Power on and off after installing VIA USB 2.0 hardware

After installing a VIA Technologies USB Port, my computer will not boot. It clicks on and off ...over and over and over...

I have not removed it yet to see if the new port is the problem.

Assuming it is, why would it cause this problem? My wife only has about 1 Gig of storage space.

you might try resetting the cmos
then you might try using a usb keyboard. I use a usb wireless keyboard with a touchpad and it does the job. Good luck. After you clear the cmos and then turn it back on it should start re-decting the hardware.

Hi, I try to plug my MP3 into one of my USB ports. Doesn't recognize it. 'Removable Disk (H:)' comes up in 'My Computer', but soon disappears.


There is a problem with your USB port
you should try getting them fixed which is a tough job, but you can try plugging your removable media into another USB port like USB ports in backside of the cabinet.
If you don't find any problem with your USB device then you must have been having problem with your Removable Media (Mp3)
If your MP3 Player is under warranty period then you can look for its repair (can be done if its out of warranty too, but it will charge you extra)
Solutions To work around the above issues, one of the below solutions could prove helpful:usb-device-not-recognized.jpg
  • Unsecure or Loose Connection
    Unplug the presently connected USB device (if any). It is quite possible that the connection is not secure and has become loose. Re-plug the USB device tightly and firmly into the USB port. This is one of the most common reasons for an error in detecting a USB device.
  • Scan for Hardware Changes in Device Manager
    Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the Start menu, select the Run option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click Ok. From the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes. This will make Windows scan & recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all opened device managers and control panels. Now, follow the above step and see if your computer detects the USB device.
  • USB Power Management
    Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management on the USB hub, follow these steps; Click Start, and then click Run. Type devmgmt.msc in the popup box, and then click Ok. Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed. 1. Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Power Management tab.
    3. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click Ok.
    Note: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.
Sometimes, simply unplugging the USB device and turning off the computer for twenty minutes and then restarting may solve the issue. If none of the above options have solved the problem, check the manufacturer's website for new driver information. It is possible that your drivers need to be updated. There could also be a possibility of hardware failure, which needs to be checked by a hardware expert

My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.


Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager
  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

Pc don't recogise new hardware


It sounds as if your power supply isn't putting out enough to support so many USB devices on your system. If you have an external USB Hub, do you have a power adapter plugged into it?

My laptops Usb drive is not working: no mouse no pendrive seems some software is missing what should i do


#1 Right click on my computer, go to properties, click the hardware tab in device manager. Look in the list for any yellow exclamation marks. Anything in this list with yellow exclamation marks are missing the software. Red X's indicated drivers are disabled. If this is the case then you need to download the chipset drivers for the computer. These can be found via the manufacturers website. #2 It could be that the USB port is bad and you just may to install a PCI controller card. This can be picked up at any computer retail store.

Memory upgrade


I like all the information you gave. However the information you are looking for is in the manufactures web site. goto search engine and enter your computers manufactures name followed by the word "support" find the site and then look up the details for your computer. The reason I say this is because each slot can only control a certain amount of memory. The manufacture will tell you what each slot can control and also the type of memory supported by your motherboard. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT> never mix memory. Make sure of speed and capacity. If you mix diffrent speed and capacities the results could end in total failure.
