my computer does not recognise my internet
moderm and my external hard drive what do i do?
My problem is that my laptop does not recognize one of my USBs only. It detects all the others fine. There is nothing special about this one except that it has a built-in camera (to help me catch critters eating my plants at night!) The first time I plugged it in, the laptop did recognize it. But after that one time, it never did again.
Why when i plug in my Polariod camera that my Pc doesn't recongize it?
I tried connecting my laptop to the internet using my nokia c3 and a usb since my windows xp doesn't have a bluetooth but, all efforts proved futile. What could be wrong? I've followed the normal setting procedures on my phone but, still, no good result.
Whilst working for a major IT firm I came across this fix for suspect USB Ports and it works every time.
The problem with USB Ports is that they are prone to Static Charge and because of this they sometimes refuse to work, the workaround for this is very simple:
Do a Static Discharge
Disconnect the computer from the power ( pull out the plug from the rear of the computer supply, then hold the power button on your computer in for a minimum of 30 seconds ( it must be 30 seconds or over) then re-connect your power supply and re-boot.
Yes its that simple
Have fun and good computing to you all
May 30, 2012. Problem, XP system will not always display insertion of a thumb drive although I do get audio beep indication of its insertion but when I display files with explorer the drive will not be shown. I have used diskmgnt.msc and found the drive has an assigned letter. I have tried changing the assigned but although change is successful in diskmgnt no drive is displayed by file explorer. I have found if reboot system the drive will appear but if I remove and re-insert it will not reappear in explorer.

Alkl week-end I have had problems with my wireless internet adapter not being recognized by my windows oeprating ssyte,
it is an AT &T wireless adapter. It used to receive a wireless signal and find a network until this past saturday morning.
the AT & T technician stated to me that my USB ports on the back of my computer were "corrupted" for some reason.
we put the wireless adapter into the front USB port and it worked late satruday afternoon. when I tried to go online sunday, my wireless showed "connected" but would not pull up yahoo or any website.
then the network connection went off completely.. AT & T could not solve problem. my Kindle works via my wireless modem so I am getting the wireless signal.
is it my wireless internet adapter? it seems very odd that all 4 of my USB ports do not recognize the wireless internet adapter any longer.
To post a comment on "Why won't my system recognize my USB device?", please return
