USB problem with Dell Dim. 4600

All my usb ports have stopped recognizing anything plugged into them.
The lights do come on on the flash drive, however it's not showing as an available drive under the list, therefore I cant access anything plugged in.
I checked the Device manager, and it is completely empty..as if this is a ghost computer lol. I'm at my wits end....help?

I can't get my usb devices to work on my dell 4600 series pc. It won't reconise anything I try to plug in to the usb ports.


Try deleting your usb drivers.

Right-click My Computer
Manage
Device Manager
USB Controllers
Delete (Generic USB Hub)
Restart computer
(Windows will auto-install the drivers, on reboot)

Plug your device back in, and see i've it works.

HP Pavilion zv6000: USB ports are inop. USB port on rear of computer works fine. USB port on left/front will power my flash drive, but the light stays on constantly. The flash drive is does NOT show up in...


After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

Otherwise you can also do the same.

Type in the product no. on www.hp.com. Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

I hope this will help.

VAIO desktop does not recognize Sandisk flash drive


Most probably you have a drive letter conflict? If so, right click "My computer" choose "Manage" and locate "Disk management" - here, in the middle lower panel, you should be able to find your usb-memory stick, right click it and assign it a drive letter that you're sure is not in use.
