Can't boot from flashdisk


USB thumb drives give you the ability to mobilize information, but they also have the power to act as a boot disk for both Windows and Mac computers. If you have a bootable thumb drive that you want to boot your computer from, you can easily set it up in the BIOS menu of your Windows computer or through the boot menu in Mac's OSX.

Plug your USB thumb drive into the computer. Boot the computer and follow the on-screen prompt to enter the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) menu. You should "Press a certain key Usually the DEL or the F2 key to enter BIOS setup" or something similar when you turn your computer on. Follow the directions to enter the BIOS menu. Scroll over to the "Boot" menu in the BIOS screen. Change the primary boot device to USB port or something similar depending on your BIOS menu. Restart the computer with the USB thumb drive in the USB port. b> Mac b> Plug your USB drive into your Mac's USB port. Turn on the computer while holding down the "Option" button on your keyboard. Wait for the boot menu to appear with all of your bootable devices shown. Use the mouse to select your USB thumb drive from the boot menu. Wait for the computer to boot using your thumb drive. Hope this helps.

I have an Acer Veriton X275. It has 8 USB ports. My USB wireless mouse/keyboard, printer, and phone charger all work on any one of the 8 ports. A Scan Snap machine will usually get picked up...


Make sure the system has the latest BIOS version from Acer website. Go into the setup utilty and load the system default settings even if you've never changed anything. See if the system responds differently. If it does not, then the problem could be driver related. A good driver update program may have success in finding updated drivers for imbedded devices like USB controllers. There are a few freeware programs available, but the good ones cost money. Hope this helps.

The usb ports are not detecting keyboard, mouse or thumb drive. usb root hub and usb controller are working properly.


Go into the BIOS and to the "Security" Menu and then to a"Device Security". You will see that "All USB Ports" says "Hidden"; same for "SMBUS". Arrow down to them, hit the right arrow to make them available and press F10 to accept. Go back to the "File" menu and press F10 once again to accept changes. USB ports should not work.

Toshiba Satellite A505 usb ports fell off inside. how are they held on? how to fix?


This info is about replacing a Harddrive in a Satellite A505, but I wanted to show you what is entailed in order to access the USB ports in order to repair, or replace them.

Page 2, Step 18. (You can enlarge the photos by clicking on them)

NOTE*
ALL power removed from the laptop! AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. Buy and wear an ESD wrist strap, connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. Average cost is around $3 to $8.

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws, mark each compartment for where the screws came out of. DO NOT mix them up.

USB ports conduct power but do not let attachment (eg mouse) work.


Since you know you have power and I am assuming none of the USB connectors pins are broken or shorted then what is happening is that another driver is stepping on the USB driver. Check Device Manager for erros. If none then at the run prompt type SFC/scannow. Have your original operating system disk ready because if it finds problems it will need to install the corrections. The original disk IS NOT the recovery disk (this won't work). If this does not correct the problem the operating system needs to be repaired. Email me for further info.

Activating COT2 wireless mouse


Your ACME COT2 wireless mouse must have come in two pieces, the USB connector the mouse itself.
Insert the USB connector of your wireless mouse to your Toshiba Satellite and press simultaneously the button in your USB connector and the button in the wireless mouse. This is done in order to pair the mouse to the USB connector.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and my mouse wont work


Is your mouse a usb or ps2 port? Does your computer detect usb port? Why don't try other mouse or check if a usb drive has installed.
