    You may be surpassing the power limit supplied by the USB Hub. Multiple Ports run off a single Hub.

    Do a shut down. Unplug your USB devices. Startup. Plug your USB devices in, one at a time and see what happens. :hello:
  2. Or when the computer is turned on, go in to device manager and uninstall all USB devices, once done reboot your machine.

    the device im using .camera / printer does not show up in device manger. i do even see such a name as hp315 camera or lexmark printer?
  4. the ports are active, cause my sound/speakers are activated by the usb ports supplying power to the speakers. so they are working, its just not reconizing the device im pluggin in, also i installed the software for the hp315 photosmart camera, and when you go to upload your pictures, it claims it cant connect with camera/computer???

    Did you look in hidden devices in Device Manager ?

    Click View, show hidden devices.
