Question about Dell Latitude X300 Notebook

1 Answer

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.

Sounds like you require new drivers for the USB sockets. Only use Acer drivers, Microsoft are not trusted to work without issue.

How do I download pictures and video from my GE DV1 camera to my acer A500 tablet


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.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

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

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.

My USB ports have stopped working for no apparent reason. can you help?Yes Everything is as up to date as possible. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the USB drivers. Still nothing.


If the ports do not respond the usb chip onboard is probably damaged - my friend fried his motherboart by pulling out an ipod cable. It is best you send it to toshiba service center, if the motherboard is defective, it needs replacing.
In any case, let me know how you end up, ok?
Good luck,

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.
