Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook

BT Port When I check the Ports on Device Manager on my Vista PC, it states "BT Port" for all the com ports. I think as a result of this I am getting conflicts when I want to use the com ports for other things (in this case modem connection). Any idea how I can fix this problem?

How to check fo faulty USB port


W 7
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.
for XP or earlier
Click start right click on computer select properties 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 right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
Check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts Check if USB Ports Are Damaged

USB ports are an important part of your computer's hardware.
Many devices connect to the computer via USB, such as music players, cell phones and digital cameras.
This connection lets you charge your devices and manage files on them.
When you connect a device to a USB port, it is typically recognized automatically.
If not, there may be a problem with the port. USB ports sometimes fail on their own, or they may be damaged by force.

Plug a variety of devices into the USB port you think is damaged.
If none of them work, the port is probably broken.
Connect the same devices to the USB ports on a different computer.
If they work, this is another indication your ports may be damaged.
Run Windows Update on your computer to ensure your devices and computer function together and have the latest drivers.
Click "Start," then type "Update" in the search bar.
Click on "Windows Update," "Check for Updates" and "Install Updates."

Open the Windows Device Manager by clicking "Start," then typing "device manager" into the search bar.
Click the Device Manager link when it appears.
Click on each of your USB ports.
In the Properties window, look for "This device is working properly."
If this is displayed for each USB port, they are not damaged, but there may be a problem with your device instead.
Click "Update Driver" next to each USB port in the Device Manager, and Windows searches for and installs the latest driver.
If one can't be found, go to your computer manufacturer's website, and download the driver there. Try to use the USB port again.
Sometimes, outdated or damaged drivers result in a non-working USB port.

Open your computer case by unscrewing or sliding off the side cover.
Use a can of compressed air to clean out the dust from inside, especially from within the USB ports.
If your USB ports are hooked up to the motherboard, remove the cable, then replace it.
These actions sometimes help to fix non-working ports.

I think, i am having a usb port malfunction. i just formatted my lg-ibm xnote lm50a with xp3 and installed all the drivers but all my usb ports don't function. it does not detect printers and mouse...


Hi,

Have tried installing the CHIPSET Driver for the Motherboard?

Check the device manager for any bang on the devices meaning either a driver is missing or a wrong or incorrect driver is possibly installed, unless a REX "x" is foung beside USB hub then that would mean that is it busted or damaged.

but it is unlikely to have a USB hub/port to be busted unless physically, install the chipset driver and check again make sure you restart the system after installing the CHIPSET driver to make sure that it is properly installed in Windows and that it will detect the USB ports in device manager.

My USB ports won't work on my gigabyte MA69VM-S2 mobo with win7


Unlikely to be issues with the OS. Have you recently upgraded to Win 7 from Vista or XP? and did the USB ports work with this OS?
Do ALL usb ports fail or is it just one or two and are these the front USB's or rear USBs?

Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0


Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.

Thinkpad T20 won't recognize usb port


You can get a PCMCIA adapter with 4 USB v.2.0 slots on eBay. It requires power from the USB port on the laptop, but the pigtail connector is included. Works like a charm! Comes from China just like everything else in this country.

Problems with e800BT and com ports


I use an e830 with a Holux GR230 without having any problems. The e830 uses already the latest stack from Toshiba so no need to upgrade. For the e800, hm depends on what kind of BT SD card you use, meanwhile Toshiba sells the BT SD3 card. Anyway, I would recommend to use the latest BT stack from Toshiba for your Toshiba BT SD card.
