Question about Dell Latitude X300 Notebook

Usb ports don't work

They all (4 of them) stopped responding one day when my kids were playing on Skype. Now no external cameras, ipods or memory sticks function when plugged in. I have tried un- and re-installing drivers but to no avail. ipods still charges but that's all. Nothing is recognised as having been inserted.

It sounds like you have properly tried to troubleshoot it from the OS side of things (driver reinstall, etc.). You can also check to see if there are any BIOS settings that pertain to the USB ports (generally these don't just up and change themselves though).

If it is indeed a hardware failure, you can do a workaround on your notebook using a USB 2.0 Cardbus Adapter - available on ebay and fairly inexpensive.

Note: The link provided are not my auctions therefore I can't vouch for the individual sellers, etc.

Camera stopped working? !?!


Have you checked the app you are using has the 'Enable Camera' setting ticked in it's settings? Soz if that sounds silly but you'd be suprised how many 'setting's decide to change themselves for no reason.
Make sure you have enough free memory on the phone. Move as many personal files such as music and saved videos etc. from phone memory to the Ext. SD Card (external sd card)
Can you take pictures or video with the camera? If so the problem is with the video call app you are using (skype etc) uninstall it (remove the app) and reinstall from app store.
Did you notice the problem started after installing another app?? Installation of another app might be interfering with it also. Try video call after re-boot before opening up any other apps.

My camera wont allow me to play back my pics


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer.
Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Can x40 connect to wireless broadband? Is the graphics ok for games that are not too demanding? Is it suitable for an 11yr old girl who wants to play games & use skype & internet? USB broadband,...


1) Can the IBM ThinkPad X40 series of Notebook PC connect to a wireless broadband router?

I would plug in a USB wireless adapter that is Wireless N.
Example,

2) Are the graphics OK for games that are not too demanding?

A) Processor:
Intel Pentium M processor, that with the highest option model, operates at 1200Megahertz. (1200MHz)

B) Ram Memory:
512MB's of PC2700 ram memory. (DDR Sdram at 333MHz. SO-DIMM ram memory)

C) Graphics chipset:
Intel 855GME chipset,

Like a slug crawling along in deep winter.


USB broadband, and USB mouse?

Sure.
Enough USB ports for this? There are 3 USB ports.

My recommendation is No, sir, or ma'am.
Hate to rain on a parade, but kids expect the laptop to perform gaming on top level, connect to the internet at lightning speed, and pour a soft drink at the same time.

(Kinda of what we adults expect)

She'll be bored with this laptop in a day.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

USB Troubles


How To Refresh and reinstall USB Ports Of Your Computer Hello there, the other day i tried refreshing and reinstalling the USB ports on my PC, as some of my connecting devices are not recognized. I present the detailed procedure on refreshing the USB ports.
Let’s go!!

Here are the steps to refresh/reinstall/uninstalling the USB ports on the computer.

The USB port needs to be refreshed to make sure that no other device has captured the USB port of the computer. The Mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk; what ever it may be.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager Button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk...USB hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main USB devices at the rear end USB port. As they require more power to initiate.


The above steps are for XP operating system. When coming to the matter of Vista, please note the changes below:
===========================
1) Right-click Computer icon from the desktop , and then click Properties to open the System Properties window, and then select the Device Manager tab.

2) Click the Plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers/Root hub.

3) Click the USB Composite Device entry to highlight it, and then click Remove. If a screen appears to confirm the deletion, confirm the deletion.

4) Disconnect the USB cable to the all-in-one, wait a couple seconds, and then reconnect the cable. This should restart Windows device detection (Plug and Play).

5) A New Hardware found screen may appear, click next through all of the screens that appear for the Wizard to install the USB Composite Device. Click Finish once the wizard completes.

What is the usb port for and how do you work the sd port


Ok basically the USB port is so you can plug a USB memory stick into it and it will play mp3 music files off the USB Stick, or will play off any other USB Mass Storage Device, you can buy these on ebay very cheap. The SD slot is so you can plug an SD Memory card into it and it will work the same as the USB port, SD Memory cards are also very cheap nowa days and are often used in digital cameras. Hope this helps
