If it so old that it does not have USB it will probably have PCMCIA slots and hay can buy a PCMCIA USB card.

My sons old laptop only had one USB 1.0 port but had the PCMCIA slots so i bought a 4 port USB 2.0 card that works fine

I got mine off Ebay but I am sure a good laptop shop may have them too.

Hop this was of help

My Compaq nx5000 notebook doesn't recognize an add on keyboard


Try other usb devices to make sure that your usb ports are working. If you try other usb devices and they work then you know the usb ports are working properly.

Now hook up the keyboard again to the usb port, see if the laptop recognizes it at all. if its recognizing it but not installing the drivers for it, then go ahead and put the disc in and run the setup off of the disk to install the drivers, then at that point it should work.

If that doesn't work, go to there website and download the latest software and install that.

If you hook up the usb device and the laptop isn't seeing it at all then that means the usb device is bad and your best bet at that point is to bring it back to the store and get another one.

Also make sure if the motherboard and mouse require batteries that you have good ones in there before trying to hook up the usb device to the laptop.

If it still doesn't work then you know its bad and you need to get another keyboard and mouse and usb device or go with another brand and model of keyboard and mouse.

If that doesn't work,

Power Surge on Hub Port


Some USB devices draw excessive power from the USB port, especially USB scanners. When this happens you need a powered USB hub, connect this to your computer's USB port and connect the USB device into the powered USB hub, you should not have any further error power surge problems.

No usb


If your USB ports are installed correctly and enabled in BIOS, you will see Universal Bus Controller list in the the Device Manager. Double-click your USB in the Device Manager and a dialog box will appear. Click on the driver tab and update the driver. To get to Device Manager right-click on My Computer>click on Hardware>Device Manager. If your computer has a built-in USB device and does not detect the device through the Device Manager, confirm that the USB is enabled in the computers BIOS and that the BIOS supprts USB devices.

Compaq Presario v2000 w/ dead USB ports


I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario V2000. Lost both USB ports and HP tells me that the motherboard has to be replaced at $300 +..I searched and found a PCMCIA card with two USB ports for $10. No problems with the USB ports on this card..great and cheap solution.
My belief is that the compaq usb ports do not have power limiting circuitry therefore allowing you to overload the output power on the ports. My ports failed after I downloaded into a burglar alarm system I was programming.

Dead USB Ports...


Have you checked drivers not only for the usb, but for the chipset of the system itself. Also, have you installed service pack 2?

Might also just visually inspect for troublesome fingers in the ports themselves; often get bent and short out.

Good luck

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
