If it is under warranty save your game data on a flash drive (formated in FAT32 is best) try a system restore and if that doesn't work call sony and they should replace it . if not under warranty search the web for your specific problem and there are heaps if people opening them up and fixing problems good luck.

I have an Acer 5738Z. While plugging in a USB data card, the system shut down and this kept happening everytime i tred to connect the data card. A message keeps popping up - "A USB device has exceeded...

based on the message, it is power related. the power needed by the card is greater which your laptop cannot supply. try to test an adapter with higher wattage and see if that helps

None of the USB ports on my Compaq Presario R

Hi there!

Have you tried checking your BIOS? Pls make sure that the on board USB setting are enabled...this should fall under the integrated peripherals...

Hope it helps!

My usb ports dont work in my toshiba satellite A135-S2386

Unplug the PCMCIA card first.
Then disable the onboard USB hub and ports. Shutdown, plug in the PCMCIA card and reboot into Windows.
Let Windows detect the card and if necessary put in the driver CD for the card. Had similar issues with my desktop PCI USB card.
After disabling the Onboard though it works perfectly fine now.

Hope this might help you a lot.
Good luck!

Please rate me if i a m helpful.
Thank you.

On startup my keyboard doesn't work

Hello iko_gan,

This is actually a problem with USB Keyboards, Make sure that your BIOS is set to boot with USB making USB part of the boot sequence as opposed to an OS driver driven function, and if possible use the USB 1 port and not the USB 2 port. USB 2 is more suited for Hard drives. and why use all of your USB bandwidth for your key board.

This helped me solve my problem in this area.

Gateway M320 USB Ports Stopped Working

Just in case, Microsoft has a downloadable fix-it for non-responsive USB ports. Not sure if this will help, but might be worth a shot. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page for the download button:

Aspire 3610 USB ports

Device manager shows the USB port if they are attached to you notebook. And in your case they are attached. So it will show it. Now in your case the problem is in your USB. Get it changed. If it is in warranty peroid then dont u take any risk. Let it be replaced. Or give your notebook in warranty period to the company from which you bought.

Usb port

USB spec 2.0 allows up to 256 connections at one time. The USB port operates at 400 Mbs. You can use self powered devices that require their own power supplies, this will help the throughput somewhat. It is more about what you are connceting to your laptop. The more devices that require extreme processor time the longer it will take to free the processor for another device. Another solution would be to use the IE1394 (Firewire) port if you have one. Firewire is designed to handle all of those digital processor hogging devices such as digital cameras, external hard drives and so forth. Hope this helps. Dan
