Is it normal for all USB ports to die at the same time? I have an Epox EP-9NPLA-SLI mobo that worked just fine last night. This morning it doesn't turn on my mouse, doesn't make that sound when you plug or unplug something from a USB port, doesn't recognize a different mouse, just doesn't work! The case hasn't been cracked open for moons and I didn't install any drivers or programs. Last night it worked, today it doesn't. Is this how USB ports go to heaven?

Hello TSG Folks!

I have an ISP supplied D-Link DI-624 router with four ethernet ports on the back. Two ports are being used by computers, one by a printer, and one is wired downstairs to a PS2. I am thinking about buying an Xbox 360 but I don't have enough ethernet ports. What can I do or what should I buy?

Also, I am looking for something to extend the range of my current router or a whole new router. What do you guys recommend? The router is (and will be) in the upper right corer of the house.

Thanks a ton!

I just bought a Belkin F5D-9630-4 ADSL Wireless Router, followed the installation guide but it doesn't work!
The front of the router shows a red light on the Internet LED. The user guide says this means the router could not obtain an IP address. I followed the Belkin advice given on the Troubleshooting section of their website but it hasn't helped.
Short of ringing up my ISP (which is Bulldog) is there anything else I can do to solve this?

Hey guys,

What is the best way to add more ethernet ports to my router? Is it to daisy chain a hub /switch to it? I'm all out and I often work on many computers at a time. Currently I have the cable modem, my computer, printer, one spare for computers I work on, and one to vonage modem. I would like more available for computers that I work on so I can hook up at least one more. Thanks!

A:Ports closed; router forwarded ports, firewalls disabled?

Temporarily add your PC IP into the DMZ and try again , see if the internal/external tests then notice the ports open , this will test if it's a router or PC issue....

Don't forget to take it out of the DMZ after testing...

My condo is wired for internet. I have a router connected to an 8 port switch. The router works fine through the switch and was using the other ports on the switch to connect the bedrooms with internet (switch ports connected to corresponding bedroom ports in closet hub).
Tonight I tried to stream my PS3 in my bedroom, however, the connection was not working. I tried switching ports on the switch, but none worked. The router was still working and wifi was same as usual. I even tried to use the port the router was using on the switch but connections still didn't work.

Here is the strange part that I don't understand. The router works on all the switch ports, but the bedroom lines do not.
When I connect the bedroom lines to the router ports they work perfect. I used the PS3 and laptop to confirm

What is going on? What changed all of a sudden?

I even tried using port triggering in conjunction with port forwarding, but to no avail. I will post some screens below so you can see if I am doing everything right. By the way, the application I am trying to port forward is Minecraft. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Goldilocks

I think I know what you mean, but a screenshot of your problem would be great. Do this by pressing the PrtSc button. then press start > run and type mspaint and click ok. In paint, click Edit > Paste. Then click File Save As. Give it a name and in the box below that select jpeg .jpg.

On to your issue. This is usually related to display. Try this as a solution.

Press start > Right click My Computer and select Properties. Here select the Advanced Tab > Then Performance.

This will take you to the Visual Effects tab. Remove these options from the list:

Animate Windows when minimizing and maximizing
Show Shadows under Menus
Show Shadows under Mouse Pointers
Use visual styles on windows or buttons.

Click ok and reboot.

This should speed up windows too, but also, hopefully, stop your problem. If not. Please take a screenshot and upload it as an attachment if you have to repost your problem.

Hope this helps.

If it was a front port you could have possibly fried the Southbridge/USB Controller. The wiring for the front port could be incorrectly connected to the motherboard. Try removing USB Host in Windows Device Manager and let Windows try to reinstall/reconfigure it. Otherwise it could be fried.

-Uninstalled USB drivers and reinstalled
-Updated chipset and bios

Still having the same issue. I don't want to do a clean boot because I have a lot of graphic design software I work with and don't want to be reinstall all my files and data. I just want my ports back. Could you guys help me?

A:Need Help with Dead USB Ports

You may want to give the following a try. I've never used the procedure myself.

(From a JohnWill post 4/7/09)

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fix.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result.

