USB Ports Not working

I have a Gateway Laptop, 4540 GZ and none of the USB Ports are working. I have restored the system and all the drivers look fine. I think it may be the motherboard, other thoughts out there? Anyone know step by step instructions to replace the motherboard?

You need to go to device manager and look in the list at the bottom for the usb root hub and see if there are any red crosses or exclamation marks, red crosses mean device dissabled, exclamation means not recognised and no suitable driver. click on the link below and select motherboard downloads for the usb drivers http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?param=usb&st=kw If you do find that the motherboard is faulty, then you can purchase a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card, as long as your notebook has the PCMCIA slot, as i am sure it has.

My NV55c laptop usb ports on the right side suddenly have stopped working.


Motherboard issue.assuming all the drivers are properly installed. Not uncommon. Use the remainder and if necessary get an adapter to increase the number of ports you have.

Usb ports on laptop won't work


You need to get into your "Device Drivers" located in your "system" to see whether they are shut off. Go to your control panel to find your "System" files.

You may need to click on each one and update the drivers.

I hope this helps.

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

Gateway USB ports stopped working


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.
