I'm really puzzled with this one: Vista shows neither my digital camera or my MP3 player plugged into my USB ports. However, my HP thumb drive shows up fine in the same ports in the front of my machine. Why would a static memory drive work fine but two capture and playback devices Not work?

Any thoughts? Thanks for any help.

A:USB ports have stopped working - partially

Please plug in the digital camera and the MP3 player.
Then check Device Manager to see what it has to say about the 2 devices.
To get to Device Manager, go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Let us know if the devices are detected.
Let us know if they have any problems (red x's or yellow !'s)
Let us know if there are any unknown devices.

There is some problem with my font USB ports. All was fine until yesterday when they stopped working. I havent made any hardware change. Installed windows 8 but that was last week.

I connect my Logitech Gamepad, the LED switches on but it doesnt show up in the control panel, works when connected to the rear USB port.

Please help..

A:Front USB ports suddenly stopped working

You might have to open up your case, trace back the cable, and re-plug it. It could be detached, or the USB controller on the front ports could be fried somehow too.

I have an Inspiron M531R-5535 and about 3 days ago I noticed that none of the USB ports were working when I tried to back up my phone.  The next day, the Ethernet port failed.  It is not the wire, as it works on a different computer.  My WIFI is working fine, but it is really slow, so I would love to be able to get the port working again.  I am extremely unknowledgeable about computers, so any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

This is a brand new custom built PC for web browsing for a motel lobby.

Win7 Home Premium
AMD A4-3300 Llano
MSI A55M-P33 FM1
Rosewill FBM-02 MicroATX Mini Tower

Running latest BIOS and latest drivers downloaded directly from manufacturer's website.

I tried switching between all 3 internal headers and none of them would detect the flash drive.

If I plug the drive in the rear ports it detects right away leading me to suspect the case's ports might be defective but I don't have another USB 2.0 card lying around to confirm.

Based on this info does it seem likely that the front ports themselves are faulty?

A:Front USB ports not working, but rear USB ports work…

You might check to see if the case end of the USB cables are properly plugged into the front panel holding the headers. Some board need more than one brand of USB drivers, Renesas, NEC, etc.

I have an EVGA 750i SLI FTW motherboard and recently (after moving the motherboard to a different case) there is no sound coming from the rear ports. When I connect headphones to the front, the sound works. Is it a sound card problem (I'm using the integrated card)? It's not a big deal, I can just pick up one for 20-30 bucks but I just want to know the problem beforehand. Thanks in advance.

A:Sound issues: back ports not working, front (headphone) port works

the front ports are most-likely canceling out the rear ports, unless you've dealt with a similar setup that worked fine.

Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated

A:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

Hey guys.

I'm having a rather unusual issue with my USB 3.0 ports (Asmedia) on the front side. The back ones work fine so I'm unsure if it's anything to do with the drivers or even in the BIOS? Could anyone suggest any troubleshooting methods?

I have a Gigabyte motherboard in a Antec Lanboy case. The case has two front USB ports. The USB ports do not work with most devices. For example if I plug in a USB key or a webcam I get the balloon that says "the device may not be recognized". But if I plug in a keyboard, mouse, or RF receiver, it works. Could it be that the front ports are USB 1.1 or are underpowered? I've read that Gigabyte USB connections are a bit different, but I've checked them before and are as illustrated in the manual By the way, I'm on XP SP2 and the USB connections from the mobo are not a single block - they are individual pins.

I built my computer November 1st 2007. Ever since then I haven't been able to get the front mic or audio ports to work. My front USB ports work fine though. I just recently started wanting to use them, so I didn't worry much about it until now.

I reinstalled all my audio drivers and chipset drivers, specifically the vista 64-bit ones (thats my OS) included on the motherboard disc. My rear audio works fine. Also, I'm 100% positive that the front audio cable is plugged into the motherboard correctly.

Whenever I plug something into the mic or audio port, it goes in fine, but my computer doesn't detect it.

Computer info:

XFX, Nvidia 650i Ultra motherboard.

Integrated Realtek audio.

Apevia X-Cruiser case (just in case it might be something wrong with the case)

I really appreciate any help!

I put the pins in.
I can plug something in to charge, like an iPod, but I can't access the data on it.
Any help?


A:Antec Front US Ports not working...?

Double check the connectors and make sure they are correct.
The data lines are polarized.
+ needs to be connected to + and - to -.
Make sure the cable you are using is acually a data cable and
not just a charging cable.

