Internet explorer 8 hangs on opening a web page


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There could be several reasons why IE8 is hanging. If you're using Windows Vista / 7 you may want to upgrade to IE-9. Click here to download IE-9

If you're using Windows XP, you can try the following:

1) Click here to: Reset Internet Explorer settings

2) Click here for: What to do if Internet Explorer stops responding

3) Make sure you have Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 installed on your PC. IE-8 only runs correctly with SP2 or SP3.

4) Re-install IE-8. Click here to Download IE-8 If you can't get to the internet on your PC with IE-8, use another browser if you have one. If you don't have another browser installed on your PC, download Firefox or Google Chrome to a USB thumb-drive from another computer and download one of them to your PC from there.

5) If you've (either, by accident or intentionally) downloaded a third-party browser helper, there may be a software conflict causing IE-8 to hang. To check, go to your Control Panel and select 'Add or Remove Programs'. Look to see if there is a 'third party' browser helper installed. If so, uninstall it.

6) If you're able to get to the Internet at all, go to Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) - download and install it. Click here to download. You may have something on your PC that MSE can help you with.

7) Make sure you have enough RAM in your PC. At the very minimum, Windows XP needs 512Mb of RAM. 1GB is better.

Hopefully this will help.

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

I sugest you get a new Windows XP SP2/SP3 CD/DVD for the instalation. It may be that the installation media you are using has problems. Another option would be to retry the installation with another CD/DVD Drive and see if the installation will complete. You can also use WinToFlash utility(www.wintoflash.sourceforge.net) to create a bootable USB drive with WinXP and install from it. Hope this solution helps.

First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

USB taking too long to transfer vista


Note that USB ports (in your computer) and USB devices can either be "USB 1" or "USB 2" speeds.

While "USB 2" to "USB 2" connections are up to 480 Mbits/second,
any "USB 1" to "USB 2", or "USB 1" to "USB 1", connections,
will max-out at only 11 Mbits/second.

So, check that you have a "USB 2" device.
then check that you are connecting to a "USB 2" port on your computer.

Give more details about your computer, and your USB device.

Device will work faster on USB 2.0 pop-up message occurs when USB Device is plugged in


That means that the USB drive that you have on your computer is either on the USB 1.1 driver and you have to update it or your computers USB is not capable of USB 2.0 speed. First thing you need to do is find out the model number and brand of your motherboard. Then go to the manufacturers website then look at the manual for the board to find out if you have USB 1.1 or USB 2.0. If you have USB 2.0 then download the latest drivers for your board. If you only have USB 1.1 then your only options is to buy a USB 2.0 to PCI card that will give you USB 2.0 or just stay with the USB 1.1

Hi-speed USB device plugged into non-hi-speed USB hub


Hi Shiva,

Did you try to boot into your BIOS and check the settings for your USB port? Often you can set the compatibility mode there.

Secondly, try to connect the usb device to different USB ports on your PC, they might not all be connected to the same controller (front or rear for example).
