Run the Dell Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA). You do this by holding on the "Fn" key while the computer is off. Then press the power button while holding on the "Fn" key. Just follow the on screen instructions. Take note of any error codes. If the PSA passes, go for "Test System". Then on the main diagnostic page, click on "Express Test". If all test pass, then the problem is with Windows. Then there's a need for you to reinstall the OS or do a Dell Factory Image Restore.

Would appreciate if you rate this solution if this helped.

Thanks, Alex

USB ports quit working

I had this happened to me also. you need to check the system bios to see if something shut the USB ports off. normally hitting DEL or f10 prior to bootup will put you in the system BIOS. Normally all usb ports disable because a device was unplugged without properly shuting the device off.
