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?

My dell dimension 4600 is not recognizing my ipod shuffle


Does it recognize any other usb device you stick in the port?

Try a different USB Port, maybe the one you are using is bad.

Do you get a message saying your device will run faster if it was connected to a 2.0 USB device?

If so you could try updating to a 2.0 usb device which goes into one of the PCI slots inside the computer for less than $15.

Click the link below to purchase a 2.0 PCI USB adapter. when the site opens just type: PCI to USB Adapter in the white search box at the top of the webpage and hit GO. Sort the results by Prices Low to High.

I use the one in the link below for computer repairs. It costs $9.99

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.

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.

I have a reformatted hard drive in a Dell dimension 43000. Now on turning on I get NTLDR is missing message. If I use F2 or F12 to try & correct the set up the USB keyboard stops working so I am then...


Reinstall the Operating system (Windows). Missing file is from there. Many computers don't switch on USB when in BIOS - borrow a keyboard with a standard PS/2 plug on it, but the USB will be fine once the Operating System is reinstalled.

Flash drive not working


An option that you could do is to plug the flash drive in the back of the computer. The reason is because flash drives derive power from the USB port itself unlike other usb devices that you are using may have their own power or because the USB port in front does not give as much power as the one from the back.
