USB 3.0 Ports Not Working - Y580

Q: USB 3.0 Ports Not Working - Y580

Y580, Win10 I just purchased a used Y580 cheap because it has non-functional USB 3.0 ports. The USB 2.0 port works fine.When I plug in a USB cable, it doesn't register anything, as if there's no power to the ports. Which leads me to believe it's not a driver issue...but I could be wrong about that. My thought was that the controller on the motherboard might be bad, but I don't know much about laptops, honestly. I'm more of a desktop guy when it comes to hardware. I'm not even sure if the USB controller is onboard or a separate board in the laptop. Any ideas on how to fix this, or am I just out of luck? Thanks. - Brian

My front left USB 3.0 ports stopped working a few days ago.  They can still provide power via a USB to Micro USB adapter cable, but will not recognise or power my mouse or headset. My device manager indicates that my Intel(r) USB 3.0 Extensible host controller cannot start (code 10).  I've tried reinstalling this driver, but that didn't sovle the problem. My rear right USB 2.0 port functions regularly.  My front right USB 3.0 port does not work because it has been physically damaged. I'd really like to have at least 2 functional USB ports to work with.  Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong with my left ports, or how I could replace the right front port?  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.

Hey guys, brand new kid here. Fairly computer literate but not a whiz by any means. I had to do a Windows XP System Recovery on my HP desktop PC a few weeks ago and since then my USB 2.0 ports haven't been themselves.

Before when I used my Kingston 4gb SDHC card in my front USB 2.0 ports (as they're labeled) it worked at full speed with no problems. After the System Recovery, when I plug in the card it gives me a message saying "This device could perform faster if it were plugged into a High Speed USB 2.0 Port." The problem is, my Device Manager lists a high speed port and hub on my computer, but I get the same message on all the ports on my computer. I tried updating the drivers and uninstalling and reinstalling them but to no avail.

Is there any way to fix this?

Hey
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
Thanks
 

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 newegg.com 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

I then tried my psp and did somthing similar(goes into usb mode an dsays the usb is connected but still doesn't show up under my computer). I then tried a different plug ( thinking i had plugged in the case usb ports wrong) but the usb ports that came attached to the mobo gave me the same results.

Hello all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong place.

For a few weeks now my USB ports have not been working. I was on Windows 8 but have since upgraded to 10, but they still do not work. This is my phone and iPod, and both work on other computers with the same cables.

I've tried all of the obvious things, and basically applied all of the online advice, but to no avail. Interestingly, I turned Windows Defender on the other day and on the restart, the connected iPod worked until I disconnected it and it didn't again...

Have tried removing the USB Root Hubs but that doesn't really work because they re-appear before I can reboot.

Can anybody help please? It's frustrating because I need to sync files from my phone onto my computer, and put Motorhead on my iPod.

Many thanks,
H.
 

A:USB ports not working...

Do other devices like mice, keyboard, USB sticks/drives, etc work or is it just the phone and iPod that don't work?

What computer do you have? Does it have both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports? USB 3.0 generally have a blue inside whereas USB 2.0 ports are generally black.

Have you tried the USB ports on the back?

Hi All

Hopefully just a quick problem...

I was engaged in some heated chat with a girl i met in the Yahoo! chat rooms when before i knew it we were sparking up the Web Cam's(haw haw haw)... now my only problem is... i recently upgraded my computer to this.

Asus A8V Deluxe MB with USB 2.0
Athlon 64 3200+

Now ive never had a problem like this before, and as far as i can see all the USB controllers are there and appear to be software active, i checked BIOS and all seem correct, although to my only semi-triained eye.

Now my computer was formatted so i had only just tried to re-install the web cam when i realised, and as far as i can see its not even getting power.

Any Ideas guys/gals ??

I just installed a new Mobo (KV8-VM) into my computer (running windows xp). The computer is now working fine, except for the USB ports, which are not responding. Power is still being drawn from them, as my Zen can still charge, but it can no longer be found by my computer. The same is true with a seagate portipal hard drive. When viewing the device manager, I found that the VIA USB Enhanced Host controller has either missing or corrupt drivers. Anyone have any ideas?

I recently added a 512mb stick of RAM to a computer running XP. Immediately following, (perhaps by coincidence) none of the devices plugged into the USB ports are recognized. I tried two different devices, an HP Photosmart printer and a flash drive into multiple USB ports and none of them were recognized.

The new stick of RAM is posting, so I know the addition of the RAM may not necessarily be the problem. I have the most current drivers installed for the printer, so I know this is not the issue.

