Have you tried all the normal stuff? Hook up the player on the rear of the computer these ports on the rear are more suited for power requirements of charging devices. Next do you have the right USB cable for the player, many may fit but they are not all alike. Have you tried to reseat the battery?

  • Then try all this.
Reset the device.
  • 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
  • 2. Release the Power/Menu button.
  • 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Then you can do what is called a power cycle.

  • Remove the battery.
  • 1. Connect the device to the PC.
  • 2. Leave the device connected for about 2 minutes.
Turn on the device
  • 1. Disconnect the player from the PC. and Quickly
  • 2. Insert a fresh AAA battery into the player.
  • 3. Turn on the player.

Were do you plug the cord in on a apple A1395 to take pictures from it to a pc


You should be able to simply plug in the 30-pin connector -> USB cable into your PC and it should show up and you can then import the images as you would for any other digital camera. This is the same cable you use to charge the iPad - just plug it into the USB port on your PC.

Usb not recognising usb adapters


Try a different port or a port on a different section of your machine. USB controllers and USB ports can go bad from time to time. You can always add an external USB hub to any of your working hubs.
It could also be that whatever you're plugging in is not formatted correctly, or isn't powered on if it needs power. Also, try rebooting your machine to see if that fixes the recognition.

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I got a behringer c-1u mic and I plugged my USB in the pc and it says no drivers are installed for this device and also the green light of the mic flashes soon as u connect it then dims out and stops...


Either you haven't yet installed the drivers (usually a CD that comes with - or can be downloaded from Behringer Website),

AND/OR your bios settings dis-allow plug-and-play USB devices. Restart your PC and enter Setup to check..

AND/OR your microphone is bad, have you had success with it on another PC?

AND/OR your USB Port is bad - are you plugging directly into the PC's USB, or a seperate multi-port Hub? I once had a multi-port USB Hub that burned up anything I plugged into it.. Took me about 3 devices to die before I simply changed the hub. Pwoblem solved..

Hope this helps...

SE-084C Won't work on mac is there a soultion to this?


According to the samsung website the SE084C it can be used with a mac see http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/monitor-peripherals-printer/optical-disc-drive/dvd-rw-drive/SE-S084C/RSPN/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail

Are you using it via a usb hub or is it plugged directly into the usb port of the mac. As it is powered via usb, on the hub it may not have enough power getting to it, so plug it directly into the usb port. If you already have it plugged into the usb port change the usb port and finally check that the usb cable is working, if it isn't change it. Hope this helps.

Dell inspriation N5010 laptop this laptop all usb port is not working . laptop purchising in 3month and windows 2007 operating system instaled what is problem please sole the problem


If USB devices such as jump drives, digital cameras, or printers are no longer functioning properly when connected to your laptop, the USB ports may have malfunctioned. There are plenty of troubleshooting steps you can complete on your own to get the port up and running properly again.

1.Connect the USB device into a different USB port on the laptop or another computer to make sure the problem isn't with the device instead of the port. Check to see if the device has a "Write-Only" tab. Push that tab into the unlocked position if it still isn't working in a different port.
2.Click "Start" and then "My Computer" if the device works in another computer but not on your laptop. Plug a device into the port and wait to see if the USB port shows up in the list of drives. Click on "Map Network Drive" if the drive does not appear. Choose a drive letter from the drop down menu and then double click the location of the USB device. Click "OK" and try to use the port again.
3.Navigate back to the Start menu and then click "Control Panel." Double click on "Device Manager." Scroll down the list of options and click the "+" located to the left of the entry labeled "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Double click the name of the USB port that appears in the new menu. Click the "Drivers" tab and then click "Update Drivers." Wait for the driver to finish downloading and attempt to use the port again.
4.Close the drivers tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Properties." Click the "Power Management" tab and then un-check the check box labeled as "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Choose the "Communications Port" tab and then scroll down to the box labeled "Resources." Click the "Enable Device" button and then click "OK." Attempt to use the USB port again.
5.Close the Properties tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Uninstall." Restart the laptop and then plug a device into the USB port. Wait for a new window to pop up and follow the on-screen instructions to re-install the USB port software.
6.Restart the computer and press the "F1" button on the laptop's keyboard once the manufacturer's name appears on the screen. Scroll down through the list of options that appear and highlight the option labeled as "Advanced." Press "Enter" and then scroll down and press "Enter" on the "USB Support" option. Press "F10" to save the settings and finish loading the operating system.
7.Open your web browser if your laptop is running the Windows XP operating system. Navigate to the Microsoft website and download the Windows XP USB 2.0 driver (see link in Resources). Restart the computer and try to use the USB port again.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

USB port not working


Sometimes i know you have to plug in a usb from the monitor to the computer. If this is already done simply unplug that usb device and plug it into another usb slot on the computer itself. If this does not work try replacing the cable. If that does not work try testing by plugging in something on the computer to make sure the usb ports work and then try in monitor, if it doesnt work in the monitor then something went bad with the monitor. Check for warranty. Same with computer if it doesnt work.

My sansa mp3 will not charge on my computer it just drains the battery instead. I have tried rebooting my computer but it still will not charge.....help I miss my music !!


Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. If you're plugging the Sansa into a USB hub, try plugging it in directly. If there's another USB port available, try that.

If that doesn't work, you may have to get a separate USB charger, as used for some cell phones.

Also, bear in mind that when the Sansa is connected to a computer, you can't listen to your music on it.

Will my mp3 player (sandisk sansa m230) charge


Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.

Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.
