Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I installed the Maxtor OneTouch4 to my HP Pavilion PC. At the end of installation, the instructions said the system needs to reboot to complete so I hit enter. When it started to come back up, it got yo my blue Windows Xp screen and locked up. I had to unplug the Onetouch4 and reset my power to get it to come up. What am I doing wrong?

Generic problem for all Memorex DVD Players


I assume you are running windows. Windows installs external devices automatically. You need to reset your USB devices. You need to uninstall all your usb devices. Go to computer manager/device manager and select all USB devices and unistall them. Go to the start menu, click on run type compmgmt.msc. Find all your USB devices on the right side. Follow the instructions for each device to uninstall them by double clicking and then select uninstall. once you uninstall, click on the icon to scan for hardware changes located on the sub menu. Your operating system should recognize new hardware or reboot and the operating system should install them automatically again.Do not connect the device until you are logged on completely, connect it and the operating system should recognize the new hardware and install it automatically. Try this, I hope it helps.
