EEE1394 Bus not in my menu - I got as far as that following your instructions.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, if you click on start, computer, do you see the drive listed there?
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Am an OAP so can't afford monthly or extra fee to rectify by remote.

I can see DIsc Drive, DVD drive or floppy disc drive

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
That is no problem, it is optional.
Disc Drive is likely to be the drive your trying to connect Tess,
Click on it and check please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Have clicked on disc drive but it asks me to install disc that I no longer have.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, this is not the drive then.
Is the Lasie connected to the computer via the USB port?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, plug it into a different usb port on the computer.
Is it then detected?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Can't find another usb port. The computer searches for both oard & rugged usb each time I switch on but can't detect either.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Whats the make and model of the computer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

HP w 1907v

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks
Can you tell me which version of windows you are using?
And when did it last work?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I think it's windows 7 but not entirely sure. Everyhing else seems to work perfectly.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
when did it last work?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The oard hasn't worked for a long time. How much will it cost me for you to fix my computer by remote?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
It is an additional $39 but I think it is likely to be faulty as its a straight forward process.
If you connect it to another computer, is it then detected?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I haven't got another computer. I think that I'll have to let you look by remote in case it's me doing something wrong as I'm not very computer literate.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, please accept the offer and I can then do this

Restart the computer and try to do my instructions again please.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
that works, thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Niether problem has been resolved - I've switched the computer off & back on - it won;t accept rugged usb nor the digital oard. What happens now?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Sorry Tess? We installed it on your computer, you saw this and indicated it was all ok.
What now seems to be the issue?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

When I turn the computer on or put something in usb port both say that driver hardware is not found which is exactly why I contacted just answer in the first place. It asks for original discs which I haven't got.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Put what in the USB port? As the devices we installed, so what are you now putting in?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I am putting a device that is hardrive from a computer programme that contains photographs for a project I'm working on - that is what I put in before.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No before was the Microsoft Keyboard and the Latice, this is something else as that was all installed...
Run Team viewer again and give me the password ***** ID please

thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

you lost my keyboard function, only just managed to get it back.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
###-##-#### ***** word fm541g
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
I only installed the hard disk you wanted so this should not have impacted the keyboard. It may have needed a restart.
But everything is installed, also the extra items, why do you want me to connect?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I've had to reinstall keyboard.

Still can't find anything downloaded from usb port. After spending over £50it still seems hopeless & frustrating. I give up!

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
The keyboard is installed, we have done that initially.
We confirmed it was installed the second time.
Why do you say we have to install the keyboard?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

By removing the notice about finding hard drive it disabled my keyboard & I was unable to type a response. Now I have the notice back & go thro' the motions of searching for it, I can use the keyboard again.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
If it is working then it is installed.
You will have to ignore that message.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have only managed to use the keyboard for months by responding to this message.

Keyboard disappeared from the list under device manager until I got it back!

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes, we installed it today, you see this as you are now able to use it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No, I was not able to use it which is why I couildn't reply to you. When it wouldn't work I looked under device manager & keyboard had vanished from list - I'm not imagining it! By disabling the notice it disabled my keyboard.

I just can't continue with tjis as we've spent the whole afternoon on this and niether problem has resolved. Thank you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

None of the problems were solved - niether rugged usb or oard 3000 are not found on my computer.
