If you find someone that can figure out WMP then you found a Windows Programmer stuck in a cubicle next to the shitter.

Say I have an external hard drive that, when I connect to a laptop, gives me a "this is USB device has malfunctioned" error. Trying to uninstall and reinstall drivers does nothing. I downloaded the Maxtor Manager software (it's a Maxtor drive, obviously) and even that won't recognize the drive. I was hoping there was some kind of reset or rebuild I could do. Is the drive toast at this point? I assume so.

also, and it's dumb, but have you tried a different usb cable? We had audio issues with the cast for like a year and it came down to a fucking usb cable that was dying...

I was livid since we spent so much time/money on new shit and the fix was using a goddamn new usb cable for 3 bucks.

I did try the device manager steps but didnt try a new cable. I think it has a goofy connection on the hard drive side so I might be out of luck. It's a work drive and trying to get authorization to buy shit is a fool's errand. Thanks for the tips, Rob!

Dumb question number two: did you reboot the computer? Or shut down all the way and start up again?

Yep, did that. I think the drive might have been physically damaged because it was underneath my desk and I accidentally knocked it over a while back. This week I finally got around to plugging it in to see if it would work.

Desktop browser won't connect to a lot of websites, and runs slow as hell. Speed test is where it should be. Connection good. Rebooted router and modem. Thought it was Firefox so i uninstalled. Can't reinstall. I get a server timed out on Mozilla's site. Can't upgrade IE, or install chrome. 10 years old, running vista. I know. Just trying to make sure it's not something else.

Are you getting an error when upgrading IE or installing Chrome? Or can you just not download the clients?

If I type chrome into Google, then click on the link, it won't even go to the site. Super old IE. Like 6 or 7. I ordered a new box today
