Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Inactive I/O ports (all)

Thanks for your suggestion, but unfortunately the problem wasn't solved. If I provide you with a little more information as to the problem would you be able to help me furhter.


The P.C. is a fresh build, upon completing the build I power up the P.C. and all components appear to function as they should with the obvious exception of the I/O ports, having plugged in all of the required hardware e.g. mouse/monitor/keyboard/speakers before powering up. The CPU doesn't appear to recognise them at which point I have no choice to switch off the P.C. and acquire help having no on screen opitons due to the monitor not being recognised.

The motherboard and processor, however are the only NEW parts, the rest of the components have been removed from another P.C.. Would used/second hand components (all working) affect a new build (or the I/O ports) and the initial start up RE: First time CPU component check etc?

Help I'm at my wits end LOL

Look forward to you reply by return

    The Mouse is connected to the USB and the keyboard is connected to the Ps2, all correctly connected. Still the problem persists.

  • gerard76 Jun 19, 2008

    I have just replaced the PSU with with one that accomodates a secondary (PWR2) 4 pin 12v supply for which I have a vacant socket for on the motherboard. Having checked and double checked everything and connected the secondary (4 pin) power flex to the motherboard, I now have an active monitor displaying what I can only describe and orange fuzz/static. Does this go anyway towards figuring out my problem? The P.C. is now only missing boot up text and the other USB and PS2 devices i.e mouse/keyboard/speakers.



    I feel I am one step closer to a solution, don't give up on me dude, we're nearly there!

Are the keyboard and mouse connected to your usb or ps2 ports? make sure you don't have them reversed if they're ps2. Let me know how you make out.

    Did you figure out the problem gerard? It's really puzzling to be honest with you. I can't think of anything except a grounding issue of some sort. We service over 300+ laptops/desktops per month and i've never seen this issue! Please let me know.

My computer crashed so I installed windows xp. The USB ports don't work and neither does the DVD drive


It sounds like you have not installed the chipset driver. Find your cd that came with the pc and install the chipset driver or go on line and download the latest driver.

I have a 320 Western Digital external drive. It works fine if I plug it directly into the computer usb drive. HOwever, I want to use it thru a hub cause it is difficult to get to the back of my computer. ...


Does your External drive have a seperate power supply? Or does it get its power through the USB port.

If it gets its power from the USB port then by adding a hub you are essentially dividing the amount of power supplied by the number of ports extended.

One possible solution that could solve that situation would be to get what is called a powered hub. Which is exactly as the name suggests. The Hub has an external power supply so that it can provide even power to all of the ports.

I hope this helps
If not please post an update and I can try to find a better solution
If you need more help please post what Model of WD ext drive you have (ie....My book, Elements, Passport etc...)

Thanks,
Dave
