Peripherals

A peripheral device is defined as a computer device, such as a keyboard or printer, that is not part of the essential computer (i.e., the memory and microprocessor). These auxiliary devices are intended to be connected to the computer and used in conjunction with it. Examples of external peripherals include mouse, keyboard, printer, monitor, external Zip drive or scanner, while internal peripherals include CD-ROM drive, CD-R drive or internal modem. Today's new devices, such as tablets, smartphones and wearable computing devices are considered peripherals as they can be connected and used on a computer system. The difference, however, is that these devices can run independently of the computer system.

Hello,

We are running into issues with having web cameras hooked up to Wyse Terminals.

Has anyone ever successfully got a web camera setup with a Wyse terminal? When the webcam is plugged into the Wyse terminal states usb device not supported behind a high speed hub. I have tried all of the USB ports on the device but nothing seems to work.

We were able to get the device to show up once but video was choppy.

Any Input/Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Experts,

I've just purchased a Western Digital Elements 2TB portable USB 3.0 hard drive.  It's advertised as being compatible with WinXP and USB 2.0.

When I plug it into my old HP DC7700 SFF desktop PC running WinXP Pro SP3 (front ports, or rear, all of which are USB 2.0), it shows the expected New Hardware messages next to the systray, and finally says it's installed and ready to use, and I can see it in Device Manager, but not in Explorer, so I don't think I can use it on this PC.
Tried using Device Manager to update the driver from WinXP Pro CD and then from the web, but it says something like there was no better driver found, in both cases.

All the same things happen when I connect it to a Dell Latitude D420 laptop, also running WinXP Pro SP3.

But when I try it on an HP laptop which is running Win10 (also USB 2.0 I think), I see no problems there.

Any suggestions of what could be causing this, and how I should resolve it?

Let me know if you want any screen shots or other info.

Thanks.

Are there any utilities that will tell exactly which type of hardware peripheral cards are being used inside of a Windows 10 computer?

A remote user has several peripheral cards installed within her computer and I would like to get a list of what the model numbers of these peripheral cards are.

I have already tried using utilities such as Belarc but haven't been able to generate such a list.

Are there any programs or utilities that can do this?

I just installed a IOGEAR 2-Port SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 (gen2) Type-A PCI-Express Card. Only to realize I need more 3.0 ports. I can certainly pull this and replace it with a 4-port card of another brand, but 2-port card is inexpensive and I have 2 extra slots, so I was thinking of getting an installing a second 2-port card, same one. Any technical reason not to do this? Two two-port cards is the same price as a four-port.

Do You Know How Hackers Steal Your Credentials? Join us and Skyport Systems to learn how hackers steal your credentials and why Active Directory must be secure to stop them. Thursday, July 13, 2017 10:00 A.M. PDT

My team has had reoccurring issue with usb peripherals, ( keyboard, mouse, web cams) stop working.  Event logs ID 219 indicates several "Kernel-PnP" events  in which  drivers fail to load.  

Root hubs in device manager states  driver failed to load for hardware because previous instance of the driver is still in memory (code  38)    

the issue  does not reoccur once Citrix receiver is uninstalled.
so has anyone seen this issue and knows definitively why would Citrix receiver cause a fault.

Environment  - Win7 Ent -x64

I've been using this printer for a long time and rarely have problems with it.
The worst I have to do is tell it what paper is in the Tray 1 feeder.

I am trying to print envelopes from Word 2013.
Well, they print just fine!

But, I have a mail merged word document of nearly 200 envelopes.
I have saved the document so it should now be just a plain Word document with #10 envelope-sized pages.
I have managed to print a few one-off but generally the printer just sits there and says "Ready" and the computer says there are no documents waiting to print.
All I need to do is launch the multi-page print job!!

I do know that there is going to be a message about margins when an envelope print job does work.  But that message isn't popping up on the ones that fail.  A clue?

How?

Modem says it has been installed,
shows in device manager, but indicates no driver installed.
In Control Panel under Phones and Modems it shows...but says not functional.
Did updates, even installed a USB RS232 and set it for com 4, still, that item shows ok in
device manager, but will not install a functional modem.
Tried two different usb modems US Robotics
Tried another USR v92 serial model.
Any ideas out there?

Hi,
We are having some strange issues using USB devices on HP Windows 10 PCs: the main device in question is a Velleman Relay Control board but I don't think the problem is restricted to that as similar issues happen with a signature pad from another supplier.. the facts of my situation are as follows:
1. On connection, device allocates itself a COM port and works fine
2. After a restart, trying to connect to the device using a 'test program' from the supplier, I get a message 'Failed to connect:Access is denied'.
3. Same message appears even after full shutdown / restart
4. Works fine as soon as the usb cable is unplugged / re-plugged in.
5. I have this issue on 3 identical HP pcs, having said that, I have another 3 of the same pcs working perfectly in situ for some time. I've even taken clone images of the working pcs but still seem to get issues.
6. Another device will not work after a reboot which I'm hoping is related to this issue as well.
7. Sometimes (!), after a reboot I don't get an error message and although communication appears to work without error, the device does not seem to get any data or therefore respond either.
This is driving me crazy as I've tried various combinations of connections via pc port and usb hubs (usb 2 / usb 3 / different cables) etc. I have many of the products in stock as well so I've tried several new ones to eliminate faulty products. Been struggling with this for weeks if not months now, to the point where I'm purchasing new …

Hello,

I broke my receiver for my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 5000 (& Mouse Combo).  I ordered a receiver on eBay, but it does not work.  Through extensive research it appears to be that even though it's the same model, it may be running on a different frequency.  Does anyone know of a program to REPROGRAM the receiver so I can connect my trusty Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse?

I have Scansnap's desktop scanner http://www.fujitsu.com/us/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/ix500/ 

I have the requirement to scan to pdf and email at the same time.  The ScanSnap can do this, however, it requires using a desktop email client.  My requirement is to have the ability to scan,pdf and email without using the user's email client as everybody is on web mail.

One option is to save the pdf's to a folder and then listen for new files to hit a folder and email via smtp.  For this request, I am looking for suggestions on a desktop scanner that can do this. I have the ability for this function on a larger multi function device, but need desktop.
