When you computer boots up you need to enter the cmos mode. Normallly it's the F-8 fuction key, but sometimes it can vary from pc to co. When you get inside the CMOS screen look for the usb ports, they should have a Enable/Disable. I am pretty sure that for some reason, the default is Disable.

Try this and let me know if this fixes the issue.

Where do I plug in the usb printer cord to a compaq presario


You can generally use any USB port to support a USB device. There are minor details such as speed but the computer will generally tell you if you plug a device into a slow (USB 1.1) port when the device will work better with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port.

The newer your computer, the more likely it is that you will have all faster ports.

Usb ports stopped working


Hi thedrogue429. it would be hard to tell if it's a hardware or a software problem because you hear something when you connect. You will have to try with other USB devices to see. In case you DID try with other devices and none of them worked. Get a PCI usb card. They cost prob $10 and you can install it yourself. It's really easy. In case that doesnt work you will need to reinstall Windows but anyways you will have more USB ports. I hope this helps and dont forget to rate and give positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

2.0 USB External Interface Compatible w Compaq USB Ports????


USB 2.0 is just faster.
If you have USB 1.0 ports on the computer the new drive will revert to that speed.

Ouch! The answer to your question is yes. The hard drive inside the tower has all your information on it (regardless of the condition of the rest of the PC) and can be transferred to another computer by making it a 'slave' drive. Then the computer's main HD (also called 'master' hard drive) can usually read from it. Rest assured, your data is still there.

If this helps, please rate this as "FixYa".

Good luck!
