Why won't the right USB port recognize when I plug in my mouse?


Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
  1. Click the Start button. ClickControl Panel.
  2. ClickSystem and Maintenance.
  3. ClickDevice Manager.
  4. Double-clickUniversal Serial Bus controllersand check to see if all your USB ports, hubs and controllers are functioning correctly. Any devices not functioning will have a yellow exclamation mark in front of them.
  5. If Device Manager shows any USB ports, hubs or controllers are not functioning, check for updated drivers.

To Update the USB Port Driver

An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.
  • Watch a Video on Steps to Update Bios on Your Computer.
    1. When the update process is complete, your computer will restart again to load the operating system with the new driver version installed.

I cant install printer usb port is damage


Hi,
Which USB port Damage because there are two USB port available.
One is Printer USB port or Sec is PC USB port.
If you are say PC USB port not working first you check it USB driver installed or not, or USB connect to motherboard or not. PC there are two side USB available one is front side and sec is back side. You connect only back side, because this USB connect to main board. So you connect only back side. If not working removed driver or installed driver.
Or if you are say printer USB then change cable or port or not solved only change option.

Will not come on was working fine before


If the USB port was fine, the unit would come on regardless if the battery was good or not. This is telling me your USB port is loose. We fix these all the time.

Most issues causing this is a bad charger, dead battery or caused by a loose USB port in the back. If the port is loose, the battery will not be charged and won't even work when connected to an external charger. More info can be found here:

Ultra SuperSpeed USB


usb speeds b> A USB, or Universal Serial Bus, is the brainchild of Intel developer Ajay Bhatt. USB is useful for transmitting data and power to devices. USB cables are widely used in 2010 to connect computers to such devices as printers, cameras and flash drives. While the USB port was initially developed for computers, it has become standard for video game consoles, smart phones, PDAs; it can also function as power cords for these devices.
Unit Load Capacity
USB comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 versions. Each provides between 4.75 and 5.25 volts (V) of power that travels between one wired line. Various devices may draw this amount of power from that single, wired line. A maximum of five unit loads can be drawn from a USB 2.0 port, however six unit loads can be drawn from a USB 3.0 port, making it capable of delivering more power to devices. USB devices are configured to support a minimum of 100 milliamps (mA) times the number of powered ports it contains (200mA for one port, 300mA for two ports, etc.). b> Charging Devices b> Many devices can draw power to recharge their batteries or can function off of power currents running through a USB port cord. Superspeed USB ports run off a 3.0 platform and optimize power usage to provide the minimum amount of energy the device needs to recharge or run. New powering modes allow USB ports to supply power and communication (data transfer) concurrently. A USB Charging Downstream Port can supply up to 1.5 amps (A) at low-bandwidth transfer rates and 900mA at high bandwidth rates. A portable device such as a phone or PDA can draw up to 1.8 A from a Dedicated Charging Port on a USB 2.0 or higher device. In 2009, major cell phone manufacturers like Nokia, Motorola and Samsung agreed upon a standard, universal micro-USB charger for all their phones. In time, this will eliminate the need for manufacturers to provide charging cables with their phones. This micro-USB device has been adopted by the International Telecommunication Union as its universal mobile phone charger solution. When a device requires more power than can be delivered by a single USB port, that device may be charged with a multi-ported USB. External hard drives, for example, can be powered by a USB cable that connects to an external power supply on one end and to a device on the other. b> Powered USB b> A powered USB is a self-powered USB that uses additional power lines than standard USB ports to deliver more electrical current to a device. It uses four extra pins to supply 6 A at either 5 V, 12 V or 24 V to attached devices. Powered USBs are used to power retail devices like barcode scanners, printers, pin pads and signature capture devices. These USBs consist of two ports: a top one which accepts a USB cable and a bottom one which accepts a power cord. The powered USB allows devices to draw more power from a USB and not require an external power source to operate.
USB Power Options
b> According to Everythingusb.com, the Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a concept that was originally designed as a connection for smartphones to computers in the 1990s. Since then, the USB has evolved from the older USB 1.0 and 2.0 designs to the faster USB 3.0 model, which is also called the "Superspeed USB." A benefit of USB is that it can be used to power devices without requiring any additional power cables or plug packs.