Hi @write_on, Thank you for posting at HP Forums. I understand that the USB does not work either with Windows 10 or Windows 8.1. According to the failure ID you gave, it is a USB failure with a code 434. It seems like a hardware failure. Please use the following link to create a case for your issue, and contact HP.

Hi guys,

My NEW PC's two front USB 2.0 ports suddenly don't work. It was OK when i first installed Win 8 on it, but since window update, the front ones just don't work anymore. I couldn't charge my phone using USB & the external HHD just keep flashing & beeping (no power source apparently upon googling). What happened? I didn't think i changed anything? Why suddenly stop working then? How can i troubleshoot? Would hate to bring the whole PC down to the local shop due to such minor issue. Appreciate your input. Thanks!

I noticed these past few days that my front USB 3.0 ports are not working. Whenever I plug a USB 2.0 flash drive into the front ports, the activity light on the flash drive itself does not turn on.

I did clean all old Windows updates using disk cleanup which may have caused the problem.

So far, I uninstalled the USB driver and tried to reinstall the software with no success.
I have attached a picture of a screenshot after the driver installation failed.
Thank you

A:Front USB ports not working, driver problem

Just a couple of questions, how did you reinstall the drivers? Through Device Manager or running from the motherboard disc utility? And did you have any USB devices plugged in when installed it?
Usually if you run the software from the motherboard disc and choose drivers you'll get a list of drivers with check boxes next to them, and any that aren't installed will be unchecked. Those would be the ones you need. The ASMedia XHCI controller is the driver for your mid board header which controls the front USB 3.0 ports and that look as if it's installed fine, so I'd run that motherboard utility and see what it shows up.
Also could you post a screenshot of Device Manager with the USB controllers section expanded.

For what it's worth I have a very similar set up in my back up rig (A10-5800k on an ASUS F2A85-V Pro) and have never got the front USB 3.0 ports working on the BitFenix front panel I added. Not saying we won't get yours working, just that you're certainly not alone with this issue.

Hey everyone I am trying to fix an HP Slimline s5-1224. The front USB ports are not working. When I tried downloading the Texas Instruments USB Controller Driver and tried running it , I got an error about how its the wrong operating system or something of that nature. I am not sure if drivers are the issue with this problem or if its a hardware issue but either way I am trying to find out. The fact that the driver wont install is kind of wierd, can it be because its for Windows 7? I couldnt find any drivers for Windows 10 for this particular desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Check within Device Drivers for any flagged items.  Check that the USB cable from those ports is still plugged into the motherboard.

We have a Prodesk 600 SFF and the USB3.0 ports on the front panel turn on and off repeatedly whenever we plug in any USB3.0 USB sticks or harddrives.  (i.e. - the device comes ready and then not ready and then ready again and then not ready all within a matter of seconds).   If we plug those devices into the USB2.0 ports there is no problem.  If we plug USB2.0 devices into the 3.0 ports, no problem.  We have this happening with both Windows 10 and Windows 7.  I've gone to the support site but do not see any drivers related to USB ports(other than USB keyboards/mice).  I've considered a bios upgrade but the box is already at L01 V02.57.  Has anyone else seen and solved this problem or does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?  Thanks.

I have had this computer for over a year, when I initially got it I noticed the two audio ports on the front of the tower were not working. I double checked to see if it was plugged in on the mother board in the right spot, it was. I decided to just leave it before anything else broke, but after a year I love my computer less and am willing to take the risk .

When I plug it into speakers into the front audio jacks (There are two) Realtek HD Audio does not give the message "A Jack Has Been Plugged In". The back ports work fine for the record.


Windows XP SP3

Motherboard: MSI 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition

A:Solved: Front Panel Audio Ports Not Working

Well I got it working after much forum searching!

"Had same problem but problem isn't the chip.
In Realtec Audio Manager, if you hover over the pink and green icons for the front panel you'll probably see they're both set up for speakers or headphones.
To solve you first need to unplug the microphone.
Then click on the 'folder' icon, which is just to the right of where it says 'ANALOG'.
Then make sure you enable fron't panel jack detection and enable the auto pop-up dialog.
Then plug the mic in, and when the pop-up asks tell it that you've plugged in the Mic.
Suggest you disable the front panel detection and the auto pop-up afterwards as it's a right pain.
You can get a similar end result if you use the 'Connector Retasking' facility - just right click on the pink or green socket icon.
Hope this helps someone.

