Question about Computers & Internet
I have a gateway notenook MT6452 and the USB ports stopped working one at a time. In the device manager it shows to be working properly. When I install a USB device it shows the device driver is not recognized. I have 2 1.1 ports and 2 2.0 ports, right now only 1 1.1 port works. Any ideas. I have already uninstalled and then restored my notebook with backup.
So maybe you need to install the drivers for the USB device you are trying to connect. Also, with the computer off, try cleaning all USB ports and plugs. You can buy electrical cleaner in a spray can at Radio Shack. Let it dry thoroughly before powering up. But to me it sounds like a driver problem. Unless maybe your USB BUS is going bad.
