Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
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.
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 removing these.
Then reboot and check.
If this solution works or helped you, please kindly RATE the answer.
Wish you luck!

*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.
