It is more like an inside electronic problem like;loose connections/failure in circuit board, make sure your power supply/source is earthed or earth the pc independently.Earth the pc thru a copper wire to a grounded metal object thru the screws and bolts at the back of your casing.

Usb connection brack recionnection


Most external webcams directly hook up to a computer via a USB cable connection. However, if this cable is damaged, it will prevent the video signal from reaching the computer, rendering the web camera useless. Depending on the severity of the damage, you may be unable to correct the USB cable, but there are a few methods of checking and fixing the webcam's USB cable.

Disconnect the USB cable from your computer and check the connection port on the cable. If the cable is dirty or dusty, you will need to clean it to improve the connection and signal transfer. Spray a few shots of compressed air into the interior of the metal connection port. This will remove dust and other debris that may be stuck inside. Connect the USB port into a different connection port. Some USB connections do not accept all USB equipment, so changing the connection of the USB cable may correct any connection issues you are having. Look over the cable itself. If there are any tears or slight cuts in the wire, wrap electrical tape around it. This will seal off the damaged area while preventing any of the video signal from escaping through the open "wound." Delete the driver, then reinstall the driver for the webcam. The current driver may be damaged, so reinstalling it will correct the problem. Click "Start," "Control Panel," "System," "Hardware" and "Device Manager." Scroll through the list of drivers installed until you find the webcam listing. Right-click it and choose "Delete." Restart the computer, then insert the driver installation CD (provided with the webcam) and follow the onscreen prompts to install the driver back onto the computer.
Hope this helps.

Does it matter which usb port I connect a printer cable to?


No problem as to which port you plug in, but make sure the Com port/RS-232/USB Port is enabled to detect the hardware. The device won't detect the hardware if you haven't made the changes in BIOS or port enabled in device manager (system properties>hardware). Hope this solves the query.

Laptop Model : Dell XPS 1530 i think i m having some problems with the usb power issue. Problem 1: when i connect an external hard drive which have bigger capacity than 120gb, the power of the usb will...


It sounds like the motherboard is causing the usb ports to malfunction by allowing power surges into the power input to the ports.You maybe should try a powered usb hub to power your hardware or you may face motherboard replacement

My pc window can not recognize mp3 player


Hello

Connect your Sansa MP3 player to more than one USB port on your computer. Ensure that your computer USB port is not corrupt or disabled by testing at least two available ports. This is especially useful when you possess no other USB-based equipment.

Inspect your USB ports' status to ensure they are enabled on your computer. Right-click "My Computer" and launch "Properties" to verify the availability of such connections. Select "Device Manager" from the Hardware tab and click the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" from the list shown. If a red "X" is shown, the USB ports are disabled.

Ensure your computer is updated by clicking "Start" and launching "Windows Update" from the Programs menu. Alternatively, inspect your USB port connectivity through your motherboard BIOS settings. Note that BIOS access and settings varies by mother board manufacturer.

Scan your computer for new hardware changes. From the Device manager, click the "Action" menu and select "Scan for hardware changes" while your Sansa MP3 player is connected. Allow your computer to attempt to find any physical component recently added in the event it failed to previously detect it.

Connect your Sansa player to a different computer. Test the connection on a different system's USB port to verify that the Sansa device's own connection has not been damaged. Inspect the USB ports on the computer in question as well to eliminate the possibility of both systems having problematic USB ports.

Change your Sansa MP3 player's USB plug. Sometimes the head of the plug may lose contact with the appropriate circuits. Obtain a secondary USB port at your local retail store and test it on an updated computer system.

Taking forever to just connect to router


Try to connect the USB adapter to a different USB port on the back of your computer. Make sure the adapter is plugged in to the back of your PC not to the front.

Can't print or scan through USB port on Canon imageRUNNER 5070.


The port should be active. You can look for problems by right-clicking My Computer and then Properties. Under the Hardware tab, press the Device Manager button. Any hardware issues will show either a question mark or exclamation mark, disabled items with a red x. After the printer is connected, turn it on, then go to Start -> Control Panel. Here, go to add hardware. See if this finds it.

If not, have you added the printer after connecting it via USB under Start -> Printers and Faxes? What about inserting the installation CD before connecting the printer?
