Hi,Some USB devices are not APM/ACPI friendly and may not operate properly after resuming from Standby or Hibernation. Some of these steps may not apply to your computer. Test the attached USB device after performing each step.

1. Verify that a USB port and an operating system with USB support are being used to attach a USB interface external device to a ThinkPad system.

Note: The following is an example image of a ThinkPad system USB port
USB port


2. Verify that the latest BIOS and embedded controller for the ThinkPad system has been installed.

View the latest BIOS files for all ThinkPad systems(-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/BMOE-3VAM8Y.html)

3. Verify that USB is enabled in BIOS.
* For ThinkPad A, G, R, T, X and Z series systems

1. Turn on the computer.
2. While the "Press F1 for BIOS Setup Utility" or "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message is displayed at the lower left area of the screen, press the F1 key, blue Access IBM, or ThinkVantage button.
3. Select Config and then click USB. The window should list USB BIOS support as [Enabled].
For ThinkPad 600, 600E, 770, 770E/ED, 770X, and 770Z systems

1. Press and hold the F1 key and then turn on the computer. Hold the F1 key until the Easy-Setup menu appears. If a password prompt appears, type the correct password.
2. Select Config.
3. Select Initialize and then click OK.
4. Click Exit, click Restart, and then click OK to restart the system

4. Verify that the USB device and any required drivers were installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
This may require removing the USB device and the drivers, and then reinstalling the USB device and the latest drivers.

5. Verify the USB device works on another machine, if available.

6. Verify another USB device, if available, works on this machine.

7. Verify that the USB device is USB 1.1 or 2.0 compliant.
Plugging specific USB 1.1 compliant devices into a USB 2.0 compliant port will cause an error message dialog box to appear. That dialog box details that a non-high speed device has been attached to a high speed port. The device should function normally, but at a slower speed than if a 2.0 device is attached to 2.0 port. Most USB 1.1 devices will function normally in USB 2.0 ports.

8. Verify that external power is attached if required.
Some USB 2.0 devices will require additional power from external sources or an additional USB port to function correctly in USB 1.1 compliant computers.

9. Verify that the latest Microsoft Windows Service Pack has been installed for the operating system installed on the computer.
There are updates and fixes to USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 available in Service Packs.

10. If an operating system was installed from a retail CD, then refer to installing USB 2.0 support on ThinkPad systems.

11. Test the USB port for errors.
Run the PC Doctor diagnostics for all current ThinkPad systems. PC Doctor for DOS is available by pressing the F11 key or the blue Access button during startup to access the predesktop menu area. If these methods are not available for your system, then PC Doctor for DOS may be downloaded. This DOS version requires two or more floppy diskettes depending on the ThinkPad system.

12. If these steps have not solved your problem:
Refer to "Need more help?"

You could also try downloading an updated/fresh copy of the drivers for my specific model notebook from Asus's web site and just reinstall over the old ones.

And if you don't understand much about it, i would advice you take it back from where you bought it from and get a replacement if it's on guarantee...

Thanks for using fixya....

Asus k50ij usb boot


Get you favorite bootable ISO image and using "ImageWriter.exe" application (under Windows 7/8) you could "transfer" the ISO to your USB device. In that way, your USB device becomes a bootable device. To boot from a USB device, your laptop should be "equiped" with a proper BIOS. Go to BIOS and change the boot order by having your USB stick already inserted in one of USB port (otherwise, you couldn't select to boot from USB!)

Instead of "ImageWriter.exe" application, you could use also "Win32DiskImager". For any of them, google it!

My Asus x7sa-ds51 laptop will not regonize a card reader I inserted into the usb port


Make sure all the USB ports are enabled. Make sure all the USB ports are free of debris (use duster). If the USB ports work with other devices, then I'm thinking that it a software problem; Is the card reader plug and play, or does it require drivers? Is the device compatible with your OS? And make sure everything is up to date.

Usb boot


Go into the BIOS settings then to the device Boot Order.
If USB device is listed in the boot order then you can move the USB as the first boot device.
If the USB device is not listed then your ASUS noteboot cannot boot up with an USB device.

I need to change boot settings to boot from usb stick and can't access bios setup as it needs a password. I bought a used Eeepc4g.


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

My ASUS computer will not read my SONY memory stick...my Asus Laptop will and my Dell Desktop will but not the Asus Desktop


You need to go to Device manager, remove ALL USB devices the whole thing.. remove and uninstall driver. then, reboot. Now at next desktop, try using the USB stick then, this often "Fixes" any problems. (Windows will auto-install the entire USB layer all again at boot up)

Asus Eee PC 2G Surf netbook fails to boot into OS


 Unfortunately Xandros is a paid (yes, you have read correctly , PAID) Linux distro. You will have to pay to get a Live-USB to reinstall.
Instead you should go here
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,46097.0.html
  and follow the instructions to create your own PCLinuxOS (the one i use) Live-USB. You will need another pc for that. After booting from it all you're gonna have to do is to click on the Install icon on the desktop.
