    and here inlies the problem. the version I have is Media Center Edition which is basically a modified version of XP which only the computer manuf supports. They won't send me an installation cd b\c they want their techs to take control and do it so they can charge you. They won't even let you speak with a tech without charging you, even to just request the cd. I've had my rounds with them and it wasn't nice. I have a copy of XP Pro and I'm thinking I should just install it and call it a day unless anyone else has any suggestions.

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:


Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.



In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".



Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".



Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X


you will need to update/reinstall drivers

My Beyond Micr 250GB external HHD is not showing up on my PC running windows 7 and I have 2-1TB SATA HHD installed.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover lost files.

My touchpad left click wont work but left click and when i move it it works . i even installed Synaptics - input -synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad From windows update still the left click wont work...


I have this same problem on my pavillion dv6. sent it to warranty repairs twice they have replaced the keyboard, touch pad and mother board, worked about a week after last repair which took two weeks. I am sending it back on feb 10 for more replace parts and see if it works. I searched the web and I have not found any solution and hp won't even acknowledge the problem althoughit it is not limited to the hp product. Reconfigureing and downloading drivers etc. has done nothing but waste time. I am using usb mouse with touch pad disabled for now even that acts strange with the touch pad enabled.

Power light comes on but no accessories will work when plugged into USB ports


Steps:------
1.Plug in a different USB device in that USB port and check if it is working or not. If the 2nd device is working then the 1st USB device has gone bad. If none is working then try the steps mentioned below.
2.Unplug the powercable from the laptop and also unplug the battery. Press and hold the power button for 30-40 secs and then plug in the power cable and the battery and check.
3.click on START->right click on COMPUTER->click on MANAGE->click on DEVICE MANAGER->click on the symbol beside Universal Serial Bus Controller and uninstall all the USB ROOT HUB's and then restart the computer.
4.Run System Recovery from the Recovery Partion or Using the Recovery Disk.

Still if it remains then it is surely a hardware issue

Hp pavillion usb ports


They are right, some DVs have this problem. If you can live without the ports, then do it. If you can't, replacement is the only option.

My pc is not recognising my connected sandisk cruzer control stick?


Solution for ALL PCs with USB 2.0 ports.

1. Move it to the PRIMARY USB port.
2. Check your BIOS configuration to make sure your USB ports are enabled
3. Assign an IRQ to the USB ports ( this is done by Y/N setting in the BIOS )
