Question about HP Compaq nx7010 Notebook
I have recently aquired a hp nx7010 laptop and I cannot get the usb ports to work. They obviously have some power as the led on my flash drive works when I plug it in but nothing else. I have reloaded windows XP home and updated it but still nothing.
You may need to turn on USB emulation in the system BIOS. To do that you'll need to power the system down. When it first turns on you'll see the Compaq logo with instructions to enter setup somewhere on the screen (I can't remember if that model asks you to hit F1 or F2, try both). Once in the "setup" you'll want to look for USB support. More than likely it's going to be in the peripherals screen.
Also, I recommend downloading and updating the BIOS to the newest version. You can get all the downloads for your system on the HP/Compaq website.
