Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

USB HUB, Receiver & Keyboard

Something really bizzare has happened. I've lost the use of my USB keyboard, 8 port usb 2 hub and USB receiver.

The USB ports still work because I can use other devices (iPhone, External HD, USB disk etc.)

But when I plug one of the generic USB devices in (say keyboard) it asks if I want to install automatically and then fails (no driver available).

Any thought?

    Sounded like a plan so I removed SP3, rebooted and re-installed and re-booted.

    Problem still exists unfortunately!

My laptop is simply not recognizing my futaba interlink controller via usb hub. i know the hub works because i plug something else in and it works fine...I'm thinking just bad controller maybe?


Well i'm having the same problem.
My mouse & keyboard work trough the hub, however when i plug an USB-stick in, it wont recognize it.

I've i put my USB-stick in another USB-port, it works.

So try putting your usb, in another USB-port, thats not from your hub.

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

If you are using a usb hub it could be the problem; try disconnecting the hub. Try to plug the pen drive into a usb port on the pc not on a hub. If the usb hub has a separate power supply make sure it is working. Hope I was of some help, Thanks for using FixYa

The key board just stopped working. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in. I have also tried rebooting the computer


The keyboard fuse on the motherboard might be gone.
If you are tech savvy, check the motherboard's keyboard fuse (it may be disguised as a 0 ohm resistor).
Easier check is see if all the lights on the keyboard flash when you turn on the system.
If not, it's probably that darn fuse.
Easiest fix for the non-tech savvy is to get a USB keyboard.

IF YOUR KEYBOARD CURRENTLY IS USB then there might be something wrong with the power to that USB port...but if that's the case, it might be the keyboard that did it, so don't go plugging the keyboard into all your other usb ports...get another keyboard, preferably one with a PS/2 connector.

Ps2 port doesn't recognize Microsoft Optical mouse


You might think about a USB hub for all your USB devices. ps2 port is more or less dedicated for mouse, which is why your mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen. Go ahead and get an externally powered USB Hub to power other USB devices. To answer, ps2 for mouse needs just a mouse, not USB device.

A usb has exceeded the power limits of its hub port


Simply put its what it says.

you have too many devices drawing power from the USB ports of your laptop.

A fix for this is to use a USB hub but it MUST be one with its own power supply.

Hi-speed USB device plugged into non-hi-speed USB hub


Hi Shiva,

Did you try to boot into your BIOS and check the settings for your USB port? Often you can set the compatibility mode there.

Secondly, try to connect the usb device to different USB ports on your PC, they might not all be connected to the same controller (front or rear for example).
