Hi,
unless your a very competant motherboard components repairer.
this is beyond repair. i,d suggest taking it to a repair centre, where they will replace the motherboard. and unfortunately a large invoice to go with it. probably more cost effective to look at a replacement laptop.

What is a drawbacks of disabling usb power manager i have acer travelmate 290 laptop, and wen ever i use high speed Internet modem it some times shows the message "the usb port has exceeded its ports...


Personally, I would favour the use of a High Speed Powered Hub. It will ensure no damage to the USB Port due to overloads.
Less than a tenner on Ebay is a good price for piece of mind.

The USB Ports on my ACER TravelMate 2350 Series Laptop, I have deleted the USB Port files from Device Manager and the machine reinstalled them when I re-started but it didn't change anything. I downloaded...


Hello,

I'm guessing your USB ports don't work or does it always ask you to install them. If you have your Windows XP license key at hand, please try downloading and installing the following...

Acer TravelMate 2350 XP Chipset Driver

Reboot. It might ask you to do a reactivation, or not.
Please recheck if your USB ports still work. If not, restart your machine, hit F8 continously until you get many options - choose the option "Safe mode" and press Enter. Check if it picks up USB in this Safe mode.

What you can also try, is that you have 3 different USB 2.0 ports on your machine. Try each one separately and see if one of them works. I would also recommend to see if the USB device you are trying to use is actually functional.

Can't make webcam work on Acer Travelmate 4500


This sounds like a USB issue. Not all USB ports on laptops are created equal (they should be but they are not) some usb ports supply enough voltage and current to run usb items properly and some dont. It is always better to run direct from the computer / laptops ports .

If you cant do this then use a HUB but make sure the HUB HAS IT"S OWN POWER SUPPLY !

Also make sure you always use the same port and swapping them around does not always work for all hardware.

Hi i have an acer laptop 5000 series the usb ports will not work saying power surge overloaded,would buying a usb card solve the problem.Any help would be much appreciated.


Hi,
are you using windows xp sp2, this issue normally occurs with it
a fast fix is:
go to start menu> run > type in devmgmt.msc > ok

1) Device Manager will open

2) Locate "Universal Serial Bus controllers" in the list and expand

3) Select the first USB Universal Host Controller.

4) Right click and select "Properties"

5) Go to the "Advanced" tab

6) Check "Don't tell me about USB errors"

7) Click "OK"

Note. If you have multiple host controllers then they should all be affected by the above action.

8) Close Device Manager

further Queries are welcome

How to use my usb port for booting my acer tm290 series?


First off your BIOS must have a "Boot to USB Hard Drive" option available. Then you need to configure the drive boot order; USB-HD -> CD -> IDE -> SCSI. Then the micro-drive must be formated with the "Boot" or "Active" partition flag enabled. If you are trying to boot Ubuntu there are several tools you can download that format the USB drive and set the boot flag for you.
