    windows xp is the OS. SanDisk is the memory card. The computer will read the card when plugged into my cannon camera via a USB cable. I get (device cannot start . code 10) when looking at the device manager.

    I goggled this and read that I should assign IRQ to VGA in the BIOS setup.

    I read that I should assign the IRQ to the VGA in the BIOS setup, but was having trouble doing that. Is this wrong?

  • davisres1 Feb 28, 2009

    I tried your serial bus uninstallation, but that didn't work either. I get the same code 10 error. The memory card works perfectly in my other computers.

    someone told me, " maybe the memory reader isn't working because I installed service pack 3". If I uninstall it and go back to service pack 2 maybe it will work. What do you think?

    The video drivers are not the problem in this case. If your computer is booting and you have access to windows in a normal monitor the video drivers are working fine.

    What I am getting from the question is that the computer will not read the SD memory card when connected to the computer without the camera present. In the case that the camera is present and connected via a USB cable, you will need to uninstall your camera drivers and reinstall using latest drivers from manufacturers website.

    What model camera and SD card are you using? What OS (Windows XP, Vista, 2000)?

A good way to do this is to blame the USB device into a different computer to see if it works there, if it doesn’t work in a different computer and the problem is with the device itself. USB devices, although very handy and portable can fail just like any other device

However, if the USB device works in another computer system than the problem lies with the configuration of the computer where the device did not work

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this scenario and make your USB device work

1) If you are using a USB cable with your device, check the cable to make sure it matches the speed of the device. Use USB 2.0 cables with USB 2.0 devices and USB 1.1 cables with USB 1.1 devices. Swap cables and check the device, if this does not work, proceed to Step 2.
2) Next, open Device Manager and look under the heading for USB Serial Bus Controllers. If there is a device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it such as USB Mass Storage Device. Double-click on the entry and check the Device Status. If the status shows something like
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
proceed to Step 3.
3) The easiest way to solve a USB error code 10 in Windows XP is to follow the steps below to remove and reinstall all USB controllers.
A. Click on Start
B. Right Click on My Computer, click on Properties
C.Click on the Hardware tab
D. Click the Device Manager button.
E. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers section.
F. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
G. Restart the computer, and allow the computer to reinstall the USB controllers.
H. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

My computer starts up and then shuts down after a few seconds. I have replace PSU but problem still persist. E7173v1.0 MSI Board Pentium 4 3.4 GHz Processor 1 Gb DDR II Memory

There are devices that can read out boot error codes. They are not that expensive. Most local computer shops have them and could read out your codes.
You might try removing all devices, memory, disk cables, usb, etc and see if it will boot to the BIOS and stay there. If OK, then one by one add back each device and reboot until you find the culprit.
Hope this helps, I do this for fun and feed back not $$.

Beep Code Explained

Thanks to Transcend Technical Support for this great Brief of understanding beep codes that is found here
This is a long post and it may be truncated at the bottom. If so, use the link above to go to the Transcend web site where these are found

1.General POST (initial system boot) BEEP Codes
If you do not know the BIOS manufacturer, the following will be the general Beep codes:
• 1 Long and 1 Short Beep ?Bad Motherboard
• 1 Short Beep and nothing else happens ?Disk Drive/Video Related Problems
• 1 Long and 2 Short Beeps ?Bad Video Card
• 1 Continuous Beep or Non-stop short Beeps ?Bad Power Supply
• 3 Short Beeps - Bad Memory
2.American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) BEEP Codes
• 1 Beep - Memory refresh timer error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 2 Beeps - Parity Error
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 3 Beeps - Main memory read / write test error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 4 Beeps - Motherboard timer not operational
• 5 Beeps - Processor Errors
• 6 Beeps - Keyboard controller BAT test error.
• 7 Beeps - General exception error.
• 8 Beeps - Display memory error.
If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.
• 9 Beeps - ROM checksum error
• 10 Beeps - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
• 11 Beeps - Cache Memory Bad

Beeps 4-7, 9-11
Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer.
Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
?If the beep codes are generated even when all other expansion cards are absent, the motherboard has a serious problem. Consult your system manufacturer.
?If the beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning add-in card.
3.Award Bios BEEP Codes
1 Long Beep: Memory problem
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort related to the system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

• 1 Long, then 2 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• 1 Long, then 3 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
Explanation: The system is producing constant beeping in no specific pattern, or a fast "ringing" sound.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.
• Other Beep Codes
Explanation: You have encountered an Award BIOS beep code I do not have documented.
Diagnosis: Award says that any beep patterns other than "one long followed by two short" are likely problems with the system memory. However, of late they have started adding other beep codes to their systems as well.
4.Phoenix BEEP Codes

• 1-1-3
Explanation: Your computer can't read the configuration information stored in the CMOS.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.

My computer which is a Compaq doesnt seem to have a slot to put the sandis adapter in. What do I need to get so that I can download music to my lg banter phone?? Please let me know what its called and...

By "sandis" adapter I'm assuming you mean SanDisk adapter. SanDisk is a company that produces flash memory for use in cameras, phones, and other portable devices. The adapter you're referring to adapts a Micro SD card (that fits in your phone) to a Standard SD card. The device you're looking for is an SD Card Reader - although they're generally found as part of a MultiMedia Card Reader. This is a device that plugs up to a USB port on your machine and allows you to access various types of removable media. Fortunately they're readily available and can be found at most large retail stores for under $15. I'm posting a link below to one available from just so you get an idea of what you're looking for. Best of luck!

I put a sd memory card from my camera in my computer. the computer hasnt uploaded the pictures or done anything.

I guess you have a built in card reader? Is there any chance your camera SD card is SDHC? Some card readers including built in types and those that you connect to a USB port have trouble with the later and faster generation SDHC cards but are happy with plain old SD cards.
If you are using an external card reader, does it work in another computer? If it does work, then the problem is with your computer.
If you have a built in reader, can you borrow someones external card reader that you know and does work with SD and SDHC cards?
Can you try an older SD card in your current setup? If that works OK then it's the issue with SDHC that is your problem.
Easily fixed by buying yourself a $10-20 external card reader
