Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

USB works under BIOS, doesn't plug'n'play under WinXP

My computer rocognizes USB pendrives if they are plugged in before system start. After start I can use it, but if I do plug it out ( safe, of course ! ) I can see a "malfunctioning device" in device manager and can't reconnect ( nor remove it ). Problem originally starts with XPproSP2; I tried "escape ahesd" and install SP3 but without any change.
Another USB devices ( cable modem, printer and scanner ), not serviceable by BIOS, are not visible nor accessible.
The problem starts some day, "spontaneously".

Can anybody help me?
Thanks in advance!

Seems u r having plug and play problem.
When the second problem appeared? after the upgrade?
Some weird things like this, exists with SP3.
Does Windows ask u to install them?
Check whether the PnP is enabled from the BIOS.
U can try installing your chipset driver (Update).
Go to action menu and Click on Show Hidden Devices. Go to Hidden devices and check whether there are entries related to usb with yellow marks. Parport,Mountmgr (non PnP). etc. Check whether you have any Viruses.
Important :
Check whether these services are functioning properly.
Go to Device Manager
Click On - Services
Plug and Play (Automatic-Normally) Service
and Such services as PLFlashDeviceIoControl Service, Portable Media Serial Number Service, Windows Management Instrumentation (Set to Automatic) and Windows Management Instrumentation Driver Extensions (Start it). They are the people who are responsible and caused these errors. Double Click an set each one's Recovery options.
Then go to Event Viewer and check System (ans Application) for specific erroneous entries.

Did u do a system restore. Anyway if you have upgraded u can't of cause. U could try that. Check whether ur usb root hubs are functioning. U have to upgrade drives for XPSP3. There are many compatibility issues.
Try the latest chipset drive.

try to find a copy of the bios from the manufacture's website, and put it on a usb stick, then start the computer with the usb stick plugged in. if that doesn't work, you may have to replace the bios chip with a properly programmed one. if you can replace it, then you would have to replace your motherboard (unless I missing something here on how to recover the bios)

My pen 4gb pendrive is working very slow it works 800kbps


When you plug in your USB pendrive into your computer and you get a message "This device can perform faster if connected to a high speed USB2 port".
This means your computer supports USB1 which is much slower than USB2 and the latest USB3.
There may be a BIOS upgrade to configure your computer to support USB2.

MY TRANSCEND PENDRIVE NOT WORKING


Possible solutions:

*See if the USB port is enabled in bios.


*Goto Run> Services> Plug and play > Properties(Right Click)> See if it is set 'Automatic'.

*Try disabling USB2 in your bios, restart your operative system, and if still not detected your pen drive, try making OS detect new hardware or hardware changes (to crange usb2 drivers to usb1 drivers).

*If the above steps don't work for you, it might be a driver conflict. Try installing the Transcend USB driver from the manufacturer site, and see if that works for you.(Check in Device Manager, If there is a conflict after installing the new driver : Rollback Driver).

Please let me know the feedback on this.

Windows ce core 5.0 and we just bought new netbook called delstar and i try to get new windows but it wont work ! how it work with it without cd drivers! i puzzled this computer is limited!


if it has a USB port then u may use a pendrive and change the boot seq in BIOS to boot from USB drive
in the pendrive u must have all the WinXP OS install files...
use another PC having USB slot and a CD drive,
first make a pen drive bootable by formating it and copying the system files....(check what's the drive letter in which the pendrive is shown on MyComputer...it will be listed as "Removable Disk")
Note the drive letter say D: or E: or G: etc
then go to
Start / Run type
cmd
u will get a new black window
in the black window type
cd..
again type
cd..
u will go to c:\>
here type
cd windows
it will take u to
C:\Windows
here type
cd system32
so now it will look like this
c:\windows\system32>
here type
format e: /s or G: /s or E: /s based on the drive letter that u noted earlier
use another PC to just copy all files form a WinXp install CD to that formated pen drive and use that to boot your above PC that does nto have CD rom drive to install the Win OS

I've installed an internal usb adapter and its not working what can i do???


if you installed this in a win98 operating system you need to install the driver and if this was installed to winxp this is a plug and play because automatically winxp recognizes usb.

You do not require another card..Most Usb devices like mp3 players, pendrives, thumb drives etc., will detect themselves and install automatically(plug and play devices)..However devices like printers, Scanners, Digital cams require drivers..If you want further help regarding any device, feel free to contact us..
