WHERE DOES MY STICK GO IN AN IBM THINKPAD LAPTOP


The model number is located either on the bottom of the right corner of the screen and on the label on the bottom of the laptop and the location and number of USB ports vary with different models.
.
The USB port is a connector/port that is 12x5 mm in size, some model thinkpad have onlt one USB port and some have 2 USB ports.
The USB ports are usually located at the back or at the sides of the laptop.

The T30 model has 2 USB ports at the back of the laptop located between the LAN and PS2 connectors.
The T40 model has 2 USB ports located at the left side of the laptop.
The A31p model has 2 USB ports located at the back left hand corner of the laptop.
The R32 model has 2 USB ports, one is located at the back left hand corner and the other is located on the left hand side of the laptop.

Power surge on hub port, the usb mass storage has exceeded the power limits of its hub port


One of the devices attached to the USB needs more power than what the USB can deliver so it shuts it down. Either that device needs an external power source or it's defective.
If nothing is plugged in the USB sockets then the defect is internal - a short on the motherboard. You will need to take it to a repair shop to see if the short can be fixed, otherwise you will have to replace the entire motherboard.

I just bought an ASUS notebook but the USB cannot read any device what do i do?


Hi,Some USB devices are not APM/ACPI friendly and may not operate properly after resuming from Standby or Hibernation. Some of these steps may not apply to your computer. Test the attached USB device after performing each step.

1. Verify that a USB port and an operating system with USB support are being used to attach a USB interface external device to a ThinkPad system.

Note: The following is an example image of a ThinkPad system USB port
USB port


2. Verify that the latest BIOS and embedded controller for the ThinkPad system has been installed.

View the latest BIOS files for all ThinkPad systems(-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/BMOE-3VAM8Y.html)

3. Verify that USB is enabled in BIOS.
* For ThinkPad A, G, R, T, X and Z series systems

1. Turn on the computer.
2. While the "Press F1 for BIOS Setup Utility" or "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message is displayed at the lower left area of the screen, press the F1 key, blue Access IBM, or ThinkVantage button.
3. Select Config and then click USB. The window should list USB BIOS support as [Enabled].
For ThinkPad 600, 600E, 770, 770E/ED, 770X, and 770Z systems

1. Press and hold the F1 key and then turn on the computer. Hold the F1 key until the Easy-Setup menu appears. If a password prompt appears, type the correct password.
2. Select Config.
3. Select Initialize and then click OK.
4. Click Exit, click Restart, and then click OK to restart the system

4. Verify that the USB device and any required drivers were installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
This may require removing the USB device and the drivers, and then reinstalling the USB device and the latest drivers.

5. Verify the USB device works on another machine, if available.

6. Verify another USB device, if available, works on this machine.

7. Verify that the USB device is USB 1.1 or 2.0 compliant.
Plugging specific USB 1.1 compliant devices into a USB 2.0 compliant port will cause an error message dialog box to appear. That dialog box details that a non-high speed device has been attached to a high speed port. The device should function normally, but at a slower speed than if a 2.0 device is attached to 2.0 port. Most USB 1.1 devices will function normally in USB 2.0 ports.

8. Verify that external power is attached if required.
Some USB 2.0 devices will require additional power from external sources or an additional USB port to function correctly in USB 1.1 compliant computers.

9. Verify that the latest Microsoft Windows Service Pack has been installed for the operating system installed on the computer.
There are updates and fixes to USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 available in Service Packs.

10. If an operating system was installed from a retail CD, then refer to installing USB 2.0 support on ThinkPad systems.

11. Test the USB port for errors.
Run the PC Doctor diagnostics for all current ThinkPad systems. PC Doctor for DOS is available by pressing the F11 key or the blue Access button during startup to access the predesktop menu area. If these methods are not available for your system, then PC Doctor for DOS may be downloaded. This DOS version requires two or more floppy diskettes depending on the ThinkPad system.

12. If these steps have not solved your problem:
Refer to "Need more help?"

You could also try downloading an updated/fresh copy of the drivers for my specific model notebook from Asus's web site and just reinstall over the old ones.

And if you don't understand much about it, i would advice you take it back from where you bought it from and get a replacement if it's on guarantee...

Thanks for using fixya....

Hi i have a R32 think pad.... it cant support my external hard drive.. can i upgrade the hardware.. 1.1 to 2? cant i buy a 4 port usb.. 2.0 and plug that in will it work??


Your laptop has USB 1.1. It won't support anything running 2.0 because of power constrictions. 2,0 has a power line and 1.1 does not. as far as upgrading the hardware, the chipset is not designed for 2.0 so it will run a 4 port 2.0 as 1.1 because there is no provision for power (voltage). Hope this helps.

IBM Thinkpad R32 2658. USB recognizes devices but will not run them. Using a cardbus for now, but need that slot for wireless card soon. Is this a spendy fix?


Have you got SP3 installed from MS, if so what are the USB devices you are trying to run??

Do they have installtion driver disks?? If so you must install them BEFORE plugging the device in.

Do these devices show up in another PC???

IBM THINKPAD R32 Tryin buttons to boot won't work?


Normally when as you bootup press F12 and you get a list of devices that you can select to boot up.
If the doesn't work go into the BIOS setup and go to the boot order configuration and set the CD as the first boot device. Later you can change it back if you wish.

I have a Western Digital Passport that works fine


Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA. If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
