External device connected to a USB connector does not work.
The operating system limits external devices connected by USB to two tiers that can include no more than two hubs on the first tier and no more than one keyboard and one pointing device on the first or second tier. During startup, only two tiers are supported by the USB port. These tiers can include no more than two hubs on the first tier and no more than one keyboard and one pointing device on the first or second tier. An unpowered hub is connected to another unpowered hub.
Reduce the number of connected external USB devices to no more than two hubs on the first tier, and no more than one keyboard and one pointing device on the first or second tier.

Plastic Parts

Using excessive force during disassembly and reassembly can damage plastic parts. Use care when handling the plastic parts. Apply pressure only at the points designated in the maintenance instructions.

Cables and Connectors

Cables must be handled with extreme care to avoid damage. Apply only the tension required to unseat or seat the cables during removal and insertion. Handle cables by the connector whenever possible. In all cases, avoid bending, twisting, or tearing cables. Ensure that cables are routed in such a way that they cannot be caught or snagged by parts being removed or replaced. Handle flex cables with extreme care; they tear easily.
CAUTION: When servicing the computer, ensure that cables are
placed in their proper location during the reassembly process. Improper cable placement can damage the computer.
4.3 Preventing Damage to Removable Drives
Removable drives are fragile components that must be handled with care. To prevent damage to the computer, damage to a removable drive, or loss of information, observe these precautions:
Before removing or inserting a hard drive, shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the computer on, then shut it down. Before removing a diskette drive or CD-ROM drive, ensure that a diskette or disc is not in the drive. Ensure that the CD-ROM tray is closed. Before handling a drive, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity. While handling a drive, avoid touching the connector. Handle drives on surfaces that have at least one inch of shock-proof foam. Avoid dropping drives from any height onto any surface.
COMPAQ CONFIDENTIAL - NEED TO KNOW REQUIRED Writer: David Calvert Saved by: The Integrity Group Saved date: 10/26/00 11:46 AM Part Number: 128679-006 File name: Ch04
After removing a hard drive, CD-ROM drive, or a diskette drive, place it into a static-proof bag. Do not use excessive force when inserting a drive into a drive bay. After inserting a hard drive into the hard drive bay, always reinsert either the original hard drive security plate or the tamper-resistant security plate to prevent the hard drive from accidentally disconnecting. Avoid exposing a hard drive to products that have magnetic fields such as monitors or speakers. Avoid exposing a drive to temperature extremes or to liquids. If a drive must be mailed, do the following: place the drive into a bubble pack mailer or other suitable form of protective packaging; label the package Fragile: Handle With Care.
