Now insert the green connector into the corresponding green connector at the back of the computer. If it's already connected, unplug it and inspect whether it has any bent or broken pin inside the green connector. If not, then carefully re-insert in, taking care about the notch. Alight it with the notch on the green connector on the computer side. Both of them may have an arrow.

If you have the second type of mouse, with the flat connector (called a USB mouse), you need not shutdown and just unplug it and re-inserting it in the USB port should make it work, even when Windows is running.

If your mouse doesn't work, even after you tried the above, test it on some other computer, using the same methods mentioned above. If it doesn't work on the other computer, it's defective and may need a replacement.

Hope that helps.

Raspal

Plug in my hard drive and nothing happens


Make sure that your usb hard drive is inserted properly into the computer but if nothing happens, go to your bios settings of your computer and be sure that usb function is set to on. Save changes and restart the computer. If you dont know how to do this, first turn on the computer and press the delete key in the keyboard, once you enter the bios screen look for the usb settings and make sure it is set to on. Hope this could help. Thanks

My USB is not recognizing my wireliess mouse divice.


try to check if is it properly installed not just the hardware but as well as the software. Basically when we plug in a usb deice especially first time you inserted that device it sometimes need allowable time to install its driver. Also try to check if you computer supports plug and play device such as USB cause sometimes not all USB device are supported in all different types of hardware.