Low-Power USB
Low-power USB devices typically consume 100 milliampere or less from the USB bus. This is called a single-load unit. USB 1.0 and 2.0 devices have a single-load unit of 100 milliampere, and for the newer USB 3.0, the single-load unit is redefined to 150 milliampere. Low-power USB devices can be plugged into any USB host or hub port. Low power bus powered devices use the so-called "V bus" pin to draw its power and run on a voltage of between 4.40 volts up to 5.25 volts. A low drop-out regulator is required for most 3.3 volt devices. b> High-Power USB b> High-power USB 2.0 devices consume between 101 milliampere and 500 milliampere (1 to 5 load units) to run on. USB 3.0 supports power consumption of up to 900 milliampere (6 load units). These devices can be plugged in to any USB port, but if you are using a USB hub, the device will only be able to draw 100 milliampere unless the hub is self-powered. High-power USB devices run on a minimum of 4.40 volts. b> Self-Powered USB b> Two types of self powered USB devices exist: true self-powered devices that rely completely on their own power supply, and hybrid self-powered devices that also draw some current from the USB bus. Hybrid self-powered USB devices typically draw up to one load unit from the bus and use their own external source for the rest of their power. Most of these devices have a safety feature to ensure that they don't try to draw more power from the bus, should the external source fail. High Speed USB Port Since 2002, Microsoft has supported high-speed USB ports in the Windows XP operating system. Prior to 2002, computers and operating systems used the USB 1.1 standard, with its 12Mbps maximum data transfer rates. USB 2.0, also known as "Hi-Speed," pushes the maximum data transfer speed to 480Mbps. To take advantage of the higher speeds, you'll need to install a USB 2.0 card in your computer. In most cases, desktop users will need to install an internal card, while laptop users with PC Card or ExpressCard slots may install external cards.
Purchase an internal USB card or internal USB drive bay. Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices. Remove the left side panel (when facing the front of the case). Remove any screws or adjust any latches. The method of removing your side panel will vary according to the type of case you have. If you are unsure of how to remove your side panel, see your case or computer documentation. Attach the anti-static wrist bracelet's clip to a metal object. Strap the bracelet to your wrist. Locate an empty card slot. Remove the card slot cover by unscrewing the screw and lifting the cover, if applicable. Line up the hardware with the slot to ensure that you are inserting it in the correct direction. Insert the card into the slot until you hear a click. Do not force the card. Remove it if you're having problems. Then line up the card with the slot again and try to insert it again. Secure the card into the slot with the slot cover screw you removed earlier. Replace the side panel. Screw in any screws you removed earlier. Attach all cables and peripheral devices to your computer. Restart the computer. Windows will automatically detect your new high-speed USB port. b> Install an External Card b> Turn on your computer. Locate an available PC Card or ExpressCard slot. Insert the card into the slot. The card will click when seated. Allow your operating system time to detect the high-speed USB port and to install the drivers required. Hope this helps.

If I found a garmin nuvi gps it got a locked on it how can I reset it or something


Most GPS navigation devices from Garmin has a reset function which allows user to access a Maintenance Mode screen with system information, diagnostic details or perform the reset function to restore Garmin Nuvi or other series unit to its original default factory settings.

Depending on which model of Garmin GPS unit you're using, the following routine can reset the Garmin device to original factory loaded settings, or bring up the Maintenance Mode with access to System Information and View Diagnostics screen, where users can see various logs, and of course, clear all user data (reset to factory defaults) or clear Waypoints.

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Hack above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Trick above works on Garmin nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series unit. In fact, there is a video demo by user of Garmin Nuvi 360 on how to perform the hidden reset function.



Hope helps. (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Hello,

Please make a resetting process to solve the problem.

Garmin is the leading GPS navigation, communication and solar devices developer in the world. Among its popular products are Garmin N?vi, Garmin StreetPilot and Garmin Zumo (for motorcyle) series of automobile in-vehicle GPS receiver and navigation unit. Garmin GPS unit allows user to update its firmware, add custom POIs (Point of Interests), Waypoints, Favorites and customize other user settings.

Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Note: If entering maintenance mode, it's also possible to perform master reset by selecting clear user data option.
Once the device has been hard reset, user have to perform the set up procedure again upon start up. Note that erase user data command only delete data in the Garmin unit's memory that isn't accessible to the user when the unit is connected to computer. The command does not erase .gpi or .gpx files loaded (if your .gpx files contain any waypoints then they will automatically be imported into Favorites), nor will delete any MP3 music, JPG photos or any other files that have been stored on the GPS memory card.
Once the Garmin GPS unit is reseted, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 - 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites.
Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. "Secure Location" does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it's only a temporary fix as when it's turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again.
Good luck.

Software program


Most of the time mechanics use a scanner as the programs are (garded) by the vehical manufactures OTC , Snap-on tools. You want a unit that will see the data stream not just retreive and reset codes. Lap-top programs can be shopped for on the internet but the dianostic machaines (scanners) have trobleshooting and different dianostic cables and you may decide that if your going to make this kind of investment in tools them you had better be ready to make a living at it. Alot of stops don't have a laptop program because of the casts ( most dealers have a manufactures interface ) Until there is somekind of breakthough the cast is too high and the updates can be higher
