Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook
So I have been searching countless hours now trying to find a solution to my problem. I have a Compaq Presario R4000 with the original Windows XP Home edition along with SP2. Everything is up-to-date as far as Windows update and automatic driver downloads windows preforms after a reformat.
This has been a recent problem with nothing i can think that triggered it. Any USB device i plug in, whether is is my external hard drive, mouse, flash drive, ipod, HP printer........ literally anything to USB will not be recognized and most of them freeze my laptop instantly.
I have tried reformating, installing all sorts of USB hub controller drivers, working in safemode to remove all USB entries then letting Windows re-install them by itself (and from Windows CD). Nothing seems to work. I am convinced that it is a physical problem, as i read in a forum it could be inadequate power to run everything, but i dont know how it "just happened" all of a sudden.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am loosing hope
Buy USB hub that plugs into your PCI slot, about 30.00$

Did you try to buy a usb hub with power adapter? maybe it needs enough power to supply the devices.
