Averatec all-in-one remote stopped working after having to reinstall my Vista

Did CompUSA reinstall the infrared sensor that sits on the unit? If you only took them the tower then they probably did not re-install it. This device should plug into the USB port on the back of the computer. From what I remember it is an inch square device that is black with a cord (possibly multiple) coming out the back. If this device is plugged into the computer, then check to see if it is installed in device manager.

Hope this helps, if you need more info just add to this post.

Power light comes on but no accessories will work when plugged into USB ports

1.Plug in a different USB device in that USB port and check if it is working or not. If the 2nd device is working then the 1st USB device has gone bad. If none is working then try the steps mentioned below.
2.Unplug the powercable from the laptop and also unplug the battery. Press and hold the power button for 30-40 secs and then plug in the power cable and the battery and check. on START->right click on COMPUTER->click on MANAGE->click on DEVICE MANAGER->click on the symbol beside Universal Serial Bus Controller and uninstall all the USB ROOT HUB's and then restart the computer.
4.Run System Recovery from the Recovery Partion or Using the Recovery Disk.

Still if it remains then it is surely a hardware issue

I cant find the icon for the webcam on my averatec D1002UHCE-1 Al

You'll survive this one, I daresay.
How's it going as far as the USB plug?  Maybe the power fell out of the USB hub or the webcam and you get to reconnect that as well as the USB connection?  If things aren't perfect then, try going into control panels and seeing if the OS lists the webcam among the A/V devices.

Sometimes USB ports go bad, sometimes the power thing falls out and throws me for a loop, sometimes it's just a virus and you need to stop deferring the antivirus scans and such (or run one; just pick a trusted source, or for example refer to articles etc. at or  so your system can heal up and recognize the USB ports the virus was thinking of commandeering.  Sorry about that run-on sentence.

Need to connect a wired keyboard

Do you have a PS/2 or USB keyboard? If it is a PS/2 keyboard (with a round 6 pin connector), you will need a PS/2 to USB converter. Plug the round end onto the keyboard wire and the USB end into either one of the side USB ports (next to the audio jacks and memory card reader) or one of the back USB ports )next to the DVI port). If you have a USB keyboard, plug into any available USB port. (You could also use a USB hub.) Make sure that you have the ports live (not turned off for security or power-savings).

I hope this helps.

I have an Averatec all in one and how do you connect the wireless mouse?

Wireless mice have two parts. The mouse which needs regular battery charging and the receiver. The receiver is a USB device that plugs into any of the USB ports on the back (near the DVI port) or on the side below the audio jacks. Plugging into a USB hub is an option but can give an extra area of trouble-shooting when it fails.

If the port doesn't work, try a different one. Check that the USB ports aren't disabled for security or power-savings. Make sure the receiver is showing that it is active and that the mouse has good batteries.

One of the biggest issues can be waking from sleep with a USB device. This is changed in the advanced power savings in Windows.

I hope this helps.

(since my wired mice need to be replaced every few years, I suspect wireless mice have similar failure issues.)

Anytime I plug something in to the USB port it give a error message that states, Power Surge on the USB port. What can I do to fix this?

The USB device could be drawing more current than the USB port can supply or the USB port may be faulty.
Get a powered USB hub and plug it into your computer's USB port and then plug the USB devices into the powered USB hub.

Power surge on hub port on my computer

Try unplugging everything from the hub and if that doesn't work then disable the hub.
You can either buy a new hub or buy a USB card. Both get the same results.

A-hi speed usb device is plugged into a non-high spped usb hub

this usually happens when you plug a 2.0 usb device into a 1.0 device. If your appliance works then i wouldn't worry about it but if you have older technology then it may be time to upgrade
