HP Pavilion won't read SDhc cards


Unfortunately you need more than a driver. There are hardware differences between SD and SDHC cards and if a device such as a card reader wasn't designed to read SDHC cards then merely updating a driver won't do anything.
You can buy an SDHC-compatible card reader which plugs into an available USB port for as little as $8 (certainly much less than $60).

Need to download data from old computer but need new power unit(bestec) computer 2003-5 vintage. have new windows7 how do I donwnload data from old computer


If your old computer is not working then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Plug this USB adapter into the USB port of your new computer and it will see the USB adapter with your old hard drive as an external storage device. You can then open the various folders and files and copy them to your new computer.

What type of wireless adapter do i buy for a hp pavilion a 6230n?


You can get a USB solution by companies like D-Link that plug right into a usb port like this http://www.dlink.ca/products/?pid=566 or an internal card that goes into a PCI express slot like this http://www.dlink.ca/products/?pid=549 . As to what model, it comes down to budget and preference, read reviews and shop smart. Generally D-link and Linksys are solid choices

HP s7700n - all USB ports have stopped working. Device Manager shows drivers are okay. I'm thinking the bridge chip on the motherboard has failed. Any other ideas?


Try to to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Can i add an additional hard drive to my hp a1320n desktop computer? I have a hard drive from a computer of mine thats power source/motherboard died out, and i would like to be able to use that hard drive...


Yes it is possible. It depends on the IDE/SATA ports present on the motherboard that how many hard drive/CD drive can be connected to it. Also you can buy an external casing for your old hard drive that will let you connect it with your existing computer using USB port.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

I need to add a hard drive to my HP a1220n Pavilion for Photoshop and other Graphic programs. How can I do it if there is no available slot? Please help.


Hi,

A desktop PC would normally have capacity for 4 IDE devices such as 1 CD/DVD, 3 HDs or any combination limited to a total of 4. Additionally, most current PCs have 2 SATA connection points. If for some reason all are occupied and hence your post "no available slot", you may want to consider using an external storage device attached via any USB port of your PC.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
