Hey to all at Dani Web !!!
I have a Emachine, T1740, with Windows Xp Home Edition on it.
I'm lost when it comes to dealing with hardware that won't install right.
This computer was givin to me. It was loaded with a few viruses and had issues I couldn't even begin to explain, like.....wouldn't copy or paste, freezes up, etc...
So, I put a fresh copy of Windows XP Home, on the computer and started over.
I had to go to Emachine website to get a few drivers and I'm still having problems with a couple small issues.
When I plug a PNY flash/thumb drive into any of the 6 usb ports, front or back, the computer just doesn't see them. I also tried to see if the ports would recognize a WebCam, and it didn't see it either. Nothing happends. I went into DEVICE MANAGER and everything looks ok in there, says all is working fine!
There are 2 usb ports on the front of the machine and there are 4 on the back......none work.
I have uninstalled the USB controllers and reinstalled them successfuly. I have also done the USB root hubs. I have went into BIOS and selected " Load Failsafe defaults".
I also get no sound and in Control Panel, it says that there are " No audio Devices".
Other than that, the computer is fine and I have put AVG, ZoneAlarm , SP2, SP3 on it. It hooks to the internet just fine.
Any and all help is very much appreciated !!!
