USB hub not working

  grussell 19:15 02 Dec 07

I'm using a laptop with an external hardrive and a USB hub connected to the only 2 usb ports. However, the Trust USB hub has stopped working for some reason. The LED light is on but nothing works when i connect anything to it. Running Vista. Anyone able to help?

Is it a Powered hub (ie with its own power supply)?
If not, the laptop may not have enough power to make the usb hub work properly.

No it's not powered. The laptop is connected to the mains and it still doesn't work. I'm only looking to run a mouse and keyboard from it.

I am talking only about the USB hub - if that does not have its own power supply, then that is almost certainly the problem.

OK - I am sure that will work for you.
