USB PORTS NOT WORKING

I used have XP before I upgraded to Vista. It was all fine for about 2 months until one day i wen to my computer and inserted my usb. The usb light flashes for a sec then it gone. Like there is no power. My computer doesn't detect a single thing. Nothing about anything malfunctioning or anything. I right clicked on My Computer and went to "manage". I Selected the Device Manager option and at the bottom of the list on the right I found Universal Serial Bus Controllers. I Checked to see if the port is listed and if it has an error. There was no yellow question mark or exclamation point. There is nothing like that my computer see's that everything is working and updated.Even my front panel usb's aren't working. There doing the same thing as the back ones, which are intergrated to the motherboard. I thought that the back and front usb's didn't have anything to do which each other besides connecting to the motherboards chipset. Well, I had 2 of the same motherboards. I was using one of them in my computer and the usb ports were working fine. I accidentally fried that motherboard and had to switch to using my other motherboard in the same computer but the on that was fried had that usb problem. So im guessing something on my mother is fried or something. Really CONFUSED. Not sure what to do............

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.

I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

If you have the original 3D file manager disk, the drivers are on there. In XP, With the sewing machine unplugged from the computer, insert the disk in the cd drive and explore the disk. Copy the "drivers" folder to your desktop. Plug in the Pfaff 2140/2170 to the usb port. Windows will ask for a driver disk. browse to the drivers folder on your desktop and open it, windows will highlight the driver it needs and click "OK". This worked on my wife's 2140 upgraded to 2170 software and you must always use the same usb port, or go through this routing again.

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.

USB PROBLEM- NEED ATTENTION NOW


Here is another option: you can see if your computer has even recognized the device by going into the computer management again, accept this time check the "disk management" instead of device manager. You should see your hard drive listed and hopefully your flash drive is there as well. If it is try right clicking on the drive and select "change drive letter..."select something like "x" and see if that helps it to appear.

I know you may not want to hear this, but If this doesn't work you may need to resort to adding a PCI card with some new ports on it.

You'll be able to tell by a yellow question mark or exclamation point. Once you know that you can finish solving the problem
