MY PORTS for usb will not recognise any cables or external hardrives etc


Have you done a OS upgrade? Have you removed all USB, cables, etc, shut down,unplug from AC ,remove battery, leave battery out, plug in boot normally. If that fails go to Manufacturer's website Support, Look for a Solve a problem, or Manufacturer's drivre updates. Is your computer up to date on ALL windows and manufacturer's updates?

My passport 500gb external just stopped working. It froze up so I removed it and plugged it back in. When I plugged it back into my computer it starts spinning but then makes a click sound and stops.


The clicking sound is caused by the spindle inside the hardrive, because it was not removed properly. Just connect you external hardrive to your computer, if it makes the clicking sound again dont remove it yet, just restart your computer properly. In that way all the devices connected to the computer will be refreshed and properly shut down. If it is not detected still, unplug the haardrive then try another USB port. Recommended ports are at the back of the CPU if your using a desktop. These USB ports have higher voltage output that can power up all external hardrives properly.

How do i hook up an external webcam to my acer 5517. no availabile audio/video ports, only 2 usb ports. will also need software, drivers & etc. ?. no webcam included on pc


You would need the external webcam- most use USB, and if you are limited in how many ports you have- you can purchase an USB hub to extend the number of ports. As far as drivers, any reputable manufacturer will include the drivers as a minimum, and usually will include the software you can use with your webcam.

does the usb cable you are using have 2 usb plugs so you can plug it into 2 usb ports at the same time.

My computer freezes when i plug in external hard drives


Does it freeze when plugging in any USB device? Exam the USB port and plug/cable for any damage. I have seen the pins get bent and the tab cracked on a Dell USB port before.

2 usb plugs which goes where??? maxtor 120gb external hardrive pn9nx2dc-500


You have what is call a USB POWER Y ADAPTER: this is designed to provide extra current to your USB HDD drive from a second PC USB port. Plug the end with two USB connectors to your PC/LAPTOP and the single-ended plug to your drive.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.
