Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it. Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Hope this helps.

NO NEED FOR CAPS!! You are the one who didn't back up your drivers to disc before reformat.

You need to use another PC and download the drivers from the manufacturers website.

The manual you need will be on the board manufacturers web page, howevr I will bet you have the case power switch and perhaps the reset switch on the wrong pins on the mother board. To check this, remove the switch leads from the mother board, then use a small screw driver and bridge the pins on the mother board a pair at a time. All of these leads plug on to the board in a line and not across the two lines of pins. when you get the mother board to fire up by this method geet a torch and look closely alongside the pins you will see the letters PWR SW or RS SW. It does not matter what polarity these two sets of leads are plugged onto both will work. The LED lights on the case front will only work if the polarity is correct but it will not do any harm if they are backwords. On the board you should se two sets of pins marked HDD and PWR these are the led light pins you will know you have them right when the usual red and green lights are working at the front of your tower.

Sounds like you need a new charger. If the charger doesnt fix it then try a new battery. Before you buy either one, check the charge port in the back of the laptop, sometimes they crack off and just need a bit of solder to make a good connection to the motherboard.

Hi, that machine will take DDR266, DDR333, or DDR400 RAM according to the Tech Specs. All the RAM in this class uses the same form factor, so they're interchangable on motherboards, but the higher speeds run faster. You can find the specs here:

That sounds heat related or possibly RAM. Open the side cover and check the CPU fan and heatsink for a dust buildup. You can clean it by gently blowing canned air on the fan and heatsink. While you have the cover off, re-seat the RAM modules. Make sure the PC is unplugged while you do this.
Good luck.
