USB devices not seen

Hi. My usb devices are not being seen by my pc, but when I disconnect each one the pc states "one of your usb devices has malfunctioned." This happens on all of the usb ports. Sometimes I get the device to be seen after about the eighth re-start of the pc. The devices i have used include a Tom tom satnav, a Goodmans camera and a Lexmark 1100 series printer. At present the Lexmark disc is stating "you have not connected the printer." There is a Canon printer connected up too which has never given any problems. I am running windoze xp SP2 with about three registry problem fixer programmes. The problem was no better or worse before the registry programmes were installed. Thanks.

Go through control panel/system/device manager, and see if the USB ports(should be at bottom) are good or not.

if not, remove them all

use scan for new hardware at top

see how that works.

I have a hp pavillion ze5170 and a belkin wireless dongle. the comp states that i need hi speed usb. what is that?


Ignore it, it just means it could run faster if you had USB 2.0 but almost all USB devices are backward compatible to standard (USB 1)

Shut down computer, disconnect from power outlet. disconnect all usb devices on the usb ports and just leave mouse and keyboard connected. disconnect harddrive cable from the motherboard and hard drive and reconnect cable again.

Restart system afterwards to see if the issue was resolved.

Should you have any other questions please just leave a comment.

What is the version of the usb port on a compaq presario 1200


Hi again, after extensively searching I believe your Laptop has a USB version 2.0.

Most PC's manufactured before 2001 were USB 1.0 and USB 1.1.

The Spec Guides for your PC indicate 2002 was the year of manufacture.

USB 2.0 is a faster USB connection than version 1.0 or 1.1. You might have trouble connecting devices that are USB 2.0 (which all new devices are now - since 2001).

To double check, use your Device Manager on the PC to look up the USB device and see what is written.

If you are using XP then do the following:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. In the Control Panel double-click the Systems icon.
  5. In the System Properties window click the Hardware tab.
  6. In the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button and you will see a list of devices.
  7. Click the + button next to the word the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
If it is USB 2.0 then it should say something like USB Enhanced or USB High Speed, this means it is USB 2.0 compatible.

I hope this helps. Please rate. Regards,

My usb port is not 2 - I keep getting a message that states that I need to get a hi speed usb device host controller. Where can I get this? I have an ibm thinkpad r40.


On some laptops that are older (an IBM R40 is a bit older) there are no high speed usb ports but if you plug in a usb device that is USB 2.0 into a usb port that is not high speed, the operating system (Sounds like Windows XP) will display that message even though you don't have a high speed usb controller. The USB device will still work but at a slower speed. You can ignore this message without a problem

RE: EXTERNAL HARDRIVE..


Disconnect the USB drive
Boot to Safe Mode (F8 at boot), then open device manager (Right Click MY Computer, Properties, hardware tab, devicemanager button) then find the USB Root hubs and delete them
Reboot in the normal mode, go back to device manager, usb root hubs, right click each, properties, power management tab, uncheck the check box to let windows power off the hub (On by default)
reboot, connect drive, see if it detects.
If it doesn't. open Disk Management (Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000
and see if it is seen then but has a conflict with the drive letter.
If that doesn't resolve, try drive on another system.

A-hi speed usb device is plugged into a non-high spped usb hub


this usually happens when you plug a 2.0 usb device into a 1.0 device. If your appliance works then i wouldn't worry about it but if you have older technology then it may be time to upgrade
