Question about Acer Aspire T120 PC Desktop

USB pots not functioning

Hi mewms,

I have an Acer Aspire T120E. There are 2 USB ports on the front which I used to use regularly, following a problem with a WORM, which now seems to have been flushed out, the USB ports do not work. The ports at the back seem to be ok. Can you tell me what happened to them and how to get them working again.
I didn't get an OS disc with the computer but I have a disc that I burned as per instructions but I don't get a good feeling from it. I'm desperately hoping that you can help me. Regards, Julie

Generally there can be multiple reasons the usb do not function.

  1. the usb front hub is no longer working
  2. the chip set drivers need to be updated
  3. a virus/worm/trojan
  • download avast free and schedule a boot scan
  • download everesthome and google the northbridge chipset and download any updates.

How to remove front panel to repair the front usb ports on an Acer Aspire E380 -?


The front USB connectors are usually either molded into the front case or held in via a clip or screws. Unfortunately, when they go out due to the tab within the USB port breaking, they are not easily replaced as each manufacturer creates their own proprietary connector...not the USB part but the hardware to hold the USB in place. So you will find the hardest part of this project finding the right connector or "jerry-rigging" the new one to fit.

Another alternative is to remove everything from the old case...the mainboard, all the drives and whatever else can be moved, and put it into a new case. If your current power supply is good and of a standard size, etc...you can get a used case for around $10.00 and put all the other things from the old one in it. Fortunately, this series of Acer seems to be pretty much generic so everything should fit....just make sure the "new" case has good front USB ports.

I don't have a webcam on my ACER Aspire M3910-2.


This model Acer does not have a built-in WEBcam.
You need to purchase an USB WEBcam and install the WEBcam driver on your Acer.

At the front of computer, the 2 usb are not working


Hello

If you have recently formatted or opened your case, this might just be a case of some wires not pluged in correctly, or chipset drivers not installed. Try installing chipset drivers again, if that does not work open your case and trace the wires back from the front panel and plug them out and back in again. Really hope this can help you.Please rate this.

Best regards

Pc acer aspire T650. My card reader fail so i took it out from my pc. Since then I have problem to make my pc read my external HD and the 2 usb in front don't work and since a very long time. Where can I...


hi,
Infact front USb ports are connected with the card reader it self.If you are havingthe separate connectors then you will have to connect those to motherboard to make those USBs to work.

You can get any 9 in one card reader from nearest hardware vendor and deploy it.

thanks

I need to replace the Hard drive and RAM in my ACER Aspire T120E - 8870 but am unsure of which type of each to buy. I can't find anything about it on the internet, please help.


The aspire uses the normal DIMM modules
512MB 184pin PC3200 DDR DIMM.
1GB 184pin PC3200 DDR400 2.5V nonECC nonRegistered low profile DIMM.

And you can plug in and IDE Harddrive upto make 160 GB on this system , for a bigger hdd . you would either need windows xp service pack 2 or the drivers from the manufacturer