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

Dear Customer, Welcome and Thank you for posting your query on HP Support Forum It looks like you are facing issues with regards to the USB Ports on the Notebook Please perform the below shown steps to resolve the issue:1. Now from within Windows, go into device manager and find the USB hub(s) right click and go into properties/advanced. You will have the option to reset the hub. Do it for all hubs and restart the Unit. 2.  Go into the BIOS (F10) and restore to default settings. Reboot.  Note: If this still does not work, then your option is to have the motherboard repaired or replaced or just get a USB external hub so you can have more ports.  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on left to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee   Try this USB3 driver... Download, unzip and run the setup.exe file from the link below...https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24896/USB-3-0-Intel-USB-3-0-Driver-for-Intel-NUC USB 3.0 Driver for WindowsIntel USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver - 64 Bithttp://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_132256_1&sp4ts.oid=6431933 Intel USB 3.0 Driver for Intel® NUC - 32 Bithttps://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3467&DwnldID=23734&keyword=USB+3.0&la... NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Driverhttp://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-100224-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en...

Bit of a weird problem this. Ive spent hours trying to sort it so far. After a routine reboot yesterday, I found I couldn't access the internet. LAN was fine, internet gateway was fine. I had an IP assigned by the router. Everything checked out but nothing could open the necessary ports. If I open a command line and ping some web servers I get replies but if I open a browser or try to update some software or ping game servers I get the same problem - can't establish a connection. The issue is not a hardware one as i'm using the same set up at the moment albeit on a different hard drive I luckily had lying around with my OS cloned to it. I'm at a loose end here. Help!

P4 2.8

If you can't access the Internet with programs like IE, Outlook Express, or other web browsers, you may have corrupted Winsock entries.

I run Windows XP HE and get the blue screen of death and a message that my PHYSICAL memory is dumping to disk. I then see numbers ascending, I just switch off, this is the only way I can escape !

Every time I reboot it checks the disks for errors but gets ALMOST all the way through then HANGS. To overcome this I simply reboot again and it is ok.

I am worried that this DUMPING PHYSICAL MEMORY TO DISK will keep happening. Maybe even when I am away from my pc with disastrous results. It just suddenly happens with no warning. I no longer feel I can just leave my pc on unless I am watching it all the time. Very frustrating with broadband

In addition when I boot up I get an error message that the CPU is unworkable, hitting F1 gets me in ok.
 

A:Is it a hardware fault or O/S ?

Sounds like you have some serious hardware issues.

The "dumping physical memory to disk" is fine, all its doing is recording to disk a copy of the contents of the memory, for use by a Tech in diagnosing the problem (maybe...)

Its not harmful, its just writing a file.

Sounds like you need some physical hands on Tech Service on the PC though.

A:USB Ports on laptop seem 90% dead

Yeah, there is a very good chance you fried the electronics up to or including the Southbridge Controller. It depends on what you did and the voltages involved.

I'm not clear on this:
"When I connected an alternative power lead "
What is that?

The best way to tell if you are dealing with a hardware problem (fried component) or a software problem (altered or corrupted drivers or OS settings) is to download, burn, and run a "Live CD" like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux. If the USB ports do not work while running Ubuntu then you will know it is a hardware problem.

Have you tried using those ports in "Safe Mode"? If so...read on.

---
Try removing the drivers in device manager. Right click each line, then choose "Remove/uninstall"
Then reboot your computer and when the drivers reinstall, try using the USB ports in question.
----

If the USB ports still don't work, then it's possible that they are defective. (but then again Windows can cause many random issues from time to time so we'll first have to rule out software as the problem.)

A:Need help locating hardware fault

1. Where could the real fault be, and the point of origin?: Well you replaced everything apart from the motherboard and RAM so they would be your best bets. Download memtest and test your RAM for a while with it. Not the Windows version but the DOS version. I think it is on Hirens boot CD. Also on the Ultimate boot CD wich you should be able to find through google

2. What could I have done to the machine, could the PSU have spiked other hardware?

Did you insult your computer or look at it **** eyed? It is not likely that the PSU spiked the hardware but it is more possible that the amount of amps that came through the PSU was to much for the rest of the components to handle

3. Why would the HDD work fine until put under heavy access?

Well the harddrive is a mechanical object. The more you push it the harder it works. The harder it works the more likely it is apparent to develop problems but this would only happen with a damaged or extremely old harddrive

4. Are there likely to be any further faults?

Well it is still not working correctly so you still have problems. The fact that that the motherboard beeps is an indication that something is upsetting your BIOS. It is quite possible that the motherboard is damaged. Or at least that your computer is overheating

