Open Question

Two different usb hubs not working

I got a wireless mouse and it works fine in the one usb port that i have but i need to be able to plug in more items so i got a usb port hub (iogear) and when i plug it into the working usb port neither my mouse nor my thumb drive work through it. i thought i got a bad hub so i bought another one (offspring) and the same thing. the usb port works fine but the stuff i plug into it does not work through it. when i plug in either hub the lights on the hubs come on. when i plug the wireless mouse into either port the light on the mouse flickers for a second or two and then goes out. wont work.

SOURCE: Belkin 7 port hub will not work with imac & leopard

Try any other power outlet source on the wall. Are you using the same adaptor to power up the new usb hub?
try the adaptor that came with the new usb hub. Most likely its the power source either the adaptor of the hub or usb hub or the wall power supply. Its strange that the new one is doing the same thing?
Let me know!

SOURCE: When I plus my small HP camera into the hub port,

If you have an option to turn off USB charging for the camera try this and see if it will work then assuming that all you really want to do is transfer files. If not, then you'll need to switch the camera to a direct USB port on the computer or buy a powered USB hub.

SOURCE: One day the Belkin 7 port hub works the next day it doesn't

Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse. 1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end. 2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module. 3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system. Bill Miller

I just had the same problem and was able to figure our a permanent fix.Judging by the date of you post, I'm guessing you've already remedied this problem one way or another. But just in case you haven't or someone else is having the same problem, I'll go ahead and post what to do. First, make sure you leave the USB hub plugged in right now so that Device Manager lists what it thinks is the Bluetooth device. Go into Control Manager > Hardware & Sound > Device Manager. Right click on Bluetooth device that is showing up in error. From the dropdown box, select Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Click Uninstall. Check "Delete the driver software for this device." Click OK. Unplug your USB hub for a few seconds, then plug it back in. Windows should now recognize it as a "Generic USB hub." You should be good to go. Just remember not to install that update again or try to update the driver for the Generic USB hub. If you do, you'll end up with the same problem. I hope this helps someone out there.

Toshiba Canvio 2TB USB 3.0... wireless mouse problem


Get a USB 3.0 Port hub at walmart or any place that sells electronics. They normally have 4 usb ports on the hub and that should allow you to have both the mouse and the hardrive running since the hub would be plugged into your usb 3.0 port on your computer.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

Wireless keyboard and mouse works fine with computer but when I attempt to use it on the f1dh104l switch it does not recognize the mouse or keyboard. it is a dell e6400 laptop that i'm attempting to...


the problem is that most Wireless Keyboard and Mice combos use Composite USB, the KVM however is expecting one signal on each entry port (one for mouse, and one for Keyboard).

replace yoru wireless Combo for a standard Keyboard and Mouse to make this work.

A work around would be using a MS Wireless Mouse and a different brand of Wireless Keyboard using both Wireless receivers and plug them into different ports on the KVM

My brother and I have the AWE01us1 chill hub. Initially it worked fine. We have a wireless microsoft mouse and USB adapter is connected to 1 of the 4 USB ports. Occasionally the mouse stops working...


When I typed AWE01us1 chill hub in my search engine I came up with Targus as the manufacturer of the chill hup not the laptop. Before buying products I would read customer rates and comments on the products. My public library has a free link to consumer reports, or Amazon.com has product ratings.

I'm also getting mixed info regarding the mouse, is the mouse wireless, stopped working, and you somehow overrode the wireless with a USB cable and that stopped working. I'm assuming the mouse worked fine before the installation of the chill hub. If you read the reviews on Amazon, I'm seeing other types of USB problems. Try returning the chill hub and purchasing another brand. You may have to call customer support for the laptop. Let me know if this was helpful.

Wireless USB works, but mouse itself doesn't


Sir/Mam good day,

Is your mouse device also wireless? you need to resync it with it's receiver,
you may follow the methods below to make your wireless usb mouse works.

You need to press the button on your wireless mouse receiver, and make sure that the light on your wireless mouse
receiver blinks. But you need take note that some newer model of microsoft devices are permanently fixed to their receiver
and can't be reset. If your devices don't have a button, here's what to do:

If a dialog box appears on the screen in how many seconds, you need to follow the instructions from it. Or else, you need
to do this:

press and release the connect channel button on your wireless mouse, and make sure that the light from your receiver works
and the status on it's light is steady. If this happens then the synchronization is successfu. But if the problem is still
the same you need to repeat the previous steps once again.

As for the wireless mouse for notebook, this problem come out when the micro switch on the underneath of the mouse was not
released. You can use a pencil or anything with a sharp point to released it.

There are a lot of options why your wireless mouse receiver won't work, and a lot of solutions. Here's some of them:

*Try different ports on your computer, if the connection to some usb ports are not working you can connect to other ports
and see if it will work.

*And also the cables that are included with the wireless receiver, try to use another cables if the
device is still not working.

*If you're device is connected to a usb hub, disconnect it from the usb hub and directly connect it to
the available ports on your pc and see if it will work.

*When fixing this type of problem you need to have only one usb device
connected to your computer, which is in this case, your usb wireless mouse.

*When you have other usb devices, you need to
plug it out.

*If the methods mentioned previously still won't work, you need to reinsert your
wireless mouse batteries or install a new one.

*Another possible remedy to this problem is checking the interference, your wireless
usb mouse together with its receiver should be a distance away from anything that
transmits signals such as cellphones, radios or other similar devices. And also
any metal objects. because such things might interfere with the signal of your
wireless mouse.

* If the problem persists after doing all of the above steps, maybe it's time to update
your wireless mouse drivers, For installing latest driver update with your wireless
mouse, see the documentation that is included in your wireless mouse.

* If all of the methods above did not solve your wireless mouse problem. You can
connect your wireless mouse to another working computer to see whether the problem
lies with your wireless mouse or to the computer which your wireless mouse is
connected.

Final instruction:

If all of these methods fail, you better have your wireless usb mouse be check
by a professional computer technician in order not to further damage your device.

Hope this helps. Good luck and God bless

ECS GeForce 6100SM-M usb issues


Hello,

Like always I'm sorry for I have to be the one who's giving the bad news. The problem you face is related to a complex issue with the keyboard and mouse receiver electronics. More precisely these devices emulate a standard ps2 interface but adapts it to work with a usb port. This emulation should work fine but has some limitations. A motherboard has some 2-4 usb main ports that can be hard wired to some 1-2 usb hubs mounted also on the motherboard. A urb hub has the advantage of replicating a usb port so more then 1 devices can be connected at the same time, sharing the same interface. Motherboard manufacturers use this to enable their products to have more usb ports available to the user. However there are some devices that aren't compatible to be used through these usb hubs and must be connected directly to a usb port in order to use the full bandwich. Wireless keyboards and mices, or usb to ps2 adapters are such examples. As hard as you may try these woun't work untill you replug them at every restart because they can't be properly initialised through a usb hub. most of these devices have been optimised for such uses and don't display such problems, but as you see not all of them.
The only solution in your case would be to change the usb port where you plug these devices. Maybe your motherboard has some 1-2 usb ports that aren't run through a usb hub. Those ports would work fine. If this doesn't help, then there's no other way to make those 2 devices more "compatible" to eachother.

Hope you'll be lucky with finding the right usb plug in your motherboard. Just try every one of them, reinstall the drivers if needed, and check to see if this solves the problem.
