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.

Software Loading / Scanner Recogniton


Several times, I've had issues installing USB devices on Dells.  The problem seems to involve the fact that Dell has trouble recognizing the ports as USB2.  It'll recognize devices, but not all devices, and not all devices will work properly.

I know this doesn't exactly solve your problem, but I thought this tid-bit might bring you a little closer to a solution.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 computer and a Dell Photo AIO printer 966. Recently I could not get my computer to print on the printer. It had worked up to this point. I uninstalled the printer driver and...


First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop


Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

Open Run and launch regedit

USB


I had a similar problem, with no help from HP support. A USB hard drive would be recognized, and work, but a Sandisk flash drive and a Fujifilm camera would not. All drivers were uninstalled/reinstalled/updated numerous times. HP finally concluded a hardware problem. However, I noticed an updated BIOS on HP's web site to fix "USB problems" with some equipment. I flashed my BIOS with the new version, and USB now works. Some minor glitches, but acceptable..

USB powerloss?


As you have already stated that the port in question can run a standard optical mouse, the port seems to be working fine.

Sometimes the drivers for a USB device need to be installed for each USB port. Maybe you have installed these drivers for 3 of your 4 USB ports, but not for the one in question, result of which is the problem you face.

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
