Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn off your computer.

  2. 2

    Unplug the power supply, remove your laptop batter, and wait at least 30 minutes before returning the battery and power chord to the laptop. As explained by Trouble Fixers, a cache of data from your USB device is stored on the motherboard. This cache is not completely erased until the motherboard fully discharges following power-down. Once the cache is cleared, most USB errors will be fixed.

  3. 3

    Turn on your laptop computer.

  4. 4

    Try to use the malfunctioning USB port. In most cases, simply turning off and unplugging the laptop will help remedy the problem. If a problem persists, continue with Step 5.

  5. 5

    Click on the "Start Menu."

  6. 6

    Click to open the "Control Panel."

  7. 7

    Click on "System and Maintenance."

  8. 8

    Click on the "Device Manager." A new window will open that lists all hardware and external devices currently installed on your laptop computer.

  9. 9

    Scroll the list until you notice the heading "USB Root Hub." Click on this option.

  10. 10

    Select the USB port that reads "Unknown Device." All other, functioning USB ports should say "unused port" or list a specific external USB device.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the Unknown Device port and then select "Update Driver." According to the tech-help website, Amit Bhawani, this will trigger an automatic update of the USB drivers. If no new drivers are found, the old driver will also refresh and repair. In many cases, a malfunctioning port is simply caused by outdated driver software. With the latest drivers, your port can be used with current USB devices without any problems. If problems do reoccur, then the port may be physically damaged and you'll need to take the laptop computer to a computer repair technician to get a new USB port installed.

My computer can not read data card. os is vista...can u plz helpme in this regard?


Three things can be at fault here:
1 the card itself might be dead - test it in another pc with another card reader.
2 the card reader might be malfunctioning - test it by using another card, a different type of card(if it has that capability) and in a different USB (if it's removable)
3 USB connectors are faulty - check them by connecting some other USB device.
Replace the faulty part.

My pc is showing that the usb cable connected to the printer has malfunctioned or has not been recognised


Simplest thing to try is another USB cable. Still not working, then problem could be in the USB connector on printer.

Possible it could be a conflict with another connected USB device. Try unplugging all USB devices and wait for the PC to drop those connections. You can see these in the Device Manager. Then plug in just the printer.

Wd portable hd - device attached to this system is malfunctioned


It could be that the Hard Drive inside the enclosure still works, not sure if you care about voiding any warranty as opening it up will likely do, but there is a very slight chance that the Hard Drive itself will let you get the data off it. I am not sure what the connector to the drive is on the inside though as I have not taken one apart myself, :).
