Have a compaq nc6400 and conect a Hard Disk Western Digital by usb this not funtion correct

If you are just attaching a drive you had the answer is probably that your drive is set to be "Cable select" Most USB connections require that PATA drives be set to Master to function properly. If the drive is a SATA drive or purchased as a whole unit let me know and we can figure out other options.

My usb port does not respond on my HP laptop

Hello there.

I understand that you are unable to use the USB port of your computer.

To isolate the issue try performing these steps.

1) Check whether the device is working fine.
2) Check with other USB ports to the same Notebook.
3) If these steps do not work then you can do this.
a) If your Notebook is under warranty you can send it to free repair ( Contact for more information)
b) If it is not under warranty then check for the repair cost from chat support.

Usb problem

Often this is an electrostatic charge problem on usb hub.
To solve it:
On PC disconnect power cable for 30 mins or so from power outlet.
On laptop, disconnect from power and remove latop battery for 15 mins or so.
If it still does not work, then it may be faulty root hub on motherboard.

USB Port Recognition

You must Look on your Desktop Locate
My Computer
Right click on My computer
click on Properties
Go to the Hardware tab
Click on Device Manager
Locate your USB Ports which are probably at the bottom of that list
If there is an X over the USB Connections you must right click to enable them
The other solution is to plug up the device and follow the above steps
I sensing that this device did not have drivers that were downloaded to your system.
The other thing is try to plug the device into another computer to see if it is reocginized by the other computer. If it is reocognized you know it is not the device. It is software related