Have you updated drivers or downloaded any programs in the last 2-3 days?

If I remove all the devices and then "Check for new Hardware", windows recognize all of them and everything works fine... Bu is just restart the pc and the error returns...

I've already updated the BIOS from Motherboard (updated it from USB, worked 100%), but when entering in Windows.

I've tryied to look for some Drivers, but didn't find nothing about USB drivers for my MB and Windows is using the "generic" USB Controllers...

On my Hewlett-Packard 110-412na machine running Windows 8.1, the USB ports stopped working a couple of times recently

Since USB is the only interface between keyboard and rodent, and I waited 20 minutes or so, I had to switch the machine off and back on again.

I looked in Device Manager where everything looked ok (no yellow flags). The properties of all the devices stated that they are all working properly.

On the second occasion I was writing in Notebook, which doesn't have automatic saving, and lost a lot of work.

What might have been the cause of the USB shutting down?

Hi I've been working on this problem online with HP for over a Ports Working Usb Stopped week They've given up and are shipping me a box to return the machine for them to fix at the factory Before I give up the PC for the time it takes them to do that I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has already successfully solved this problem My computer has stopped recognizing anything that's plugged into any USB port Device manager says the ports are active and fully powered We've tried re-installing the USB Root Hubs anyone know why there are always two of them multiple times upgraded the drivers and in a last-ditch attempt to make everything like new again we reinstalled the operating Usb Ports Stopped Working system entirely to factory condition after backing up all our data to DVDs Still no recognition of anythign in a USB port Printer says it's installed but nothing will print flash drives are Usb Ports Stopped Working not recognized nor camera or iPod Interestingly enough it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem since the iPod WILL charge in the USB port just won't sync Has anyone seen this problem before Thanks

I can't say for sure, but if you've reinstalled the OS and still can't use the USB ports - then it's time for a repair/replacement. It sounds to me as if it's a partial failure of the USB ports (the data channel rather than the power) - but I don't know a whole lot about their construction. Sorta like one of the traces that the data travels is broken, and it's broken before the split to the different ports (but this is only speculation on my part).

I may have seen the same thing at work not long ago - but can't recall the make of the system. As I seem to remember, we shipped it off for repair at the service center.

I have a AMD Proc and the USB ports all stopped working, or so it would seem. My USB mouse still makes the connect and disconnect sound and works fine. My Ipod, Dig. Cam and Printer do not work now. Inside the Chipset menu in the bios I have ALL 8 USB ports working and I still have nothing, I checked and windows says they're all working in the device manager too, am I missing something, like a driver or something that is not talking properly to the pc or windows? The other USB ports, when I connect something (Like my Ipod) make an internal sound and my ipod will CHARGE but not connect to Itunes, nor will anything other than my mouse for some reason.....any ideaS?

I have the HP envy 23 all in one touch screen, the USB ports stopped working a few days ago. Everything worked fine last week. Anytime something was plugged into the USB port it was installed like it should with whatever pop-up came up, and it was disconnected properly as well. Does anyone know what I can do to get this issue fixed? I remember having to go through this before around 5 months ago and it seems like the support team deleted the USB list and then it added back when I restarted the computer.Any help is appreciated.Thank you!

My computer crashed after doing a backup and the keyboard stopped working so I decided to remove all USBs and reinsert them then all my other USBs stopped working how do I fix this ?

And I get error 28 for all my USB drivers

A:USB ports stopped working

Sometimes this is a BIOS issue.
Reboot your computer and hit the "Delete" button, during "post".
It should be a black screen with white alpha numerics. At the bottom of the screen it may tell you to hit a different key, like F2.
In the BIOS,check your usb setting, in case it has gone haywire.

Also update the info in the "My System Specs". More information makes it easier to trouble shoot.

I am in a spot of bother since I have to give an important presentation and all of a sudden my USB ports (3) in HP pavillion dv6(running windows 7 64 bit) stopped working. I plugged my friend's ipod touch to charge from the computer and it did not work and after that none of the ports will work. I tried reinstalling the drivers, restarted the computer multiple times and even ran a virus scan but its of no use. Out of the 3 ports only one says "windows detected a problem with the device", the other 2 wont even say anything. I even checked at the registry keys to see if the USB ports are enabled and they were fine. My warranty expired this December so now I have to pay HP for any trouble shooting.
Is there any simple fix to this solution which I am missing?
Thanks a lot for your time!

Two possibility come to mind there may be more of course.

