Looks like a hardware problem. Get the ports checked by a local technician as a shutdown on using a port indicates a possible short in the port. Might be a physical damage to ports

Usb ports dont seem to work


In order for the usb ports to work you must have 1 usb from the computer connected to the monitor. The monitor may have a specific input port from the pc in order to activate the other ports on the monitor

My toshiba tv 40bv701b won't recognise my usb but when I pull it out it's saying usb disconnected


The most probable is your USB port(s) does not supply proper power anymore. Please unplug any other USB device from your computer, and test the other USB ports (plug in your USB device to the other USB ports).

Sound card, USB, Wifi, modem not functioning


Hello.

I hate to tell you, but that spark in your USB port apparently fried other components of your notebook. This is not a normal occurrance.

If still under warranty, contact LG Support ( http://www.lg.com/us/support/index.jsp ) to replace those parts or provide a replacement notebook.

Hope this helps.

Hi, every time i connect this to my home computer it turns it off! if i turn the computer on with it already connected it turns it off, have done initial set up on work computer and can access ok from...


sounds like your pc's usb socket has a problem, try the following...
1. Try a different usb port,
2. Using a small light (and possibly a magnifying glass) look inside the usb port on the pc for bent pins or distortion within the socket causing the pins to touch something they shouldn't.
3. check the usb cable for minor damage, try a different cable if you can, different machines use different ways of manufacturing sockets making some more sensitive to a damaged plug than others.
The pc turning off is a safety system which prevents power being sent through data ports. If the pc turns off immediately after inserting the usb cable then that's a sure sign that there is a bad connection/short somewhere between the socket and the cable.
Hope this helps.

hello

have you tested all USB ports and with other applications (ie: digital camera, cell phone, USB drive stick, etc..) ?
if one USB does work, buy a USB hub and salvage this working USB port (if that is the case here, that only one USB port on your computer functions) . This will allow you to use other USB ports on the hub . But beware you will have limited useage as to what you can or cannot plug in. USB hubs generate 500mA typically for a 4 port hub, so any peripheral requiring more than 100mA-120mA current downstream may not work on this hub.
if you need the manual to your Brother printer, go to this link and download or save onto your computer

Whenever I insert my pen drive into my pc,it restarts computer. what is the problem ?


if this is only happening on 1 usb port, there is a short in that port that is causing you PC to shut down. Your motherboard BIOS is probably set to reboot on power loss which means it will boot right back up if it shorts out.

If it happens on every USB port then your pen drive is faulty and I would refrain from inserting it anymore before you damage your hardware.

If the pen drive works on someone elses computer, then it sounds like the SOUTHBRIDGE chip (chip on motherboard that controls USB, PCI slots, firewire ports, etc) is going bad or is faulty.

I have a 1g Lexar usb key it doesn't work. My computer doesn't reconise it plus the light on the key doesn't flash anymore... pls help as i have my good photo's on it


It could be your USB port that's not working. Try inserting your flash drive into a different USB port. It is possible that the line connecting the USB port was accidentally removed or loosened inside your CPU. You can also try opening your CPU and fix the connections of the front panel wires to the motheboard.
