Dead USB Ports...

Seems both USB ports are dead.  Tested both with numerous usb devices

that work well on all other laptop in the office.

Reinstalled two "fixes" from HP Tech Support. Attempted System Recovery to two month ago. No change in system so would not restore to that point. Was working properly until day before yesterday.

First go into Device manager and see if there is a Yellow! or a Red (x) next to any of the USB ports. If so right click and there will be a tab with solutions. If that doesn't get you anywhere go into BIOS and search for all of the USB ports. You should be able to add or turn onto Automatic to get them going. USB is simply a port, so some kind of the way the ports either got shut off or they are blocked.

Intel d 865 gsa mother board is working but not display no beep what is the problem


i thinks it's not working, check again.....
no display, no beep.....simple symptom of a dead MB

the quality of the MB is all components will work together, even if one component in it fails the MB is dead.....

this rule is not applicable to the following devices in the MB
inbuilt sound cards, or
either of the USB ports or
mouse port, keyboard port

As you can use an external device like a USB sound adaptor insted of the internal sound card for your speaker/sound.
The same goes for mouse and keyboard, you can buy keyboards/mouse that work thru USB
The same is of a USB port, if one of the USB ports fail you have the other ports to use, if all of the USB ports fail then you can use a external USB connector to a LAN port and make the LAN port a USB device.

also.....there is no option..... that you can change one of the components.....they all are embeded in the circuit board, it's cost effective to get a new MB than repair the defective component.....

all the best

USB PORTS


does your usb mem stick have any light indicators? if yes , whenever you put you usb stick, does it light? if it lights are USB ports is still ok,  You just have to reformat or partition you USB stick.
(you can also try other devices like usb mouse or any usb devices that lights up when you connect it)

if there are no lights if you plug, or no indication that a power goes to your stick, its possible that your usb your are busted. if this is the case, if your laptop has a PCMIA slot, you can find a pcmia USB card, if you dont have. your only option is replace the  motherboard.

Usb ports not picking up memory stick


Is it just Memory Stick, or everything that you plug into USB?
Try following:
  1. plug in other USB device into ports
  2. if it does not detect any USB device on any port on your computer
  3. if both front and back USB do not work it may be taht USB is turned off in BIOS, or USB driver is corupted
  4. If you have front USBs and they just do not work there is wire connecting them to the motherboard since it may be loose, if connection is OK than they are dead.
  5. If just back USB do not work than they are dead>

Usb ports


You'll want to verify your computer recognizes your usb ports.
In device manager, look to see that you don't have anything with an exclamation mark, question mark, or red X on it. Make sure you have the usb ports listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers. If nothing shows, your usb ports may be dead. Depends on the age of your computer and what might have happened to them.

Device manager- right-click My Computer and go to properties, then select the hardware tab.

Usb ports don't work


Reinstall your USB drivers:
Navigate to Device manager, find a branch named "USB Controllers" or similar
Right click the one thats the problem (or all of them if you dont know which), select Uninstall
Reboot your machine and windows will autodetect the USBs and reinstall their drivers.

Compaq Presario v2000 w/ dead USB ports


I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario V2000. Lost both USB ports and HP tells me that the motherboard has to be replaced at $300 +..I searched and found a PCMCIA card with two USB ports for $10. No problems with the USB ports on this card..great and cheap solution.
My belief is that the compaq usb ports do not have power limiting circuitry therefore allowing you to overload the output power on the ports. My ports failed after I downloaded into a burglar alarm system I was programming.

Dead USB Ports...


Have you checked drivers not only for the usb, but for the chipset of the system itself. Also, have you installed service pack 2?

Might also just visually inspect for troublesome fingers in the ports themselves; often get bent and short out.

Good luck
