    The ports are normally identified by win 8.1 as usb 3 ports.

SOURCE: acer notebook usb not recognized

Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process.

Why wont steelseries recognise the laptopkeyboard???what do i do???

So, start out with plugging your keyboard in. Where do you have it plugged? It may be "USB 2.0", and if you have it plugged into a "USB 3.0" socket, it may not work. Try a different socket.

Try a different computer, perhaps the keyboard is bad.

Try a different keyboard, too.

Why my siyoteam 4 port usb 2.0 high speed hub not working in windows 8 hp laptop. i plug the port into the laptop but it cannot been seen in my pc, is there any thing can i do inorder this usb hub to work...

Perhaps the laptop port is designed for a usb 3.0 insert instead of a usb 2.0? Also try using compressed air to clean both connections. The hub male end and the laptop female end.

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.

Would you know the answer ?

The packard bell easynote h5315 has 3 USB 2.0 ports. The many product reviews on the internet don't say exactly which ones are high speed. Ultimately it doesn't really matter unless you are thinking of copying large files greater than 1GB then it will take longer on a low speed port.

To test this I suggest you put a file larger than 500MB on a flash drive, then plug the flash drive into the first port and copy the file back to your notebook. Take note of the time it takes. Repeat this step with ports 2 and 3. Review the results together, the port/ports that copied the file the fastest are your high speed ports. The port/ports that took longer to copy the file are low speed. If all the ports take similar times to copy the file then all 3 are low speed ports.

1) Can the IBM ThinkPad X40 series of Notebook PC connect to a wireless broadband router?

I would plug in a USB wireless adapter that is Wireless N.

Intel Pentium M processor, that with the highest option model, operates at 1200Megahertz. (1200MHz)

B) Ram Memory:
512MB's of PC2700 ram memory. (DDR Sdram at 333MHz. SO-DIMM ram memory)

Like a slug crawling along in deep winter.

USB broadband, and USB mouse?

Enough USB ports for this? There are 3 USB ports.

My recommendation is No, sir, or ma'am.
Hate to rain on a parade, but kids expect the laptop to perform gaming on top level, connect to the internet at lightning speed, and pour a soft drink at the same time.

Is my problem the internet signal or the wireless router?


If you have been using this router/laptop for 3 years successfully and then all of a sudden it does not work, you may attempt to try an external USB wireless adapter. Does your T30 have 802.11b connectivity built in? It is not unusual for these to go out. Before you buy one check first to see if you can still access wirelessly at other hotspots? Or does the problem follow you around? If you can successfully connect at other hotspots then this is not the problem and it may very well be your router. Is there any way you can get a substitute rouer to test with before you purchace one? A friend maybe? It is probably one of these 2 issues. If you find your wireless is out on the laptop and you go to purchace a USB wireless adapter, go for a Linksys and make sure it is at least wireless "g" or "n" and not "b". And if you do not have enough USB ports then you may want the flat wireless card adapter that plugs in to the PCMCIA slot on the laptop. This can be Linksys also - I use this one (flat card) - "Wireless G Notebook adapter with SRX" Model Number WPC54GX. It is great and has speed boost. If your built in wireless on the laptop is bad, then any of these external adapters you choose to use will simply take over the wireless reception. Good Luck.