1. A USB port has become physically damaged
2. The port may be OK mechanically and the device damaged the electronics

Hi guys, after a bit of help because all of my USB ports on my FS Amilo laptop have stopped working after i installed win7.

Immediately after the installation they were ok, but since then they've all stopped working. Any device that is plugged in (Webcam, mouse, USB stick, regular camera) doesn't work, windows simply says 'the device is not recognized'. The error code is 43.

I've tried updating all the drivers, both through windows update and through the manufacturers' websites, but haven't found any updates, and i'm finding it hard to believe it can be the drivers if everything was running smoothly before.

All help would be much appreciated, cheers!

I am new here and not sure if this post belongs here, if not please point me in the right direction.  
About five month ago I built a pretty basic computer. I have been using a pretty crappy tower since then and today upgraded. I switched out all the internals and set everything up in the new tower. After booting up into windows (8.1) anything connected to any USB port would become unresponsive. Although every minute or so the number lock light would flash signifying the keyboard was receiving power for a split second. I shut down the computer and booted into BIOS and the keyboard worked perfectly. I also checked to make sure the USB ports were enabled in one of the BIOS pages. Even after this the keyboard and mouse refused to work after entering windows.

My front and rear USB 3 ports stopped working. The rear USB 2 ports still work. When I plug an external HDD into the front USB 3 ports it powers up the drive, but it isn't recognized in Windows Explorer. My USB card reader doesn't light up. Device Manager doesn't show any USB 3 devices, and nothing is showing a yellow x in Device Manager.

Any ideas? The last time I used the front ports was a few weeks ago at most. There have been Windows 10 updates since then, but I don't know specifically when they stopped working.

A:USB ports stopped working

Borrow or purchase a ps2 kb. Enter BIOS and enable USB KB/Mouse. I'm not sure it is called exactly that, but it is something similar that you will be able to find. I too have a Gigabyte motherboard (older than yours even) and have had problems with it liking USB kb inputs until I explicitly set that in the BIOS. What is weird is sometimes USB will work if that isn't set, or sometimes it will half-*** work, as in I could get into the BIOS or force the boot selection menu, but then the kb wouldn't work.

So bottom line is, I know what you are describing, but I don't know of a good fix, outside of just acquiring a ps2 kb which will get you out of this situation 100% of the time.

Go to the HP Support/Download Drivers page and type in your make and model. Download the Chipset driver for your computer. Install that. If still having problems, go to Device Manager and uninstall everything under Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Restart. But now go into the Bios, here see if there is anything for USB or Legacy control. Disable this. Now restart the computer. You should have nothing listed for USB in the Device Manager. Now reboot, go back to the Bios and enable USB. Restart and the computer will reload all USB devices. If this still fails, the motherboard USB chipset has failed, and you will need a new Mobo.

uninstall the new stuff and restart with the printer connected.
this should reinstall that device and it should work more than once.
Once that is stable, repeat with the dvd.

using the device manager, you should never see a red or yellow icon, which

I am running Windows XP SP3 on a HP Compaq NX6325.

A month ago I got all 3 of my USB ports stopped working. Device Manager shows each USB Host Controller and the corresponding USB Root Hub as working correctly.

I can uninstall the USB Root Hubs, but the 3 Host Controllers will not allow me to interact at all, i.e. I when I try to update the driver, disable it or delete it then the window freezes until I stop the process.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest from the HP website and made sure that USB is enabled.

Searching the web I have tried a few driver check programs, all of which says nothing about upgrading the USB.

One thing to mention.... from the MS website it states that USB usualy uses IRQ 9 whereas my USB Controllers are on IRQ 19.

Any help gratefully received

You cannot update...USB controller drivers, those are installed by Windows. If they are damaged, updating won't necessarily overcome that.

Go to Device Manager...ignore the hubs, uninstall each controller...reboot.

Reinstalling it with device manager
Using the disc
Using a different USB port
Replacing the adapter

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

Try unplugging all the power and let it sit overnight. Then plug in and try again in the morning. I've seen this work on occasion when all the USB ports suddenly don't work. For that matter, if simply unplugging AC doesn't work, might be worth pulling out any CMOS battery too.

