If this is a new motherboard, make sure the little tabs sticking from the back of the face plate are not inserted into the usb ports. I would also check the onboard USB ports (9 pin connectors with USB1, USB2 etc.. printed by them). Take the front panel cables off incase if you've connected them the incorrect way.

Either the usb is shorted or a device is shorted. U can unplug the usb devices one at a time and reboot to find it or U can open the pc up and unplug the usb connections to the mb. If all the devices R unplugged and it still does it, then it's repair shop time or replacement time.

I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

DX4380G wont power on


The computer power switch may be faulty - they often have a fragile plastic link which fails.
People say they are built to fail just when they are out of Warranty.
It may well be a power pack failure in the comp - they are not too expensive but need to be fitted by a pro.
If you are in the UK you can still return to the seller or maker and say 'This computer failed after only 13 months (or whatever) and so is NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE'

Toshiba qosmo g10


Information:
Many Toshiba laptops come with the factory software recovery image stored in a special (hidden) area on the hard disk. From this special hidden system recovery image, you can restore your computer to its factory-fresh software condition by following these steps:
  1. Make sure the computer is turned off ("Shut-down" from the Windows Start menu)
  2. Remove any peripherals such an external mouse, keyboard, monitor, USB flash drive etc.
  3. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in and working.
  4. Press and hold down the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard while powering on the computer. Release it when the recovery warning screen appears.
  5. If the recovery process offers a choice of Operating Systems, select the appropriate one for you.
  6. A warning screen appears, stating that when the recovery is executed all data will be deleted and rewritten.
  7. Click Yes to continue.
  8. When the Toshiba Recovery Wizard opens select "Recovery of Factory Software" or the appropriate option for your needs.
  9. Continue to follow the directions restarting as necessary.
Please note that the process may vary slightly from machine to machine, that you may be asked to insert disks (multi-disk packages) and that the process may take one to two hours to complete. The recovery process will require you to restart your computer several times.
As you use the recovery process you will have several options. One of these may be to create a custom size partition. Follow the directions on screen for this and other options as prompted. When in doubt, it's usually best to accept the default, or pre-selected option.

I have just aquired a emachines computer and im wanting to connect it to a wireless router but its not allowing me to do this.


If you are using an eepc with a linux operating system you will need a wireless driver, go to the eepc support on another computer and download driver, alternatively get a copy of puppy linux, load onto usb and run directly from usb, it may have the driver inbuilt into puppy, a third prob is having to turn the wireless key on but as its a desk comp this wont happen, does the computer have wireless capability.

My Philips Freevents sometimes wont turn on and when it does it shuts down without me shutting it down


If the computer shuts down with no warning then it could be your power supply is faulty, which explains it not turning on sometimes. Just check the back of the PC to make sure it is plugged in properly (TURN OFF ALL POWER TO THE PC BEFORE CHECKING). if this does not help, get it looked at by your local qualified computer technician if you don't know how to replace a power supply. Also, a connection to the motherboard to the Power button may have a fault somewhere, which also means take it in for a look if you don't know what to do. If it does give you warning with 'Windows is shutting down' it can be the following things.
1- Your power button on the PC is sticky and movement causes the computer to think you have pressed it and so it shuts down, which can also explain why it wont turn on all the time. Just use some household grease cutter and spray it on the outside of the button, turn off the power supply to th computer and press it in and out a few times to get it back to working order
2- A Virus is shutting your computer down on you, but this does not fully explain why it won't turn on but this could be an effect of the virus so use a virus checker to see if this is the case
3- Your computer system is getting too hot and usually a computer has setting which shuts it down before permanent damage happens. Check your PC fans to make sure they are running and feel around where your computer sits to see if its warm or hot and replace the fans or put your PC in a cooler environment

Hope This helps

Computer won't start up!


Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