5. Has anyone had this happen before?

I have had all of these problems but not all at once. Now this is a novel

Hello Right now I BSOD: Fault ?? Hardware am trying my best to keep my laptop running while I am posting this thread I have been victimized by relentless blue screens which I suspect is a result of some hardware problem I initially thought this was a Windows and or Virus problem BSOD: Hardware Fault ?? I posted a thread as well http forums techguy org virus-oth -extreme-system-slowdown-blue-screens htm l but I recently formatted and reinstalled Windows but the blue screens keep coming back I am using IBM Thinkpad R a model so pretty old by now It runs Intel Centrino GHz proc GB IDE hard disk it initially came with MB RAM but I upgraded it to GB Windows XP SP Here are the problems I am facing since last one month Extreme system slowdown while running two or MS Office files or Outlook or even two tabs on Google Chrome The mouse pointer tends to get stuck while moving on the screen as if my system is busy even when Task manager shows system usage between to times I face a slowdown I end up with a blue screen it mostly says something like A critical process thread has been stopped to stop further damage and a few error codes are X F X X A F DA X A C C X A CB C though the error codes change every time Also at times I get a blue screen while boot up that says Unmountable Disk and while running Windows I see Unknown Hard Error I showed my laptop to someone and he predicted that the MB RAM was causing the trouble and took it out but it still did not solve the problem The problem occurs instantly if I move my laptop from my desk to another location i e the moment I move it I get a blue screen I did run a memtest and it returned no errors Can anyone please help me figure out what s the problem I am living with it for more than a month now and its frustrating Thanks nbsp

If moving it causes that kind of issue - I'd be looking at loose connections. DVD drive connection, AC adapter connections, Hard Drive connections.

I sometimes spend a long time diagnosing certain faults on a PC/Laptop. Is it RAM, HDD, Mobo etc etc, until I pin down the exact faulty piece of a computer. I have been looking into diagnostic kits to try and save me some time, They seem to vary in price from £30-£1500. They all claim to be able to diagnose the exact hardware fault of a PC or laptop. My questions are, does anyone have any experience of these kits, if so do they actually work? And can anyone recommend a particular brand/model?

Hi I m having some issues with my PC and i am not sure what is wrong i have exhausted what knowledge i have to be honest A couple of weeks ago i was using my HDD related, Fault. Hardware maybe not? Unknown Maybe PC same as always and i got a crash i dont remember the exact nature Unknown Hardware Fault. Maybe HDD related, maybe not? now but Unknown Hardware Fault. Maybe HDD related, maybe not? i restarted the PC and when i did i was greeted with a black screen with a flashing cursor when i tried to boot I fiddled around with my hard drive configuration at this point disabling one then the other to see if Unknown Hardware Fault. Maybe HDD related, maybe not? i could get the GRUB loader to appear This didnt work but when i put both drives back in as they were before i could access GRUB again but it would throw up error Makes sense i messed around with the drive positioning so grub would be a bit confused It s from this point that things went really wrong I used a LIVE ubuntu CD to try and repair grub but found that my GB HDD was actually inaccessible due to a bad superblock Further inspection showed that both my HDD s were showing some level of corruption I ran SEATOOLS on both my drives in the hopes that at least an error code would get me an RMA The GB drive passed fine first time The GB drive did not it failed the long test due to some corrupt LBA s that it corrected It has passed the long test twice now without error I decided at this point just to cut my losses reformat the drives and start over This went relatively painlessly and once i was setup in ubuntu i got a reminder that my HDDs were failing This feature is notoriously over sensitive though so i investigated further The GB drive had reallocated sectors that were not present before and the GB drive has pending sector rewrites as well as uncorrectable errors also not present before I have been monitoring the drives since and there has been no increase in damage over the last couple of weeks I assume they both took some damage in the crash but have no idea how My issues now have become more pronounced In windows my mouse will slow down under periods of heavy usage and freeze or lag a lot Sometimes i boot up and my USB devices kb mouse wif dish need to be reconnected before windows will detect them When the mouse is lagging the computer also slows to an absolute crawl and becomes unusable whilst this is occuring Performance in d games has plummeted too my fps jumps widly from the maximum amount i know i should be getting all the way down to around a quarter of its full speed So what has happened My operating systems are both on the GB drive the one i figured had taken the least amount of damage I cant RMA these drives without a seatools code so am stuck with them for a while besides if the manufacturers tool passes them fine then they cant be that damaged right Are all the problems indicitive of hard drive errors I m thinking whatever caused my drives to frazzle in the first place might be responsible here All help appreciated sorry for long post nbsp

A:Unknown Hardware Fault. Maybe HDD related, maybe not?

