USB external Port

By teraine.stewart ·
I have a Compaq EVO 600n. I want to use a External USB port to connect my Mouse and Keyboard too. The input device works well when whenever the system is up and running. every morning I turn the latop on I have to re-power the USB external port so that the my keyboard and mouse can work!

USB external Port

by TheChas In reply to USB external Port

When you say external USB port, is this a hub, or a device connected externally to the PC?

If it is just a hub, make sure that in the BIOS settings USB legacy device support is enabled.
It is also possible that the hub is freezing up when the sytem boots. If you are using an external supply for the hub, make sure that it is set to use the external supply, and not buss power.

If it is an external device, I suspect that the drivers for the device are installed after the BIOS has scanned for, and not found the kybd and mouse. If that is the case, then I don't have any ideas for a work around.
