Recently, when I insert a USB flash drive into my laptop's USB port, I get the message: This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a HI-SPEED USB 2.0 port.


Your laptop has USB1 port and the USB 2 message will appear if you plug an USB 2 device into this USB port.
You maybe able to upgrade the USB port to USB 2 if there is a BIOS upgrade available from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
If not you maybe able to get an USB 2 PCMCIA card to install into the PCMCAI slot on your laptop.

Dvd external thoshiba NB550D


You want an external dvd drive? Any type of external dvd drive will work because you will just plug it into the usb port.

If you want an internal dvd drive to replace the one you have inside the computer then just to to ebay and put your computer make and model followed by dvdrw drive in the search. Or you can remove the one screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the dvd drive and pull the drive out. You can also do a search on ebay for the model number on the dvd drive.

Problems installing printer Samsung 315 clp to laptop windows7


Do the following:
1. Insert the CD/DVD that comes with the printer into the cd/dvd drive in the laptop.
2. If you do not have CD/DVD then download the driver/software from Samsung website.
3. The software should start installing. If not find setup.exe and double-click it.
4. During the installation it will ask to connect the printer. Then plug the printer to the wall socket and turn it on. And insert the USB cable into the printer USB port as well as into Laptop USB port.
5. The printer will be detected automatically and necessary driver will be installed.
6. Wait for the installation to finish. Now you can use the printer and print document and photos.

Bought a Targus slimline usb dvd player to attack to my acer netbook. It will not play any dvd's. It keeps saying my disks may be corrupt. What do I do?


There is either a problem with your discs or the targus unit so first:
put in a disc and if it says that it's corrupt then take it out and try to play it in something else that you know works.
Then if it does play, it's the targus unit's fault. If it does not play then your discs are bad.

Targus External USB ADV01US not recognized by any PC, XP, Vista, or Win 7. Multiple USB Cables used. No power supply required by the drive, powered by PC.


Could be a disk problem of course. Make sure you try a desktop and not just laptops, they do not always provide enough power on the USB ports. Or try an external USB hub with a poer supply.

I just bought a new mouse for my laptop. It is a Targus Kaleidoscope Optical Mouse. For my HP Pavilion dv2700, I plugged it in and it will not work,it did install itself several times.Everytime I plugged...


First thing you need to do is to know that the USB ports of your laptop is really working. Insert another usb devices or storage such a flash disk. If the flash disk being inserted is not recognized by the system then the usb port you had inserted is malfunctioning or it is defective. But if the other usb devices like the flash disk is working then your new bought mouse is defective. Try to plug the usb mouse to the other ports available in your laptop.