Lately every time I try to connect a known working USB device, like digital camera, thumb drive, web cam, etc. I get a pop up window that says the device is not recognized. I have a printer plugged into a USB port, and it works, although I did have to reinstall the driver for it recently, because it too get the same error.
Is there a driver or drivers I should reload? What should I do to determine if it's really a hardware (port) problem? Devices will work on other computers, just not this Compaq desktop, 1.6Ghz, 2GB RAM, roughly 3 years old, XP SP3

Hello all,

A Few days ago my laptop stopped reading my 2 USB 2.0 Ports (I am using a Compaq Pressario v6000 Laptop with Vista Home Premium 32bit). I went to the Device Manager and updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, prayed to god yada yada the drivers with no luck. I also went back to a old restore point and no luck with that. My computer is fully updated and I have no other idea's what to do. I have read something about INF files but I am somewhat computer literate (enough to get me in trouble) but not enough to know about INF'S and what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advanced for your time.

Just like that, the USB ports on my DV4-1435DX just upped and stopped.  I got messages that said that USB devices not recognized.  I tried uninistalling and reinstalling the drivers for the devices, thinking that somehow they were corrupted, but no go.  When I plug the USB devices (Logitech unifying receiver for my wireless keyboard and mouse and a Bluetooth adapter) into the docking station they work fine. And wouldn't you just know that my warranty ran out in July of 2010! Anyone else have this problem?  Is it going to cost me a lot to get this fixed?  I don't want to spend money for a repair that will end up costing as much as the notebook cost in the first place.

A:My notebook's USB ports stopped working

Problem solved.  After much researching, I found a five-year-old post that suggested I remove all the USB devices from the computer, turn it off and remove the battery and leave it for a bit.  Fifteen minutes later, I started it up, plugged my peripherals back in, and voila!  It was all working again! I'm glad it's back workng again, a laptop without USB ports was a major problem, and I envisioned expensive repairs that would have made it cheaper to just buy a new one. Whew!

That day suddenly my PC's USB ports stopped working. I tried all USB ports with deferent kinds of drives(pendirve, mobile, modem) but computer is not responding. I tried reinstalling my windows 7 but remains same. I also tried Ubuntu, Mint, Hirens Boot CD etc but no OS finds my any kind of USB disc. On windows 7 I tried uninstalling and installing USB drives manually but don't work. In the mean time today at dawn one of my USB modem started working(on Win7) but after some seconds it became like before.

Can anyone figure out which problem I'm facing? Is it related to my hardware?

A:Suddenly all USB ports stopped working on win 7

First place I would start would be update all primary drivers for your PC, what ever flavor you have, desktop/laptop. Go to that vendors website and download and install all the latest drivers. If you have add on specific hardware go to that vendors site for drivers.

The next thing I would do is to rule out any Virus's, malware, spyware and adware that my be lurking about your system. It's known that some of these nasties can and do corrupt system software and hardware.

I am using Windows 8.1 on an ASUS X550C. All my USB ports (2 USB2.0 and 1 3.0) have suddenly stopped working. External drives when connected show a light but are not recognised. Graphics tablet and printers also do not work, though they do when attached
to another printer.
I have not recently done anything by way of software installations.
I have done a clean boot, but no difference. I have ensured the latest Windows Updates are installed.
In Other Devices, the USB Root HUB (xHCl) has a yellow exclamation mark next to it. Searching for an updated driver produces no result.
Everything else on the machine seems to be working ok.
Advice please.

About 3 years ago, I gave my old Pentium 4 XP custom-built computer to a non-profit agency. It worked flawlessly until about 3 months ago when ALL of the USB ports stopped working. I checked the many posts on this forum for the same problem, and have tried

doing a system restore back to October;

checking to make sure the USB ports are enabled in the BIOS (they are);

deleting all the USB ports from Device Manager and letting Windows install them again (which it did);

reinstalling the chipset drivers.
None of these fixed the problem. Given that, the conclusion I come to is that some component on the mobo has failed. Am I right, or is there something else I need to try?

A:The USB Ports *SUDDENLY* Stopped Working in my De...

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
I am assuming that the two USB ports that are working are on the back of the computer.  That the two other back ones along with the front ones are not working.  Possibly there is a conflict with the hardware information stored in the CMOS which is preventing all the USB ports from working.  I would suggest you try clearing the CMOS to see if that will correct the problem you are having.  On page #26 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual show the location of the coin cell CMOS battery.  The battery's socket will either have a little tab to eject the battery or a slot in which you can use a small screw driver to lightly pry up the edge the battery.  With the machine unplugged remove the battery and press the power button for 15 seconds.  Then reinstall the battery, plug and then boot up the computer to see if the problem is resolved.  It is normal after clearing the CMOS to have to enter the time & date when the computer is booted  up.
The link below is for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual. When working inside your system please follow all precautions and recommendations that are noted in the manual.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX, running Norton Internet Security and firewall through Windows 7. I sucessfully installed new Wireless LAN and Lightscribe system software several days ago, along with the Live Essentials, Realtek and Windows 7 Updates.

