SOURCE: Windows 2k Pro crash with HP J5780 printer and M50 Thinkcenter

Hi There !!

Thank you for writing to

This is quite critical problem & I am sure enough the computer on which Windows is crashing because of older version of the dll file loading up while you are connecting the printers. The first & last troubleshooting of these steps would be actually to 'Analyze the Crash Dump'. Here's what, I can suggest that could fix.

1. Restart the Machine & don't plug the printer.
2. Open the Control Panel & remove all the Software for the HP from Add\Remove Program
3. Now delete the temporary files & folders from the computer, to do that: Start -> Run -> Temp, Clear all the files from this folder. Also again Start -> Run -> %Temp%, Clear all the files from this folder too.
Then, Start -> Run - > Prefetch & clear out the folder.

4. Now configure the computer in Clean Boot, to do that check the link below:

5. Once you have configured the computer in Clean Boot, Restart the computer in the Normal Mode.

6. Download the latest driver for the Printer from HP & install it.

Then restart the computer & connect the printer.

Hope this would help.

SOURCE: My USB ports suddenly quit working on my IBM Z pro

Check the actual ports, visual inspection. Look for consistancy of the pins, and guide. If one is bent or missing, that can short out the ports, or blow out the integrated circuit.

If you are using a usb keyboard, try to start up and go into the setup using the keyboard. If you can, the driver for the ports might be damaged, causing the problem in windows, but not in the bios startup.

You can purchase a usb board that can give you new ports, and deleting the usb hub from the hardware manager (check help) and re-detecting the device might repair a damaged driver.

IBM ThinkCentre 8172-MM4 desktop pc. I am getting low voltage measured on the USB ports(all) when I have a few things plugged in... 320G HD{rear ports}, 3G modem {Front ports}, SD card reader {Front ...

The main pc power supply is failing, this is an easy fix with any generic pc power supply.
most competent persons can do this themselves with a little caution and a photograph before you remove the old one...!
good luck !

I have an IBM Desktop Thinkcentre A50p F5U Computer. I would like to add a secondary hard drive to it. Is there an additional bay for this secondary hard drive to be installed in?

Probably. I am not familiar with this particular edition of the ThinkCentre (judging by the spelling, you are not in North America.)

Here are some considerations for you ...
  • Is there a USB port available? Get a external drive up to two terabytes for your external storage.
  • If it must be inside is it SATA or IDE - Your drive will have to be the appropriate type to work with your computer
  • you can get PCI adapters that will support a IDE drive on a SATA motherboard and the opposite is true.
My recommendation is the external. Has its own power supply ... is portable ... you don't have to fool around with your computer innards. You can cause damage internally unless you are familiar with computer upgrades. It will install and configure itself.

Thanks for your question and please come again.

Is the usb ports wired for mics

You can not connect a typical mic (with 3 pin XLR connector) direct at the USB port. You have to use a mic preamplifier to USB port like these:
cheap solution or better solution
or use a mic with USB output like these:
cheap solution or better solution
Note that sometimes you need an extra power supply for the mic, depending on the mic. The solution is up to you, your budget and the result you want to achieve.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have an IBM ThinkCentre m51, no os installed and it has the wrong BIOS. It boots up but keyboard & mouse are dead so it seems like I cannot flash the bios, check it or install anything.

Try removing system battery on MB for about a minute and reinstall. Some units have a jumper pin for reset on MB also. If that does not help, your MB may be bad.

Kindly first check if your mouse works fine with the USB port if it does not then the issue is with the USB port which can be replaced . This happens due to short in the USB port board.

check the connectiion cable and tv setting faults, if their is non then know your audio jack pin port is faulty. in case of the jack pin port fault you need to acquire pci audio card that you insert at the extesion slots or a usb audio card.

Where can i download usb drivers for my ibm thinkcenter.

What version of Windows are you using? What happens when you plug in a USB device? Any error messages? Check your BIOS and see if the ports are enabled. If theyre not, then enable them. If youre running Windows 98 Second Edition or newer, the USB port drivers are typically built in. If all else fails, you can purchase and install a USB card. If its an older machine, get the 2 port card, otherwise, the 4 or more port card will suffice. (Some 4 or more port cards dont play nice in older machines.)
