Several issues with my HP Netbook

April 2, 2013 at 13:09:49
Specs: Windows 7
I have an HP mini-110 with an Intel Atom CPU N270 processor @1.6GHz

I have gotten the "Your USB composite device can perform faster if it is plugged into a high speed port" error that others have gotten, but I am unsure if that is related to my other problems.

The first issue is that my (built-in) webcam is no longer being recognized by the computer. I have tried uninstalling/re-installing the software, but it still says that I do not have a webcam attached.

Secondly, all of my USB ports have quit working entirely. Nothing I plug in is recognized, be it a flash drive, mouse or keyboard.

I understand there are probably multiple potential problems here, but does anyone have any "most likely" suggestion?

Thanks in advance!

How can you get the "your USB composite device can perform faster" message if your USB ports don't work? That message generally means you've plugged a USB2.0 device into a USB1.x port. I don't have any USB3.0 devices but I'm guessing that same message would be displayed if a USB3.0 device is plugged into a USB2.0 or 1.x port. Have you tried reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers?

The camera and the memory card reader are probably on one USB controller. That controller probably has 1 USB port, which may only run at USB 1.1 speed due to the other devices being connected to an internal hub.

Your other USB ports should run at USB 2.0 unless you are using an external hub.

Check in Device Manager to see if there are any yellow or red punctuation marks by the USB hardware listings.

You could try removing all the USB listings in Device Manager and rebooting.
