Gateway USB ports stopped working

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.

Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

2 of 4 USB Ports Not Functioning


Most likely a motherboard problem, though you can try and re-do windows, best bet on getting it all to work is Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Though this might really get on your nerves having to do this multiple times, id get a new motherboard.