Everything was operating correctly yesterday, but when I booted up my computer today my wireless mouse refused to work. After trying a fix involving a USB stick, I realized that none of my USB ports work. The ports light up when I restart, until Windows 7 finishes logging in, and once it begins the drivers refuse to work. Is it because of the recent updates? Because I cleaned up my back-up copies? Any help will be apprecited!

A:USB Ports Have suddenly stopped working...

Have you tried disabling and re-enabling all of your USB controllers and ports in Device Manager?

If you don't know how to do get there...
Start menu > Right click on Computer > Manage > Device Manager

Moreover, to disable USB ports, go to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers button in the Device Manager. Right click each individual one and click disable. For each one. Then after each one is disabled, start from the top and do the same thing but click Enable this time. There are some dependencies in there sometimes that will disable more than one individual device, so be aware of that.

I have an older Dell Dimension 2400 running XP. The USB ports stopped working after I reinstalled XP. I checked the device manager and it says all the usb ports are working properly. Is there a way that they have been disabled? Is the device manager the correct place to check on them?

A:[SOLVED] USB ports stopped working

How do you know if your USB is disabled? What devices have you tried? You can try to go into Device Manager and right click the Enhanced Open Host Controller under USB and Uninstall it. Then Right click any device in the Device Manager and Scan for Hardware Changes, this should reinstall it. If it still doesn't work then go into the Bios and Disable USB press F10 to save then restart. Now Restart go back into the Bios and Enable USB pressing F10 to save. When you boot up it will load fresh USB drivers.

I first thought it was a virus so a scanned w/ every program out there and nothing would detect anything, HJT log was reviewed and nothing found so I went down the Registry Path and tried to repair with Registry Repair Tools to no avail. So I backed up all my files and did a complete OS re-install in CPU is still at 100%. And when this problem first started by USB ports stopped working.

A couple of strange things happened to my laptop today.
While i was using it the 2 USB ports suddenly stopped recognising the 2 things i had plugged into them, a mouse and an internet dongle. So i rebooted to try and solve the problem but when i did i got the BootMGR is missing message, so i used the recovery discs i have to bring it back to factory status but the USB ports still don`t work.
I deleted the USB host controllers and rebooted, the host controllers are back but the USB ports are not working.
Anyone know what is happening?

The laptop is,
Toshiba Satellite c660/c660D
Windows 7 (was ultimate but now Home Premium as recovered)
AMD V140 Processor 2.30GHz
2.00GB RAM
64 bit OS.

A:Solved: USB ports stopped working

It looks like a hardware problem, the restore would normally install the correct Usb drivers.

You can try running this, it's the chipset utility from Toshiba for your laptop, it should install Usb drivers :-
Unzip the exe file and run it.

If that doesn't help you may have to buy a PCMCIA Usb adaptor or similar.
Are there only 2 Usb ports on the laptop ?

Tell us the brand and model of computer, whether a desktop or a laptop, and the location of the usb ports... whether front or back, or whether we are talking about a powered external hub, or a multimedia box in the middle of the computer which has a 9 in 1, 15 in 1, or similar memory card reader with USB ports.
Are the USB ports built into the case, or on a pci card slot on the back of the computer.
Generally, USB ports do not fail. There are a few times when they do because any electronics made with chips, thyristors, and printed circuits can fail. But USB ports are among the most rare of failures... except when you are using multiports.
On inexpensive USB connections, they all share one connector... If you have four or five ports on one connector to the motherboard, then those in use will reduce the power that is accessible on lower quality units.

A:Ethernet ports not working & logon screens slow

Yes, they could be related.

The easiest thing to try is to take the ethernet cable from the computer that works, but keep it in the same router port, and plug it into the computer that does not conenct and see if the lights come on.

You can check on the connection status by going to Control Panel -> Network Connections -> and the selecting the correct Local Area Connection.

You can also go into Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and check to see if there is a driver problem. You can even uninstall the card and reinstall it if you have the driver on CD. Make sure you note any settings for the connection first so if you need to you can restore them later.

If its a bad card and it came with the computer then it should be a warranty issue if it comes down to that.
