CAD station down

One of my colleagues plugged a USB cable in to the front USB port and the whole systen went down. Upon close inspection, found that the little plastic "thingy" that seperates the contact pins was missing, so when the USB cable was inserted everything got shorted. Now when the system is started the monitor says "no signal" and there is no "beep". Tried removing the video card to use the onboard video and that failed. Removed the HDD and hooked it up to an identical ayatem and after a few minutes I get "BOOT DISK SECTOR NOT FOUND", so I hooked it up as the SLAVE and when Windows was near the end of booting up Iget the "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH". With the "shorting" of the USB port have fried the BIOS Chip and CPU as well as the HDD? Should we just scrap the MB? Any help would help

How do I connect my CAD GXL2200 mic to my apple laptop?

You need a USB interface such as an M-Audio M-Track and a standard XLR male to female audio cable.

You use the cable to connect the microphone to the interface using the XLR cable, then you plug the USB cable on the interface to a USB port on your laptop. Finally, you go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface as the input source.

Depending on the software you you use for recording sound (I use Sound Studio from Felt Tip Software) you may need to go into the Preferences for the program and select the USB interface.

Which port in front of my e-machine do i plug my printer in

I assume you are using a USB printer in which case you would insert the USB cable form your printer into the USB socket in the front of your e-machine computer. A USB port is the rectangular port, either found at the rear of the computer mainboard or in the front of the computer chassis/case.

Keyboard not working after being unplugged & used on another comp

Close down computer and reboot and pray. I mean to close down not reboot, not hibernate, not sleep.
Why? The electronic chips chatter before the operating system boots up. BIOS asks who is here? Any Keyboard, and other internal bits.

For readers... Cold rebooting fixes a multitude of problems with not working. OK, it does not fix everything, but it is a good first try

Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.

In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.

WD Hard drive no longer works

This is mostly a power issue, but if you use a hub it may be latency as well. Some USB ports limit power to 400-500ma per port, the Passport Essential needs a bit more than 1000ma and won't work at all with these computers. Other USB ports/hubs limit the total power available for all devices combined... this is why, in your case, you can use one drive, but not both.

FYI, higher speed devices also tend to need shorter cables due to latency. (Light & electricity travels about 1 foot, or 30 cm, in a billionth of a second; this limits the size of high speed devices. In layman's terms, latency is the Brontosaurus effect, since the head takes a while to talk to the tail.)

To boost power, Western Digital recommends using a 22" USB 2.0 Power Booster Cable (WDCA029RNN) to combine the power of two USB ports into the one Passport Essential USB port--it is also a bit longer than the original 18 inch cable. For all EXCEPT the black Passport Essential drive, you may also the WD Passport™ Power Supply Adapter (WDPS021 for the US voltage version). See Western Digital knowledge base ID 1296 for more on this issue.

Hope this helps!

Webcam not working

Hi, There might have been a CD installer that came with your camera. Sometimes it is required that you install the CD first before plugging the cam. You have to check closely the instructions. If you have not CD, perhaps you can try auto install when :New Hardware Found" dialog comes out. Also I notice that changing USB ports install the camera many times over. I would suggest you connect it permanently to one selected port. Good luck and hope this works out for you.
