HP Compaq 6710b - problem with USBs and other peripherals

I dock and undock several times a day when in the office and ultimately the USB's stop working, the mouse and keyboard that are connected to my docking station also stop working. Occasionally if I go to a conference room to push a presentation on a projector, that also won't work unless I reboot. Also, when doing a "restart" the PC gets hung up and sticks on the blue HP logo screen, never going to Windows login. At that point, need a hard power down and power up to get back to normal. Then it all happens again. HP just sent a guy in on Friday to replace the motherboard but it just crapped out on me again. Any ideas??

Upgrade from USB 1.0 to USB 2.0 on a HP 6710b laptop with XP


I'm not convinced on this error, because I used to get the same even though I was 100% sure they were USB 2. Unless the OS or hardware manufacturer were lying.
If this matches your specs, your good. I did see several that differ, but this one is HP.

Dell 6420 laptop not recognizing USB ports while on docking station


Hello Jackie.

2 of youre USBs are USB 3. so you need to install the right drivers for USB 3.
Also you should check youre BIOS settings, if there is an option to enable "XHCI" support so enable it. (USB 3 needs this to work ).
regards Gue.

Will not print when docked


I would recommend that you undock the laptop, go into the Printers and Faxes console, and delete the printer. Then, dock the laptop, connect the USB cable to the dock and then re-install the printer through the dock. The USB ports on the laptop are assigned different hardware values than the PCI interface of the dock, and if the laptop is trying to print to a local USB port, it may not find the printer if it's connected through a PCI interface like the dock. That'd be my next move.

What OS?
this laptop came with
XP
VISTA

up grade to 7, the other 2 have no support,
However, the HP site still has it , while the clock ticks, (the 10 year clock is about to delete support.
so get the software while still there{hint})

using the correct OS< get this HP software , install it. then
run it and it will load all the correct drivers to you PC like magic. (HP is best, and this is one prime example of best)
SOFTPAQ,

BSOD means.
XP , full of viruses, as all are now, avoid XP like plague. (OS corruption can BSOD super easy...)
Memory bad, try running it on 1 stick, at at time.
DMM sticks.(aka, RAM)
XP with wrong drivers loaded. BSOD.

same with VISTA it too is DEAD OS, now.
