Gateway M320 USB Ports Stopped Working

All was great until the last time I plugged my blackberry pearl to sync with the computer. That was the last time my ports worked. Tried removing and re-installing ports on system hardware. deleted the ports and re-booted. Windows shows the ports are working great! They are not working at all. Completely re-installed windows from scratch. This is a hardware problem for sure. Is there a fuse or reset?

Just in case, Microsoft has a downloadable fix-it for non-responsive USB ports. Not sure if this will help, but might be worth a shot. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page for the download button:

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.

Hi, my USB ports just stopped working three days ago. And it seems that I cant even upgrade the BIOS.... SOS


I will be very surprised if there is a BIOS problem. More likely to be either a driver problem or a power problem.

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

My USB Ports of Sony Vaio VGN FW235 stopped working


first remove all the USB Devices connected to the Computer, go to Device Manager, uninstall all the USB Drivers and restart the Computer. after the restart, the Operating System should reinstall the USB Drivers automatically as the USB Drivers are Operating System generic.
If this does not work, go to Device Manager, right click on the USB Device having Yellow Exclamatory mark and click on Update Device/Driver and select search for the best driver in these location and in the location type C:\Windows\inf and click next.
This should resolve the issue.
If this does not work, you can try performing the System restore where the USB ports are working normally.

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.

USB DEvice not recognized


My apologies faizakhatib. I see that you did, indeed, provide the make and model of you laptop. Thank you for that.

Some additional suggestions:
(A) Please, make sure that your laptop's A/C adapter is plugged in while trouble-shooting this issue. We don't want to complicate the matter w/ a possible low-power issue.

(B) Worse case, your laptop's USB interface may have failed (hardware failure). To repair this would necessitate replacing your motherboard. You can work around this issue, however, by using a laptop PC card w/ USB ports.

Please, get back to us w/ your answers and we'll work w/ you to diagnose this issue.

Thank you,
BJ

Usb ports


You'll want to verify your computer recognizes your usb ports.
In device manager, look to see that you don't have anything with an exclamation mark, question mark, or red X on it. Make sure you have the usb ports listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers. If nothing shows, your usb ports may be dead. Depends on the age of your computer and what might have happened to them.

Device manager- right-click My Computer and go to properties, then select the hardware tab.

USB PORTS STOPPED WORKING


The Mp3 player may need a powered USB2 supply and not a peripheral powered supply. The only reason your other usb ports may not work is that the controllers need re-installing or they are not enabled; see this post:- http://www.fixya.com/support/t125452-another_device_installation_underway