Update:

Tried extracting an archive on the 250GB drive, went at 16MB/s, lagged my computer out like crazy and i had to forcibly close the extraction. Copied the files to my 320GB (copied at full speed btw) and extracted there at 40MB/s with no impact on my PC performance whatsoever.

Seems fairly obvious then that my 250GB is simply screwed? Is there anything i can do here? SMART only shows 34 reallocated sectors out of 36 that were available for remapping leaving 2 spare sectors still, it should not be behaving like this, should it?

A:Serious problem - is it a hardware fault or software ?

Sounds like the computer is not booting of the CD. You need to go into the BIOS setup when the computer first turns on, usually press F2 or DEL, and find the Boot Order. Make sure the Boot Order has the CD-ROM in the sequence before the hard drive. Then save and exit. Now when the computer starts with the XP CD in the drive it should come up and ask you to press any key to boot off the CD which is what you want to do. Then follow the onscreen instructions. You will probably want to do a new/clean install of XP so you will want to format the drive when asked.

Here's some installation guides:

A:Dead USB ports after failed System Restore

Hi IsThisTheHIV and welcome to TSF.

There are a few things that can cause a System Restore to fail, so will try to fix that now. As for the USB port failing to work, that could be that the drivers for them were knocked out during the process and needed re-installing.

First, make sure that Volume Shadow Copy has started in Services and is set to automatic.

Windows Key+R and type services.msc and hit OK. Then scroll down to Volume Shadow Copy (double click on it to open the properties dialogue box) and make sure the service has 'started' and is set to 'Automatic'.

Next we need to create a restore point. This is because doing a System Restore in Safe Mode doesn't create an undo, hence we will create one now.

Start>and type System Restore into the search box, and you will see it appear in the list above. Click on it and follow the wizard. Call the restore point 'Troubleshooting SR' or something you will remember.

Now, boot into Safe Mode (Tap F8 whilst booting, and choose Safe Mode) and try to do a System Restore.

Hi about two weeks ago both of the usb ports on the front of my Dell Dimension 4700 went dead after trying to use a multi-port hub with them. Now nothing will read on either of them. I have checked in my device manager but nothing shows with an error and I do not know how to differenciate how they are listed compared to the ones on the back. Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

A:Dead usb ports on from of my Dell Dimension 4700

Failure after connecting a device, is typically not a driver issue.

You can try reinstalling the motherboard/system or USB drivers (they aren't often seperate). The drivers are available on the Dell website.

Hi

Was getting the following error: "Hardware ID Missing, Windows cannot identify the device plugged into the ATA Controller 0"

To date I have carried out the following actions with no success:

1. Removed DVD and re-connected
2. Deleted ATA Controller 0 in Manage Device Manager and rebooted
3. Installed the latest driver and rebooted
4. Removed all motherboard connections and re-connected
5. Purchased replacement DVD drive and replaced

The DVD opens/closes correctly. When I boot into BIOS the DVD is present but listed as this in the Boot Menu:

God only knows what that means, but could be a good clue!!!

Hello,
I lost access to my USB powered devices primarily my Keyboard and Mouse which has rendered my Dell PC unusable.
I get the Keyboard Failure message displayed on top of the screen right after the Dell logo gets displayed. I never get the option to hit the F2 Setup key because the sustem cannot detect a keyboard and mouse.
I will need to find out if there are any chances of recovery outside of replacing the motherboard on the system.
Thanks,
LaFay

Have you tried using a different KB and mouse, if does not fix the issue, then it would seem that the motherboard has issues and requires replacing.

You can order a new BIOS chip from Asus for $20. If your board is still under warranty you can get the chip for free.

A:Computer Freezing for a short time (Hardware Fault)

Identical problem here.. hard drive light goes solid and pc just stops for 1 min, still able to move the mouse cursor but cannot slect anything or alt-tab etc. Any alt tab or double clicking is cached up and then all fired off at once when the minute freeze is up.

I'm pretty certain now it's down to my Asus P5K-E motherboard (which is what I assume the original poster has)

I'm looking towards M/Board now as I have swapped drives and changed CPU from Q6600 to Q8200 also switched from Vista 32bit to Win7 64bit and still get the issue.

I alleviated it for a while by switching my SATA 300 drive down to 150 mode by setting the jumpers.

Have flashed the P5K to the latest bios with no joy.

