This could be drivers out of date or bios out of date
go to www.majorgeeks.com
look for drivers in the menu
then click to check and update your drivers

but it may be wiser to update your bios in the same way first
then reboot
then go back to majorgeeks for your driver upodates and reboot

then try your usbs one at a time as some times putting in wrong slot makes for
malfunction

The emachine model KAWE0 is with operating system windows xp sp1 doesnot recognise any usb device.


Good day sir, hi, usually its one or two ports that does not recorgnise a usb device, but if all ports does not recognise the usb device, check the CMOS setup. check this out;
  • one or two ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a local fault, try to check the CMOS setup, this could also be the port itself is the faulty one having loose connection.
  • all ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a system fault, check again the CMOS setup if the USB port is enabled, check the USB device itself also. to make sure use another pc to test the usb device.
A computer virus can also cause the usb port to malfunction, run an anti virus software, if possible you can reinstall the XP and test the USB port afterward.

If all else fails, you can buy a USB card and plug it on the expansion slot on your PC.

You have a "root-kit" computer-virus on your keyboard.
It is preventing your copy of Windows from showing anything in the "Network Connections" display.

From a different computer, search for "sysinternals rootkit revealer". Download the software to a USB memory-stick, and then move the USB device to your computer, and run the root-kit revealer, to remove the computer virus.

Is this a USB connection? Try a different USB port. If it still won't work, go to: MY COMPUTER: PROPERTIES: DEVICE MANAGER. See what it says in there about USB DRIVERS and HARD DISC DRIVERS.

How can i remove the hard drive from my packard bell club 79 computer?I have some pics on there i would like to put on my new pc but the old packard bell no longer connects to the net and as it had win98...


If you have a router with two thernet ports you can connect them together using this.
Otherwise you can take the hard drive out and connect it to your new computer but this can be tricky to do.
The other thing you could do is buy a USB hard disk caddy. Fit you hard drive into this and then connect it to the USB port of your new computer. Make sure the caddy will take your size and type of hard disk.

I have a maxtor 250GB black usb 2.0 hard drive that is no longer recognised by my PC. The usb port works OK with other USB appliances. Its not a high speed 2.0 port but thats not been a problem in the...


Try connecting this drive to another PC/laptop. If the hard disk does not get recognised, you may have to seek help from Maxtor / authorised service personnel to diagonse the issue with the hard drive. Given that there is circuitry in between the actual physical disk and its USB port connector, chances are that the data on the hard disk would be safe and the intermediate circuitry may have suffered a brown-out. Good luck!