I read on another forum http://www.techsupportforum.com/microsoft-support/windows-vista-support/218291-usb-s-stop-working-when-i-install-more-ram.html
where a user reported having exactly the same problem while they were running Vista. The solution was to delete said corrupted USB files, reinstall the RAM and then plug the devices back in...

Does anyone have any insight into how to do this?
 

A:USB Ports Not Working/New RAM the Cause?

I agree the ram most likely did not cause the problem.

Check device mgr for any yellow marks. If everything looks normal, you can try this reg fix for usb problems. Note make a restore point before you begin this task. The following is a fix posted by John Will [another mod]

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- 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.

Using xp sp1. Device manager says the ports are enabled and working but they definately aren't.
They were working last week. Removed some viruses from my system today. Could that be the problem?
These ports are hardwired to the motherboard however when we attached an external usb device it wasn't recognized either.
I totally confused, please help.
If you need more info let me know. I've been working at this for hours now and my head hurts.

If this wont fix the problem can anyone help me or point me in the right direction, I have tried almost everything I can think of.

a few things to note is that i get power to my mouse in only 1 of the usb ports but none of the others, Im running windows xp and have never had this problem before
 

A:5 out of 6 USB ports not working

Do you have PS2 ports on your machine? If so, borrow a keyboard and mouse with PS2connectors and make sure they work before you try this fix. If you don't have PS2 ports, Google "boot to Windows without logon screen", then set your machine up to boot to Windows without the logon screen. Test the machines booting a couple of time to make sure it boots to Windows without logon.

Next after you are sure the machine is either working with a PS2 mouse and keyboard, or is booting to Windows without a logon screen. do this.

USB drivers are in Windows. Unplug all USB devices. Go in to Device Manager, expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers, you should get a drop down menu of all USB controllers and hubs. Right click on each item individally and click on uninstall until all the controllers and hubs are uninstalled. Reboot the machine, and Windows should re-install all the USB drivers.

After Windows reinstalls all the USB drivers if USB devices still do not work, then you very likely have a motherboard problem.

When a USB device such as a flash drive is plugged in, the computer does not react at all. It does not find the device nor does it show (not even as unknown) in the device list. However when I boot the computer with the device plugged in, it works fine.

IThis may be related. I have an 'Unknown Device' that periodically pops up and then disappears. I've tried many software programs & checks but nothing can identify it. I have the latest Intel chipset drivers installed and my drivers through DriverMax are up-to-date.

I would appreciate any help.

A:USB ports not working

I you have not already done this, go into the BIOS (integrated peripherals) and find all USB controllers....anything that says USB on it and make sure it's enabled. For some reason, I have seen BIOSs that have certain USB function disabled be default. One was disabled on a Gigabyte board I got a few months ago. There must be some reason they have, but I would just make sure. It may be something simple like this. Hope this helps.

A:USB Ports Not Working

Go back to device manager, look for little yellow warning markers. If you see any uninstall those drivers and then go to the website and update them.
If there are no yellow warning markers, uninstall the mouse driver but leave mouse plugged in, then boot. Lets see if you get an updated driver.
If you have the DVD that came with the mouse, uninstall driver and use the DVD, again.

Uninstall all the drivers for the USB ports and then boot the computer, see if that works.

I don't think there is an easy answer to this problem, its a Dell desktop and after a power cut non of the usb ports are working therefore my keyboard and mouse aren't working either, There are no ps/2 ports to use instead, it was booting into windows but with all the repeated turning off it now boots to a screen giving me a choice of boot up modes neither of which I can choose therefore it just sits there and goes no further. I fitted a PCI card with 4 x usb ports on it but of course it can't load the software for that therefore it won't recognise the keyboard/mouse. its a bit of a catch 22 situation.
Has anyone any suggestions, other than changing the mobo as that's not going to be cheap as its a Dell?

I would go with externally powered solutions. One thing you can try that shouldn't hurt anything is boot into safe mode and uninstall the usb stuff in Device Manager. On reboot Windows will reinstall the same drivers. This often fixes stuff that works but does not work correctly.

But I suspect you are sharing the internal power across too many ports.

You could network the laptop with an ethernet cable to the other computer and move the files that way.

You could take the harddrive out of the laptop and use a ide or sata (if its not very old then probably sata) to usb converter and plug it in to the other computer.

I have tried many different usb sticks and external hard drives that just dont seem to work with my computer. once i connect the device it loads up fine. the problem begins when i transfer data from my cpu to the usb storage. the transfer stops and i usually get an error balloon pop up in the bottom right corner saying that my usb device has malfunctioned and the connect usb device from my computer dissappears. my devices are fine since they work fine on my other computers and transfer files with no problem. So im assuming the problem is the usb ports of this computer. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of usb ports from device manager but didnt help. any suggestions? oh and i have a Acer Aspire x1700.
 

