Question about Compaq Presario C552US Notebook PC

1 Answer

Compaq Vista I've just got a Compaq Vista and it's been working wonderfuly. But, it won't want to read anything from the USB ports. When I plug something in, it plays the tone letting you know somethings plugged in, but that's it. I tried plugging in a memory stick pro duo card reader into all the USB ports on my Laptop and it would not read it. Any help would be greatly appreaciated! Thank you.

Usb ports not recognized

Did this suddenly start to occur? Were they working before? If so, it is very simple - shut down computer, remove the battery and unplug any power source, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble and power up. Wala! I read all kinds of complicated instructions, started with the simple, and problem solved.

My magic jack is not being read by my acer notebook

when you plug it in does anything come up? If not then go ahead and try different usb ports and see if its read by any of them. If none of your USB ports read the magic jack and you know the USB ports work cause you can hook other devices to them then that means the magic jack is bad and would need to be replaced.

If none of your usb ports are reading any devices then that means the motherboard is bad at that point.

Does 1 Usb port work on your computer? Sometimes they can go out. Do you have a USB hub you can use?

1.1 is the older usb connection. 2.0 is faster and is found all all new laptops and some older laptops and desktops. 2.0 just basically is a faster usb port, and can read more devices compared to the 1.1. you can still use the 1.1 usb port like a 2.0 port but like I said it wont always read or just will read slower. 2.0 is better. You could also find 2.0 usb HUBs that you can plug in to the 2.0 port and have extra ports depending on the HUB, if you choose not to use the 1.1 or 1.0.

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.
