I need gigaware pci card express drivers for usb 3.0 card


I did a little digging and found that Radio Shack actually stopped carrying the Gigaware card, BUT they have a new card from Startech and guess what it looks almost exactly identical to. Long story short I tried the drivers for the Startech version and it installed without a hitch and detected the card right away.

Here are the drivers I used.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

I have an Acer Veriton X275. It has 8 USB ports. My USB wireless mouse/keyboard, printer, and phone charger all work on any one of the 8 ports. A Scan Snap machine will usually get picked up...


Make sure the system has the latest BIOS version from Acer website. Go into the setup utilty and load the system default settings even if you've never changed anything. See if the system responds differently. If it does not, then the problem could be driver related. A good driver update program may have success in finding updated drivers for imbedded devices like USB controllers. There are a few freeware programs available, but the good ones cost money. Hope this helps.

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also

I have a dell computer I think its a 3100 and none of the three usb ports are working. Is there a way to have this fixed?


dear,
have you install the new windows..
is it you first try..

If you have installed the windows and the usb ports are not working, you need to install the drivers of the motherboard and can be got from this site..
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_3100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=-1&impid=-1

you need to select your operating system and the other selection and can recieved the drivers..

if it was working fine and immeditely, it stopped working due to some reason then again do this step..
hope it will surely fix the issue...
By the way, if this method doesnt work, then you have check whether the usb ports are enable from the CMOS setup by pressing DEL of F key that if shows in startup to go in it..

goodluck dear....

After rebooting my cpu my mouse stopped working. My cpu does not recognize my mouse? The mouse works because i tried it on a different cpu. what can be causing this?


Did you try to reboot?
Do you have an optical mouse? (if yes: is the red light on?
(Then the mouse is recognized and you must configure your mouse options)
Did you try to connect your USB mouse to another connector?
Or if PS2 connector: Turn of the pc and connect the mouse and power on.
Did you install a new driver? (then uninstall this driver)
Try looking for the most recent mouse driver on the manufacturer site.

Keyboard, mouse, front USBs,DVD recorder not working


It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.

Mouse problems


Usually this happens whenthe software for the usb ports' controller is not as current as it should be.
check your computer manufacturers' website for and updated driver. USB 2.0 is what you are looking for. This can work in reverse also , if you are using a legacy USB device (mouse) and try to use USB 2.0 devices on the same controller it can cause problems as well. A new USB mouse is inexpensive, but always check the BIOS and make sure all USB ports are running and that the controller is enabled for them with current drivers.
If you post the computer make and model number i can be more specific with my advice.
Please post again if you need further assistance & thanks for using fixya..
Regards.

USB not decting plug n play devices


I would check the bios settings to make sure the motherboard settings relating to PnP are correct. Try playing around with those bios settings and see what works for you. Also try different usb ports, i have the same problems sometimes with certain ports on my desktop computer, try all of them at the front or the back of the computer. I would check the Compaq Presario website for drivers not AMD, installing new ones is a good idea just to make sure its not a driver issue.
