My magic jack is not being read by my acer notebook


when you plug it in does anything come up? If not then go ahead and try different usb ports and see if its read by any of them. If none of your USB ports read the magic jack and you know the USB ports work cause you can hook other devices to them then that means the magic jack is bad and would need to be replaced.

If none of your usb ports are reading any devices then that means the motherboard is bad at that point.

Acer 5050 Won't boot


Sounds like either youve broken a USB port? or something thats plugged in your laptop doesnt like or is starting to develope a fault.

Or your battery is faulty (always use the battery? never use the battery?) if you never use the battery the Lithium cells can become overcharged or collapse.

Let me know...

Aspire 3610 USB ports


I think you might have a loose cononection for the data ports. Try putting a little bit of force on the usb device. Up, down left right. NOT ALOT. If it starts working when force is used, i tihnk you should try to take it apart and resolder the connections. If it dosen't work, uninstalling the driver and installing.

Acer Aspire 5050-5430 USB ports stopped working


Hi,
I hope i can help resolve your problem for you.
this may be a problem relating to your system device driver files.
Try This:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. at the bottom of the page you will see USB.
If you have any yellow symbols ( exclamation Marks ) then the driver has been corrupted, or installed incorrectly.
if you have a system restore disk. this may solve the problem for you. or recovery cd.
If you require further assistance, please ask.

Usb port on Acer aspire 5050


Be safe rather than sorry, get yourself a Powered USB Hub.

One of the problems with USB is that a device is only allowed to draw up to 500mA of power (100mA on first connection). So, if you buy a non-powered hub, it will only support one high-power (500mA) peripheral, and the other ports on that hub may be useless. Plug a mixture of devices into a non-powered hub and some might work while others might not. Since people expect to be able to plug any USB device into any USB port, I think this is really bad. Using a powered USB hub generally eliminates the problem.
