For usb hubs some of the port could fail any time so test all the ports to identify which one is working

Hp pavilion dv4000 usb port can't use


This error occures when a USB device draws more power than the USB port can supply.
To fix this problem, purchase a powered USB hub. Power up the hub and connect it to the laptop's USB port and then plug the USB device into the powered USB hub.

I added a 512mb stick to my ibm t30 think pad and one port is bad


You can plug a USB hub into the working USB port on the computer. The USB hub can have several ports so you can plug in several USB devices.
I suggest you get a powered USB hub because if all the devices that you plug into this hub exceeds 500mA then your computer's USB port will stop working because it could not supply enough current.
You will not need to plug in the power adapter into the hub if the device/s do not overload the computer's USB port.

  • The driver for the device is faulty. When you plug in a USB device, the computer should load and then configure the device without ever requesting a device driver. If the computer prompts you for a device driver, check the information that came with the device or go to the manufacturer's website to see if a driver is available.
  • The USB port might be defective. If the USB device is connected to a defective port, the device will not work. Try plugging the device into a different port. If all the USB ports are being used, unplug a device that you know works, and then plug the problem device into the port that device was using.
    If the device is plugged into a secondary USB hub with other USB devices, unplug the device from the hub, and then plug the device directly into a port on your computer.
  • Other USB devices might be drawing too much power from the hub. The device you are trying to use might require all the available power or bandwidth that your computer can provide. If other USB devices are connected to the computer and are drawing power from it, the first device might not work. If any other devices are drawing power from the hub, try disconnecting them, and then see if your device works. If this solves the problem, you might want to obtain a USB hub with its own power supply so that you have adequate power for all devices.

    Power sugre with m240


    Hi there. This message would indicate any one of the following: 1. You have a lot of USB devices plugged in to your computer, and the maximum power supply for the USB ports has been exceeded by plugging this player to your computer. It would be best if you unplugged 1 or 2 of the USB devices connected for the time being. 2. You are plugging the player on your front USB port, and may need to plug it in the rear USB port to acquire ample power supply (front USB ports do not get as much power as the rear USB port -- sad but true) 3. You are using a laptop and may need to try another USB port on that computer. Purchasing a self-powered USB hub would be ideal as it gets its power supply directly from the wall electrical socket.

    I HAVE PRACTICALLY THE SAME PROBLEM AS THE NO.1 POST ON THIS P I HAVE THIS GE JASCO 4- PORT USB HUB, AND ITS GIVEN ME A BUNCH OF **** EVER SINCE I GOT IT . THE NUMBER ONE PORT ( THE ONE BEING CLOSEST TO THE PC ) WORKS AND WILL LET A DEVICE WORK THRU IT. BUT THE OTHER 3 PORTS ARE TOUCH AND GO. T SEEMS TO HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE POWER USAGE OF THE DEVICE YOUR PLUGGING INTO IT. PORTS 2-4 ARE TOUCH AND GO THE WORK SOMETIMES IF i USE A LITTLE 256KBS FLASH DRIVE. BUT i TRIED PLUGGING IN A NUMBER OF EXTERNAL DRIVES AND A PRINTER INTO ALL THE PORTS AND NTHING WORKED. AND THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE THE PC RECOGNIZING THE DEVICE , IVE HAD IT FOR MONTHS AND IT STILL HASNT NOT HAD ANY UPDATES COME THRU THAT HAD ANY TYPE OF DRIVERS OR IT. I WENT TO THE GE SITE FIRST AND FOUND THE HUB BY SEARCH AND THERE WERE SEVERAL VERY SIMILAR DEVICES ALMOST MIROR IMAGES OF THIS PRODUCT. AND I COULD NOT GET ANY DECENT SUPPORT WITHOUT PAY SOMETHING LIKE 2 U.S $ . I DONT KNOW IF IT WAS PER INCIDENT OR MINUTE AT THAT POINT I CLOSED THE SITE. NO WAY I AM PAYING FOR SUPORT ON A USB HUB. SO i FOUND THIS SITE THRU GOOGLE AND LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD PROBLEM WITH IT AND ALOT OF THE TEMP. RELATED AND NEARLY CAUSING FORES. MINE ALSO RAN HOT AS HADES. , IM SORRY BUT IT SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE MUCH TRANSFORMER FOR THE DEVICE. IM GOING TO TRY USING THE DRIVER POSTED ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE , AND IF IT DOESNT WORK AND LET MY PC RECOGNIZE IT ITS GOING TO GET A REAL NICE REVIEW IN MY COLUMN . AND THROWN AWAY.
