    Thanks for responding IB4G2008. I have 2 computers both Windows XP sp2. Computer A is the one I'm working on now and when I plugged the device in it showed up under "other devices" with big yellow ? and ! also in yellow. This computer has a "Standard Enhanced Pci to Usb host controller". The other does not but so far on both computers only 1 usb out of 4 works and that is an HP 1020 printer. Both computers have these printers and both are working so far. I noticed the non-performance of the ports after installing the Belkin hub.

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

One day the Belkin 7 port hub works the next day it doesn't


Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse. 1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end. 2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module. 3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system. Bill Miller

When I plus my small HP camera into the hub port, I get a message that the hub doesn't have sufficient power to run it. I only have the mouse and keyboard plugged into the hub.


If you have an option to turn off USB charging for the camera try this and see if it will work then assuming that all you really want to do is transfer files. If not, then you'll need to switch the camera to a direct USB port on the computer or buy a powered USB hub.

USB hub not working?


When you get USB devices, some have their own power, like a plug-in hard drive, and some get their power from the host, like jump drives. My USB scanner gets power from the host, but if you plug it into a USB hub, it sucks the power from the host. Too many of those devices and the scanner fails, so they suggest you don't plug it into a hub.

Here's where the BUS and SELF switch come in. Somewhere, there is a 6v DC power supply that either came with your Belkin or is optional. If you use it, and put the switch on SELF, you don't have to worry about what you plug into the ports. If you don't care, or don't have the power supply, you can put the switch on BUS, but be aware that not all USB devices you plug into the hub will work, or a combination of two devices may not work.

Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2


Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

I-rocks IR-4300 4-Port USB Hub doesnt work


You shouldn't need a driver for it, Windows has bundled native drivers that will be enough to make it work.
Does anything else work in the port you plug the hub into?