A:USB ports not working

The next things I'd try are:

1. "Disable" then "Enable" the USB Devices in Device Manager (different than uninstall and install)

2. Clean out all the ports with canned air

3. Open PC (I assume no responsibility if you damage your system or void your warranty) case and check that all associated wires and plugs are secure (I'd disconnect the connectors and blast them out with air, too).

4. While the PC is open, check to see if all of your usb ports are on the same card/slot (if they are, and none are working, then I'd suspect hardware; if you have ports on different cards that aren't working, I'd lean more toward software/driver issues).

I hope this helps a little! Good luck!

My friend says that ever since his sister used his computer, the keyboard and mouse didn't work. The lights on the mouse are off, but you can still access his bios using the keyboard. He already tried going into bios but said the USB ports are already enabled. The front USB ports dont work either. Sice he has no ps/2 slots, he cant use other keyboards or mouse. So he as no way of navigating through windows. He tried going into safemode but the mouse still didnt work. I'm all out of ideas. Anyone have any solutions?
 

A:All USB ports not working

Have you ruled out either the keyboard/mouse or USB ports? In other words, have you tried to plug anything else into the USB ports to see if they are still working?

Have you tried a different keyboard?

I have an Ei 204-UK pc, when I bought the pc everything worked fine. Recently my computer broke and I've had to get Windows XP reinstalled, and now none of the USB 2.0 ports are working. I've searched around and it tells you to go into the device manager and delete all of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers, but there are none showing.

Can anyone help?
 

A:USB ports are not working.

You post that you reinstalled windows; did you install your chipset drivers?

As a general rule, you install in this order;
1 Install os
2 Update to latest service pack. For xp sp3
3 Install chipset/mb drivers
4 Install sound, nic, drivers as necessary
5 Install video driver

Now make an image of the system as a clean install. If you ever need to reinstall again, it takes all of 5~10min to restore the image.

Now do windows update and install ALL critical updates.

I updated the bios, and just about everything including the chipset.

Yet when i plug in USBs to the usb ports on either the front of back of my case, OR the media reader I have, it says

This USB Device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.
For a list of available ports, click here.

When i click on it, none of them are high speed ports, yet this motherboard is good quality from what i see.

Anyway to fix this?

I have 4 USB ports on the back of my PC and 2 on the top. They have all stopped working.

I noticed this when my USB mouse stopped working. I tried the mouse in all of the ports and it didn't work in any. I then noticed that the external hard drives that I had plugged in did also not work - they do seem to power on but the PC does not recognize them.

I have been able to get the PC working by plugging in the (non USB) type of mouse but can't seem to get the USB ports working.

I am running Windows XP Pro.

I suggest you do as the Asus guy said. Backup your important data and reformat and reinstall the OS. If that doesn`t help, It`s probably the mobo that`s faulty.

Go into the Bios and see if there is any settings for USB, make sure it is enabled. If this is a desktop computer and it has PS2 ports use a PS2 keyboard and mouse until you get the drivers installed.

what has happened is that the connectors in the female part of the usb port has broken off

now it is useless

since they work off of the same cable inside your pc the other one won't work either

what you neeed to do is order a new set up for those front ports from the manufactor of the pc or go (http://www.tigerdirect.com) and look to see if they carry that part , it may be a factory part only !!! you may have to get an exspansion kit to have external one that connect to the back to have that luxgury back

Almost a coincidence that my previous laptop was an Aspire 5735Z. Unfortunately I never encountered this issue when I did a clean install of Windows 7.
My first thoughts are wondering if you have installed all the drivers for your laptop? Windows Update does not always find up to date drivers concerning your model of laptop.
For the drivers, click here and enter your model.
The most important drivers are the ones in the category AHCI, AMT and Chipset.
Install the drivers, restart your PC and tells us what happens.

More than likely, it's not that the ports aren't working, it's probably because Windows does not come with the drivers for those peripherals. You will need to download the drivers from the manufacturer of the products.

What is the exact error you get when you plug them in? Nothing at all? Not recognized? Cannot locate drivers?

Try uninstalling all the "USB Root Hubs" in Device Manager (right-click >> Uninstall), then restart Windows to re-install them automatically.

I found this error and i think it has something to do with it just because it mentions USB . It says that window has stopped using this device because it reported a problem "error code 43". I know the front usb ports are probably disconnected but i'm just trying to fix the one in the back, because it has more then enough which is 5, but only 3 is working.. the other 2 isn't. Any help would be appreciated.

A:USB ports are not working

Lets start with proper specs in proper place.
