Is there a way to speed up the USB port on vr931nb


Hi Al
NO!
Fixed by the USB standards in use
USB 1.1, USB 2.0, USB 3 etc
Also the USB port on Computer
Attaching a USB 3 Drive to a USB 2 Computer Port will slow the device down to USB 2 standard

I have toshiba Tecra 9000 laptop, its USB ports and Keyboard EXTERNAL port is not working. please help me


It's a common problem with the Tecra 9000's - either one or both USB ports and sometimes the external KB port along with it. The 2 USB's and external KB port (and the TV out port next to it) are all located on the same daughterboard that plugs into the motherboard, and in your case, more than likely the connector on the motherboard is bad (gotten loose). There's no easy fix for this unless you've got an ultra-fine soldering tip, good soldering skills....

How about a workaround? A PC card (PCMCIA card) that gives you 2 or 4 high speed USB 2.0 ports - it'll stick out a little on the right hand side, but in return you'll have fast USB ports, and you can use a USB keyboard with the thing.

Problem with usb port don`t work


Step 1
Before you start working on the USB port, make sure that your device is not the problem. If the computer says that the there is a new USB device but that it cannot use it, typically there is a problem with the device's driver and not the USB port. If this is the case, your best option is to re-install or upgrade the device driver. Try inserting the device to another computer. If the device works, most likely the problem is with the computer and not your device.

Step 2
Try rebooting the machine. Rebooting a computer resets all of the software to the default state and will clean up many issues. The start up process also checks all of the devices on the computer and can sometimes fix a USB port. First shut down the machine. Connect the USB device up to the computer and start it. This reboot will sometimes fix a bad USB port.

Step 3
Try attaching the USB device on to another USB port on the same computer. If the device now works, the old USB port probably has a hardware or BIOS issue. Skip to step 5 to try to fix a bad USB port through the BIOS. Fixing a hardware problem on a USB port requires working on the motherboard which is typically more expensive just adding a new USB ports.

Step 4
Uninstall your computer's USB device bus manager. The device manager controls the USB access and sometimes gets corrupted. Fixing the USB device manager requires administrator rights on the machine. The best way to uninstall the device bus manager is to right click on your computer's icon and select properties. This will bring up the hardware settings for your machine. Click on the hardware tab and select the device manager. The device manager lists all of the devices on the computer. The next step is to open up the "Universal bus controller" option. Right click on all of the items under this option and uninstall them. Once all of the devices have been removed, restart the machine with the USB device connected. Upon reboot, windows re-installs the USB device manager. Most of the time, this will fix the USB port.

Step 5
The next thing to try is to check the BIOS. Restart the machine and enter the BIOS setup screen. You should check to make sure all of the USB ports are active. If they are, you should try resetting the BIOS settings to the defaults. The BIOS reset will sometimes fix USB port. But if it does not you will have to consider upgrading the BIOS. Upgrading a computer BIOS is very dependent on the motherboard manufacturer and you will have to visit your computer manufacturer's web site for detailed instructions.

Step 6
The last trick to try to fix a USB port is to repair your OS. Sometimes the USB drivers can get corrupted and break the USB ports. You can reinstall the system files onto the computer which should fix the USB port. Your data files should not be changed in this process, but it is a good idea to do a full backup of the computer ahead of time. In windows, an OS re-install is done by loading up the windows installation CD/DVD and selecting the repair windows installation. Just follow the steps and you often have a fixed USB port at the end of the process.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

I have 4 usb poorts on my barebone. two of them


If these are case front/top or other panel ports, verify that the ports are connected correctly.

if ports are configured correctly, remove all usb drivers via device manager. then reinstall them. if the problem still occurs you either have corrupt usb drivers (probably not since 2 ports work) or the USB ports were damaged in installation or because of usage.

sometimes the ports will not clear their settings, try the object you are plugging into the 2 non-workign ones to another port hen try something you never plugged into the 2 non-working. if you still get an error, its a driver or damage issues

Ibm x22 doesnt recognise external DVD drive, keeps messaging saying could go faster on USB 2 port, but thats it


Did you check in the bios if your USB ports are configured as USB 2? That could fix it.
If not possible, try uninstalling the USB Root Hub devices in the device manager, that can fix some USB problems.

USB PORT NOT WORKING.


Both USB ports use the same driver, so if one works and one doesn't, you have a mechanically bad port. You'll need to replace the hardware to solve the problem. There are usually a lot of bad D600 motherboards on Ebay. Or try to find just the USB port you need. Fairly simple replacement task, but laptop dis-assembly will be required to reach the part.

USB port problems


You need the motherboard specs, which you can look up on the internet, based on the maker.
With the USB ports, the front ones often don't include power.
So plug a powered 4 port hub into the front port, and then the hub will supply the power after that.

Windows does not start when I leave my printer plugged in


First if your USB cord is too long try to switch it out with a smaller cord. If that does not work please unplug printer boot up and enter the BIOS settings.

Then check to make sure your boot sequence is setup to Hard Disk first and not USB, you need to make sure the USB Boot Device does not have priority over HDD.

Finally make sure that USB Emulation is not turned on in the BIOS.

If all of the above does not fix the issue you may have a faulty USB port or a bad mother board.
