Ibm Thinkpad T42 Usb Ports Not Working

Thanks a lot. The easiest way I know to install this driver is to update to Windows XP SP2 or Windows 2000 SP 6. Look at the chart at the bottom of the page. What i did was buying USB 2.0 replicator (with 4 USB ports). Check This Out

So I could go into Disk Manager and assign a drive letter by hand, and then SOME devices would show up in Windows Explorer, but not all. (Thumb drives worked, but I called the 24/7 tech support line.

All of a sudden now I keep getting the "This device can perform faster" message everytime I plug any USB device into either of these ports. Device Manager showed the individual devices installed, but not the USB Root Hub. Right click on the file and choose "Install" then follow the prompts.

I don't think this statement is necessarily correct, at least for machines recently acquired from the factory. But rebooting with a Linux CD (from Macrium Reflect Free backup software) worked fine, and revealed my external HDD on a USB port, so the hardware was fine.I saw nothing helpful Something is wrong in powering the system which influences the unstability of USB exits to function normally. I forgot that there are newer and better T4x series machines out there that come with XP SP2 installed. _________________Steve Top Profile Reply with quote fschwep Post subject: PostPosted:

After wake up from hibernation or Standby usb port is dead sometimes and i have to deaktivate/activate usb controller in HardwareManager. I would like to argue that that USB 2.0 support comes from some other source e.g IBM device drivers chipset drivers or from Win XP SP2 but not from a plain Top Profile Reply with quote smugiri Post subject: update...PostPosted: Sat Nov 12, 2005 5:24 pm Offline Senior Member Joined: Tue Nov 23, 2004 4:29 pm Posts: 773 Location: Mississauga, According to my install, the files you need are usbehci.sys that goes to c:\windows\system32\drivers usbhub.sys that goes to c:\windows\system32\drivers usbport.sys that goes to c:\windows\system32\drivers hccoin.sys that goes to c:\windows\system32 usbdui.sys that

For example, my recently purchased T42p came with XP-SP2 already installed as part of the factory preload, (even though the TAbook description for my model did not specifiy XP-SP2 as it his comment is here Then reboot.

I mean, it isn't as if one actually needs a computer to charge or control them to make a cup of coffee. I doubt if the BIOS update is the problem, but here is the page with the BIOS updates on it. I assume that the recovery disks I created on this system would return the system to the same state that it was in when received from the factory, i.e., with SP2 this contact form Ed _________________X120e 0596-2RU ?Ghz 4GB 360GB Win7T43 2668-? ?Ghz 1GB 160GB WinXP-SP3 Top Profile Reply with quote normofthenorth Post subject: Re: USB USB Ports do not work in 2.0

Good luck. You might want to take a look at it. Interestingly, here's what worked: Earlier, I had a devil of a time restoring Windows XP Pro to my X60. (The vendor had installed a bootleg copy of Windows 7, and hadn't

In a basic T4x install from Recovery CDs, you get Win XP which only comes with USB 1.1 drivers. Then again, thinking about"designer" coffee, maybe it is worth a shot; perhaps a double too. It then seems to me that there is no way to get USB 2.0 on this machine with just Win XP SP1 since according to Microsoft, USB 2.0 in XP SP1 If it works (I hope it is the case), then it is Windoze problem, not BIOS.

Now everything seems to recognize my external USB storage devices automatically -- EXCEPT Windows Explorer, which still doesn't want to recognize my external HDD as "H:"! yes. My argument then would be that it is impossible to have USB 2.0 from a plain vanilla Win XP SP1 install on a Centrino T42. Do a search for USB2 problems here on the forum, I'm sure you'll find a couple threads. _________________Homebuilt PC: AMD Athlon XP (Barton) @ 1.47 GHz; nForce2 Ultra; 1GB RAM; 80GB

Hi i have this same problem with my t40 now i give notebook to service (i know, this cannot be softawe proble becouse usb 1.1 and 2.0 make 2 diffrent chips My thinking is that assuming that the hardware/motherboard are OK ( and you mentioned that you verified this through a 2nd WinXP SP2 install ) then it would seem that this After that, plug one by one of your gadgets (USB DVD-RW, USB HD, USB mouse etc.) and all of them will work like USB 2.0.
