Considering that if the USB is fine and and working systems, here is simple
solution! Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that?s it! Note
that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern
computers don?t really turn off when you press the power button as the
motherboard still gets power.
First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the
computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the
motherboard needs to be ?rebooted? also because something can go wrong,
i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor
on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be
back to recognizing all devices!
So, first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power
button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Remove the battery and
press and hold down the Power Button of your laptop for a few seconds.
Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that ?USB device not recognized? Windows
Otherwise if the USB is faulty you may claim the warranty as the USB Pendrives are usually under 10 months warranty cover. CreativeTECH
Hi thayal, systems shut down because of over heating. This is normal so nothing burns up. Try opening the case & clean the CPU fan. Remove any & all dust from the fan blades. Use a clean non used paint brush to help loosen any dust build up. Than blow the entire system out with canned air. Blow out the power supply as well. When finished put the case back together & see if the system shuts down.
Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software. That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!
Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
follow the power cable from the PSU to the motherboard and see if the 21 connection has melted to the motherboard.
