Try reinstalling the chipset drivers from the acer web site at http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/AS3680_Chipset.zip

This set of drivers should fix the usb port problem

Flash drives do not need a drivers (plug and play). There are several possibilities:

1. Assumptions: USB port error, computer drivers normal, normal flash drive.
Solution: insert a flash drive into another USB port. If the USB port 1 is not detected, insert flash drive into a USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4.
2. Assumption: normal USB ports, computer driver error, a normal flash drive
Solution: reinstall the chipset drivers, or USB.
3. Assumption: normal USB port,
computer driver normal, flash drive is broken
Solution: try to insert the flash drive into another computer. If the flash drive is not detected, it means your flash drive is damaged.

Solution to determine the cause of damage:
1. If you have a USB mouse, use the mouse to check the damage to the USB port. Example: connect the mouse to the USB 1, USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4. If every USB port, mouse is detected, the conclusion normal USB port
2. To check your computer's drivers, right-click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager

3. If points 1 and 2 are normal, the possibility of flash drive damaged.
Because the new flash drive, flash drive is most likely normal. Based on experience, cause damage to the flash drive is a USB port is dirty. The USB port is dirty, can cause short-circuit flash drive. The characteristics of short-circuit flash drive. When inserted into a USB flash drive (about 5 seconds), the temperature of the flash drive become extremely hot. If there are problems like this, immediately unplug the flash drive, to prevent permanent damage.

I hope this information helps.

Ok i have this mouse that does not work when i plug it into the usb port. the mouse dosent light up or any thing... what do i do?


First thing to do is to determine which one is at fault : is it the mouse, or the other way around?
Here's how :
  • Try another (known working) USB port
  • Try the mouse onto another known working computer
  • Try another known working mouse
  • Try another known working USB device (flash drive, etc) on USB port
Typically, the mouse needs replacement if it still does not work with another known good usb port or computer. If it's the other way around, then you may have USB port issues with your system.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Computer will not find flash drive


Does the flash-drive work on *ANY* computer?
If not, the problem is the flash-drive.

Does your computer have more than one USB port?
Does it work in *ANY* port?

Does a *DIFFERENT* USB-device (mouse, keyboard, printer) work in the USB-port that you are trying to use? If not, the USB port has a problem (either software or hardware).

USB drives Not working


this problem seems mostly with the usb mouse, the best solution is to plug the flash drive in one port and usb in other and restart the computer generally this always works but if it wont work then the best thing is i also did that, buy a 4-port usb hub and connect it with laptop and connect your usb mouse with this port not directly to your laptop and when you like to use your flash drive plug it in the laptop.
this is working with be perfectly and i hope it will do the same at your side.

Aspire 3610 USB ports


I think you might have a loose cononection for the data ports. Try putting a little bit of force on the usb device. Up, down left right. NOT ALOT. If it starts working when force is used, i tihnk you should try to take it apart and resolder the connections. If it dosen't work, uninstalling the driver and installing.
