I have 4 usb ports, and would like to know which one is the 2.0 port


If all the ports come from the same board (motherboard or expansion board), all should be 1.1 or 2.0, if they come from different boards, you could have mixed USB 1.1 or 2.0 ports, one simple test that can be done by connecting a USB 2.0 memory to the ports you want to test, if you receive a warning about a high speed device (2.0) connected to a low speed port (1.1), you have a 1.1 USB port where you connected it, if such warning doesn't appear you have an USB 2.0 port there.

Symbol barcode scanner LS4071 + base RL475


Hi, you will need the 25-17821-20 and STI80-0200R cables to connect to PS/2. You must have a PS/2 keyboard for this connection.

If you would prefer to connect to a USB port you should get the 25-17821-20 cable with the STI85-0200R.

The RL-475 was for the IBM, but it also supported Synapse which is the STI cable.

PS 2 port problem


What is the model number of your motherboard? VIA does not make Processor's/CPU's.
VIA makes chipset's for motherboards.
In order to answer your question I'll need the manual for the motherboard. No manual listed here: http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/others/p4xb_m.jsp

Here is a picture of the VIA P4XB-M motherboard. This model can not use DDR2 memory. (Only, 184pin PC2100 DDR266 DIMM)
Found here: http://www.upgradecomputermemory.com/ram.cfm//memory/V/VIA-Technologies/P4XB-M-Motherboard/256MB-VIA-Technologies-Desktop-184pin-PC2100-DDR266-DIMM.html

VIA P4XB-M
http://www.via.com.tw/download/mainboards/4/11/P4XB-M.pdf

99.0% of motherboards still use PS2 ports. One colored purple for the PS2 keyboard female port, back side of the MB & the other colored light green, female port, back side of the MB PS2 mouse port. By default, most motherboards have the jumper for PS2 keyboard enabled. Location for this two-pin jumper varies from board to board.
A USB port looks like this:

The PS2 port's are found in the upper left hand corner of this same picture. This next link will show how to connect USB motherboard jumpers including their wire locations. (Standard for most motherboard USB connections).

Barcode scanner scans and beeps, but will not put the numbers in the computer


There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

A USB mouse will work but the PS/2 mouse failed. What causes it?


Hi melch, On the PS/2 mouse, chances are that the surface mounted fusible link/resistor supplying the +5VDC is open. It is normally very near the PS/2 port and marked [0] or labeled F???. This can be verified by measuring the absence/presence of +5 at pin 4 of the connector. In some cases, it is the I/O chip that gets damaged. Re "only two(2)USB port" aside from the 2 rear USB ports, the Asus CUV4X-C has another pair of USB connectors that are normally connected to the front panel of the casing. It is located very near the motherboard battery. Re "...prompting...high speed USB port...", normally by updating your OS (say XP to SP2) or downloading/installing latest VIA 4 in 1 Drivers should make your USB 2.0 compatible. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

You could use a ps2 splitter cable to connect both the barcode scanner and the keyboard to the pc. You would also have to use the correct scanner codes to ensure that the scanner is configured properly. Alternatively, you could try connecting the scanner with only the ps2 to usb and miss out the extension cable to determine if that is the problem. If the scanner is a ps2 wedge scanner, it will need reprogrammed with the correct scanner codes for usb.

My XP Media Center PC does not recognise the scanner


Your USB ports on your computer may be bad. Do other devices work if you plus them into the same USB port? You can try plugging the scanner into another PC with USB ports. If it works in the other PC, then that points to the original PC's USB ports. You can try buying an add-on USB port or using other USB ports on the PC. If it still does not work, then there may be a problem with the USB port on the scanner, and the scanner itself may need to be serviced.
