Acer Aspire USB Not recognized - XP to Vista Upgrade

I have an Acer Aspire 5102 (came with XP)... it had a problem with hardware and was fixed by a collegue. Vista Business Edition has been install and working fine... except that the USB are not recognized (message error is shown when any USB is put into any of the ports).

What do I need to get the USB to be read?

I have installed and checked the drivers... they are there. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I think that my chipset is broken somehow. I can't install other o.s. I tried with xp, xp media center, and even Ubuntu. These all crash.Tried many times to install Vista but USB does not work

Most likely a chipset problem as stated above then.
Ihave already had one chip-level service due to USB malfunction. If you're outside the warranty period it may be cheaper or better value to get a new laptop. Acer chip level service can be quite pricy.

You need to redownload the chipset drivers and then reinstall them. This should get you fixed up.

Uninstall Vista because there are too many protections on software that used to work on XP. Vista was discontinued because of this. try installing XP service Pack 3. All your problems with anything in connection with Vista will disappear.

You can download the drivers directly from Acer.

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us

Just choose "drivers and downloads"
Then "notebook"
Then "Aspire 9300"

On the right window, you will see available drivers. Once you highlight each one, you will see what operating system it is for in the "download details" window.

Acer Vista Lap Top Won't Recognize USB Flash Drives


If Acer screwed up fixing your problem the first time (and it's evident that they did) they are obligated to fix it a second time, and if they cant, they are obligated to replace your laptop.

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
