Hi, I am a first time user of this site, I have a Acer Aspire 5001 Wl Mi Laptop running windows xp. The usb ports will only recognize one type of Flash stick(first that was used), they operate ok with the mouse plugged in, but not other sticks. I may have removed some programs in the past, and may have removed something that was important for these ports. Can someone please suggest, how I may start to find the root of this problem. As I am a relative beginner to computer fixing, your instructions would be much appreicated.

Many thanks


Liam

What happens when you plug in one of the "other" sticks? Any chimes or other indication?
Have you looked in My Computer to see if the drive is there?
Try attaching the stick, then booting.

The computer does not recognises any other type of stick, the wizard tries to load ,but then says that there is an error.
Where would I look to see if the driver is there? and if it is not there how would I get another one?