Full specs are..
Q8200 Quad
Asus P5K-E Wifi Premium
500GB Samsung SATA300
4GB Ram
lightscribe 20x DVDRW
Sony Bluray Drive (installed after problem had already appeared)
2 x ATI HD3870's in crossfire config.
Windows 7 64bit / WinXP dual boot.

i'm having trouble with a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. when i try to start it, i get a blue screen with the error "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA", etc.

i can't get it to boot fully to a desktop screen in normal mode or in safe mode. so i dont have a HJT log or any other log. is it possible this is a malware/trojan issue or is it a RAM problem?

i am able to get to the windows log-in box but then it briefly (1 or 2 seconds) shows the desktop and i get the error message above.

thanks.

A:atikmdag fault - is this software or hardware? + am I covered under warranty?

The ATI driver that is being blamed in the error pop up is for your graphics card but it could mean that your card is failing.

When you say "I rebuild my laptop every 30 days" what exactly do you do and what software are you using.

Windows and all Anti Virus software can be set to automatically update so you should not need to check either of them.

Follow this to post a few of the latest minidumps from the BSOD's so they can be analysed.

First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in windows explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).
Below the reply box click on Go Advanced. Then scroll down until you see a button, Manage Attachments. Click on that and a popup-window opens.
Click on the Browse button, find the zip folder you made earlier and doubleclick on it.
Now click on the Upload button in the popup. When done, click on the Close this window button.

Hi, and thank you for taking your time to help me

So each night I take my computer along with monitors etc. out of the power plug in the wall.
When I but the power plug back in to start the computer up, my keyboard instantly powers on, the same goes with my two monitors.
When I then turn on the computer nothing really happens. All of the fans and lights turn on (The MoBo fan spins insanely), but nothing comes on the monitor screen. The monitors keeps searching for a unit but won't find the computer.

Sometimes after waiting a few minutes the screen suddenly shows the startup of windows and I can use it normally.

I think it's an hardware related problem but I'm not entirely sure.
I use windows 10.

Hope you can help me

A:random BSODs, suspected hardware fault; need help identifying the part

although i am quite sure this is a hardware issue, not a software/driver one, ive been running the driver verifier for some time now, and got some BSODs, so i am uploading them here now as well.

though as already said, i doubt this will help further, since the BSODs i get do not always recognize a driver, sometimes its just memory fault with no service identified, or in rare cases the system just turns off without a blue screen.

note: ive had the driver verifier select all installed drivers automatically, and not just non-microsoft ones, since quite often system kernel files such as win2k.sys are the ones mentioned in the BSOD.

Would this be a driver issue, or something else?

Then see if the other device gets seen after reboot.

Hi all,
I'm looking for suggetions...

My hardware is:
ASUS p4c800-e deluxe mobo
Antec Smartpower 2.0 500W
Kingston Economy Ram DDR400
P4E HT 3.0GHz w/ Vortex TX CPU Cooler
CM Stacker Case
ATI Radeon x800xl (AGP 8x Pro)

I have no overclocking and all frequency/power settings to either default or required for hardware.

My problem is infuriating... My computer after power on will graphically lockup at the bios flash screen, however i can hear windows booting up. Through some fancy magic i was able to remote desktop into the machine so I know it's functioning. I put in a PCI card and was able to see the computer boot into windows and everything seems A-OK...

I want to say my graphics card is dead, but if that's the case would I even see the bios splash screen?

Any suggetions would be awesome, thx in advance.

Have you tried removing your graphics card driver in safe mode then reinstalling it?

Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

nv4.disp.dll is a Nvidia display driver. Try the following:

1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

I am running windows xp with service pack 2 and I just ran into a problem with
the usb port on my computer (all 6 of them) will NOT acknowledge any hardware
that is plugged into them

Anyone know why this happened and how to fix it.

Thank you
Ed Fulke
 

A:usb ports(windows) will not acknowledge hardware?

Do you have a Universal Serial Bus Controllers section in Device Manager? To get to Device Manager go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager. USB should be at the bottom of the list. If its not then the USB ports may be disabled in the BIOS setup of teh motherboard.

When being in BIOS I did a hardware reset (the small hole besides the on-off switch) and the computer stopped running.Now I no longer can start the 600 E.With the AC power adapter connected, the rectangular led besides the IBM logo is green. When operating the power switch it starts to flicker yellow a few times and then returns to continuous green. Nothing more happens, no noise from hard disk or ventilator. Also switching-on with F1 pressed gives no result.Thinkpad 600 E is like dead.What are the causes and what can I do ?Thanks for any help.Hans
