Problems with USB on a Thinkpad 770 with Win2000
Posted on 2005-04-01
Hi. I have an old IBM Thinkpad 770 (9549-1AU) that I installed Win 2000 SP5 on. It has a USB port in the back and if I check the device manager, the USB hub shows up as functioning and with proper drivers installed, however I cannot get any USB device to work. I have a Canon printer that it will not recognize as well as a SANDISK CRUZER 512mb flash drive that it won't pick up. Both devices work on other PC's (with both USB 1.1 and 2.0), but I don't get a single thing on the laptop. I have gone through the IBM PC Doctor (DOS) and it has run tests on the USB port and it says that it works, and it is initialized in the BIOS (as best as I can tell). Does anyone have any ideas why it would not be working? I was given this laptop a couple months ago (and the guy told me that the USB worked fine on it at that point with WIN98). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
