Hi,

It was too good to be true.

I thought my problems were over after installing and upgrading my RAM. However after installing it (my computer runs much faster but no longer will boot if I have my flash card plugged into my USD plug. If I unplug it will boot. I than plug in my flash card and go to device manager. I click USB Mass Storage ht Device and get the message “Please wait while the wizard searches…” I takes a while but it finds Removable Disk (F) and it shows up on my control panel. I click it and the hour glass shows up and after it’s gone I never see the contents of the flash drive. I than right click USB Root Hub let click Properties and get the message, “This device is working properly,” but it is not.

Can anyone tell me how to get my USP ports to work again?

Click http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?show...=128211&hl= to see upgrade specifics.

Question 2. When I shut down my computer it goes into a hibernate state. How do I prevent this and get it to do a full shut down?

Thanks,

adkron

Hi USAMA,

Thanks for your help. I have a bunch to do to check "these things" out. I have been able to fix part of the problem. I have an explanation below.

As a side bar I saw that your username is an abbreviation for U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy. From this I assume you are an Army Vet. I am also but I only served three years on active duty. I was a grunt (Senior Rifleman) a long time ago and appreciate all those that serve our country. It’s our Troops that keep us free.

I stopped my computer from hibernating and my USB ports started working again. I suspected something was wrong with the ports when my computer would not boot with anything plugged into any one of my four ports but would boot if I left them empty. I still have problems when my my Canon PIXMA MP830 Printer is plugged in. My computer still will not boot with it plugged into a USB port. I turn the printer off and the computer will boot. I than turn the printer on and it will print. It may be something the printer is doing. I am going to ask Canon support for help here.

I’ll let you know how I make out after running your recommendations.

Thanks you all for your help,

adkron

Wow! I'm getting confused by the different threads! (I've got eye problems). I posted some suggestions on the other thread.

Just FYI - When I logon to BC in the AM, I start by looking at those posts marked as "unread" by me - so whichever is oldest is the first one that I look into. Then I work my way up the list until it's clear of unread posts.

Hi,

I have received help from hp Support. By phone a couple of months ago hp Support told me to contact Canon about my problem. That it was my new printer’s fault. Today by e-mail a hp Support person said it was a BIOS problem and I had to reset the BIOS. They told me how to do so and it fixed the problem. My computer now boots with my printer plugged in.

Thank you all for taking the time to help me,

Ron
