Re: usb port not working

It sounds like your laptop bios has been defaulted.When you switch the laptop on, you should go into the bios by pressing usually f2 or delete.You should then look in one of the menus,usually the chipset menu and make sure that usb is enabled, it will probably be disabled,you should then save the settings.That will cure your problem

Hi, my Lap top usb port is not working when i checked with one of hardware guy hes telling that usb problem and need to be change motherboard for laptop. Please let me know we can get only usb port in...

As an alternative to replacing the motherboard. Purchase a PCMCIA USB card and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your ThinkPad. Use this USB card for your USB devices, cheaper than replacing the motherboard if you can get one. This model ThinkPad is old.

Hello. I have the 7 inch Sylvania netbook and the WiFi internet is not working. I've connected it to my home WiFi internet and it has good signal and everything but when i click on Internet Explorer it...

Google "digital". There find "Sylvania Products". Then click on "7 inch netbook support" and follow directions.
For item # 5, you may have to call your Internet Service Provider (Charter, AT&T or whoever you pay for your internet in order to get your "network keys" fill that in and then click "OK".

Next be sure you go to "Start", "Settings", "Control Panel", "Internet Options", "General" and complete "user agent (requires browser restart" by selecting:
"Default (same as windows XP)" or
"Same As Pocket PC" or
"Windows CE".

I selected "default" and was off and running.

Although this isn't a "lap-top" it is a really neat little machine and does a lot of stuff almost like one. It should be great for travel! It is a little slow and has small memory, but it's inexpensive and usb/sd ports are onboard. A regular universal mouse helps-just plug it into a USB port. I'm doing internet, movies, word processing,etc like everything and I think a lot of people are way under-rating this fun little machine! -DKA-

How to connect my dell dial up modum to lap top

Your dial up modem needs to be ab external modem.
You can not use an internal modem from another machine unless you create a network and share your connection.
If you have an external modem then connect the modem to the available port on your laptop and let plug and play take over. If you do not have a port on your laptop and you modem has a serial port you will need a usb to serial adapter which you can get at Radio Shack.

An Error in ibm T61p lAP TOP

Here is a link to the maintenance manual.

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} You will need to identify which usb port is bad by connecting a device to each port and seeing which one isn’t working. This is a physical problem with the connection between the motherboard and the USB port. (The system reads an open circuit) What is most likely happening on your laptop is one of the four 'prongs' for the usb port is pushed back (into the center on the laptop) and unhooked the connection to the motherboard. I have a feeling that because several people seem to be having this problem that there might be a manufacture defect with the particular USB port.
The way to fix it: (*note: whenever you work on the inside of a computer wear insulating gloves and remove the battery from the computer before hand.*)
Depending on your laptop there should be an access panel to the core compartments. Open the access panel and check if the usb pin’s are not seated correctly.. (Please note* the very small metal piece should be soldered very well onto the motherboard, the problem will probably be that it was pushed out of the USB connection side and it should still be rigidly connected to the mother board still.) Carefully place the small metal connector back into it's slot so that it looks like the other three. You should really solder this back into place. If you don’t know how take it to a repair shop to make sure it gets done correctly.
