Question about Sharp Actius AL27 Notebook
The USB ports worked great until I got hit with a virus. A local computer store had to reload Windows XP Home Edition. The computer works well, except for the fact the USB ports no longer function as they used to. The ports now allow me to plug in an external hard drive and my printer; but the ports don't recognize either a wireless mouse or a mouse pluged into the lap top on a USB Port. Is there a way to fix the ports so that they recognize the mouse? Sharp AL27.
I fixed the problem by going to "Device Manager," then to the "Universal Bus". Under "Universal Bus" are a list of the individual USB ports. You have to delete each one individually. When you delete each one, a window opens up which gives you various headers; select "drivers" and hit "uninstall". When you hit "uninstall", windows will ask if you want to proceed. Select "Yes". You'll then get a "warning" that the computer may not work correctly if do this procedure. You want to proceed with the deletion of each Universal Bus port. Once you've removed the Universal Bus ports, then reboot windows. Windows will detect the individual Bus ports and find new drivers for them. Once the drivers are installed (automatically by Windows), the USB ports will be operational.
