Hi there.
Take the memory back out, get a soft dry clean pain brush and clean the contacts on the memory and the slots, the re-seat the memory nice and tight, restart the machine and hopefully your problem will be solved.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

One of my usb port is not working samsung laptop


Just use the others. You can get a 4/5 port extension that fits into any one USB (Working Port) for a few dollars. Each port allows additional USB devices to be added onto the original single port. Assuming you have TWO active ports, that translates to 8 USB ports min. Tiger Direct has them cheap.

I used this memory stick on my old PC at home and it was wrking okay. When i put it into the usb port it showed up ad removable E. Now I have upgraded my pc to a laptop it doesent recognise the stick....


I assume when you say "memory stick" that you mean a USB memory stick rather than a Sony memory stick.

You should try it in another USB port (if ther is one on your laptop). If that doesn't work, then try it in another PC - if it doesn't work in another PC either, then it is likely that the memory device is at fault, otherwise. If it works fine on another PC, then it is likely that it is the USB port on your new laptop that is at fault in some manner.

If you have another USB device you can use (anything will do - a mouse, webcam, etc), try it in the port you tried the memory stick in. If nothing happens, then in all likeleyhood, the USB port is at fault. If the other device works, then it is probably the USB memory device that is faulty.

If the device works in another PC, try reformatting it as FAT file system on that PC, and see if you can then see it in your new laptop.

My Acer Aspire ONE has trouble shooting. I have the software for boosting it from a flash memory, but I dont remember the procedure


Step 1 - Download and install the Windows based HP USB Disk Format Tool. For your convenience, you can download it from HERE.
Step 2 - Download the Windows 98 system files from HERE. This is a zip file that contains all of the system files that you will need. Create a new folder and extract these files into the folder that you just created. Make sure that you preserve the directory structure.
Step 3 - Insert the USB Memory Key into the USB port of your computer.
NOTE: Make sure that the lock/unlock switch (if present) is set to the unlock position. USB MEM KEY 1
Step 4 - Launch the HP format tool program.
Under the device drop down list, make sure that the USB memory key is selected. USB MEM KEY 2 Step 5 - Under the file system drop down list, select FAT32. This is important to do correctly. USB MEM KEY 3
Step 6 - Check the box next to Create a DOS startup disk.

Then click on the square box with 3 dots on it. USB MEM KEY 4 Step 7 - Browse to the folder that you extracted the Win98 system files and then click on the OK button. USB MEM KEY 5 Step 8 - Now click the Start button. USB MEM KEY 6 Step 9 - You will receive a warning message. Make sure you have the USB memory key selected. If you are sure, then click the Yes button. USB MEM KEY 7
Step 10 - Your USB memory key is now being formated and the DOS system files will be copied onto it.
Once the program has completed the operation, click on the Close button.
You now have a bootable USB memory key. USB MEM KEY 8 On the USB memory key, you will see these files. These are the basic Win98 system files. USB MEM KEY 9

How do you get the T5212 to read a memory stick?


Unless it has a port for that memory stick you'll have to get an external one. Maybe you can get one installed in the front of you computer. Good luck.

does your usb mem stick have any light indicators? if yes , whenever you put you usb stick, does it light? if it lights are USB ports is still ok,  You just have to reformat or partition you USB stick.
(you can also try other devices like usb mouse or any usb devices that lights up when you connect it)

if there are no lights if you plug, or no indication that a power goes to your stick, its possible that your usb your are busted. if this is the case, if your laptop has a PCMIA slot, you can find a pcmia USB card, if you dont have. your only option is replace the  motherboard.

i don't think you can transfer photos from mem stick to internal mem, but may i suggest purchasing a multi port card reader? it is a small device, compatible with most all mem cards- deff for Sony Cyber-shot- you simply insert your mem stick and plug into the USB port on your computer, this will also save unnecessary wear on your camera, They are fairly cheap, at around $15, no software is needed, your computer will recognize it as a mem stick, just as it does the camera

The problem is that some usb hub devices are not powered enough to recognise peripherals, i always recommend buying a mains powered usb hub as the pc's supply can find it difficult to power the usb ports enough as well as powering other components in your pc.

Hi, Based on your post/description: Problem 1 - experience has shown me that most of the time freezing is caused either by memory,video card or driver/software. Since you have reinstalled windows, that should rule out driver/software. Likewise, since it has a built-in video (Via-S3 @ 32mb) video can also be ruled out; not unless of course if you have installed an AGP video card (which should be 4X @1.5v). If you have, try removing it first and run the PC with the built-in video just to determine if the video is causing the freeze/crash/hang. That leaves us the memory, as shipped this brand/model only has 128 MB DDR or SDRAM but as per your post the mem is 640mb so big chance that you have upgraded/replace/added mem say 128 + 512? Here's the issue, your PC uses KM266 chipset with an FSB of 266, big chance the original mem is 266 or 333 but the added mem would be something else? You have to check that its rating should be the same as the other/original memory. Both memories should be the same speed. Am not sure if your motherboard also uses dual channel memory, but if it does maybe it will be better to have 2 X 256 or 2 X 512 rather than 128 + 512 (max is 1G). Problem 2 - Sometimes Windows installer does not completely recognize features of mb/chipsets, you simply have to install the inf, drivers, updates for the motherboard. They are available at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00021854&dlc=en&product=326832&lang=en& Good luck and hopes this be of some help or ideas to you. Pls post back how things turn or for further information. Kind regards.
