Usb 2.0 ports not working on my emachines T3504

Hi,

I have an emachines T3504 desktop pc.

I've always used Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster to connect to my Westel router.

right now my pc says it doesn't recognize my linksys USB when inserted into the USB port.

I looked at the my computer/properties/hardware/device manager.... the PCI entry says the device is working.

The Linksys Compact Wireless-G appears to be working because when I put it in the USB port of our other home PC...that PC recognizes it is there...

any ideas? thanks so much for your help! mike

You may need to uninstall your current usb's and let Windows redetect them.

click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Click on tab HARDWARE, click on DEVICE MANAGER. Scroll down to UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLER. Delete everything there. Click on ACTION, SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. It should redetect and you should be good.

Where do you plug in the adaptor on the e machine for wifi


Depends on what kind of Wireless Adapter you are using

There's the Wireless Adapter Card

Comes in three styles of connection,

1) PCI Wireless Adapter Card,

2) And PCI-Express x1 Wireless Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1068811&CatId=2688

PCI-Express x4 style may be out there too.
(I've never bothered to look. I use the USB style)


A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI technology, goes in a PCI slot. Generally White in color, but NOT always,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_local_bus

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI Express technology, is used in a PCI-Express x1 slot,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

Top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Moving down, next is a PCI-E x16 slot
Next, PCI-E x1 slot
Next is a PCI-E x16 slot,
and the last one at the bottom is a PCI slot.

Notice they are all Yellow.
Color of connector does NOT matter.

What the expansion slot is, does........

Also there is a USB Wireless Adapter,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3970955&CatId=2704

This type of Wireless Adapter, plugs into any available USB port on the computer.

Front or back of an eMachines desktop computer, in any available USB port.

Any available open USB port, on an eMachines laptop.

(Or any computer manufacturer)

What is the model number of the eMachines Desktop PC?
Examples, T1090, T2460, W4685, D2246, etc.

I should be able to tell you what motherboard is used inside, and may have access to a link, to the Motherboard Manual.

Post back in a Comment.

One of the USB ports on my T3504 was damaged. Now none of the ports work. Can I purchase a USB expansion card to solve the problem?


a usb expansion port would work. its likely however that the pins in the damaged port are shorting out, try to look into the port and move any pins apart that are touching

What kind of wireless card is compatible?


The best thing to buy is a USB wireless NIC (network interface card). avoid linksys and netgear. Belikin, D-link, hole in the wall $5 one online. If you want an internal one then you will need a PCI wireless NIC. If you dont have any free white PCI slots on *********** board then you have to go with the usb. You should go with the USB anyway, plug it into one of the 6 ports you probably have and install. Always install the software.

Couldnt find the sound card driver for emachine T3504


your drivers are available here : http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T3504
make sure you dowbload the drivers correct for the operating system you're using as both xp and vista are there. download them to your desktop so you can find them to install.. install..reboot if prompted..
also make sure to remove any entries in the device manager that have a yellow ! or ? next to them before installing new drivers..
The device manager can be found by clicking START-CONTROL PANEL-- double click SYSTEM-select the HARDWARE tab at the top- click on device manager..

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.
