Hi there. I see you are having a problem with your USB port for windows Vista. try going to your computer manufacturer website and look up your laptop series for driver downloads. What brand is the laptop? I have a IBM/lenovo ThinkPad T40 with Windows Vista on it and my USB ports work fine. Also how old is your laptop? Because it may have USB 1.0 and not 2.0. Mine is 2.0 and works fine in Vista.

How to download from computer to memory stick


Plug your memory stick into the USB slot on the computer. If this is the first time that particular memory stick is being placed into the machine, it will take a few seconds to find the drivers and install it.
Once this is completed, you want to open "My Computer" and look for the Removable Device that will normally have a drive letter of (F:) for example. When you have this window open, open another window, this time with the location of the information you want save on your memory. Once this is found you can transfer them by right clicking on each of the files you want sent to the memory stick and click "send to .....and send it to the removable device. If you want to transfer files in bulk, you can simply drag the files you want into the window you already have open with the removable disk. Practice it and it will become like second nature to you.
Hope this helped...

You need to make a bootable usb install for windows (these directions are for vista but should be the same for xp)

This tutorial will help you in creating a bootable USB drive of Windows Vista which you can use to install Vista in any system. It might become very useful when you don't have access to DVD drive.
1. First format your USB drive in NTFS file system. You can do it by attaching your USB drive to your system and then format it from My Computer window.
2. Now open Command Prompt window from Start menu. Right-click on Command Prompt entry in start menu and select "Run as administrator" option.
3. Now type diskpart in Command Prompt window and press Enter. It'll launch DiskPart program:

4. Now provide following command:
list volume
It'll show a list of all drives in your system. Look for your USB drive entry. As in the below screenshot, the USB drive is "G" which you can determine from its "Type" entry.
Now you have to select the USB drive volume by providing select volume no. command. Since in our case volume no. of USB drive is "Volume 4", the command would be:
select volume 4
Now we have to make this drive active. So provide active command:
active
Now exit from DiskPart using exit command.

5. Now we need to create Boot sector on USB drive. We'll use "bootsect.exe" utility for this task. You can find this utility in Windows Vista setup disk. It'll be present in "Boot" directory.
Now provide following command in Command Prompt:
bootsect /nt60 G:
Here G is drive letter of USB drive. Replace it with the correct drive letter if your system has some other letter for USB drive.

6. At last, copy all files/folders from Vista Setup DVD to your USB drive and you have done.
Now you can boot using your USB drive and can install Windows Vista in any system.

CQ40-310AU, USB problem


Below I have placed a link to the driver download page for your laptop. Copy and paste the link to your internet address bar and hit enter. The most important download on that page is the "Service Pack 1" download in the operating system files. The USB files are the first on the page. Download them to your folder of your choice and run them. They should self install and take care of your problems. Good luck, ParrotHead PC repair
